“Tick off the bucket list!”
- WA, Australia Aug 2019 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

What an amazing trip! We ticked so many things off our bucket list. Every day was a jam packed adventure! We got to see Mother Nature at its best. Bears, elks, eagles, salmon, long horned sheep, and this list goes on. We got to visit so many wild and wonderful towns all so different to one another. Our tour guide Ben Direen was fantastic as was our driver Big Mike. The 7 day cruise to Alaska was a nice way to finish the trip with some time to chill out as well as options for adventure on shore....read more

“Travelmarvel Reflections tour of Western Canada”
- WA, Australia Jun 2019 1 Helpful Vote

We've just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable Travelmarvel Reflections tour of Western Canada. Going early June allowed us to still see quite a bit of snow, especially on top of the mountains in Whistler. We were so lucky with the weather (warm) with just a bit of rain one night.
Even though we were a big group of 48 we all got along well. On the bus component our roller blading tour director Roneil was friendly and well organised, as was our delightful coach driver...read more

“Awesome trip through the Rockies & Alaska”
- NSW, Australia May 2019 7 Helpful Votes

This was an awesome trip. Would definitely book with Global Journeys & Travelmarvel again. Hard to pick a favourite but our helicopter trip in Juneau to the Glacier and dog sled ride would be close to be the best.

“Great holiday! ”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2018 12 Helpful Votes View Photo

Our trip was great, the coach portion was tiring with several early mornings. We have not done pre-organised tours such as this before so whilst all the details were taken care of for us it felt a bit rushed at times with little free time. The days on the Rocky Mountaineer were very long due to delays with freight trains but could not believe the generosity of the refund we received! Our tour guide, Willo was extremely knowledgeable and competent, as was the driver Claude. ...read more
