#1 is the most natural to me. #3 is possible. #2 is not grammatically incorrect, but it's not very natural in most circumstances. It has a kind of convoluted feel to it, as if the writer is deliberately trying to achieve a stylistic effect.

A "journey" is not a very common thing to offer someone. It's possible that "journey" is not exactly the word you want.

Hello,

1 and 3 are correct.2 is not correct in terms of grammar.

if you stress journey you choose 1

if you stress the person being offered you choose 3
I would like to offer a journey to you.

I don't think #2 is grammatically incorrect. According tot he dictionary offer can be both transitive and intransitive.

AnonymousAccording to the dictionary offer can be both transitive and intransitive.

That may be, but it's irrelevant for the topic in question. With 'offer' and other similar verbs, only two alternations are available in the ditransitive reading, as follows:

offer something to someone
offer someone something

Not
offer to someone something

I suggest trip instead of journey.

1. I would like to offer you a journey.
