it was lovely seeing all the places that I have never even wished to visit. Arizona and Utah state has the best natural parks in the country, and that is for sure since the Arches National Park was so wonderful and it questions our imagination. We also loved the Lake Powell cruising. It was a great tour with the professional team. Wonderful experience!
It was easy booking our tour seats and boarding the trip for Phoenix. I loved how they treated their guests on board, especially the hotels were excellent. Our destinations were far-distanced, therefore, we had to travel a lot, like 4 hours’ drive pay a visit of 1 hour to a certain destination. But, it was all worth it. Cheers.
