It was compulsory for us to pay the additional charges to the majority of the destinations on this bus tour. We thought that I would be handled by our travel company. It turned out that the bus people only charge for the bus traveling, and other than that, we are on own with the hotels and places. Although, the places we get to tour on this bus tour were quite amazing, mentioning the Yellowstone National Park where we spent almost two days straight, and we loved that. My kids had a wonderful time on board, but the destinations on this bus tour were quite far from each other, thus we had to travel a lot in the precious time of our day. Anyways, the tour went pretty well, more importantly, we adored our time.
At the beginning of the journey, we weren’t sure that we are ever going to have fun on our holidays or not. As the days went by, the tour started getting fascinating as we wandered around the great sites such as the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas was the best stop on this tour. Despite all the great places and hotels, I would like to admire the honest efforts of our travel guide, Marilyn, who stick along all the passengers on board and provided us with his great knowledge about the places. I think it’s one of the best tour experience that I have ever had with my family especially on the bus tour. We just wanted to spend more time in San Francisco but too bad we only had one day for that. Good days!
