Generally well-organized and efficient. One day was too long (Krakow to Warsaw, with dinner before hotel). Too long a day. Change the dinner. Need the guides to wait until all passengers have gotten off the bus before they start walking and talking. It's slower getting off the back, and those people are left to catch up the entire time.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your suggestions.  We will be sure to pass them on to the planning team at Insight Vacations.
