Purchasing this tour I thought was a great option as it showed more than the attractions that the entire world go to. It showed true America in the perfect light. Over the 14 days I saw Bryce National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Custer State Park, Red Canyon, Zion National Park and Mojave Desert. All these places and so much more which was a great spend I believe, however I did wish that there would be more inclusions in the price and a lot of the meals I needed to purchase and there were a hell of a lot of ME Times which I did which I felt could be included to make the trip that much better.
Overall though there was two thing I didn't agree with and that is the included dinner while staying in Cody. This was false advertising as the included dinner was just $15.00 been given back to us to spend wherever. This practically meant you were giving back our money that we gave you and saying that you just go out and spend the money you gave us. It was also a kick in the face as it costs double that for a normal dinner meal, it would be okay if this money was for lunch but for dinner that was just disgusting. The other issue was some of the hotels we stayed at were absolutely disgusting and I believe you should look at them. For example, Kanab, was ran by a 10 year old boy, the rooms weren't even ready when we arrived (which meant 5 of us girls had to get ready in the smallest motel room known to man) and the rooms were really really dirty. This was a disgusting room to stay at and Contiki should really assess this as it is not a place I would want my company associated with.
Besides these two points I did think I spent my money well and the ME Time optionals were great however once again with these I wasn't happy that I spent $10 for a wedding that not all of us were actually involved in. This would of been great for the two involved but for everyone else not so much.
