Overall it was an excellent tour. The guide kept us engaged throughout the tour by telling us amazing stories about NY and Amish Country that we hadn’t heard before. I found his background commentary about the locations very informative and interesting. The accommodation was good too because it had everything one needs for an overnight stay. I’m definitely booking my other tours with GoldenBusTours because I really liked the service and execution of the company.

The way people of the Amish Village were leading their lives seems they are far better than us in the modern cities. No crowd, traffic, pollution or any sort of nuisance just a peaceful village living in harmony with each other. I am glad that I went on this tour.

I am very much impressed by GoldenBusTours. They say first impression is the last impression and this company certainly managed to win my heart with their tour plan and the way it was carried out. Nothing was missing. We got to see and experience each and everything that was stated, in fact it was more than what was written in the itinerary. We had a great time. My children loved travelling by bus.

We gave this tour to ourselves as anniversary gift. Wife, children and I had the most fabulous time of our lives. We visited Philadelphia, Liberty Bell, Constitution Square, Congress Hall, Air and Space Museum, Lincoln, Washington, Korea &Vietnam Memorials, and Arlington National Cemetery and many other places. I must say we got to see everything that was mentioned in the plan that we received and the best thing is that we weren’t asked to rush. I’ll say that those who want good travel experience should chose GoldenBusTours to travel with.

Excellent arrangements done by GoldenBusTours, we had a great time. The tour was only 2 day long but due to excellent management of time we get to enjoy and visit all the places at a decent pace. We had a great experience exploring Washington and other places. I would recommend it to everyone.

I love bus traveling as we can sit and keep watching all the scenery and reach destinations. This bus tour ensured things were as planned, the accommodation was ok. I enjoyed every bit of the traveling, accommodation and the places we visited, except that the passenger at my back kept on talking.
