Recently had a chance of going to this 8 day tour of San Francisco-Arizona Sunshine-Two Theme Parks. I personally recommend everybody to go for this tour as the overall touring services were fantastic and the tour guide was exceptional. It was a very different and a unique tour. I really like the itinerary and the way they planned everything throughout the tour.The overall customer service was superb and everything was delivered as promised.

I came from India with family. The trip was good and comfortable. It was required for us to pay the additional charges to most of the places on this tour that is not handled by tour company. We explored many places in eight days. Tour guide gave us productive information about every place. Hotel stay was comfortable. Sometimes food was not according to our taste. Overall the trip was amazing and we had a great time. thanks

We started the tour from San Francisco. First they let us have some time in the area to visit the places like the fisherman wharf, and from there we also board a cruise, and the cruise really helped us a lot to find out the grand attractions of the region such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, although we couldn’t just dismiss the cruise and go on the island to explore it, therefore we just got closer to it and took some great photos. One thing I would like to add is that the tour was even perfect when we experienced the cruise and I wondered if they have more cruises on the tour. Despite traveling far distanced or from city to city, they should let us have the cruises or some similar sort of experiences, because everyone on board with us, was looking for fun, adventure. so much love from Tennessee!

We were totally shocked by the amazing services provided by the tour management. Without exaggerating, I would like to thank the management for all the appropriate efforts in making our bus tour so wonderful. I wasn’t sure at the beginning of the tour that they provide us with great facilities for the tourists, from online tour booking to our drop-off facility, we loved and enjoyed every inch of the tour. Although some might say that the tour is pretty extensive and somewhat a lengthy, which is in fact not false that this the tour was pretty long, we enjoyed every second on this bus tour. However, Yellowstone Park was amazingly beautiful and if it didn’t rain that day, the park would look more amazing and we could go further ahead to visit all those great attractions. The tour was amazing and now that my kids are coming back to San Francisco, we will definitely try board the tour with our complete family. Thanks a lot!

Before starting the trip, I was having so many doubts because it was my first experience for such a long trip with my family (especially kids). It was a no doubt good experience. We enjoyed amazing places and beautiful sights. The bus driver was a trained, experienced man, George was our guide, we spent a good time with him, he is a soft-spoken and helpful. We tried different kinds of food and shop as well. In the end, I suggest improving the accommodation. Highly recommended.

I can’t explain the amount of fun we had, especially the Yosemite and Yellowstone were the best destinations on this bus tour that we found exceptional. The reason for admiring our stops at the Yellowstone and Yosemite Parks is primarily the number of activities and places to visit, those parks are huge and with the help of this amazing bus tour, we were able to explore the top-notch attractions there. The Grand Prismatic Spring looked so usual in the images, but as we toured it, we could feel the heat coming from the ground, and the color combination of the waters on the surface just made the location look even more wonderful and also unique. I have never been to the Yellowstone National Park and neither I knew that the park has some of the world’s finest hot springs and geysers all in one place. My kids and I had a wonderful time on this bus tours and thanks for dropping us off at the Salt Lake City airport, it was a perfect bus tour.

Antelope Canyon looked the same as we last visited it by the end of the year 2016. This year in May, we took exactly this bus tour which took us to the good places in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and we also visited the two most popular and largest parks; Yellowstone NP and Yosemite Np. Although, the tour guide was always with us providing us the best routes and the mentioning the history of the places we were touring. It’s always nice to have an extra hand to make the vacations more luxurious and legitimate. My wife totally enjoyed the bus tour, according to the experience my wife and I had, no one could ever dislike or not enjoy this bus tour because those places were amazing. We had all the time in the world to explore the Yosemite National Park, and the tour guide led the passengers to the Yosemite Falls which is said to be the tallest waterfall in the State. Thanks a lot for making this bus tour so wonderful for me and my wife.

It was a pleasant morning in San Francisco when we hopped on the buses to go on this little adventure. The tour on the very first day, my friends and I got a little lazy while sitting around and doing nothing all day at the airport hotels where the tour guide checked us in. While my friends were looking forward to sneaking out from the hotels and get in the center of lively fun in San Francisco downtown. My fellows decided not to go out on the first, rather spend our first day in the hotel rooms because we had the entire day ahead of us in which we don’t have to anything but to explore the top places in the city, back and forth. I liked how the delivery was executed and the tour persons stayed with us to provide us what we wanted. The other great day we had was at the Yellowstone National Park, first, we explored the mountain of Great Smoky and then we entered the Yellowstone. It was a great tour with exciting stops. Cheers.

It was already the end of the summer holidays, therefore, my parents and my siblings decided to do something unusual and more fun to make the remaining holidays. My father came up with the idea of taking a far distanced tour, but then many things come along while taking longs tours, so we decided to book the online bus tour seats and go on this fun tour. Taking this bus tour seemed like the only and fitting options we could have because by taking this tour we were able to explore so many places without even worrying for hotels, food tour destinations, and so many other stuff. The tour was really a long one, but we thoroughly enjoyed and had a wonderful time. There were just a few things like we forgot to bring the walking shoes, so we bought them for all from while on the way to Las Vegas, the Fashion Outlet had so many other stuff on sale as well. Good days!
