My girlfriend and I have been together for over 5 years, I know that’s a lot. So, I decided to propose her at the Niagara Falls. I quickly searched internet for a tour, and came across this tour and this tour looked like complete package. Fast forward to propose, she said Yes. It was really romantic, everyone was so appreciating on our tour. I couldn’t have been anymore happier. We are also deciding to book our honeymoon by this agency. Very good rates and packages.

My brother bought this tour as a birthday gift to me and we celebrated my 29th birthday in the beautiful Niagara Falls! Our tour guide, Eric, is a very knowledgeable and funny guy. In the evening of the second day, Eric asked everybody on the bus to sing a happy birthday song to me which is very sweet! Thank you GoldenBusTours and Eric!

It was a wonderful tour indeed. GoldenBusTours had it planned it with quite detail and the best part was the tour wasn’t rushed. It gave us a very relaxed time to enjoy each place at our own will. This was a great tour. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. The tour guide was supportive and made sure that all the passengers enjoyed the tour and we covered all the tourist points with ease. I would recommend this tour for friends and relatives

I loved this trip. After long, my family decided to do something to keep us away from work and school. My kids loved it. The hotels were quite comfortable. We enjoyed every place specially the Niagara Falls. At first my kids were stunned and then they just went ahead and had lots of fun. We are planning to do this again. I have recommended it to my fronds from work.

I belong to a music band and on this tour I wished to see some places. Everything was fairly good, except for the bus cleanliness. It was not perfectly clean on the 2nd day while boarding, but by the noon we visited some places, the bus was ensured it was clean. I recommend.

This was our honeymoon trip and the 3 day bus tour was worthy enough. We never felt like a new place. The guide and the driver were friendly and guided everywhere. The Niagara Falls visit was unforgettable. I loved the accommodation provided on this tour or else usually I am a bit fussy.

Visiting Niagara Falls has always been on our wish list and we finally get to see those beautiful decorations of Niagara Falls. I must say we got to see everything that was mentioned in the plan that we received and the best thing is that we weren’t asked to rush. It has been a wonderful experience thanks for everything! Thumbs Up!

We are an Indian family of 5 people, we were visiting North America for the first and figured why not visit one of the most popular place, Niagara Falls. As far as the tour and our destination goes, we have no complaint. Everyone on our bus was nice including our tour guide but we are vegetarian, and the only food we could find was this really expensive buffet during our stay at Toronto. We were on limited budget and that cost us a lot. It was bit disappointing, other than that, I have no problem at all.

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.

That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included, but it was really worth every penny. We really loved how well the tour was organized. And our tour guide was an amazing guy. we loved Corning Glass Museum, Niagara Falls, Maid of the Mist Boat Ride, Royal Ontario Museum, Thousand Islands, Kingston Ontario, Lake Ontario, Toronto, Skylon Tower and CN tower.
