The theme park visit was the biggest attraction and also the national park tour that we took our children and they also enjoyed a lot. We were not disturbed at all and they were taken good care by the guide. Only on the last night, the hotel stay was less than average.

This one week trip to so many places gave us a big relief as it also included theme park and Yosemite national park visit. Our kids were happy and were we happy. A nice guide and a good driver!

I decided to take a tour with Golden bus tours and it was a long 8 days tour. I can tell from my experience that this company is best when it comes to providing best tourist services. It was a pleasant trip. We enjoyed the view of places like Nimbus fish hatchery, Napa Valley, Stanford University, Silicon Valley, San Francisco City Tour, Yosemite National Park and theme parks. Definitely Recommended!
