Vacation:
Service rating : I certainly would recommend GET again. Land tours have improved so much since thirty years ago. The coaches are comfortable, hotels very good with lavish breakfasts and helpful English speaking staff; the itinerary is more realistic allowing for leisure time and exploration on own Optional tours are still expensive. In Warsaw the Chopin concert was 45 minutes long, for $60, where there had been a free concert earlier in the day. I especially appreciated the knowledge and helpfulness of our tour guides and also the interesting history the local city guides provided. All in all one of my best tours yet.
Vacation : I'd have wished to move on from Warsaw earlier but only because I had toured Poland 25 years ago - good to see the growth. Estonia seems a little behind the other sister states but still worthwhile.
