This was my first tour with any bus tour service. I like and enjoy the trip. The tour was very well planned, we visited all the places mention in the plan. The tour guide was a good and sensible man. He was dealing a responsible way. His hospitality is appreciated. Highly recommended.
It was a lovely and peaceful tour. I really enjoy every bit of this tour. Credit goes to the tour guide. He provided information regarding the places we visited and made the tour interesting and knowledgeable. He was a fun-loving man and friendly as well. On the other hand, he maintained the discipline very well. We have seen so many beautiful spots and gain great knowledge. The accommodation was just basic. I would definitely plan to take another bus tour with my family.
OVERALL: A must do. The price is reasonable and you get great tour of the East Coast with GoldenBusTours. Arrive early to get a good seat, maybe 20 minutes before the departure. We arrived about 10 minutes prior and got decent upstairs seating.
The views are great and if you care (I do), they go over the history of many of the things you pass along the way. I know a lot about the history of East Coast but our tour guide taught me a couple of new things. He was very helpful and friendly. Thanks Goldenbustours.
Golden Bus Tours is really an amazing company, it was my first tour with Golden Bus Tours and i really intend to do it again. Great organization and punctuality, really nice and helpful tour guide who deserved his daily tip for sure, and very comfortable cozy and clean hotels. In my opinion this was one of the best tour companies. I just wish id admissions and food were included, that would have been really amazing.
That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included, but was really very well organized and we were accompanied by a very good tour guide, he was a young gentleman but he was very well educated and very well aware of the attractions we visited. The hotel was really cozy and clean which made us feel like we re at our home.
