Service rating : Your website for entering the necessary information required for completing our trip registration "sucked". I entered information as requested but the site would not save the information. Your representative had to enter the information on their end. If the system won't save the information, why request I enter it?
Response from Grand European Travel:
We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and have let our IT/Marketing department know about the issues with the issues you experienced during online registration. We hope the trip was memorable for you despite the glitches prior to travel.

Vacation : Once a deposit was made, there was no additional communication by the representative. Payment was due by a certain date in order to receive a discount on the trip total. But, we had to remember the date on our own...it was like you wanted us to miss the deadline so we would have to pay the full amount. It was good thing one of us kept track of the date to remind the rest of us.

Service rating : We had a triple room, and we had to call for a cot at each hotel. This should have been pre-arranged that a cot was in the room before we got there. I told the tour director at the first hotel, and he should have called ahead to each hotel to verify and he did NOT. At one of the hotels we didn't receive our luggage before we went to the oh Canada eh optional tour. I told the tour director before we got on the bus. He wasn't worried about it for he assumed it would show up while we were at the show. When we got back to the hotel the luggage was still not there. I went and found the tour director and he then started talking to the front desk about it. He should have called the hotel while we were at the tour to confirm that the baggage's got to our room. The tour director only cared about entertaining us, and not making sure our issues were addressed and taken care of.
Vacation : to much time on the bus without stopping and seeing highlights of Canada.

Service rating : Grand European was only the booking agent. Trafalgar ran the tour, very well I might add. GE performed as well as any booking agent, although originally they couldn't get me a reservation on the cruise portion. I had to book that myself through Holland America. ,
Vacation : The entire tour was handled exceptionally by Kirsten Snowdon and driver Rob. One of the best tour directors we have had. Many unexpected extras.

Service rating : The Trafalgar tour of Eastern Canada was very well organized, the trip was very well organized, we stayed at lovely hotels, and our tour guide Jennifer Hirtle was excellent. The bus driver, Ron, was a terrific driver and a lovely person. We would definitely take another Trafalgar tour.
Vacation : We felt that we got very good value for the money. The tour made it possible for us to be able to relax and enjoy Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Quebec and Montreal without having to plan ahead or drive.

Service rating : Overall the tour was 5 stars. The only reason I rated 4 was due to their not having a policy when someone is ill with a fever and a severe cough which are signs of influenza or infectious URI, they do not have any droplet precautions such as putting on a mask to protect the passengers and requesting the ill person be seen to make sure they are not infectious to the rest of the passengers. The tour buses are very close contact which allows easy spread on infectious diseases. The last tour we had a person with influenza with a fever and cough on the first day( Very ill). They had an opportunity to go to a walk in clinic and chose not to. We were stuck on the bus for seven days with fever and severe cough. By the end of the trip 6 more passengers were ill and for those of use that went on the cruise portion several more were ill, myself included. We counted a total of 11 and that did not count those that had gone home. It would seem many of us lost some valuable and expensive travel days, the time and expense of a Doctor visits and prescriptions, unnecessarily to an illness that could have been prevented. The staff at GET have always been excellent! We have traveled with this company 6 times.
Vacation : Very good accommodations, tour guides, excellent food. There was backtracking on the bus from Quebec City back to Montreal to pick up the cruise ship which was overlapping bus travel. It would seem like we could have picked up the ship at Quebec City since we were already there. Overall this was a very good trip.
