The tour was really cool ans you get to see alot of places within 6 days. Therfore the busrides are pretty long but it's ok. The only thing I didn't like was the last day in a ski village becuase it was already off season so we couldn't do ..the normal program that is written down.Read full review

The trip met our expectations. If you want to see the scenery without having to drive or make any travel arrangements, this is the best option. The accommodations were not 5 star but were clean and comfortable. The tour guide Frank and t..he bus driver Pam were exceptional. We always knew the agenda and they worked hard to let us see all we could in the time available. If you select this tour, be prepared to encounter a number of different ethnic backgrounds and the different behaviors they exhibit. We put our feelings on the back burner and did not let this issue mar the tour in anyway.Read full review
If you like the contrast between majestic mountains and the barren red rocks, this is a must-see tour. In a short duration of 6 days and 5 nights, the tour takes you through five of America's most beautiful mountain states from Colorado to ..South Dakota, to Wyoming, to Dakota, to Utah, and back to Colorado. You will visit the men-made wonder of Mount Rushmore and the nature spectacular of Devil's Tower. You will be exposed to the mystical geothermal activities of Yellowstone and majestic Grand Teton Mountain range. Finally you will see the unforgettable red rock arches contrasting with the seemingly barren Great Salt Lake. in addition to these major attractions, the various side trips to Dever's Red Rock Amphitheater, Jackson Hole, the international skiing village of Vail, and the Rocky Mountain high point of Johnson Tunnel, are experiences that you will not easily forget.- and most importantly, all these at a very reasonable price.
The accommodation were not luxurious but comfortable. The bilingual (English & Chinese) tour guide was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable, and the driver was skillful and safety conscious. The coach bus was new and comfortable. Unfortunately there were a couple seats whose reclining mechanism of which did not work properly. Having to sit in that position for an extended period of time made it rather uncomfortable. Hopefully they will be repaired soon. Also, the back of each seat does not provide a "pocket" for passenger to put things in it - seems to be a design oversight.
Overall, I would say this tour is great value for any nature lovers who want to enjoy the best of what America's mountain states have to offer on a budget that will not break ones bank accounts, and yet at a reasonably comfortable mode of transportation and accommodation. I would recommend this highly.Read full review

Meets and exceeds all that is stated in the itinerary. The guide, Mr. Chen is very knowledgeable and explained to us clearly about each sight seeing place we are visiting. Thanks to the driver and Mr. Chen, we have a safe and joyous vacatio..n.
Would like to try the winter Yellow Stone package in future..Read full review
The trip was very good, covered a lot of places in a short span of time. Be prepared for long bus rides and early morning departures though. The itinerary for this trip was really great. Beautiful and amazing places. Well organized except o..n the last day when going back to LA from Las Vegas. It was chaotic. People transferring from one bus to another including the baggages without clear instructions from the guide. The only drawback for the trip. By the way, the tour guides and drivers will not be the same for the whole trip. We had four (4) different guides and drivers for this 8 day trip. Overall, It was a memorable trip...Read full review
Overall this tour was AMAZING! The driving was well spaced out and all or the stops were well thought out! Of course we'd wished we'd had more time to explore in certain places but that was to be expected. With that said there is no way we ..would have saw what we saw in six days if we did this alone!! We passed some cool western towns we wish we could have stopped at but had plenty of opportunities to stop at a few cute places including Cody and West Yellowstone. Those stops were some of our highlights. My BIGGEST recommendation to take the most advantage of each stop is to explore. We pushed out time limits everywhere we went to make the most of it all. We ventured off to find cute restaurants, cafes and shops. The hotels were generally fine with the exception of two. They were a bit old and a little musty smelling but it didn't bother us. You really need to be flexible and adaptable in that sense. I would recommend this tour to anyone and take another one! PS, Rebecca, our tour guide was AMAZING!!!! PPS, the views from the bus and driving were spectacular too! Amazing routes!Read full review
Wildfires in Yellowstone forced us to change the agenda, but Frank Chen adjusted our itinerary so everybody had a great adventure. One motel room had AC & shower issues, the rest were excellent. We will probably join another tour.
The guide and bus driver were awesome. The hotels were great and the scenery absolutely outstanding. I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to see all of these sites in a short amount of time.
