I came from India with my wife and three-year-old daughter. The trip was quite long, but it went well. It was amazing to tour all places were beautiful and wonderful. I like San Diego most. They day we spent there was memorable. We enjoyed the best walk there. My wife also bought souvenirs. I am also missing the day we spent onWest Rim of the Grand Canyon, such a beautiful place. Our guide was a knowledgeable, soft spoken and helpful man, we spent a good time with him. Busses were a comfortable and in good condition. The accommodation was fine. Overall the trip was amazing and we had a great time. Thanks.
Loved the whole trip. So much to see and praise. It was my best trip. All places were amazing. I learn lot of new thing and history of different places. We had good hotels throughout the tour. The tour guide was experienced man and his coordination was good. Highly recommended.
We went with our family to the Universal studios and to Disney land as per my childrens wish. WE also loved every bit of the detail at the studios and enjoyed the entire day at Disney land. But, I was not happy as we could not go to San Diego and see the botanical garden, etc. Never mind, this time for the children and so our next tour will be to the options that I missed in this tour. The food choices were good and the hotel accommodation was fair, could have been better. We were happy, but our children became extremely tired.
A fascinating tour and the visit to Las Vegas were like a dream come true. There were so many performances that one night looked insufficient. The tour covered all the highlighted places in San Francisco and the Universal studios. I took a lot of pictures in the studios reflecting movie stages. I was thrilled to get into this tour and was not disappointed in anyway. Everything was taken care of by the tour operator. I enjoyed every bit of the tour right from Day 1 and it was well organized. I am sure; we can never do such a perfect tour organizing by ourselves.
