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
I would like to thank Tours4Funl, especially thank to tour guide Eric Chen in our family trip to Las Vegas. Eric provided us the best guidance for 3 days LV tour with bilingual guidance for both authentic American accent and Mandarin. Also ..thanks to Ming, our 3-day San Francisco tours. Although feel a bit long trip to San Francisco, but overall it is excellent. Our family enjoyed it. Highly recommend. Also I would suggest that the 3 hours shopping times for las Vegas last day trip to palm spring outlet, seems too short, please consider a bit longer. I.e 5 hours. Also please consider to remove the overlapping tour components(I.e. Hollywood walk of games) for (1) LA city tour and (2) Universal Studio full day tour, to be more focus and flexible. Hope we come back to US in the near future for another trip with tours4fun. Richard from Sydney AustraliaRead 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

This trek was absolutely amazing! We got ucky that we had such a great group of people, we all got on together and I now have friends for life.
Out tour guide Craig was outstanding and definitely went out of his way to make this experience.. special for everyone, as in he accommodated different activities by giving tips/ advice etc.
It was the best 2 weeks of my life and has made Me want to keep on travelling.
Would highly recommend. Food was excellent, transport and the tents we slept in were so clean. Couldn't ask for anything else.
Everywhere we went there was a new high, LA was meeting everyone, San Diego was the comedy piano bar, Lake Havasu was camping under the stars, Grand Canyon was watching the sunset while eating pizza, Las Vegas was the Calvin Harris pool party, Yosemite was the most amazing hikes and climbing the rocks and the smell, it smelled so good, San Francisco was the whole city and alcatraz and Santa Barbara was the views! So much love and appreciation for this whole experience. Read full review
From the beginning on I knew we would have a great time together! Our leader Dano was from the area and knew where to go to get a full experience in the cities.
We chilled on sunny beaches, slept under the stars, swam the Colorado river,.. hiked the Grand Canyon and Yosemite, partied in Vegas and San Francisco. I could go on for hours telling what we did. It was amazing!
In San Francisco we got a tour by Urban Adventures, which was very well organized and the guide was a helpful and clear guy that showed us around chinatown, little italy and the nort beach area.
The group was great, we got to know each other very fast and forged some friendships for the rest of our lives!
Despite not being able Death Valley due to extreme heath, I still think I've visited all the highlights on the West Coast.
Certainly looking forward to booking my next trek!Read full review

100% A GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY TOUR

As a traveller for over 40 years and a participant of just about every reputable tour company, I would definitely recommend this tour company to those who like to stretch their dollar BUT still maintain a very pleasurable trip. No tour comp..any in the world can package a deal that is perfect for the entire tour group and it would be totally unrealistic to demand for services the would hurt the bottom line of the tour company. This company has come a long way to provide a fair and well planned package deal albeit the many unfair comments that littered their website.Read full review
The entire trip was an amazing adventure! Everything from making smore's around the campfire to hiking the Grand Canyon, everything was very well planned, and our tour guide made sure everyone was having a blast! I am so glad that I decided.. to do this trip, and it was much better and I could ever have imagined :-) We were nine people on my trip from all over the world, and everyone was so nice and made the trip even better!!Read full review
