I went on this tour with my family. They absolutely enjoyed it. All the 7 days are properly planned such that you do not feel being hurried from one place to another. One of my best tours till date.
GoldenBusTours gives you packages that even students can afford. We’re happy we considered GoldenBusTours for our trip and got such a great deal!
I had this opportunity to join my friend’s family on this tour. They had booked earlier and one of the members could not join and I was invited. Great going, lucky me, no charges and enjoying a lovely tour during this 7 day tour and saw amazing places.
GoldenBusTours is a name that you can trust when you want the best service while taking a bus tour. I would say there isn’t a better option available as compared to GoldenBusTours when you want a bus tour that offers great accommodation and a luxury bus ride as well. Our driver and guide were friendly too and accommodated us to the best of their abilities. They ensured we had a great time on our trip.
Many of my friends call me a picky person. However, I never showed such attitude and appreciated the entire tour generously in front of everyone. The tour deserves such praises.
NYC night tour, Statue of Liberty cruise, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls Washington DC and Boston, we missed absolutely nothing on such a comprehensive tour that we took with GoldenBusTours. I am certainly impressed with this company because they give you everything in such affordable price. Who would have thought about touring so many cities in such a low price and getting accommodation and traveling in a luxury bus all in it?
Without any doubt, it was an incredible experience that I and my son had in this tour. We enjoyed so much of this tour that the Boston and New York City had to offer. Our guide had good sound knowledge of the history and culture that all through the tour she kept on updating us with information. In fact, my little son pelted her with many questions and she answered very patiently. she was welcoming and gracious, providing detail of the restaurants and also its owners. No mistake, it was a delightful and enjoyable tour that none should miss of these cities.
We had a fantastic tour and our guide was beyond to tell us the story of Boston, New York famous places and the sparks of each important place. He was knowledgeable, encouraged questions, and did not miss anyone’s attention. It was a bit confusing as all the history was poured in this week’s time and as it is I am poor with history details. The tour was organized and there were small issues here and there that are ok. Otherwise the tour was good, food ok, accommodation fair, and bus comfortable. I will plan and consider another tour with this operator.
