Trip Report Great Value Vacations - NOT

Jump to last reply

I have read some great reviews of GVV and I wish we had the same experience. Our trip was Dublin, London, Paris.
Dublin - nice hotel 45minutes outside of town!!! And our room overlooked the service parking lot. Needless to say a lot of time spent on the Luas tram in transit.
London - decent hotel and good location with helpful staff. However due to conflicting information between our official itinerary and our travel vouchers we received from GVV, our London stay was cut short, missed train to Paris and but for the kindness of an employee at Eurostar, we would have had to shell out an additional $600 out of pocket for new tickets. She even called GVV herself after reading my travel docs and was so angered by the response she got, she got us new tickets at no cost!

Paris - 3 star hotel in a bad part of town 30 minutes out of center city. Scared walk to and from metro for transit.
