Just spent 6.5 days and 7 nights out of the 8 day tour.
Gary was the tour guide for the 1st 6 days. He was very nice, knowledgeable, and experienced. He told stories and instructions both in Mandarin and English, clear and understandable. He managed time very precisely and accurately. Unfortunately, bad luck occurred when the bus could not move after we left Yellowstone Park on the morning of day 5 at Grand Teton. Gary used his accord to settle the whole crude at Jackson Hole where we could have lunch and places to hide from the burning heat. We spent 7 hours at Jackson Hole waiting for our alternate bus. Our bus finally arrived at 6:00PM, which was the time we were suppose to be at Salt Lake City. Surely that made some elderly people more than angry at Gary. However, Gary managed very well and made everybody happy all the way back to Las Vegas. Overall, this tour is worth it. You can travel almost a quarter of the United States territory in just 6 days in the northwestern region. You can enjoy the ride crossing deserts and the Rocky Mountains without the hassles and fears for finding gas stations and food if you drive yourselves. You can see the magnificent arts of Mount Rushmore. You can enjoy the beautiful nature of the Yellowstone Park and the Arches National Park. You will have a breathtaking feeling when you ride the helicopter down and up the Grand Canyon.
One thing I am not happy about is that I joined the tour at Las Vegas and ended my tour at Las Vegas. I spent just 6.5 days and 7 nights but I still have to pay 8 days, no partial credit, plus there is no shuttle service to Las Vegas airport at the end of my tour.
The tour was amazing; being a foreign tourist it would have been impossible for me to see so many places in such a short time at such low costs. Although majority of the passengers, including the tour guide and driver, are Chinese, we didn't have any problem as the guide (Chris) was friendly and tried to explain everything in English, although he wasn't fluent. They maintained time very efficiently, which was necessary for the trip to run smoothly. There was enough time for each of the sites. The bus stopped at travel centers every 2 hours for restroom break and we could buy refreshments. All the hotels were very good, which was a relief after a whole day of travel. Few things to consider before you book and during the trip:
1. The trip can be physically hectic with up to 8 hours of driving each day. You have to wake up at 5:00AM every morning and reach the hotel at 8:00PM.
2. They tend to stop at Chinese buffets for lunch or dinner. But every place there are other options. Don't buy the Las Vegas buffet ticket, it's horrible; you'll have other options there.
3. I wish the Crazy Horse Memorial, which cost an additional $60, was excluded as it was not worth it.
4. Don't take the options helicopter ride at Grand Canyon. It's too short and not at all worth the money. You can also avoid the Skywalk as you'll see better views just outside it.
5. When in Las Vegas, instead of taking the optional $25 city tour, just take a $8 day pass for the local Deuce bus, and you can travel along the Vegas Strip on your own.
6. Some places like the Salt Lake City Capitol were useless, but since we had to drive over that city, they gave us the chance to see it.
7. We also got a chance to shop branded items from outlet shops at Tanger Outlets in the way back.
Overall, I recommend this trip for anyone who doesn't want to drive on his own. When you are with the tour, you don't have to worry about the routes, accommodation or food, and can enjoy and relax. In order to lower costs, avoid the above mentioned items.
Very long hours on the bus but this tour covered a lot of places you will never be able to do if you used your own vehicle. Also included were 2 free lunch buffets in Las Vegas, 2 free breakfast bags, and 1 free breakfast at the Inn. You get your money's worth and more! I highly recommend this tour. You will not regret it.
Just completed the 8 days tour. Tourguide is Harry Sun. Tour operator is Sea Gull. Overall i will rate it an 8 out of 10.
Do note that for all who wishes to join this tour, there is quite long hours of travelling on the bus each day. You may want to take note of these. And i meant about at least 4 to 6 hours to get to another destinations.
Tour guide is good. Very knowlegeable. Tour was carried out in both Mandarin and English. I would say 80% of the tour mates were Chinese and hence usually it would be explained in Mandarin first then English. Kinda of weird since im travelling in America and i would think that it would be am English speaking tour. Not really an issue to me since im billingual.
The optional night tour at USD$25 in vegas is not worth it. I shld have just stick to my own plans and go to those places myself. All i need to pay was USD$7 for the public transport and i can go exactly to where this tour brings. In fact, all those places like Luxor and New York New York, they jus point out to you when they drive past in the bus. Please be aware of this that u do not get to get down to take pics. The only places where u really get to go off and take pics is at Mirage,Venetian, Bellagio and Fremont Experience.
The optional helicopter and boat ride tour in West Grand Canyon is really good. Though its a little expensive close to USD200 per person but i will give it 2 thumbs up. Breathtaking.
Skywalk i didnt do it. Wanted to do it but its pointless since i cant take picture while on the bridge.
Yellowstone was amazing. I wished that we were given more time at each geysers though.
