National Parks Tour Reviews


Grand Canyon National Park Tour Review from Las Vegas You may simply call this a travel blog or diary! I wrote this review looking at Google map and our photos following the chronology of our tour itinerary to the USA west parks: Well, we just got back to Europe from a two week trip that took all of our small group to the USA breathtaking national parks and canyon lands of the wild west "far west". The open western roads like Route 66 through the far west and the countryside are picturesque ! Our tour guide ,Adam was knowledgeable and very friendly! Adam picked us up at Las Vegas Airport and escorted us until the last day of our adventure that ended up at SFO international airport! We decided to skip many famous sights and attraction including Hollywood, universal studios in Los Angeles and even Las Vegas downtown…we were interested in sightseeing parks and attractions off the beaten path. Las Vegas was interesting but we wouldn't go back because its famous for its giant casinos…they all look the same. However, we liked the proximity of Las Vegas from beautiful national parks and canyons like Death Valley, Hoover Dam , Grand Canyon, the valley of fire, Zion national park and Bryce canyon in Utah! It was hard for us in Europe to pus these parks and canyons on the map but was easier when you traveled there…if you like opne road under a blue sky and endless horizons-this would be the perfect place for you to visit. We all had great expectations on sights and attractions like the Grand Canyon national park and were not disappointed. Indeed, we were very pleased and surprised by the majestic Bryce canyon and Monument valley red rocks. We highly recommend a tour itinerary that combines the grand canyon, bryce canyon and monument valley but also off the beaten path parks s and canyons like Mesa Verde and Durango Polar Express train to Silverton! We loved driving from Durango to Moab as well! Moab arches are breathtaking and the dirt roads that took us off the main highway along these windy rivers in the canyons were wonderful. If you ever travel west, don't mess the Mammoth Lakes area and Lake Tahoe as well! they are gorgeous! They are so different from the grand canyon and death valley… you drive from desert and hot spots like death valley to snow and lakes areas like mammoth lakes and lake Tahoe. The landscaped looks like science fiction movie! There are many Lakes and hot springs all over covered by snow in the sierra Nevada mountains. Bring a swim sweet and experience these amazing hot springs in the middle of no where and free of charges! An advice, if you have motion sickness, let your tour operator know if before…my wife was sick all the times…I felt bad for the other folks. I wish we would know so bring pills for motion sickness . I actually got motion sickness too when we came down from Bristlecone national park and Tioga Pass on the way to the Yosemite park! Also, don't take the tram in Mariposa grove of giant sequoias but rather hike through the sequoias to enjoy the hidden big trees can't be seen from the roadway….This review is obviously turning to diary rather than a tour review…we wanted share this amazing adventure with others…I hope this will help some in choosing their tour itinerary as we did. Of course we loved our wine tasting tour in Napa Valley on the way to San Francisco but found Napa Valley to commercial and business oriented. I personally preferred the Sonoma valley and old down town where California mission lies. I can drink wine anywhere I want …this history of California and its missions was more interesting to us the wine tasting itself … but this my opinion! My friends told me many good stuff about San Francisco …we all fell in love of San Francisco! Alcatraz Island is picturesque right n the middle of San Francisco bay! We missed Muir Woods redwoods park and many other sights but that was a long a trip and couldn't afford more time and money! We are all back and grateful to Adam and Golden Horizon Travel! Very good tour itinerary and excellent tour organization…every time we got a restaurant, lunch or dinner were read and fresh to be served! I don't know expectations can be defined but we are all happy and satisfied with the tour and tour guide and all the hotels were we stayed. Thank you Golden Horizon Tours from all of US

Lo mejor de este viaje ha sido poder conocer los famosos parques nacionales de América durante nuestras vacaciones familiares, mis hijos les encanta estar en contacto con la naturaleza y este viaje ha sido perfecto para ellos, conocieron el parque nacional de Yosemite y los enormes arboles de secuoyas, pudieron ver animales en su hábitat natural, disfrutar el aire libre y puro de las montañas, recorrer el parque de Muir Woods y comparar estos árboles a los del Yosemite que son totalmente diferentes,  el viaje fue una experiencia increíble todo estaba bien organizado, desde el momento que nos acomodamos en el hotel que nos habían recomendado,  el guía turístico tan simpático que compartió con nosotros sus conocimientos, sus anécdotas, todo ello   quedara vivamente en nuestros recuerdos como  uno de los  mejores paseos familiares que hemos tenido

Queria agradecer al equipo de Golden Horizon Travel por hacer de nuestra excursión  para conocer los bosques de secuoyas tan bien organizados, tuvimos oportunidad de comparar tantos los arboles redwoods como los secuoyas y poder diferenciar sus ramas y pinas, la textura de su corteza esponjosa!  Es uno de los arboles más antiguos sobre la faz de la tierra.!
Muy aconsejable visitar los arboles de secuoyas!

Este viaje de dos días ha sido maravilloso, estar rodeados de parques tan bien preservados llenos de arboles de madera roja Redwoods una especie de secuoyas, estos árboles tienen una longevidad de cientos de años y son los arboles más altos del mundo. Nuestra excursión empezó rumbo al norte de San Francisco donde se encuentran los arboles redwoods fue un viaje placentero porque la camioneta que nos llevo era grande y había toda clase de amenidades para mí y mis hijos, ellos pudieron jugar con los videos juegos durante el camino lo que los mantuvo distraídos y divertidos. Para nuestra excursión por los arboles de redwoods planeamos unas pequeñas caminatas de senderismo, fáciles para que mis hijos pudieran recorrer el parque y ver en el camino aves y animalitos del bosque. Fue muy interesante escuchar las explicaciones sobre los árboles y  plantas que nuestro guía turístico hacia mientras recorríamos el parque, muy conocedor del tema y ha despertado la curiosidad de mis hijos por las plantas.!
