We booked with GoldenBus Tours from Sri Lanka for our trip to USA and received the best service we’ve ever experienced overseas. After spending time on a 5 day tour to LA, LV and other places with the company and experiencing good standards of services, we will definitely recommend GoldenBus Tours to everybody who wants a comprehensive, well detailed tour without any rush. The best part was the accommodations which although weren’t five star but weren’t short on the quality of services either.
I love gardens and on reading the visit mainly covering botanical gardens, I chose to be on this bus tour. The bus boarding was a problem, but I was not helped by the guide and so a bit setback. However, on the whole, the entire tour was good.
Traveling to botanical gardens interested me as I am a botany teacher and like to know about plants species and its history. This tour looked like it was set for me and I had all the privilege to ask questions, but some went unanswered as they also did not know details.
From the Botanical Gardens to the Grand Canyon, a thing that I enjoyed most is the sightseeing from the bus. It’s really true that any tour can be enjoyed well during travel.
We had an amazing time on that tour, i just wish that we spent more time there. It was my first time to visit the great Grand Canyon, and it was more than great! i also loved Ethel M Chocolate Factory and the Botanical Cactus Gardens so much, the tour guide was an amazing guy, when we told him that this was our first time he took extra care of us. The hotels were great along with the bus. It was really worth it
The best thing i loved about that tour was the tour guide, because that guy was really polite and patient, and he was very helpful to us. I loved the Grand Canyon so much, and the accommodation we had was very decent, the hotels were really clean and comfortable. This was my first time to deal with Golden Bus Tours, and i really loved it, they did a great job.
We really were happy with that tour, we visited some magnificent places like Grand Canyon and Ethel M Chocolate factory and Cactus garden. The tour was well organized and really punctual, we moved on time without any delays, there were a couple of things that i did not like, the first thing is that there was no bathroom in the bus, and secondly, we had to pay extra for tips and admissions.
