I just got back from this long trip and my family really enjoyed this tour. Tour guide Peter is very friendly and knowledgeable on destinations and speak perfect English and Mandarin. Driver Benny is also a very safe driver. So Peter and Benny make a perfect team as a tour guide and bus driver. I highly recommend this trip to anyone considering Yellowstone and Mt.Rushmore visits.

Our first tour from www.takeTours.com . I am very satisfied with the overall tour. 1. We were the only English speaking traveller in our 12 Passenger bus. Our guide Jacob narrated everything in English first, then in Chinese language for every stops, every location. 100% great job by Jacob and Bruice (we were with Burice one day). 2. Bathroom break in every two hours or as needed. So no tension was there. 3. Hotel: I did not expect more than 3% hotel. so it was ok. thus get 4 star rating. 4. Food. Choice of food stops, like McD, KFC or other American brands and occasionally chinese along side of American Brands. It was our choice what we ate based on locations. McD will be your best friend in this trip. 5. Grocery stops: Amazingly there were grocery stop within the tour for your need.

We had a lot of fun !! Driver William did a very good job of taking us to all the places safely. It could be a bit better if they told us which hotels we will be staying at in advance and the restaurant choices. Some of the hotels exceeded our expectation, some were so so. Understand that choices could be limited due to season and location. Definitely a good value for the money. Would go on another tour in the future should the chance comes up.

We saw a lot on this trip. Our tour guide, Jay, and bus driver, Alex, were exceptionally good. The hotels were good and the bathroom/food stops were at good intervals. Jay made an effort to get us good quality food at good prices. The places visited - Crazy Horse, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone etc. were great. The only drawback to this trip is the distance. We were on the bus for many hours. I suppose to go this many miles in only seven days and see so many things, that is inevitable.

I recommend this tour!

Good tour on comfortable bus. Appreciated having an electrical outlet near seat for recharging electronics. Timely bathroom stops. Lodging near stores and restaurants. Movies shown during the bus ride. The trip would have been EXCELLENT if the bus had WiFi. Would have liked to have known the exact lodging BEFORE the trip; contacted company, who didn't know.

I liked to join the tour. The price was affordable. For $558, I went to many places. The tour guide was also nice and had a lot of knowledge about the US history and the visiting places. I highly recommend those who want to go to Yellowstone and Rushmore to join this tour.
