I picked this long tour of 8 days with my husband and three kids. The beauty of every destination is worth mentioning but here I will go with the exceptional memories of places like Colorado Plateau, White Sands National Park, and Carlsbad Cavern National Park. It was a long trip of 8 days and I found it not that much expensive in many aspects. In this cashless society. I found good accommodations that made this trip even more relaxed. The bus was air conditioned and my kids were very okay because of the cool inner environment of the bus. I also found our guide and driver very supportive. Thanks

Its destinations and itinerary for 8 days was enough to make me feel happy and predict about this tour that I am going to have the best moments in this tour. For a person like me itinerary is very much important because it clears many things and I found this itinerary so perfect with a perfect description and timing of all to be visited destinations. I enjoyed every single day but a visit to West Rim of Grand Canyon and city tours in Phoenix are the exceptional memories in it. Thanks

This tour was recommended by the clerk of my hotel. He recommended it because of its proper and accurate timing and affordable price as well. I picked this tour and found that team of this tour was so professional in real sense. Driver and guide seemed to be skilled man and informative professionals as well. I was alone traveling in this long trip but was a bit concerned about my safety. I was so happy that they took some extra steps to ensure my safety. This was the sweetest gesture from their side. I have no reason for 4 stars and certainly this bus tour and its team deserves 5 stars for the remarkable services. Another thing which I want to recommend here after booking make it sure that you have Dean and Alex as your tour driver and tour guide. This confirmation is very important to have a same safe and lovely experience as I had. Thanks!!

I joined this tour along with my two sisters. We were so excited to visit all the destinations like Eagle Point Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Colorado Plateau in the itinerary and honestly it was a fantastic long trip where all destinations were enjoyed with enough timing with lots of fun. We were welcomed and got picked up from the airport. I noticed in this tour that driver and guide both knew their job very well. The guide was guiding in right way and was allowing us then to enjoy as well on our own. He was not too much talkative but was so balanced in his presentations. Talking about a driver is like talking about man of energy who was of crown attraction inside the bus. I must say that he had great sense of humor and his jokes entertained all of us. I enjoyed the meals as well and found an overall interesting and decent trip. Big thanks to all those who put their efforts to entertain all the visitors of this bus tour. Picking up from airport and then providing accommodation options is a very safe style of this bus tour for all the visitors who are not natives. Good job!!! Thanks a lot

There was a huge list of many destinations which we covered in these 8 days. We were a group of 5 friends who joined this trip. Every single friend was very much excited about all the destinations and we liked more or less all the destinations. I personally had a good time at places like monument Valley and Hoover Dam. Big thanks to the bus team for their information about all amazing destinations and arranging good stops to enjoy our meals.

A very balanced and organized trip of 8 day was enjoyed by me and my parents. There was fun, care, beauty of destinations, good eating options, friendly weather and an amazing team. Stops were managed wisely in accordance with the timing of lunch and it was a really comfortable trip for parents as well, not only youngsters. We literally covered many destinations in this 8 day trip that I do consider it of the best tour of my life. I liked all destinations. Thanks
