Well I definitely appreciate the West Yellowstone for being the most beautiful and scenic place in our country. One thing I didn’t understand that we could spend each night in the western Yellowstone since that place is so beautiful and waking up every morning there surrounded by the magical natural feels so good. Anyways, the 5 days were well spent on this bus tour, although we got the chance to do our exploring only on the next four days as we joined the tour on the first one, they should add more wonderful places on the first for us, ye we had all the time to go explore the city on our own, but with the professional team of tourism, we enjoyed the most. The thing which bugged was the diversity on the bus, some people don’t even understand the simplest of English language so I saw the efforts of a tour guide who tried making the passengers understand was saying. Our destinations and hotel rooms were extraordinary!
The days we spent on this bus tour were actually great, as compared to the previous bus tour which we took from Salt Lake City. This time we chose the perfect tour for us as my whole family was on board with me so I wanted to make this trip great for everyone. The bus tour started out pretty well from Salt Lake City, the next day we travel to the Lake Powell region, believe me, we were totally surprised by the charms of antelope canyon, as it was a completely different place instead of what we read about it. The narrow passageways at the Antelope Canyon led us to some of the hidden spots which we couldn't find out without touring the landmark from the inside. I was worried a little in the start of the bus tour that I and my family might not enjoy this bus tours, but it turned out to be the best tour we have ever experienced for the past couple of years. IT'S-A PERFECT EXPERIENCE FOR ALL THE GROUP, GOOD DAYS!
The day we started this bus tour was quite lazy, instead of going out in the Salt Lake City, the team decided to book us into the hotel rooms were had to spend the night and catch up some rest. I could understand that they were trying us to give us some free time, as we have just arrived in the country from the airport. The hotel shuttle was already waiting for us to just pick us all up and drop us at the hotel rooms. I like the services that were offered on this bus journey, this tour contained the hotel stays, famous spot visits, then comes the transportation which was nice, the buses had a nice driver and bus tour guide which provided us the quality services throughout this bus. I would definitely appreciate the Yellowstone National Park where we spent about 2 days, although it was a huge park, due to the excellent management, we happened to explore the Yellowstone National Park, the hot spots and the flowing geysers just made our days. Thanks for offering this bus tour on special holiday discounts. We are impressed!!
It was great being part of the tour group. We booked our tour online, first we picked out our favorite destination, and then there came the available tours, we chose this 5-day tour, at first we had so many questions about this tour, by the time all of my questions were answered by themselves, such as the tour was managed so well, we had food stops, we did the proper exploration, basically everything was right on their track. Overall, the tour experience was great, but I think we could have explored more places, yet that would take a lot of stamina and energy, on the other hand this tour was such a laid-back one, we didn’t have to do much on our own, we just enjoyed exploring places, eat good, stayed in just OK hotels, good transportation. Everything was great. Thanks a lot!
we have to spend the entire day in our hotel rooms as we joined this tour on the first. Still, we managed some time to go out in the lively streets of Salt Lake City. To be honest, we have never been to Salt Lake City before. With the help of this amazing journey, we are happy to conclude the fact that we have explored all the great sites in that city, as well as nearby that city, which includes the famous Yellowstone National Park. The temperature automatically dropped down as we entered the Jackson Hole town, the gravity was also low, we enjoyed the morning coffee there in the mountain; it was absolutely beautiful. We loved spending time on this amazing bus tour. Thanks to all the team members for making this trip so wonderful.
The tour includes a decent amount of information on the places we visited, along with recommendations on where to go. I would hands down do more of these tours. I had a great time, learned a lot about the community, and feel confident enough to walk through West Coast.
The best thing in that tour is we were picked up directly from the airport, and we were also dropped off at the airport, that was really helpful for us. we really enjoyed almost all the places we visited like Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Elk Antler Arch, Grand Prismatic Spring, Old Faithful Geyser, West Thumb, Fountain Paint Pot, Norris Geyser Basin, Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Fishing Bridge, Rocky Mountain Range, Devil’s Tower , Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Indian Memorial, Independent Rock, Utah State Capitol, and Temple Square
Golden Bus Tours is really an amazing company, it was my first tour with Golden Bus Tours and i really intend to do it again. Great organization and punctuality, really nice and helpful tour guide who deserved his daily tip for sure, and very comfortable cozy and clean hotels. In my opinion this was one of the best tour companies. I just wish id admissions and food were included, that would have been really amazing.
The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay and even during the tour we were right on schedule, it was a great effort from the tour guide who was a great guy by the way. The accommodation was really comfortable, really clean and cozy hotels and we saw some amazing places. It was really a great tour and great experience. I really hope i can do it again some time.
