This was an intensive scenic tour. the guide helped us get everything together during the trip and make the most of every site we went to see. Golden Bus Tour is very reasonable and affordable to take my family on tour. The trip was fun and enjoyable, the guide was very approachable and the prices were reasonably affordable. Definitely recommended tour and this company!
The best trip ever with friends; I loved the hotels we stayed in and all the places we went to were amazing experiences put together in one package.
It was a great tour package. Everything was fine and well organized. The booking with GoldenBusTours went on well and the guide we had was cooperative. Movie at IMAX Theatre was absolutely amazing. Hotels were so great and we slept well. I have recommended this trip to many friends.
Although we’ve traveled excessively, we’ve never enjoyed so much and that too with such affordability GoldenBus Tours helped us with each and every detail possible. Guide was nice and informative. I also loved the Thousand Islands and also enjoyed every bit of this tour. I have recommended it to a few of my friends
My husband on his holidays from his job was willing to take me to somewhere really nice and far away from our hometown for few days. Thus, we found this suitable deal on GoldenBusTours with discounts and experienced it for the first time. It went good. I was hoping to enjoy the tour and I did specially at Thousands Island and Niagara, hotels were spectacular.
It was an unforgettable tour with visits to the Niagara Falls, IMAX theatre and Thousand Islands. Great trip and very well organized all the way. We had a professional tour guide who always had the passenger interest and comfort in mind. Everyone must take this tour with family
Visiting 7 wonders of the world has always been in my wish list especially Niagara Falls and thanks to GoldenBusTours for making me witness the Great Falls in a in-depth tour from New York. We also got to visit Thousand Islands and watched a movie in IMAX Theatre. Splendid tour it was. My family really enjoyed the whole tour. I’m surely going to book another tour soon. GoldenBusTours is the Best!
I have been on many tours in US and overseas, but have never had such wonderful personalized service that Golden Bus Tours provided us. It was a very well planned, paced and priced trip. Our guide was exceptional. He continually checked to make sure that everyone’s needs were met and that no one was left out. We can’t wait for our next opportunity to travel with this company.
This was my very first trip with Golden Bus Tours and I was very impressed with it! Absolutely! We appreciated the fast pace and strenuous walking, instead of relying on a big city bus. Your guides were the best! We had a great group of fun people on the tour. The tour was well paced. I have recommended this tour to many friends.
This was perfect two days that allowed us to everything I ever dreamed of. The company has got luxurious buses that are well maintained and offer the best services to their customers. I’d give five stars to this amazing tour company.
I had been planning a trip to take a break from my schedule and I found this deal from GoldenBusTours quite interesting. And the price the tour was offered at, I’d say simply awesome! The buses were on time, the hotels were clean, the guides quite friendly and the trip was perfect. I will be boarding on another tour in which I will get more time to explore the sights.
What I like about GoldenBusTours is that it is a very well organized company. We got a really good deal, we were able to do take boat ride and see the late night illuminations of Niagara Falls, we also tour Thousand Island and IMAX theatre. Everything was like it was taken out of fairytale, absolutely magical. The booking with golden bus tours went well and so did the entire trip. I will surely recommend this package to my friends.
It was a breathtaking tour to few of the sensational places on earth. The scenic beauty of Niagara Falls was exactly what I wanted to see on this tour. Our guide managed the whole tour brilliantly and he was fun too. Itinerary was well balanced as we weren’t hushed from one place to another. It was a great tour. I would recommend it to my sister who is looking for a tour in coming vacations.
I actually rated 5 stars as the bus tour was excellent. The tour from New York to Niagara Falls and IMAX Theater was superb. The hotels booking was also fair enough and the dinner was good. I went alone and am happy to recommend the tour packages.
I went with my friends and we enjoyed the entire package. I enjoy planning my trips myself but my experience with Golden Bus Tours was great because they didn’t rush me at any time and I was able to enjoy each site at my own pace. Thank you Golden Bus Tours!
I and my husband had made a plan to visit London last summer. However, we changed the plan and went for this tour. Honestly, it was a perfect decision taken by both of us.
I went for this trip with my parents and grandparents. We had difficulty in the hotels while the booking with golden tours bus went smooth. Thousand Islands was our first stop then we returned back for dinner and rested in a comfortable hotel. I think there are many other better tour packages so wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
This is the best trip I have had in a while. We’ll be looking forward for more amazing tours with Golden Bus Tours. It was a very smooth trip. The hotels were just fabulous. It was more than expected. I had a great time travelling with Golden Bus. The offer the best service and accommodation. GoldenBusTours really proved their self the best when compared to the rest. I will definitely recommend it to everybody.
A thoughtful tour, looked like we had customized this tour. We were at ease; everything was almost perfect to the best of my knowledge. This was a 2 day tour and as usual, my children liked the Imax theatre and Niagara Falls.
Our overall experience was very good, but exhausting! Our group bonded quickly and shared so many laughs together. There is definitely a positive vibe & happy exuberance when you go with a group of like minded souls. The value of the hotel, the included meals, tour guide's knowledge and patience as well as the tour guides was exceptional. It was the active tour we were hoping for. Thanks GBT!
This 2-day bus tour was amazing. We explored Alexander Bay, Thousand Islands, IMAX Theater and Maid of the Mist boat ride in Niagara Falls. What more could we have asked for at such affordable prices. We didn’t have to rush from one point to another and got to explore each place on our own pace. Golden bus reserved us the best hotel rooms individually for every member on the tour. Best Tour ever!
Never say NO to this trip. I have convinced my spouse for heading to this tour again. You must have lots of energy to visit every eye-grabbing location included in this package.
