Southern America is where I live, in the Corpus Christi town; therefore, as traveling being part of my hobby, I was destined to explore the Northern side of America as well. Because visiting south side has gotten not so much entertaining for me. Anyways, on this bus tour, we had been to Napa Valley wineries, Redwood National Forest, Crater Lake National Park, and countless other places that I can mention. I was excited from the first day of the tour because I couldn’t imagine how those destinations would make me feel as I visit them. Chinatown and Burney Falls were the best. I had a perfect opportunity of photography at the Klamath Falls as well as the Mount Shasta View Point. All the people were nice. But the Red Lion Hotel was the worst because it was almost full of guests.

Crater Lake National Park is the most wonderful scenic park which has had the most diverse color of water and sky that I have ever seen in my life. I appreciate this tour because we visited more than twenty or thirty attraction and the best part about it is that every attraction was awesome and pretty captivating. We started from the city of Los Angeles in a morning and went to Pyramid Lake which was like the peaceful and attractive part of a paradise. Thanks for the Napa Valley journey because we came across many wineries and I also get to buy few for my relatives as a present. The tour is actually a whole package of fun, entertainment, and wonder. San Francisco, we love you! Good, reasonable journey of five days.

I really had a nice time on that tour, we visited some amazing places, and hotels were also really nice. I just had a problem with that fact that the bus did not have wifi, which was an issue for me, also i was not happy with admissions part, those should have been included in the our price. Other than these 2 points the tour was really great and we had a great time.
