Most wonderful trip, needed more time in spots due to long Bus trips between travel destinations. Lovely and well worth the experiance..... we skipped a few Optional events and found some Hidden treasures that were better than the itinerary, Seriously, plan ahead & you'll thank yourself later...as well as save some Euros in the longrun. Kudos to OUR WONDERFUL HOST Cassie Jones!!! We couldn't have done it without HER!!

Everything was so well organized from start to finish. Our flight was booked in such a way that it was OUR booking and we could make changes to it ourselves, not through the agent. We got lots of information regarding our destinations and what we needed to know about travel to Europe in several e-mails and links. We actually traveled with Trafalgar and our driver and tour guide were amazing. Very impressed how Kassie (tour guide) handled everything, double checking reservations, tours, schedules, dealing with requests. She even gave us little souvenirs and made a video that we could download and keep. I've shown it to several friends. The optional tours were top notch and very reasonably priced for what you got - especially when a meal was included. Bus was clean and comfortable and driver very good. I felt going by bus allowed us to see a lot more of the countries we visited. Super trip!

Great tour, reasonably priced.

We booked our tour with GET because we had been to Italy with GET and it was excellent. This time we never saw anyone from GET. After 4 days on our own in London, we finally met with Trafalger. Two of their reps were lousy, but Howell was good and our tour guide, Stepane, was terrific. Our biggest complaint is that Daniel Pelletier from GET told us things that never happened, like a welcome dinner and a farewell dinner. Once we met the rest of the group in Amsterdam, everything turned out great. Trafalger and Stepane were super and we really enjoyed the rest of the trip, but we feel that GET did nothing for us except book the trip with Trafalger, which we could have done with them directly. We will not book with GET again. Quite a disappointment after our wonderful trip to Italy.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We do apologize for the misunderstanding and miscommunication regarding your trip. The London portion is indeed hosted with the Travel Director joining the group on the last day of the London stay.  We hope that you were able to enjoy the rest of the trip and came home with some happy memories.

When we booked the trip with GET, we were never told that it was a Trafalger Trip. We should have been told that this was NOT a GET trip. Trafalger turned out OK, once we met the group, but we were looking forward to GET's personal service that we expected from them.
