My fiancé and I were making plans for this for so long. Finally, on our Christmas Holidays, we got the opportunity to go out on the bus journey. Online booking deserves a massive appreciation with every information about the tour, we didn’t’ have to get into the fuss of booking our tickets by going somewhere. Just loved the 17-Mile Drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, SF Tour, and our hotel. Thanks, it has been a great time on the bus journey. Good Experience!

Hi. I want to thank all the team members including our bus guide who had been such a great help for our luxury tour experience. I liked each and every place we toured on our four days especially mentioning 17 Miles Drive area which is like a paradise on Earth. We took really great photos and thanks for checking us in at the best hotel which was Red Roof Inn. It couldn’t have been more pleasurable. We appreciate the tour just the way it was. Thumps Up!

It was easy for us to depart on the tour from our hometown Buena Park, the bus came right on time to pick all the guests then we began our journey of four days. Despite our great destinations, all the people, buses, hotel were as perfect as one could ever imagine. Like the way, we have been treated. The tour of four days was, even more, fun with my family as we enjoyed San Francisco, Pyramid Lake, and the outlet shopping mall is where we bought many presents for our relatives back home. It’s the best tour I have ever experienced.

I finally decided to take my kids out on this bus tour that I found on the trip. I have had already heard so much about the bus agency that they were really good at providing quality services, according to my personal experience with my kids I didn’t see it as much fun, just the 17-Mile Drive and Monterrey Bay Aquarium was the enjoyable part. I have been San Francisco many times, therefore the destinations we toured there didn’t interest me much, but I could see the people on board with us had a wonderful time who never had been here before. Our hotel was decent. Thank you for the tour, though.

I wouldn’t say that our bus trip was entirely the sort of enjoyment or excitement I was looking for. We just wander around the San Francisco city on our course of the trip. I think it was amazing the way we had toured the SF city. Our stays at the Red Roof Inn hotel was the only perfect thing I get to discover on our course of the bus trip. Although it could have been a lot of fun if we had several other destinations to visit, the ones we visited were very few as compared to the time.


I did not like the fact that admissions were not included, and we had to pay daily tip for the tour guide, but other than that the tour was really nice and we saw some pretty cool places like Pyramid Lake Museum, Fisherman\'s Wharf, Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Civic Center ,Chinatown, Twin Peaks, Golden Gate Park. So regardless of the admissions part it was really nice experience as we needed to blow off some steam.


That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included. In my opinion this was one of the best travel agencies i have dealt with, The tour was really very well organized, there was no delay, and we moved exactly on time. Our bus was really comfortable, and though there was no bathroom we stopped every while for break, the hotels also were really clean and cozy. So overall it was a great 4 days
