San Francisco and Santa Barbara are amazing place! I had never seen these city before and I’m glad I hadn’t because the charm would’ve been minimized had I visited this amazing city on my own. GoldenBusTours planned such a comprehensive tour for everybody that it was hard to not enjoy. I will definitely give this tour company 5 stars and give recommendations to everyone I know. Try GoldenBusTours if you are looking forward to an affordable, well planned trip.

Other than that the services provided in their trips are exactly like they describe it in the trip info. Took amazing photographs and made even better memories; I had a stunning time on this trip. I would recommend it to a friend of mine who is looking for a trip in summers.
