We started this bus tour all the way from Seattle city, which only took us to some of the famous sites around the region. Glad, we got to tour the Crater Park which was absolutely beautiful with its pristine lake, great views and photography are absolutely one of the best things to do. However, the last day of our journey was more fun and exciting than any other, since we roam around the San Francisco city stopping by at the famous landmarks, it just helped us get around the town in a great way. Thanks.
Amazing food and amazing hotels to stay comfortably in every night made this trip wonderful for me. I had energy to travel around every day of this trip. For those looking to travel at reduced costs like me, this trip is perfect for them. I booked this with a couple of friends and the cost sharing felt very feasible. Amazing bus service, amazing locations to visit, memorable pictures to take with the best backgrounds and memories to take back home with me made this trip perfect for me
There were just couple of sick children on the bus who never stop crying to their parents, on the other hand, we had to cover long distances on the bus full of people. I wouldn’t say my tour experience was disappointed by the children’s shouting and irritation, but the tour was remarkable in its own way, the bus guide was a nice person who had been a great guiding person for all the passengers. We should have spent more time in Portland because that city has a lot to offer to its visitors. Good days.
