It was an interesting trip to the glass museum and Niagara Falls. View of Niagara Falls we got from the boat was very beautiful. In the limited time we explored everything and it was a romantic place to visit. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the trip. However, the food should have been better.

I went on this trip with my husband and our two sons. We all enjoyed the trip. Visit to Corning Glass museum was interesting. We went on the trip during early may and it was a bit too cold to be on the deck of the boat. There was some snow still left close to the falls. I think it is better to choose a later month to get the full benefit of the boat ride. The movie was very interesting too. It is a good trip for a family.

I went with a few of my friends and classmates. We enjoyed the trip to museum. One member of our group was less than 19 years and he didn’t have to pay for entering the museum. Even we got a discount. However, there is only one hour to view the whole museum and to experience glass making. As such, you need to hurry if you want to save time to have something in the cafeteria. Trip to Niagara was interesting but the schedule was a bit too tight.

Nice trip and perfect tour guide from tour company. They planned everything like professionals and everything was amazingly organized. The best thing about booking with them is that I was able to get 20% discount. They are literraly offering this tour for peanuts. I can vouch for their amazing service and very low prices. Tour basically went to Niagara Falls. It covered Corning Glass Museum,whirlpool state park and old Fort Niagara as well. Actually when I was there, I saw lot of beautiful views more than that. It was a really wonderful trip!

It was a nice trip. Visit to the Glass museum was good as we learned something about glass making there. Niagara visit was interesting. But the guide rushed through to save time. However, we covered the entire area and managed to have a glimpse of everything. Ride on the” Maid of the Mist” was interesting and you can get a good view of the fall. It was a unique experience. Movie was interesting and it is worth the price you pay.

I loved this trip. For the first time I traveled alone and everything fell right into place. All the facilities were amazing, and booking with Golden bus tours kept everything organised and smooth. The Niagara Falls illumination was simply too perfect.

It was a nice trip. Don’t forget to visit the souvenir shop in glass museum and to have something in the cafeteria. Niagara is a must visit place during the summer with the trees in the park in full bloom. It is a really romantic place. Boat ride also was interesting. However, accommodation could have been better.

This trip was amazing. I went with my husband for our second anniversary. The facilities were pleasing and the Golden bus tours services were great. I enjoyed most part of the trip except for the hotels which were mediocre. I will recommend it as a perfect honeymoon package.

My friend recommend me to join an two-day tour to Niagara Falls since a couple Presidents also come here for their personal vacation. Taking his recommendation, I'm glad I joined the tour to see colorful falls and unique scenic there. And I was surprised to see Niagara Falls Illumination at night. That was a very beautiful view and for all those who are planning to take the tour should not miss out on the night view. It is for me the best thing at the Niagara Falls.
