Excellent tour! I took this tour with my brother, and it was so much fun! We travelled all the way from New York to take this tour from Chicago, and it was totally worth it! From start ,till the end, we were enjoying every bit of this. Niagara falls as I always heard were exciting, but I fell in love with the essence of it as soon as reached there, and then we spent an entire day there! Such a beautiful place! Amazing trip, and definitely a must-go tour.
The tour was well planned, and I must say it was well thought off. However when we went to Niagara falls, it was very crowded, so I think we shouldn’t have stayed there for more than a few hours. Infact, Cleveland and Detroit were more exciting than that. The rest, accomodoation and transportation were up to the mark. It is a must go tour if you are taking your annual holidays off, and want to spend a good time travelling around with your family. This tour is designed for nearly all age groups, so you’ll enjoy it to the core.
I would really like to thank Golden Bus Tours for organizing that tour, it was really great and well organized and punctual. Next i was to thank the tour guide who was really a stand up guy, he was very helpful and very professional and really funny. great Job Golden Bus Tours. I would really like to use your services again, but next time i would visit the West coast.
The great thing about that tour is that it had an amazing tour guide, very skilled and he was really friendly and helpful and patient, he was nice to all people in the tour. We also liked the accommodation very much, hotels were very comfortable and clean, we like all places we visited like Henry Ford Museum, General Motors Headquarters, Chinatown, Ontario’s Provincial Parliament, CN Tower, Old Fort Niagara, Whirlpool State Park, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, and Chicago.
In my opinion this was one of the best travel agencies i have dealt with, The tour was really very well organized, there was no delay and we were always on schedule. also the tour guide was really nice guy and funny, and he were also very professional. The bus was okay and hotels were great, we really loved Henry Ford Museum, General Motors Headquarters, Chinatown, Ontario’s Provincial Parliament, CN Tower, Old Fort Niagara, Whirlpool State Park, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, and Chicago.
That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included, but to be honest it was wort it. We really loved the organizing and service of that company, we really loved Henry Ford Museum, General Motors Headquarters, Chinatown, Ontario’s Provincial Parliament, CN Tower, Old Fort Niagara, Whirlpool State Park, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, and Chicago.
Our Tour guide took us to the Rainbow Bridge and we looked at it from across the lake. Five minutes and then we were asked to get back to the bus. We were not able to see any museum which was promised if there was no cruise. His English was really bad and it put additional stress on passengers who were not Chinese.

This is a trip for natural lovers, the people who love nature and history. My kids were really excited to get to Niagara Falls as both of them like to paint and are born artist. Perfect accommodation, Comfortable buses and Great tour guide. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
I and my kids thoroughly enjoyed the panoramic view at the CN Tower and my kids really wanted to sketch the beautiful city of Toronto. Our tour guide took care for all of us. He kept asking if we need anythings. Driver also was helpful and friendly. Highly recommend GoldenBusTours.
