Places were amazing. We have more than enough time to explore the beauty of Niagara Falls. There are around 40 passengers in the bus, few of them were not on time and even don’t follow rules and instructions. This thing was irritating for us. The tour guide made this trip great. Recommended.
My wife and I recently returned from this trip and it really was an interesting tour to beautiful places. The travel guide handled the tour with expertise. He made us all very comfortable, had a good rapport and helpful. I’ll recommend GoldenBusTours to all because it’s worth the deal.

We came all the way from China to US for our holidays. During our stay in New York we decided to take this 3 days tour. GoldenBusTours customer representatives were very helpful throughout the booking process. During the tour we had a decent time. Our hotels were not too good but the places we visited made up for this.
What an unforgettable trip! Loved the surprises along the way during our first trip to Niagara Falls and thousand Islands! The food, the sites, all of the local guides all amazing and formed and epic experience for me and my family. Thanks to all associated with Golden Bus tours! I would definitely take a Golden Bus tour again.
I and my boyfriend booked them for the second time. We had a wonderful tour. I love the places and views. I was fascinated with the beauty of Niagara Falls and also enjoyed a lot at Ripley’s Aquarium.food at Skylon tower was very expensive. Thank God this time bus was comfortable so the journey was relaxed. Miss T. our guide was a nice and helpful lady but she did not explain about places.The bus driver was a very skilled man he gave his best in a bad weather. Hope to travel with him next time. Thanks.
I went with my girlfriend and we had the best 3-days of our lives. We never ever got a chance to enjoy this much like we did on this tour. We explored few of the most astonishing places and took amazing photographs. Our guide was great, he helped us a lot. It was the most romantic trip ever. I have recommended this trip to my friend who is planning her honeymoon soon.
This was a 3-day tour package that let me and family to explore maximum attractions at a decent price. Friendly staff, comfortable ride, scenic breathtaking views topped off by exuberant night activities. I have never seen any bus tour being so organized and carefully executed before We took really great photos at few attractions. Definitely a recommended tour!
Niagara Falls has always the place I wanted to visit the most, just because I don’t own any transport, therefore, I had to take golden bus tours deal to visit Niagara Falls. However, on our 3-day bus tour, we visited, Niagara, Toronto, Thousand Islands and few other attractions. Thanks for the great service.
My family took this tour and they had really nice time. The staff executed the tour very professionally; I only wish these 3 days were 6 days, so I could explore the Niagara Falls, Toronto and other places more. The guide was quite friendly and he made sure everything was going on as planned. I loved this trip. My friend is also thinking of going on the same tour soon.
These four days were sensational. Trip was fabulous and attractions were absolutely amazing. All the sights we saw were beautiful and appealing. I haven’t expected a better tour than this. We saw everything there was to explore. I would love to have some more trips with GoldenBusTours
I just loved and loved my vacations a lot just because of this tour. I think there won’t be any perfect honeymoon destination in this whole world than Thousand Islands.
Golden Bus Tours allowed us to have an in-depth tour of Toronto and Niagara Falls. Our tour guide was very friendly and the trip was very well organized. I had the best 3 days of my life on this trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to take a guided tour of the Toronto and Niagara Falls.
Toronto and Niagara Falls is definitely a nice place to spend your vacations. It was well organized, more than I expected and everything was done in a timely manner, and what a tour guide! I had the time of my life enjoying on this particular trip from Niagara Falls, Toronto, Skylon tower and thousand Islands. I’d recommend GoldenBusTours to everybody who wants to enjoy bus tours without any hassle
The Tour guide Suki W was fantastic, she prepared us for each attraction, giving us good details about it. She explained about the tax rates in Canada She was polite, helpful, took great care of us. Even clicking photographs of us together. The bus driver Antonio was good too. The hotel rooms were clean,comfortable, had AC, soft beds, several pillows, plenty of towels, coffee maker, hair dryer, soaps, conditioner lotions. These were very important to us. After a packed day the hotel is important for good rest. The Chinese seafood dinner with a big lobster each was delicious, so was the Skylon Tower lunch and Thousand Island Cruise breakfast. Care lines for the elevator at CN Tower is long and we did not like standing there so long... so finish the CN Tower quickly if you want more time at the Ripley\'s Aquarium...It is worth spending time there
Through this tour package we visited so many beautiful places which we only craved from the pictures. The facilities provided including the hotel and transport facilities were satisfactory. Guide helped us a lot during the whole tour. I am thinking of taking another tour soon wothGoldenBusTours.
We are a couple in our 60s, our daughter got us booked this tour. The tour guys were very courteous and even helped us with our luggage. My wife liked the hotel room too. We had a romantic lunch too at the revolving restaurant in the Skylon Tower just overlooking the falls.
The bus was in good condition and so was the tour, the accommodation was decent and that was expected as I had already traveled with them earlier. Visiting 1000 islands, Niagara Falls was something out of the blue. Earth, the wonderful planet has real beautiful places.
Overall experience was phenomenal. Never thought a bus tour could be so amazing. The booking experience with Golden bus tours was smooth and everything fell in place. I have never seen a better organized and carefully executed bus tour before. I will be recommending this tour to all my friends and family.
The overall experience was all I expected and more. What fantastic sights I witnessed everywhere I looked each and every day of our tour. I have always wanted to visit Niagara Falls so staying in few additional places was just the icing on the cake. We will definitely always travel with the Golden Bus family.
I always wanted to see the amazing Niagara Falls. This is like a dream come true. I get to visit the most beautiful places on earth. It was a bit short tour for my liking but nevertheless an amazing tour to be honest.
What a great way to spend our winter vacations. Niagara Falls was a spectacular place. We also visited Thousand Islands, Skylon Tower and other attractions. My family loved this trip and we all had a wonderful time. We hope we may be able to have further trips with Golden Bus Tours and wish good luck to your continuing endeavors..
This tour to Niagara Falls, Thousand Island a lot of other sites was like a dream come true for my wife and I. We had a really romantic time on such amazing places. The tour had everything to offer you could think of. All in all this was an amazing bonding trip with my wife which didn’t leave a dent in our pockets in terms of money.
It is always fun to plan vacation trips with family. My family booked this 3-dayrip for a week in summer holidays. It was a great tour and it didn't break our budget. Our guide did his best to keep us updated and our driver was amazing. I recommend Golden Bus Tours to all those who want travelling at an affordable rate.
We were looking for an affordable and a fun-filled trip package, so we came across Golden Bus Tours’ website and we booked an affordable two day Boston to Niagara, Corning Glass & Goat Island cruise tour for us. The guides were very friendly and helpful. We were able to visit each stop for an optimal amount of time, which let us take in the scenery and make amazing memories. Definitely recommend this to people looking for a change in scenery and a break from their hectic everyday schedules.
