The things we saw and experienced were wonderful. Victorio, our travel director was great and worked hard to make sure we had a good time. It was just too much time spent on the bus and packing and unpacking.

Our vacation was fantastic! It truely was a whirl however so it is not for someone who wants to relax. We saw so much for the short time we stayed in each country. Our travel guide, Brendon gave us so much information and history. We were able to absorb the different cultures, and see so many more things that we would have missed had we not booked with Grand European Travel. Loved it and would highly recommend! Thank you!

Amanda Trafalgar was fantastic, her energy, friendliness, knowledge gave a trip a boost. You can tell that she was born to this.. She gave a presentation before we will go to another country about the language. She would give us the country phrases. Also she informed us regarding the W/S. How much it would cost and guide us to W/S. The trip information was great. I had opportunity to meet other people from different countries and backgrounds. My hat off to Amanda, who made the trip very interesting, lasting memories, enjoyable but it was also, educated me regarding the old world.Europe.
