I think the six days of the tour were great but also they could be even better. We spend a few more than enough time at some of the destinations that don’t deserve time to be spent on them. On our day 4, they let us explore the Vegas city on our own. It was the most terrible thing for me in the whole tour, but anyways, the canyon, outlet shopping destinations were great including the hotels.Grand Canyon and Ethel m chocolate center were the best. Including the luxurious hotels, the six days of travel were amazing. Thank you.
When I started discussing options for tour companies I was glad that the representative I met at GoldenBusTours was very resourceful and friendly. He guided me through the tour booking process with ease while listening carefully to me. He designed an itinerary for me that was just perfect and cost $428.00 per person. My children wanted to see Disney Land and that’s exactly what they got along with a lot of other sites as well. Everything was very carefully planned and well executed. I’d recommend GoldenBusTours to everybody looking for a great trip to Los Angeles.
The breathtaking views, spectacular sightseeing, eye-grabbing scenes and adorable locations. I have no more words to praise Hoover Dam and Canyon. I think nature has focused more while creating these places.
My children are teens and they have vacation. I had booked these tickets and they said it was fun. Their broad smiles gave me the satisfaction that they both enjoyed. The tour operator gave good rooms to stay and ensured they were comfortable, I recommend.
Good trip. A fantastic tour to go by bus and no worries for all the 6 days. Everything was in the charge of the operator. The guide and the driver ensured we enjoyed the tour and there was no regret, will go for more tours.
