Initial contact with Daniel Pelletier was great. Later found out the price didn't include the interior flights.Also we didn't know we had booked two sepaarte tours. We loved our group of 26 in Brazil and Argentina, but Trafalgar added us to another group in Peru which made us 40+, not as easy to wrangle and not as cohesive. Both travel directors were exceptional, Rodrigo and Rudy. The sights were well planned. Many of the optional tours were canceled, which was disappointing. Judging from former GET tours, we appreciated the better quality food of included meals, drinks included, and upscale hotels.There was a lot of hype about the Novotel Hotels, which were just OK.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your feedback. South America Revealed is indeed one trip made up of two separate smaller tours. We apologize that this was not made clear to you when you made your reservation and thank you fro bringing this to our attention.

Vacation
The addition of the cost of the interior flights from our first impression of the the "total price" of the tour was unsettling. We would have booked it anyway, but it it was something of a bait and switch tactic that left us questioning ethics. We'll book again with GET, but we'll be wary of the bottom line at the introductory conversation.
