I was not only impressed by amazing destinations but also by the services of this bus tour. Every day was full of excitement and fun. Different activities were also a part of this tour. On our stops, we enjoyed a lot our meals and drinks as well. Phoenix and museum experience was really incredible. Outlets were fabulous. I loved the guidance of the guide and my brother was very impressed by this guidance as it was a way of being professional and excellent way enjoying destinations and meeting new people. Thanks a lot to make my trip memorable.
Bus tours are surly a social platform to experience amazing cultures. I loved exploring incredible destinations with different people which was a fun in itself. I had a great experience of Pima Air and Space Museum along with outlets of Las Vegas and a desert hill. I will recommend to all nature lovers. Thanks
Big thanks to an accommodating tour and I found that suggested itinerary was very helpful. I personally did not run into any issue during the entire experience of this trip. The experiences of Antelope, Lake Powel, and Albuquerque were jaw-dropping. Thanks ……… Highly recommended.
It can be titled as a well-arranged trip. All the planning turned out likelike clockwork. The priority of the bus tour was the proper deal and on time arrangement of stops and reaching destinations as well. We were eagerly waiting to travel amazing destinations that's why we spent a major portion of time traveling on roads in a bus. This major portion never turned out to be hectic or stressful. It was completely a stress-free, comfortable and well organize trips. Well, I always enjoy long drives that’s why initially I thought maybe it is because of my liking aspect that this trip turned out fascinating for me, but now it was not only liked by me, but my other friends admired it as well, that surely proved that bus tour was so comfortable that everyone became comfortable with it. Bundle of thanks to this bus service from all of my friends and me as well. Definitely deserving 5 stars.
Food was not in that range as I expected as I found less variety in food. Coffee machine at some places was not delivering hot water but Luke warm water that changed the taste of my coffee. There was a variety of junk food but I don’t prefer junk food. The bus driver was very skilled and trained in his profession and that made me feel very relaxed when I experience his smooth way of driving. I am very afraid of high speed and make a special request to him to drive smoothly. He replied in a sweet way that it will be all the way smooth and comfortable. I loved the optimistic response on every step in this tour by tour management. Destinations were really cool with a well maintained standard of accommodations. The entire time in Las Vegas was really full of fun in the form of night tours, shopping and its shows especially the magic show.
