I recommend GoldenBus Tours to everybody without any reservations. While planning, the company’s customer representative listens to you attentively and carefully helps you plan out your travel itinerary keeping in mind your needs and requirements. They generate an amazing mix of activities and sightseeing opportunities for their travelers and the price is just great. I’d say if you want a tour that’s well planned and well executed, this is the company to ask for.

A long tour indeed and we covered the best places. It is highly impossible for us to have done this even if we had taken our own vehicle. The affordable prices, the accommodation and the transportation luxury are beyond imagination. They surpassed our expectations and met all that was required. I recommend.

Throughout my journey of this tour, I felt that love is in the air everywhere. Wherever I went, the every new destination grabbed more of my attention. I would never forget these 9 days.

9 days was a long tour and we had all the time to see all the places as per the schedule taking enough time. But, now I feel, they could have added one or two more places in this list as we had ample time to visit.
