It is always fun to plan vacation trips with family. My family was willing to take a trip for a 10 day holidays. Spending an enjoyable time with my family is always relish my inner self, however, we took the long 9-day bus tour deal that would take me and my family to Los Angeles, San Francisco and other attractions like Solvang, Grand Canyon etc. I have already recommended this tour to my friends.

This tour service treads the thin line between being value for money and at worst being cheap! I understand it is difficulty in an in increasingly money minded world to be value for money - where all expensive items are better than cheaper ones. You aim to defy this principle and do a good job at it.

The hotels you guys negotiated were great, although far from city, but that does not matter at all. The buses could be slightly better. We had to do with a non-ac bus for a day! The guides are nice but also need to be told that they are doing something kind; so even if the payment is not top end, their behaviour can be - a difficult requisition for the current times!

It\'s the best deal for the money. As experienced travelers, we know! It is the only way we could see and do so much in the given time period. The website very clearly explains all the details of the tour. Tour guide Jason was great! Both he and the bus driver work very very hard.
