What a trip! I had a really amazing time Volunteering in a school to help teach English. I don't know if I would have gone to the Galapagos without this trip, though it was always a bucket list trip for me. There were a few hiccups, like there would be for any trip. But some things that made me a little uneasy before I went was that my travel coordinators kept changing and frequently. Though my last one, Jasmine, was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. (I mean they truly all were) I felt a little uneasy because of that. About 1-2 days before my trip, I didn't have the name or addresses of the people I was going to stay with. I asked and they were provided but maybe if they could just attach it to an email, that might be a little better.

Overall, the trip was amazing. Because I only volunteered between 7-1 I was able to do half-day excursions and explore the island without feeling rushed. I ended becoming really great friends with the English teacher I was assisting with. I was able to spend her birthday with her and her family. The people on the island are incredibly kind, the food is very delicious and the environment is absolutely incredible. A once and a lifetime opportunity that I am incredibly grateful for.

Hi Anna!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a detailed review of your experience with us!

It sounds like you had an absolutely incredible time in the Galapagos. It's great to hear that you were also able to explore the island without feeling rushed & made some great friends there too!

Thank you for the feedback as well about your coordinators changing, we have had some of our staff head off on their own travels so apologies if this made you feel uneasy! We have a really great internal system though so everything any one would need to know about your trip is available to us! We love hearing such positive things about Jasmine & we have passed this feedback on to her!

Thanks again for the travelling with Global Work & Travel!

She got my flights and tickets all sorted for me, in such great time. Awesome company.

Amazing and life-changing experience in Nepal. This program has not only been an incredible opportunity to do something meaningful by working at an orphanage but it also has allowed me to immerse myself in the wonderful Nepali culture. Also, throughout the duration of this program I have been able to weekend trips.

I can’t recommend Jennifer enough, she was constantly in contact with me via email and zoom the whole time trying to ensure my experience was exactly how I wanted it to be, was very considerate about what I did and didn’t want and kept me updated along the whole way. She was fabulous at orientation day with calming nerves and ensuring me that She would only be a call away whenever I needed! Jen is amaze!

Jennifer was extremely helpful with the whole process. She was always happy to help with any issues I had and she even reached out to me multiple times to check in on me and make sure I was okay. There were some times that I was really struggling on this trip and she made things so much easier. I wouldn’t have coped without her assistance.

I was a little cautious at first but as my departure approached my team (especially Kate) were amazing. They were able to get me and my friend a job that we had no prior experience in as well as in the exact location I had asked for. It is a bit pricey but they do their best to get what you asked for.

Ellen was so helpful especially as it was booked at the start of Covid so we even changed trips and dates more than once. Nothing was too much trouble and we had an amazing trip to Namibia where we volunteered with the community building a rock wall to protect their water and then out tracking the elephants.

Global Work & Travel response

Hi Briony,

Wow! Your pictures are incredible! What an amazing experience you have had! We are all very jealous! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review of your experience volunteering in Namibia, we love hearing feedback like this especially about our Trip Coordinator Ellen!

I have just returned home after an amazing 3week adventure in Ecuador on the Galápagos Island of San Cristobal! All of the people that I stayed with and worked with were so wonderful and welcoming! It was one of the best experiences of my life! Thank you to everyone here who helped prepare me for this amazing experience! Thank you to Ellyse for making sure every detail was perfect! And special thank you to the amazing host family who made me feel so welcome and at home!

This company has helped me move and find work in Dublin Ireland. I am very happy that I decided to go with them. Their staff are very nice, and very helpful. Stacey was great at helping me figure out my flights, and getting my Visa in order. She was very helpful and patient with me as I figured everything out. Jennifer helped me find a great job right in the city center. She is very nice and great at answering all my questions. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend! It is nice to know that I have people to help me while abroad. Thank you!

I had booked and paid in full for a volunteer trip to Thailand. I had confirmed the time I would like to go three times during the 12 months coming up to my trip. But they never reserved my spot or confirmed my trip. Even though I have a welcome email that clearly states, quote: "in order for us to lock-in your Project Intake date with our Destination Office, so they can allocate accommodation and transfers for you, and be able to prepare for your stay in general, we will require the Trip Balance settled". I had done this. I paid the trip balance in full. Their gWorld app and my trip coordinator all said I was going in November. I even have a text message to my coordinator again confirming I wanted to be booked in for the November intake. But then I called them, 4 months before my trip just to confirm all the details and check everything was all okay.

Only to be told on a call that lasted no longer than 4 minutes, that I was no longer able to go on the trip I had had booked, scheduled and paid for, for well over a year. They said I could do another trip and that the trip was never confirmed. So paying in full does not confirm my trip, as indicated by their time and save me a spot. And confirming via text message does not confirm my trip. Very frustrating. The fact I could no longer go on the trip was never communicated with me until I called them. No emails, no phone calls. Nothing. Just a holiday I can no longer go on because they overbooked the intake.

Global Work & Travel response

Hi Jasmine,

We're so sorry to hear that you feel this way about your recent experience with us. We pride ourselves on providing a world-leading service for all of our travellers, so we truly get upset when we hear feedback like this.

We have looked into your trip and it looks like we were waiting on documents from yourself to get you booked in with our in country partner. We understand your Trip Coordinator is waiting to hear back from our in country partner & we have asked your Trip Coordinator to reach out to you to discuss this further.

Once again, we are saddened to receive this feedback and we do hope your opinion changes of us as we know you will have an incredible volunteer trip in Thailand.

I have had a great experience with Global Work and Travel over the past six or so months. As it is my first experience traveling overseas by myself, having my travel coordinator help me along the way made planning easy and helped me to feel supported throughout. Would definitely recommend global work and travel to a friend.

My trip coordinator, Nichola was absolutely brilliant in letting me know everything I needed before I left for my summer camp. She was very helpful in reminding me of deadlines. The only issue I had was with my travel concierge- I was given a flight time so I booked travel arrangements around that but they gave me the flight proposal 4 days after I was meant to get it so it was fully booked. So they gave me a different flight but I still lost money on trains/airport travel.

Global Work & Travel response

Hi Harry,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a 4 star review of your experience! Great to hear how amazing Nichola was with your trip! We will pass this feedback on to her! We appreciate your feedback about your Travel Concierge & we will pass this on to our travel team as well.

Nichola and Kieran were very helpful with booking and organising my trip, they took care of everything for me and made sure my travel and accommodation was sorted. It was very easy to contact them and they contacting me frequently to make sure everything was okay and answer any questions I had. When I got to South Africa I had the best time and my experience with Global Work and Travel and the experience I had in South Africa was amazing.

Piper has been my travel concierge and has helped me greatly through the process of getting me over to the UK! Any questions I had were answered + more. I would highly recommend GWT to any of my friends / family if they were first time travelers like myself. Only somewhat negative comment I have would be the change of departure dates because my flights were booked pretty late, but I don't know if that's from the company's end or COVID affecting the amount of flights, so I'm very understanding. I can't thank GWT enough for everything!
