What Our Guests are Saying

What Our Guests are Saying

When we pay for a Journey, there aren’t any unexpected expenses. For example, when we would usually not know how much to tip, we don’t even need to think about it because they are included. There is someone else there to take care of it. Even choosing and paying for the excursions can normally be quite an undertaking and with a Journey you have that all picked out for us. The phrase we were sort of caught by was “you don’t have to touch your wallet once”.

What Our Guests are Saying

On all three of our journeys, the Journey Managers in our opinion were very knowledgeable on the countries that we were visiting. They added another dimension to the journey by giving us a lot of explanation and background information that we would not have otherwise known. When we visited Yukon and Alaska our Journey Manager Roland told stories about his experiences and introduced us to personal friends from when he lived in the Yukon years before. It made for an authentic, special experience.

What Our Guests are Saying

I join you because of your door to door service. I’m at the stage in my life where I don’t want to drive to the airport and deal with leaving my car. Traveling with a large suitcase, I don’t even want to be taking the train. The fact that somebody came to my door, picked me up and whisked me away was a real benefit. Almost more important, when we got back from our journey you brought us home because by then we were very tired. It made the whole experience that much better.
