we arrived right on time in Boston where the management welcomed us and finally we started the journey on the buses. However, our aunt nanny and dad seemed a little exhausted because of the traveling to Boston from our hometown. Despite the rush hour, we still managed to have fun and enjoy the bus tour to the fullest. Washington DC has been my favorite city, now that I have toured it the way I wanted, it has become even more appealing. I can’t get enough of the Washington DC, and thanks for arranging the river cruise which really made our time even more wonderful. I wouldn’t say that the Comfort Inn hotel was so good, but it’s quite economically decent and worth it.
Definitely a tour worth going to! Take Friday off from your schedule, and take this tour! I absolutely loved the tour. 3 amazing cities, and spending overnight DC was something you’ll cherish. It is such an amazing city. Its been a week since I went, and I am still scrolling through my photo albums. You wont find a better tour than this, that too in this price!
winters bring the freezing temperature in both the DC and New York. It almost felt like we were standing on the North Pole, really cold. The top of the Empire State Building was good in such a way that the city views were so remarkable and we could see the skyscrapers and bustling city culture without even a single noise. The time we had in Philadelphia was the best, we rather chose to explore the historical park and thanks to our travel manager who led the entire team and told so much about the landmarks we toured. The people on the bus on board with us seemed to have a great time, although the bus was full of diverse people, nonetheless, it was such a wonderful journey.
I went on this tour with my husband, it was a good tour, knowing our hectic schedule throughout the year. We enjoyed a lot, but the only thing not good was that it was super tiring. We couldn’t get enough rest before travelling to another city or location. Other than that, it was a good tour
I remember the time it was a lovely morning in Boston we began our journeyand travel straight to Philadelphia. Although Philadelphia is our hometown, we got there in Bostonto then returned to Philly with the bus full of people. It’s great to see our travel guide working sohard on leading the crew members inside the US Capitol, also at the Independence Historical Park. Ilike the fact that the tour team helped us get around the landmarks completely, we explored everyplace until our heart’s content, mentioning the tour guide efforts, that has been a great help. Thetime we spend in New York City was the best, there was so much to do and to explore throughoutthis exciting bus tour of three days. Great experience.
Well, the first day could have been a lot better, if we had more sites to visit inPhiladelphia. It is a massive city full of attractions, but our team chose very few places like theObservation Deck and the Historical Park. It could have been a lot of fun and exciting for us.Although, all the people on the bus seemed to enjoy the tour. As we reached the Washington DC,we are just wandering around from place to another, but as we experience that sightseeing boatcruise on the river, it gave us such a great time, we definitely tried getting our tour filmed, andfortunately, we did a great photography on this bus tour. I would definitely love to see more placeson those discounted tickets for the bus. Thanks for providing us with nice hotels around the region.
Don’t know what’s so amazing about this three-day tour. According to our tourexperience, we found out so many things about this new tour company, especially our destinationslike the Empire State Building, White House, Independence Hall, and that Liberty Bell gave us suchgood time. My kids and I were so excited about this tour ever since we booked our seats online afew days earlier when we boarded this journey from the Boston town. The tour fun but I think thetour should have more fun places like the Empire State Building where were able to catch the cityviews from the Observation Deck. Everything went pretty nice and well, basically we followed ourschedule and visited very place right on time. We didn’t have any complaints regarding ourexperience.
There is only one way to explore the perfect view of Philadelphia is by visitingthe One Liberty Observation Deck which is exactly we did during our brief time in Philadelphia.The tour operator helped us providing all the evenhanded information regarding any place wetoured. The tour was very well managed and that is the primary reason we enjoyed this bus to thefullest. The thing I don’ liked much is that our tour bus was entirely filled with the diversecommunity of people, and the people came all around the world on this amazing tour to go explorethe famous attractions in our country. Thanks for refreshing the history of America. Great timeWashington DC
t was just in my head that we were going to go on the cruise in WashingtonDC, but unluckily, in winters they closed the boat rides due the safety concerns, but rather the tourmanager decided to take us to the International Museum of Spies, it was wonderful visiting thatmuseum. The Philadelphia City Tour was amazing, the Liberty Hell, The Historical Park all were soenchanting, and we received great knowledge from our tour manager. I was shocked the way wetook a complete tour of the New York City. The tour manager managed a night tour especially forus, we just wandered the downtown, and head over to the river walk and visited some of the topplaces, it was nice.
