Dave Fontella was really easy to work with. He took the time to find the best flight option for us and the most convenient to our home. He also followed up and let us know the things we would need to prepare for our trip. It was really helpful to know. Looking forward to booking another trip for sometime in the future! This was my first trip to Europe and my dream trip to Spain. Really happy with this experience!
Response from Grand European Travel:
It's wonderful to see how much you enjoyed your first trip to Europe and we thank you for trusting us to help plan it for you. We hope to help you again in the near future.

This trip was my first trip to Europe and Spain has been a dream of mine to visit. This was also the first time I took an organized tour. I think this trip was the right length for me as I haven't had a bus experience like this before. Our Travel Director, Atakan Acar, was really a great man. He really has a passion for what he does and took personal interest in all of the guests. I really want to take another tour with him. I was so amazed by all the intricate details in the architecture in Spain and the local specialists provided great insights into each of the cities we visited. Really glad I had my first experience in Spain like this.

We had a Great time because we had time to spend on our own. The food provided by the GET group has nothing to do with the Spanish culture .Optional"s were too expensive. Travel Director was all about the recurring travelers leaving us aside. He organized the group like we were a Kinder garden group and kept asking for His tip and the coach driver's tip. Never told us were to find tap water but sold us the ones they had at the coach. Asking for a restroom was a Taboo...We would not recommend or go on another GET tour if the Travel Directors are likewise.

We're sorry to hear about your experience and will be sure to share your comments with Trafalgar who operates this tour. We do hope that despite the minor issues you mentioned that there were some highlights along the way and happy memories made.

We had concerns about our 2 hr layover in Madrid. We informed our travel specialist prior to departure that was not enough time to go through customs and catch our flight to Bilbao. As expected we almost missed our flight we had 5 mins prior to the door of the aircraft being closed. We were not happy running through the terminal to catch out flight.
Vacation
We enjoyed the wonderful experience, the culture, sites, food , etc. The only negative aspect was there never seem enough time to shop in certain areas . Most times we had 1.5 hrs to eat and shop. Certain areas had great shopping possibilities but we were rushed through the city. Also there were additional expenses for optional tours. The flamenco should have been included in the tour price as well as the Montserrat trip

The staff at Grand European Travel were always very helpful and ready to answer any questions that I had. I got several emails regarding my upcoming trip and they always contained good tips and information as well. They were also great when I wanted to change my flight plans and took the time to look at the options available and when the change saved me money(!!!!), they refunded the amount to my account right away. This was the second time that I had booked a trip with them, and I will continue to do so for my future travel needs.

This was a great tour. I choose it due to the cities that it went to, and it hit all the things that I wanted to do in Spain. The hotels were very nice, and as a single traveler I was really glad to have spacious rooms with the single room supplement. We had great weather most days, but be aware that in September it can storm when you get near the coast.
