What are our customers saying?
Global really listened to what we wanted and offered good advice. Our decision to travel overland by train to Hungary with overnight stops meant some considerable work but the options offered suited our needs admirably. Our choice of hotel and the specific requirements were dealt with and we look forward to a good stay and an enjoyable river cruise home.
