I had planned for this tour a couple of weeks in advance. The tour was good. I was not happy with food provided during the stay. It did make the tour a little less enjoyable.
I decided to take a tour with Golden bus tours and it was a long 7 days tour. I can tell from my experience that this company is best when it comes to providing best tourist services. It was a pleasant trip. We enjoyed the view of places like Corning Museum of Glass and Niagara Falls, Washington D.C, New York City, and Boston. Definitely Recommended!
This one-week trip made me fully fresh and relaxed. I am now happy to back to work. I loved the entire 7-dat holiday tour. It is just spectacular. You must pay visit there at least once.
I heard a lot about the Golden bus tour packages and as I also wished to see places, just had this tried. Definitely a good experience and this 7 day tour covering the most important places such as New York, Niagara Falls, Washington DC, Boston and Philadelphia, I felt like life is complete.
Guests were all set at Washington DC in the morning, we began our tour while getting around our political town visiting the White House & US Capitol building. However, I’m thankful to the team for letting us take aguided tour of the Princeton University; because I wanted to let my kids explore that leading educational institute; it’s also an inspiration. Mentioning the great hotels, we had throughout the course of the bus journey. We would definitely try to experience another great bus tour on our next vacations. Cheers!
we were hoping that we could spend more time at the Rockefeller Center in New York, after a short break, we headed to other popular destinations in New York like the Wall Street, Times Square. I’m happy to admit that the tour was even more enjoyable at the Washington DC because we had those monumental landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial, the fun began as we all experience the DC cruise. I have never had such a memorable tour before but this one. Thanks a lot for the appreciable services.
well who wouldn’t want to take a while off from the daily routine and visit the Niagara Falls and Harvard University in the falls. Being an alumna of Harvard, I just found this bus tour suitable and worth taking, not only because we had Harvard University Tour on the course of the tour, but also because it quite many decent landmarks including the Niagara Falls, Boston Harbor, and many great places at the New York., mentioning Amish Farm tour, visiting the Amish was like stepping back in century where people have not idea about the electricity and phones and other modern day technologies.
