Went with my family. Loved it for everything including itinerary, tour guide and accommodation. I Would definitely recommend this tour. Very well organized.

Tour Guide: Phyliss was fantastic. Hao needs to practice and or take a class in correct English speech, diction and pronunciation. His Mandarin is very good and he spoke slow enough to understand.
Wyndham in Fresno was nice. Would of liked better accommodations in Las Vegas.
We saw a lot and although Yosemite was snowed in, going to Monterey and Carmel-by-the-sea was a great alternative.
We look forward to taking a future trip.
The tour was excellent. Our guide, How and driver Wayne did a fantastic job. The tour structure was also very good.
Although the bus ride hours were long in some part of the journey in this 4 day trip, our guide and driver gave their best to ensure that we have a good trip. How's commentary is excellent, the hospitality and positive vibes that he portrayed is superb. Though the ride from Vegas to SF is 11 hours, I did not find it exhausting.
Our driver Wayne was also very helpful to provide support to us during the trip. All of us feel safe in his hands throughout the journey.
Yes, I would recommend this tour and would book with Take Tours when I visit SF again. My sincere appreciation to all staff that make my trip a memorable one.
The sights, Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas were fascinating to see, but there was never enough time to spend there. We spent the most time of the tour inside the minibus, just some short stopps. We always were asked to hurry up. The tourguide had a heavy accent, it was hard to understand him. Also he was very unpatient about some behavings of the other passengers, they even shouted at each other. The tour guide dind't tell much about the surroundings which we passed while driving.
The hotels were very good.
The tour was excellent, specially our guide Hao who took personal care for each of the tourist, just one call away.
Hao shared good information and so many interesting facts and was funny.
We would definitely recommend the tour which was vey well organised. Guide was good, driver was good!!!
We met three tour guides on this trip - Hao from San Francisco to Las Vegas, Wesley on Grand Canyon west rim trip and Raymond from Las Vegas to Los Angeles - they were all excellent and very informative and helpful. The trip is very worthwhile - comfortable coaches for long journeys and excellent structured itinerary.
The bus driver Michael -Mike was excellent so was the Tour guide Antony. Made an excellent team so the tour became all he more enjoyable. Covered a lot of spots and were very informative. Would surely recommend to family and friends. Keep it up.
This is an excellent tour and good value. You cover a lot of miles in a short time but it's a fantastic way to see iconic sights. I travelled alone and made good friends on the tour. The driver Michael was wonderful. He was funny, attentive, made sure we saw as much as possible and was a safe and careful driver. Our main guide Antony was excellent. He paid great attention to detail and was so informative all the time. He played special 'wake up' music to prepare people for comfort break stops and was careful to give as much information as he could, even after very long days. I can't praise these two highly enough. Unfortunately we had a different guide for the long journey back - How - who gave no information at all during the long journey back (596 miles from Vegas to San Francisco) and it was clear he wasn't interested. Michael did his best but he was driving and Antony was a sad loss on this last day. I think it would be much better if the same guide stayed with the tour from beginning to end. Nevertheless an unforgettable experience.
Although a very hectic trip, Antony and Michael made it very entertaining. Antony was very good with details. The hotel in Fresno is like a 3 stars, no elevators and no wifi.
The trip back was disappointing with Hao, I hear very good reviews about him but we travelled almost 600 hundred miles with him and hardly heard any facts about anything, the only thing he mentioned was the biggest ranch in California, he was courteous but as far as information we didn't hear anything, I don't know if it was lack of knowledge or that he simply did not feel like talking, he did not even informed people about Gilroy being the Garlic capital. The trip from Gilroy to Oakland is extremely long, I don't know if there is a better connection. Hao told me there were 7 blocks from the drop off to Bart, it was a block and a half away. As I said kudos to Antony and Michael.
The highlights of the tour make it very worthwhile overall. Even the long(ish) coach journeys provided views of some extraordinary scenery. A pity our guide didn't offer more commentary on things we were seeing. At one point the driver chipped in to tell us we were passing the World's largest solar array! The 2hr trip to outlet stores was annoying, particularly as we'd only been given 25mins to grab breakfast. We resisted buying into the tour of Vegas or the show (even with the very strong sales pitch!), as they were so easy to self-organise.
I loved the national Park visits. Accomodation in Las Vegas for two nights were very poor. The Casino energy was all negative. Rooms had no amenities like hot water for coffee. On the last night we had no choice but to take food in that Casino atmosphere. Itinerary had two stops to the outlet malls for shopping. That was kind of waste of a time. Our group was excellent. Thank you.
The tour was excellent, specially our guide Bruce who took personal care for each of the tourist. The number of locations covered in those 3 days were amazing and would not have been possible if we did the trip by ourself. Keep this up.
Hao was an awesome tour guide! He knew so many interesting facts and was funny! The driver Leo was great too! They seem to love their jobs and my sister and I had a wonderful time. We got to see everything we wanted to see within a short period of time.
Yosemite and Grand Canyon were astounding to view, if only briefly. We would have preferred more time spent at the South Rim rather than at the IMAX. Our bus drivers Alex and Steve were extremely professional and punctual. Our guide Hannah was superb in spoken English and Mandarin. The hotels were comfortable. The choices of food were varied. We saw so much in four days. A really nice holiday.
Great tour. Grand Canyon and Yosemite are magnificent, as is Las Vegas in a different way. One criticism. It is very difficult to take photos from the bus while it is moving because of glare from the windows. Not a huge issue but annoying at times. Would definitely recommend the tour which was vey well organised. Guide was good, driver was good .
We recommend this tour 100%, we want to say thanks to all the tour's crew especially to the tour guy Charles he was very nice with us despite we don't speak English at all. he did such a great job to try to understand us and make a great journey for us. great service, great hotels room, and the transportation was very comfortable.
