The tour overall was good. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves although there were many hours spent travelling. However, the person who picked us up from the airport was a bit pushy with the optional tours that we did not want to do.
I suggest this tour. I took my little girl for her birthday and we had a ton of fun we intend to go for the late spring visit. Our guide was so useful and kept us engaged with her insight and incredible humor. Likewise she has heaps of anecdotes about the adventure and history of certain urban areas. On the off chance that we return to visit New York, I will come back to Niagara Fall with this Tour. The visit was very much arranged and timetables were met well. I will book again when I come back to see New York in the summer!
It was a very wise decision of my husband to book this tour for us. Everything goes as mentioned and certainly these people are very professional. The tour operators that GoldenBus is working with, i must say they are very comfortable people to travel with. All the attractions are a highlight for every age group. Even if you are not experiencing all this for the first time you won't get bored of it. The Tour Guide, Hotels, Bus, Food everything lives up to the expectations. It was our anniversary time away from the home and we spent it very reasonably in a great price. I fully recommend this tour and agency to everyone.
I would really like to thank Golden Bus Tours for organizing that tour, it was really great and well organized and punctual. Next i was to thank the tour guide who was really a stand up guy, he was very helpful and very professional and really funny. great Job Golden Bus Tours. I would really like to use your services again, but next time i would visit the West coast.
The best thing i loved about that tour was Niagara Jet boat ride, it was really magical, This was our first time to take that Jet boat ride. nothing was more fun than that, the hotel was really clean and it was just few minutes away from Niagara Falls. Our tour guide was really helpful and professional. We saw Old Fort Niagara, Boston, Niagara Falls, Harvard University, Corning Glass Museum, Quincy Market, Boston Harbor.
We really needed some time off, and i am really glad we chose that tour, it really worth it, we saw Niagara Falls, Whirlpool State Park, Old Fort Niagara, Boston,Harvard University, Corning Glass Museum, Quincy Market, Boston Harbor. And we really liked Boston Lobster Dinner and Boston Harbor Cruise
This was our first time to visit Niagara Falls.it was really an amazing place, a really world wonder! The next best thing was our tour guide, he was really an amazing and professional one. Our hotels were really comfortable and nice enough. We really loved it all. Whirlpool State Park, Old Fort Niagara, Boston, Niagara Falls, Harvard University, Corning Glass Museum, Quincy Market, Boston Harbor.
nothing is more fun than spending time with your family in such an amazing place like Niagara Falls. we had a great time, our accommodation was great, the hotels we stayed at were very clean and comfortable. it was my first tour with Golden Bus Tours and i really intend to do it again.
we had a great time during these 3 days, our tour guide was a very helpful guy, he was also really funny and very professional, i really wish all tour guides are like that. Our bus was clean and the hotels were really comfortable. We really enjoyed that great service, and the best thing was Jet Boat Ride in Niagara Falls. Also Niagara In-depth Tour was really an amazing experience. We really had a great time.
That tour was really perfect. Everything was in its right place, the 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 . We really enjoyed Whirlpool State Park, Old Fort Niagara, Boston, Niagara Falls, Harvard University, Corning Glass Museum.
The bus windows need to be cleaned so that photos could be taken as we drive for the many hours on the bus. Also, some of the seats should be repaired. We got stuck behind a chair that was in a reclining position. And sitting many hours in a full coach made it uncomfortable.
We had a transfer guide. It was a lady guide and she was not at all clear with her instructions, confusing and pretty rude. The coach was comfortable, but needs to have some up keeping done. Accommodation was excellent. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
On the upside, Our tour guide was excellent. He spoke clearly and was easy to understand. Will - our guide was good but he could improve on his pronunciation. But no complaints otherwise. They both were always friendly and helpful.
In actual fact, Many people in the group opted out of this tour. He should not have been so pushy to make a commission from us. I think it should be made clear that it was optional and it is our decision to opt in or not for it. It was not a first good impression we had for the travel agent.
As we had already spent a few days in New York beforehand. I do not think that it was right of tour guide to tell us that we should get our friends/relatives come take us out during the 5 hours we are on our own, as he seemed to imply we would be stuck in some hotel with nothing to do.
This was a memorable tour and I will firmly suggest your name to other people. Visit guide was professional and accommodating to all. Time given at different spots was sufficient. Hotel arrangements were great. I will recommend this visit to all. All the best from us to the guide and particularly the travel agency who ensured we are open to amid our adventure and even while booking the visit.
