Great value for your money. We had Kitty as our tour guide. She took us to some lovely places in the Lake Placid and Lake George area. The best part of the trip was probably the Audible chasm where we walked a trail and also went rafting. The rafting was really fun, and we wished it was longer since he had s great time there. Hotel was actually a pretty nice, much better than we expected.
For my honeymoon, I and my husband opted for this trip which turned out to be great. We had so much fun, made new friends. I also enjoyed the stay and the hotel facilities Guide was great. He was very patient, courteous, well informed, and has a good sense of humor. I would recommend it to everyone who is planning to take tour in these vacations.
This was an excellent tour with scenic beauty. The Scenic beauty we saw on the way to our destination was superb. The Lake George cruise was very nice. Ausable Chasm and High Falls George is a must see. However due to rain we missed River Rafting. Special thanks to tour guide and the driver.
Taking the tours on the bus has never been my thing. Despite all that, I decided to plan a journey to the Ausable Chasm and Whiteface Mountain, and then I found this reasonable bus tour on the internet. Booking the seats online is a great facility for the customers, it was easy to book and join the tour, and even see all the information about our bus journey. American Best Value was the hotel in which we spent the night and believe it was much better than its ratings. Anyways, we had a wonderful time on board and the bus tours have become my best things to do on the vacations.
A two day trip which was simply amazing! I went with my friends. The hotels were so good. I also loved the Lake George and also enjoyed every bit of this tour. Golden Bus Tours is just awesome! We did not have any problem. The guide was quite friendly and we also made other friends. It’s been a while but I still keep in touch with few of them. I have recommended this trip to many friends.
What a poor service @goldenbustours. On our first day we were said that the bus will depart from 87 Bowery St, Chinatown, Manhattan, New York, at 8:00 AM. Then why did it departed so late and we missed few places just because of that. The hotels in which you guys let us to stay were the worst. I though Golden Bus Tour provide the finest bus tour service.
My friends had planned this tour as a birthday gift and we had a blasting time. We wanted to take more photos, but were asked to board the bus. It would be nice to have extra time, but they are an organized tour and had lots to cover. I think they were right.
I was wondering if they could provide us more destinations on our two days of the schedule. But the places we went to out to visit were truly amazing. The Whiteface Mountain tram riding was the best experience, plus the Mini-Ha cruise at the Lake Gorge. Although, we could have a done a lot much than the mentioned sites. Our hotels and bus services were both comfortable, decent, and appreciable. Thanks a lot for this great bus facility.
