Mrs Hopkins, AmaWaterways - Grand Danube
“I cannot fault Global River Cruising. I have never been on a cruise before so inevitably felt a little anxiety - which deck to book a cabin on, how long a cruise for a first-timer, help with alternative travel to avoid London Airports,....all these and others instilled a trust that was reassuring.”
Mr Collier, Scenic - Rhine Highlights
“Simeon at GRC organised a trip for four of us a couple of years ago and was excellent. So we have asked him to do the same for us again this year and once again to our complete satisfaction.”
