Golden Bus Tours covers you completely when you book a trip with them. They get you proper accommodation, deal with your troubles and give you the best and most attentive service you’ll need. If you don’t believe my words, you can take a shot at it. The best thing that I like about Golden Bus Tours is the fact that they are very affordable. Even a guy like me whose working part time only could save enough for a 4 day trip and enjoy!

In this exciting four day tour we explored the scenic view and beauty of some of the remarkable places on earth. Places like Yosemite National Park, Fresno, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon South & West Rim and Hoover dam were simply the best. I must say, GoldenBusTours provided way more than I was expecting. Good work GoldenBusTours!

I thought to myself when we started the tour that 4 days are quite many days for a bus tour but when we finished the tour I didn't realize that the fours were gone. The tour was so great. The hotels were excellent, and tour agency was nice and explained the entire tour before departing. Grand Canyon was spectacular and the scenic sight of Yosemite National Park was extraordinary. I loved this tour.
