It was absolutely wonderful experiencing the journey out in the California and Utah. There was just so many things to do like exploring the landmarks, hiking up those trails at Yellowstone, and the food was just OK and the food also cost us a lot since the eateries out at the tourist landmarks are expensive. Speaking on behalf of my family who also happens to board this tour with me, they also enjoyed but they felt kind of exhausted since it requires a massive energy to fully enjoy the vacations abroad. I’m nothing but grateful!
We decided to travel to LA by road and stopped at the many places on our own, we reached around the evening at LA where we joined the tour. The travel people just checked-in us at a hotel because our journey was going to begin the very next day. I like how the management treats their customers; very nicely with a friendly attitude. The best place we experienced were the Grand Canyons and the Disneyland, of course, the Yellowstone Park Tour was great, and the gushing geysers were just fascinating to see. This is the best bus tour that I have experienced with respect to destinations and travel services. I’d highly recommend to families and friends! Well-delivered!.
In my opinion this was one of the best travel agencies i have dealt with, The tour was really very well organized, there was no delay, and we moved exactly on time. Our bus was really comfortable, and though there was no bathroom we stopped every while for break, also our driver was very skilled, he really made us feel safe on the bus, which was extremely important to us since we had a small children with us. Hotels were really cozy and we were really happy to spend a whole night in Yellowstone.
I would really like to thank my friend who had referred me to Golden Bus Tours, I had many tours with different agencies before, But really Golden Bus Tours is by far one of the best agencies i have dealt with, very organized and their customer service is excellent. I would also like to thank the tour guide who was really helpful guy and he was very professional and well educated. i was really happy about that package
That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included and there were mandatory admissions for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Other than that it was amazing! very well organized and the accommodation were really comfortable and clean. we saw some amazing places like Yellowstone National Park,Yellowstone Canyon, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson, Utah State Capitol, Temple Square, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon West Rim. I would really recommend that tour to anyone who wants a decent package
What an amazing time we had in those 7 days. We really enjoyed every part about that tour. First we were picked up from the airport by our tour guide. We also loved our tour guide , this guy was very helpful and nice to every one. We saw some amazing places like Yellowstone National Park, and the amazing Grand Canyon Skywalk . We also loved Chocolate Factory but the most amazing thing we saw for real was Hollywood Universal Studios Tour. It was really a great package.
We really needed some time off, and i am really glad we chose that tour, it really worth it. Our tour guide was a very helpful guy. This was our first time to visit the grand canyon, it was really an amazing place, a really world wonder. The next best thing was Yellowstone . The tour had a great accommodation, really clean and cozy hotels. I just wish that there were no mandatory activities like Yellowstone which was great by that way. Golden Bus Tours really did a great job in putting together that 7 day package
