On our trip we had an outstanding tour guide (Tyson). So much information and accommodation for the travelers.

Bad weather had a negative impact on part of the tour, but nothing was negative otherwise.

Too many gift store stops for shopping. Should offer weather related no-sees like no cliff dwellings and Bryce Canyon on this trip - e.g. credits on optional tours on future travel.

It was a memorable and fantastic Trip

Our Tour Guide was experienced and personable. He treated each one of us respectfully and answered questions readily to clarify for those who had further inquiries. The sights we saw made for an extraordinary experience - it was worth every cent we paid!

Luggage information was not followed by Trafalger. Coach had bathroom but wasn't available most of the time. Bus swayed back and forth making it uncomfortable. Tour director was great!!! Paolo was informative but sometimes hard to reach.

This by far was the best trip I've taken with Trafalger. The Tour Director and bus driver made the trip most enjoyable. I had a very good time.

My whole experience was astounding. No complaint at all except that one has to have as much energy as possible to keep up with the activities

An excellent trip I would recommend.

WE had a wonderful time. The weather even cooperated most of the time. We always meet such nice people on these tours. The tour guides are very informative & are very helpful, always willing to help anyone,anytime. The hotels were all very nice. The food was Great. The whole trip was awesome! Our bus driver was very nice & so helpful. He just added to the trip.

Our trip was great success. Our accommodations were great, the guide was very knowledgeable and the bus driver was wonderful. We had great weather which always helps and the tour itself more that met our expectations.

This trip was amazing and went beyond our expectations of all the national parks and locations that we where to visit. You will experience so much in only 15 days and it was worth every penny. Highly recommend this trip and itinerary. You could never do this trip and visit so many sites on your own, Great value.

Our tour guide and bus driver were a remarkable team who made our trip wonderful.

Trafalgar is top-notch! This trip surpassed our expectations - everything from the room accommodations, the tour director and the itinerary. Just superb and we will certainly do another Trafalgar tour in the future.

Fantastic views, great trip schedule, good food, good hotels, and the best tour guide ever!!

This trip was outstanding. It was all and more than we expected. The service we received was wonderful. The itinerary was well selected. The only thing that we could have asked for was a horseback riding experience while out west as a possible added excursion. Thanks for helping to create unforgettable memories. You are good at what you do.

Our consultant of affordable tours was always very helpful, informative and responsive. The Trafalgar tour itinerary was wonderful, and our tour director and our driver were fabulous. We would highly recommend both affordable tours and Trafalgar to anyone.

I was amazed at how organized everything was--from assigning and rotating coach seating to accommodating the vegetarians to delivering and picking up persons taking special trips. Everything was wonderful, including the weather except for one day. We were to fly over the Grand Canyon but it was raining and flights were cancelled so instead we were going to go to the rim again. When we got there the rain had ceased but the whole canyon in front of us was filled with fog. We were very fortunate to have good weather the other days.

THE ONLY DOWN SIDE OF THIS TRIP WAS THE AIRLINES IT WAS SPIRIT AND IT WAS TERRIBLE OTHERWISE A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

The National Parks tour with Trafalgar was outstanding and would recommend this package.

THis trip exceeded my expectations. I am definitely looking to book similar vacations in the future.

A great tour. Tour Director & Driver best have ever had.

WE WERE MORE THEN HAPPY WITH OUR VACATION. THE TOUR GUIDE WAS OUTSTANDING AS WAS THE DRIVER ASSIGNED TO OUR BUS. THE ADDITIONAL EXCURSIONS WE BOOKED EVEN ADDED TO OUR PLEASURE WITH THE TRIP.WE WOULD DEFINITELY USE BOTH THE SERVICES OF AFFORDABLE TOURS AND TRAFALGER AGAIN
