I came from UAE for my holidays, after search we decided to take this tour. My experience was wonderful with them; the whole team was very supportive. Our tour guide Mr. O was a very friendly man, he guides me in an impressive way, and he has a worthy knowledge about every place. I also like all hotels. All places were wonderful; I have never seen such places before. I never forget the day I spent at Grand Canyon, what an amazing place, this was the most scenic view. The trip was long and somehow tiring also but it was worth it. Highly recommended.
I always enjoy traveling with groups that why I booked bus tours, it gives a true essence of the trip. Me and my wife planned our vocations, we both are nature lovers so I must say this tour was made for us. Amazing tour, beautiful places and lovely people.Last day I appreciate a different experience in chocolate factory.Tour plan was excellent and was on time, they covered almost all major places in a given period, accommodation was satisfactory but I recommend to slightly improve accommodations specially for long tours.
This was a new tour on the offering . Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Arches National Park, Antelope Canyon, Salt Lake City and Grand Canyon West Rim are the main attractions of this tour. This is a longer tour comparatively to others and it was real fun and I must say that we took the right decision by going on this tour. I will suggest to keep your clothes in waterproof bags as my clothes got wet while taking my bag from bus to hotel in Yellowstone on a rainy day :(

This deserves to be one of the most memorable tours I have ever done in my life and I rate this tour as 4-star. The rate becomes economical if you take a package of buy 2 get 1 free. Yellowstone National Park was simply relaxing and it is the favorite tourist spot for many. Grand Canyon and Grand Teton are truly amazing
