My wife and I just go more interested in the magnificent architecture they have in San Francisco. We have to skip the cruise that they offered in the very start of the tour, rather than that cruise we planned to have a walk around the decent avenues with that historical architecture. We somehow tried our best get along with the tour team, but we didn’t mus appreciate the fact that all people visit a certain place altogether, therefore, we sneaked out to our time to ultimately we had the best tour experiences so far. My wife really appreciates the tour not only because of the great places but also because they provided us with great hotels and the transpiration was really conformable. We couldn’t ask for more. Thanks for making this bus trip so wonderful!

the day we hopped on this bus journey, I realized something that we are going to be super busy on the tour exploring places back to back. The tour leader just provided with the information related to our stops and activities. I love the way the tour leader helped all the passengers on board. According to our tour experience, I would like to mention few things such as the back to back stops on the stop, and then we had great hotels to stay the night. It was quite lovely being part of the tour which has all the things we wanted in the first place. However, the most fun we had been at the Yosemite National Park because there was already so much to do and to explore in that massive national Park. I’m sure it’s the best tour anyone could ever experience with everything well managed by the tour teams! Thanks a lot.

the way the tour was delivered to deserve massive appreciation for all the people who managed and executed it. On the first day, the tour guides were waiting for all the passengers, the majority of guests were already there waiting for all the other guests to jus start on this bus tour. It was the morning time when the tour guide led the tour group to the bay area to board the cruise which was really fun and the views of the region while cruising the bay river was really impressive since all the great attraction in San Francisco are lined up with the waterway on which cruise, it was nice to see the Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. Good thing is that we cruised beneath the Golden Gate Bridge to take some really amazing photographs. We had all the time in the world to just fully visit the Yosemite National Park, good to be around such a beautiful nature. Cheers to the great team1

My parents already loved the Yosemite National Park. As we explored the major places in Yosemite, we discovered that they have a massive campground for the visitors looking to camp out in the wild in speculator setting of awe-inspiring nature. Although we were pretty helpless for a camp for the night in the Yosemite, the tour leader mentioned us that we have to move along the tour and not dismiss it for some camping. Anyways, we definitely appreciate the time we had at the bay area San Francisco, the tour manager was really nice on the first day, they on the second everyone got lazy and but that didn’t interrupt our tour experience since we enjoyed and had fun on our own and not get to know any passenger on board, even the tour guide on the bus nice but has got to the job in a professional manner. Anyhow, the Hoover Dam is wonderful despite its name which just pronounces as a dam but that landmark is humongous and the viewpoint was just breathtaking. Days well spent!

the tour started out somewhere in the San Francisco. It was great to see the fact that the tour team provided us with what we required which include the luxurious service, good stops, hotels, and most importantly the food was great no matter where ate. Mentioning the Bay cruise we had to board on the first day It was already pleasant weather in San Francisco so the bay cruise made it even more wonderful and pleasant for us. However, we thought of having another cruise but we had to travel to some other destination inside the city, so we couldn’t get to have another cruise in the bay area. I really wish that we could be able to alter to change our schedule according to our desire, rather we have to stick to the schedule and we did. We spent our entire first day wandering around the top landmarks in the city. However, the next day trips included the Yosemite National Park, El Captain Sites, Yosemite Waterfalls, and then we finally explore the Las Vegas the way we wanted to visit. Love the night shows there.

my family had to come with me on this bus tour since there was already a massive space on the bus, and I just always wanted to take my kids out with me on the vacations. However, this time, my wife and I booked the tour seats online since we knew kids would need a lot of attention so we had to book the tour seats and not go on the vacations all by ourselves. However, the tour started in San Francisco, we remember the time when the tour manager escorts us and put the luggage. It was nice been part of the crew that knew how to have such a wonderful time and visit the places that truly deserve a visit like Las Vegas The best time we had was at the Las Vegas, the casinos, lights, and magnificent environment of Las Vegas just made the whole bus trip worth it. Perfect for families and friends!

It was already the start of the summer season, therefore, we had to just book this tour, in fact, the journey doesn’t have any stops at the beaches, but still we enjoyed the coastline beauty while traveling from the Bay Area, and the cruise was something more exceptional than the entire tour. The tour was so wonderful with having that bay cruise in the start of the bus tour; I just made the entire trip so excited because we were going to be enjoying this bus journey due to its amazing beginning and great tour people. However, I noticed the diverse community onboard with us since the majority of the tour passengers came from different countries and cultures and the best part is that everybody seemed to enjoy this bus tour. I think the tour management should have more time for us to spend in Las Vegas because that tour needed more Las Vegas. Anyways! Loved the tour.

I couldn’t be more excited in my life than on this bus tour we joined from San Francisco. The four-day journey is pretty expensive in such a way that we have to pay for everything like the admission charges, hotels, food, and then came the tips for everyone who served. The point is the tour, our budget exceeded the limit we first guessed. Other the pricing, the tour was of course so much fun especially the time, they drove us to Las Vegas was the best because as knew stopped there, we went start to the MGM Grand because the show was live and we didn’t want to miss the live show, it was also airing for the television, it was just so nice to visit Las Vegas anytime in life. The night we send in Vegas was at the Linq Hotel, although we slept for just a few hours since we enjoyed the casinos all night. The tour management and stops were really great.
