Has anyone done the National Trip by Trafalgar? It starts in Salt Lake, travel to the Tetons,Yellowstone and ends in Rapid City ?
We haven't had many Trip Reports on the Yellowstone forum for coach tours including Trafalgar tours. I did do a search and came up with this older one :
see post #3
These parks are pretty easy to drive yourself in and we can help with trip planning on the Wyoming and South Dakota forums. It's a full days' drive between Yellowstone and Black Hills but if you have 14 nights you can make a nice loop out of Denver.
My only problem with the tours is that they miss so much as their time is so short in all the parks. They are fine for a quick overview.
If you do decide on a tour do choose one of the big companies like Trafalgar, Caravan, Tauck, Road Scholar. Be really, really careful about the low-end tours that are pitched as *bilingual*. Reviews on them are generally awful.
Thank you so very much! I really appreciate your prompt reply
Thank you so very much for your quick reply!
I work as a tour guide and my friend does theTrafalgar tour. Caravan is pretty budget and Tauck one of the higher end companies. Most itineraries have some good and bad points. What I suggest is to post the actual itinerary of the tour your thinking of and post in the forum for that tour. Understand that most on TA will say 'just do it yourself' but I do 14 tours a yr for over 13 yrs and can tell you that 99% have been wonderful groups of travelers. The stereotype of people that have never been on a tour is a far cry from reality. Also the Clientele will vary a lot between different tour companies. Good luck in the search.
Thank you for the information, it is truly appreciated! We have never traveled in that area before so the ihput ifrom TA forums is a great benefit! Thanks again!
