This time me and my sister planned to enjoy the celebration of Christmas in a new and different way. So we joined this tour. The tour was very economical and within our range. It was a great experience to visit Christmas Village. Too much lights and decoration. We took so many pictures and also bought so many gifts for our family. Our guide and driver were trained and skilled person. Reserved hotels were just basic but the buss was very comfortable. Thanks for making our days. Love

I was thinking to relax out from this daily routine. I took few holidays from the work and found this tour deal on the internet. As the days were already near to Christmas there were attractions like the Koziar’s Christmas Village which sure sounded like a fascinating thing t discover on the trip. The started out fine, as in fact there were pretty much to visit such as the Reading Terminal Market, Adventure Aquarium, Hershey’s Chocolate World, and the Amish Village. Our 2-days on the trip were remarkable.

Places were cool, sites were soothing and driving was so peaceful. It was not only going into the places and exploring but all the places across the roads and their views were jaw dropping and I felt so relaxed while sightseeing the view while sitting in a very comfortable bus with lovely music. Meals were just perfect. I loved visiting places like adventure aquarium and the Amish farm. Excellent trip!

I have never enjoyed this much before, thanks for this great bus tour offer. At first, I thought the tour might get lazy but all my worries went away as we wandered around the Koziar's Christmas Village. Then, the Hershey Chocolate World made our trip even more wonderful. My fiancé and I a great opportunity to enjoy, take photographs and explore the great sites especially the Amish Farm. Great Experience! Best Christmas Ever!

I was so lucky that the temperature was so moderate during the entire trip that we did not need air condition for most of the time inside the bus. Cool breezing air from the windows of the bus and refreshing sights were true sights of nature. Interesting information from guide and tour was good to know as being natives they were so aware of local languages and best places of eateries. My review can never be completed without appreciating Baltimore Maryland and Christmas village. Happy days!!

I saw many people saying that we now don’t have to worry about planning a tour as there are bus scheduled journeys available which just take the visitors and stop at the scheduled destinations. We took this bus trip in the early months of the year. I can’t forget this amazing experience on board, especially at the Amish Village. We spent our night at the Best Western which is one of the renowned hotels in the city.

I always admire bus tours and I enjoy them a lot. It is full of fun and safe way. I have experienced many other good bus tours and found many of them very comfortable. This time it was really the same and I felt good about my selection. I picked this because of its excellent reviews and found it a very convenient way to explore destinations with no more stress. Its team was having good drivers and guides as well. We were provided a very generous gentle man as our guide whose name was Lee. We enjoyed his ascent in presentations with interesting stories. Stops were managed well. Thanks a lot!!!

Despite all the appropriate services provided by our touring management, our destinations were also the reason for this one luxury and joyful journey. My kids just loved the destinations, both the Christmas Village & Hershey's Chocolate World were pretty wonderful. I think this one of the best family-friendly bus tours on the internet. Thanks for the luxury services including our accommodations at Best Western Hotel. Cheers!

The most favorite thing of this trip along with destinations was shopping experience. From the selection of hotel to the selections of shopping items all was done in the guidance of Lee. He was a man who knew what to say and when to say. He was not poking his nose but gave suggestions on my demand. He was having much knowledge about all aspects of this tour. I got many items of famous brands at reasonable price. Such mature and skilled people are the asset of this bus tour. Go and get the beauty of places and feel of good shopping with no worries. Many thanks!!

More or less all destinations were just super cool for me but the exceptional beauty of Koziar,s Christmas village was too beautiful to experience. I adore the beauty of almost all destinations in this tour of adorable lightening. I was happy with the team of bus but did not feel that okay with accommodations. Rooms were small and the room service was very poor. The team told me that such issues were normal on Christmas of New year but made me uncomfortable.
