Service
Je suis satisfaite du service de GET. Le tour était excellent et j'ai beaucoup aimé et mon aventure et mes découvertes . Le guide et le conducteur étaient plus qu'excellent et très professionnels .Dès la 2e journée , on s'est rendu compte que les gens qui avaient fait affaire avec Trafalgar avaient tous reçu l'iténéraire avec ses corrections et les options en surplus . Donc , les autres voyageurs ont dû nous prêter leurs copies afin de nous permettre de faire nos choix des options . Ceci devrait être remis à chaque client.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Nous sommes si heureux d'apprendre que vous avez passé un merveilleux moment sur vos vacances à l'Ouest! Merci beaucoup de partager votre expérience et d'avoir choisi GET pour vous aider à planifier votre voyage.
