This almost a week bus tour was a perfect tour package for my wife and I. We reached the San Francisco city on an airplane and from that very next day our fun started. We went to the famous attractions of SF, Los Angeles, and Vegas. Excalibur Hotel in Vegas was the best hotel. The places I liked the most were the Yosemite Park, Grand Canyon, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Excalibur Hotel. Nice tour!

I loved this trip, it was fantastic and I was pleased with all the arrangements. The hotel accommodation was very important and I had heard from many that the tour operators do not get proper accommodations and that kept me worried. Luckily I got the accommodation perfect and have no complains. They looked after well and ensure the guests were not in trouble. Anyone can book with this tour operator, he offers good buses and the guide and the driver are also good they take good care. The Yosemite and the Grand Canyon are a must visit. I give 5 stars.

The bus arrangement was good and they picked and dropped us on time. They did not delay anywhere or in the midway. In fact, they halted in places so that we stretch our legs and also got refreshed. That was very thoughtful of them and both the driver and the guide were so close to the passengers and it appeared they were traveling with us. They never even spoke in high tones that we also felt ashamed to ask anything raising our voice. A very good tour operator having the concern for his clients and business to earn good name and success!

I am really glad that I took my professional camera on this bus tour with myself. At Yosemite National Park, I get to capture some really cool snaps. That night was really fun when we stayed at the Grand Canyon hotel. I still don’t see why people like the cowboy gun shows; they have got old. All the places were nice to explore especially the hotels were excellent.

I believe going on such tours is a fascinating way to energize life. It really takes you into thinking what life is about if we do not see such lovely places, experience the challenges. I loved this trip every bit and wanted to go to these places for a long time. Today it is perfect that I am seeing the places of my choice. These places were stunning beauty that cannot be expressed in words, one has to see it through eyes and mind. I loved the place and did not wish to go, but they could have allotted more time here to spend.
