Husband and I wanted a memorable vacation for our 1st anniversary and I’m glad I took the tour. We started off 9 days ahead of our anniversary so that we could celebrate our anniversary on the last day of our tour. The best thing was that on this 9 day tour that we took GoldenBus Tours allowed us to choose our own destination where we wanted to spend the ninth day. the tour covered everything well. Service was well organized and on time. I’d recommend the company to everybody looking for well organized tours.

44 11

This tour is the best and easiest way to see some of the most breathtaking and exotic places within 9 days. Everything seemed to blend in perfectly well during the whole trip. I can’t even point out one particular thing that stood out above the rest. Perfect company, supportive guides, a luxurious bus, good food, affordable accommodation and spectacular sceneries made me a very content and loyal GoldenBusTours customer.

43 13

I heard a lot about Civic Center and San Diego SeaWorld. When I headed to these places, I explored ten times more what I heard about them. One should go for this tour once in a life.

35 9

The 9 day tour was a great pleasure. We liked visiting all the places. I wanted to take photos in each place and I was allowed to do so. This was a great advantage that they allowed us do as we wish and were not hurried into for everything.

33 13

I along with my family went on this tour as part of our vacations trip and we are grateful to Golden Bus Tours for providing us with the best possible service including Hotels, Accommodations and Guide. We had a wonderful time exploring San Francisco, Palm Spring Outlets and Los Angeles. Children loved the tour to Ethel M Chocolate Factory, Botanical Cactus Gardens, Disneyland, Solvang, Silicon Valley and San Diego, Cable Car, Roaring Camp Redwood Forest Train and Yosemite National Park

32 12

We are a batch of students and this is our first year. We planned this tour so that we visit some of the places here and we have no idea to go to places all alone or by ourselves. The accommodation was hardly average.
