This tour package actually tempted us to take this tour and it was a nice option. We spent a great time and were kept busy all the time with information and viewing places.

I always travel by this bus tour company. The thing I like most is their services and economical packages. Sights were beautiful, it is beyond my imagination and expectation. We visited all the places mentioned in the itinerary. We visited good food and coffee places. The accommodation has been just basic but comfortable. Satisfied with the tour. Recommended.

This 5-day bus tour was amazing. I went with my colleagues and everybody spent a remarkable time while exploring Horseshoe Bend, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Hill Aerospace Museum, Great Salt Lake, Cedar Break and several other locations. The offer was reasonable as they provide hotel accommodations.

I Started a trip from Los Angeles with my wife. It was a very well planned and well-managed tour. The tour guide was a reasonable man; he takes care of us and knows the best viewpoints of places. He is a good photographer as well. The bus seats were comfortable and wider. We started our tour early in the morning so we have enough time to visit places. I must suggest bringing snakes, mobile and camera charger and the extra pair of hiking shoes. Outstanding sights enhance the joy and excitement of the trip. Highly recommended.

It was one of the best 4 days for me and my fiancé. We started the journey in a fair bus from Los Angeles that took us to Stanford University, Solvang City, Silicon Valley, Yosemite National Park, and we explored the amazing San Francisco. It was a reasonable offer from goldenbustours.com because they provided the best hotel services at the locations in 4-day tour.

I am taking my kids to this 5 day tour as it covers canyon, national park and Mojave Desert. It was absolutely their choice, I actually was less interested, but that does not change things. My kids got they want, anyway I was happy. Things were as they wished.

The best thing in that tour was Yellowstone, it was our first time to go there, and it was really much greater than i even expected. Also Yellowstone Lake, Yellowstone waterfall, Yellowstone Canyon, Old Faith Geyser were amazingly beautiful. Also Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, Jackson, Grand Teton National Park were really great. That tour was really amazing and i hope i can do that again with my family.

That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions to Yellowstone were not included, it was actually also mandatory. But other than that the tour was really great and well organized, we enjoyed all activities and transportation was nice. Hotels were not 5 stars but they were clean and comfortable enough for us.
