Excellent experience. The tour was very organized. The guide worked hard to ensure that no one was left behind and the itinerary was not disturbed. Angela is a very good tour guide.

Our tour guide, Perry, was excellent and we enjoyed the trip to our utmost satisfaction, but we regret for not having the option for an overnight stay inside Yosemite Park.

    Tour guide was very average. Mostly speaking in Chinese and wasn't able to communicate/ express herself on the different places we visited. Accommodation was provided in Crowne Plaza and was really good. I am rating 4 only because, there was no drinking water provided (I could find only ice cubes outside) Transportation was good too. Driver & tour guides were friendly. Itinerary was congested - a lot of places were put in together and not much of time to spend. Tour guide gave very minimum time to see the places. By the time we tried to find restrooms to freshen up, very little was available to catch up with the places. For someone who is traveling with kids, it's a nightmare to catch up with their time. Solvang market and 17 mile ride were good. It would have been better to provide a minimum time of 1 and half hours in Solvang market to see the places around and take some pictures. Rather, we were told to go and get some sweets from Danish Bakery and get some food to eat. There were a lot of better things to see around in Solvang. We arrived to Crowne Plaza by 9:30PM, were asleep by 11:30PM, and woke up the next morning by 5:00AM to catch the bus at 6:00AM. Straight to University of California Berkely and there was nothing much there. Just went inside UC and could take a couple of pictures there. I would say remove UC from itinerary, nothing much to see there. It would be good to keep this in itinerary if there is a museum or something to visit. Morning break fast we had only half an hour time, by the time we figured out a pharmacy, 25 minutes were gone and had to get a sandwich from a liquor store. We went to taste the wine later in Napa Valley (but we never reached there, they stopped in between someplace called Cline Vineyard) , was thinking to see the vineyward , but could find only 5 glasses of wine to taste and had a little bit of time to see around. You could get 15% off on wines if you buy from there, i.e. something which anyone could expect to get from any vineyards. Back to Fisherman's Wharf, caught up with some good burgers for lunch (spicy fried fish burger and was really good ). By 1:10PM, in the burning sun we went for a Bay cruise. This item if pushed as an evening tour, it would be a little relaxing as well as given a little more pleasant experience to see the marvelous Golden Gate Bridge. After the cruise, we were dropped near Chinatown as we opted out of the extensive tour of SFO city and had to wait for another 4 and half hours for them to return. We roamed around the city a little bit and had a good dinner too. If someone wanted to return back to the hotel , they would have to pay at least $80 - $100 to reach Crowne Plaza in Union City. Next day we got up at 4:00AM, and started from the hotel by 5:15AM heading to Yosemite Valley. The drive to Yosemite was scenic, but because of all the curves, kids and some adults will have tendency to vomit. So be prepared and carry some extra covers , a lot of tissues, and also clothes for kids :) . Spent about 1 hour there, and was good. My personal opinion about the trip is okay, and itís like a rapid fire round. If you just want to cover as many places in short time , itís the best choice, or else donít go for it.

    Had a great time, our guide 'Eric' was friendly and was always helpful and considerate. Itinerary was redesigned based on weather and traffic conditions due to long weekend to get us better experience. We did stop at decent places to eat and use the restrooms. I had heard that people had problems with the restaurant selections, but we didn't face any issues and my wife is vegetarian. We took the optional rides as well to make most of the tour. All in all, a great trip and I will definitely be going again on other tours by them.

    The trip was very well planned and we had a great time in San Francisco, Yosemite, and Montery Bay. The trip had many long distance journeys, but the breaks in between made us feel refreshed. The best part of the tour was day 2 when we visited a lot of beautiful places in San Francisco. The tour guide and driver were very polite and helped us in all the ways they can. They were very cooperating and understanding. Overall its a tour to look forward to.

    It was a good tour. My parents enjoyed it. But, the tour guide was kind of rude when my parents were a little late one time.

    I had a marvelous time. My kids enjoyed the trip. Actually, this is my second time on this trip. The bus is always on time. I will recommend this to my family and friends. I will book my tour again maybe to go somewhere in NY or DC. Thanks for the great time.

    This was a very nice trip. The hotel was excellent (Hilton Pleasanton). The itinerary was on schedule, though changed around a bit (started at Yosemite and ended in Monterey). The majority of the movies played on the bus were in English with Chinese subtitles, though on our way home there was one movie played that was in Chinese but it did not have English subtitles, so we could not understand what the movie was about. Our driver (Jose) took excellent care of our lives in his hands and the minor mechanical problem we had on our way home (1hr delay). Despite some group members not adhering to the time table, our guide (Allen) did a wonderful job in keeping the group on task and informing us about every stop we made. He is a very patient man. Thank you gotobus and we look forward to more tours in the future!
