The best experience that you can have covering so many places in 6 days - with 2 days in Yellowstone. Spencer and Mauricio took very good care of 3 of us. Spencer knew exactly about when to leave and reach each location to get the sunlight in right direction for best shots and less crowd. I will say just follow them and you will have a great time!
This tour was excellent, mainly due to our amazingly knowledgeable and humorous tour guide Spencer (who considered all of us his family) and our superb driver Mauricio, and of course the beautiful sights of Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. It so happened that the the bus was filled with 50 Chinese and 5 Indians, who all bonded by the end of the trip. I don't think any other tour will cover as many sights as this one did in 6 days. The lodgings at Yellowstone (Grand Village Lodge) was excellent. The other hotels were not bad at all, but would recommend an upgrade in hotels and eating stops. Also would have liked more time in the Grand Tetons. I would highly recommend this tour if you have the Spencer/Mauricio team to guide and drive you.
I took this tour with my 5 year old daughter. It was an amazing trip, we enjoyed every moment. Beautiful locations especially Yellowstone is picturesque. We want to go with TakeTours on many more trips in coming days....
I had taken a similar tour 558-972 starting from Salt Lake City on 11th May. My wife and I flew in from SFO.
This was one of the best experiences in my life. There cannot be a better way of seeing Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore and other attractions mentioned in this tour. The commendable features were
-Excellent, helpful, kind and considerate and knowledgeable guide-MR SENCER LAM
The driver-MR Mauricio Martinez.
Impeccable bus, top hotel rooms and the itinerary.
The guide and the driver were very warm, always smiling and ready to accommodate the travellers. Both of them knew Yellowstone like lines on their palms.
If any trail was closed , they offered and equally good one.
In the end, we sang songs from our countries, became friends and returned with very warm memories.
Thank you Mr Spencer and Mt Mauricio once again.
P.S Pl do not consider getting up at 6 and leaving at 7 on some days as a nuisance. Otherwise , you cannot see everything.
I took this trip on July 2012. It was a great trip. Bus driver and Spencer, the guide, was great. Spencer had a lot of information to share. Hotels were good, even in Yellowstone. Driving, scenery, and food all were good. Just be aware that you will be in bus for long. And some days you have to wake up 6am. But it was worth the price and time. Highly Recommend it.
If you don't mind missing out on some sleep & making the most of a vacation, then GoToBus is for you. You will definetly see a lot in a short period of time. The long drive wasn't bad. My only complaint would be the lack of communication from GoToBus prior to the start of the tour. I had to contact them to get my tour guides information. My second complaint would be you can't really enjoy a place because you're on a strict time schedule.
There were 4 best scenic locations out of this tour: Yellow Stone, Mt. Rushmore, drive-in zoo and Kennecott Utah Copper Mine. The 2 worst stops were Mormon temple and Crazy Horse. I think they should replace these with shopping trips. There were factory outlet stores and shopping malls along the way.
