You wouldn’t expect any bus tour company to offer you such great deals and amazing service but GoldenBusTours is the name of exception. I have tried a lot of bus tours so I can make a claim with an authority. I was certainly impressed at the service we received. Also the company had buses with good interiors and the rides were very comfortable. I was happy with the accommodations we received as well because we were traveling with our son and needed a bus which could accommodate his car seat as well. I would give a thumbs up to GoldenBusTours.
Awesome tour man! Awesome company! Buses were great. I’m glad the AC worked all the time. Thumbs up to GoldenBusTours for such a great package deal!
Bus very clean and the driving were safe. No rush to see places, enough time was given even to take photos in different angles at the Niagara Falls. I liked Ottawa, Montreal and the beautiful scenery that was mesmerizing. The 7 day tour was worth the money spent.
It was a wonderful trip but I didn’t understand the purpose of visiting the Niagara Falls from the Canadian side, if we wanted to tour the Niagara Falls, we could have done from our American side. But that was alright since there was much to do and explore on the entire tour. I have never to Canada before, and this tour was also the reason for me to take the journey to Canda. Montreal, Quebec, and all regions were the best. We couldn’t have enjoyed much in a case we didn’t move to Canada. I like the bus hosting person, he was friendly and helping out every passenger on the bus. I just loved this amazing journey. Great hotel and buses, and the people too! Cheers!
I had checked their websites and the tour I was looking for was not available or had less information. But my friends suggested that this tour was good and they were not wrong. Though there were 7 days, we had lots and vast places to cover, I recommend.
There isn’t any alternative place of the Boston City. There are historical locations, world’s top class institutions and beautiful public spots as well. I really love this place a lot.
I went through the website and chose for this bus tour. The reviews were good and the prices were affordable to visit so many places in a week’s time with accommodation as the best. they maintained the schedule and did not rush at any place. I recommend.
Despite all the great destinations, we receivedvery good services from buses to hotels, and everything, and I think this is really admirable. I don’t think someone could ever dislike this tour or even experience it and not enjoy it. The bus drove to so many great places like the Niagara Falls, the Boston, Montreal, Quebec City, and New York City were just remarkable. Great bus facility, thanks a lot.
