The tour allowed us to explore many different places and the packed itinerary meant we were on the move the whole time. Although the time we had in each location was limited, we enjoyed our visits and were inspired to return to some of the locations ourselves.
I found trip to be value for money and very well organised.All the guides were well behaved,knowledgeable and helpful.Hotel stays was comfortable and we really enjoyed the whole trip.Time management was excellent and guides and drivers need to be congratulated on this.
You get more than you pay for with these people. We were accommodated in 3 to 4 star hotels every night, had our admission fees to Disneyland and Universal Studios included, and visited Yosemite National Park, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Hearst Castle, Solvang, the Mars Chocolate Factory and some retail outlets. The itinerary had to be changed a couple of times, but with a relaxed attitude of flexibility, it was an amazing trip, worth much more than the $650 we paid per person for all of these things. We were also picked up from the LAX airport and dropped back there at the end of 10 days. The tour guides were superb, and worked long hours to ensure that we learned as much as we could about the places we were seeing. The equivalent cheapest trip like this which I could have arranged through a travel agent in Australia would have cost about $4000 for the 2 of us.
