Day 8 - Happy Trails!
We spent a leisurely breakfast chatting with our newly made friends and enjoying our last plate of food together before boarding the motorcoach one final time for the hour ride to the airport. One last bus ride
The Grand Junction airport is very small (ie no restaurant). Some of our group purchased 'take away' lunches from the hotel, and many - like us - grabbed snacks at the airport store to tide us over until we got to larger airports. Either way, my tip of the review is: be prepared for it.
In conclusion, for me the best part of this tour were the places we visited. And, while I probably would have gone to Sedona and the Grand Canyon on my own, I don't think I'd have seen Arches National Park (a very special place) if I hadn't done this tour. So, for that reason at least, I have to be glad ultimately that I went.
Who would I recommend this tour for?
People who like barbecues and meat as the mainstay of their diet.
People who don't consider themselves "foodies" (Ie aren't concerned about food preparation and presentation).
People who don't care how much time they spend in a bus as long as someone else is driving.
People who love Nature.
People who don't have a strong interest in understanding Native American culture in depth.
And, if I might make a suggestion... If you are interested in an Adventures by Disney tour in the US that focuses on the outdoors and Nature, check out our Wyoming tour review: Quest for the West It was wonderful!
Will I ever do another Adventures by Disney tour.. or am I soured forever? We have reservations for the London/Paris (with a side trip to Disneyland Paris) in May, 2010. I have to believe that - with an experience of 5 excellent tours and only 1 that left me wanting to get off the bus - this was a fluke of a variety of variables. So, we will go again (with just a couple trips to Disney World in the meantime to get back the Disney Magic) Who knows, maybe I'll see some of y'all there.. that would be FUN!
