I recommend this tour!

Posted by: Shirley on 2014-10-06

Itinerary is good but do not expect much on the tour guide, accommodation, transportation for the price you pay because they match the price (in my opinion). I like that this tour stopped at places where you can pick which restaurant/fast food places to eat (instead of forcing you to eat many meals of Chinese buffets). Grocery shopping at grocery stores is also available at some stops. Going to Yosemite in Autumn is a waste of time because the waterfalls are dried (i.e. no waterfalls).
