I remember the last time went to Niagara Falls, it was an awful experience, however, this time we toured it on the bus tour. I loved how the bus team treated their guests and we thoroughly had a luxury experience, from hotels to destinations ad drop-off service. We spent the day of our trip just wandering the New York City, and it was the best day of the trip after the Niagara Falls day. Plus, we took a lot of great photographs. I will always remember this bus vacation, thanks for providing us great services, as well as the best destinations with such an impressive provision. Thumbs up!

I now realize the value of writing reviews. Now that we had to go on a bus tour, my children started looking for reviews. So after our visit, I wish to say about this bus tour.

After the winter, seeing the sun shining, we planned for this tour and enjoyed the tour as per our expectation. Yes, there were little slips such as the accommodation we wanted was for the 1st floor, but we were given room in the 2nd floor. This tour for 4 days to Boston, Quincy market and Niagara Falls was splendid.

Visiting Washington for the first time was a great experience. The tour was well planned and we had plenty of time to explore the great city. The thing which I liked about Golden Bus Tours is their discounted offer which obviously is a great help.
