What Our Global Villagers Say

Dave Morrissey, Facebook

The Global Village Tours crew should be knighted, by Michael D. Higgins standing on a keg of Guinness (naturally), for their ability to open the world's most exclusive borders to the people of Ireland and the rest of the world. Going on the St Patrick's Day tour in North Korea was not a once in lifetime bullshit cliche. Cliche's exist for the timid, the confined. Global Village Tours kick cliches in the arse and send you on a journey that is utterly mad and wonderful. Amazing tours from amazing people. Cannot wait to select another course from their mouth watering menu of adventure!

Duncan Casey, Munster rugby player

Global Village Tours made my trip to DPRK completely hassle free, interesting and exciting from start to finish. It was affordable, enjoyable and memorable for all the right reasons. There were so many unusual people from all over the world that there was never a dull moment. I will definitely be traveling with Global Village again.

Frederieke Van, Humanitarian Aid Worker

GVT is what you would expect from an organized tour (i.e., professional, well organized, comfortable, and knowledgeable and reliable guides), but without the negative aspects that organized tours may have (e.g. stuffy, boring, rushed, repetitive, feeling like a cow in a cattle, and fellow travelers who prefer the comfortable options over the interesting and exciting options). Not only were the tour and the guides (the GVT and the local guides) great, the fellow travelers in the group were amazing as well - it seems like these trips attract an interesting and open-minded crowd of people!

Nicola Quinn - Senior Staff Nurse ICU London

I had a truly amazing and unique experience with GVT on their Chernobyl and Transnistria tour this year. GVT made this trip a special one for me. It was well organised, professional, informative and so much fun. Travelling with GVT is like travelling with friends. I was left with many incredible memories and new friends. I can't wait to travel with them again in October to Iran. A trip that I am beyond excited about.
