A very professional tour, I must accept. We are 3 girls and had booked this 6 day bus tour. We requested our parents to let us go and truly the bus tour brought us a new experience that we are planning the next tour with them. The tour was safe.
Up until now I had only seen MT. Rushmore in pictures. I had some holidays coming up so I decided to visit MT Rushmore for once, so I grabbed this deal, GoldenBusTours really handled it all very professionally; they know what they are doing. I end up visiting a lot of other fascinating places as well such as, Cheyenne, Devil’s Tower, Crazy House, Yellowstone NP, Grand Teton NP, and Mormon Temple.
I traveled with my wife and 1 year old son (I know it was a tough decision); but if you prepare yourself with baby food requirements, you can do it. There is no doubt about how beautiful this tour is. Tour of life-time.Wonderful support from guide and driver. I really loved how both guys supported us. I have no words, I just recommend with 10/10.

Indeed the Yellowstone National is a humungous natural park in our country; and to be honest, I was bit concerned that we might miss out must-see spots of it, nevertheless we didn’t. Thanks to the excellent tour service that we fully relish the time spent at the destinations as well as the Badlands National Park. In fact, those majestic mountains of Teton and Devils monument were definitely a natural masterpiece. We snapped like thousands of photographs. Thanks for appropriate service! Best!!
It was lovely seeing around the famous national parks of our country; apparently, this tour was the best deal I could get from Denver. The bus tour, overall, was a luxury experience since we were provided with comfortable buses, a friendly tour guide, good destinations, and importantly the hotels were fine throughout our course of the trip. Yellowstone National Park is majestic- the hot colorful geysers just fascinating. Thanks!
In an early morning we packed our bags to take this tour and departed from Denver. Golden Bus Tour drove us to so millions of fascinating attraction in American such as Mormon Temple, Coors, Brewing Company, and Glenwood. The best part about the tour was the hotels: they were the best and couldn’t for anything better than that. Thanks Golden Bus Tour.
My boss, when I arrived at my job office at Denver for the first time, offered and gave me the tickets of Golden Bus six days bus journey. I was excited because I was never been to America. However, Mormon Temple and Great Salt Lake were the best places. Golden Bus Tours offered us such nice hotels to spend the night. A terrific journey you can say.
This 6 day tour consist of pretty much all the places I hope to see in US, I’ve seen Mount Rushmore in Pictures but for the first time I get to visit the giant faces in person. Not only was that everything from Devil’s Tower to Glenwood Canyon a thrilling experience. Cheers GoldenBusTours!
I wouldn’t say that my experience on this tour was a perfect one, but the places we got to tour like the Yellowstone, Badlands Park, Mormon Temple on this bus journey was really majestic. How could I miss the Devils Tower and Teton Peaks? They surely were amazing, however, though the lodging at the Sheridan was not just as luxurious and classy as compared to rest of the hotels in which we stayed including the Spring Hill Marriott. Our tour team was awesome as they guided everybody and let us have all fun and excitement we wanted. Good Days!
As we got holidays from our work, I decided to take my kids and family ours on this bus tour. First, there was a huge discount on our tickets, since we had so many to buy. We all had a wonderful time on board, so many great places to visit like Dear Country, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Salt Lake City, and many others I could name. However, the trip could have been a lot better if we could spend time at a certain site according to our will. Anyways, those were some good old days with family! Cheers.
