16 Day Britain & Ireland Panorama reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“The best of Britain & Ireland ”
- VIC, Australia Oct 2019 1 Helpful Vote

Unfortunately on the last leg of our flights the priority tags were removed from our luggage & then the express checkout meant nothing in Melbourne, meaning we probably got out 40mins-1hr later than we could have. While the tour director was very good, looking back on it now & even half way through the tour everything he was talking about in relation to the days events & the stores to visit was either preparing us for the feedback or promoting stores potentially linked with Trafalgar. It was good...read more

The sights & scenery of the Scottish Highlands, Ireland, Wales & England were breathtaking, our date with The Edinburgh Tattoo was a night we will never forget. We met some amazing people on our trip which always makes these tours so enjoyable, a lot of laughs, good times & long time friends were made. Gary & Phil our coach...read more

Right from the start I was looked after very well by Jemma Rosen from Global Journeys, Australia: no request was too much for Jemma from the beginning to end of my tour/travel experience...

From the time I booked my trip with Global Journeys to the completion of my holiday the whole process was a pleasure. Jemma's communication was excellent - guiding me through the process to ensure everything would run smoothly which was especially important being a solo traveller.
My Trafalgar Tour was fantastic - my fourth which shows my loyalty and faith in the brand. Terry, our Tour Director, went the extra mile to ensure every traveller had a great travel experience...read more

“Fantastic trip of a lifetime”
- QLD, Australia Jun 2019 5 Helpful Votes View Photo

This was a trip of a lifetime. As always Trafalgar was a great company to tour with. We were taken to see a variety of different scenery, attractions and experiences.
My daughter and I both thoroughly enjoyed the trip from start to finish. Our favourite would have to be the Scottish highlands and the little Laggan hotel. Beautiful food there. Another favourite was the optional Irish cabaret with the Irish dancing and Noel Gittens, the comedian. The ferry to Ireland...read more
