“I thought the entire trip was well planned. No complaints. This was a very nice tour. Our first with Caravan but not our last, very good value for your travel dollar. Very good trip, very congenial fellow travelers. Our tour guide was very caring. There was beautiful scenery. I appreciated the fact that additional activities were not pushed at us.

Mr. & Mrs. D.M., Satellite Beach, Florida

“This was a great trip and I hope I can take another Caravan tour sometime in the future. All of the meals on the tour were wonderful. The sheer number and selection of the places visited were WELL worth the money. Very illuminating, myth bustin' and educational. Our tour director was highly motivated and excited about the tour. He was very professional and always on top of departure schedules, luggage handling, meal tickets, etc... He always tried to keep a running commentary on the sights, history, footnotes, etc..., while on the bus. I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone who has never visited that part of the country, and would like to see as many national treasures in the shortest amount of time.”

Mr. & Mrs. M.F., Staten Island, New York

“A great tour, many of the sites only visited through pictures are brought to life.”

Mr. & Mrs. D.P., Salem, Massachusetts

“Would recommend our tour director to anyone. He was interested in us learning. He would periodically ask questions and/or quiz us on places we visited.

He was very engaging and caring without being overbearing.”

Mr. J.R., Glen Allen, Virginia

“For anyone who is in awe of our National Parks, you should go on a Caravan tour to Yellowstone/Mt. Rushmore. The beauty and wildlife of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons take your breath away. The evidence of nature from forest fires to re-growth in Yellowstone is something you can't explain, you have to see it. Not to forget to mention the creation of Mt. Rushmore and what that means to us as Americans, or the awesome work in progress of Crazy Horse monument. Little Big Horn Battlefield was fascinating. So much on the tour is covered so well.”

Mr. & Mrs. J.D., Houston, Texas

“Keep up the good work. I like the eight and nine day tours since I am still working and have limited vacation days.”

Ms. M.H., Elkhart, Indiana

“The hotels were all fine, 'check-ins' and luggage to the room as fast as you would want. The breakfast buffets were more than enough. The sightseeing and activities more than met our expectations on all points. The tour director used a perfect balance of informative talk and quiet time! Utilization of videos to give background or set the tempo was excellent. The trip was all we had hoped to see of this part of the country. Would recommend Caravan to others and I hope to take another trip in the future.”
