    It was a balanced trip (rest stops, breaks, travel time) that had us seeing some of our country's most spectacular natural wonders almost daily. During the long drives, the tour manager kept us busy with interesting facts, games, advice, and videos. I can say that our friends and family were not bored with the usual vacation photos, but they readily agree we had a dream trip. Have gotten lots of compliments and inquires as to how they could look into this tour for their future dream vacation. By the way, this is our second Collette trip, and they did not disappoint us with either trip to the USA National Parks and Iceland.

    My wife and I had a great overall experience. The tour manager was terrific. He was knowledgeable of everything we saw, he provided great background to all we saw at our destinations and along the way. He provided supplemental videos to improve our knowledge of our destinations. The bus driver was also outstanding. He was also very knowledgeable of the route and destinations. He was safe and courteous. The accommodations were nearly all outstanding as well. The ones that were lacking were probably because they were close to our destinations. I think the tour could benefit by eliminating Denver as a destination and finding another location close to the Rocky Mountains.

    Our tour guide Ann Boulais gave an excellent educational overview of each park we visited. The 12 days were packed with so much to see from Sedona Arizona to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Touring the 5 National Parks should be on everyone’s bucket list. Awesome scenery, comfortable motor coach, engaging conversations, and learning about our National treasures. Some of the highlights were the Grand Canyon, Old Faithful, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Buffalo Bill Cody Museum, Crazy Horse Monument, and Mount Rushmore.

    The sights were beautiful, but my favorite sight, Bryce Canyon, we were only given about 30 minutes to view this magnificent canyon. This was very disappointing. The balance of timing per event needs to be recalibrated. The seating in the bus was uncomfortable. My husband and I are not big people and we both felt crowded (no knee room and narrow seats). These are the main reasons I gave it a four.

    The tour needed a more structured rotation for getting on and off the bus, which became very difficult for people in the back of the bus. Improvements in the bus like cup holders and tray tables plus more legroom in some of the seats were needed for such a long tour. Written slips with the AM timing and destination for the next day should have been used. Bus driver was excellent!

    This tour covers a lot of ground 2081 miles to be exact! when you hear 5 national parks in 12 days - Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, 5 states, how could you pick out a favorite? We had not been to this part of our beautiful county and at every turn, each day we thought how could this get ant better - but it did. Going in October was a risk (Yellowstone was closed couple of days before we got there because of snow) but this time of year was beautiful, Arizona a beautiful 80 degrees, golden Aspens, snow on the mountains, snap in the air with blue skies, magnificent sun sets (Grand Canon North Rim) and the stars in the evenings. We saw so much wild life, seemed every morning we started off seeing something unusual, Condors, eagle, bison, elk, moose just to name a couple.

    My reason for 2 stars is one reason only - COST. The cost of the tour was over $7,000. I understand I needed to pay the single fare but $1,500 for that was ridiculous and if I had stayed in a room with someone, that meant the cost would have been over $5,500. That is EXTREME, especially when I just found out about a trip with Trafalgar going to basically the exact same places and the cost for that trip for double occupancy is under $2,800 per person (this trip is being offered in 2019 right through the community travel agent where I live). On a positive note, I LOVED the trip itself. I loved seeing all the National Parks as well as other side trips. It was one of the best trips of my life but I am sure I could have had this same feeling with another tour company at a much lower cost.

A lot of riding on the bus but it is worth it to see all the beauty there is to see and watching the landscape pass from your seat on the bus.

    I feel like we saw everything that would have interested us on this tour and no stops that didn't. Which is way we choose Collette. I did feel a few times rush and would have liked just a little more time, especially when we had to fit sightseeing & lunch in our time slot. But I also understand that was the only way to see everything that we covered on this particular tour.

    It is really hard to pick out any one experience. We went to see national parks, and we certainly did that, starting with the Grand Canyon which I thought would be my favorite. Then we got to each of the others and, of course, I thought they were a favorite. In other words, they were all my favorites, each was so different. But the most amazing part of this trip was the scenery and the other people on this trip. Alice was wonderful in giving out the history of each area. I could go on and on, but this was the most wonderful, fun and memorable experience of a lifetime.

There was limited time at Yellowstone but we had 2 days in Salt Lake City.. this was suppose to be a National Parks trip. We barely had our feet on the ground at Yellowstone. Most of the time was touring on the bus- very disappointing. Also, we were given a prolonged lunch stop before Jackson Hole and then got into town to find we had only a short time to look around before we boarded the bus for the ride to the hotel. Why didn't we get to town earlier and reduce the prolonged lunch break?

We went from a plush four star room to one with furniture that had drawers that would not shut, wrinkled, nasty rugs, doors with wood peeling and cracking at the bottom and a "plastic" type sink top. It did have running water and A/C. That's the best I can say about it. Otherwise, accommodations were good, if not downright rustic.

    The National Parks tour was a great way to see some beautiful parts of America for the first time. From Sedona, Arizona to Rapid City, South Dakota (Mt. Rushmore). I saw places I'd never thought I'd see. Bryce Canyon, Utah was an amazing sight to see, with it's red rock formations. But just about every stop was interesting and enjoyable. Even little Cody, Wyoming had a great museum about Buffalo Bill and Indians. I really enjoyed Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The visit there was made even better by our stay in a first class resort-style hotel at The Lodge at Jackson Hole. The evening was fun with a covered wagon trip, complete with Indian ambush, to a cowboy dinner in the park. Great way to sightsee. Great way to see an amazing part of America.

    Fantastic tour. Only 2 suggestions: 1. A few more hours at the Old Faithful Geyser and less time at Cody Cultural Center (kinda a snore after a half hour), and 2. In Jackson Hole, offer Wildlife Safari as an optional excursion. I did this on my own and it was awesome. Guides are biologists and know their stuff. And were able to take a small group (3 of us) into the back unpaved roads to see the wildlife. Well worth the money.
