      The trip was everything I expected. Wonderful accommodations (except one ). Our bus driver and tour guide were excellent. The itinerary was well planned. I recommend Go American Tours for carefree travel.
      By Donna T for YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK on Sep 21, 2023
      Donna, thank you so much for your recent "5 Star Review" of American Tours and your "Yellowstone Tour". Based on other reviews we are getting on Google for this same tour, it appears this was a wonderful time had by all. In your review, you mention that one of the hotels did not meet your expectations. We are hoping you have noted this hotel on your survey that was mailed to you. We do like receiving a good "pat on the back" but we also like to know and need to know when we have areas of opportunity. We hope to see you on another one of our tours real soon. Thanks Again ... Donny Roach / American Tours

      Hello Jeanie ... THANK YOU for your kind words regarding AMERICAN TOURS and your recent BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK TOUR. Based on the TOUR SURVEYS we are receiving back through the mail as well as the number of "5 STAR REVIEWS" we have received on this tour, it appears this tour was a HUGE SUCCESS. We had not planned on promoting this tour again for 3-5 years. However, based on feedback from this years tour, we are in the process now of evaluating those surveys, making a few changes, and preparing another BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK TOUR for early 2024. Thank you again for your feedback ... and we certainly look forward to having you on any of our tours again. Donny Roach / American Tours

      The Ark Encounter should not be missed! It’s such an experience that gives you so much to think about. American Tours were perfect professionals. Besides that they know how to have fun!
