    This was a whistle stop tour of some big US west coast highlights. Very enjoyable and a great small group (10 people). However, it is a LOT of driving and you do spend a large amount of your time seeing the US from a car window. there is also not a lot of spare time due to the distances covered and the driving constraints given the guide is also the driver, and can only for safety reasons drive a couple of hours at a time. Although it was a good time to go as the summer crowds had gone and the waterfalls in the parks were in full flow, it was at times as a disappointing tour as I felt our guide had already checked out for the year. He had said it was his last tour for the year and appeared keen to leave, in fact leaving us on the last morning of tour before we'd even packed up and checked out of the final hotel. A couple of key advertised experiences did not happen even though they were on the itinerary, including the pizza dinner on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Despite being included and there being another tour group at the canyon doing the same thing, nothing was arranged for us and we ended up back at a village takeaway for pizza across the road from the hotel. Overall, it was a reasonable tour and quick way to see the highlights, but be prepared that you may not get what was in the plans.

    Thanks for the honest feedback here Nicole. I'm sorry things didn't deliver as you fully might have hoped. Yes, it is a quick tour with a lot packed in. I hope there were some positives to draw from the experience to balance out the negative here.
