“Well organised tour of Tassie”
- SA, Australia Jan 2019 1 Helpful Vote

The trip was well organised. All highlights were covered. We could have spent more time in some places, like Port Arthur and Anvers. It was a small group but we all enjoyed each others' company. We were well informed throughout the tour.

“Terrific Tour of Tassie”
- SA, Australia Jan 2018 4 Helpful Votes

I loved, loved, loved my holiday, thank you Travel Marvel and Global Journeys. I couldn’t fault anything. Wally the tour director was brilliant! He was absolutely delightful, even his jokes were funny and he knew so much about the history and other interesting bits of information. We had plenty of time at each town we passed through, I never felt rushed. Dave the coach driver was awesome, there are some very tricky roads in Tassie but Dave did a marvellous job - his jokes were funny too! ...read more

“Worry free holiday”
- NSW, Australia Oct 2016 1 Helpful Vote

From the beginning to the end I didn't have to worry about anything. Global Journeys did a wonderful job looking after my booking. My holiday was unforgettable, accommodation, meals and places that we visited were all excellent. Our tour staff had great knowledge of the areas we visited and they looked after us all. I can't say enough. I had a great time. A big thank you to Global Journeys and Travelmarvel.

“10 Day Grand Tasman”

The highlight was going to Port Arthur and the scenery around this site. We travelled with a mainly older group and most were friendly and easy to travel with. The tour guide and two bus drivers were knowledgeable and friendly towards the group.

“Trip around Tasmania”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2016 2 Helpful Votes

I had a good time but probably won't use Travelmarvel again as I didn't realise it is the budget arm of APT. As such the standard of rooms and meals was pretty low, but not all of them, I have to say. There was a lot of driving around in the coach until about 4-5pm and we would have preferred to get into our rooms a bit earlier and have a walk around the area. We only had time to have dinner, then it was too dark to see anything outside and then we were off again at the crack of dawn the next...read more
