The tour guide didn\'t say much and was a more annoying, She said she had just graduated from NYU in acting which I don\'t know if that is true or part of the act but NYU should cringe either way. I don\'t like this tour so much.

The best thing we loved about that tour is the tour guide. Our tour guide was really a great guy. He was very helpful and very professional yet so friendly and funny at the same time. Our bus was clean and comfortable though there was no bathroom available so we had to stop for breaks, the hotels were really clean and comfortable.
