Great day, it was amazing. The driver/guide on the coach was first class....Ann Shuttleworth, United Kingdom, 08/May/2018
Don't visit San Francisco April 20th. By no fault of the bus or it's drive we were stuck for a long time in traffic. The rest of the trip was comfortable and fun....Geri Jones, United States, 02/May/2018
