at first I was thinking that I might not enjoy my day at this Olympic National Park, probably because I didn’t really know much about it. But thanks to this journey and my friends who made my day so wonderful. Olympic National Park is so big and I remember we reached there in a morning time when there were quite a few people around. I mean, it was so wonderful to see the stunning isolated nature all by myself. The ferry ride on the way back to Seattle was a real awesome idea. Thank you so much for this wonderful tour!
the tour bus drove us to the Olympic National Park in a morning. I admit that the park is one of the most wonderful locations in the country but I departed on this tour mostly because I thought they will guide us to every single location and we will have fun. But it wasn’t the way I thought it would be but we just self-explored it mostly. They told us that they will take us to the see the hurricane ridge but suddenly they changed their plan and we missed that also. We also missed the ferry ride on the way back to the Seattle. But the park overall is really amazing. I will try to take a tour on my own. Thanks for your service.
I would really like to thank my friend who had referred me to Golden Bus Tours, I had many tours with different agencies before, But really Golden Bus Tours is by far one of the best agencies i have dealt with, very organized and their customer service is excellent. I would also like to thank the tour guide who was really helpful guy and he was very professional and well educated. i was really happy about that package.
The best thing we loved about that tour is the tour guide. Our tour guide was really a great guy. He was very helpful and very professional yet so friendly and funny at the same time. Our bus was clean and comfortable though there was no bathroom available so we had to stop for breaks.
The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly, yet very professional at the same time, we really loved Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, and The Olympic National Park
The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay and even during the tour we were right on schedule, it was a great effort from the tour guide who was a great guy by the way. The bus was really comfortable. and we really enjoyed that day a lot
Not only was the price great but the bus gave us a more personalized experience of seeing all the sightseeing. I enjoyed a lot with our guide. Definitely recommend this 1-Day Seattle/Renton to Olympic National Park and Lake Crescent Tour .
It was our third time in Seattle and we wanted to show our senior parents around. They made us and my parents feel like family. It was an unimaginably amazing experience for me because the tour guide made my parents feel so happy.
