I have not gone out with kids on bus tours, but this time I had to since we got a quite appreciable discount on booking our seats. The journey, overall, was great, but at some point, it got a little lazy traveling for hours on a bus. Plus the Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Zion Park, and Bryce Canyon stops were our favorite. Great chance of photography with good tour provision. Good days!

The services provided by our paid tour management was absolutely admirable. Our bus guide, Michelle was such a nice person in providing us the luxury services, ultimately providing us the best tour experience. The places on our tour were the best ones, Temple Square, hot geysers at Yellowstone just took our breaths away. The Bryce region hotels very just as decent as every other hotel in which spent our nights. I think it‘s reasonable tour, best for families and friends, or if you are an explorer, then it‘s an absolute paradise.

The pick up/drop off point was very convenient and included good attractions. It covered all the major spots in the Yellowstone National Park and that was my main priority. I took my parents on the tour and duration of tour was ideal for our schedule. My parents really enjoyed the whole itinerary and I am oblige to the company for that. The tour guide was very nice, helpful and friendly. In fact, my father jelled up nicely with her. She talked with all tour members jovially.

The driver was nice as well. She kept the time well and drop off point was on time. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the National Parks in the West Coast. However, make sure you travel in a group of 2 or more because it is more economical for group travelers.. This was my 2nd tour with GoldenBusTours, took one in June from New York City.

I traveled with my mom and she really enjoyed the tour 5-Day San Francisco to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Salt Lake City Tour . We had so much fun, and its absolutely worth it. And to our surprise we got to stay in Yellowstone cabins. Even though it was an extra upgrade for an additional amount but we got it without any extra cost. I am not sure why but when our tour guide told us about it, we were delighted to know. Believe me it is worth staying there even for an extra cost. The night view and sunrise view is the most AMAZING thing.
