“Comprehensive Tour”

From start, with booking through Global Journeys till the end of the tour, everything went like clockwork. Yvonne Brooks of Global Journeys was prompt and attentive to all of our queries and requests. The Trafalgar Itinerary for 14 Days East Coast USA & Canada was comprehensive. Tour Director showed great initiative, tailoring our journey with interesting extras that were not mentioned in the itinerary. The driver was skilled and accommodating, making our journey safe and pleasant. We met many friendly travel companions and had a wonderful experience of unique culture (Amish Country), local food (lobster, clam chowder) and unforgettable sights (Autumn Colours). The only minor negative was the long drive on a couple of days with early start to the journey that made the trip hectic at times. Otherwise it was almost perfect.

“Fascinating trip through East coast United States and Canada”

We loved the trip and our tour director Adrian was great fun and very well informed as he had been doing this for a very long time We particularly loved Washington DC and were glad we had two nights there. We were a little disappointed in the hotel in New York but the rest of the hotels were great. Hannah from Global Journeys was extremely helpful and answered my emails promptly.

“East Coast USA and Canada”

We travelled with Trafalgar which was organised by Global Journeys starting in NY City 17 June and ending in Boston USA 30 June 2016. We were very lucky with weather throughout our journey. Coach was comfortable and the driver and travel director were very good. This was the case with our previous trips by Trafalgar/Global Journeys in Europe and USA National Parks Explore and USA Northern California and it seems we renew our amazingly good impression as time goes on. Overall experience was excellent. If we must name one place or two, Niagara on the Lake is the most beautiful village and Quebec City is most beautiful city, more European than European cities. We recommended to our two daughters and the family preferably in similar season as the most Canada, esp Niagara on the Lake, we told, is in non-action, due to severe cold weather and heavy snow, during October and April. We recommend Global Journeys!

“Simply the Best”

The Itinerary was great each location we stopped at whether we stopped for lunch or for one or two days was excellent highlights for us was Washington DC, Amish country, Niagara Falls, Quebec and Boston. The accommodation was very good quality and the inclusions both included and optional (we did them all) were terrific as were the hidden treasures that our tour director included. The tour director Ben was awesome as was the coach driver Jose. All in all a great holiday with a delightful group of fellow travellers.
