The Tour Guide is very helpful and organized. The driver is good. The hotels are nice and large enough for three persons. The bus ac is cold enough but the bus seats are a little bit small. For the initerary, I think we can reduce the trip ..to five days and skip the train.Read full review

We went on July 26-28th. Nina, the tour guide made the trip more enjoyable - spoke Mandarin and English. She tells funny jokes sometimes too.
Hotels: Red Lion Inn very nice. Days Inn average but has everything. Both have mini frig and ..microwave.
Bus: Our bus was supposedly purchased 2015 so fairly new. Each row of seats has 110v 2 prong outlet (very convenient) but no wifi. There is overhead compartment supported by rubber elastic band (so light stuff only). Heavy luggage under the bus. Each seat also has air vent and light like an airplane - nice to have if you need it. Restroom in back is only for #1 (not #2). There are enough rest stops (almost every 2 - 2 1/2 hours). No drinks in cups allowed due to spills (one person snuck in a cup of coffee and placed it in overhead compartment which then spilled all over someone's backpack).
Food stops: you have options at food stops, lunch is mostly fast food (ie. McDonald's, Subway, Wendy's or shop at supermarket if there is one), both dinners are buffet. Last day lunch option was buffet or many fast food options. Nina ordered special mushroom pork soup for 2nd day asian buffet dinner which was excellent.
Day 1- Walked around 1/2 hour at Beringer Winery in Napa, Drive-Thru Chandelier Tree in Leggett was fun to watch cars trying to get thru. The bus won't fit. Stayed only about 20 minutes so you must be quick taking pictures and shop fast at little gift shop. Grandfather Tree (1800 years old) - about 20 minutes stop. Last stop was Founders Grove - gigantic redwoods, we walked the trail with Nina -very scenic, 45 min. I would have liked 10-15 more minutes to take more pictures.
Day 2 - 1 1/2 drive to Trees of Mystery where we stayed for 1/2 hour for more pictures of Paul Bunyan statue and saw privately owned Indian museum inside gift shop.
Saw movie "RV" on bus. - lunch - rest stop on Rogue River - more pictures of people rafting on river. Finally arrived Crater Lake at about 3:30pm for about 1 hour only. I wish we had more time - maybe 15 more minutes to enjoy the lake. There is nice visitor center and 2 gift shops. The lake is GORGEOUS. We saw DVD on bus - good info on spirit of the mountain.
Day 3 - Left hotel at 6:30am, 1 1/2 hr drive to Vista Point of Mt. Shasta - nice spot to take pictures from afar. We saw Burney Falls informational DVD on bus - stayed at Burney Falls from about 9:45-10:45am. Nice walking trail down to Falls so you can get closer look. Falls is beautiful. Small new & nice visitor center. There's also a gift shop.
For shoppers - no sales tax in Oregon - very nice. If you like to shop, you need to be fast to do both shopping and enjoy the scenery.
Trip went very quickly. Nina is nice and will answer any questions you have.Read full review

I've been on tours with Tours4Fun and this was one of the best tours I've done. Our tour guide Mr. Dale was super friendly and knowledgeable and we had a great time on the tour.
We could have spent probably little more time at Crater Lak..e, but other than that - this was a great tour and I'd always choose Tours4Fun as my first choice for tours!Read full review
