Taking out some break from the busy schedule and going on such short one day trip can do the trick like it did for me. I will recommend it to my colleagues too. Now I am feeling energised to resume my work.
Regular routine needs a break and so this bus tour package for one day seemed interesting. Once you pay, it is done; they take care of everything the sightseeing, cherry blossom and more. A perfect package at a reasonable price.
This is one of the best tours that I was able to find to tour so many places in just one day. We got to see Cherry Blossom, Washington DC and more. We got the best deal for $34.30 each and the under $150 we were able to check out everything at our own pace. Nothing was rushed. The trip was great and we had a great time. I’d give GoldenBusTours thumbs up for being able to arrange such an impressive and detailed tour at such affordable price. Everything was superb.
If you want to tour Cherry Blossom, Washington DC and NY in just $34.30 i.e. if you are an individual traveler, you should opt for bus tours with GoldenBusTours. The company is one of the best tour organizers that I have ever seen. Its got everything that you ever need, great bus services, good conditioned buses and a very helpful tour guide. I was quite impressed with the service we received. Will definitely recommend it to everybody.
New York to Washington and Cherry Blossom tour made my trip seamlessly perfect. It was my first trip with GoldenBusTours and the tour complemented my excitement. I am very much impressed by GoldenBusTours We got to see and experience each and everything that was stated. We had a great time I’m definitely booking my other tours with GoldenBusTours
Great one day trip which covers the greater part of the essential destinations. The cruise also is a significant long one and should be possible away with investing more energy.I cherished this visit. Our guide was amazing. In spite of the fact that it was a long visit, it was great guided and sensational. Inside multi day, we saw all the real attractions. I had an incredible time! I profoundly recommend this visit to all individuals out there who haven't been to D.C.!
Our family reserved this visit from New York. The guide, sent us an update and guidance instant message a night prior to we began the visit. Lengthy drive, yet our family had a decent time to appreciate numerous attractions in various spots. Client oriented I praise them for their fantastic administration.
I traveled with my wife and 1 year old son (I know it was a tough decision); but if you prepare yourself with baby food requirements, you can do it. There is no doubt about how beautiful this tour is. Tour of life-time. Wonderful support from guide and driver. I really loved how both guys supported us. I have no words, I just recommend with 10/10.
The best tour I had been to was so amazing, the bus was clean and comfortable, the people were friendly, the tour guide jayant was the best, he was crystal clear on his work, directions and communications, so I went ahead and book another tour for next week, hoping it will be amazing again, thanks golden bus tour for the wonderful experience, see you soon.
This was my first experience with the tour bus. There were times when the places visited were so interesting, that I wished there was more time allowed to enjoy the visits. A lot of places were covered in such a short span of time. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
