We group of three friends were planning for a trip in our holidays, one of my friend was from Germany and it was his responsibility to pick any tour of quality. He decided to go with this bus tour service. I did not argue and simply decided to go along because he took a long to decide this standard bus tour. After joining this trip it did not allow me to argue for a single second regarding any aspect. From start to finish it was fantastic. I loved the experience of the Mist cruise ship on the Niagara River. 5 stars all the way. Great days and great fun!! Highly recommended.

My parents and I were planning a tour for the entire family, then we came across this bus tour deal on the internet, which definitely seemed quite reasonable in the start due to the number of attractions, transportation, hotels, and more importantly, we had a stay at Niagara Falls for more than a day. I loved how they treat their guests regardless of where they came from, the tour guide helped us out by so many means, and we were quite satisfied with the bus tour for what they offered us on a reasonable price. The bus tour was absolutely amazing, thanks a lot!

The best tour of my life. It was the prettiest sunset, sunrises along with views of waterfalls. Nature has surly a power to capture the visitors in its remarkable beauty and I experienced that even more during the night time charm of Niagara Falls. I must say that tour guide happened to be instant friend of my family. He was a friendly man with relaxed nature. All in all it was a tremendous experience that started from emails and then after I enjoyed it every day. I do not think so that I can recommend this tour because golden bus tour is decidedly enough. I wish there was an option of 6 stars but for now easily deserving 5 stars. Thanks a lot for lovely memories!

Our guide was a fun man and I found him like a man who has a great love in his heart and passion for country along with a refreshing attitude. Talking about any single destination is like talking about much information from him. Secret Caverns were just amazing to visit and information regarding this was really interesting. Bus expected and seemed to be comfortable and proved to be very same. I felt so free and easy with proper management of this epic tour. I must say that American bus tours are worth mentioning and a golden bus is one of them. Thanks a lot with high recommendations because such chances of the excellent tour must never be ignored. Memorable days!

The guide explained how many architecturally noteworthy buildings have been renovated in a beautiful way. He was so well informed about all natural beauty of historical places. Eating places were really appreciable. I found trendy restaurants. I loved the taste of food wherever I stopped to eat. We were served with perfect services. It was a good start with impressive golden bus tour that also ended in a nice way. I enjoyed the visited places like Niagara Falls and Secret Caverns and felt so stress free. Thanks a lot.

I am from New York and I have experienced many walking tours. I decided to join bus tour this time. It was surly a tour of fun. It was that entertaining as much as I wished. We stopped at many places and those stops were amazingly planned where we clicked, ate and had fun. Destinations were also very beautiful and the exceptions were Secret Caverns. I was impressed by the energy of driver as how he covered many places with proper timing and high level of energy. Big thanks to the whole team for putting together their efforts for such an ambitious trip.

I like the tour because it had everything for us already planned and accommodated which include the hotels, stops, and buses. At first, the tour didn’t feel like it was going to so amazing as we were expecting, however, as we entered the Niagara Falls park, there was actually so much to do. The Boat cruise, Cave of the Winds, and we finally witnessed all the three major falls at the park. They offered us some optional add-on tour to go farther from the falls but we chose to stay in the park miss the add-on tour, although some friendly passengers mentioned that the Old Fort was really wonderful located around the Lake Ontario. Good weekend!

We had a brilliant trip and the entire timing in this trip was fun and only fun. All the hours with our guide were just fantastic because we found a man with lots of local knowledge; we had a great chat over there. It is one of the best ways to learn and to make fun at the same time. Real feel of amazing destinations along with historical fragrance. One can have the best time as we had. Visits of the Old Fort Niagara and Whirlpool State Park were really exceptional. Thanks to golden bus tour for providing proper pick and drop along with a good guide. 4 stars only for the reason that improvements are always required and such improvements make anything best amongst the all. Thanks!
