I really want to thank Golden Bus Tours for organizing such a great tour, we moved on time, there was no delays, the bus was great, also the hotels were really clean and comfortable, the tour guide was really helpful and friendly. The places we went to were more than beautiful, we really had a wonderful time. Great job Golden Bus Tours
The most thing i loved about that tour was actually the tour guide! that guy was great! he was really friendly and funny, he also was very helpful in every way. Of course the places we went to were very beautiful, like Lake Tahoe and Red Rock. So i would really recommend that tour to my friends.
Well to be honest the tour itself were really nice and the places we visited were amazing, but i was not a big fan of the bus or hotels, the bus did not have Wifi, which is very important to me! also the hotels were clean and comfortable but they were not great. so over all it was nice but not great
