This was a seven day adventure trip that blew my mind. I planned this trip long ago since my children had their long vacations coming up and seven days were committed to this trip. The two national parks that we visited were good. Los Angeles was at its best and also the booking was well organised with golden bus tours and everything was taken care of. Our guide was friendly. My children loved him and his sense of humour. Overall, it was great.
This was a 7-day guided adventure trip that took me to amazing places. Due to the excellent tour service in an economical package by Golden Bus Tour they satisfied everybody and provided a chance to explore Bingham Copper Mine, Salt Lake City, Grand Tenton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Las Vegas and many other amazing spaces. I totally enjoyed seven days. The booking with Golden Bus Tours was perfectly taken forward and everything was well planned. I have recommended this trip to many friends.
We were on our engagement tour so that we spend quality time in knowing each other and also visiting places that gave us some space. We discussed about places and loved all the time we had a good company. Especially, 7 days tour indeed was a long tour and we could decide we made a good pair for lifelong commitment.
I wish I could stay for more days to enjoy this tour. The seven days are though not less but I wanted to spend more days at Los Angeles and Denver. Those are best days of my life.
We are engaged for over a year and due to get married soon. We were on this tour and this was a nice tour. The bus was comfortable and we were not disturbed that all the 7 days we had all for ourselves. The accommodation on the first day was given after a long wait, could have been quick.
My family and I decided to go for this trip to take a break from our daily chores. The different places we went to were good but our guide was quite unhelpful. We had many problems with the services as well. However, the booking with Golden Bus Tours was well planned. I think people should try out other platforms as well.
