"The optional tours were really nice and very well organized. We felt that we were able to see more than if we were trying to find it ourselves Thank you for some great choices on our tour. We have really enjoyed both YMT vacations and have told a lot of friends and family so I hope some of them contact you. Thank you for our personal evening before the parade. The meal was great and so was the information on the parade. We were impressed you helped at the parking lot and that we got to meet you!"

"This was our second tour with YMT Vacations. Both experiences were very pleasurable. A great vacation at a reasonable price. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in Feb. 2015 on YMT's 4 Island Hawaiian Tour. The Rose Parade had been on our bucket list for a number of years. YMT's prices allowed us to take both of these trips. We have been very satisfied with our experiences traveling with YMT Vacations."

"I just want you to be aware that I really did enjoy this tour...The Rose Parade experience was excellent, especially the viewing before parade day, and the rest of the trip heading north to San Francisco was really fun. "

"One of best trips we've had. Hotels, California coast, side trips to local spots, and extra trips were great. Appreciated the knowledgeable tour guide, and the high presence of many of the company office people. Know who I am talking with on the phone when next calling. Would have liked more time in Solvang as it was somewhat crowded but a place with so much to see. Looking forward to our Fall trip this year."

"We have been on a lot of trips ( traveling by ourselves) and on several other group tours. Although this was a larger group tour than we usually take, we were very pleased with the trip. We would rate it as one of our best vacations! We felt the price we paid was a great value for all that we were able to see and do during the ten day tour. We were very happy with everything on the trip. The YMT staff was great and the accommodations were very nice. Plus, we saw a lot more than if we had traveled by ourselves, because we have been to California four other times on road trips and saw more this trip than ever before. "
