We booked this tour last week and had a great experience during this weekend. I must say Amazing service, great staff and awesome execution of the itinerary of the entire tour. What I loved most about this company is the fact that they don’t rush you from anywhere. You are free to enjoy the views to your heart’s content. Niagara Falls, Finger Lakes and Thousand Islands were mind blowing places.

The room we had was small to accommodate us. We were happy with all the other tour arrangements and places of visit. Had this been met as per our requirement, I would have given 5 stars.

I am a person who gets home sick pretty quickly so I always thought that three day tour will be very hard on me. However I have to say that GoldenBusTours made my tour very smooth and comfortable. The rates very within my budget and overall tourism facilities were fantastic.

At first I thought 3 days would be too long, I’ve never been away from home for more than 1 day, but my friend insisted me to take this tour on gun point (not really). I was worried for nothing, everything was perfect, the tour was very detailed, we visited some of the place in such low price, some people in other parts of world spend their lifetime saving on these tours, I feel kind of lucky. Experience was good. Thumbs up!
