Grand European Travel works hard to provide a great experience. Schedules were carefully planned, great consideration was given to accommodations, meals, restroom stops, cultural experiences and sightseeing. Our travel director was excellent and the local specialists were knowledgeable and pleasant. This was our first experience with Grand European and we learned a lot as a result.

We had a great experience and I will certainly recommend to all. Everything was handled perfectly. Randy Fay was our travel agent. He took care of everything for us from explaining options to making all reservations. We did not have to worry and stress over flights, connections, reservations, etc. He was available and answered all questions and concerns promptly. The website had all the information we needed for traveling abroad: what to pack, how to pack, money, customs, etc. It was all very helpful and all in one place. This was our once in a lifetime trip to celebrate our 50th year anniversary and our heritage. It was everything we hoped for and more. Our guide, Andy Major was wonderful. He explained everything and he kept us all organized, together, and SAFE. The city guides were another bonus. They gave us so much of the history of that particular area, things that can not always be learned from books.

I was most impressed with online responses to any questions I had and there were some. Everyone I spoke to was great! The tour was well planned to keep us busy yet let us have free time. Our guide was really informative, polite and very patient. The diversity of travelers allowed me to find out about other cultures.

This was the first time that I took a guided tour and they were very helpful in helping me choose the best package for me. Whenever I had questions they were available to answer, and they called with updated info when there were some changes with the hotel accommodations. Will definitely use their services again.
This was the best tour/vacation/experience that I have ever had. This was the first time that I took a guided tour, and I don't think I could have had a better experience. The tour guide and driver, Simone and Pat, were awesome. Simone was very knowledgeable about the country and history, and if she didn't know something she would look it up and make sure she got the question answered. I went in August, specifically to see the Tattoo and I was not disappointed, it was wonderful! I chose this itinerary because I wanted to get a taste of what Scotland has to offer, and I did. The scenery, the people, the history, the castles, just amazing. I looked at this trip as an adventure, up to and including the food and hotels, and had the best time imaginable.
