Adam was right on time in picking us up. He asked us what we had already seen and what we were interested in, then he customized the route based on what we told him. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. He really made the day fun. Aside from the tour guide stuff you’d expect, he also had a vast knowledge of restroom locations that served our large group of apparently heavy water consumers well. I can’t imagine how we could have had a better day.

We had a great experience at Yosemite! Our tour guide, Adam, was familiar with the park and we were able to see so much! The accomodations were great and everything was well organized and smooth - all we had to do was show up and enjoy the beautiful park - a very relaxing and memorable vacation!

LOOK NO FURTHER! THEY WILL EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS Our Napa, Alcatraz, Russian River Valley and Yosemite experience with Golden Horizon. Napa Valley has been on our bucket-list for a while, we finally made it to Napa, and we stayed at Solage resort located in northern Napa Valley. The hotel is very elegant and located in a peaceful location near Calistoga. As for sightseeing, we booked multiple private wine tours with Golden Horizon Travel. Our awesome tour guide, Adam, took us to new and exclusive wineries each day, in and around Napa Valley. We also had a wine and food pairing in Sonoma and Napa Valley. The wineries we visited and the wines we had exceeded our expectations. With Adam, we felt like travelling with a friend, he never finished the tour as scheduled, he always added more time to our daily trips and made us feel like a family. We were really glad to book multiple private tours with this company, we had a hot air balloon ride scheduled during the weekend, but we could not fly due to wind and weather conditions. However, the next day, we took off from Yountville, and had one of the best sunrises ever. It’s an exciting and fun experience. Adam is an expert photographer and took a lot of beautiful photos of us, he later shared them with us. This was an amazing experience we will never forget. We wanted to see the big redwood trees and decided to skip Muir Woods and visit the Russian River Valley wineries and Redwoods. The choice of wineries there was a great fit for our taste, we visited DeLoach, Gary Farrell and Merry Edwards Winery. We love pinots and enjoyed awesome wines there. Last, we spared one more day to visit Yosemite national park during our stay in the Bay Area. We had a long day private trip with a nice tour guide, his name is Gerard. He was kind enough to take us on a hike to see the big sequoias after visiting the Yosemite Valley. We are surprised by the beauty and majesty of Yosemite, but a one-day trip doesn’t do justice to Yosemite - I recommend at least 2 or 3 day. Our last day took us from Napa to Alcatraz, and then, we got dropped off at SFO and then flew back home to Guatemala City. Thank you for the memories! We highly recommend this travel company and Adam; you won’t be disappointed. \ Ramiro A. and Irma Lopez

Mary McGarvey was our tour guide and we had very informed and fun trip from San Francisco to Big Sur, Carmel and ultimately Hearst Castle. Marys 'Janis Joplin-like' features (don't tell her I said that) only added to her excellent background info at all points. She seemed ready to regal us on any other stop that we could have chosen along the way. I learned so much from Mary as a representative of Golden Horizon Tours, her surrender to the field of "tour guide", her passionate knowledge of California but was especially impressed with getting to know the person behind it all. Sincerely, Jay-Justin Peek
