Have more consistency in terms of quality of accommodations; offer more choices at hotel dinners than two; have people stay in nicer hotels for more than one night and do the rest of the tour around those accommodations; spend less time around lunch for shopping and see more things
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your suggestions and feedback. We will be sure to share them with our partners at Destination America for immediate review and follow up.
