I love exploring places and this was my first visit. I immediately got a ticket for me in this bus tour and had a great time for 3 days. They took us to all the places such as Navy pier, Michingan Avenue and Millenium Park. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the hotel stay.

I was among those people who always thought that Chicago doesn’t have much to offer as compared to other cities of USA. However my perception changed when I took the tour service of golden bus tours. It was a six day trip and we visited various tourist destinations. It was a great tour all together

43 7

The websites I was visiting had more reviews, but few packages. This was the bus tour agent with lots of tour packages, but I would appreciate more information on offers. I loved the aquarium, theater city and the entire tour. The accommodation was decently good. I recommend.

38 10

I thought Chicago was a boring city but after my mother insisted me (She lives in Chicago) I was forced to take this tour, alone. At first I hated it but the staff executed the tour very professionally, I only wish these 3 days were 6 days, so I could explore the city more.Thumbs up!

36 9

Nice traveling, the bus was convenient and luxurious. The passengers were also good. The accommodation was decent, the staff was really friendly. The charges of the bus with the offers they gave made it truly affordable. The millennium park, the navy pier lake, the Chicago city visit satisfied us.

35 8

I have got to admit that this tour of three days by Golden Tour Organization really got me enjoying. Millennium Park, Shed Aquarium, Michigan Avenue, Chicago Theater and then the Chicago City exploring journey was pleasurable. Thanks for your discounts and guidance at the finest attractions that really helped us. Thanks a lot.
