I had a great fun during this trip. Yosemite waterfall was breathtaking. It was an amazing view. Nature was all in all to welcome us. Mojave Desert was another beauty of this trip. Universal Studio tour was a fun; my sister enjoyed its visit and considered it favorite part of her trip. Bus services were on time and we felt so comfortable. The guide was very knowledgeable man and he made us comfortable and we were properly guided about all places. Easily five stars.

What a wonderful tour. I enjoyed visiting such amazing places. I am a nature lover and love to do shopping. My shopping experience at Fashion Outlet was amazing, prices were cheap. I loved the beautiful Yosemite waterfall and saved its memories in my camera. Yes I must say that bus services and guidance was on time and was excellent but the only thing that made me feel a bit awkward was too much of traffic jam. I felt so hectic in this traffic jam but overall experience was satisfactory. Thanks
