It was a great tour indeed. The tour guide was fantastic. Hotel was also good. I went with my friends and we enjoyed the scenic beauty of Acadia National Park. I want to go on this Tour again with the same guide and your company and would recommend your company to everyone I know.
This was my honeymoon and we went on this tour. We had all the time we want and also enjoyed the privacy. The room was good and so was the bus. The national park and the harbor tour were simply beautiful.
If you plan US trip, I absolutely recommend you must book tour through Tour agency , It\'s dangerous and a lot of pickpocket at US especially at east coast. Go with tours bus, at least they give you tips avoid pickpocket and you\'ll visit more place. Wake up call from 6:30 am each morning and back to hotel rest around 7:30 pm ( depending on traffic ) If you from North America , you could book with GoldenBusTours.com
If you are thinking about taking that tour don\'t ever hesitate. It is a great tour, the places we visited were unbelievably beautiful, especially that it was our first time to go to these places. We saw Maine for the first time and we saw York Wild Kingdom, the beautiful Portland Head Light, Arcadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Cadillac Summit, we also had a lobster meal which was fantastic, The tour was really well organized and their services were more than great. It was a great 4 day tour.
The whole tour was really great, but in my opinion the beat thing was Mystic Aquarium. Also the Acadia National Park In-depth Tour , and Acadia Nature Cruise were one of the great things we visited. The organization was really great, we moved according to schedule all the time and our tour guide was a real nice guy. Accommodation was also great, really clean and comfortable hotels though they were not 5 stars, the only thing that bothered me is that admissions were not included. Other than that it was amazing.
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 by the way. The accommodation was really comfortable, really clean and cozy hotels and we saw some amazing places. It was really a great tour and great experience. I really hope i can do it again some time.
I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy.
