It was one of the best tours for me and my family. The time schedule was finely followed and tour guidance was compact and informative. The helicopter ride over the Canyon just made our day.
We flew to San Francisco and then to different places. It was our honeymoon, a perfect package. We went to the chocolate factory, Las Vegas and many other places that we totally enjoyed. I have recommended this plan to my colleagues.
The tour was full of joy and zeal; moreover, it was very comfortable and luxurious. The transportation service and the air conditioning were perfect all along the way and we never felt a hint of disorganization.
A six day trip went on perfectly well with an amazing guide who took us to different spaces patiently. We made many friends throughout. I went with my siblings and we enjoyed most of it. We had a little trouble booking our trip with Golden Bus Tours but everything else went on well. At the hotel we were given amazing food and our rooms were quite comfortable. Loved the package!
