We also visited Niagara Falls and Watkins Glen. The company’s representative guided us well during the planning and put our reservations and requirements ahead of anything. We had a great experience. Thanks GBT!
This was a tour booked to make amends. I had long promised my kids of outing and could not make it. So this tour was the best way of making it and they were happy. The Niagara falls visit and the Watkins and glen tour also took me away by its charm.
I boarded on this 3-day tour with my wife and we had the most amazing time there.

There isn’t a better company than Golden Bus Tours which can plan and carry out bus tours with such detail. The guide was very helpful as well. Thank you Golden Bus Tours for such a great ambiance.
This three day guided trip was amazing. It was well planned and my honeymoon went better than expected. I have recommended this three days trip to a lot of people.
I was wondering with the endless beauty of Watkins Glen Park. I’ve already viewed Niagara Falls and Corning Museum but Watkins have touched my heart. I am unable to forget this tour.
I had never seen these places before and I’m glad I hadn’t because the charm would’ve been minimized had I visited this fabulous places on my own. Niagara Falls was simply amazing. Had everything one needs to stay comfortably in a hotel room. Try Golden Bus Tours if you are looking forward to an affordable, well planned trip.
I would like to say thank you to Golden Bus Tours for the memories of an unforgettable holiday tour. Niagara falls in surely an amazing place to visit. It’s difficult to put into words just how beautiful this place is. My experience was enhanced by sharing everything with our guide. Keep up the good work.

I enjoyed the free time we had which was balanced with together time. Trip was great well organized. Niagara Falls and Corning glass museum were awesome. I am very pleased with this tour. Great work!
It was an absolutely thrilling trip to Niagara Falls. I never had a better chance to visit all of the astonishing places at once. I really am in love with this company. Amazing guide, amazing transportation and amazing accommodations arrangements! Booking with Golden Bus Tours also went well. The company’s representative guided us well during the planning and put our reservations and requirements ahead of anything. Everyone should travel with them at least once.
They whole three days were full of interesting places. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From booking to exploration of amazing places to food everything was top class. We look forward to our next adventure tour with Golden Bus Tours. We will certainly tell others about how great this tour was.
I had a bad day in my office and at the weekend took an off and boarded the 3 day bus tour. I think it was the right decision and I came this week beginning to the office with a clear mind. Going on this tour took off my stress.
Tour wasn’t really great, our tour guide will only tell us a little bit history about the places we visit but once we get to the place she will give us free time, thank god I have been to the falls before and knew a little bit about it so I ended up being the guide for 2 different so the $75 mandatory for the “tour” is a total fraud. Second day they didn’t even give us a chance to have breakfast and I was traveling with my 10 year old, we ended up eating our breakfast at 11:40 AM p, tour guide didn’t recommend there was a restaurant at our first stop at Fort Niagara state park, I ended up knowing about it because one of the couples whom I toured the prior day let me know about it but it was already too late by the time they told me. Horrible experience never I will do this again. Lesson learnt.
The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly, yet very professional at the same time. both accommodation and transportation are really luxurious. We saw a lot of nice places for the first time like Newseum, Wax Museum Capitol, Capitol In-depth Walking Tour, White House, Lincoln Memorial, D.C. Harbor Cruise, Pentagon, Watkins Glen State Park, Corning Museum of Glass, Niagara Falls
