Working in an office is tiring as all time we can think of nothing but work and more work. I took a break and got into this 7 day bus tour. This was the best decision in the world. Follow me to this bus tours, I recommend.
It was lovely to visit so many places on this bus trip, a very well organized trip and we see the main sights. I enjoyed a lot in Horseshoe Bend and Zion National Park. It was generally great; I would definitely plan to take another bus tour on our next vacations.
It was long and somehow tiring tour, butit's value a lot. I have seen so many beautiful spots and gain great knowledge about the landscape and the cultures of the societies there. I must say thanks to my guide, he is a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge of the area is amazing. I must suggest accommodation need to improve.
I like Yellowstone a lot. We could spend a night there and had fun in most of the points. We can still choose what to eat though sometimes there were not many choices in each site. The views in each site were wonderful. The accommodations are nice too. I would surely recommend the tour to my friend as the price is reasonable and can visit a lot of place in such a limited time. My sister and i enjoyed a lot.
