Hi. We are from Cambodia, and we recently happen to experience this bus journey in northern areas. I would like to add few things regarding my experience, it was a great bus tour, but there should be more places where children can enjoy, Chocolate Factory was great sites, but my kids seemed to not enjoy the tour because of those bold attractions. Well, the hotels and Las Vegas were absolutely fun
We are a newlywed couple, but are with our parents on this tour and it is fun. I would love to come with my husband alone on this tour. It would be really great to enjoy hopefully. I will plan for the next soon. This tour of 7 days was good, no complaints, I recommend
I booked this tour on my friend’s insistence. He said this was nice to take my parents on this tour and he had done the same. So I also followed the same and I now recommend you follow me. It is good to travel with them; they take good care of their passengers.
This tour is quite well-designed and I highly recommend it. The only caveat that I faced was the two of the tour guides weren't very prepared for their jobs, so they ended up giving me completely wrong information while were out there. Also, one of them gave me the wrong timing to go back to the bus and then started saying that I was late, and he was very rude. Besides that, the tour was satisfactory and the price is totally worth it!
This was a perfect trip for my class. 15 of us took up this package and thanks to golden bus tours we loved every bit of it. I will surely recommend this to other friends too.
Great tour! Tour guide was awesome. I went on this tour with my wife, we enjoyed the tour. The hotel accommodations were good. No Complaint at all. GoldenBusTours provided way more than I was expecting. Good work GoldenBusTours!
My family and I had never visited the San Francisco, although we have to California many times, never get to visit there. However, on this bus, we not only get to visit the San Francisco but also visited our favorite sites such as the Grand Canyons, Chocolate Factory, Yosemite National Park. On the other hand, our hotels were the best. We slept really good after the exhaustion of the day’s journeys. Special thanks to the great bus guiding person, who guided us and provided us everything we wanted, great person, and a great tour!
