I remember the time when I booked this six-day tour I was so excited, and thanks to the special 15% off discount I get to save much. We departed from Los Angeles after the dawn. We took a very long drive through the Mojave Desert. However, when we visited the west side of the Grand Canyon; I realized that I took a right step departing on this tour because the Skywalk there made my family had fun and my kids visited there for the first time so it was something special for them. All the places including hoover dam, Pebble beach, Ethel factory of chocolates, Excalibur Casino & Resort were amazing. We had stayed at the Stratosphere Hotel and it is the most recommended economy-class hotel in the city of Las Vegas.
We joined the bus journey from las vegas. I was already there in the city for my job interview, thus my siblings proposed a plan to why not take a tour of six days and go visit the renowned places, as we were already on the summer holidays. I thought I could be able to meet my cousin at stanford university but couldn’t and rather explored the campus which was terrific. Grand canyon skywalk was the best because form there we could see the maximum part of the canyon’s west portion. The most awful experience on this tour I had was the yosemite park on our last day because it started raining so hard and we missed properly browsing that place. Other than that, it went all good and fun.
