Andes, Iguassu & Beyond 0 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2022
It was a fabulous trip. Our CEOs Joy and Camilar were professional tour guides with lots of humor and knowledge and caring personalities. Our (me and my husband) highlights were the Gaucho experience with horse riding and Argentinian BBQ and the Iguassu Fall. Beautiful beaches of Brazil and the Christ Redeemer was also spectacular. The tour was well organised and people were kind. We will consider another tour in the future with Global Journeys and G Adventures. Thanks all.
