This Jan I decided to take my parents on this tour as they were scared to board a bus for long hours in the beginning and it was a task for me to get them ready. While we sorted things and settled, I was more than happy for this decision. It was a smoother transition as the tour operator and the guide offered all the worldly assistance to my parents. The trip was awesome and the tour guide was amazing and wonderful. He took care as if we were his family and now parents are listing places they wished to see.
We had a wonderful trip and our tour guide was extremely helpful. The beauty was that the tour was very well planned and coordinated. The travel and food was decently taken care of. The schedule was good and we covered most of the important places. Will definitely go on another tour with them again, it is worthy. The spots we covered had good staff and everything was almost well maintained. In one place, the afternoon food quality was just below average, but as we already had a good breakfast, it did not bother us. Thanks for such a tour and lovely memories.
Me and my family had a really great time on that tour. We saw a lot of amazing stuff. It was really great as this was our first time as an Indian family to see these places in USA. Places like Idaho Falls,Yellowstone,Grand Teton National Park,Old Faithful, and alsoHayden Valley. I want to thank Golden Bus Tours for organizing that great tour
It was really a great tour. The most thing that i loved was Yellowstone, it was extremely beautiful! We really had an amazing time during this tour, we were so happy especially that the tour were very well organized, and we moved right on schedule and there were no delays, also the hotels were very clean and comfortable.
The tour was very organized, and the tour guide was really friendly and helpful. i really loved that guy, he did a great job in organizing that tour, and helping the people, also the people on the tour were very friendly and we even made new friends! i liked the bus, the hotels and of course the people, i just wish food was included as we had to pay extra for food.
That tour were really nice. A lot of nice places we saw during these days, we really enjoyed every place of the amazing places we saw like, Temple Square, Mormon sisters, Governor’s Mansion, Lion House, Idaho Falls, Snake River bank, Yellowstone, Upper Falls, Norris Geyser, Artist Point, Old Faithful, Hayden Valley, Fishing Bridge, Grand Prismatic, Fountain Paint Pot , Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Grand Teton National Park. Great job Golden Bus Tours.
I really did not like the fact that admissions were not included! we had to pay extra for admissions like Salt Lake,Yellowstone,Snow king mountain Cable Car,Grand Teton, and this was also mandatory along with the daily tip which was $9 per person. In my humble opinion tips should be an optional thing. But other than that the tour was really nice.
The tour itself was really nice and we saw some amazing and beautiful things like Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, and Grand Teton National Park. But there were a couple of thing that i did not like at all, like the fact that there was no Wifi on the bus, and also the hotels were not 4 or 5 stars, although there were clean and comfortable enough.
We had an amazing time during this tour, we were so happy with the organization and punctuality of the tour. We moved on time, there was no delay, the tour guide was very professional and he also was really friendly and helpful . the Bus and hotels were comfortable and clean. i Just did not like that the restroom on the bus was closed, as it was for emergencies only.
It was my first time to go to Yellowstone , and i never new it was this beautiful! we saw a lot of amazing places, Yellowstone, Upper Falls, Norris Geyser, Artist Point, Old Faithful, Hayden Valley, Fishing Bridge, Grand Prismatic, Fountain Paint Pot , Mud Volcano, Yellowstone Lake, West Thumb Geyser Basin, Grand Teton National Park. We had an amazing time.
