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!
Drive drove safely and stuck to schedule (very good) our tour guide was excellent; she was very friendly and organized handling everything. A very enjoyable experience. Excellent tour, very well plan. proper and timely instructions of tour.
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.
The tours are really well planned and I highly recommend this trip. The tours are really well planned and I highly recommend this trip. It was a wonderful tour we had to Niagara Falls and Secret Caverns. Tour guide was a bit confused about the whole planning but overall we are happy to have taken this tour. My mother-in-law also enjoyed the 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!
My wife and I recently returned from our trip to Niagara Falls. Rewind 3 months ago we having no idea where we wanted to vacation. My wife and I are two very busy individuals with very stressful jobs with no time to research destinations and deals. We simply told search on GoldenBusTours our top priorities for vacations and what we hoped to experience.
We had a great time, we liked all the places that we visited and the hotel accommodations were great. Very good service by the guide and driver. I recommend this tour! Great experience to visit Niagara falls and secret Caverns - Thanks to the tour guide from the travels.
well, the maid of the mist was closed which made us really sad, it was just the icy weather conditions at the time, so we couldn’t get to experience those famous cruises on the Niagara River.. there was so much to do at the Niagara Falls for us, first, there were already not many people at the site, it felt like we are on the only one among the very few people who made the effort to come all the way to Niagara Falls by the end of the summer season. Mentioning about the secret Caverns, there was nothing secret about the place, although it’s nice that the authorities have discovered those under group walkways and cave systems.
The hotel was more than I expected. Even though it was raining the second day the driver made us feel very comfortable. The tour was fantastic. It was very well planned. The driver made rest breaks every two hours. As he was driving he would give a history of each town we drove through. I will definitely use GoldenBusTours again.

I really regret that tour, bad organization, and no WIFI on the bus. Also the tour guide's English was horrible! the hotel was clean but not that good, most of the people on the group were Chinese and Indians so we could not communicate very well, so they should really conduct these tours in English only for Americans , other than that of course the places was amazing
It was a really nice tour. The places we saw there was for the first time, so it was really like a dream! I never knew that Niagara Falls was that beautiful, especially Niagara Falls night view, also the maid of mist was great, i just wish the tour guide spoke Indian instead of English and Chinese

A few things to keep in mind. While the bus is lavatory-equipped, they recommend that you do not use it often as it smells and is only cleaned once in a few days. They do stop in rest areas every 2.5 hrs, and in some cases when they have to make time, there has been 3 hr non-stop journey
They stop in rest areas and malls for lunch and dinner. While it is stopped, the driver asks everyone to leave the bus so that he can lock it and go eat himself. This was only a problem for those who brought their own food, as they had no where to eat it when they stopped at a mall The guides were very friendly and courteous. The planning was well done. We had about a hour in fort Niagara and 3 hours in Niagara falls
Niagara Falls was truly a perfect match for us thanks, in no small part, to tour guide. She is extremely good at her job and is a Destination Matchmaker. Ever since our first experience we have used GoldenBusTours exclusively for all of our travel. We have used it for quick trips to NY as well as complex family vacations to Canada. Can't say enough.
Kim N. Rogers
Well to be honest, i was not impressed, sure the places we went to were magnificent and all but there were a couple of things that really bothered us, first the tour guide was not friendly at all, also there was no WIFI on the bus so during that long drive there was no internet connection at all. so over all it was OK but not great
We had such a wonderful time on that tour, me and my family were so happy. we saw a lot of great and amazing places like the great Niagara falls, it was our first time there so we were really impressed, also the cave of Winds was more than great. I would really love if i can join that tour again
This was my first time to see Niagara Falls for real, and Oh my god! such a magical dream! especially the Niagara falls illumination,very romantic, also the Maid of the Mist, Old Fort Niagara , and Cave of the Winds were great, the people were so friendly and happy, the only problem is that most of the peoplr on the tour did not speak good English or French so there were almost no communication at all, but still the tour was great and i would really do it again
Xiu Juan Yü
What an amazing experience! i never thought i could spend such a wonderful time like that! these places were more than magical! This was our first time to see Niagara Falls and it is sooo different than TV! was really a dream, i loved also the tour guide as he was really friendly and nice and he spoke excellent Chinese. The hotel was not 5 stars but it was clean and nice enough
The most thing i loved about that tour is the tour guide! honestly the guy was really friendly and helpful, he was very helpful and he spoke great Chinese! also the places there was really beautiful, especially the Old Fort Niagara and Whirlpool State Park, also Niagara IMAX theatre was really good
