That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included, but to be honest they gave us Complimentary Breakfast, and it was really worth it. 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, it was a great job from our amazing tour guide who was very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was really comfortable, really clean and cozy hotels and we saw some amazing places. It was really a great tour and great experience. I really hope i can do it again some time.
The price of $896.40 is really attractive and affordable which includes your accommodation for 6 nights ( in Deluxe hotels ) with complimentary breakfast and travel. The buses were comfortable and have rest rooms and toilet for this long distance tour.
The trip has a long way to cover and it is a bus tour. The best part of this trip is that you can have both east coast and Niagara Falls, day and night. Other attractions are White House, John F. Kennedy Library, Quincy Market and more.
I took this 7 days tour 3 months ago but they did not even get to see the front of the white house. Why put that in the list if you are going to dupe people that way. I thought we will go at least closer to the capitol hall and the other places.
The tour was finished by 6 pm. The tour guide just took us to the back of the white house and we were there literally for a minute. He did not even wait for all the passengers to get off the bus before he started walking. By the time he asked some of us to go back, some passengers were still walking to the white house. He disregarded the fact that some people like elders and kids cannot match his pace.
I and Nick would say that we were not disappointed at all by exploring attractive sites and observing the creative architecture around. When we passed through Harvard University, we remembered our good old days of college and it was fun.
We were planning for long time to have a break from our busy schedule and finally, we made it by having a tour from Boston to MIT, Harvard University, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City and Niagara Falls and back. It was an amazing holiday with GoldenBusTours.

In my opinion this was one of the best travel agencies i have dealt with, The tour was really very well organized, there was no delay, and we moved exactly on time. Our bus was really comfortable, and though there was no bathroom we stopped every while for break, also our driver was very skilled, he really made us feel safe on the bus, which was extremely important to us since we had a small children with us

I would really like to use your services again, but next time i would visit the West coast.
The best thing i loved about that tour was Niagara Jet boat ride, it was really magical, This was our first time to take that Jet boat ride. nothing was more fun than that, the hotel was really clean and it was just few minutes away from Niagara Falls.
