I was excited to go on this tour by bus. I just wanted to go somewhere and thus stepped into this bus. The kids sitting behind me were naughty brats and it irritated me frequently. But for it the 6 day tour was amazing and no complaints.

Never thought I’d be able to see Niagara Falls, New York and the whole of Philadelphia and Baltimore in such affordable price. Tour guide was quite informative; he guided us through each part. The places of visit were worthy and I visited almost all the important places in this tour, than I had imagined. My wife accompanied me in this tour and we both had a great time. Absolutely remarkable tour and highly recommended!

I took this 6-day tour with my family. It was fun to see all the different places in New York, Detroit and other cities that we had not been to before. Guide was outstanding and he really kept the tour organized. We weren’t rushed from one place to another rather he let us enjoy everything at our own pace. I have already recommended it to my friend.

My husband on his holidays from his job was willing to take me to somewhere really nice and far away from our hometown for about a week. Thus, we found this suitable deal on Golden Bus Tours with discounts and experienced it for the first time. It went good. I was hoping to enjoy the tour and I did specially at Baltimore and Niagara, hotels were spectacular.

We have been to New York and Philadelphia many times, and this tour stood out because it was different than anything we had done previously. The cities and sights were varied enough to appeal to each of us over the days. Everything was so well planned and thought out that the whole trip was a pleasure and everything it was advertised to be. Thanks GBT!

My wife and I had such a great time together on this bus tour. It was the first tour I took by Golden Bus and it did go well. We stayed in fine hotels and the tour agent guided the places we visited. Hotels were not so luxurious but they were also not so bad. Niagara Falls was magnificent. It was great remember-able tour with my wife. I will remember it forever.

Henri

Not my first visit to these places, but first time I am visiting Philadelphia and Detroit. I liked these two places and wish to come once again in this tour. They cover all the places in 6 days and give enough time to make it a real tour.

It was an absolutely exotic trip. It had everything one would expect while touring with a tourist company. The attractions we saw on the way and at the destination were impressive. The boat ride to Niagara Falls made this tour more exciting. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Thanks Golden Bus Tours!

We friends wished to go on a tour to Niagara Falls taking our own vehicle, but unfortunately, we did not know much of the routes and had to take to this tour. Luckily this tour was really good. Apart from Niagara Falls, we visited so many places and this would have been impossible for us to drive to so many places. This is one of the best tours and they cover many places, the bus is good and so are the driver and the guide. They speak friendly and support even the seniors in the bus. It was a very nice tour.

Gong

I went alone on this tour and it was nice as I never felt bored even for a minute. The guide gave me good company as I was the only person traveling solo. This was advantageous as he gave me so much information about each place and I made it a point to note it in my diary.  Right now I am a bit busy, but will upload all the details. I was disappointed as my camera photos were not as expected. Something went wrong and only few photos are good. I need more good photos and so will go again on this tour.
