On this 3-day tour we visited Niagara Falls, Corning Museum and Philadelphia that totally took my breath away. The whole tour was only of three days we bought tickets on special discounts that include hotel services. It seemed like the perfect family trip. Great Tour!
The way Golden Bus tours let us explore Niagara Falls and Washington; I don’t think any other tour agency would have that experience and quality service to provide that. We had an amazing time during our tour. I will recommend this trip to my sister’s family who are planning to go for a family vacation.
Although we’ve traveled excessively, we’ve never enjoyed so much and that too with such affordability. There isn’t a better company than GoldenBusTours which can plan and carry out bus tours with such detail. The guide was very helpful as well. We explored Corning Museum, Niagara Falls, Philadelphia and Washington DC in this 3-day tour. GoldenBus Tours has certainly done a wonderful job arranging such detailed tours at these prices.
The falls were spectacularly stunning. And we had a great time sightseeing and boat cruising. The people we toured with were really very pleasant, the guide was witty and knowledgeable and the trip was simply grand. The day was filled with a lot of fun activities and the hotel we were booked in was quite clean and hospitable. God bless this company and I’m definitely travelling with them again.
In the 3-day trip we got to visit few of the most beautiful places. From transportation, Hotels, Guide to Service and security everything was just perfect. I would love to have some more trips with GoldenBusTours
The 3- day guided tour was interesting as the guide knew a lot about all the places. It was nice to know about everything and to take good rest at the hotel. The transportation was convenient and the driver ensured a safe travel. I recommend this bus tour.
It was magical! The hotels were fun & the staff was so kind. I enjoyed every minute and everybody on the tour. I definitely want to revisit. It was so much fun sharing this experience with an amazing group of people, including our outstanding guides. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends.
This was a trip that we have been planning for quiet a sometime but Golden Bus Tours finally made us visit Niagara Falls, Washington and few other beautiful places. I had a great first time experience with Golden Bus Tours. From transportation, Hotels, Guide to Service and security everything was just perfect. Thank you for such an amazing tour Golden Bus!
As a bus tour, this tour was fair. Not a bad experience, though nothing outstanding. It was going on a bit on and off schedule, we missed nothing. We went to the Niagara Falls, took quick photos so that we do not get late, but also visited Philadelphia and Washington DC.
We have experienced a great tour by picking up this 3days niagara-washington dc-philadephia tour. Tour guide Seon and Rachel were a great tour guides ever. They were excellent professionally and personally. They have managed hotel stay perfectly as well. They gave all needed to know information for every attraction. They guided for food options too. Everytime they were concerned about tourists comfort and all facilities. And not the least Driver was really good. Smiling and greeting everytime and his driving skills were excellent. I would strongly recommend this tour company to everyone. They really take efforts to make your experience beautiful. Thank you Golden tours, guide Seon and Rachel.
The reason for us to board this 3-day journey on the bus was the Niagara Falls attractions. We have been looking out for better deals that could help us get around that beautiful place. Fortunately, we found this new bus tour that has all the things we were looking out for, although all the information was mentioned on the internet page of the company we still call their front desk and asked for the discount tickets for the bus. It was quick easy to just book the tour seats on the internet. Speaking on behalf of my family who also boards the journey along with me, they started to enjoy the bus tour we kept going deep into the Niagara Falls Park. The tour guide was always there to help us out, yet the tour leader helped us get around the Niagara Fort and the Whirlpools on a paid journey. Love the trip? It definitely deserves a massive appreciation.
Well, we like the first and the very last of the journey. However, our journey started out quite well from the New York, we traveled so much on our first day, we had to reach the Niagara Falls from New York by the end of the day, yet we made a brief stop at the Watkins Glen Park to browse all the gigantic waterfalls, rivers and gorges, and so on. The night view at Niagara Falls just blew our minds, there were this massive lights decorated all around the Niagara Falls, during the nighttime, the view was so magical- really impressive! We traveled throughout the Washington DC visiting all the memorials, museums, monuments, and White House of course. Too bad, the White House is closed for the public, but it looks so huge from close up. We loved every second on this bus tour. Thanks for this great bus tour with hotel two-day hotel stays.
We were absolutely surprised at the deal we got. GoldenBusTours offered us 1 free ticket on purchase of 2 so it turned out to be an affordable trip for me and my 2 friends. We went to the Corning Museum, Niagara Falls, Washington and many other places that we totally enjoyed. I have recommended this plan to my colleagues.
