My whole family was on board with me, plus I would like to thank the management for giving us such an amazing discount on our seat-booking. It was enjoyable, plus, we had so much time to fully browse our destinations which include the Breakers House, Quincy Market, Yale University, and several more.
This was one very well executed tour. From the word go there wasn’t anything that disappointed us. Although we were a group of 3 boys, the hotel accommodation we received within our package was spacious enough with 2 beds and an extra mattress was also provided at our request. Lobster dinner was simply delicious. I’d say GoldenBusTours is one company who knows how to make its guests happy. We had a ball on the tour! Will definitely recommend it to everybody else.
Bus tour package, the bus was clean, the seats were in good condition, but some said it was a bit hard. Otherwise, the tour, the accommodation and the organized plan were met. This 2 day package and we visited so many place new haven, Rhode island and Boston.
We boarded this tour a month ago, my wife accompanied me along, it was well executed tour, especially the breaker mansion at the Rhode Island, the ceiling and everything was quite fancy. We took few photos at Trinity Church, I feel like we have had less time but the tour was executed properly on time.
I must say thanks to GoldenBus Tours for arranging such an amazing tour for us. The company’s representative guided us well during the planning and put our reservations and requirements ahead of anything. An amazing trip with my family! We had lots of fun. The hotels were great and all four days went on as planned. I have already recommended it to many friends.
This was a 2-day guided adventure trip that took me to amazing places. The driver and the guide were too much fun together. We had a great time. My kids loved the Mystic Aquarium, New Port, Trinity Church and Quincy Market. The booking with Golden Bus Tours was perfectly taken forward and everything was well planned. I have recommended this trip to many friends.
They said that the duck tours are way more fun than boating, but I wouldn’t agree with it since duck tour was not what I have had expected. However, we loved the Breakers Mansion and the Harvard University inside journey were lovely to experience. Nice Hotels.
The entire tour was great. Everything was well planned, organized and well executed as well. There isn’t a better company than GoldenBusTours which can plan and carry out bus tours with such detail. We had an amazing time during our tour. The guide was very helpful as well. We explored Mystic Aquarium, New Port, MIT, Harvard University, Trinity Church, Quincy Market and Yale University in this 2-day tour
What an amazing company, it was my first tour with Golden Bus Tours and i really intend to do it again. The organization of the tour was great, we moved on time and according to the schedule, and the tour guide was really an amazing guy, very helpful and nice and really professional. The hotels were very clean and comfortable.
I was on this tour from New jersey. There was no mention of taking us to NYC and pick up of tourists from 2 more points. We left NJ at 6:30 am whereas we left NYC after 9:30 out of NYC. The tour kept us at hotel quite far from Boston after day 1 trip in Boston and back again to Boston early next morning. Also, it was rushed early morning at 6:40am. The tour operator rushed in all places and skip for time factor to reach NYC. If the operator knew that the time for departure to NJ is only at 9pm. Then why was we rushed. Its very unprofessional management of tour . either dont route through NYC through NJ or time the tour connecting NJ tour accordingly. Its inappropriate to have us waiting. It affects health. The mention on website is not clear . the tour operator said they follow time schedule. So why do we not get the same. My order : 9061
