We took the 3-Day New York/New Jersey to Washington DC, Philadelphia, Cave of the Winds and Niagara Falls In-Depth Tour Our Tour Guide was great and entirely approachable. He gave all the information very clearly and in a timely manner. The entire visit was very Organized. The facilities and food stops were ideal for everybody (variety of food available). I just felt the bus could have been slightly more comfortable because of the Leg space overall it was fine. The itinerary was very well designed. Overall excellent tour at the cost you pay and useful for individuals coming from abroad and locally.

Our bus driver, the Captain, made our trip very pleasant, safe, and always on time. The schedule is pretty busy, we usually stay busy visiting the places and on the road for about 12-13 hour a day, but it is completely worth because the hotels are great and the places we visited are extremely beautiful.
