Easy booking online. Alicia was very helpful with all our questions.
Vacation
Canadian trip was fun and pace was good. Saw something each day and had free time to do things on our own as well. Like the buffet breakfasts over the order from menu breakfasts. Would have preferred more sit down lunches and dinners as a group. Then we wouldn’t have to find own places to eat.

Working with Josh has always been a delight. He's knowledgeable, clear in his explanations, and quick to communicate with us.

Our tour director Roger Keyes is outstanding. His knowledge, great sense of humor, patience, thoroughness with every detail, generosity, and careful supervision ... all of this couldn't have been better. We'll travel with him again, if given the chance!

They were very informative and helpful.

The vacation was relaxing. The Tour Director was excellent. I expected more sights to see but unfortunately, did not. In conclusion, it was not a very interesting tour. I have to comment on the food, all the restaurants were exceptional and served really delicious food. and the hotels were top notch.
Response from Grand European Travel:
That is fantastic to hear! Thank you for sharing your feedback

The contract with Trafalgar proved to be an excellent land tour! The guide, Jen Hirtle, was excellent! Moving from land into the cruise was well organized! We were well informed of everything as we moved along! We were quite pleased with the entire trip!
Vacation
Received discount for AARP, repeat traveler and early payment which always helps retirees on fixed incomes! The trip was worth the cost!

Would prefer seeing and doing more than riding in the bus. Like more time in places so that you can it.
Response from Grand European Travel:
This trip does cover a lot of ground and there is quite a bit of driving in between cities. We are sorry it wasn't to your liking, but hope there were some highlights for you along the way.

Have taken many tours with Grand European, but this didn't have many points of interest although Canada is extremely clean I felt like I was in the US

Yes, I would book with them again. The reason I did not give it a 5 is because we were always on the wrong side of the hotel. Our view consisted of a hotel under construction, a view of a neighborhood. We went to see the Falls from our hotel, and that did not happen.
Vacation
The reservation process was perfect. Kaitoin Fitzpatrick. (ext. 220) was great and very very helpful. The reservation process was painless. Thanks.
