We departed from the Chinatown of San Francisco and I remember that I was pretty excited because of that reason we were going to be touring the Grand Canyons. It was good but the canyons covers a massive range as of an almost a city and if we keep seeing the same rock formations we might get bored, it do question our imagination that how they are formed and all that, but spending too much time at the Grand Canyon doesn’t sound a literal fun idea. However, some of the destinations such as the Ballard Locks, Portland, and Seattle all were good. I think the can be ever more perfect if the management put more attention to their clients as what they want to visit and how they are experiencing it. My wish of visiting Grand Canyon has been fulfilled, Thank God!

Having proper and best team to plan a vacation is the only suitable idea. As this 5-day bus journey has many places which required a lot of energy as the hiking in Grand Canyons wasn’t good for my parents to come with me on board, but instead, I decided to take my friends with me and found this excellent tour agency with reasonable tour deals. We choose this 5 days journey as we already had the week to be spent on the vacations. Harvest Moon Winery can be described in just three words: great people, wines, and the atmosphere. Visiting Grotto wasn’t just a bad idea as I was expecting it to be and instead, it’s now one of my favorite places. Experience Music Project Museum (EMP) is a paradise for music lovers as they hold many concerts throughout the year, we did enjoy exploring the history of pop culture music. The five days as a whole was considerably enjoyable and fun for my friends and me.
