 it was fun visiting the Yosemite NP for the first time, it was a majestic experience. I love the bus trip because it had so many great places and decent hotels to stay overnight. We all enjoyed at the Grand Canyon. Thanks!

San Francisco has so much to offer to its visitors and we only get to see the limited places around that city. However, the tour as a whole was, even more, fun with the family members and we took really great photos. Cheers to the great team!!

nothing is more fun than spending time with your family in such an amazing place like Grand Canyon, we had a great time, our accommodation was great, the hotels we stayed at were very clean and comfortable. Antelope Canyon was also amazing along with Yosemite National Park. The tour had a really nice tour guide and the organization was really very good. I really thing this is one of the best tours i had in a really long time.

The best thing in that tour was Grand Canyon Helicopter and Cruise, it was really like a dream for me, Also Grand Canyon Skywalk and Grand Canyon West Rim were amazing. Las Vegas Strip and down town were also great. Our tour guide was a really nice guy and we really enjoyed everything starting from the bus to the hotels we stayed at that were really comfortable and clean.

The best thing i loved about that tour was Grand Canyon West Rim Airplane Tour, it was really magical! also the Grand Canyon Skywalk was really great. I really loved the tour guide as he was an amazing guy, and also our driver was very good driver. Hotels were great, they were not 5 star hotels but they were very clean and comfortable. I just wish admissions and food were included in that package, but other than that i really thing that this company is one of the best companies that i dealt with.
