My kids absolutely loved it. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Yosemite National Park and a lot of other central attractions, what more could we have asked for at such affordable prices. Also the tour guide was very friendly and accommodating; we didn’t feel out of place even once. Relaxed timings and great schedule made the tour even more fun. We didn’t have to rush from one point to another and got to explore each place on our own pace. Definitely recommended!

The tour included outlet tour was a great attraction and we proceeded to this tour. They gave us freedom and the bus tour was comfortable. The stay at the hotels was also decently good. The guide and the tour took the best of the effort to see we were comfortable.
