Overall the trip was good. The bus was clean and the seats were comfortable. Our tour guide was very friendly and the trip was very well organized. I would recommend this trip for people who do not like to drive long distances, because you can relax and also will get to see a few other attractions such as Liberty Bell, Constitution square, Congress Hall, Amish Farm within 4 days.
When I headed to Philadelphia, I was amazed by seeing the creativity and art used in construction of historic buildings. New Jersey is also an ideal destination for families and couples.
This was the first time I went for honeymoon with my husband on this tour. It was an amazing experience of my life to spend four days without any stress and tensions of life.
If you want to have in-depth tour of Washington DC and Philadelphia, not only that you’ll also get to visit Niagara Falls and other attractions as well. I took this tour quite recently, I wasn’t disappointed, everything handled by the GoldenBus people was professional, and the guide was experienced as well. I’m thinking of taking of another tour if another good deal like this comes up. Cheers!
A four day trip which was simply amazing! It was the best executed tour I have ever attended. The guide was a great help too. Thank you Golden bus tours for making it happen. My favorite bit was the Watkins Glen Canyon and Niagara Falls. I also enjoyed the stay and the hotel facilities. Will certainly recommend it and be back again.
I must say thanks to GoldenBus Tours for arranging such an amazing tour for us. I had the best 4 days of my life touring almost an amazing bunch of places starting from Washington DC. From the beginning GoldenBusTours helped us with each and every detail possible. The company’s representative guided us well during the planning and put our reservations and requirements ahead of anything. I’d definitely recommend the company to everybody.
I am very eager to share my experience about this bus tour. As everything was well organized, I want to put it in words, so that it benefits the tour operator and other people. The golden bus as a 4 day package tours is a great choice for locals and tourists.
The bus tour is appreciative. Clean and rightly accommodative bus, though the seats were not to satisfaction. It was a bit hard and would have been good if it was plushy. Visiting Niagara Falls kept me contented and the other places such as New Jersey and Philadelphia in this tour made it very special.
