I had been working for 2 weeks without a break and eventually took a one day bus tour to New York to Washington DC. This transport facility was air conditioned and there was a professional tour guide. Now, I confidently say 1 day tours are wonderful to see such prominent places.

Nothing’s like unwinding at the Washington DC. My family and I had great fun. We explored the Capital City completely in a 1-day guided tour. We visited Madam Tussauds wax museum so much more, it so much to grasp on, the fun, the excitement, the view, words cannot describe it. This GoldenB...usTours package is ultimate fun and affordable.

One day tours are always good and one can possibly enjoy a lot. Golden Bus Tours offered us special discounts on buying 3 tickets. The price of the ticket of best bus tours is quite and one could easily take the tour they want to. We departed from New York in an early Morning and spend the whole day exploring Washington DC, which was fun.

I had a very pleasant experience on going on this 1 day New York to Washington dc tour. Actually, I was on a very short trip and this tour with Golden bus came as a boon to me. I just got this booked and visited almost all the important places such as Lincoln War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Oval Office, Capitol Hill, Madame Tassaud’s Wax Museum and also Air & Space museum. This guided tour was really exceptional and our guide was perfect in giving us details about each place.

My family and I truly enjoyed in this visit. We were very excited for the DC and had an extraordinary time in spite of the fact that it was kinda cold. Special shoutout to the patient and very much educated tour guide who worked admirably! A debt of gratitude is in order for everything! For every kind of food preferences they had an option and worked well for us. The guide could arrange it all and would love to try GoldenBusTours again!
