    Collette really knows what they are doing and they do it so well. I travel with my best friend and it is so nice to feel safe during travels and worry free. This was our first tour and it won’t be the last. It is so nice to just show up for the bus and know you were going to have an unbelievable day. I can’t wait until my next adventure with Collette.

    Food options were not good especially for someone with who cared about what they ate. I think it should have been communicated in advance that reasonable accommodations would not be made. I understand if they can’t do to the area but it should have been communicated.

    Too much time in Cody. Boring after the first evening. Repeat next day. Too little time at Yellowstone. That area deserves the 2 days. The food at most of the motels was nothing to remember, except the Holiday Inn. The last motel we stayed in was filthy. We ask for service and nothing. NO SERVICE!! Luckily we had disinfectant wipes and could clean it enough to take a shower and use the toilet. Tour director was very good and did all he could to make our trip enjoyable.

    The tour manager, Kevin, made sure that I was able to do the things he had planned. Even before the tour started he inquired about my health. The tour is a spectacular example of all that the National Parks service offers. We Americans are very lucky that we have this beautiful resource. It is hard to pick a favorite. But an unexpected experience was the pride and awe I felt for the pioneers who settled this country and my heartfelt sympathy for the Native Americans that we displaced,

    Too much off and on the bus and packing and unpacking to move to the next destination. The food selection was not good. Only one hotel accommodations were great. During Covid (which I got on the trip) moving to different seats on the bus, I did not think it was sanitary. Not sure if the bus had good air filtration or used a Lysol spray in between trips. The plane seating was terrible. Couples should have been able to sit together. Some people in our group didn't have a seat on the plane to begin the trip. We all signed up well in advance of the trip.

    Not worth the cost! We paid $640 a day for both of us. The food was mediocre at best, the hotels were nice, hotels I would stay at while traveling but not for the cost of the trip. We could have stayed longer at spots that would have been more memorable then the every 2 hour bathroom break and shopping! The trip was a waste of money, we travel extensively and never spent this much money a day while on a road trip and I’m sure Collette pays less money for the hotels then we would.

    It was a good tour, not excellent. I was disappointed that the raft trip in Jackson Hole was no longer included in this tour. Instead, a visit to an art museum replaced it. That turned out to be mostly wasted time. Rafting seemed to be the thing to do at Jackson Hole in the summer months. That would have been an excellent western experience. The best and most enjoyable "cowboy" thing on the trip was the chuck wagon dinner in Jackson Hole where you ride to the dinner in a covered wagon. There was too much time in Jackson to just walk around the town and shop. We even arrived in Jackson by 1230 PM with nothing planned for that day except to walk around, eat lunch someplace and shop. One couple happened to find out there was a rodeo that evening. I would have been nice if our tour guide had told us about that. There should have been some optional activities to take in Jackson..The Collette brochure for this trip should be revised to eliminate the iconic photo of the red barn in front of the Grand Tetons. You will not see this location on this trip. That spot was apparently not far from where we were but the tour guide said it is not on our itinerary. Really enjoyed seeing Yellowstone. The scenery was beautiful, but animal sightings were disappointing unless you were on the "right" side of the bus. Our hotel in Yellowstone was just a short walk from Old Faithful allowing you to see it several times. However, the most photographed thermal feature, the Grand Prismatic Spring, was a short drive away, but our tour guide told us that was not on the agenda and that there was not room there for a bus to park. A satellite view of that feature shews at least 15 bus parking spaces. Deadwood, SD was a neat town with an excellent local guide. Not enough time there, especially when that is also your lunch stop. That happened at the Cody Museum and Crazy House site as well.

    America's Cowboy Country tour was excellent. Enjoyed all the sites, cities and nation's parks and scenery. Collette's staff was exceptional. Never a question unanswered, professional, polite, and went above & beyond when we got delayed by airlines. A fabulous trip, will be using Collette again.

    Too many to pick one that really stands out. The float trip down the Snake River, the jeep safari through the buffalo herds, the drive through Yellowstone, watching Old Faithful and the guided tour, the stop at a small restaurant selling home made pies, the Badlands, the small church in the Tetons, Wall drug for delicious lunch and malts-can't pick any one thing!

    Tour manager and bus driver had a constant ******* contest the entire time. This turns an otherwise great vacation into a "vacation from hell". With the number of companies that offer guided tours there is absolutely no reason to choose Collette.

    As mentioned above. I am not sure that the ratings should go from "excellent" to "good" to "poor" I would rate some as very good (overall tour) and "average" for example, the Tour Manager. The local guides were excellent, all of them! We saw some beautiful sights!

    Our favorite was the white-water rafting (Dave Hansen) and photos!! Badlands were a BEAUTIFUL surprise ~ grandson climbed them! Mt. Rushmore ceremony at night was outstanding and patriotic! Many from our group are vets and went onstage and were so moved they couldn't talk back on the coach. Great idea to see it at night.(and former tour guide told us to sit upstairs which was better!)

    The Cowboy Tour is an excellent choice. Although there are many spectacular Things to see. The White Water Scenic Raft Ride is a great experience. See the Spectacular scenery of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone is overwhelming. Seeing "Old Faithful" in person after many years of reading and seeing other people's picture is breath taking. Riding across the state of Wyoming is truly amazing when you see the amount of open land. Going to Cody, WY and getting to see the building of the West through the center at Buffalo Bill Cody. Then we were off to Rapid City, SD and many more sites. Deadwood, SD where we got to see more history in Wild Bill Hickcock and to see where he was shot and the ride to MT Moriah Cemetery where Wild Bill and Clamity Jane were burred. It was amazing to see the sites and hear the history of this nation. More to see in the Bad Lands, and the other sites of Buffalo that were up close and personal. They cross the roads in front of cars and buses. You just have to sit tight and let them pass. In Rapid City there is a life side statue of a past president on each corner. Then you get to see MT. Rushmore with the Four Presidents in stone.

    Rafting down the Snake River was definitely a highlight of the trip, as was getting within a few feet of the bison herd on our jeep ride. Seeing 10 bald eagles was a bonus. The scenery is just beautiful, no matter where you look. Enjoyed the entire trip and all of the places which were included. However, I would eliminate Crazy Horse, but leave everything else in. The hotels were very nice with the exception of the accommodations at Yellowstone. There was barely any light in the rooms and the soap was in containers fastened to the sink and the shower wall so they were not moveable and were hard to reach (you couldn't take a bath there). They did have a great breakfast and dinner. As a matter of fact, all of the meals were very good, including those at the two chuck wagon dinners and the entertainment on both these occasions was excellent. I do think this trip should be rated a 2 at least. It is a little more difficult than the 1 which the brochure stated. I did not have a problem, but my traveling companion did as did some of the other people on the trip. Overall it was great!
