We booked the 6 night Ireland Killarney Cottage experience. We had previously taken a group tour of Ireland and enjoyed it so much we decided to return on our own. The hotels that were booked through your company were excellent, the cottage was not as luxurious, perhaps we had been spoiled, but most enjoyable. We are definitely booking with Great value vacations again. Thank you for a most enjoyable trip.

Overall, I like the trip except The Hotel at Satorini , Milos Villas Hotel.. This Hotel is the worst experience of stay ever. I been in so many hotels never have this bad experience before.. The company should check with the local Agency to relocate to improve.

I have purchased a Ireland Vacation. Needed some clarification and help with logging in. Fred Frankel in customer service gave great clarification and many good suggestions. My only "pic" is their IT department needs to fix the "Reset" button on passwords. It does not work. But still the vacation, pricing, and customer service was all great. Bill Handley

The airline had overbooked us and we elected to take a later flight. GVV made sure the rest of our trip was still on schedule and was available 24/7 to answer our emergency call on a holiday weekend. I plan to use them again!

SCOOTING around Dubai and ABU DHABI: Enhancing my GVV via my mobility Scooter

My recent trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi was superb! GVV left no stone unturned. My flight was late arriving in Dubai; nonetheless, the GVV contact was waiting at the airport (despite my late arrival) to launch my transfer from the airport via a private fleet vehicle . Although I missed the mini-transport van, the GVV agent quickly set up my transport in a sleek Lexus and quickly loaded my luggage and my mobility scooter.

The 5-Star hotels were fabulous and catered to select fine dining, central locations and every imaginable service was available via highly-informed concierge service.

My GVV phone representative (Cynthia) was patient, knowledgeable and ready to research issues for which she did not have an immediate answer!

GVV Manager (Adrian) is top shelf with delivering stellar customer service! He was able to quickly correct a glitche and subsequently develop a great trip to Abu Dhabi.

MY recent travel was the first trip with GVV and will be tagged as the first of many future trips with Great Value Vacations!

BTW - my travel on Emirates was totally upscale! Due to the outstanding in-flight service, the 14-hour trip across the BIG POND morphed into a quick trip. Fourteen hours never passed so quickly!!! Our flight left Boston at 11:15 PM but we were served a light dinner (menu of exquisite late-night cuisine) - mostly vegan options, chicken and turkey. We were also served nutritious snacks, juices (Mango juice was amazing!), fruit and a full brunch prior to landing in Dubai.

On another note. the airlines. gound staff, tour staff, drivers, hotel staff and others were super supportive in folding and loading/unloading my 100 lb. mobility scooter.

I LOVED my GVV Package.
