UHF frequencies are more "bendable" and are better in cities with buildings. For open country range, VHF is far better. GMRS is supposed to be licensed though few people get one. GMRS is illegal with an external antenna. The antenna on handheld GMRS severely limit range. Though few people are busted with external antennas on GMRS, the FCC has made example of a few with very expensive fines.
