It's my second trip with you. Both times, the guides, the content and organizing of the trip was marvelous. However, both times, I have complaints about the hotel rooms you give singles, who pay a hefty supplement to get the same quality as the doubles. Both times, I was given rooms with an open shower that ran all over the room, no tub (which I had requested), and they forgot to clean my room for 2 days in Moscow, after Silvija, your guide, gave me her room because it had a tub (I need to soak after all the walking...aches). That is the only mistrust I have with your bookings. The rest is great.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for taking the time to write. Unfortunately, traveling as a single does not guarantee the same size room as a couple traveling together would receive. It is an industry standard that single travelers must endure. We do apologize for the quality of the room in Russia and will be sure to share your experience with the Quality Control team at Trafalgar.

A lot of sites were not included & had to be purchased as an option for an additional fee.

The airplane reservations etc were very well done. I especially appreciate that the person making the reservations realized that I was going to arrive in St. Petersburg a little too late for the Trafalgar shuttles and had arranged a special driver waiting at the airport for me!

The tour was well worth it. For one thing, the weather in Russia was much better than steaming Orlando.

Too many optional excursions "pushed" on us. No help with luggage. Our tour director was very friendly but not well organized. The local guides were good and knowledgeable.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry that you felt there were too many optional experiences on this trip. They are designed to allow a balance of free time and added value to the trip, but we will share your feedback with our Operations Team. Thank you for taking the time to write.

Too many added expenses (optionals) and very few meals included.

The service was good but the group was too big Although we got along well. The optional excursions made the day very long and very very strenuous. However, in order to see and experience Russia you had to take them because in my opinion the prepaid tour was not plan well. Everything that I wanted to see I had to pay extra and that made no time for personal time or relaxation . Why not make the tour 10 days instead of 8?
Response from Grand European Travel:
We feel badly that you were disappointed in this trip. There were several highlights included in the price and the Optional Experiences are designed to allow enhanced sightseeing or free time for those who prefer to be on their own. However, we will share your suggestions with our Operations Team and ask them to review this trip.

Your service is good but your stated itinery is not what actually is of interest to customers. This is particulary reflected in the "Petersburg" segment. Most of the Option tours are a must for the tours why don't you include that in the tour and come out with a higher quoted price?
Response from Grand European Travel:
We understand your concern, but the optional experiences cannot always be guaranteed to operate or be available so we cannot include them in the regular itinerary.  Thank you for your suggestions.
