22 Day Rockies Odyssey & Alaska Cruise reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Spectacular Scenery in the Canadian Rockies and Alaska”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2018 4 Helpful Votes View Photo

The Butchart Gardens in Victoria were spectacular at this time of year. The awesome sight of glaciers - such as the Athabasca Glacier that we walked on in the Rockies; the multiple glaciers in Glacier Bay (some calving off into the ocean as we watched); and the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau - were unforgettable. Watching a young mother black bear lead her two cubs along the shore as we paddled along Blue River was a thrill.
The old gold-rush town of Skagway was...read more

“Amazing and unforgettable experience”
- NSW, Australia Apr 2018 9 Helpful Votes

From the professional and friendly service from Jemma (at Global Journeys), through to our wonderful APT land tour director, Zita and Stephanie, our cruise guide, the trip was an amazing and unforgettable experience.
It was everything we imagined and hoped for, being further enhanced by a great group of people that we toured with. We highly recommend the tour/cruise, hence the excellent rating in all categories.

“Takes the cake!”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2017 4 Helpful Votes

We have had 8 overseas cruises and land trips and can say without doubt this APT Canada and Alaska 22 day holiday takes the cake. Cruise Director Willo Jones impressed with her knowledge of history and British Columbia and was most helpful in all aspects. A credit to APT. The APT staff on our Holland America cruise were excellent ambassadors. All in all a great trip made even more enjoyable by interaction between fellow travellers.

“ This trip was brilliant and the scenery was truly amazing.”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2017 2 Helpful Votes

This is our first time with APT and would definitely travel with them again. Most of our accommodation was first class as was the beautiful food, great tour director (Jennet) and the driver (Mark) they really added to the enjoyment of the trip. We would have preferred a smaller tour group, however having said that the organisation went so smoothly, it really wasn't a problem. This is our first time with Global journeys with Yvonne and I would definitely book through them again as the service was...read more

“Canada and Alaska - What an Odyssey”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2017 4 Helpful Votes View Photo

What a trip - we all had a ball, our touring party were great bunch of people from all over Australia. Our tour guide Nancy Fletcher and Coach driver Les were truly professional through and through. Our most popular highlight was without a doubt the 2 Day Rocky Mountaineer "Gold Leaf". The entire Train crew spoiled us all so much we felt like Royals by the finish. From day 1 the whole trip went off without a hitch and we put this down to our agent Hannah Campbell at Global Journeys, our second...read more
