14 Day Grand Tour of France reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Fabulous tour around France”
- QLD, Australia Aug 2019

Our trip was absolutely fabulous, we had a fantastic holiday. We were lucky to have 37 amazing people on the trip. Most were Australians and Americans. The Tour Director was 11 out of 10 and so was the Driver. The trip was reasonably paced and we saw all the sights we wanted to and more. Included meals were good and all optional excursions were good value and enjoyable. Most of the accommodation was good except for the Ibis these rooms were very small, thankfully it's only for one night....read more

“14 Day Grand Tour of France”
- NSW, Australia Jun 2019 2 Helpful Votes

We enjoyed the tour. Would book with Global Journeys again. Also with the tour operator, Cosmos. Everyone thought it was one of the best tours they had undertaken. The weather was hot so would consider going in a different month.

“Grand Tour of France”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2019 1 Helpful Vote

I loved this tour. A friendly inclusive group of 30 from five countries contributed greatly to my enjoyment, as did our wonderful tour director, Alice, and extremely skilled and likeable coach driver, Tom. We covered so much of France during this tour and I was very happy with the pace, as it more than met all my expectations in seeing and experiencing as much of this great country as possible over two weeks. Many varied and unforgettable moments.

The tour took us to so many beautiful places, lots of gorgeous villages and towns and spectacular scenery in the Loire Valley and on the Riviera.
Some of the tour hotels had really tiny rooms, also the aircon...read more

“France sampler in 14 days”
- QLD, Australia Jun 2019 View Photo

We packed in many highlights in this intense and fun tour. Excellent tour director Camille and a great group of fellow travellers. Accommodation was usually value for money with some on the periphery of the city and the Ibis had a basic micro sized room and bathroom.
