We had to board this bus tour as we were already looking out to explore such great sites as the Niagara Falls, DC, and New York City. The tour was on a discount and we received one free ticket on buying two, so it couldn’t get any perfect for us. Anyways, I would like to mention few things related to the bus tour. We reached Boston on our first day, where the bus started to NYC, where we had a wonderful nighttime excursion. The next morning, we explored the entire New York City and that was the best experience so far after the Niagara Falls fun. Great time spent in both the Philadelphia and Washington DC. We loved this bus tour.
According to our bus tour experience in the last winters, the journey turned out to be the best memorable tour with my entire family. We took great photographs no matter where went, and still exactly remember the stops and hotels. I also remember the time in the morning we just traveled straight to Philadelphia, despite traveling so far to Philadephia, we only spent a few hours there and then went to Washington DC from there. W should have spent more time in Philly, the city is full of attractions and I’m pretty sure that we would have had more there. However, the buses and hotels were economically fine. Good days!
I always thought of Washington DC to be one of the most boring places to explore on a bus tour because of the bold attractions such as the memorials, political sites, burial grounds, and all that. On this tour, we explored that city, and it came out to nothing like I expected it to be. We made stops at White House, National Mall, and mentioning the Space Museum which was a paradise for me and my kids. The full-day New York City Tour was also wonderful, but we got so exhausted by the end of the day. The Hudson River, Potomac River, Niagara River cruises were breathtaking. It was a great experience. Thanks a lot.
At the very beginning of the tour, it seemed quite reasonable with all visits to the top-notch sites with hotels and decent buses. Although we really had the time to explore and do much at Philadelphia and Washington DC, we had to stick to the tour schedule and travel where they were taking us. Maid of the Mist voyage was absolutely the best, we got even closer to Niagara Falls and got soaked in the mists of those gigantic falls. At the end of the days, our hotels were always the best, and we had reserved rooms for us without any waiting. Good tour.
This was a wonderful 5 days/4 nights tour, we had wonderful time, always the first one to arrived on the places visited. Our tour guide was very friendly and caters to our need. I recommend this tour, very affordable indeed. Thanks GoldenBusTours.
Again, though there were exceptions, I enjoyed the tour and writing a positive review because the tour guide was the nicest helpful guy I ever met. The tour guide deserves more than this comment. I would suggest the tour company notify exceptions before time when possible.
The tour was great for five days outing from Boston. Everything was on time and as expected. The tour guide was nice beyond expectation and I\'m specifically providing this review due to tour guide being such a great help. Due to bad traffic, Guide himself told that he would be dropping all of us at our home locations that were 30 minutes driving distance from the pick up/drop off location.
Nothing else than that This was a grave disappointment as we got the impression that they just wanted to return as quickly as possible to Boston. Overall not a bad trip but improvement needed to itinerary.
The 6:00 a.m. departure to Corning was much too early, especially after getting in late the night before. This made no sense. Those going on the cruise had to speed through Madame Tussaud\'s. The 3rd Day Itinerary however, was much too rushed. Overall, We enjoyed a lot.
Overall a good experience. The Tour Guide was excellent. Driver was OK. Hotels were nice. The refreshment stops were too Chinese oriented and we had a hard time finding regular cuisine, as there were a number of other nationalities on board.
I recommend this tour. Nicely planed trip. Enjoyed lot during visit of multiple places. Soothing Stay in hotels. Excellent tour guidance. It was great experience touring by Goldenbustours. The tour guide was really energetic, friendly, patient enough to take care of all the tourists.
