I thought the 5 days tour was too much for only few places to visit, but I was wrong. Going from one place to another and spending time in each place really took the 5 days. The tour operator did a good job and it was me who realized only finally that we required these numbers of days to visit and immerse in each place. We were given ample time to roam around each place and were also informed by the guide of the dangerous places and famous points that it became simple to enjoy each place as we wished.
The tour was great fun; fortunately the most of us were youngsters in the same age group. In fact, it was nothing short of some college excursion. The guide also enjoyed our company, though at times he must have found us irritating, but as a good man he did not show any changes in his expression. Thanks for this lovely tour. The operator did a great job and all the places the zion national park and Grand Canyon were worth visiting and so was the horseshoe bend. The bus tour operator ensured we all were back to our places safely and this was really touching.
I recommend this 5 days tour package. I cannot believe that I visited such remarkable places. It was worth the money spending. The accommodations were in the best of the hotels marking good rooms to stay and everything was beyond words, good, sophisticated and the transport mode was the best. Traveling 5 days was like a breeze. We could not realize because everything went smoothly and we were treated with respect.
The Zion national park was good and had a lot to cover that I felt they could have arranged for some inside traveling facility. I do not like much of walking and that made me felt giddy. I rate 4 stars only. The hotel and the food were good, so were the driver and the good man guide. He was good at explaining and it appeared that there was a need to just touch a button and he would start explaining about each place. He never bothered if someone made fun of him and explained that was essential. Good job.
Actually, I do not have any strong reason to give 4 stars and my aim is giving five stars will make them careless or over confident. I do not know if I am right or wrong, but to be on the safe edge I give 4 stars so that the need to pay attention is always open. I loved the Zion national park and its range of plants and animals that were so great and fun that I took plenty of photos. This place is not worth missing and good the tour operator included it in this tour. Good tour package.
I enjoyed this tour and all the places we visited. The first day alone was disappointing as our flight arrived delayed and we were the last to be picked up and so had to wait at the airport for some time to be transported to the hotel. Otherwise the places were interesting; the accommodation was perfect and the transportation good.
