Adventure Caravan and Fantasy Tours both have a good reputation. We did the Grand circle of the western National parks with Adventure. I would not hesitate to do another tour with either company.
Pros: everything is planned for you, camp ground reservations, the more interesting routes, things to see along the routs, etc. We went on some excursions that we would normally not have gone on if alone but turned out to be great memories. Another plus is the comradery of being with a group.
Cons: they travel a little faster than we would normally travel but not to the point of feeling rushed.
They are a little expensive but considering that the prices includes all CG fees, some meals, some excursions, and all of the planning I feel it is worth it.
We will do another one.

THanks Selah! You were satisfied with camping choices? YOu felt like you got your money's worth with tour choices? DId you have to drive MH or toad to any of the attractions, or was transportation provided? DId you feel like bus tours were comfortable? DId you do river rafting? THanks for your help. I think you went on the one we are considering. WAs frontier says in Cheyenne enjoyable.

Dave. I felt we got our monies worth. Could we have done it cheaper, absolutely but I will happily pay the difference again to have everything planned out.
Transportation was provided for some excursions but for most we all car pooled or drove separately.
All of the CGs were nice but not resorts. Because there is so much to do you really just need a place to park the coach for a day or two. All of them were full hook up.
The two (I think) bus tours were fine.
We did not do river rafting on our tour but did do some optional kayaking on the Colorado. River was down but still fun.
Our tour was for 31 days and we had several "free days" where nothing was planned. You need these to just relax or take care of every day business.
BTW: both Adventure and Fantasy pretty much use the same CGs.
