If you want lots of details about this trip, feel free to read my travel blog at http://pgalland.blogspot.com/2016/04/national-parks-with-girls.html . Tracy Gordon, our tour manager, was simply outstanding. Most of our group of 34 were experienced international travelers, but many had never visited our Wyoming, Utah, and Arizona national parks so shared the awe of the many international visitors we encountered. This trip frequently stays in park lodges, a huge plus! Our group of six would give this one an A+!

If you've never done this trip, do it ASAP. Vantage does a well timed excursion through the spectacular scenery of the Rockies and our Nat'l parks. Accommodations are great the "deluxe motor coach" is the way to go!

This trip is not to be missed. The scenery everywhere is spectacular. It is beautifully paced. The lodgings are terrific & well appointed. The free time is more than adequate and I wouldn't change much: maybe a night at Zion would be an improvement if possible. Vegas is Vegas and a fitting end and not a beginning to enjoy nature's best.

Best trip done with Vantage! We started our trip from Bozeman, Montana and under a mild snow shower. Got to Yellowstone national Park, Wyoming when not many people can get in due to the snow. From there on it was complete enjoyment at all the parks and so beautiful scenery. All our stays where the best and we enjoy this trip so much that we want to do again but with the 3-night optional Glacier Park pre-extension

The National Park Tour is a must see! Vantage did it again by providing an excellent guide, superb coach service and excellent accommadations! We could not have possibly done this by ourselves. You quickly learn that God created some wonder country. We would highly recommend Vantage!

This trip was great. We covered a lot of ground and saw lots of parks but at a nice pace. We wished that we would have had more time in Zion National Park as it was an incredible place. We also could have eliminated going to Las Vegas. It did not fit in after seeing the natural beauty of our country. Our tour leader was fantastic! I believe her name was Cheryl. She was so organized and knowledgable about the parks. She also was a lot of fun and kept the group busy during long bus drives. It was great staying right in the parks and that was one of the details that we liked about Vantage. Overall it was a great trip and well worth the price.

This trip and the tour guide, Cindy Wilson, were perfect. She was totally familiar with all the plants and wildlife in this area. We saw so much more because of her knowledge. The trip itself is spectacular. The mountains, the vistas, the pristine lakes. It was the total package. We loved it to say the least. We learned a great deal and I am sure forgot more than that. From the snowcapped mountains at Glacier to the sun drenched peaks at Zion. From the views in Monument Valley to the huge cavernous Grand Canyon and everything in between, we loved it all.

This tour was wonderful! I believe we saw the best of each park and point of interest we went to. Our Tour Guide, Cindy Wilson, was excellent---the best tour guide we have had on any trip, and we travel a great deal. Her enthusiasm was catching, and she was very knowledgeable about all we saw and more! Our Driver, Cindy Autumn(?)did a great job, we especially on the more difficult roads.

A wonderful way to revisit the many National Parks we had visited on our own many, many years ago. Very well organized by our tour leader, great accomodations in the National Parks which are almost impossible to obtain on your own and best part of all the "leave the driving to us" We always meet many nice people from all parts of the country and the comradery makes these trips extra special. We hope to partake in many more trips with Vantage and so far never have been disappointed. Ria Hurban

We felt this trip was superb. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the parks and the environment. She was extremely organized which we appreciated. The parks were so beautiful and all so different from each other. We suggest that you do not wait too long because the more mobile you are, the more you will enjoy this excellent trip.

From the moment we arrived in Bosman Mt until our return home from Las Vegas, our trip was managed in an excellent manner. There were some mother nature issues that intervered with some of the pleasure and required missing the Tetons but our program manager, Bill, managed everything to the very best that could've been expected. Bill helped us feel very comfortable and was always very attentive to our needs while still being efficient in meeting tour timelines. Bill provided us with more detailed information about the areas toured than could be obsorbed. Besides very pleasureable, this trip was sgnificantly educational. Great job Bill and Vantage!!!

This was a trip that I had no intentions of taking but my wife talked me into it. At the end of the first day I knew that it was a good decision. Our National Parks are something not to be missed. Vantage provided a fantastic host and the driver was more than great. From Glacier National Park to the final stop in Las Vegas was spectacular. The days in Yellowstone, Arches, Brice and all the other stops presented the beauty of the United States. This was a real time to stop and 'smell the roses' event. I would not hesitate to take this journey again.

We are veteran Vantage travelers. Without a doubt, this was our very best adventure and one that we would very highly recommend. The sites were magnificent, the lodges and hotels were top rated and conveniently located, the meals were spectacular. Our tour guide, Cindy Wilson, was beyond compare in knowledge, experience, friendliness, helpfulness, and just an all around fantastic woman. Her background knowledge of both historical aspects and scientific aspects were those of PhD quality but still understandable for the non-scientific/historical traveler. She is also a world class photographer who readily shared her expertise with all of her clients. She went above and beyond what any other tour director has ever done in our experience. This is the trip of a lifetime for anyone wishing to explore our beautiful United States.

This was a fantastic trip. I feel everyone here in America should see our National Parks and see how beautiful America real is. I can't say enough about this trip. It bought tears to me seeing how beautiful our country is. Just thinking of our troops who fought for our freedom and todays troops protecting our freedom so we can enjoy our beautiful country. I would take this trip again. Our Program Manager Bill and Coach Driver Randy was just fantastic. My wife just loved Bryce Canyon. She made a beautiful slide video of the trip with background music God Bless America that will definitely bring tears.
