The driver/guide drove about 7-8hours a day that took us to at least 2spots each day, which is very reasonable considering the size of American land. If you add on the tiredness and hassle or risks from self-drive, this tour is absolutely g..reat in value. All hotels are clean and safe. Bring your own food if you have very picky taste. Not many selections on the road. Last, too bad we can never screen participants of the tour but I just think of it as car sharing.Read full review

My wife and I went on the 7 day southwest national parks tour. We had a great time and love the tour. Everyday we got to see a sight more amazing than the last. Our tour guide Mike Brown did an excellent job making sure we were well fed, we..ll taken care of, and made it everywhere we were supposed to. It is worth noting that there is a lot of driving on the trip which is price you pay for visiting so many places in such a short span of time. For those going on the trip we would recommend the optional canyoneering. We went in early October which we thought was a great time to go because it wasn't so hot but it did get quite cold some nights.Read full review
Covers a lot in a short time only if you are up for it. If you want to relax and not spend much time seeing more destinations then this is not for you. This if for you if your time is limited and you want to cover many destinations.
If camping logistics and long driving is a nightmare for you, then you might as well consider these Tours. They specialize on the American Southwest - which I have not been to until last week. Our guide/driver for the 7-day camping trip wa..s Mike, a well-traveled chap who knew a lot of stuff about Utah & Arizona. Trip organization was meticulous, tents were high-end, the van was clean & well-maintained, even the camp food was decent. But best of all, I got to experience a lot of great memories - one of which was tackling the formidable Angel's Landing in Zion National Park. I came on this trip alone but left with newfound friends! Is definitely worth booking a trip with!Read full review

The tour itinerary is great, but on day# 3, we had to hike for almost 4 hours round trip in order to see the "Delicate arch". Only few young people could do it but more than 1/2 could not do it because it's too tough to hike and had to sta..y waiting in the bus for many hours.
The tour guy and the bus drivers are really good, they should receive as: $6 for tour guide and $4 for the bus driver daily.
Over all, this tour was really very good, too many places to see for a very reasonable price.
I love it and continue to book another tours with Tour4fun next year.Read full review
Together with a friend we made the tour for 7 days at Bryce, Zion, Canyonlands, Arches, Monument Valley, etc. To Grand Canyon. Punctuality and responsibility in all activities, beautiful places visited, the freedom to choose between differe..nt alternatives trekking according to the capacity of each person, very good meals and Joel, extremely responsible guide providing entertaining stories when traveling in the van makes this tour something highly recommended. I totally recommend.Read full review
well the west coast didn't disappoint, we started in LA and although the weather was against us for most of the first week we made the most if it. The group was made up of 11 of us. 7 guys and 4 girls and then our tour leader rob.
We had ..amazing hikes in the national parks. Getting to go to Alcatraz was great too.
As a group we all worked well together and we had such a laugh. It was an experience I will never forget and I have defiantly made friends for life.
This trek was great for smaller driving days and spending two days in most of the parks which was defiantly beneficial to, as we could see lots of things.
It was colder than expected especially at night so having a thick sleeping bag was great though we did have Walmart stops to buy more blankets.
My most memorable night was when a storm hit in lake Powell and we had to abandon our tents for the night and sleep in the bunkhouse, it was such a fun and unexpected turn. We had all eaten our steak dinners and were full, then only to go running around in the dark, wind and rain to save our things and tents.
The group were all quite into taking pictures which worked well as now we can remember it forever!!Read full review
This trip truly is the best way to see a good mix of National Parks and cities in western USA. I was slightly worried as I had never been camping before, but it was absolutely fine. You get used to setting up camp, cooking together and how ..everything is packed away really quickly. I went in August/September, bought a sleeping bag from Walmart for $15 and I was never really cold apart from maybe one night. You might want two use sleeping mats however or bring your own! One of the best nights was the campsite in Monument Valley, where we had the most incredible view, not to mention the clearest starry sky and best sunrise I've ever seen!
I would never have been able to visit all the National Parks on my own as easily as I did with Trek America, as everything is just sorted for you. That was one of the best things, as we would arrive somewhere and then our tour leader would explain what the best things to do were, answered any questions and then we were free to explore. Everything was hassle free and was such an easy way to travel. Expect a lot of driving, but it's the only way to cover so many places and we often just fell asleep in the van!
I'm not a very active person and found the hiking challenging but definitely achievable - climbing to the top of Angel's Landing in Zion was such a personal achievement. You can go at your own place and just admire your amazing surroundings. San Francisco and Las Vegas were the best cities and Yosemite's scenery just blew my mind. Also the night spent at the cowboy camp where I did horse riding the next day was a lot of fun too.
My tour leader was just the best at helping us bond as a group and giving us a load of insider information and took care of so much for us. If you want to see both iconic cities and explore National Parks, then book this trip, it will be the best decision you've ever made - you'll see and do much in such a short amount of time.Read full review
