This was our first experience with Golden Bus Tours, and i am really happy we chose them. They do offer a great service and hospitality and the customer service team is great, we really enjoyed almost every activity, especially Niagara Falls. Also Corning Glass Museum was really amazing,Capitol Hill, White House, Thomas Jefferson Memorial in DC were great, and some other places in the tour also like Quincy Market, Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian Institution, Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was really a great 5 day vacation.

Very reasonable price! Total free and enjoyable time in Niagara Falls! Loved it. Good tour. I enjoyed my time in DC as well. Good services. The hotel was comfortable and tour guide was friendly. We need to get on the bus in New York by ourselves. Overall, pretty good experience.

Irakli Woronoff

Loved this tour. 5 days in East Coast is the right amount of time if you don\'t like to rush your vacation. I liked that the itinerary of the tour is so flexible, I planned one more day after the tour to visit my friends in Niagara Falls so I called Goldenbustours to see if they could help me to book one more night of the hotel room and they were pretty helpful. Thank you GoldenBusTours.
