8. Reach Departure location about 20 to 30 minutes before departure time. Unfortunately, no one will wait for you in case you get in late. The bus mostly has Bus Operator name and logo on it. Even if you are five minutes late and miss the bus then GoldenBusTours or Tour Operator will not be responsible. There will be no refund in this case. You will be charged 100% tour fee.

9. Bring Cash to pay Tour Guide for Optional Activities. Activities are optional though, but every customer MUST purchase at least 2 attraction tickets. Few attractions are mandatory for all.

My experience of travelling through this bus tour was very good I think such trips would be the most well-organized, economical and comfortable than driving all the way in your own car. A great trip, all places were amazing and worth to visit. The whole team was cooperative and accommodating. Highly recommended.

After my retirement, I planned vacations with my wife. It was a long but wonderful trip. We visited many historical places. The whole trip was well organized and always on time. Our guide tour Mr. Don was a great man, a professional and helpful guide. He gave all the information for each place or monument. Accommodation and busses were ok. Well planned.

This tour was one of the best and I will remember this for my entire lifetime. I always wanted to explore Las Vegas, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon ( West Rim), Lake Tahoe and Mount Rushmore. Salt Lake City is a city filled with full of excitements. Yellowstone and Yosemite was worth a visit

The trip is bit expensive; however it gives a breather if you buy 2 as you get 1 free with it. We were a group of 3 and it was real fun to be at West Coast .The best part was Yellowstone and Grand Canyon and having an awesome night in Las Vegas. I would recommend if you are nature lover then visiting Yosemite is must for you
