This tour was exceptionally good. The places we visited were spectacular and especially the erosions were so beautiful that I never wished to move from that place. What a natural beauty that I totally forgot myself. I was hauled by others from that place or else I would have just stuck to it. Of course the other places we visited the Yosemite park, the Falls, the Vegas strip and not to miss the shopping outlet. Everything was perfect from the day 1 and I will recommend this tour operator. I also give 5 stars as it is worthy and valuable.

This tour was great, the bus condition was good. The guide and the driver assured at every point we were safe. Though I am not a kid, it was nice to be looked after by someone, the guide, and we could just move without thinking about the next and see places that were beautiful on the earth. It was indeed a lifetime memorable experience. To make it long standing I have taken plenty of photos. It was wonderful, but I was not happy as I could not make good with shopping. I am not good in selecting and as usual was confused that I bought nothing.
