“Wonderful and relaxing”
- QLD, Australia Dec 2019 3 Helpful Votes

What a great journey! Travelmarvel were great, all the staff and Sue our tour director were wonderful. There was no chance to go hungry... so much food and very nice. The tours off the ship were well organised and plenty of time to do your own thing if you wanted to. My favourite place was Cesky Krumlov. Had a great time and met some lovely people. Great value for money too. Thank you Travelmarvel and thank you Georgie for organising this tour for us.

“An unbelievable holiday”
- VIC, Australia Sep 2019 6 Helpful Votes

My sister ,Marianne, and I had an unbelievable holiday. The weather was good, the whole experience was wonderful. Being in "cheap" below cabins was still very good because we still had two rather large portholes. So I was happy. I can't tell you how much I loved this holiday. Everything was wonderful.
There is a down side though. In all of our communications to each other there was one thing that has to be addressed. When we got to Budapest we had a night in a hotel...read more

“An amazing Travelmarvel cruise! ”
- WA, Australia Apr 2019 9 Helpful Votes View Photo

Well, I can honestly say this was one of the best holidays I have ever had. Everything about the cruise just fell into place, due to the competence of Cherie Cooper, our cruise director! Cherie is a wealth of knowledge and has an awesome sense of humour and is really a wonderful person. I'm sure she is an asset to the company.
We were extremely lucky to have been blessed with excellent weather, and although nobody could control this, it worked well in our favour....read more

“Excellent value for money! Best holiday ever!”

We have just returned from the Xmas Markets river cruise on “the Jewel” with Travelmarvel. Travel was first class all the way. Plenty of included activities as well as several extra optionals. All the crew were fabulous and our cruise director “Emma” was very experienced and ever so helpful. This truly was a worry free 15 day river cruise. We made quite a few new friends that we plan on keeping in touch with. We plan on using Travelmarvel for our next river cruise in Russia. Booking ahead...read more

“Our tour with a difference!”
- QLD, Australia Oct 2018 12 Helpful Votes View Photo

We set off for a 15 Day European River Cruise aboard the Travelmarvel Diamond with great expectations. What we actually got was a 15 Day European Tour on the Travelmarvel Jewel, Sapphire & the Diamond, plus 2 luxury hotels in Budapest & Regensberg & many entertaining kilometers aboard comfortable coaches. Due to the unprecedented lack of water, a once in one hundred year event, we were able to do what no Travelmarvel group has yet to do, i.e. travel on each one of its fabulous fleet. ...read more
