I personally wanted to see two of the most beautiful places of the United States, but I did not want to spend too much time. This is where golden bus tours come in, at a price of only $297 I was able to enjoy a 2 day tour of New York to Niagara Falls, I saw the Finger Lakes and did a bit of sightseeing.
I along with my wife and 2 children went on this tour as part of our vacation trip. It was a quite fascinating tour. We always wanted to witness the great Niagara Falls and GoldenBusTours provided us a wonderful opportunity to explore Niagara Falls and Finger Lakes. I literally enjoyed this tour and would like to take another tour soon with Golden Bus Tours. Thumbs Up!
I have always wanted to see Niagara Falls and this summer I intended to gift my wife and myself this one very well deserved tour. Although I had saved for it I was worried about the expenses but let me tell you, when I booked the tour with GoldenBusTours I exhaled a huge sigh of relief. The company gave me such affordable rates that I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams. I’m glad I chose GoldenBusTours for my tour. Definitely traveling with them again.
We flew to witness the great Niagara Falls and then to different places. It was our honeymoon, a perfect package. We went to Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls, The Crossing Outlet and many other places that we totally enjoyed. I have recommended this plan to my colleagues.
A vacation time in India and we were visiting the U.S. for the 3rd time. We booked this bus tour package so that it is comfortable, timely and affordable. This was a 2 day package to the world’s best Niagara Falls. Lovely the weather was clear to take photos.
There are plenty of reasons to fall in love with Niagara Falls and the beautiful spots located in the premises. You’d also fall in love with this place. Thumbs up!
We recently visited New York and took your 2 Day escorted tour to Niagara Falls and Finger Lake. We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the experience. Our guide was Marcus and our driver Jason .Marcus was so informative and really made sure that everyone was well taken care of. Jason is an absolute saint and took the traffic chaos coming back into New York City with such patience and good humor.
I and my girlfriend boarded on this tour a last week and it was well executed tour. Although it was just 2 days but we had an amazing trip because we got to see so much in this short period. I feel like we have had less time but the tour was executed properly on time. GoldenBusTours is a good company because it is very well affordable and gives you the chance of traveling with comfort and see sights at your own leisure. Definitely recommended!
Visiting Niagara Falls was my dream and I had planned this tour in advance. The services of GoldenBusTours were excellent and I found the tour pretty affordable as well. The rates given by GoldenBusTours were very reasonable and the overall services were also excellent. The company is doing a great job
Amazing tour it was. Perfectly planned and well executed. we really liked its service and its affordability. We explored Finger Lakes and the Niagara Falls in this 2-day exciting tour. A recommended tour for people who are looking for a affordable package.
Tired of the regular schedule, I and my husband hopped on to this bus tour for the week end. It was the right decision as everything was included in the package. It had accommodation to transportation in air conditioned bus, besides a tour guide with full of information. I recommend.
Gave this tour to ourselves as gift for our fifth anniversary. Wife, children and I had the most fabulous time of our lives. We visited Niagara Falls, Finger Lake and Crossing Outlet beginning from NY. 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.
One couldn’t ask for anywhere to go than Finger Lakes and Niagara Falls. This was my first visit and I’m looking to go there again. Simply best getaway for Honeymooners.
Pretty expensive but an amazing tour!!
The trip was so beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed a lot. Our guide kitty was superb and she was patience in explaining about the history of the attractions and guiding the people.Totally this trip was greate...
