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.
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!
