The tour was great! Especially the midnight eve we have all been waiting for . The second day was tiring, because we stayed up late at night, and then we had a long day ahead as well. If we had visited less number of places on second day, then we’d be very fresh. Yet, I loved the ad-on services the company provided (that too on economical price) at nearly every stop so if we want to hang out more into the specific areas of the location, we can. Overall, I will rate this tour a 3-star.
ONCE IN A LIFE TIME EXPERIENCE! We are so happy that we booked prior, and went on this tour. It was such an amazing experience to see the fireworks light breaking the darkness of night at the midnight! Not only this, we were always curious about the Amish culture, and once we entered Amish Village, the tour guide so helpful in explaining the culture, and lifestyle of Amish. It was not only a fun tour, but also a learning opportunity. Absolutely loved it!
our tour first headed to Lancaster where we had to visit Amish Village. Unfortunately, it rained earlier that day and the farming region was all muddy. But we still managed to visit the appropriate sites, especially our tour leader helped us all out to visit the best spots with great guidance. However, we had the best time Washington D.C and Philadelphia. We spent our last day exploring New York, explored views for Empire State Building, the Hudson river cruise took us closer to the Liberty Statue; it was breathtaking. We will definitely board on another reasonable tour on our next vacations. Cheers!
We’ve had already seen so much at Las Vegas and then it was time to visit Washington DC and Philadelphia. My wife showed me this bus tour on the internet, that in fact, let us see the best around the DC and Philly on a to day course of a journey. Despite the great stops and hotels this bus tour offered us, we also like to appreciate the online seat booking services, it was quite facilitating. Mentioning the NYC and Amish Village tours that made our two-day bus tour so special and exciting. Great experience!
It was about that time in summers when I had to take the family out on vacations, due to the holiday season. It was quite a fatigue to drive the crew out of the city and managing hotels, food, and everything. This time I decided to experience this bus journey which came out to be the best tour experiences we have ever had. Our tour operator lets us explore Amish Farm, Washington DC, NYC, and the hotel at the end of our first day was just decent. Although, we are not fond of traveling on buses full of people, but then again it still worth it.
Last week I did this trip with my family. We were 7 members. Our experience was very disappointing. The reasons are as below 1. "Beware" - The statue of liberty attraction is not what you would think about. It's JUST A CRUISE RIDE. THEY DO NOT TAKE YOU TO LIBERTY ISLAND which I think is the real fun. They should mention it clearly in the terms and conditions. 2. Food - Their management is very poor with respect to taking breaks for food. With family having kids this is true challenge. On the first day, they stopped at Target shop and asked us to grab some food. I mean "Target" for food? Also, the time given to see attraction and lunch/dinner is way less. 3. The tour guide do not provide clear instructions about what to do next. I have seen many people asking him questions and requested him to be clear with his instructions. 4. The vehicle was not maintained. The seats were in bad condition and some of them very dirty. When we told tour guide about the same he asked us to keep something on the seats like cloths and then use it. So, overall it was disappointing for us. Please think before you make decision.
Few days back we took this tour. We booked 2 rooms for a family of 6. Due to road accident we were 10 minutes late but the guide was kind enough to wait for us at the pikcup location. They don't go to STatue of Liberty and only take the cruise. I think it should be added in the package. Apart from that the overall experience was amazing!
The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly, yet very professional at the same time. both accommodation and transportation are really luxurious. We saw a lot of nice places for the first time like Amish Village, Independence National Historical Park, Liberty Bell, Washington Statue, Congress Hall, Congress Hall, One World Observatory, Trinity Church , Central Park, USS Intrepid, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Hudson River, Financial District, Charging Bull, Wall Street, Madame Tussauds, New York Stock Exchange, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Time Square
I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.

The tour itself was really great, i just had a couple of issues, first the bathroom on the bus was for emergencies only,so we had to wait for breaks, also i really wish if admissions were included in the tour price. But other than that, we really had a great time, we loved all places we saw and the tour was very well organized. Hotels were really good and the tour guide was real nice guy. We really loved Amish Village, Independence National Historical Park, Liberty Bell, Washington Statue, Congress Hall, Congress Hall, One World Observatory, Trinity Church , Central Park, USS Intrepid, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Hudson River, Financial District, Charging Bull, Wall Street, Madame Tussauds.
