Featured multi-day tour group recommended
Although it is the natural landscape and national park adjacent to Las Vegas, most of the scenic spots are still about 4-5 hours from Las Vegas.If you choose to drive by yourself, you may be tired and spend a lot of time driving and driving. The advantage of participating in the local multi-day group is that the route, itinerary and transportation are arranged properly, and there is no need to worry about renting cars, insurance, self-driving conditions and unfamiliar routes. In addition, the Chinese guides of the team can assist in any problem at any time.
Most of the one-day tours are operated by medium and large buses. Due to the large number of people, the number of pick-up points is also slow. The trip that could have been completed in 12 hours may take an hour to pick up at the time of departure and another hour to return. If the budget permits, we will recommend a chartered car (a customizable itinerary) or a small group. The small group is usually a high-top car (Bristol or Ford) with 7 Man Van, or 12-15 Seat.
On the whole, the small group may pay more money but the quality of the tour is greatly improved. I want to see all the small boutiques (single day/multi day), pleaseClick here to go to Tufeng.com
Due to the numerous products on the way (and many products have been discontinued but not removed), we have compiled the most recommended multi-day group for your reference.
The price of all tour groups does not include the tip of the tour guide on the day unless otherwise specified. If it is an English group, the tip is about 6~10 per person, and the Chinese group is about one person 8~10. It is generally not possible to bring a large suitcase to the car for a one-day tour. It must be hosted in the hotel in advance.
