After engagement, this was our first outing on this bus tour. I liked the very thought of being together and we loved this tour package. Golden bus tours were excellent and the 5 day tour was the best. I visited the best places that were prominent.

This entire trip have made so fresh and stress-free. I am a working lady and was so fed up with the same boring work schedule. You should also consider this tour for a change.
