It was a truly learning experience, the Amish people how efficiently and comfortably they are managing their lives without any modern technology aids. The tour guide was well versed and explained everything in details.
If you want to travel with comfort, go for the bus tours offered by GoldenBusTours. The company has got luxurious buses that are well maintained and offer the best services to their customers. I really enjoyed our one day tour from NY to Amish County. The tour was well planned and carried out with good detail as well. We got enough time to explore all destinations and had a wonderful experience. I’d give five stars to this amazing tour company.
The entire tour was great. I cant think of anything that I didn’t like. Everything was well planned, organized and well executed as well. There isn’t a better company than GoldenBusTours which can plan and carry out bus tours with such detail. We had an amazing time during our tour. The guide was very helpful as well. He guided us throughout the trip and it was because of him that we got to see the best things Amish County had to offer.
Quality service and well organized is everyone seeks about the tour agency. Golden Bus Tour is the one that offered them and I realized that on this tour. Travelling from New York to Philadelphia, we travelled most of the main attractions. There was a tour guide with us too who was really helpful and informative. I’d definitely recommend the company to everybody.
I have a lot going on my mind and had to visit a list of places that I could not decide. To begin with I am on this tour package that is for one day covering from New York to premium outlets. Once again my favorite place, the outlets.
Visiting New York was my dream and I had planned this tour in advance. The services of Golden Bus Tours were excellent and I found the tour pretty affordable as well. The rates given by Golden Bus Tours were very reasonable and the overall services were also excellent. The company is doing a great job and providing a great service.
This bus tour started silently and but within 2 hours all the passengers became friends. Thanks to the professional tour guide who kept everyone together. The tour was rightly planned and executed. Every detail of the tour was mentioned and as specified we explored the destinations.
My wife was stressing on shopping for few weeks. I decided to book for this tour thinking we can do some duty free shopping and visit some new places too simultaneously.
I was on the internet browsing places and happened to see this bus tour package with good reviews and I booked for it. The tour was more than perfect, but the hotel delayed in giving our keys to our rooms. Rest everything was properly taken care of.
It was a much awaited trip and we had a memorable time. I went on this 1-day tour woth my Girlfriend and we loved this tour. The fall and its evening illumination was an exciting and romantic experience. It was a short tour but it pretty much covered everything there was to see. I would book a longer honeymoon package after marriage to have a much more romantic experience. Thanks GoldenBus!
