It was quite a lovely experience for all of us not only because we had such a wonderful place to explores, but also because we had all the time in the world to take a trip to the Olympic Park. At first, we thought the park was just about a couple of acres, but that was humongous, it’s was like a massive city of nature. Great time spent in Olympic Park. On our last day, the tour team took us to the German Village, before that, the Snoqualmie Falls brought a fine start of the day.
We definitely admire the great facility of booking the tour seats online, also we got a free ticket discount which was really something. The prices of this bus tour were just OK, and not much expensive. The reason for us to experience this bus tour was to take our mind off of the daily busy routine. We relished our time on the bus tour while exploring those famous Olympic National Park, Snoqualmie Falls, and so on. Hurricane Ridge and that old town tour helped us to buy presents for our relatives back home. It’s a perfect bus tour for us!
I had a couple of days off from my work, and I wanted to make the most out of it. Naturally, I planned the road trip but it was too tiresome and not worthwhile. So, I came across this tour and I'm glad I did... These were the best two days of my life. The Snoqualmie Falls were so beautiful, I could show you if I could post pictures here. Anyhow, great tour, great prices, and very effective organization.
to be honest, we don’t entirely appreciate the way the tour was delivered to us. First of all, we had Olympic National Park stop on our very first day, despite the park being so enormous, we only stopped at one site, and then we had to go explore the popular sites there on our feet. We just had to do all the explorations all by ourselves. It could have been a lot better if had some other destinations on our first. Later, the shopping and lunch at the small historical German town were refreshing.
My girlfriend opposed me when I told her, we should go on this tour. But after a lot of convincing, she finally agreed. Now she can't stop talking about it, I don't even blame her... the tour was so magnificently organized and the places we saw were just indescribable. There is really some great beauty hidden in the daily hustle and bustle of Washington.
