I always to take the tour just this bus tour because of the top-notch sites it has and the hotels to stay. I have experienced so many bus tours before, but this bus tour made an exception for its luxury and friendly services, especially our stops were truly the best, the Yellowstone Park, Grand Canyon, SLC, Skywalk, and so many other world-class visitor’s attractions. I didn’t realize how great is America until I got to experience the round trip on this bus expedition. I loved how the tour was managed by the tour team!

Our trip was fascinating and included everything that we wanted and expected it to have. Each day flew like a breeze as we kept touring the country, learning, seeing places and getting immersed in the beautiful places around. The tour operator kept a neat schedule and our tour guide was superb, thanks for this guide. He took care of everything and also was really helping nature, besides had a good knowledge that made our experience memorable. Good we made this choice and I would recommend this tour operator and the itinerary 5 star. The travel to accommodation all were thumps up!

as we entered the Antelope Canyon, it was like the totally different place from earth, such a wonderful place to explore. Also, the mentioning the tour we had at the tallest Teton Peaks, after the exploring the Yellowstone Park. The chocolate factory tour on the last of our bus trip just helped us get refreshed; so say it’s the sweetest place on earth and now we know why. Great services provided and the hotels were the best. Loved the tour!

We went on this tour as a surprise tour. The overall quality was good than we could anticipate for. We were worried a bit and also bothered as the pre tour experience was bothersome. We never received the details of the tour properly in the itinerary. As it was a 8 days tour, a clear itinerary details send to us would have been good. But we must mention specially our tour guide was the most perfect person, ready to solve issues, answer queries, offer assistance, brings smile to everyone’s faces. The knowledge he possessed and his communication skills worth appreciation

My family enjoyed the entire duration of the tour; we had so much fun. Our tour guide was amazing. She was just everything a tour guide could be--professional, knowledgeable, fun-loving and efficient. Such a wonderful lady! The coach/bus was clean and comfortable. It was a wonderful experience! The places we\'ve been to will never leave our memory.
