A fun-filled, informative and lively tour. I went for this three day tour with my grandma and she left feeling and looking young again. I am coming back with my granddad and dad next time. If it could put a smile on my grandma’s face, I am sure it will do the same for you.
Booking hotels was quite stressful since we went during the Easter holidays. We ended up in a very mundane 2 star hotel but all that was overshadowed by the excellent services provided by Golden Bus, their tour guide was very passionate, professional and knowledgeable and didn’t mind sharing that information with us. The visit to Grand Canyon South Rim, Las Vegas Strip, and Botanical Cactus Garden proved to be the most memorable. I have recommended it to family and friends.
The Mojave Desert, nothing to see hear just an excuse to drink those glasses of water doctors recommend you should drink every day. The Hoover Dam and power plant showcase the best of brains and architecture, a must see. The Grand Canyon is scenic but overpriced. Chocolate city, if you have kids they will love it. It didn’t turn out as great as I had imagined it would be probably due to the poor weather and a puncture that set us back.
Our first stop was Mojave Desert and we had written it off as one of the most boring places we would visit. The place was very hot; I had to guzzle gallons of water. However it turned out to be pretty interesting. The Rocky Mountains, the Kelso sand dunes, the Teutonic trail combined with the cactus, the Joshua trees and wind turbines made the desert oddly breathtaking. Great place to take amazing photos. The rest of the tour was as pleasant and magnificent as we had expected. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn something new. I was surprised to learn that deserts are actually quite beautiful.
I will recommend this tour just because of the customer support I got throughout the tour. The way they entertained my requests and answered all my queries was amazing. And more important they offer additional discounts on their tours.
Las Vegas was my dream city and this trip made it happen. Golden bus tours services were alright but the trip was well planned. I had a great time with my classmates. I will recommend this trip to all my friends.
Breathtaking sites here, there everywhere. Good food, good shows, good shops. Too bad I went alone on this trip and felt like a poor lonely puppy as everyone laughed and had fun together. You should probably tag along some friends if you want to have a truly memorable experience. The driver was kind enough to chat me up and would lend a helping hand whenever I needed one (selfies). Guess I wasn’t alone after all, thanks to that driver from Golden Bus Tours. I am coming back, this time with a bunch of friends and I hope I get the same driver.
In three days, I could see the maximum. I was by myself and I went visiting to the Botanical Garden, Ethel M Chocolate Factory, Grand Canyon National Park, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas and Barstow Outlet. The guide was not so helpful but I enjoyed the trip. I will do this again.
What a really nice 3 days, we really enjoyed our time during these days. we saw some pretty amazing stuff like Mojave Desert, San Bernardino Valley Area and Ethel M Chocolate Factory, Botanical Cactus . Also Grand Canyon South Rim was really amazing, i just wish that the admissions were optional and not mandatory
It was really a great tour, and very well organized. There was no delay and the tour guide was very nice guy and he was also really helpful and professional. I just wish he could speak Indian. the bus was comfortable and the hotels also were really clean. we would really recommend that tour to our friends,
Golden Bus Tours did a wonderful job putting that tour together, It was very well organized and punctual, we moved exactly on time without any delay, not even during the tour, our tour guide was an amazing guy, really polite and professional person. Really nice hotels and comfortable bus. I really enjoyed every day of it,.
the best thing i loved about that tour was the tour guide, because that guy was very polite and helpful, he was really very professional guy. He really deserves the daily $9 tip. Also our driver was very friendly guy. We enjoyed the bus as it was comfortable and we enjoyed the accommodation as hotels were very clean and cozy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.
The best thing on that tour was Grand Canyon South Rim, it was really magnificent and beautiful, i jut did not like the fact that admissions were mandatory not optional, also the tip was mandatory and i really think that all admissions and tips should be optional. the tour itself was well organized and the tour guide was nice, so it was rally nice vacation
The tour itself was really nice and well organized, our tour guide was nice and we saw some amazing places like Mojave Desert, San Bernardino Valley Area, Grand Canyon South Rim. My only issue was that the bus did not have Wifi, and the admissions were not included. But other than that it was really great.
