Mariel(1)Useful01/07/2016Great Winter/NYE Trip ( Verified Purchased )
This was my 3rd time taking a trip with Tours4Fun. We took this trip during NYE. Be prepared to deal with cold weather. Our itinerary changed due to this fact. We went to Yosemite first rather than last. Also, bring a neck pillow for the lo...ng trip. Our tour guide, Gary was awesome! Although he may have talked a lot, he knew his history and translated Chinese to English very well. Our driver Henry was a good driver and nice guy. We had trouble with our snow chains but he knew exactly what to do. Gary & Henry worked really well together, communicated and gave each other tips on how to travel best through the weather. We were on-time for our events/locations. One thing I would change is the stop to Fresno. I think we can pick a better location to stop at. It was not the best location because it was a run-down mall and can be unsafe. I also would prefer that our stay at Merced (Ramada Hotel) would be at a better location because there aren't enough places to eat at and also was scary to walk at night. Everything closed at 9pm. We had to order Domino's pizza to deliver at our hotel. The next day we went to San Francisco, Monterey and stayed at San Jose/Milpitas (Crowne Plaza). That was a very nice hotel and across asian markets. There was a shuttle that could take you to nearby locations like Walmart (open 24 hours). We celebrated NYE here and it was not the original plan because we were supposed to be at Yosemite but it was nice seeing the fireworks from our hotel room. The staff was really nice and accomodating there. The third day we headed to Lake Tahoe and Reno. We didn't do the boat tour because it was $55/person. There wasn't much to do when you are waiting but there was a gift shop and restaurant, so I suggest bring something to do to be occupied. At Reno we stayed at the Sands Casino which is nearby & walkable to the Reno Arch (hotspot for photos). We were able to walk around and felt safe. Everything was nearby to visit other casinos and we recommend eating at the El Dorado's Prime Rib Restaurant. It is a dying town but everyone was nice and easy to get around. The last day we headed home and stopped at Sacramento. It was a short trip but we had enough time to tour the inside of the capitol building. You go through security check/metal detectors but it was reasonable. It was a long drive home but we took at least 4 stops to use the restroom and stop for lunch. Overall, it was an enjoyable trip and was a good way to visit up north in a short amount of time. Read full review

I thoroughly enjoyed myself on this tour- I never knew that this part of the world had so much to offer tourists! I was impressed with the beauty of the scenic drive from Pacific Grove to Carmel and Del Monte Forest lived up to its name. Fr...emont was a small city but it offered some good dining. My wife wished there had been more time to shop on the first day. San Francisco was everything I had heard about it, a vibrant city with lots to see and do. Our favourite part was seeing the Golden Gate Bridge in person. We are avid gamblers and enjoyed being in Reno but we were unlucky at the slots- maybe next year! Lake Tahoe had some spectacular scenery. We decided to go for the Lake Tahoe Cruise and it was fantastic! Sequoia National Park was also very beautiful and we took some fabulous pictures for our album. I would recommend this tour for anyone who loves getting away from it all for a few days.

Bob Pacheco(30)Useful02/25/2008You won't miss it!! ( Verified Purchased )
I think all of the destinations in this tour are fine, but the 17 miles is special to me. This is a very pretty stretch of 17 miles - you can see the best of the West coast here. It is worth spending a couple of hours, or a day. Very neat, ...great views. I'm so lucky to watching the sea lions diving for their lunch and then holding the rock, breaking the clam open and eating it while lying on their backs. I loved it. Go farther up to the Pacific heights coast line and see what Shangri-La at the beach really looks like. You won't miss it!! Read full review
Jim(29)Useful09/06/2007Amazing shopping experience!! ( Verified Purchased )
We all like Lake Tahoe. The scenery was really incredible, between the water and the giant trees. I had the opportunity to pose for a picture beside a huge Redwood tree that made me look absolutely tiny by comparison. There have some of the... most wonderful and expensive shops and galleries I have ever visited. We bought some exquisite sculptures and beautiful wildlife paintings. Read full review
