    3.5 - Good

    Covering a total distance of approx 6,045 km in 24 days there are some very long drive days where you spend the entire day (up to 10 hours) driving with occasional rest stops at a Walmart. This is the main negative about this trip. Otherwise it is probably the best way to see the USA at this price with the fun Contiki offers. You see and do a lot of great things (e.g. Quebec City, Yellowstone). Even some of the not so great things you see are memorable for their lameness (e.g. Spam Museum, Corn Palace, etc.) The tour has a mix of big cities and small towns. Due to the length of the tour, having a good group and tour manager are important to your enjoyment. We had a good group and an okay tour manager. If you can handle the long drive days then this could be the tour for you. You will put on weight during this tour. Every stop is fast food...

    This was a great experience and i would reccommend it to anyone who is unsure of what tour to do while in America. You get to see some great sites and visit some amazing states. You hit all the right tourist attractions with highlights being a helicopter ride over the grand canyon and landing inside for a champagne lunch, Niagara Falls, not to mention the city that never sleeps Las Vegas is a must for anyone going to America. Any questions just ask i will be happy to share my experience to others. Amanda :)
