I recommend this tour!

Posted by: Jayemi on 2014-06-23

It was a nice introductory tour for my first time in California and United States, I would recommend this to seasoned travelers who don't mind having different tour guides for every section of the tour. Tour guides are great for Mandarin Chinese speakers, but not as good with English. I do not recommend the San Francisco part of the tour as the itinerary was generally rushed, the wake-up times were difficult especially right after 12+ hours of flying, and switching hotels every night in remote far away locations with no shops nearby. Los Angeles & Las Vegas tours were nice, as you do not line up for theme parks, have preferred seating for shows, and you stay in the same hotels for each city. Next time, I will take my time to visit San Francisco and Yosemite on my own and then go on the rest of the tour.
