I am going on the bus tour for the first time with my friends. Of course going with friends is never less enjoyable. All the places, right from Gran Canyon to Disney, overnight tour to rides, everything was great. One of the disappointments for me was on the 7th day of this tour as I started feeling nausea. I could not manage bus traveling as I felt the bus sickness. This was bothering me from day1 and now in the last two days, I somehow pulled myself. The tour operator was very helpful. I will like to go on this tour without any of my health complaints.

The 8 day tour was a long standing plan. One of my friends recommended this plan and so we as a family went on this tour. It was worth this long wait. We visited so many places and my children were happy with Disney tour, besides others. We took to option C as there were many thrilling rides. I am scared, but with family it was all fun. All the hotels for accommodation was done decently and no complaints. The bus tour operator had done a perfect organized tour that he covered all the important points. This tour is worth spending for 8 days and to say you saw America.
