The hotels based on the fact that Globus claimed were not centralized. Single rooms were very small with no view and mine mostly was in the smoking area despite the fact that I don't smoke! Most of the included meals were served in the hotel and not a good choice or quality. Excursions were expensive and not satisfactory and did not match the description. I would like to get a refund on one of the excursions too (I don't know if I should follow up with Affordable tours or Globus). Most of the sightseeing included in the itinerary were from churches or their factory commission based places. We did not given enough time to shop in the areas we liked but so much time in the Globus commission based factories. We had to spent time in the cities (Lyon) in the hotel far away from the downtown with no sightseeing and no security.

This is a great tour. Tour Director and has been doing this for many years and it showed. Our second Globus tour and we will use Globus again if we decide to take another tour. Affordable tours was also great to work with. Only issues were some of the rooms were small and needed updating and the hotel in Venice was not on the island as it was on our tour of Italy and Sicily. This took away from the experience. Too much back and forth and cut our time there. Also the time in London was inadequate. Thankfully we arrive 3 days early.

Hotels would have been better if located to be able to walk to restaurants and stores. Dinners sponsored by Globus should be oriented to the country i.e., Italian food, Paris-French food. The menu should allow choices for the entree, as not everyone eats veal or meat.

Our vacation The Traditional Grand European was everything we expected. Our tour director was exceptional, professional, knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and aware of the needs of her clients. She went above and beyond by helping some vacationers get help at pharmacies in Europe, acting as interpreter when needed. Overall, the accommodations were good; hotels in Venice and Montecatini were small and dark, although location was good. Meals at Venice hotel were not up to standards either - tasteless pasta, overcooked veggies, broken toaster etc. Also, although most optional tours were good value, the Roman Highlights tour in Rome didn\'t seem particularly valuable - too much free time between sites - possibly should have been combined with morning tour to Colosseum and Forum. Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon are all places tourists wish to see, but three hours dedicated to just these sites made it a very long tiresome day. Overall, the Traditional Grand European is a great tour!
