I am a history lover and explore new historical places every year. This trip was very favorite of mine because of its historical destinations. I enjoyed visiting the Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Winery. I had a great time. I felt that trip was having certain other attractions including the jaw-dropping sights like the Great Smoky Mountains (park), Ruby Falls and Rock City. I can truly consider it one of my memorable trips. I felt that our tour guide was really too good in his knowledge regarding every single destination. Bus services were properly and timely managed.All services were good. Thanks to all who made this trip memorable and comfortable one. Highly recommended!
I am from Sri Lanka and I enjoy all kinds of the tour but night tours are very favorite of mine. Night tour of this trip was quite good and I enjoyed a lot. Omni Grove Park Inn night tour and Nashville Night Tour were really good and enjoyable. During day activities many attractions inspired me like Ruby Falls, Rock City Madame Tussauds Nashville and Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. It was a good trip for me in many aspects. I enjoyed the guidance of my tour guide and bus services but accommodation services were not up to the mark. I also enjoyed the food during this trip. Thanks
we had a great time during these 4 days. Our tour guide was a very helpful guy, he was also really funny and very professional . The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay. What an amazing job, really i would recommend Golden Bus Tours to any of my friends.
This is really a great company, this was our first time to use the services of Golden Bus Tours, and their service is really amazing, their customer service team is really helpful. We visited a list of great places like Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Winery, Omni Grove Park Inn, Titanic Museum, Great Smoky Mountain, Dixie Stampede, Madame Tussauds Nashville, Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum Lookout Mountain Incline Railway, Ruby Falls.
I really enjoyed my time during these 4 days, it was really a nice short vacation, we saw lots and lots of great places like Asheville, Biltmore Estate. I also enjoyed a lot the wine tasting in Biltmore Winery. Some other places that i enjoyed were Omni Grove Park Inn, Titanic Museum, Great Smoky Mountain, Dixie Stampede, Madame Tussauds Nashville, Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, Tennessee State Capitol, John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge.
Our tour guide was high energy and kept the mood lively in the bus. As other reviewers have noted, make sure to use the bathroom prior to boarding as there were no facilities on the bus Which is very bad, bathroom doesn\'t work and rest room as well.
We did this 4-Day Atlanta to Asheville, Chattanooga, Nashville, Great Smoky Mountain and Rock City Gardens Tour with our friends. We were a group of 10 people and used the offer buy 2 get 1 free. So, three of us came for free which is amazing. Thanks goldenbustours.
This was so fun. I\'ve always seen the buses driving around Atlanta but this was my first time on it. The tour guide was so witty, funny and smart. I also liked the information that the Bus gave us as we were driving by certain buildings, lots of information that I didn\'t know. If you\'re looking for something unique, fun and still educational hop on this bus tour.
