“River cruise”

The best holiday we have ever experienced. Five star luxury and inclusions travelling with APT on a European river cruise. We travelled Budapest to Amsterdam onboard the Amabella and it exceeded every expectation and we would highly recommend. We booked through Hannah at Global Journeys and she was fantastic. Hannah made the whole experience of choosing and booking an absolute breeze. When we contacted her during our trip with a question regarding flight connections she got back to us with an answer within minutes, we were extremely impressed. Thank you Hannah, Global Journeys and APT for the trip of a lifetime.

“Budapest to Amsterdam River Cruise by APT”

This trip certainly lived up to our expectations and was professionally handled on a day by day basis by the Cruise Director. All on shore activities that we participated in were also very well organised an informative. We particularly liked the fact that we were treated like royalty by the on board staff and all costs including food and drinks were all included in the cruise cost. The booking process through Global Journeys was handled efficiently and all flight connections worked out perfectly.

“One of the best holidays we've had”

We had been wanting to go on a European river cruise for a number of years and we finally had the time to go. It certainly didn't disappoint. We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, there was a wonderful selection of wines on board and the staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. The scenery, the on board entertainment and the freedom of choice excursions were sensational - all the guides were knowledgeable and fun to spend time with. The cabin was comfortable and clean. We can't recommend the trip and the service we received from Georgie at Global Journeys highly enough. We are now looking forward to our next APT trip and will definitely have Global Journeys organise it for us.
