If I would ever been asked that where the beauty of nature ends, I would say Napa Valley. All the nature lovers should choose this trip because of Oregon Crater Lake, Napa Valley and San Francisco.
We had such a great time exploring Los Angeles in a way we’ve never done before. This one was hands down the best trip my wife or I have ever taken in our life, although we’ve been travel enthusiasts and toured about 10 different countries in all. Credit goes to GoldenBus Tours because they planned everything so well and executed it even better. I’d say if any one of you wants a tour that is affordable and serves you well, its GoldenBus Tours you should look towards.
It was a long in-depth tour exactly what I was looking for to get a break for stressful work routine. It proved to be the best decision. Golden Bus certainly offers the best service at an affordable price.
