Summer

My Memorable Bus Tour of San Francisco

I am strongly enamored by the breathtaking view around the city and the study atmosphere on campus. I will definitely recommend the summer experience in UCLA to my friends.

Thanks for the help of SAF, I have been in UCLA for two months. Everything in UCLA and Los Angeles is perfect in my mind. To be more specific, I am strongly enamored by the breathtaking view around the city and the study atmosphere on campus. I will definitely recommend the summer experience in UCLA to my friends.

Last weekend, I went to San Francisco for a three-day trip via USA student tour. The appealing views such as Twin Peaks and Golden Gate Bridge really attract me a lot. The most memorable of all is the skyline of San Francisco which we saw twice from Treasure Island and Twin Peaks. Both of the night view and the day view are beautiful scenery, although the weather is a little foggy.

Moreover, we also enjoyed the food in fishermen’s wharf, the bustling scene in the financial district and familiar feeling in Chinatown.

Last but not the least, I really appreciate our tour guide Michael and driver Jimmy who were so friendly and humorous. Michael taught us a lot about the history and system of United States and secured our safety  all  the time. He also encouraged us to experience American culture and be brave to think and practice in English.

Thanks for this enjoyable trip! I think the photos of mine will tell more of the great trip!
