Memorable tour. The whole team was active and professional. The route was lovely. I travel with my wife and we enjoyed the whole tour. We were 10 travelers on the bus. The guide did a good job. We taste the specialties of every area, food was amazing. I can never forget the taste of Blueberry Muffin and Pumpkin Pie. Mark Twain House and Museum was the best place we ever visited, it is just like living history. Except one hotel all hotels were neat and clean. I want to travel again with this tour company. Recommended.
Very well organized tour. We covered almost all the places mentioned in the itinerary. It was a very informative tour. The guide was a clever man; he really knows how to satisfy all customers. The team was professional. Selected hotels were basic but the offered breakfast was good. I must add a few things per my experience that in many places we had to pay an extra money it must be handled by the tour guide or company. Loved the trip want to come again. Highly recommended.
Great fun and experience. Very professional people to travel with and not a single moment you feel bored or uninterested. Hotels were upto the mark and the cleanliness was appreciable. I was concerned about the bedbugs in the hotels before joining the tour but there was no such thing. The guide and driver were also very helpful. Totally recommend!
We had a really quality time! I planned this tour especially for kids keeping in mind that they need a vacation and absolutely worth trying this whole time was. We had a great 6 days outcome and overall a blast! Meals were good and the guide specially was very helpful. The bus condition was also reasonable. I would love to join another tour with GoldenBusTours!
Time spent in NYC and Boston was great. The best thing about this tour is that you get to learn so much about the culture and see new places in a short duration. It was a very decent experience especially with having the tour guide. Fully recommend.
This tour was magnificent. Our tour guide, talked generally excellent english and continually took care of our each need. We saw such a great amount in such a brief span. Characteristic miracles disclosed to us by our bilingual visit control included so much profundity and happiness into our excursion. It was our second tour with your organization and we intend to keep on booking visits with GoldenBus. Much thanks.