It was a breathtaking experience for me. Visiting Niagara Falls was my dream and I got to see much more than Niagara Falls in this great tour package offered by GoldenBusTours. It was just a 3-day tour to many places but we managed to have a glimpse of everything in great detail. Great tour!
On this journey we weren’t expecting it to be so short, as we just started to have fun on the tour, the three days got finished, and with the help of our friendly tour person who later guided us on how we could just join another ongoing trip after the three days gets over on this journey. It was easy and comfortable to travel on the tour buses, they seemed to be quite neat with a decent driver and tour guide on the bus to assist all the passengers on board. Now, that we have visited so many places I would like to add the best one which we had the best time exploring. Starting off with the Niagara Falls, then the Potomac River boating, White House, Space Museum – all collectively made our tour so wonderful!
I think that 50% of nature’s beauty are present Philadelphia and Niagara Falls. I wish I could live in the premises of such breathtaking locations. One should plan for this tour at least once.
This was a three day adventure trip that blew my mind. From buses to hotels everything was top class. We had so much fun on this tour and the hotel in which we stayed was magnificent that we couldn’t ask for more. It was one hell of an interesting experience. Golden Bus Tour is the best. Thanks
I went on this three day guided tour with my wife on honeymoon andThis it was amazing. It was well planned and my honeymoon went better than expected. We explored Niagara Falls, Washington and many other beautiful places. It has been a wonderful experience thanks for everything! I have recommended this three days trip to a lot of people.
By the end of the last summer, my family was planning an adventurous yet super fun tour for all the members of our family. It was already the end of the summer holidays, so it was just a few days for our family to be together before everyone goes to their specific region for the jobs. My younger brother, Evan, came up with this bus tour which had the departure location just a few blocks ahead of where we live. We all got excited about this bus tour, gladly, the tour team gave us a reasonable discount for buying a couple of tour seats for the family. I would definitely suggest everyone bring the camera, walking shoes, and good warm clothes in order to tour the Niagara Falls in the winter season. Washington DC was also a huge fun for, there was just so to do and explore. The hotels were super nice.
I was looking for few days off from work to go on a recreational trip and I found this deal from Golden Bus Tours very interesting. I had heard a lot about Golden Bus Tours so without any second thought I booked this package and it was worth it. I never had a better chance to explore these places before. I really enjoyed these three days. I would definitely recommend this tour company to everyone.
We, group of six travel enthusiast, booked this attractive package offered by Golden Bus Tours. We have travelled a lot of places all over the world but it was our goal to witness Corning museum and Niagara Falls from US side. Hence, we took this deal and we had the time of our lives. Golden Bus Tours is one of the best company I have travelled with in the whole world. They manage everything for you. You just have to sit back and enjoy the tour. I would surely recommend this company.
Our experience of seeing Niagara Falls and boat ride just blew us away. The surrounding of Niagara Falls was magical. Corning Glass museum and remarkable places in Washington were excellent. Hotels were luxurious and Busses were in perfect conditions. Thank you Golden Bus Tours for such a great tour. We would like to get on board for another tour.
The bus guide helped each tourist with knowledge and assistance, if required. This trip was fabulous. The facilities were pleasing and the Golden bus tours services were great. I enjoyed most part of the trip. I recommend Golden Bus Tours to all those who want travelling at an affordable rate.
This was a first for me as I have always planned and organized my own trips. I cannot believe how many amazing places we saw. My hope was to reach the end of the tour with the affirmation that it was truly worth each of those investments. I can say that it exceeded my expectations. I can’t resist telling other people about how great this trip was.
Although there are so many tours offered by Golden Bus Tours, but, one three day tour to Philadelphia, Washington and Niagara Falls was suitable for me and my family to visit. On this three day tour day, we explored all the finest attraction there were to explore. I will keep looking for a good deal on GoldenBusTours. Thank you!
On this three day guided tour, Me and my kids visited the most prestigious locations in and around New York, the American, the Bridal Veil, the Horseshoe Falls, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Lincoln Memorial, Capitol Hill and the White House and many more. The booking with golden bus tours went well and so did the entire trip. I will surely recommend this package to my friends.
We have enjoyed each and every moment throughout our 3 day Golden Bus tour. Our tour guide Justin is very knowledgeable, helpful and best in his work. Justin managed our trip in best way and made sure we get sufficient time to visit each tourist attractions. Kudos to Justin! Hotel rooms were clean and beds were comfortable, overall stay was pleasant. Tour is planned in a way that bus will stop in every 2-3 hours. Niagara fall was the best experience among others attractions. Thank you Golden Bus tour for making our trip memorable. I would definitely recommend Golden Bus tour for any tour package.
