Because it was so early in the year the visit...

Miss Elisabeth Conway

Because it was so early in the year the visit to Mt Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monument were disappointing. Completely fogged in and nothing could be seen. Also the brochure should warn about altitude and climate variation. I was very ill with altitude sickness in Yellowstone, Rushmore and Bryce Canyon.

Trusted Customer

Reasonable accommodation in 3 star hotels. Lots of coach travel around states of approximately 3-4000 miles. Wonderful sights including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Bryce Canyon, Yellowstone and Grand Canyon. Good trip to museum in Cody. Director of tour was satisfactory with planning of trip but poor with often repetitive and confusing instructions for times of meet. A full on sightseeing tour!
