There was a similar tomorrow which was slightly cheap but I preferred this one just because of the two nights stay in Yellowstone National Park. Since, my main purpose was to explore the Yellowstone National Park therefore I think it was worth spending extra on this tour.The night view from the balcony of my hotel room was exceptional. I really loved the beautiful view from the room. I would have shared pictures but I do not see any option to upload them here.
It was our second tour with the company. Previously we booked an East Coast tour and this time around we decided to go with a Yellowstone tour. The best thing about the tour was the two night stay in Yellowstone National Park. We are vegetarian and our tour guide was a very nice person as helped us find the vegetarian food. On the whole they are a very professional company and we will definitely book again with them.
Our group of 5 friends really enjoyed the tour. The deal breaker for us was the two night stay in Yellowstone national park. We almost had 2 days to explore the Yellowstone and we visited all the major points. I really liked the Old Faithful geyser. The only issue was that they did not allowed to use the restroom on the bus. I am not sure why but they must have some strong reason.
Great value for money! My husband planned this tour for me and our kids, every one of us enjoyed it fully. We have had a great experience with the travel agency Goldenbus from the beginning till the end of the tour. Bus was comfortable and so was the Hotels. I personally would love to join these people again as this is a very cheap option and appealing to everyone. All the accommodations were neat and tidy. Tour guide was professional and very helpful with all the arrangements especially conducting the tour. Would love to join them again and completely recommend this company and tour.
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, really clean and extremely cozy. We visited Yellowstone and stayed there for 2 whole nights, and we really enjoyed Grand Teton National Park, as there is some of the major mountains and peaks which are as long as 40 miles.
There were lots and lots of amazing places and activities in that tour, like Yellowstone National Park, Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone Canyon, Yellowstone Fall, Grand Prismatic Spring, Fountain Paint Pot, Jackson, Grand Teton National Park, State Capitol building. My only issue is that admissions were not included. But it was really worth it since we stayed for 2 nights in Yellowstone, and our hotels were really clean and comfortable. Also our tour guide was really nice and helpful and he really deserved his daily tip.
The greatest thing in that tour was the amazing Yellowstone National Park, it was more than great, and the best part is that we spend 2 nights in West Yellowstone, we really also enjoyed the other places like Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone Canyon,Grand Teton National Park, State Capitol building, Temple Square of Mormon Church. The tour was very well organized and there were no delays, always moving according to the schedule. I loved the accommodation and transportation. It Was a great 4 day vacation

The bus was okay and hotels were great, really clean and extremely cozy. We visited Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park. I just wish if admissions were included in the tour price.
I think Golden Bus worked superbly. My Tour was actually as expected. The transport was perfect and on schedule. The guide was speaking my language and the staff was more than cordial and accommodating. This is the most ideal approach to ride through all pieces of the city and get an extraordinary outline of places you are visiting on the off chance that you have never been there. Most stops were all around checked and I experienced no difficulty getting the bus again after I had gotten off to see something.
It was an excellent tour.The visit has secured all the important points of Yellowstone and stupendous Teton national park . The schedule was rapid however is worth as it shrouded everything in so brief period. Guide was great! The driver was incredible (such a decent driver)! I have never been on such a visit, however I was awed with the visit verifying we saw every one of the sights. Be careful, it is an energetic visit packing. I certainly recommend this agency and the tour.
I would suggest this tour, guide was decent and supportive who helped us non Chinese speaking .Hotels are clean might want to see the hotels in yellow Stone with fridge and microwave in the room. Overall the visit was great in the event that you need to see a few destinations in short time.Expect to pay in cash and eat variety of meals ,food courts on the grounds that the natural pecking order are huge and have a lot of choices.
That tour was really fun, it was our first time to visit Yellow tone, and we really enjoyed it, We spent 2 nights there and our hotels were really clean and cozy, we also enjoyed the other activities like Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone Canyon, Yellowstone Fall, Grand Prismatic Spring, Fountain Paint Pot, Jackson, Grand Teton National Park. I also want to thank our tour guide for his patience, he was really helpful and friendly. In my opinion this was one of the best tour companies i dealt with for a really long time.
