NYC night tour, Statue of Liberty cruise, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Boston, what did we miss out on such a comprehensive tour that we took with GoldenBusTours. I am certainly impressed with this company because they give you everything in such affordable price. Who would have thought about touring so many cities in just $530 per head and getting accommodation and traveling in a luxury bus all in it?
NYC is the most expensive city of the world so I preferred shopping in Philadelphia. It is such a wonderful place for shopaholics. The Corning Museum and Niagara are amazingly awesome places.
I had been with my friend and the tour was an epic. Really memorable and so to make this stronger we have sealed it with plenty of photos. In the 6 day tour so many photos that we had to delete quite a lot of photos to make space, well enjoyed.
The bus tour was good, though I had doubts initially about their organizing style. Of course, there were lapses here and there; rest there was nothing uncomfortable about the tour. Everyone was pleased with the tour and the comfort of the bus.
The tour was absolutely worth the money spent. I would definitely give five stars to this tour and thumbs up to this company for arranging such a good tour. I am very impressed with GoldenBusTours. I will surely be taking another tour soon.
For those who want affordable tours and yet want to see most of the USA, I’d recommend them GoldenBusTours. This is because this company not only gives you affordable tours but also ensures that you enjoy them to the max. What I really liked about GoldenBusTours is the fact that they keep their guests on top priority and never fail to accommodate you in the best manner.
This was a god sent opportunity for me. I could not afford to spend, and so though I wished for a very long time to visit these places, I could not make it. Luckily my sister's daughter invited me, and I made this call the best use. She wanted my assistance as she had a baby. I readily helped her and before leaving for my home, she got me tickets on this tour bus, so that I see all the important places and have a long lasting memory. I was very happy and am unable to believe that I have seen all the places.
I have been staying here for over a year and could not get 6 days to go on this tour. This is an elaborate tour and so there is a need for these days and that was difficult. Somehow I managed to get the chance and made up to this tour. I took all the pictures and photos so that I believe myself that I have visited all these places in a week’s time. The only disappointing thing was on the last day straight from the tour I had to go to the office and that was literally very boring.
