I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see everything in a short amount of time. We went thru 6 states in 7 days and saw everything there was to see. I was amazed at the beautiful sites we saw. we missed grand Teton and Jackson because of snow, so I will have to book this trip again! alan was a great tour guide and Rich was the best driver!! I am going to book another trip thru TakeTours because I love to see everything when I go on vacation and this tour delivers...it was a lot of time on the bus, but the places we went to were worth the drive

I recommend this tour!

Posted by: subhash on 2017-08-22

the tour itinerary is very hectic but it covers huge number of attractions that too at a very competitive price hence i highly recommend this tour. we had booked the tour thru TAKE TOURS USA b.communication prior to tour commencement was very poor and till last moment we were worried whether we had taken right decision to join this tour.but once started the tour was fast paced and satisfying. out of the 6 hotels 4 hotels were good but hotel at salt lake city and grand junction were not good at all. the tour guide concentrated and facilitated Chinese speaking tourist and he was less attentive to international (non chinese) tourist but the Captain Driver was amazing with his skills. Although itinerary covers all the main attraction of Yellowstone park it is recommended that they should undertake complete round of Yellowstone park (in this tour i guess they encircle about 60%). overall tour is very good but considering travel time in bus it is recommended that leg space in seating area should be enhanced for comfort.

I recommend this tour!

Our tour guide, Franky, knew a lot about the best stops and views during our tour. He also has a great knowledge of the US history, geography, wild animals, National Parks, and also the world. Our bus driver, the Captain, made our trip very pleasant, safe, and always on time. The schedule is pretty busy, we usually stay busy visiting the places and on the road for about 12-13 hour a day, but it is completely worth because the hotels are great and the places we visited are extremely beautiful. I really recommend this tour if you are very interested in the outdoors and nature, and I am already missing all those places!

Excellent overall. Covered Denver on first day. Red rock amphitheater was great. Wind Cave is average, Mt. Rushmore and ice cream is very good. Bad land and Devils tower views excellent. Yellowstone and grand Teton is the best. Don't drop out at salt lake continue for Arches National Park and Vail on the last day you will not regret. Bads:- Too much travel, some days no breakfast in hotels, Bear county and Mamonth Springs not covered though included in the package. Diana the tour guide and Bruce the Bus driver really deserves to be complimented
