B.

we need relative claue to describe journals. This should begin with that or which

A and C out.

generally which is preceded by comma. D out

Between B and E, I would pick B as the new reports were published while they were traveling and keeping journals (continuous tense).

E will be true if news reports publishes once they completed their journey.

Choice E for me as well. There is no need to maintain parallelism here by using 'forming' as in choice B. In fact, the opinions were formed after all the journeying, and not while the act of travelling was in progress. As such, the parallelism would be one of a 'false parallelism'.

I'll take E.

I'll pick E,

A is out because "forming" is awkward

B is out because "visited" is passive while they visited is better

C is out because "they have" cannot be used for past time

D is out because "which had formed" should be changed to "that formed": present and "that" is better than "which" in this case

E for me too.

We need the relative that, Between B and E, I choose E because the tenses are more consistent

I'd go for E.

A, B- to use forming sounds awkward.
C- uses the wrong verb tense
D- wrong verb tense
