    Itinerary

    Day 1 Welcome to Puerto Rico!

    Touch down in gorgeous Puerto Rico! Enjoy a comfortable transfer to your hotel right near San Juan, get settled, then head outside for some sun. Boasting four pristine pools and two-miles of beach access, there's tons of places for you to have fun and relax at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel. You can sip on your favorite cocktail at their swim-up bars, or lounge back with poolside service.

    Decorated to reflect the vibrant nightlife in the 60's in Puerto Rico, the hotel features island culture decor and classic mixology in their bars, as well as live entertainment like DJ parties. Ask the hotel staff about what events are happening during your stay, and don't miss out on these opportunities to experience Puerto Rico's lively culture.

    Day 2 Puerto Rico

    Right on the award-winning Isla Verde Beach, you'll find the extravagant El San Juan Beach Club Restaurant and Bar. After relaxing on the beach and dipping your toes in the ocean, head over to the Beach Club for delicious coastal cuisine surrounded by beautiful beach scenery. You may also wish to get your adrenaline racing with aquatic activities like parasailing and jet skiing, or simply sun bathe by the pool.

    Make sure to check out the hotel's iconic BRAVA nightclub, or visit the famed 15,000-square-foot Foxwoods El San Juan Casino.

    Day 3 Puerto Rico

    No trip to Puerto Rico is complete without strolling through the historically charming streets of Old San Juan, which conveniently is just a few minutes away from the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel. Travel back in time as you walk through the oldest city in the U.S., filled with cobblestone streets and pastel-colored buildings.

    As for what to do in Old San Juan, make sure to check out the 16th century El Morro fortress, or the equally impressive Castillo San Cristóbal fortress. You can also visit the Casa Blanca museum, or appreciate the architecture of Catedral de San Juan.

    Alternatively, pay a visit to the Bacardi Rum Distillery where you can experience a once-in-a-lifetime rum tour and/or create your own bottle! Enjoy another night of delicious dining at your hotel's premier restaurants featuring international and local cuisine, and rest well for your trip home tomorrow.

    Day 4 Depart Puerto Rico

    Your trip to Puerto Rico has come to an end – it's time to pack up your souvenirs, take your transfer to the airport, and board your flight home.

    Everything was really great, but I would suggest letting people know if they take the Ring of Kerry tour, they will need extra money for a couple of stops. About 30 euros should do it. Also, let people know they may want to “book” train seats prior to going on the train, so they don’t have to stand for the ride.

    We had a 9 day escorted tour scheduled and paid for, 3 days before we were to depart, I received an email (no phone call) that the tour was overbooked and we were no longer on it. There were no details about the new itinerary and after numerous frustrating phone calls with your customer service rep, I still had no idea where we were supposed to be going and what tour we were on. The last minute change was so stressful, going to another country with no certainty of what was planned and not receiving the official travel voucher until we arrived in Ireland was not ideal. Additionally, your agency put us on a 7 day escorted tour even though we had already paid in full for a 9 day. We expect to be partially refunded for the two days of an escorted tour from Rabbi’s that we did not receive but paid for. You can look at how many times I called in to try and get some answers. I would not recommend your company to others since I have not received an apology or more importantly compensation for this overbooking and change to our trip.

    Our multi-city Europe trip had some pros and cons, the tours were fine, the hotels were ok, 1 out of 3 hotels had a pool. All the hotels were very clean and the staff was courteous and attentive. We experienced several flight delays due to weather conditions. We actually missed a whole day in Spain due to our flight not leaving on time until the next day, we arrived one day late so we incurred extra expenses(Local hotel, & extra taxis). good thing we got the protection plan which I will be filing a claim for all the extra expenses. I expect the coverage will reimburse. Also, I did not like when the check in clerks at 2 airports tell me my flights were overbooked and we had to wait on a seats of a no-show customer, I was appalled & disgusted my stomach would turn each time, luckily we got the last available seats. I cant imagine if we hadn't. Great Value has to answer me on that one, and after we got our seats my niece and I had to sit separately each time. I was all the way in front and she sat way in the back. Overall the flights were 50/50 good and bad, the countries & sites were great & tour guides were excellent.

    Paris was wonderful! The hotel was disappointing! Breakfast was ok. Room service was ok. The bed was made not changed the towels were hung back up not replaced. No wash clothes. The restaurant though open was only for groups. We ordered a cab from them that was posted 32 EUROS but cost 65.
    As part of the package we could go to the different museums but you needed to make reservations. We were sent this 3 days before we left and everything was scheduled 1 week or more out so we had a 2-4 hour wait in line. We ended not taking advantage of the passes because we didn't want to waste hours standing in line. We ended up buying our own tours while there at a much cheaper rate then charged by great value vacation. I gave 3 stars because even at the worst we were in Paris. The package for the price was not worth it!
