We had been to this tour taking it to be a weekend off and went out all of a sudden. It was fabulous to see Washington D.C. and all the other related places. The places to explore were fascinating and of course this was not our first time trip to Washington D.C and it the important places, yet each time we went it looked more interesting. The bus, the tour, the driver and the guide were doing a great job. They did not make any thing to cause discomfort. The hotel accommodations were exceptionally good and everything seemed perfectly in place.

I am on this tour basically as I have been here for over 3 years and am unable to see Washington D.C. My parents keep pestering me to visit and take photos of the place, of course with me in it and I am unable to get a real break from my study session. This was luckily a 3 day tour and I really made to it and the disappointing part is I had plans to come with my friends, and they did not join me as their papers were incomplete. The tour was good and they gave a clean and ideal tour.

The best thing we loved about that tour is the tour guide. Our tour guide was really a great guy. He was very helpful and very professional yet so friendly and funny at the same time. Our bus was clean and comfortable though there was no bathroom available so we had to stop for breaks, the hotels were really clean and comfortable. I really would like to thank Golden bus tours for organizing that tour , it was a great 3 day vacation for us.

Our guide was exceptionally charming, satisfying and experienced. The hotels were extraordinary, alongside morning meals. Shockingly superior to anything we at any point envisioned. The transport rides were long, yet by what other method would you see such a magnificent world loaded up with nature that you will dependably recollect! definitely use GoldenBusTours!
