Everything was fine except I had to call to make a reservation to get picked up in Jackson, Wy. Thought since they had my flight info they could have taken care of that.

It was very easy to book with our Travel Specialist at Grand European Travel!! The Travel Specialist answered all of my questions. The updating emails kept us well informed and ready for our tour!!!
Vacation
This was a fabulous tour!! There were challenges with the snow and ice in Yellowstone that kept us from entering, but our Tour Director did a fabulous job of switching things around so that we got to experience even more of the wonders of the area! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The Pow Wow was mind blowing!!

Booking the reservation went smoothly. There were no hiccups or suprises.

The visit to Yellowstone had to be cancelled because of foul weather. The roads into the Park were snow covered and icy for two + days. It was a disappointment for many on the Tour. The Tour was made by many with the anticipation of seeing Yellowstone. Other than the Yellowstone disappointment, the other stops, sights, and history was excellent. Two improvements ………… Name tags for everyone. Trafalgar said, because their tags were plastic, there were no name tags. To remember everyone's name and location was difficult without name tags. Improved communication …………..Trafalgar to cut down on paper and copy costs tried to communicate with all announcements and updates through word of mouth. With everyone on the Tour, having cell phones, it would make sense to try Emails and Texts for important announcements so they are not missed or misunderstood.

Kaitlin Fitzpatrick was very helpful in booking our National Parks Wonders tour, and the trip was absolutely outstanding. Even the weather was great! The itinerary was excellent, as were the hotels and meals throughout the trip. Our tour guide, Kristin Jenn, was very extremely knowledgeable about the sites visited, and her fun personality and excellent organizational skills made everything run like clockwork. Hal, our coach driver, was very pleasant and friendly too, and a very capable driver. We absolutely loved this trip.
Vacation
We saw so many beautiful sites, and so many different types of animals, so it made this trip really special. We were especially impressed with Yellowstone, and the Buffalo Bill Cody museum, and of course Mount Rushmore and The Crazy Horse monument were breathtaking. It was just a fabulous trip, which I highly recommend every time I get the chance.

They were very professional and attentive - yes I would recommend them to others. There was a situation where they failed to respond in a timely manor due to personnel being unavailable without sufficient procedures to compensate or the rating would have been a 5.
Vacation
Very organized and planned out. Guide communication was detailed and precise. Teamwork between driver and guide was superb in spite of the fact it was the first time they worked together. They both went the extra mile.
