Our travel Director, Donald, was excellent! He added so much value to our experience (keeping everyone on track, providing both historical and delightful trivia of the area, inhabitants and geography). The side trips and. dinners were fun and insightful.

Actual 4* hotels and no dives, fulfill bed size requests, and be honest about bad food
Vacation
Cheap hotels included and repetitive terrible food. 4000 miles in 14 days on a coach packed with 50 guests is brutal
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry to hear about your disappointment. This tour does cover a lot of ground and the only way to see it all is by motor coach. Many of the destinations and accommodations are rustic and in rural parts of the states visited. We apologize if this was not made clear to you at the time you booked.

Just a fabulous trip. Itinerary perfect and trip the best because of Donard O’Neil. He was a thousand per cent perfect. Full of valuable information throughout the trip. He is a wealth of knowledge. I am currently reading one of the books he recommended. Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. Treat him well Trafalgar. It is because of Donard and Julio that the trip was absolutely amazing! Julio our driver kept us safe for over the 3900 miles he drove. I cannot be more thankful that Julio was our driver. Treat Julio very well too please. We are so fortunate to have such grand memories.

Booking the tour was simple and we were helped by Rob Rainwater throughout our pretour phase. This was our first bus tour and we were somewhat apprehensive, but we found the tour to be comfortable and exciting. Our tour guide was highly informative and helpful. The meals supplied and the hotels were all better than we expected. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. By the way, we met many nice people on this tour that we expect to have future activities with.

Our travel director was the most informed guide we have ever had. Besides that,he was efficient,very friendly and had a great personality.He handled any problem that he came across i.e. Not being able to get into our hotel because the Vice President was staying there and we all had to be screened by the secret service. He was totally unflappable. And our bus driver was the best, especially considering the mountain roads that we were. They were a perfect duo!
