I have never taken tours such as this - pleasantly surprised on how efficient it was! The tour guides were an added bonus - very informative context on both Yosemite and Hearst Castle. Highly recommended!
95% Great tour package & tour guide. Food stops and tour bus cleanliness could be better.

Dennis is excellent tour guide, he found alternative to Yosemite park due to inclement weather in Yosemite as well as cooperated to maximum extent in food preferences, adjusting tour itinerary to keep everyone comfortable.
Accomodation/..Hotels for night stays were good and comfortable. The tour bus could be more clean and well ventilated. Since this is no-smoking tour, it would be nice to permit smoking only when away from the tour bus so other tourists don't get disturbed.
Diverse food preferences are hard to meet while in tour with multi-ethnic passengers. Prepare for that. It would be useful to know day wise schedule & itinerary so people with dietary restrictions can plan and shop for food ahead of time (UberEats or buy ready packaged food from tour stops with stores like Target, Safeway).Read full review
Had a great time, well organized. Would have liked to know ahead that we could have added a day to our trip and that we could book a show in Vegas cheaper with tours for fun and maybe a bit more time at Grand Canyon, ran out of time to look.. around at guano point. Tour guide very good, safe drive and overall very happy with tour.Read full review
Mi brother booked this trip and he is more than satisfied with the tour. The guide was really helpful in where to eat and what events to go at night for FREE. You can't find sth like this for an affordable price:)
This bus tour was my very first one. I would recommend it to others in order to get a general overview of a lot of places. We were up every day by 5:30 AM traveling to great locations! Bruce our tour guide was very friendly & knowledgeable ..(walking encyclopedia) and encouraged everybody to be prompt and on time when returning to the bus. Hotels were well worth the money; each one have a different flavor. Got to meet a number of other individuals from China, Peru, Philippines and even America :-) Enjoyed the opportunity to eat at various locations including a number of buffets. Good value for the money and there were no hidden expenses after reading all the information you are provided on the web site.
The only difficulty I had was due to my bad back. I've had a bad back for years - the seats in our bus were designed for smaller occupants and contoured to their body. If you have a bad back and are taller than your typical Asian, you may want to consider trying it out for a shorter trip before moving up to an 8 day tour. Other than that, I would highly recommend this to others. Now I want to go back to Bryce Canyon to explore more on my own! Beautiful country, more people should take advantage of this reputable bus tour company.Read full review
