As a Danish, I was very curious to see the Denmark Village. This place hasn’t disappointed me for even a minute. Everything has been imitated perfectly from the Danish culture and traditions in their construction.
I went on this tour with my friends. Due to the excellent tour service in an economical package by Golden Bus Tour they satisfied everybody with their quality tour guide and service. We explored San Francisco. We absolutely loved the visits to Bay Cruise, Seal Rocks, Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay and Fisherman’s Wharf. Great hotel stays. I liked that.
A tour that’s well plan and very well executed, that’s GoldenBus Tours for you. I say this because I have first hand experienced the company’s service. I have toured with the company about 4 times but this is the first time I’m submitting a review because I feel they truly deserve one. The tour bus picked me up from El Monte and from thereon began a 3 day journey I will never forget in my life. Thank you GoldenBus Tours.
The bus tour was excellent and beyond my expectation. I had taken similar bus tour in past with friends but it was not something to remember. So, I did not have high expectations from it but it proved to be completely different from my past experience. My kids and I departed on this bus tour and we really had fun exploring Pyramid Lake, Carmel city, Monterrey Bay Aquarium. I’ve never known that the Monterrey Bay Aquarium was this amazing. My kids really enjoyed the time we spent at Bay Aquarium. The hotels in which we stayed the night were decent. Good tour service.
I am in for this 3 day tour as I have Friday holiday. I clubbed it with my weekend holidays and was there to visit all these places of attraction. The only disappointing fact was I was traveling solo. Anyone accompanying me would have been fun. Anyway, I had a great wonderful tour.
My family and i decided to go on a trip in our holidays, we decided to give GoldenBusTour a shot, I must admit, the staff was so helpful they guided us on every step and gave us a detailed tour of Bay Cruise, Pebble Beach, Carmel town, and other places. We had so much fun we are deciding to take another tour, and we all know where I will find the best, RIGHT HERE.
It was a good tour service provided by the organizations. We have had been to countless locations to have fun and we really did have fun. I wanted to spend some time at The Cypress Point but it’s OK because when we stopped at the Carmel I forgot about the beauty of Cypress Point. Overall the tour was excellent including the hotels, although I got sick which was pretty bad for me.
The only thing i did not like in that tour is that Monterey Bay Aquarium and San Francisco Bay Cruise admissions were not included in the tour price, but other thn that it was amazing, Great organization and punctuality and really nice and comfortable hotels. Also i would like to thank the tour guide for his amazing effort, he was really a great guy, really helpful and very friendly, it was really an amazing experience,
The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay and even during the tour we were right on schedule, it was a great effort from the tour guide who was a great guy by the way. The accommodation was really comfortable, really clean and cozy hotels and we saw some amazing places. It was really a great tour and great experience. I really hope i can do it again some time
I liked every part about that tour, it was very well organized and our tour guide was an amazing guy, we saw a lot of great things like Pyramid Lake, Outlets at Tejon Ranch, Bay Area Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman\'s Wharf, Market Street, Civic Center, Twin Peaks, Golden Gate Park, Pebble Beach, 17-Mile Drive, Cypress Point, Fisherman’s Warf, Seal Rock, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Monterrey Bay Aquarium. It was really worth our time and money
