My daughter booked this tour for me and my wife and her. I was concerned about how they would accommodate us. I am an old man and often require some assistance on these tours. The tour staff was always ready to help me/my wife in any way possible to make sure we have an astonishing experience and they were often cared for us in many places like Secret Caverns where we had trouble walking.

I heard a lot about Niagara Falls and whenever in America, I tried to visit the falls. One of my friends suggested that I should book a tour as I have never been there, but I always wondered if these tour companies will provide the experience I can gain on my own. Taking a risk I choose this tour but it sure did prove great. It was a highly organized and managed tour with great staff and experienced guides. The hotels were also amazing along with the food and everything!

I moved to New York back in 2008 and since then visited the Niagara Falls 3 times. This was my fourth time but this was the first time when I choose a planned tour rather than going there by myself. I was with a friend of mine who also never tried tours. We had an amazing trip as our buses were on time, the hotel was quite comfortable and the guide was an experienced man who shared with us great knowledge about every place. The most fascinating place was the Secret Caverns as it was a miracle existing through ages.

My tour guide Shelley Liu was absolutely amazing. She spoke great English and made my experience extra fun. She was happy to help and always smiling. I would book a trip with her as my guide any day. I give her 5 stars and was my best traveling experience ever.

A very well organized tour on whole. The tour guide was a Chinese guy but he was able to communicate with us in English language. I was disappointed that hotel did not offer any complimentary breakfast. Most of the hotels offer it but not sure why they did not offer. Apart from this it was an amazing tour. My kids really enjoy the Maid of the Mist Boat Ride. It is a perfect family!

26 5

The collection of places in this tour is sure mind-blowing! The Corning glass museum is the best site for me in this whole package. The transportation and hotel were satisfying but the thing that bothered me was that I was traveling with a family and my brother got sick but was not provided with proper accommodations so he wasn’t able to enjoy. Otherwise, I had an amazing experience at every place.

I took their tour last year it was a different tour. My parents were in US. So, I booked this one. I was impressed just because the hotel was close to the Niagara Falls. The previous one I booked had hotels 30 mins away from the Falls. So, we could not get enough time to explore Niagara on our own. However, on this tour the hotel was like 10 mins away by walk and for me it was a deal breaker. Thank you!

Next i was to thank the tour guide who was really a stand up guy, he was very helpful and very professional and really funny. great Job Golden Bus Tours.

The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay, we were right on schedule in everything.

Our tour guide was really helpful and professional. We saw Watkins Glen, Secret Caverns, Niagara Falls, American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil Falls. I just wish that admissions were included in the tour price

The tour guide was very friendly and was on time to accompany us. The real beauty of Corning, Watkins Glen State Park and Niagara Falls are the cities to watch and discover. Overall I would give a 4-star to this tour. Highly recommend this tour to all of my friends.

Bùi Thị Diệu Yến

This tour was one of the best and I will remember this for my entire lifetime. I always wanted to explore the rich nature of Niagara Falls and exclusively the city of New York. New York is a city filled with full of excitements. Niagara Falls and cornering glass museum was worth a visit.

相賀 陽菜

This deserves to be one of the most memorable tours I have ever done in my life and I rate this tour as 4-star. The rate becomes economical if you take a package of buy 2 get 3rd discounted. Niagara Falls was simply relaxing and it is the favorite tourist spot for many. Watkins Glen State Park is truly amazing.

Jürgen Bohm

This was a new tour on the offering and we were little skeptical to take it. Corning, Watkins Glen State Park and Niagara Falls are the main attractions of this tour. This is a longer tour comparatively to others and it was real fun and I must say that we took the right decision by going on this tour.

Lok Tao

The tour guide was very friendly and was on time to accompany us. The real beauty of Niagara Falls and Corning and Watkins Glen State Park are the cities to watch and discover. Overall I would give a 4-star to this tour. Thanks Goldenbustours. Highly recommend.

Madeline Chumleigh

The trip is bit expensive; however it gives a breather if you buy 2 as you get 3rd discounted with it. We were a group of 3 and it was real fun to be at Niagara Falls. The best part was Maid of Mist Boat and having an awesome dinner. I would recommend if you are nature lover then visiting Niagara Falls is must for you.


The best thing in that tour was Niagara Jet Boat ride, i just wish if it was included in the price. the bus was nice enough but had no Wifi. The hotel was really great and it was also just few minutes away from Niagara Falls, it was also very clean and comfortable. Watkins Glen, Secret Caverns were really worth it. I really wish i can take that tour again.
