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.
This was my second visit to Niagara Falls and Quincy market. I always love to explore Boston City. The Tour to Washington DC was an icing on the cake for me.
It was a great offer to explore the best attractions. We were taken to Washington DC, Quincy Market, Boston, Niagara Falls and New York in an exciting 4-day guided tour. A great package with discounted offers and I definitely recommend it.
I went with my sister for this four day trip and I totally enjoyed going to different places. The tour guide was quite friendly and he made sure every person was doing well. It was a Kickass trip and we had so much fun, made new friends. I also enjoyed the stay and the hotel facilities.
I think I couldn’t ask for more after travelling to such stunning locations like Boston, NiagaraFalls and NYC. Hey Pals! You must go for this trip. I am damn sure you’d enjoy it a lot.
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.
We were absolutely surprised at the deal we got. We were a group of five friends on our first ever trip to New York. When we checked online, we got to know that GoldenBus Tours was offering an affordable package in which we were able to see Washington DC, Quincy Market, Boston, Niagara Falls, New York and a lot of significant other sites in two days only. GoldenBus Tours has made loyal customers of us because of its affordability and quality of service.
Who needs personal transport to places like these when you have access to GoldenBusTours. Without a doubt they provide best transport and accommodations. I enjoyed every bit of this tour. From exploration of New York to Niagara Falls beauty everything was amazing, Guide was great. I would definitely recommend it to all friends.
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.
not going to say that we had entirely a luxury experience, but the tour was great in a certain way. I have to take my kids and family on this trip, just so we could all enjoy visiting the far-distanced sites like the Niagara Falls. I would like to admit the Maid of the Mist Cruise experience as one of the best experience since we ship moved through the majestic falls and it really took over breathes away. I don’t know why the Radisson hotel doesn’t get any better, but the rest of the hotels on our trip ware great like Courtyard Marriott Hotel. I think my kids loved the trip more than anybody else on board. Cheers!
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!
