I would admit that our tour experience was entirely the ideal and exactly the sort of bus tour we were expecting it, since we had the professional tour operators and very nice bus guiding person, who did a great job delivering us information and guiding us to the certain major destinations. We spend so many days on this tour, hopefully, we stayed in a decent hotel, including the West Yellowstone hotel where we had a beautiful view of nature from our room window. Those were some great days only because we had the immense stamina hiking up and down at the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and certain other destinations. Thanks.
I am very fond of natural beauty and adventure tours. I booked for the Golden bus tours to give myself a treat on my birthday. It was an 11-day tour to Las Vegas and covered many places such as Yellow Stone National Park, Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. The bus guide helped each tourist with knowledge and assistance, if required. He was courteous and the bus driver well mannered. A nice tour and I recommend.
I boarded this tour with my girlfriend last month, and we both can’t seem to shut up about it, we absolutely loved the tour. It was a bit long (11 days) but it was all worth it. Our favorite spot would definitely be the Yellowstone Park and the Grand Canyon.
The tour executed perfectly on time and it followed the schedule as provided earlier. I don’t know, I wasn’t aware of some of the optional tours that are also part of this tour, and they cost extra. Well, that was my misunderstanding; the company did an awesome job. Yellowstone is one hell of a beautiful place for you to must visit.
We went a group all family members and visited the tour places for 11 days. Nice to be in a group but each of us had seats away from one another. We saw the places and could catch up with a lot of detail that each one of us promised to go on another tour from the same bus operator.
at the very beginning of our journey I was wondering if we could ever be going to enjoy this expensive bus tour or not, we had a bus full of people on board with us, despite the great number of people, we had a such a lovely time. Of course, the tour management provision was appreciable managing all the people and making sure everyone’s having a great time. Grand Canyon, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Las Vegas were the best spots where we had a memorable time and took really great photographs. Thanks for the discounts.
