This was my first time with Golden Bus Tours. I took this tour which seems like a good deal in terms of money. It was a wonderful in depth 7-day tour of some of the major cities. I had a great time travelling with Golden Bus. The offer the best service and accommodation.
This was not a properly planned visit for our family. We suddenly started for and had a tough time in finding accommodation as it was vacation time. Fortunately, we received details about the Golden Bus tour and just went with them. They have made excellent tours to cover Boston, Washington dc, Niagara Falls. Wow, I just could not move from Niagara Falls and our tour operators never hurried us. Our tour guide had good knowledge about all the places and kept us informed.
I had booked tickets for my parents in law to go in this tour package. They were worried as they did not know English, but they were taken good care. They went on this 7 day tour with lot of hesitation, but while they were back they sung praises.
I don’t know whether you trust me or not but this tour changed my entire life. I found my real love and wife-to-be in Montreal. If you’re single, try your luck in this way then.
We are new to this place and have come here to study. As the college has not begun, we new friends are on this tour. Nice places to see, but 7 day tour were not in our plan, though we proceeded. It was affordable and they took to many places, worth and more.
My husband told me that his friends went for this tour and enjoyed a lot. So, we have also planned it to beat the heat at our place. It was just amazing tour.
I would definitely pay visit to all of these places again with my future wife. This time, I planned the tour with the friends. It is a perfect trip for honeymooners.
This was a perfect tour to get some change in a life; we visited a big list of cities and places in just 7 days. We travelled to Canada as well, and the busy streets of Toronto, the hospitality of Ottawa it was exactly how I imagined it to be. Tour guide was quite informative; he guided us through each part.
It was a well planned and well managed trip. I loved every bit of the trip. The hotels were quite comfortable and my wife loved the package as well. We could enjoy the scenic beauty of Niagara Falls and explored Washington DC, New York City, Corning Museum, Yale University and Boston on this 5-day exciting tour I have recommended this to a lot of people
I was just going through websites and saw this bus tour packages were attractive. I got a ticket booked for me and am glad to take the decision. The bus travel was comfortable and the accommodation arrangements were also decent. Every place that we saw was beautiful and I loved each moment.
