Highly recommended tour. This can be considered as a very appropriate and organized trip. Destinations very cool and the services were very appreciable. I admire and appreciate this well-organized trip for all visitors with a safe driving and good guidance. I loved the beauty of Las Vegas along with its fun. Thanks
A full package of fun, services, destinations, accommodations, and perfect timing is the pure definition of this lovely bus tour. I loved every single place and enjoyed the shopping experience of Las Vegas outlet. I become a fan of our guide, he was very trained, nice and knowledgeable. Thanks for making this tour memorable. Love from Malaysia.
I was happy with this trip and its services when I get started my tour, but during booking, I did not get a very clear answer of email. As it was a quick response but was not very clear and I found it complicated. But once I started, I got a good clear explanation of everything that made me feel very relaxed throughout the trip. It was a breathtaking trip regarding destinations as well. All the time in Las Vegas its desert, night tours, shows, and museums were exceptional in this trip. I have taken one star taken for rooms of improvement.
Local people over there were not that much support as I expected. They were not interested in giving information to any visitor but our tour guide was always there to overcome this issue with his amazing guidance. Environment of the bus was really fascinating. I love making fun in trip and I got many copartners in my bus of same interest. We enjoyed a lot and the beauty of that enjoyment was the music of the bus. It was exactly what I wanted. It was not only inside the bus but outside the bus we enjoyed a lot, clicked pictures and enjoyed the group meals. I simply loved the monument valley and white stand national park visit. I have saved all those lovely memories in my clicks.
Overall the trip was one of the best with exceptional destinations and good services but only slight issues were there regarding accommodations. I was happy with on time pick and drop services of this punctual bus tour that helped in managing time according to the places along with lunch and dining experiences. As I felt that destinations were very exploring that’s why I preferred short meal or junk food to not miss the time and spend more on exploring than experiencing new dishes. It was simply a trip that provided everything what we needed and I found many good convenient options for visitors in this tour.
I am from Belarus. I had a very positive experience of this trip along with my husband. We were amazingly explained about destinations, stops, and other things. As I was also happy that our tour guide knew a bit of the Russian language that was really a fun to hear some words from him. He was a gentleman with helping nature towards all the visitors. We loved the food and experienced some of the new tastes. As my wife was more into food and I was into exploring destinations but we both found it a very balanced trip that satisfied us in an exceptional way. I was simply taken away from the beauties of the Colorado Plateau and Arizona Sonora desert museum.
