    • We loved California it is a beautiful State.

      • Service
        We enjoyed our tour of California with Colette Tours. Our driver w as excellent and the tour guide went beyond expected to let us all feel welcome and have a great time. Our only real complaint was the Pepper Tree Inn in Santa Barbara. We felt it was seedy and too well worn and really needed a makeover. I only slept on top of the bed because I didn't feel comfortable getting under the covers. Other than that Hotel the rest of the choices were fabulous. We probably will never take another bus tour (it was our first). We didn't fare well with the getting up so early . We didn't know what to expect/. The bus was comfortable and since there were only 21 passengers on the bus, we were able to have our own window seat at all time. California is a beautiful state and I am glad we have the opportunity to see it.

    • California coast bus trip

      • Service
        Their assistance in planning the trip and their communication prior to travel was excellent. I had never taken a bus trip like this before and probably would not do this type of vacation again. It was too many hours each day on the bus and not enough time in some of the locations. I had hoped the bus would be more comfy, but It felt like traveling in coach on a plane.
      • Tour
        We saw quite a few sights, however, I would have liked to have had more than one night in Yosemite and Monterey. There was virtually no time to do any exploring on our own. The highlights of the trip for me were the city tour of San Francisco, the tram ride at 6PM in Yosemite and the side tour of LA with the tour of the Dolby Theatre. The accommodations were excellent in San Francisco, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Pasadena. The accommodations in Yosemite were rustic. I would strongly suggest that in the future welcoming dinners be located in a restaurant or facility that can provide a private room, so travelers can meet face to face, introduce themselves and mingle. We introduced ourselves on the bus during the journey to Yosemite and we were unable to see who was speaking. Because of this and the fact that most people did not wear their name tags, we did not become a cohesive group until several days into the trip.
    • Too much to see in not enough time.

      • Service
        Welcome dinner poorly planned. Restaurant was not conducive for introducing all 27 members. It was done on the bus 2 days later and could not see the people behind you. Not enough free time with only one night in Yosemite and Monterey. On the go from 6:30am until arriving at lodging until 5pm or later. Best Western in Santa Barbara was best accommodations with nicest amenities including on site restaurant.
      • Tour
        Best experience was the Tram ride at 6pm in Yosemite. Seems we spent most of every day on the bus. Early starts and large settling in at accommodations.
