To take a tour by yourself might took our time therefore we consulted Golden Bus Tours for the tour and they offered us the deal of 8-days bus tour to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburg, Detroit and a number of other places. We enjoyed a lot. Hotels did offer a quality service. Best tour ever!

An eight days well-planned trip that took us to Chicago, Niagara Falls and many other important tourist destinations! It was a perfect trip; except for the hotels which did not provide comfortable services.

Highly recommended. Even though the visiting pace might be way too fast in which I did not have enough time to visit some of my personal favorite locations, The tour guide is exceptionally experienced, awesome transportation comfort. Although this tour might fall a little bit short in terms of accommodation and weather. Other-wised, it was one hell of an interesting experience.

39 7

I’ve never seen such outstanding transport services. I really enjoyed sightseeing more than visiting the itineraries personally. Keep up the good services. Would like to visit these places again.

34 6

Good to travel in Golden bus tours, but it would be better if they could check the bus seats. Some were not perfect and hard. Traveling for 8 days meant a lot and so convenience matters. But for it they tour was superb, they covered all the places mentioned.

29 5

Summer vacations pose the greatest threat. This tour saved me on one occasion. I took my kids on this tour and they ended up enjoying it. The driver gave us a few jittery moments, but no untoward occurrences.

21 6

Best tour of my life. They let us fully explore the stunning beauty of Chicago. I loved it. Although, we were taken to so many places and we actually enjoyed. Hotels were excellent. Since I am a huge fan of Rock and Roll Music therefore I really loved visit Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. For me this was the pick of the tour. Having said that it does not mean rest of the places were no good. Best eight days of my life!

17 5

Tour of eight days straight was good, it wasn’t bad. My family and I took this bus tour and they drove us to numerous famous places like Niagara Falls, Independence Halls, and White House. It was exhausting but we had fun! I think if you are looking for affordable option with lots of places to visit then this tour is best buy. However, the issue here is there are no rest days. So, at the end of the day you will be exhausted. I don’t think one can enjoy something if he is exhausted.
