I’m a tourist and came to America last week. I was looking to have a detailed tour of major cities of America when someone recommended me GoldenBusTours. I’m really glad for choosing Golden Bus for my tour to Boston, New York, Washington and the best place of all, Niagara Falls. It was a wonderful experience for me. It was one of the best tour I have had. Thanks to Golden Bus Tours for arranging it.
This six days trip was fun! The hotels were mediocre whereas the booking with Golden bus tours went on smooth. During the trip I met this girl and soon we became great friends. The tour guide came to pick us up from the airport and he was guiding us well throughout the trip. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a unique story for every place we visited.
My daughters were on this trip for 6 days and they enjoyed a lot. We just send them as we were busy. The tour was safe and comfortable. My girls had a great time as we were not behind them behind to control or restrict and so they were all in smiles.
We booked this 6-day tour to New York, Boston and other attractions. These were the best six days of my life. I went with my wife and really enjoyed the tour. During the journey we visited different places some reflecting natural beauty like Niagara falls and some depicting history and education like the Corning Glass. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to explore beautiful places in a decent package.
Golden Bus Tours provided us with a lot of information before we went on this 6 day tour. It was a very simple excursion filled with loads of fun and information. How the tour guide dealt with the entire trip in a manner that we never felt like we were being hurried and how despite everything he secured our visit to all the planned locations in the given time was past me. Highly Recommended!
An amazing trip with my family! It was a recommended trip and we had lots of fun. The hotels were great and all six days went on as planned.
The bus tour agent was really good, in fact, exceptionally good. I was late and yet without making any fuss he waited for me to be picked up. I recommend this tour operator. The 6 day tour and the price of the tour were really affordable.
I am a French guy from Paris and love to explore this world as much as I can afford. This time, I chose this tour package. I am pleased to have this wonderful tour. Simply Amazing!
