The western wonders tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was excellent. The grand canyon was very grand, and Yosemite stunning.

The Grand Canyon trip was over rated and very expensive. We would not pay $221 per person had we known it was just a mere 20 min helicopter ride. What a waste of money. Those who flew from Las Vegas previously had a better deal with lunch provided. Some hotels were not as good as others. The Carlton hotel in San Francisco had no air conditioning in the lobby. It was very hot. The driver and the tour director were excellent.

Got the lot - deserts / mountains & sea. Lots to see with some major bucket list locations included - Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Golden Gate to name 3. Lots of add ons to pick & choose from. Fantastic tour guide & drivers with both knowledge & humour. Helped to make a tour into an experience not to be missed. Made some great friends & memories forever I'd do it all again tomorrow!

Can't fault anything really. The service from Cosmos was good, I was kept informed all along the line and documents etc were received when I was told they would be. The Western Wonders tour was exactly what I thought it would be, and exactly what I wanted it to be. Not enamoured with Las Vegas but that is my own view, could have done with more time in Yosemite as there was so many walks I could have done. Alcatraz not to be missed! Overall a great experience and one I'm glad I chose.

Great tour, except one of the days was just a travel day and quite boring though the guide did her best to keep us amused.
