Diese Tour kann man nur empfehlen, obwohl man wirklich viel im Bus sitzt. Man sieht sehr viel und die Hotels sind alle ruhig, sauber und haben einen Pool. Leider wird man im Bus mit Maria Carey und James Bond Filmen zugedröhnt. Da helfen auch keine Oropax, so laut laufen diese Clips. Leider, daher ein Punkt Abzug.

This was an excellent tour, highly recommended. Allan was a wonderful and informative tour guide with a good sense of humor as well. The other participants were friendly and respectful. The hotels we stayed at were very comfortable, most had exercise rooms and pools, which were great to have. I traveled with my two children, 20 and 22 years of age, and they both really enjoyed the trip as well. We would definitely go on another tour with TakeTours.

This is one of the best organized tours I have ever traveled. The tour guide Allen is very cool, knowledgeable and made this tour successful and enjoyable. The driver is also the best. The whole tour was planned accurately so that we visited every attraction . Yellowstone is one of the best tourist attractions . I recommend that going by this bus tour would be the most efficient , economical and comfortable than driving all the way. Note : The only thing I found inconvenient was that, most days I had to buy and carry breakfast or lunch the previous day itself. While I could understand that this is to manage the time, it would have been better if they had stopped at a fast food. Thanks.

This was an amazing tour, Our Tour Guide Frankie and Driver Don were informative and helpful. We saw so many places and experienced so much in such a short time. The starts were not as early as first thought and the scenery and friendships made will stay with us for years to come.

I chose this tour to do with my 12 year-old son based on previous reviews, the itinerary, and destinations. We were NOT disappointed! This is an economical tour and as such the restaurants/motels were in line. Note:The Timbers (Denver) and Roadway Inn (Salt Lake City) were sub-par (clean but in severe need of renovations) and the Comfort Inn in Cody didn't have elevators (could be an issue for less mobile folks, or if you have lots of luggage). Enough time in all locations, except Salt Lake City Capitol and Temple Square (only had 25 mins in each--need 45). Everything is in Mandarin/English--movies and music are offered on long rides. Pam our driver was GREAT! Alan was efficient but brusk--a true task master ensuring everyone was on time. Excellent Price/Value--and unless you want to drive, this is a great way to see everything we did!

This was a great tour. The sites chosen were excellent and the tour guide was very considerate of all people on board - not easy given 50 or so people from different countries! The places he chose for meals were excellent and economically priced, so well done! The accommodation was very good 3 of the 5 nights, and basic and clean on the other nights. The itinerary and pace of tour was good as was the time allowed at each site. I would certainly recommend this tour as value for money, and a great time!

I only put 4 stars because there's always room for improvement, even though the tour was awesome! We had used TakeTours before for our trip to Canada, so we sort of knew what to expect. This is certainly not a luxury trip, but you'll get to see a lot in a short period of time. We didn’t get to spend much time at each site, but considering the amount of sites that we saw, time and distance covered, it’s well-justified. There is no fine dining either, but we were OK with the food choices that we were given (Chinese buffets, Mexican restaurants, pizzerias, McDonalds, Wendy, KFC, etc). Our wonderful tour guide Rebeca and John, the driver, were very professional. My husband and I had a great time and would certainly recommend this tour to our friends.

I totally recommend this tour. it was amazing, fantastic and awesome! But I have to say it is improper for some people, who want to take time for stay for each place because this trip has many places to visit, so the time is limited and of course you will feel tired even you did not drive lol.
