I am a non-US guy and realized after this trip that USA is a different world inside the Earth Planet itself. Grand Canyon and Los Angeles are just awesome destinations for vacation tour.

The tour itself was alright, the eagle point of the Grand Canyon would definitely be my favorite spot. You see, i did not know we were supposed to pay the entrance fee at the Eagle point and no one even reminded us about that, I had had left my wallet at the hotel. Anyhow, my wife paid the fee, I’m glad she did because the views from the top of Eagle point… I cannot put them in words. I wish our tour guide was more cooperative. Apart from this it was a perfect tour for us.

from the moment we spoke to the customer’s representative at GoldenBus Tours we were certain of one thing, our tour was being planned by professionals and there would be no stones left unturned to ensure we enjoy it. And yes, our expectations were highly met. We were charged $578 per person and in our group of four, my wife, I and our two children, we were able to afford the fun and make the best of our time as well. I never imagined I would be able to spend 6 days touring around LA, visiting Universal Studios, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and much more. GoldenBus Tours, must recommended!

This was a six day trip that took us to innumerable places. The hotel, which was my greatest concern, was great. The guide was quite friendly and he made sure everything was going on as planned. I loved this trip. I have recommended it to a few of my friends.
