it just never came to my mind that the bus journeys can be this great because I never knew that we could visit places on a bus tour with hotels stays, and everything managed. My son was staying at our places on his vacations then I decided to take him and his mother on this 8-day bus tour to have a good time. Temple Square looks pretty majestic as well as the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park. Quality Inn lodging on our second day was the best.
the major reason for me taking this tour with my family was due to the Grand Canyon. My family and I never visited Grand Canyon and when it comes to top places of America Grand Canyon comes as the most recommend. Thanks for this amazing tour that we finally visited the Jackson Hole, Yellowstone, and many other natural parks of Utah which were really amazing that words couldn’t describe how astounding they were. The hotels were just okay, including the fact the tour service was excellent. Thank you so much!
I was just watching the documentaries on the Zion Park, and similar Utah’s rock formation parks, they just told so much about it. I can’t forget the breathtaking views which we got to explore the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Zion, and Bryce Canyon National Park. Such a wonderful country we live. They were the best natural parks, and the good thing about the tour that it just came right into the budget, neither very expensive neither very inexpensive. Good experience!
when they drove us to the Monument valley it almost had me breathless because of those catchy humongous historic rock towers. Antelope Canyon was also fun but it wasn’t that fun as the Grand Canyon is, because we happened to board their helicopter which was terrific. The lodging at the Vegas city wasn’t good for me because there were fireworks going all night and didn’t let me have a good night sleep. My husband and I were thinking to maybe take a maybe short tour of just a couple of days and not of eight days because that’s just too much time spend on a vacation. The tour was good and I appreciate the efforts of making it a perfect journey.

Our family enjoyed this tour very much! Tour Guide took great care of us and assured we never waited in a line for the attractions. The driver kept us safe while driving. The tour was great and our tour guide was excellent as well as the bus driver. They were very friendly and helpful. I hope we have more choices when it comes to food. Overall, is a great experience for my family.
Very well organised tour. The tour was nice. The tour guide was very good and very cooperative. There was no lag, everything was on time. A lot of places were covered in this eight days. The Hotel stay was not great but a decent one for the nights stay. I recommend this tour to others.
