"OMG! It was the BEST experience! On the rest of the tour, I think we had the BEST guide (Joe on bus #18)! He kept us entertained and informed constantly. He went above and beyond normal call of duty and had the patience of a saint. Our driver, Ray, was the greatest. The hotel was amazing, as were the rest of the YMT staff! The only negatives were the cold weather, and I probably had the worst seat at the parade for photography. But, I put my camera down and probably had a better experience. And, I would not fault YMT for that. It really was an incredible trip, thanks to YMT! The YMT staff were amazing, and all the details were top choice."

"I have recommended this tour to a friend and have given her the YMT catalog with next years itinerary. I have spoken with many friends that want to see the parade in person. I have described to them how beautiful the floats were and the YMT tour was just the right amount of time to visit LA for a couple days and attend the parade. "

"There were many people there that my husband and I asked if they had been on other YMT tours. We were pleasantly surprised that they had, e.g., Hawaii, Utah, and other places as well. That in itself says a lot about your company. If I was already retired, my husband and I would most definitely consider another tour sooner. I have another week of vacation left; maybe we will take YMT up on another good package. You met all of our expectations"

"I have traveled with many escorted companies and I really liked all the you information provided up front so I could plan my days and free time and did not have to worry about times and places to meet the bus. You have this trip down. Never saw so many people helping us at every location. Great job everybody. I liked the packet I received with all the departure times listed and information and staff in the hotel to answer questions. Wow you put a lot of time into this tour. I will recommend this tour to family and friends. "

"I enjoyed the experience despite the cold weather. I thought it was a very good experience for the money. Appreciated being close to the parade route so that I was able to get good photos….Tours of LA, the Rose parade float preparation and dinner were very good. Good value for money. Well planned. Organized mostly. Great experience. Better than driving and doing per self."

Beverly H., CA


"This was my first tour with YMT Vacations and this trip was particularly special at this time since I was celebrating my birthday on New Year’s Eve with tours of the LA area and attending the 125th Anniversary of the Rose Parade…all with friends. Also, YMT Vacations took the extra step and surprised me with a lovely birthday gift of a fruit plate and chocolate dipped strawberries. I was so touched by the gesture when I saw it in my room after touring all day. Thanks for taking the time and adding to my birthday in the midst of such a busy schedule and tour."

Carol L., TN


"We were very surprised to see the president of the company on the front lines helping with the tour. I've never seen that before. You always had staff at the hotel to assist us. Very good!"

David K., MN
