My colleagues in my office asked me to take my kids on this bus tour. Yes, it is worthy spending and the prices are affordable. The 7 day was mind blowing and we saw so many places and like always my kids were so happy at Niagara Falls that they were not ready to get back into the bus.

Doing all day work is sure to lead to boredom and so I made all plans to get out of the regular schedule. I took on to this 7 day tour and must say, the right way to relax is this tour. I thought of sleeping in the bus, but the scenic places kept me awake.

My sister had come to visit us and so to give her a tour we got the bookings conveniently with Golden bus tours and the e-tickets were done instantly. This was a clean tour, they offered good stay in clean hotels and the bus ride was comfortable and smooth, no jerks. A perfect tour to visit the great Washingon dc and my sister children were happy to wear the coats and enjoyed the Niagara Falls. We recommend this tour to families who love going in a secured and comfortable way. New York many places, Boston, Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa and so many more.

Yes, I recommend 5 stars. This is a fascinating tour that no one should miss, whether you are a first time visitor or one time visitor. There is so much to see that you will be shocked to see such beautiful places, cobblestone streets, artifacts, delectable food, the style, the richness, the magic, the charm and I am unable to come right now with more words. The tour operator had taken great care about the tour design and the hotel accommodation that there was nothing to complain. We can sing praises and express happiness for having been on this tour.

I liked the tour. The tour was really planned for the tourists, keeping in mind that they cover the best of the portion and all the valuable areas. All the places we visited were spending. I did not like the accommodation on the 4th day. Rest was perfect. That room on the 4th day had no window to view outside and it looked like left alone. Maybe it will be good for old people and not for me. I requested the reception for a change of room, but they denied and I did not like staying that night. But the next day room and the places were excellent that I forgot the hotel stay.
