Mr. Randy Fay counseled me that there was no guarantee that there would be another Spectacular Canyons and National Parks Tour in early June which was closer to our actual 50th Wedding Anniversary. We learned from Tashia, our GET Tour Director that the early May tour was in fact a first trial tour of this type tour. While we enjoyed our tour with Tashia and the places we visited, we were disappointed that we toured at a time in the late Spring when there is an abundance of rain, fog and snow in most of the places we toured. Had Mr. Fay not counseled us to sign up for this early Spring Tour and had there been (do you have the same tour scheduled for early to mid-June?) an early June tour as shown in your catalog we might have enjoyed the Grand Canyon and our anticipated, but cancelled due to weather conditions, fixed wing airplane flight around the Grand Canyon. At age 82, and having health issues, including Lymphoma Cancer, it is extremely unlikely I'll ever have another opportunity to see the Grand Canyon in sunlight instead of fog and clouds. One additional point, your housing at the Buffalo Bill Park Line Shacks was abysmal. The shacks were barely large enough for two people and our luggage and was substandard in that no one would rate it even a One Star let alone your catalog's guaranteed Two and Three Star hotels, etc. I came home from the tour with a bad Sinus and throat cold due to the extreme weather and unheated (initially) condition of the Buffalo Bill Park Line Shacks when we arrived on site. Eight days later (in part due to my compromised Immune System [Chemotherapy], I am still fighting an infection in my left eye due to the Sinus infection and a head cold that began the last few days of the tour and was not helped by the howling winds and low temperatures we encountered in MT and S.D. The tour itself was overall fine. It was the time of year that was not fine!

Some were very good such as the Snake River Float, the Covered Wagon Supper and Show at Jackson, WY and the Buffet Supper at the top floor Banquet Room at the Mormon Temple Square in UT. Most of the other options were average and one was mediocre (the Indian supper and amateur Indian dancers). We were pleased with the Tour Director's and Driver's decision to revisit the Crazy Horse National Monument since it was so cloudy and fogged-in the afternoon they originally took us there that no one could even see the monument in progress, let alone take pictures of it.

The trip had exciting places to see, excursions allowed interactions, bus driver and tour director were friendly and very helpful with information about the scenery. Highly recommend this trip for those not familiar with roads and places. Tour director provided great information as to geology, social, economic, and technological developments during the expansion West. GET relieved much stress with a well planned itinerary that included hotels, food and historical places that made a memorable adventure.
Vacation
The tour allows the best opportunity to enjoy all the sites for a great price.
