we had to take long flight from Toronto airport to reach Seattle on our first day, we left our hometown in the midnight just we could reach the Seattle city on time. The escort service was pretty appreciable, they not only welcomed us upon reaching the departure but also they guided us about the tour. The tour services were decent and quite appreciable. We are so glad that we enjoyed our bus trip and explored so many wonderful places. Later, the hotels were always the best to spend the night. Thank you for the great team!

It is just impressive to see the diverse community on board, people from different communities came to our land to see the core charm of the beauty. Also to mention that we have quite many stops on our way, such as the Florence Beach and Multnomah Falls were truly the most memorable places I found on this tour. The bus guide was an intelligent young person providing us with great luxury services throughout our trip. At the end of the, we stayed at the Days Inn hotels which is just as decent one could ever anticipate. Thank You!

According to our recent experience on this bus tour, we found so much about this mainstream bus tours. First of all, the buses and the staff were great, but we had to travel so much on the buses since our almost the entire stops were quite far away from one another. The best time we had was at the Crater Park, and at the Columbia River Gorge. Great shopping, stops, and people!

the tour went fine, although the tour days were pretty exhausting but fun. My husband and I departed on this three-day bus journey in the last summers. I was really excited to explore Grotto because it was not only a worship area but also dwells another world of complete wonder and lure of nature. The tour agency did quite an excellent job by adding Woodburn Premium Outlets in the tour destinations because I bought presents for my kids and other relatives from there, and we didn’t have to go somewhere else to select gifts, thus it saved me a much time. Anyways, I appreciate the Quality Inn Hotel for their great service. Best Tour!

I wished that the part remained opened, the Crater Park, rather it was closed, then our bus guide drove us straight to Portland, where we had to explore the city’s famous visitor’s attractions. The first day was a huge drag for us, we got tired quick since we had to do a lot traveling on our feet. The Pittock mansion was huge; wonder if we got more time to explore that place, loved the antiques down there. There should be some other destinations for those who don’t want to have an outlet shopping experience at the so-called famous outlet mall.

Starting the journey from Seattle Chinatown was quite facilitating for us, especially the online seat booking. Our tour guide was such a remarkable person who provided us all the information regarding our journey and guides us throughout our bus journey. Anyways, we think there should some more destinations for the visitors, rather than visiting quite a few in a day. Our hotels were the best! Thank you, team!

The first thing you want on vacation tour is the peace of mind with a well-planned trip. Taking this bus journey was a right choice for our family since they took us to so many wonderful places. I liked the buses, hotels, destinations, and the host person on the bus – thanks for making our trip an absolutely luxurious one. Great time spent.

on my days in America with my few friends, I decided to save us the time and fatigue to self-explore the Seattle and other similar cities and booked this 3-day tour. The tour was quite slow but they let us have enough time to fully explore certain attractions such as the International Rose Test Garden, the Grotto, and Sea Lion Cave. They were really attractive places and full of excitement. Personally, I don’t like to shop around for the outlets but when they let us visit Woodburn Premium Outlets, I bought several clothing pairs for myself and it was the first time I enjoyed shopping around. Those were good three days!
