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

“Grand Tour of France”
- QLD, Australia Oct 2019 3 Helpful Votes

Our Grand Tour of France was excellent, the tour operator was very good and the coach driver was also very good. The tour itself was very interesting, Normandy landing beaches, Monte St. Michel a lovely island Abbey then down through the wine country. Nice and Monaco were wonderful and back up to Paris. This would be a great tour for anyone wanting to see a lot of France with value for money.

“Wonderful France”
- SA, Australia Sep 2019 2 Helpful Votes

I have been to France before with Cosmos (booked through Global Journeys) but this tour gave me a good insight into the whole of France. All the places I visited were beautiful and interesting. I went in September, good time of the year as it was not too hot and the group size was only 26. Small group, good mix and all got on well with lots of laughter.

“Fabulous tour around France”
- QLD, Australia Aug 2019 2 Helpful Votes

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 5 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.
