We chose this trip for our family vacation with our four kids. It turned out perfectly. The kids got to learn a lot about nature and history, thanks to our guide who had a very funny and creative way of teaching that resonated with the kids. Each and every day presented new learning opportunities and fun things to do that our kids totally loved. The ten days just seemed to fly by so fast and we were so sad to leave. I have recommended this to some of my friends for their family vacation.

A ten day tour was much awaited and my family and I left from San Francisco city to Stanford University, Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake city, Lake Powell, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Chocolate Factory, Botanical Cactus Gardens and many other beautiful destinations. I have recommended it to a lot of my friends. This package is perfect for any family trip.

Fun, education and adventure all packed in one. We definitely got value for money since the prices were competitive, the bus was very comfy, the guides quite friendly and the places we visited were just perfect. I was very content with the trip and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to save some cash but still experience quality

The 10 day tour package was really long and they covered very few places and so had more than enough time. I personally felt they could have included two more places so that it would have been good spending of time.

This trip was basic not classic. The hotels were simple 3 star hotels, the bus was comfortable not luxurious and even the guides seemed a bit dull though they were quite competent. You get what you pay for and this trip was pleasant and comfortable but not the finest.
