The places are really amazing !!! But too much wasted time in the bus, to transfer people to other groups or to go to some uninteresting places like barstow outlet !! One of our guide didn't give us any information about Grand Canyon !

 

Posted by: Reginald on 2010-10-30

We found the bus comfortable, the sightseeing tours excellent, the hotels very good and the guides very knowledgeable. Very good value for the money paid.

No doubt. This tour is great for the money. The guide is well versed and the talk about American history was very good, anyone that is new to America can understand the particular sightseeing with full knowledge. I can only say THANKS. Can you send the details of other tours by mail to us so that we can continue to use gotobus.com tours?
