This was the first time I am out all alone. My husband was very busy to join me and so I have planned a trip to take a break from my schedule. As I was alone, I got this Golden bus tours for 7 days and I was not disappointed. The places of visit were worthy and I visited almost all the important places in this tour, than I had imagined. In fact, I had visited so many places in this 7 day tour that many had not visited even after staying in the U.S. for 3 to 4 years. For me this was the right and best experience.
This trip was fabulous. The tour guide was loving, calm, and caring. The attractions were impressive. We recommend this trip for everyone. We had no problem on our tour, the sights we saw, especially Niagara Falls were mind blowing. I went on this tour as part of our honeymoon rendezvous. I and my wife had the most romantic time ever. Golden Bus Tours offered amazingly affordable rates and tour was well guided. We had a lovely time soaking in the extraordinary beauty and power of the falls and riding in the sensations of thousands island. Highly recommended tour for everyone.
Who goes to Las Vegas and does not have a time of his/her life, except for the people who lose money by gambling in the casinos. I feel for you! My wife accompanied me in this tour, we both had a really good time, we visited Grand Canyon, it was nice to have witness a remarkable view like that. Everything was on point. Good work!
We had a week’s time to start studying for our annual exams and as a fun we booked this tour and visited the places. The accommodation was good and so was the entire tour. The places we saw were exceptionally good, while our guide and driver the best.
7 day tour was fascinating to get out from the regular chores of office and schedule. All the places from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon, Hoover dam and the San Francisco tour were amazing. The operators took good responsibility and this was apparent in each aspect.
