Service rating : The trip was well organized and planned. There were some long days on the bus but that can't be helped given the extent of the locations. There were a few issues but mostly everything was excellent from the views of the national parks and cities to the tour director and driver. And the group was a very cordial bunch of people as well.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We're very happy to hear you had a wonderful time visiting our beautiful national parks. Thank you for sharing your travel experience.

Response from Grand European Travel:
We are very sorry to hear about this. The Guided Vacations we sell can be booked by many different outlets and some of those do offer different amenities, but all of the information and programs are identical. We will certainly look in to your request and bring it up with our partners at Destination America. Thank you.

Our tour guide Jack was very knowledgeable about the areas we traveled through as well as the National Parks and other places we stopped. The garden tour and dinner in Salt Lake City was not worth the extra money but other than that I was pleased with the entire trip.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We're so glad you had a wonderful time on your National Parks vacation and that you chose GET to handle all the arrangements to keep your trip hassle-free. Thank you for sharing your experience, we'll be sure to let the team know you had a great time. Happy Travels!

Service rating : Booking was easy and they answered all my questions with patience
Vacation : The tour covers a lot of ground and there is a breathtaking scenery at every stop. Our tour director Tom Williams was absolutely fantastic. Our driver Benson was professional, courteous and a great driver. Hotels were great with the exception of Goulding's Lodge. It was a very small room and the luggage barely fit into the room. Yellowstone also has no tv and only pay internet but that would not have been a big deal if we had known ahead of time. There were a couple of long days on the bus but Tom made it entertaining and there was no other way to see all the fantastic parks without those long days.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your review. You are quite right, this tour covers a lot of territory! We are glad you enjoyed your vacation and it looks like you saw some fantastic wildlife!
