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.
After I moved to New York, I haven’t been able to explore the enthralling Niagara Falls properly or you can say completely. This time I decided to book a tour. Fortunately, this tour provided me with the best experiences and enabled me to explore the notorious Niagara Falls properly. The fine transportation and hotels made our time much more valuable. The stop at the Watkins Glen State Park was the best part in the package. Lucky for me that I had brought a camera with me to capture the breathtaking scenes at the Niagara Falls Illumination.
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.
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.
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!
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.
