it was fun at the beginning of our trip when we were roaming around the Santa Barbara and San Francisco. To pay a visit to Grand Canyon requires a massive effort and energy as the place is huge and definitely worth a visit. It was a great 9-day trip for me and my husband. Thanks for the services.

 things got a lot better when they took us to the Yosemite National Park, it was just like we have sent to the heaven, it was so amazing that words wouldn’t be ever enough. The hotelswere just as decent as we I wanted them and the tour guide, Kathy, was remarkable human being for her kind efforts in order to deliver a luxurious service.

I confidently recommend this tour; we had a splendid time on this tour of 5 days, saw the wonders of San Francisco and lot more. Our guide was very friendly and really attentive at all the time. This was a tour that can be said that it was awesome as we covered a lot of places in such a short period of time. The hotels that we stayed were also super clean and awesome. The bus tour is interesting and stops at good restaurants. The driver also was nice and friendly. Overall the tour is worth recommending, and we enjoyed.

I loved this tour as everything was neatly organized. The bus tours are really fascinating. This is the first time I have taken a bus tour, though I heard from many about it being comfortable, I am trying it today. This was a nice tour and so I wanted to give my reviews so that it helps others. The tour operator is good and the only thing that I would appreciate is if the conductor spoke less. It appeared as though he was more anxious. The places we stayed and ate were awesome. Rest everything was fine and a perfect tour!

I am really thankful to one friend of mine who recommended Golden Bus Tours to me. It is really an amazing company, their services are wonderful and their customer service team are very helpful and patient. Also the organization of the tour was really great. we moved exactly on time according to the schedule that was given to us by the tour guide, who was a really nice and helpful guy. Great job Golden Bus Tours.

One of the things i really liked about that tour was the Complimentary Airport pick up and drop off service. Next best thing was the accommodation, though our hotels were not 5 stars, but they were very clean and comfortable hotels. The organization of the our was amazing, there was no delay at all and our tour guide was very professional guy. we enjoyed a lot Yosemite National Park along,17-Mile Drive,UC Berkeley, Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Palace of Fine Arts, Stanford University, Lombard Street, Monterey Aquarium and of course the amazing Grand Canyon.

The only thing that i did not like about that tour is that admissions were not included, that would have been really perfect. Other than that, the tour was amazing in every thing, it was really well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay and even during the tour we were right on schedule, it was a great effort from the tour guide who was a great guy by the way. The accommodation was really comfortable, really clean and cozy hotels and we saw some amazing places like Silicon Valley, 17-Mile Drive, UC Berkeley, Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Palace of Fine Arts, Stanford University, Lombard Street, Monterey Aquarium, Yosemite National Park, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon.
