It was really an awesome tour. More than my expectation. Thetour was planned very well. We covered all the places. Adequate time was given for all points.Reserved hotels were good. The tour guides and drivers were trained and managed thing in a best possible way. We spent the best time at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite park and San Francisco. At the start, I was not interested to visit outlets but the prices were very cheap, I bought outfits for my family. But the whole day is more than enough for it we can cover some other place during this time. I recommended this tour to my friends and fellows. Missing good time and lovely places.
A very memorable trip with much fun and adventurous activities were also a part of this 5 day tour. I enjoyed the old town in San Diego city and shopping experience was incredible over there. All the five days were full of fun because it was not a routine bored trip. Its arrangement was unique with comprehensive exploration. We were never in a hurry. Much time was given to almost all destinations and that was the best thing for me. Hustle and bustle and quick visit always disturbs me in bus tours but this bus tour of five days never made me feel in a hurry. It was flexible trip and was all about us. Best trip of my life. Highly suggesting it to all ages that go and book it, feel it and enjoy it! Many thanks!
A happy long trip of five days was spent with an amazing bus and its team was also fantastic in all their areas of services. Long tours always give you memories but this long tour was a new experience because I was first time experiencing guidance and was bit worried that may be too much of explaining would not appeal me in this trip but no I was wrong because our tour guide was Alex and his professionalisms impressed me a lot. He knew how to make his guidance interesting and there was not a single place I liked without guidance. On reaching every destination I was searching Alex that he will now interestingly engaged in his information about all places. Things can be more enhancing in any trip with such type of fantastic guidance. I was so excited for the Disneyland tour and enjoyed it the most in this entire trip of 5 days where many other destinations were covered. I loved it simply and going to enjoy it again with my best buddy because it was an experience that was worth sharing and with balanced guidance. A lot of thanks!
What a day that was when we explored the amazing attractions of entire city of San Diego and the most attractive thing was the experience of Spanish architecture in that particular day. I joined this tour alone and was a part of crowded bus but I loved the fun inside the bus. Its music and hygiene was appreciable one and enjoyed a lot. Highly recommending it because its easiness and simplicity is the best part of it! There is much to enjoy in this bus with all the ease and simplest ways of booking it. Thanks
Amazing tour. I Joined this tour with my wife. I visited the US for the first time, I came from Australia. It was a lovely tour and a wonderful experience. The team was very helpful. My tour guide was very painstaking. He was giving attention to every individual and explaining the facts of the places we visited. I will give more numbers to Yosemite National park. We took a helicopter ride, it was the best experience. All the arrangements were fine. I was satisfied with all arrangements and tour plan. Completely enjoyed this trip. Highly recommended.
I am a thrill lover and what could be the most exciting thing for me in this 5 day bus tour other than thrilling ride of sky slide. Yes! the other destinations were exceptional as well and loved the detailing of this bus tour. The entire attractions were explored with good guides who seemed to be more energetic than us and that was the real spirit of this bus tour. I loved it; I admire it and certainly recommend it to go and its booking without delaying a second. All the 5 stars for best guided trip ever!
1 Best experiences were of the universal studio and Knott Berry Farm in this long trip of 5 days. All the five days were embedded with the attractiveness of amazing destinations where I felt great and got to know a lot about all beautiful places. Driver was very nice man and gave us much time at amazing attraction and never was in hurry but on the other hand he covered all the places of itinerary and that was a big talent and amazing skill of him. Thanks
It was a very detailed tour where entire day was given to specific cities and loved exploring all the interesting places in this long tour of bus. I was there with my sister and was super satisfied with all the 5 day accommodation as well. Los Angeles city was the exceptional experience for me in this 5 day bus tour with amazing information about all other lovely places as well. Bus was of good and enough size to accommodate all of us and I enjoyed shopping experience as well in this lovely trip. A lot of thanks!
