It was really hands down trip to Washington DC, Smoky Mountains and Virginia. The tour was absolutely worth the money spent. The experience was made much better because of the absolutely excellent tour guides. They were very nice and genuine, and the knowledge that they had made the whole experience much better than it would have been had. Definitely Recommended!

I had always wanted to see the USA and I’m glad we got such an affordable package with GoldenBusTours. Although I wasn’t expecting a bus tour to be so good but it certainly was something to make me very happy. I got great accommodation on the package too. I must say when you’re traveling with family, GoldenBusTours should be your choice because it’s the best.
