    This morning meet your Travel Director and fellow travelling companions to board your coach and set off from London. Your journey to the continent begins today. Travelling south through the pretty Kent countryside to Dover. Board your ferry to Calais and leave the chalky White Cliffs behind. Arriving in Paris, you'll have time to explore the 'City of Lights' on your own. The French capital glows bright both day and night, but consider an Optional Experience on the Seine at this evening to make your introduction even more special.

Your sightseeing tour conducted by your Travel Director will take you past the Champs Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the 'Iron Lady' herself, the Eiffel Tower. Relish the afternoon to do as you please. That could mean channeling your inner Parisian and sitting in a leafy park with a baguette and some cheese and wine, or consider a visit to the Louvre where you can view the wry smile of the Mona Lisa. Tonight, colourful Can-Can girls will entice you with their remarkable outfits should you choose to join an Optional Experience cabaret show.

Visit the poignant Lion Monument, hewn from rock to honour the brave Swiss Guards who died defending King Louis XVI during the French Revolution.

Stand in the centre of the square and capture the historic panorama which Napoleon once called 'the drawing room of Europe'. The exquisite art of glassblowing for which Venice is justifiably famous follows next. You'll see master craftsmen engaged in the centuries-old craft that their forefathers passed down from generation to generation. Consider an opportunity to visit the colourful fisherman's island of Burano for an optional meal with drinks or spend the afternoon exploring Venice on your own before heading to Florence.

The dome of St. Peter's Basilica looms over the expansive St. Peter's Square - the impressive backdrop for time spent learning about the world's smallest country. See Michelangelo's mournful Pietà up close and consider an Optional Experience that will reveal the artistry and heritage of the famous Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums.

Our travel specialist booked our flights for us, in addition to our trip. For us being new to traveling internationally, we didn't know what questions to ask. We wish we would have known to reserve tickets/times at various places like The London Eye, The Louvre, St. Mark's Basillica, etc. Those are some things we would have liked to do while there, but were unable to get into any of them.
Vacation
We had a wonderful time exploring Europe. However, we didn't know about reservations for places like Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, etc, so we missed out on all of those experiences. The optional excursion to Burano was our favorite experience of the entire trip! Second favorite was going up the mountain in Lucerne!

My Sister Gladys and I loved and enjoyed everything from start to finish. For my first experience and trip to Europe, I was very satisfied and impressed with how GET made it so much easier to plan, reserve and receive all documents needed before departing on the trip. Every person I spoke to was very helpful, thoughtful & knowledgeable even whenever a question came up during the planning phase. Our travel director, Brent Cooper and motorcoach driver Pio were the best. Very hospitable, attentive to everyone and kept us all safe & sound while traveling in Europe by motorcoach. Overall, it was a great, adventurous and wonderful trip and YES, God-willing, we plan to book sometime in the near future.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you so much for your kind words and the wonderful pictures! We couldn't be happier to see that you had an amazing time!
