If you ask me about my personal experience I would say traveling on buses were easy and but too much traveling caused the tour to be lazy, although I would absolutely appreciate the kind services provided by our travel guide on the bus. The destinations are truly the most wonderful ones. Lovely!

Some hotel locations are in rural/suburban area so its not easy to locate international food in the vicinity, unless you are happy eating delivered pizza for 11 nights! In short ,great tour,very tiring ,many hours travelling in a coach,too many attractions crammed into too these days !!!!!
It was good. The hot geysers erupting from earth at Yellowstone park with colorful abstract do question our imaginations and thanks for the tour host for the information about anything since the tour had so many great places, we enjoyed a lot throughout our course of twelve days. Hotels could have been a lot better but they were OK.
I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.

The tour itself was very hectic but loads to do and see, beware your up early in the morning 6 am usually without breakfast,and back in hotel at 9 or 10 pm. 95% of the group are Chinese as was the tour guide and driver.Hotels are very basic but clean. Food is generally eat as you go ,never time for a decent meal.
Attractions were excellent but rushed .Tour guide on the whole was good but was more biased towards the Chinese , was angry at the end of the tour when we were just dumped off the coach in a place we were not familiar with and the tour guide was very unhelpful
What a wonderful vacation!, we had a real amazing time. The tour organizing was more than great, and our tour guide was a real nice guy. We saw a lot of wonderful things, like Grand Canyon, Eagle Point, Guano Point, Skywalk, Glen Canyon Dam, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park ,Mount Rushmore,Great Salt Lake Silicon Valley, Twin Peaks, Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge. I just wish there were no mandatory fees. But it was really worth it.
Great Tour!! My parents from India enjoyed this 12 day tour. The best part of this Tour was Yellowstone and Grand Canyon. Of course rest of places were also good. The tour was well planned and guided. Food options for Vegetarians are minimal. But most of the Hotels are nearby Grocery Stores and end of the day you can pick some stuff.
The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly, yet very professional at the same time. both accommodation and transportation are really luxurious. We saw a lot of nice places for the first time like San Francisco, Yellowstone National Park, Jackson town, Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Buffalo Bill Dam, Mud Volcano, Hayden Valley, Devils Tower, Mount Rushmore,Grand Canyon, Eagle Point, Guano Point, Skywalk, Glen Canyon Dam, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Grand Teton National Park.
The best thing in that tour was Grand Canyon Helicopter and Cruise, it was really like a dream for me, Also Grand Canyon Skywalk and Grand Canyon West Rim were amazing. Yellowstone National Park was also great.We really liked San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Twin Peaks, Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge, and Fisherman\'s Wharf. Our tour guide was a really nice guy and we really enjoyed everything starting from the bus to the hotels we stayed at. It was really a great tour and great vacation. I really would like to thank Golden Bus Tours for their great services.
