    On 9th June, When I de-boarded the bus while taking the luggage out of the bus, someone mistakenly took my luggage, when we reached home we realized it was a mistake. It was Bhaskar I believe on the chat who assisted us with receiving the luggage back. He already knew the lost luggage details so well that astonished us. He persuaded us with the contact info of the other person whose luggage was with us and we were able to exchange them. Much Thanks

    Informative and detailed! The tour was so popular that the first time slot sold out.

    I’ve been coming to the area for over 20 years and assumed I knew “everything”, apparently I knew very little.

    Charlie was our tour guide and was both funny and highly informative. He had in-depth history as well as up to date events on the area. I learned a great deal and highly recommend.

    Next time around I will drag the family and try some of the other tours they offer.

    My Ovrride bus trip to Bellayre mountain for a weekend ski trip was terrific. The tour guides were helpful and fun, and went above and beyond to ensure our trip went smoothly and helped us with several questions we had along the way. I will use this bus tour service again in the future, and recommend it to anyone who would look for a fun ski trip with friends or family.

    I never leave reviews, but this Empire Limousine is deserving on one. So glad I came across this service ! The agent I spoke to over the phone when I called them was very helpful. She even helped me setup the whole event. I had multiple people working along the process but everything was made super easy for my office staff. My staff got the text messages when they arrive at EWR Newark Liberty Airport and I also got the text and email regarding each reservation. They were a little pricy but its worth every penny. I was relaxed and they took care of everything.

    It was a round trip from NYC to Bethesda, MD. Going south was indeed perfect: an excellent driver, precise on-time service, an extremely clean bus, w/ lots of leg room. The same can be said about the return except for one incident: the driver decided during the ride to fully open her window. When I requested that she close the window, she replied that someone was eating chips and that as soon as the chips were done, she would close the window. I was sitting diagonally across from her in the front row...it was 40 degrees outside, and no place to move, the bus was full. Seemed pretty inappropriate -- at least close the window a little bit, make an effort to make the customer happy. It was another 10 minutes before the window was closed. Not cool. Actually, it was cold (and I was wearing two shirts and a microfleece vest). Management should have a chat with her.

    Getting the tickets and the coach there and back was fine, done this loads of times and well worth the trip. This time the only down point was the rudeness of the driver there, who spoke to me when I asked a simply question about my ticket, like I was the stupidest person alive. I get the impression hes quite used to speaking to maybe non-english speaking passengers anyway he wants, but when he spoke to me that way (from the UK) hes $10 dollar tip went straight back in my pocket!!

    It claims entertainment but the TV screens never came on and if your phone is dead then you have no entertainment. It felt very bumpy and loud ride and we were burning up. Could not get any air to come out and cool us off.

    I shouldn't complain. For $16, the Newark Airport Express got me to Grand Central in 35 minutes (at 8:30 in the evening) and the bus left promptly on time. However, I was surprised to be on an old urban city bus that had been retired by the MTA. I really wonder whether it was legal for such a bus to run on highways and whether it could pass a safety inspection. The bus also had the genuine reek of stale urine. So a mixed experience overall.

    The bus is much cleaner, strong wifi and cheaper than Greyhound. All over is great services. Hope everyone should support them so they have more customers so we can have more options. Recommended!

    We used this company twice while in New York, both times they exceeded our expectations! The smartest and most polite drivers you could ever hope to encounter.

    Our drivers David & Michael, were brilliant! Both went out of their way to make sure two British visitors were looked after in the best possible way. Booking was straightforward, with any queries quickly responded to by the office. The cars were on time (early!) and spotlessly clean; you couldn't ask for a better service.

    You cannot go wrong engaging this company!

    I have used Golden class for a transfer from JFK to Manhattan, the car was so nice and clean. Our driver was super friendly and helpful, he had to wait for us for an hour as our flight delayed but without any extra charge. They track the flight and give you 1 hour free waiting time for the international flight, which is huge PLUS...

    This review is for a trip from Woods Hole to Boston Logan airport. I am a frequent passenger on this route. In my experience, the buses are seldom if ever on time in arriving at the airport. Today, due to rain and traffic, the bus was over an hour late to the airport and I missed my flight. As a result. I have had to book a hotel room in Boston and rebook my flight. The delays I encountered today are completely foreseeable when dealing with Boston traffic and weather in the summer. In my view, Peter Pan has consistently failed to take into account foreseeable and expected factors in planning a schedule that is achievable. This has been an ongoing issue with the service. I do give credit to the drivers who seem to be making an effort under intense pressure to execute on a schedule is unrealistic under current conditions. The only reason I continue to use this service is that there is no other option.

    Best birthday pizza tour, the trolley seating was perfect for interacting with friends as you can sit across from one another. Plenty off room to move around on the trolley.
    Great experience!

    Thank you New York Trolley!

    We did a company tour with the company where I was working around Manhattan with drinks and a guide a Saturday. We had visitors from overseas and it was a great way to see the city. Maybe the trips was a little too long with traffic but we ended up out in Long Island and had a great day. I hope the driver could stand us!

    On Friday, March 29, the 11:40 bus from Baltimore to NY arrived over three and a half hours late. In compensation, I was offered a voucher for $4.99 for a future trip. That just adds insult to injury. I missed a class that was scheduled to begin at 6:30 in NYC, for which I paid $65. $20 fee To reschedule the class to May, plus train fare, plus hotel. This is the second time I’ve chosen Megabus for a NY trip in the past six months and the second time there was a major delay ("breakdown that occurred on your bus service from New York, NY, Megabus Bus Stop - 34th St b/t 11th Ave and 12th Ave(NEW) to Baltimore, MD, White Marsh MTA Park & Ride(BAL) at 14:00 on 13 November 2023.
    We are working diligently to resolve this issue and expect a replacement bus to arrive in 45-60 minutes.") On a more positive note, the return bus to B-more was not AS late and the driver, Mark, was a real pleasure. His announcements were charming and funny.
