Overall a great itinerary at a comfortable pace. Highlight was the accommodation inside the National Parks at Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon. These are NOT 5 star hotels and some on the tour complained of the 'basic' standard forgetting that these are National Park cabins and not the Grand Hyatt....still they were clean and comfortable and only a few steps from the rims. I feel we could have spent one more day at Bryce Canyon as this would allow for some short walks around the park. Lake Powell could be one day instead of 2. A place to use as a base but not much to do there itself once you have done the boat tour.
I was able to go into Page to join a tour through Antelope Canyon - is there a reason why this is not included or offered as an option in the tour? A majestic canyon well worth the effort! I would not waste time going to Cameron Trading Post, very much a 'set-up for tourists' and also contained a lot of products made overseas instead of local work. Native American designs made in China, quite disappointing to see. Our tour guide Larry was most helpful and patient and knowledgeable. He made sure everything ran smoothly for each of us. Meals were always great when included.

Very happy with the Insight tour.
The additional leg room really added comfort. Wifi on the coach was fantastic. Our tour guide Adam Chivers really helped to make our tour, his personality and customer focused communication was very good. Adam's ability to bond a tour group is unique, a diverse group travelled well together.

The Northern Capitals & Russia tour delivered all we expected and more.
We had not been to any of the places on this tour and every experience, while different, was great. The efforts of our Tour Director, Alex, no doubt enhanced all aspects of this trip. The arrangements by Global Journeys, including support with Russian Visas assisted greatly.
