Our tour guide organized and managed the tour very well and he speaks English fluently so it wasn’t much problem to some of the English speaking tourists. Hotel was nice, nothing over someone rave about. Itinerary is well put. It was very nice seeing Philadelphia for the very first time and Shenandoah Caverns were spectacular, I took too many photos. Highly recommended journey it is. The independence park was really amazing because a lot of historic events took place there.

Our tour guide ensured everything was on right track. We truly appreciate your help, Max. There were not many people on the tour with us, therefore it executed perfectly on time and we get to spend some extra time at the Philadelphia, it was really nice visiting the Independence Hall and witnessing the Liberty bell. Hopefully I will join you guys more on the tours, very soon. Probably in the next summer vacations because that’s the best time explore the attractions in a pleasant weather unlike in winters.

Tour executed perfectly on time... Accommodations were great. Our tour guide was very friendly and spoke English very well. We visited a lot of attractions... If you have to visit all the places you have to say goodbye to the sleep since I didn’t much because we had to get up very early for out next destination. There were a lot of Asian people on the tour; I couldn’t bond much because of the language barrier. It could have been better.

Highly efficient tour to see a lot in two days! We started with the tour and toured major spots and also enjoyed the river cruise on the Potomac. Our tour guide, Chris was not only entertaining but also extremely knowledgeable. He played with the kids and ensured the adults do not get bored. Answered spontaneously and admitted when he did not know details. I did not like the hotel room, it appeared very much simple. A better arrangement would have been better. Otherwise, the tour was good. The passengers in the bus were reasonable, not too communicative, but were good.

This tour offers you exposure to several things, and it delivers everything it says. The tour includes seeing the best sites, and the tour information was offered by the guide. There was enough time to sightseeing and not much rush. We also got time to span pictures to catch up later with memories. the food to one day accommodation at the hotel was done appropriately, meeting the committed standards by the tour operator. Right from the pick up to the drop off, it was as per the scheduled plan and so no waste of time anywhere. I recommend 5 stars.
