Dave Frontella always takes excellent care of us. I feel extremely confident when he handles our arrangements. If I contact him and leave a message, I always receive a super quick response.

I really wanted to rate this 4 1/2. Alaska is a magnificient place-so gorgeous. The people are very friendly-such a joy. However, it is different from other tours in that some areas are very remote, not as many places to eat, (several times going to grocery stores to buy lunch) out houses instead of bathrooms in several areas. In addition, it was obvious that Trafalgar is cutting corners in small ways, but in several places. (maybe partly due to covid)...But all in all, a wonderful trip! The Wellness Director was super.

Best travel director we have ever had. Have been on 3 other trips with directors and by far the best. Also the wellness person - Linda and the bus driver were excellent. We prefer a more pampering vacation. This was an adventure not a vacation. Will ask more questions before signing up for my next trip. My husband said it all - "I kept thinking we were going to see the newer shinier side of Alaska but all we saw was the old rusty side. I figured out that that is just Alaska." So we wanted to see Alaska and we saw it with great guidance. We'll just pick a more pampered vacation next time. Booking with Alyssa was great too. Unfortunately I didn't get my Italy vacation due to Covid. And also the trip insurance not covering it was cheesy. I was appalled we could not get our money back with insurance. That was not her fault. Ended up moving the money to the Alaska trip. May not live long enough to get to Italy.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and concerns. We all hoped that Covid would have been in our rear view mirror by now. We hope that there were some pleasant memories made in Alaska and that you haven't quite given up hope on Italy just yet.

Everything was handled very professionally and courteously from start to finish. Reservations, connections between airports-hotels-shuttling services went very smoothly. All of the sites visited and tours provided exceeded exception. We'll be sure to make use of your services again in the not-too-distant future.

All of the sites visited were educational, enriching, and, simply stated, a lot of fun to explore. Our trip to Alaska (our first) exceeded our expectations 100%.

I had a number of very poor experiences with GET while booking this trip. I made 2 or 3 calls to ask questions and got bad information or no help at all. I will not book thru GET again.

Vacation
This tour fully encompassed all aspects of comfortable travel (coach & train + cruise option) that fit my expectations to see/explore the diversity of Alaska's environment, locations, economic contributions and terrain. Experiences, descriptions, and stories provided by local tour guide, Debbie, allowed me to be fully immersed in the history, culture and day-to-day life of persons living and working in Alaska. Bus driver, Maurice, stressed safety & was gracious in providing an inviting and safe riding experience. The dome train experience was phenomenal, enhanced by stories & descriptions of area by the local train guide & our local tour guide, as well as the ideal weather day that was clear & sunny and allowed us to see the summit of Denali at every turn. Upon completing this tour I had a greater appreciation of the beauty, diversity and unpredictability of Alaska's environment; the resiliency and adaptations necessary to live in our 49th state; and the influence of historical and cultural beliefs and values on day-to-day life. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring individual towns with allotted time on my own, and tour options, with thorough descriptions by tour guide so I could make an informed decision.

Well done tour of Alaska. We like tours that are educational and this one was. It was full of adventure and excitement. There were wonderful options to customize our trip and we took advantage of them. Our tour guide and driver were excellent and had intimate knowledge of Alaska and call Alaska their home. We feel privileged to come away with an understanding of Alaska, its people, its history, and its truly awesome natural beauty.
