The tour itself was really great, i just had a couple of issues, first the bathroom on the bus was for emergencies only,so we had to wait for breaks, also i really wish if admissions were included in the tour price. But other than that, we really had a great time, we loved all places we saw and the tour was very well organized. Hotels were really good and the tour guide was real nice guy. We really loved Universal Studios, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon South Rim, San Diego Tour, Yosemite National Park.
I planned this trip for my kids who were crazy to visit Disneyland Park and Universal Studios particularly. The fun of Disney Park and its fantasy was not only enjoyed by my kids but also by me. What a memorable experience that was. Kids enjoyed the rides of Universal Studios a lot and I captured their moment in my camera. I must say that my tour guide supported and guided a lot in all the places that's why we enjoyed a lot. Bus services were really on time and well managed. Thanks
The best tour i had in many years. Great service and hospitality, tour guide is an amazing person, really helpful and friendly. The Complimentary Airport pick up and drop off service was really helpful to us. We really enjoyed Los Angeles, Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre, the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Yosemite National Park, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Disneyland Park, and Universal Studios. I just wish if Mandatory Fee was a bit cheaper, but the tour was really worth it.
I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.

The tour guide was a real nice guy and the accommodation was also amazing, really clean and comfortable hotels. We were really happy about the great service and hospitality of Golden Bus Tours.
Lovely places an incredible variety of food was the beauty of this trip for me. I experienced this trip with my best friend and had great fun. It was not only one place where we enjoyed the most but almost all places were incredibly beautiful. Grand Canyon was a lovely place, we visited west rim and it was our best decision. We spent more time there and enjoy the helicopter ride. It was a lifetime experience. We enjoyed the fantasy world of Disney Park, sea world, the Chinese Theatre and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Shopping and food was enjoyed a lot as well. I found our bus service was a bit late sometimes; but tour guidance was good.
I took this tour along my wife and child. The visit is great and the guide is in all respects friendly. I found that it is an incentive for your cash. Superb system. Value your game plans, everything was all together. I I strongly recommend this visit, it will give you a thorough image of a huge piece of West Coast. Time in Yellowstone and Grand Teton is sufficiently very to get to know this delightful spot, in spite of the fact that you will need to return to this spot in future.
Awesome cost for every one of the spots we visited. It's a quick paced visit however certainly justified regardless of the cost for a learner who needed to get a look at every goal. Guide is very knowledgeable and he took us to all spots where we can get the best pictures. The Bus driver who was capable drive such long distance. I have 2 kids with me that are under 10 and 2 seniors and we all delighted in the visit tremendously. Highly recommended and and look forward for another visit soon.
Had an incredible Tour. A lot to see and every day got better. The highlight for us was The Universal Studio, Yellowstone Park and Disneyland Tour. Tour Guide, was pleasant, agreeable, clever, proficient, extremely sorted out and effective. Our bus driver,was additionally hilarious and drove all around cautiously and safely.The Guide took care of the entire mentor. I highly recommend this trip to everybody, youthful and old.
