The places to go are excellent but too many to maximize the driving distance. Excellent tour guide Stanley & driver.
Tour operator should update hotel accomodation for travelers!!!

This is, by far, the best tour I've ever been to. It's almost impossible to visit all these sites driving your own car, so I strongly recommend taking the bus. If you're trying to escape the city and feel connected with nature, well, brace yourselves and be prepared to be inspired with what mother nature has to offer.
I have no complains regarding the sites we've visited, and like many others, Yellowstone was one of my favorites. The hotels were quite decent, I had no issues with them at all. Food is acceptable as well, you can't really be that picky when you're in the middle of nowhere. The bus usually stops at Chinese buffets because the majority of the tourists are Chinese. However, you can also go to other restaurants of your choice. You'll spend a lot of time in the bus, so I recommend taking something to read with you or something else so you don't get too bored, especially because your phone signal and internet won't be there all the time. I strongly recommend bringing a portable battery charger or a spare battery. The bus has its own restroom but this is for emergency use only. The bus stops every 2 hours for a bathroom break, so make sure you empty your bladder every stop. You'll be assigned a family number, so make sure to remember it because you'll need it for your seating assignment. Your seat will be rotated every day, but your tour guide will make sure you'll stay together with your family. If you're a family of 3 and was assigned as family #5, you'll stay as a family #5 for the rest of the trip.
I'm very into bringing medications and first aid things with me. So, do bring your prescription medications if you have medical conditions. And bring some basic meds for headache/fever/diarrhea/anti-itch cream or Benadryl, etc. Wear sunblock, long-sleeves, and wide brim hat if you're traveling during summer, because I'll guarantee, it'll burn your skin if you don't. Also, get a comfortable walking shoes as some of the sites you'll be visiting will make you walk at least 2 miles in an uneven terrain. Arches National Park, for instance, requires more hiking than other sites that you'll be visiting. You'll go up and down hills. Bring energy bars and water with you. I like eating chocolate for immediate energy boost, but it can easily melt with all the heat. Electrolyte drinks like Gatorade are also good but beware though that sugar-rich beverages tend to dehydrate you because sugar is a diuretic. You can dilute your Gatorade with equal amount of water.
I prefer traveling alone for many reasons. I have no problems meeting new friends. Be aware though that you'll only find very few people who can speak English in the group. So, if you have a hard time making new friends, then you bring your friends or family with you, and besides, you'll get a better discount that way.
You definitely won't regret this tour. So, bring your cameras with you and snap all the good memories! Enjoy!
I traveled with my wife and 1 year old son (I know it was a tough decision); but if you prepare yourself with baby food requirements, you can do it. There is no doubt about how beautiful this tour is. Tour of life-time. Wonderful support from guide and driver. I really loved how both guys supported us. I have no words, I just recommend with 10/10.
This was my first experience with the tour bus. There were times when the places visited were so interesting, that I wished there was more time allowed to enjoy the visits. A lot of places were covered in such a short span of time. The hotel accommodations were clean and comfortable, especially at Brian Head.
Saw places that showed the wonders of God's creation! Great itinerary! Our careful, good-natured, and very kind driver, Wade, and our humorous, very knowledgeable, and friendly tour guide, CJ, were the best! Couldn't ask for anything more. Can't wait to go on another adventure with TakeTours!
This was a great tour and well thought of by the TakeTours team. The tour itinerary provided a good coverage of the most beautiful places across 9 states and it was very enjoyable. We got sufficient time to spend across all attractions. The tour was extremely well planned and accommodation/ breakfast arrangements were good. Though the distance traveled was great, tour guide Mike and 'Captain' were always there to help and were patient with everyone.
My husband and I took the June 22-28 tour, and the Yellowstone day trip is the best. Thanks to our tour guide, Troy, for taking a group picture and sending them through our emails. Accommodations are all clean even the Stratosphere. The only bad thing is we were dropped by the bus short of our actual destination and asked my daughter to pick us up because it will take another 2 hours or so if we stayed and waited for others to dropped to their destinations in Los Angeles. Overall, it is an awesome and great trip. Highly recommended!
I took this tour in the last week of May 2014 and I was very much impressed with the thoughtful itinerary and the number of places we got to see. With the given cost, this tour is simply a great value for money. Of all the wonderful places we visited, I want to give special mention to Yellowstone National Park, which is full of beautiful attractions. The tour was very well organized and the bus was very comfortable. The tour guide and bus driver were very efficient, pleasant, and ready to help. Overall, it was a great and memorable trip.
