This vacation was just the right amount of time to visit Buenos Aires. Our hotel perfect-from location, to cleanliness, to service. I can't say enough about the staff! They were incredible. On the whole, the people of Argentina were very friendly, the food was fantastic and taxi drivers were great.
We did have a little confusion over our vouchers before departing. We had received an erroneous hotel change which lead to further confusions. All was resolved the day before departing which was very stressful.

We had a fantastic trip to Ireland! The package included our airfare, lodging, and a rental car which was very accommodating to have all of that set up. All the hotels we stayed at were also true to the descriptions and perfect for what we needed. Overall it was a great deal, and we already want to plan another trip to experience the country in the summer months!

Our hotel (Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach) was great, right across from the beach. It included beach chairs too, if you got down early enough before they ran out as well as a reusable tote bag and reusable water bottles. Alaska Airlines were very efficient too.

The hotel in London Thistle Bloomsbury was in a great spot. Conviently located on a bus route with a bus stop very near the hotel's front door. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The hotel in Paris, the Ibis Alesia, although clean, was a bit out of the way. The neighborhood eateries in the area of the hotel were very ethnic. We were hoping to be able to take advantage of more authentic French foods. One skimpy towel per person was rather spartan. BUT for the money, it was a very good getaway with a taste of both cities.

There was one pretty major oversight in our booking. Our hotel wasn't booked on our arrival. Luckily we were able to pay for the room out of separate funds upon our arrival. Still, a nasty surprise by GVV.

Our vacation was great and I will definitely look for more great deals in the future. I would have given you 5 stars but there were some problems with our companions travel arrangements! Not sure whether the screw up was Gv's fault or the hotel's. So I only deducted 1 star.
