A very decent 6 day trip with amazing itinerary! I was satisfied with timing of places because there was having enough time at all attractive places. There was proper arrangement of seats and was never any technical issue in the bus. I was impressed by the maintenance of the bus. I was attracted towards the places like Universal Studio tour and Disneyland Theme Park in this entire trip (once you are in this theme park you are in the fantasy world and it also takes to your childhood). I was lucky to be a part of amazing bus tour because I felt myself not only in the surrounding of beautiful destinations but was also in protective hands of team. Thanks a lot for all this an much more that o felt in this entire trip!

A happy blended trip with fun and VIP feeling! This bus was of good size to accommodate us and there was a good amount of people in this. I must say that inside environment of bus was very noisy but was handled professionally when guide used big screens for displaying videos and his interesting style of presentation was very interesting for all the passengers. Destinations like Apple Park Visitor Center and San Francisco city tour were the top experiences for me and I went totally passionate for clicks on such amazing beauties. A lot of hard work of this bus tour in all 6 days needs a lot of appreciation and big 5 stars from my side with all my heart.

This beautiful trip was enough in itself to be the top notch for the visitors but after experiencing it I must say that it was the best decision of my life to join this. There was love, jokes, comfort, activities, amazing food and breathtaking destinations. All was in one package in this 6 days tour! You need not to be worried about anything once you are in this bus. you are stress free and in good hands. A lot of appreciation and highly recommending it to others! Thanks

I am from India and was deeply impressed by this bus tour. There were many foreigners in this bus tour. I loved the style of our tour guide who accommodated so well all the foreigners in this amazing bus tour. His grab on many languages inspired me a lot. I loved all the destinations of this trip and enjoyed San Francisco city tour and The University of California the most in this intact tour. I want to thanks all the team for being amazing servers and to make me feel really VIP feeling throughout the trip. I do recommend it to destination lovers and to all those who want to be served amazingly. Excellent job!

Flawless nature of trip with amazing nature of destinations was the recognition of this tour. We were happy that we were always ready on mentioned time and bus was also there to pick us on mentioned time. This discipline of strictly following the timing is worth mentioning. I liked almost all places but Disneyland Theme Park and Solvang were very beautiful places in all ways. Thanks a lot with thumps up for a flexible tour!

It was a trip of going into the buildings to explore them by being a part of them (and honestly it was the best learning opportunity as well). We were not at distance but driver was dropping us at nearest possible place of amazing destinations and inside story was explained by guides in an amazing way. It was a team work that was very obvious in its all steps. I must say that it was capturing the top attractions in it and exceptions were Yosemite National Park and California Central Valley. I highly recommend it to others because missing such a nice bus tour is like missing the best happening thing of your life. Recommend to all.

A very manageable 6 days trip with soft and simple nature! I enjoyed every second of this tour and trust me best ever memories. It was a trip of amazing destinations where the beauty of places was never allowing going without capturing them in cameras. I will go with the places like Pier 39 and California Central Valley in this whole trip. I want to add about the inside environment of bus where music was exactly the peace to ears. Driver was so gentle in his driving. His local knowledge was enough to make the journey easier. Happy trip went amazing and joining this trip with your love ones is always going to be a good selection in all possible aspects. A lot of gratefulness with all my heart.


I have always wanted to visit Yosemite National Park, i use to see it only in TV, but this was my first time to actually go there, and i never knew it was this beautiful, it was really amazing park, we also really loved the San Francisco part where we visited Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman\'s Wharf, Alcatraz Island and Cable Car. Also one of the great things was Universal Studios and Disneyland. we had a great time on these 6 days, i would really like to thank Golden Bus Tours for organizing that amazing tour package.


we had a great time during these 5 days, our tour guide was a very helpful guy, he was also really funny and very professional,i really wish all tour guides are like that. The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay and even during the tour we were right on schedule. I loved the accommodation so much as hotels were not 5 stars but they were really clean and cozy enough to us. We loved Yosemite national park, Silicon Valley, Apple Park. The great thing was San Diego Sea World, i just wish it was included in the tour price.


There were a lot of amazing places and activities in that tour, like San Francisco, Lombard Street, City Hall, St. Mary\'s Cathedral, Chinatown, Fisherman\'s Wharf, Pier 39, The University of California, Skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island. Then there was the amazing Yosemite national park, Yosemite waterfall, El Capitan, Tunnel View Point. on day 4 we did some shopping in Desert Hills Premium Outlets, and on day 5 we visited the amazing Hollywood Universal Studios. This was an amazing experience.


I would really recommend Golden Bus Tours to anyone and especially that tour, it was really great 6 day package, their service is great, their tour guide was a real nice and professional guy and he really deserved the daily tip, we also loved the hotels very much. we saw some amazing places like San Francisco,St. Mary\'s Cathedral, Chinatown, Fisherman\'s Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Yosemite national park. Also we visited Disneyland Theme Park and my kids were so happy,


I liked the tour itself as it was very organized and punctual, i just had a couple of issues, first there was no bathroom on the bus, so we had to wait for breaks, and there was no wifi on the bus also, and also admissions were not included, and there was Mandatory fee for Yosemite National Park,San Francisco City Tour. I really did not like the concept that admissions are mandatory. Other than that it was really nice tour and great places to visit especially Yosemite national park and San Diego Sea World
