I loved this tour. The Wild Western truely has it all. A great mixture of nature and cities. So you can have time to relax and time to Party on. Our tourmanager Jack Larsen was great. This tour has many 2 nightstops what holds back the fast pace contiki is usually traveling with. Vegas was a blast... The surprise is so funny. Do it. The Grand Canyon... Wow, best National Park I've ever seen. You can't stop being astonished. Highlights: Grand Canyon, Vegas, Yosemite.

What an awesome trip!!! Not only was the tour with a great bunch of people, if it was not for the the Tour manager Steph and our driver Adrian, it would not have been such an awesome experience. They went out of their way in their own time to make sure we all had such an awesome experience where ever we were. Would highly recommend a tour such as this with Contiki, especially if these guys where in control again. They deserve pay rises !!!

Went on this tour in August and had the most amazing time! It has everything from cities to towns to beaches to desert to beautiful landscapes and even more! Every place we went to was entirely different from each other and each has it's own separate memories and it was incredible!
One thing I'll mention is that this tour is actually made up of 4 smaller tours which not many people know:
the wild western (the whole tour), western highlights (leave people in vegas), california highlights (pick up in vegas), and la to the bay (leave people in san fran
some people on these tours, particularly western and california highlights either felt like they were being left behind or joining an already tight group
what i will say is everyone still had a great time and made friends for life as everyone was so friendly and willing to meet people!
Contiki also organised easy ways for us to get around, particularly helpful in san francisco - even on coach free days we got to see the whole city for free transportation

A wonderful trip. Great tour guide, lots of extra activities. Fab people, a trip I will NEVER forget!!! The early mornings were worth it :)
Accommodation was fine, Vegas - amazing! San Francisco - not what I expected, absolutely brilliant. I would happily do this whole tour again!!
The name sums it up - it is definately a wild western trip!!!

Was worth every cent, great accommodation, great tours, tour guide and coach driver were excellent, id recommend to do the full 14 days if you have the time,, the views at yosemite national park were priceless, there is a fair bit of waiting on the bus, and definitely pack warm gear in may, as we were surprised with snow at the grand canyon again a price less site. Vegas was maybe a day too short to explore, but alot of fun at night.
