Highlights:Visit Yellowstone (Artist Point, Fountain Paint Pot, Grand Prismatic Hot Spring, Morning Glory Pool, Norris Geyser Basin, Old Faithful Geyser), Salt Lake City (Great Salt Lake, Mormon Temple), Grand Teton National Park.
First ever tour like this for me. Tour started on 9/3/18. Cons: The itinerary schedule/paper was just a guide, things on our trip used the 'or similar' sections a lot. Pickup at the airport did not happen as described in the itinerary. I was looking for a tour group person/bus. Ended up that the hotel van provided the pickup. They changed the Great Salt Lake visit from the last day to the first stop on the trip, which actually shortened the trip and limited what you will see at other places. Getting done early also causes more 'free time' depending upon if you have a flight home on the last day. The one hotel (not caused by the tour group) had NO hot water in any of the rooms. Pros: Even with the issues, I still enjoyed this tour. With the previous reviews, I anticipated some of the things that happened. Ben (tour guide) did a good job explaining things in english. While you are in the bus a lot, you do see some very cool things. I met some really nice people from all over the world.
It was an excellent tour. The tour has covered all the important points of Yellowstone and grand Teton national park . The schedule was very hectic but is worth as it covered everything in so little time.
I would recommend this tour ,Charlie was a nice tour guide very helpful who helped us non Chinese speaking .hotels are clean would like to see the hotels in yellow Stone with fridge and microwave in the room.over all the tour was good if you want to see several sites in short time.this is mostly Chinese tourists.Expect to pay in cash and eat Chinese foods or subway coz the food chain are limited along the way.
Ben was awesome! The driver was great (such a good driver)! I have never been on a tour, but I was very impressed with the tour making certain we saw all the sights. Beware, it is a brisk tour cramming what would take you a week to do on your own in a couple of days. Demographics were mostly Asian (very nice and wouldn't even know they had children with them). I will definitely take another.
The tour company did a wonderful job with the tour and accommodation. Tour guide Danny did a wonderful Job and very informative. It would have been nice if trip includes upper loop of the national park.
Loved it !!!
Tour guide (Su Bang) was excellent and took all care of accommodations, well spaced rest stops , made the tour pleasing and informative.
Tour guide is the most important component of an enjoyable vacation and were lucky to have Su Bang as our guide
The tour involves getting up early and sitting long hours on a bus, but we were able to see many amazing sites within a short period of time so for us it was worth it. The guide, Charley, was extremely helpful and considerate to us even though we were among only four non-Chinese speakers on the tour. Charley also played good movies on the bus which helped the time to pass by more quickly.
The Tour company does an excellent job. They have knowledgeable, friendly staff who have a real passion for Yellowstone and the beauty found within. We did the lower loop of the park the first day and the upper loop the second day. The lower loop had more walking which we enjoyed and wonderful geologic sites. The upper loop had more time on the bus but excellent wildlife sightings.
We booked two all-day tours: upper loop and lower loop of Yellowstone. There were many opportunities for photography, exploring, and bathroom breaks. The driver/guide obviously enjoys his job and was very friendly, patient, good-humored, and informative. We learned a lot and saw much more than we could have seen on our own in 2 days. It was nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving.
Very whistle-stop and jam-packed. You get to see the highlights of the lower loop within Yellowstone; Old Faithful, springs including the Grand Prismic Spring, Yellowstone falls and the grand canyon of the Yellowstone, as well as Yellowstone Lake. Comfortable accommodation. The tour guide was friendly.
The trip was very nice, informative and perfectly planned to cover the areas mentioned in the itinerary. Though the English from the tour guide was a bit broken, he was quite approachable, friendly . We were also taken to great lunch and dinner places. I loved every bit of this tour.
The overall quality is good with great tour guide.
However, waking up 5am in the morning is too early for me.
One thing need to be noticed, they charge extra 50 for park access and 8/day per person for tips.
Good tour. The accommodation was excellent, although the breakfast on the first day was not very good. Our tour guide was able to convey everything we needed to know, especially as we were the only non-Chinese on the tour. We had a great time!
