“Terrific river cruise :)”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2019 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

We totally enjoyed our River Cruise. Booking through Global Journeys was sooo easy. Communication was great and nothing was to much trouble. We found communication with Global Journeys much easier than communicating directly with river cruise company. The cruise was great - we were a bit concerned that the age demographics would be older than us but that was not the case. There was a great mix of ages on the ship and we have formed some strong friendships. There was a late change of ship...read more

“Wonderful Rhine holiday”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2017 4 Helpful Votes

Truly indulgent luxury, every need catered for and thought of. Can't recommend Scenic enough for their excellence. Sightseeing was the major attraction, with streamline efficiency getting to each destination and a well thought out program with choice of options. Local guides enhance the understanding of each place and being able to hear them with the Tailor Made device was wonderful.
