I have been part of the bus group from the start of our journey till the very end, thus I am glad t admit the fact that my family and I had a wonderful experience on board. Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth – all collectively were remarkable! Thanks a lot

I knew that we would be traveling a lot on the bus tour therefore, I filled my iPod with songs and movies just so I don’t get bored or anything like that. I have two of colleagues from work with me, they didn’t seem like they were having a great time like I’m having. Cutting to the chase, our hotels were super fine, and the Sundance Square, Alamo Mission, Buckhorn Museum, Bourbon Street at French Quarter were the places we had a quality time. I liked the tour but the not pricing. Cheers!

I think, we could have visited more instead of the battle ships and bold museums, especially San Antonio and French Quarter district, these two sites were the best I found on our trip. However, our travel host provided us with every facility. Decent accommodations throughout the course of the trip.

I admit that our bus tour started out pretty lazy at the start, but as the time past day by day, we started to have even more excitement, not because of the tour team but because of the destinations were kept on getting interesting and interesting, plus our bus guide had been a great throughout the course of our journey who guided us to so many places, and I loved learning the history. Nasa center was the best site that I found this bus tour because there we spent a massive time, and there was a lot to do, and the displays were just mind-blowing. We didn’t have any issues on the bus tour, in fact, it was the best tour experience that I have ever had so far.
