12 Day Focus on Scandinavia reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Beautiful Scandinavia”
- SA, Australia Oct 2019 4 Helpful Votes

I went in October. Not the best time of the year as it was cold and wet! Big group of 46 but our tour leader (firm, direct and friendly) handled everything very well. We had a very cheerful (always had a smile on his face), safe and skilled driver. Scandinavia is wonderful; clean fresh air, refreshing drinkable tap water, green rolling pastures, amazing sights and scrumptious seafood (plenty of salmon - I love salmon!). We all got on very well with lots of fun and laughter despite the huge age...read more

“Scenic Scandinavian Tour”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2019 3 Helpful Votes

Trip was great, sites amazing and Beatrix was a great tour leader. As I am 70, I was pleased the tour was no longer than 12 days, as the pace of the trip began to take its toll as it neared the end. On a whole the standard of the accommodation was only average, some places were good. The accommodation in Copenhagen was awful (my room at least), while the accommodation in Bromma was great. I thought it was a strange choice as it was close to the domestic terminal and everyone on tour was an international...read more

“Norway and Sweden tour ”
- WA, Australia Aug 2019 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

We had 42 on the coach with 28 Australians, 3 UK and 11 from the USA. It was a happy mix of people who’d travelled before all around the world. Quite a few had used Cosmos for other tours. The CosmosGO app was useful. We thought the tour covered many areas of the countries and it was interesting to include Telemark and the heavy water plant, connected to World War 2.

“Amazing Fjords in Norway ”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2019 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

An amazing, beautiful and unforgettable experience we had on the Focus on Scandinavia tour with Cosmos. The highlights were the Fjords in Norway and hassle free bookings with Global Journeys with the help of Yvonne. Sure we will plan for another trip soon. Our tour director Anna Losonczi and Csaba our tour driver did a wonderful job. Our tour went so smoothly. Thank you for all the job well done.

“Fabulous Scandinavian tour”
- NSW, Australia Jun 2019 5 Helpful Votes View Photo

Just returned from a fabulous tour of Scandinavia. We did our entire booking online through Global Journeys and it went very smoothly, no hiccups and was really easy. The information we received regarding our tour was all inclusive and arrived in plenty of time to peruse carefully before leaving. We had no questions and no stress with this trip.
The trip itself was lovely. Our accommodation was very good, the tour coach was excellent and we were very well informed...read more
