It was lovely being part of this amazing journey which we started from New York. I just can’t thank enough because throughout the journey we have been treated quite well, and toured some remarkable places like the Niagara Falls itself. Plus, the New York City, DC, Philadelphia, and Boston City tours helped us learn and see a lot about those major cities of the United States. At the end of our days, we had finest hotels to stay. Thanks for making this journey so wonderful. Good days.

We took this tour with our family of 5. Our goal was to enjoy a true vacation and I felt we needed a good tour company to help us plan our holidays. GoldenBus Tours made sure it was true to each of the promise made to us on booking. Our hotel was good, not over the top neither less than what we expected. I’d say GoldenBus Tours is a very much affordable company organizing tours with great care and details all the while keeping in mind the ease and feasibility of their customers.

Very close to one of my best tour experiences. The food, accommodation and experience was flawless. The guide was informative. The only negative is that he did not pay attention to the entire group causing a few boring moments here and there.

Finally, we experienced the eight days of this journey. Regarding my experience with the tour group, I’m glad to admit that the services provided by the management were appreciable. We didn’t have to worry about a single thing, all was managed quite well. Just Loved the Niagara Falls, and Washington DC, and the Thousand Island boat journey. My kids had a great time as well, but the hotels in New York could have been a lot better since the city attracts millions of tourists, they have the finest hotels there. Anyways, the destinations were great!
