Going on tours was a pending list for a long time and now I have materialized it. My fondness was towards the outlet shopping tour. An impressive shopping with fascinating deals and offers that the varieties were the best, but I found some were pricey. The collection was the best.
I took the deal from goldenbustour.com of the 4-day bus tour. The reason for taking the deal was because it’s reasonable and my children were willing to take the vacation trip. The bus tour started from Los Angeles. The bus took us to Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Ethel M Chocolate Factory, Botanical Cactus Garden, and few other attractive locations with hotel accommodations.
Everything about this trip was awesome, from reasonable rates to luxurious buses. I was quite impressed with the service we received. It was an exciting guided tour to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. We got a free ticket on purchase of 2 so we, group of 3 friends, could enjoy the tour and are thankful to GoldenBustours for this great offer. I will definitely recommend it to everybody
Great tour. Awesome guide, Gary who did a marvelous job. But for the traffic jams in LA on the return journey, every aspect of the tour had been well planned and organized. Let me also scribe down a quick summary of how this went by for us recently. Day 1 - We landed in LAX airport and there was a person waiting to pick us up and board onto the hotel shuttle. That was really good. We paid $30 for the hotel drop-off. The hotel was good and served a good breakfast the next day morning. And there was a supermarket nearby from which we were able to buy some stuff like juice and snacks Day 2 - Started from the hotel in LA at around 7.30 am with Gary allotting us seats and starting the journey to LV. There were couple of more pickup points with tourists joining the trip. The first stopover was at Bairstow station for coffee. Then the next stopover was at Fashion Mall Outlets on the outskirts of LV, where we had lunch as well. Then finally we reached the STRAT hotel in LV in the evening. After a break, we went onto the "night tour" of LV (charged separately). The tour was interesting and exciting that lasted for about 3:30 hours. Day 3 - We were told to be ready by 5 am for the Grand Canyon West Rim tour and we were ready too. One batch of tourists left for the tour of South Rim and another batch for the Antelope GC tour. But we were stuck due to an issue with the bus and were told to get back to rooms and be ready for the revised tour departure at 9 AM. That was disappointing, but we had no other choice. But I have to mention that Gary managed to get another bus quickly and we were able to start the tour at 9 AM. The first stop was at Hoover Dam which was a great spectacle in itself. Then the tour proceeded to Grand Canyon West Rim. It was a long journey indeed. We reached GC at around 1 pm and were told that we were told to be back at the bus by 5 pm. Gary was kind enough to collect the money from the tourists and got us the tickets at GC, thereby saving precious minutes. Some tourists took the helicopter tour as well. We departed from GC at around 5 pm and were able to reach the hotel back in time for dinner. Day 4 - Departed from LV hotel at 7.30 am and the first stop was at the Chocolate Factory + Cactus Garden. Then after a short journey reached Chang's Asian Dimsum restaurant where we were able to taste some interesting Asian delicacies. The tour departed from this place at around 10.30 am and after a long journey reached the Bairstow Outlets in CA. Got a 2 hour break to have lunch and do some shopping as well. The journey restarted at around 3 pm but had to tackle the heavy traffic in and around LA as we were nearing the city. We were about 70 miles away from LA when the driver found a technical snag in the bus and had to stop it. Gary was frantically trying to check for alternatives in the meantime. He even went to the extent of arranging one van for the tourists proceeding to the airport and another mini-bus for the other tourists. But luck was on our side that the bus driver was able to FIX the technical snag himself and the journey restarted within a few minutes. We were all really amazed at the manner in which Gary and the driver, both handled the tense moment. Full marks to both of them. We were able to reach LAX airport well ahead of time to catch our return flight to our place. On the whole, it was a memorable trip. Gary was an awesome guide to be able to conduct the tour in a professional manner. He was also giving the commentary in both English and Chinese languages fluently. One tip that I would like to provide to other tourists is to try choose a tour that has lesser time on the road to avoid the kind of experiences that we had to encounter.
That tour was amazing, we saw some pretty amazing things and places like Ethel M Chocolate Factory, which was really impressive, and the great Grand Canyon Skywalk. Also i really liked Cactus Gardens, there were really beautiful. The tour guide was a nice person and the hotels were really comfortable and clean, i would really join that tour again.
I was really excited to go on that tour and i have always wanted to go to Grand Canyon, and it was even more beautiful than i ever thought it would! OMG what an amazing place! it was like a dream, i had a wonderful time there. I also really loved the Chocolate Factory, and Cactus Gardens. I would really like to thank Golden Bus Tours for putting together such an amazing tour.
I would give that tour 4 stars, sure the places we went to were amazing, and the tour was really organized well, but i had a problem with a few things, first thing is that the bus was not as comfortable as i thought, second thing is that attractions were not included and there was a a mandatory fee for Grand Canyon, i really don\'t think that any attraction should be a a mandatory thing, that was the only 2 things that bothered me during that tour. Other than that it was very nice.
