I must say thanks to GoldenBus Tours for arranging such an amazing tour for us. I had the best 8 days of my life touring almost an amazing bunch of places starting from Los Angeles. From the beginning GoldenBus Tours helped us with each and every detail possible. The company’s representative guided us well during the planning and put our reservations and requirements ahead of anything. I’d definitely recommend the company to everybody.

We, I and my boyfriend had a great time visiting all these places for a week. It was fascinating, especially the Yosemite park.  The vineyards, the beaches, Los Angeles, Las vegas and the Tanger outlet, I fell in love with everything I went on this tour. We felt out of the world and this was our first touring together outside. The hotel accommodations were perfect and the room was done neatly and compact, smelling good every night we came back tired to the room. The food, especially the lunch was tasty at most places and it was an organized tour.

8 days tour was a long tour and we had enough and more time to visit and hang around each place. We enjoyed thoroughly. It was good and also the accommodation surpassed our expectations. The guide and the driver gave their best and so a worthy tour, I recommend.

I am very fond of natural beauty, flowers and adventures jungle tours. I booked for the Golden bus tours to give myself a treat on my birthday. I wished to do that I love the most and this was a 8 day tour to the Los Angeles, Botanical gardens, Las Vegas and covered many places such as Silicon Valley and Grand Canyon. The bus guide helped each tourist with knowledge and assistance, if required. He was courteous and the bus driver well mannered. A nice tour and I recommend.

We went as a family with me and my husband with his two kids. I am new into this family trying to make my entry with his two kids. This tour was like a bridge to settle with for a week and to try to suit each other. A nice tour indeed, yet I was feeling a bit in and out and that was disappointing. The room was small; I would have loved a bigger room with some private space. Always it did look crowded. But for it the tour was really good covering the most of the important places.

I mostly don’t visit places with more natural views as I grew up in an American village. But when my husband insisted me to go for this tour, I then changed my perspective and choices.
