8 days to spend on a vacation may sound about that they are quite a long stretch. But as indeed the attractions we got to discovered on this those eight exciting days were never going to get over my head. Jackson Hole was so fascinating and it just gave me a vibe of the beauty scenic beauty of Switzerland which is my hometown. Arches National Park resides the best rock arches and similar fascinating rock formation that is hard to find anywhere else in the world. Lovely time spent!!
well if you got the energy of exploration around the country, then taking this tour might sound about right. However, they gave us great discounts on the tickets which were pretty appreciable. The next thing is that the places like Mt. Rushmore, Devils Tower, Salt Lake River, and few more were on my visiting list, therefore, I took this deal of tour which was offering the best deals. On our last day, the chocolate factory stop was the best of all. Thank you so much!

Guide and driver are very helpful and friendly. They took care of us comfortably during the travel. It was a great experience. The tour guide was great and she did a great job to arrange the time for all the attractions. Thank you so much, and I will see you for the next trip.
By the way, they also provided complementary breakfast with decent food. All in all, this company provided good service. But, be prepared that you might meet some other people in the same tour group who may sodcast their music on the bus.( sodcast=play music through mobile phone speaker ). I was surprised to find nobody complained about that. Other than that, all is well.
My husband and I just hated the whole idea of driving for 14 hours and that\'s why we decided on a group tour, to sit back and just relax. The experience is actually awesome. It is not a super packed tour and we had plenty of time at each of the tour locations. We really Hotels for the West Coast eight-days trip.
The trip was very well planned. We got to see several attractions. Yellowstone National Park is very scenic. Las Vegas was very interesting. Everybody followed the schedule strictly, which worked out for the best for all of us. They did stop at malls where we found variety of restaurants like Burger King, Wendy\'s, Pizza Hut, etc. Food was not a problem speaking as a vegetarian. The accommodation was very comfortable. Overall, it was a very eventful trip.
This tour was great. Tour Guide was a great tour guide and she was very accommodating and nice. There were lot of stops with spectacular views, and accommodation at Bangor was very nice. People were very warm and everyone was punctual, and overall it was a great experience. Highly recommend this tour!
We had a very good time, guide explained everything before reaching to a place which helped us connect to all the places we visited as part of the tour. Itinerary was very well planned and we were able to visit all places with ample time to spend there. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
