Look no further if you have difficulty managing resources and funds on a trip and you need someone to do it for you. Golden Bus Tours is the trip organizers to contact in the event that you are searching for affordable, stress free recreational trips. Indeed, even the smallest issue that did emerge on my trip with them was dealt with brilliantly by our guide, Aisha. I'm most likely going to arrange my future trips with this company.
My brother recommended a one day weekend trip from Boston to New York &Empire State building. We booked it with Golden Bus Tours and by God it was the most well organized and extremely affordable trip we've ever been to. Everything from the one day sightseeing, to the Empire State view, we made amazing memories on this trip. Thank you Golden Bus Tours.
As it happens typically amid road trips, I wind up blundering cash and assets. I as of late attempted to book a one day trip with Golden Bus Tours. It was mind-bogglingly amazing with highly affordable rates. I can safely say that i had my money's worth of fun and gained astonishing experiences along the way. Having to not stress over overseeing resources, like on road trips, this was the most tension free trip I have ever had-Highly recommended.
This was indeed an unforgettable 1 day tour. I just planned this all of a sudden and went on this tour with my friend. We enjoyed the sightseeing tour, though we were not new to this place. Sitting comfortably and going on a tour enjoying panoramic views is marvelous.

As I planned my trip to NYC, I wanted to think of a way that would allow me to see so many sites. I could have gone the historical route but I wanted to see what was important to me....landmarks that were in comic book movies! Yes, I value pop culture knowledge over history any day.
I won\'t dish on the stops we made so as not to ruin it for the next person-- but I will tell you to go and enjoy yourself; and make sure you don\'t have somewhere to be afterwards in case the tour takes a bit longer than expected. I highly recommend GoldenBusTours.
What was supposed to be one day bus tour turned into 6 hours of laughing, talking, learning, and just having fun. The tour guide is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He knows his history about each place he speaks about, and more importantly he also knows the business owners whom he features on the tours.
I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.
