Golden Gate Bridge looks even bigger and better by visiting it. San Francisco has been the best city regarding fun activities, good attractions, beaches, and we couldn’t ask more than hill city. Anyways, with the help of a professional operator, we happen to visit so many good landmarks in a single day. Our days were pretty busy, we were basically visiting one place and then continue to another one without wasting a single minute. I just loved the way the tour was delivered. Although, Las Vegas is mainly known for its massive hotels and lights and all the stuff, for the first hotels we checked were busy and consumed and that was nothing like Las Vegas. They always have a room. But the manager checked in us at the Linq Hotel and slept really good throughout the course of eight days on this bus journey. Thanks a lot to the great team!

I have had a heart so much about Route 66 and never got a chance to see what the old America actually looked like. The roadside attractions on Route 66 and kept in their original forms. The tour was a perfect fit for us since they offered exactly the kind of touring service we wanted. However, they were some ups and downs like when we were in Santa Barbara we could have much time to visit top-notch places there. However, on the final days of the tour we returned to Las Vegas, it was a magical city. The fun in Las Vegas is really appealing and they whatever happens in Vegas stays n Vegas, with that motto we happened to have such a wonderful time in Las Vegas. The tour leader mentioned the live shows that were going to be live in the evening, so booked the seats for the comedy show; it brought a delightful ending of the tiring day. Thank you, guys!

I have been excited for this amazing new journey from the day we booked the seats for it online there as just so much to do on this bus tour s and the places was, of course, the best which we had to tour. The tour guides on the bus were nice including the bus driver, who was a great friendly guy. I think it was a perfect tour created for all the vacationers who seek out the decent services with hotels, great stops and decent buses for transportation. The first day of the bus tour was really great as we just wandered around the coasts of California after leaving Los Angeles. The bus tour headed towards the Santa Barbara. It was like the dream come true when we found out that we were going to go visit Santa Barbara. It was a great place but the 17-Mile Drive alone had so many attractions along the wide spreading coasts. On this bus tour, we did a great family photo. We will never forget this bus tour! Thanks a lot for the great services.

To be honest, the bus journey was not much exceptional or some would say it was perfect since the tour lacked in providing us the quality services as they mentioned it but it turned out to be the usual bus tour that we recently experienced from Texas. However, on this journey, we had to reach Los Angeles. The bus tour people drove around Los Angeles first, we went to Santa Barbara, then Yosemite National Park, and so on. The Sedona city is a wonderful place to wander around as tourists; it showcases a history through its amazing architecture, as well as home of various cultures inside the country, However, we really hoped that we could spend more time in the Death Valley region, although we got to see the Death Valley monument, that place had so many wonderful masterpieces of rock and some of them were ranging back to several million years, therefore, it was paradise for a history buff like me. The tour leader helped us all out and asked everyone if anyone needed the tour guide help. They provided us with great hotels, food, and buses.

The tour started out pretty well from Los Angeles. We have never on the bus tours like this before, so the first impression of the bus tour was really great and we just couldn’t wait to hop on the bus and experience the journey already. Somehow, we found the first days of the bus tour really amazing and exciting but then the tour got a little lazy and it seemed like it was never going to end. We have to travel quite far to visit one attraction and then move on another one. It was great to travel because they picked really decent tour buses for us. Mentioning the great fun at Monument Valley, where the tour guide hired a jeep for us to travel across those deserts and visit all the charms of the Monument Valley. The driver was native Indian who told us so much the history and his accentors helped to spread the life and amenities all around the places. All the days we had on the tour turned to be pretty well, we are nothing but thankful!

It was a lovely day in Los Angeles when the board on the tour. We definitely appreciate the amazing service provided by the tour management throughout the course of the bus tour. I was shocked by the tour guides who stayed all the way with us providing us what we were seeking out. That kind of service made me fall in love with this journey although it has some many other reasons to fall in love like the decent destination, hotels, and the people on board with us. I liked this bus tour mostly because of the time spent in the Yosemite National Park. The tour guide led the team towards the Visitors Center from where we got to reach the Upper Falls of Yosemite. Believe me, the views were absolutely breathtaking and amazing for a person like who is exploring this magnificent for the first time. The tour guide gave us all the information about a certain location. It was a great experience with the team, we would definitely like to board on another tour on our next holidays!

Too bad, we couldn’t get to visit Yosemite Park. The management gave us a solid reason for security concerns in winters, the park gets all covered in the snow and some parts of the park are totally restricted for any individual but we still we could have visited that place. Anyways, we had to visit someplace else, the tour bus headed to the Connery Row, where everything was pretty expensive, it was like the most expensive place in this country but the food and the waterfront views were really amazing to explore. We also headed to the Hearst Castle in Sedona. It was really beautiful and we could browse the historical gothic architecture of the building, lad to see that they preserved the building pretty well actually. Later, the Las Vegas made the whole journey so wonderful all of sudden, it was an absolute party inside the casinos and hotels there; the Mirage Fountain Show was really impressive. However, the tour could have been a lot better.

I have always wanted to go to these places but the problem is that i did not find a tour guide in Italian for my family, and i am really happy i came across Golden Bus Tours who were able to provide that service. The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly, and very professional at the same time. both accommodation and transportation are really luxurious. There were also Complimentary breakfasts which was really nice. Yosemite National Park and Antelope Canyon were really amazing. It was really worth it.
