Overall, our trip was wonderful, but we were disappointed with the quality of some of the hotels. We paid for a premium trip with 4 and 5 star hotels, but some of the hotels were dirty and rooms so small you could hardly move around. Our hotel room in Wales was dirty and very small, as was the hotel in Inverness. Also, we thought more meals should have been included. Our tour director was excellent, as was our driver. The tour overall was excellent, with the exception of the hotels.

#1 and most important, have a room ready for travelers when they arrive, most travel many many many hours of flight time and having to wait 7 hours for a room is cruel. #2 less bus time,waaay too much time spent on a bus and not enough time spent at sights One day was 9 hours on the bus and ankles were swollen twice their size from sitting so long #3 way too many attractions NOT included in travel price, if we wanted to enjoy the stop we were required to pay extra-

We also were not given the schedule we signed up for, they said the itinerary was changed- we paid for and signed up for 17 days,and got 15
Response from Grand European Travel:
We do apologize for the misunderstanding, but it appears you booked your trip from an expired 2018 brochure. Changes were made to this itinerary since then and when it was brought to our attention, our sales manager did assist you in booking extra nights in London and adjusting your flights before your departure so that you would have the full 17 day experience.

Excellent in many ways. Cancelled flight at end and associated problems were a negative. Tour director was the best. Sights were great. Expert guides on bus pointing out things were a weak point.

I would highly recommend GET to friends and family in fact I already have. The booking experience was very easy and well organized. Whenever we had a question we call the 1 800 number and had our question answered promptly. All the service people had excellent detailed answers and were very friendly and nice. If they didn't have an answer they immediately transferred us to someone else who answered our questions. Great help for novice travelers like us.
Response from Grand European Travel:

Vacation
The trip was very enjoyable, the country side was great, I only had one problem, I signed up for the Liverpool Trip along with 17 other people and we were told that that was not enough. Then we asked David about that he Hesitated and come up with a number of 24, so ok, but he did not ask if ww would then like to join the rest of the group that was taking the boat & train trip.
