We are repeat clients of GET. They are experienced, prompt and efficient at what they do. Questions are answered in a timely fashion. Customer service is excellent.
Vacation
We have done numerous Insight and Trafalgar tours along with others. This was not our favorite. Three different tours were combined, so there were always people coming and going. The optional experiences sometimes required securing your own transportation, not what I’m used to. There was only one optional choice on Kauai and not enough time to book our own which we did on Oahu. Perhaps this was due to Labor Day weekend, but if that was the case, we should have been forewarned. Also, the hotel on Kauai did not have ocean access. We were told we could bike to a snorkeling beach—not going to happen at our age! There was also a LOT of downtime, some due to air travel, some due to scheduling around hotel check-in times, etc. The tour director was organized and efficient, but needs to grow into the role. At times, he read from a script. We were also not provided needed information for Pearl Harbor, such as what our tickets included and how to make the best use of our allotted time. Other simple things such as the hotel amenities were also omitted. It also appeared that he did not welcome questions. Time management was unequal. The group would have liked to spend more time at the pineapple plantation and less time at the Pacific Cultural Center for those not choosing that as an optional experience. Rushed at one location, a waste of time at another. This trip, the most expensive and the longest option, needs work.

When I went on last trip, I asked for handicap room. The hotel knew nothing about it. When we got to Hawaii airport there was no transportation set up to get to the hotel . No one knew nothing about it. A few more things were not as I requested thru GET. Not ever planning on using GET again.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We apologize for any information that may have been missed in the booking process. We do not show that a request for an ADA room was ever listed in your reservation. The hotel transportation is included as a group transfer and the instructions to meet the group were listed in your travel documents. Again we are sorry for any parts of this information that were unclear or not explained to you. We do hope that despite the rocky start, you did enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian Islands

It was a fairly priced trip. My only suggestion would be to use another resort on Kona. I did not like the Sheraton at all except for the pool. The food was mediocre and the hallway smelled moldy. I have a severe allergy to mold so I was concerned that I might get ill. It did affect me a little but I did not get really sick. Beautiful location though. The other hotels were quite nice and more upscale, I think.

Sight Seeing 1) Farm to Table tour and lunch was a HIDDEN GEM! a) Presentation and quality of the food was superior b) Tour of the facility was excellent 2) Attention needed for touring on Maui and Kauai Dining 1) Welcome reception a) No wow factor – just another “Happy Hour” no wow factor b) No desserts – brownies – when I asked a staff member he said “popular item, no more” - Oh WELL!!!! 2) Tom did try to compensate the roach incident by buying lunch Accommodations 1) Outrigger and Hyatt were excellent choices 2) Sheraton was just average – no wow factor 3) Kauai Beach Resort – very POOR a) found two roaches in bathroom one in tub and one on bath matt b) moved to another room – opened the cabinet to refrigerator and one jumped on door that was the last night of our stay and left a WONDERFUL IMPRESSION!!!!!! “Roach Motel” 4) Best breakfast was at Outrigger 5) Worst breakfast was at the Sheraton Coach / Driver 1) Rosario on Kauai a) excessive chatter about personal information on wife, divorce, settlement of divorce 2) Chatter and commentary between Tom and Rosario was that of a POOR QUALITY morning Talk radio show!!!!!!!!!! But no dial to turn it off!!! 3) Bus windows needed attention – they should be SPOTLESS!!! a) asked a bus driver about the window quality answer was “do they need clean”? – now really – we are taking pictures on this tour Optional Experiences 1) Maui needs more tour options 2) Kauai is in desperate need of more optional tours

We actually traveled with Trafalgar, though we booked through GET. We had a great tour director in Michael. The stays on each of the 4 islands were very nice. Great accommodations and nice tours of the islands. We loved being able to do several inter-island flights with little-to-no hassles. The tour company handled our bags for us whenever we were departing or arriving.
