HELP! Opinions, Best of USA or Grand Southern?

2 Sep 2014 Missy asked


A friend and myself are looking at either one of these trips for july/august 2015. I want to do the best of USA as it spends a couple of nights in each main city whereas she wants to do the grand southern however I feel it is a long time to spend on a bus and you only get 1 day or night before moving onto the next town. I would rather enjoy places like vegas, san gran & cali for a couple of nights. I need some opinions on which one you guys recommend??? Thanks in advance :)

    I think it would be best if your will try to experience everything because in that way you will have an understanding about such things. –

    either option sounds good. it really doesn’t feel that long on the bus because you have stops in between the places listed on the itinerary. plus on the bus everyone is talking, playing games, listening to music, sleeping, and or taking in the scenery. I’ve had 6 hour long bus rides and it felt like 2 hours. worst comes to worst, you guys do your own thing. they are plenty of other travelers that travel alone with contiki and with the amount of other people on the trip, you will never be alone.
