I am a Mexican and have come here on personal work. The work is getting delayed and in the meanwhile I wish to see places on this tour package. I took this 4 day tour and so I liked visiting all these places that I had known only on the map.
I went with 4 naughty children of my friends. Of course, the 2 friends of mine also accompanied. A great experience, the stay at the hotel was above par. Children enjoyed the most and were taken good care by the guide and driver. I recommend this bus tour.
We board on this tour from New York and my wife and I were particularly excited to visit the Niagara Falls, after 2 years of waiting we finally get to see it, all thanks to GoldenBusTours. It was all worth the wait, the beauty was spontaneous, and we took a boat ride in the Niagara River Gorge. Afterwards, we head to Washington DC and Philadelphia and witnessed some more sights.
It was an amazing and memorable tour in my life. I went on this tour with my wife. The Scenic beauty we saw on the way to our destination was superb. I have had a great experience traveling with GoldenBusTours and I’d recommend this company to all those who want to travel with peace.
The best thing which I felt about this tour is the diverse locations being offered in one package. From Corning to Niagara and then Amish Farm to DC, every visited destination left me jaw-dropped.
The bus was luxurious, clean and this doubled the experience of this enjoyable tour. We girls loved going out, but taking a bus tour was the first attempt. We had a lovely experience at Niagara Falls. We took a lot of photos and posted on instagram, I recommend.
