10 Day Grand Tasman reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Grand Tasman”
- NSW, Australia Nov 2019

Covered just about all of Tasmania. Well worth the trip it was just a pity that the weather was not kind to us being cold and windy throughout. The hotels, coach, and Travelmarvel staff were all very good. The itinerary was a bit rushed but you kind of expect it on these coach tours. The coach drivers have to have their rests. Yes the trip was well worth the money paid and I will be looking through the Travelmarvel brochure to book future tours with you.

“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

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”
- Queensland, Australia Oct 2016 1 Helpful Vote

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.
