This was my first time travelling with a tour company. I must say it was a very well organized tour at a reasonable price.. The guides were very nice. Golden bus Tours provided us with an brilliant opportunity to explore White Mountain National Forest, Echo Lake, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, New Hampshire and Polar Caves Park . I recommend this tour and this company.
This three day trip was much awaited. I went with my cousins and we had great fun. The entire tour was amazingly executed by GoldenBus Tours. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The booking with golden bus tours went well and so did the entire trip. I have already recommend this package to my friends.
