It is quite unfortunate that I went on this trip at a time when the weather was very poor. The place was still very beautiful nevertheless but we had to stay indoors for most of the trip. However, our guide’s stories were very interesting and informative. Everything from the booking, to the bus, to the hotel was perfect but the weather put a damper on the whole experience. I plan to go back; this time hopefully the weather will have some mercy.

I booked a bus ticket online 3 days before the trip for my family. The information provided on Golden Bus Tours website is accurate as we visited all the places they said we would visit and arrived at the exact time they said they would. Their services were exemplary and the trip was very educational.

This was a very amazing and relaxing 2 day trip at the Acadia National park. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. Our bus driver seemed to know the area very well and had a lot of interesting story to tell us about the places and occurrences in the area. This was exactly what we needed in order to rejuvenate. Try it, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Everything about this trip was awesome, from reasonable rates to luxurious buses. The schedule was magnificently arranged and they gave us so many eating place options to choose from for lunch. Indeed, even the littlest of protestations were dealt with by our amazing guide. All in all this trip was definitely a 10/10

This planned trip gave me a markdown of $23 from the initial price; who doesn't like to save money. Other than that the trip was astonishing. The one night stay was at an astounding lodging which had luscious nourishment to offer. The trip aide was amazing and he was super useful as well. The schedule was brilliantly arranged and carried as it let me take in the landscape and take some astound photographs in the process as well.

This tour was very fantastic. There was so much to do and learn. Time was the only limiting factor in this trip. The services provided by Golden bus were superior, the hotel was a very state-of-the art 4 star hotel and the activities to do were endless. Beautiful sand beaches, panoramic views from the top of the mountain, great hiking trails and amazing shorelines are just some of the things we loved seeing and doing on this trip.

I always use trains or hire taxis to reach places. Today in this bus tour package, I loved everything that I do not wish to return back home. This was a 2 day package and they took us to so many lovely places that we cannot imagine visiting by ourselves in this time.

For a2 Day inter-state trip, it usually takes lots of money. Thanks to Golden Bus Tours generally affordable rates, I and my friends were able to travel at an extremely affordable rate. Not only that, we were travelling with a camera guy, which let us create amazing pictures of us. Golden Bus Tours is always going to be my first preference while booking tours now.

I went on this tour with my friends. Due to the excellent tour service in an economical package by Golden Bus Tour they satisfied everybody with their quality tour guide and service. We explored Acadia National Park with harbor cruise. Great hotel stays. I liked that.

The amazing rates per person on these tours are absolute genius. I for the most part need to pay additional on trips like these with my wife and two children, yet this low rate offer permitted us to bring our children for reduced amount of money. We had an amazing time over these 2 days. The pre-arranged visits on this trip were astonishing and left us cheerful.

I have travelled with this company many times before and I totally trust their services. The trip is amazingly executed. They let you take in your surroundings and make amazing memories at one spot before taking you to the next, unlike other trip arrangers who just whisk you around to meet their schedule. I definitely recommend Golden Bus Tours to all those who want travelling at an affordable rate.
