This tour was a great way to explore some of the most attractive sites in Miami and Washington. I visited with my wife and we loved the beauty of Virginia Beach, Everglades National Park, Fort Lauderdale, Daytona Beach, Richmond and many other places. There were slight issues while booking with golden bus tours but everything else was fine.

I personally liked the tour itinerary very much, the locations were quite versatile. It was a package of everything. The hotels were good enough and so were the shuttle services and tour guide. Overall a very satisfying experience and value for money. I will definitely recommend this tour to my family and colleagues.

A great package for family outings! Washington DC and Virginia Beach was my favourite part of the trip. I went with my family and it was amazing. The hotels were good and all their services were satisfactory. It’s a decent package for the amount we gave.

The tour was good though but still I felt they could accommodate few more locations to visit. We spent like hell lot of time in each locations which if would have been sped up could let one cover more places in a day. The tour guide was well informed and took active interest in educating us. To sum up it is a “try it out” choice but not a “must try it out”.
