In this long 8-day tour we explored numerous beautiful and amazing places. It was one the the best trip. It’s like touring the world in just 8 days. We visited Lake Powell, Arches National Park, Great Salt Lake and Idaho Falls. Yellowstone National Park was absolutely sensational. Air Force Museum, State Capitol building and Temple Square of Mormon Church are certainly places to visit. I would recommend this tour to all tour enthusiasts.
Traveling by bus for 8 days was a fear for me as I thought there will be lots of back ache and pain. But the seats were comfortable and the bus was clean that I came back after visiting so many places without any sort of complaint. I recommend.
Going on a week’s tour was not expected. Really a fun tour and we had to do nothing except follow the guide. He was a champion and looked really smart. His English was good and he took good care of us.
