It was an amazing tour. 10 days of continuous fun. The over quality of the hotels was amazing. I was not expecting good quality accommodation at this price. Secondly, everything was organized perfectly on the tour. Our bus driver and tour guide were the best people. They made us laugh throughout the tour with their silly yet funny jokes. I will definitely book my East Coast tour with GoldenBusTours. Thank you so much for making it a memorable time for my family.
I have never taken any bus tours like; the bus services, hotels, destinations were extraordinary. I appreciate this tour to the fullest since it had everything that tourists could ever require. Great Tour. Also, I like to mention some of best experiences, we loved the Yellowstone Park, the efforts of our tour guide were appreciable, he guided us and helped us to every bit possible. Utah, Wyoming, California, all places were wonderful to tour. Plus, I felt like we got to explore that Olympic Village but it was alright because we had other best sites on schedule. Long Live America!
at the start of the tour, I wondered if we were going to make stops for food and relaxation because I couldn’t risk that with my kids. However, by experiencing this extensive bus tour I happy to admit that the tour was well-managed by the team. My husband and I loved the time in Napa Valley, Yosemite National Park, and on the last day, we spent at the Disneyland Park where my kids just enjoyed a lot and put their full energy to favorite rides, and they then fell asleep on the way back on the flight. It was great family-friendly bus tour! Cheers.
