Tour Code: 773-402, dated 5/28/22-5/24/22, 7-day tour to Yellowstone bought from Taketours.
Taketours- company who sold the tour to us.
CTour- company who supplies the bus, driver and tour guide.
The first day, 5/18/22, of the tour with CTour was rough, the CTour bus engine dies every time the driver put her into gears. We were delayed 3 1/2 hours waiting for bus a change. We arrived at St George Utah after 8 PM. All restaurants closes at 8 PM. The Red Lyon hotel put us on the second floor but the hotel did not have an elevator. Was very hard for older tourists like me to bring up heavy luggages to the 2nd floor.
On the 2nd day, 5/19/22, we first went Antelope Valley. While in Antelope Valley, my friend asked the CTour guide, Beau, when were we leaving for Bryce Canyon but Beau said Bryce Canyon was not in the itinerary but Horseshoe Bend was.
This was major discrepancy between Taketours that sold us the tour and CTour that service the actual tour. This was also a major disappointments for our group of 13 people who bought from Taketour that advertised for Bryce Canyon but we did not go there.
Why were the itineraries between Taketours and CTour not synchronized? Customers like me felt betrayed.
We stayed on 3 hotels that did have elevators, ask for first floor accommodations if you have problems bringing up your heavy luggages to the second floor.
The seats rotated every 2 days, for just a 7 days tour, the seats should be rotated everyday so more people will experience sitting in front of the bus.
Other than the above observations, the rest of the tour were okay. Beau, CTour tour guide, was good and helpful as well as the bus driver who handled our luggages in and out of the bus every morning and afternoon, drove us to places on time.
I recommend this tour. I went with my spouse. Covered beautiful landscape of almost entire western coast.It covers all the places mentioned in the itinerary. I wished my Guide - Bill was little strict with latecomers and cleanliness. All hotel accommodations were good. Vegetarians had fewer options at the Bus stops. we had ordered Veg items from Subway,Domino,Pizza hut and also Veg fried rice/noodles at Chinese restaurant. And also our driver Davee was very skilled. Also note, location description by guide is in Chinese and English.
My sister, brother and I went to the tour (Apr26 - May01) with Kelvin Wu and Mr. Huang (driver). We enjoyed not only the spectacular views, but also the stories and history information that Kelvin shared with us. I am waiting for the group photos that Kelvin promised to send to us.
The price that we paid was worth it.. especially if you're a backpacker... anything anywhere goes...3,600miles, 7 states for 6 nights so beautiful. Not all hotels were impressive but we still had a good sleep. Our captain Driver - Rick and Tour guide Tony were a good tandem. # 1 Rule, always be on time. Sure enough most of the tourist were on time. Our reward, we were able to see other view points, especially in Yellowstone. They would always recommend going to the restroom every time we have a stop over every 2 hrs. We do have a restroom in the bus but we don't use it to avoid stinky smell along the tour. They showed a movie about the history of America and the rest are movies. The best Chinese buffet we had was the one heading to Yellowstone.
