For $215 I was able to enjoy an amazing 3 day tour that took me to Niagara Falls, Corning Glass Museum, Goat Island, Quincy Market and a lot of other places that I was able to explore at my leisure. I or the other people on the tour with me were not at all rushed from one place to another. Other tours I happened to experience herded us like goats from one place to another. I definitely recommend GoldenBus Tours to everybody.
Being my first time at the falls I was super excited and it was even more awesome than I expected. Specially the Maid of the Mist, it was the most adventurous thing that ever happened to me.
It was easy for my family to take this Golden Bus Tour of three complete days because the price was quite reasonable and they were offering special discounts, and the departure city was New Jersey, where I live. Golden Bus drove us to Niagara, Corning Museum, and we explored Boston city, we stayed in good hotels. It was one of the best tours of my life.
These 3 days were absolutely magical, at first we were worried about getting such a good deal, we thought there must be some hidden charges or something, but no. GoldenBusTours really proved their self the best when compared to the rest. Words cannot express the fun of taking a stroll at the Boston Quincy Market and watching illuminations of Niagara Falls at night.
I never knew that this tour would be full of fun for me. Either it is about shopping in Boston or viewing glass monuments in Corning Museum, I enjoyed a lot. You can also enjoy a lot by going there.
I was charmed by the beauty of all the places and we were given enough time to get into this mystic surrounding. The traveling comfort was assured. As usual the Niagara Falls took over all other visiting place. The scenic beauty of the Fall cannot be explained. I recommend.
I am definitely recommend this tour and suggest company to give more time to specific attractions like Niagara Falls, and shopping time is too less. but over all I will give this tour 5 stars. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
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 was really very well organized and we were accompanied by a very good tour guide, he was a young gentleman but he was very well educated and very well aware of the attractions we visited. The hotel was really cozy and clean which made us feel like we re at our home
Golden Bus Tours is really an amazing company, it was my first tour with Golden Bus Tours and i really intend to do it again. Great organization and punctuality, really nice and helpful tour guide who deserved his daily tip for sure, and very comfortable cozy and clean hotels. In my opinion this was one of the best tour companies. I just wish id admissions and food were included, that would have been really amazing.
Christopher S. Jones
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.
