8 Day Paris, Normandy & the Loire reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Wonderful holiday in France ”
- QLD, Australia Oct 2016

The trip was wonderful. I'd never been to northern France - only Paris, so I learnt a lot of the history about northern France. My highlight was visiting the D-Day beaches.

“Excellent tour especially for the price”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2015 1 Helpful Vote

Excellent tour especially for the price which was very reasonable. Hotel rooms were small and average but for the price that is all I expected and they were adequate. Always clean and everything worked. Tour was a good pace. We had plenty of time everywhere. Our guide Patricia always gave us a map before we arrived in each town, highlighted where the bus would be and the way to walk to the main attractions. Patricia and our driver Serge made it a very enjoyable trip.

“Amazing journey through the North of France”
- VIC, Australia Jul 2015 2 Helpful Votes

This was an amazing journey through the North of France with Cosmos Tours. The tour was well-paced, well-priced and our tour guide, Clara, was absolutely outstanding. The whole experience was pleasant from start to finish, and Cosmos are the experts in European coach travel. Having everything organized for you, and having your cases taken care of, made the whole experience such a joy. I would highly recommend this tour as it is not too long and not too short and includes some of the best sights...read more

“Good value for money”
- VIC, Australia May 2015

We were very happy with this tour. It was not luxurious, but it was good value for money. Maybe the company could raise the price a little and then include a few extras, like hot drinks after included meals etc.
