I had been with my family to this New York to Niagara Falls Philadelphia Boston new haven tour with Golden bus. It is unbelievable that we visited so many places in such a short time. In fact, in each place we had enough time to spend and the entire tour was a magical experience. Our drive was smooth and the others traveling with us were also really great and now we all stay in touch.

I recently enjoyed this 9 day tour package in which we visited many great cities rich with scenic sports and historical sites, in these nine days we explored Boston, Niagara Falls, Corning, Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York and toured prestigious institutions like Yale University, MIT and Harvard University. We also enjoyed nature and its wonders at Rhode Island.

I and my brother got this to this tour. He loves visiting places and so I am a part of his interested tour. It is not that I dislike touring, but this was an interesting tour taking to so many places. The bus was comfortable and my brother gave me the window seat right from day one. It was really good and the dinner at most places were exceptionally good. The hotel accommodation on the 6th day was unsatisfactory, the room was not cleaned to perfection, the sheets were soiled and we had to call the reception and request them to get it changed and they did so with hesitation.

I went on this tour hoping everything to offer an above par experience. Golden bus provided it to a great extent and only the hotel accommodation was satisfactory. The guide gave us the best of the details that each place gave a feel of being known.

We are three sisters, who took to this tour after a long time; we cut our busy schedules and made up for this tour. It was fascinating and as it would have it we loved the outlets for shopping. The high brands and the discount pricing was nothing short of a day dream that we got to realize. The weight of the shopping bags became much than the luggage we actually carried for the tour. But we got the best of the collection and were more than happy. We could walk with pride to our work places in best of the collection. The tour was the best.

I am a student. Some 10 friends of mine and me booked this tour during our holidays. It was one of the best period ever. The guide could have been a bit more informative.
