I am a travel freak and have visited plenty of countries to the date. But I must say that I’ve never seen such diverse and extraordinarily stunning places available in this tour package. It’s a great tour combo.
My parents got 3 tickets for me and my two step brothers. This relation of my parents was new and I did not like the other 2, but after going on this tour, we have come close. This 8 day tour really made great changes and we are a family.
I came with my sons for this trip and we were picked conveniently and dropped at the hotel. The next day we started with golden bus tours as this was our first visit and we knew nothing. Though I was scared, this tour was worthy and all my fears vanished the moment we started visiting the fascinating places including Thousand Islands, Corning Museum and the Niagara Falls. The tour does not stop with this, there were many more places important and worth visiting. We also had a nice stay in hotels and the transportation in this bus is worth praising. Our guide was also good and cheerful.
It was a long in-depth tour exactly what I was looking for to get a break for stressful work routine. It proved to be the best decision. Golden Bus certainly offers the best service at an affordable price. It was an not so comfortable ride back to Washington due to the weather but all settled down once we entered the premises of Washington.
