To be honest, I have never enjoyed and explored in the Washington DC, like we did on this tour, the tour operators were absolutely professional which ultimately helped us receive a quality service with a well-managed journey. We didn’t even waste a single second on the bus trip, but instead, we kept ourselves busy discovering so many places, plus the tour guide guided us and told so much about the places which we toured on the bus tour. I think it was a perfect bus journey with decent hotel stays, very nice!

My parents just drag me with them on this bus journey; at first, I didn’t think that It could be this amazing. My parents were really desperate to go see those Cherry Blossom Festival in DC, however, that wasn’t much fascinating, just the blooming flowers, and people all around it. Anyways. the time we had Tennessee was the best because from there we were able to visit the Great Smokies, and that really captivated me, because the mountain, the railway ride, was truly the most enjoyable thing one could ever imagine on a bus trip. Glad, the hotels were just OK, and not bad. It’s a great tour!

My wife and I just got back from this tour. We loved all the activities and the places we visit especially Ruby Falls and Rock City. The foliage atmosphere made it even better. Our tour guide, Max, is very friendly and quite attentive to everyone's need and was quite detailed about the activity of the day. We appreciate the comfortable accommodations and the complimentary breakfast. Everyone in our tour group was so nice. We will definitely take another tour soon.

Going on a schedule is common and we do not see places that are not our way was the complaint of my husband who loves visiting places and we booked for this tour. Eventually, this 4 day tour to smoky mountains, Tennessee and the cherry blossom tour took us out of the world.

13 5

Visiting Tennessee, smoky mountains and the cherry blossom tour in the 4 day tour was striking. In fact, each day was very special as all the places were beautiful and astounding. I was in a daze walking and looking at places with a stare. Great tour!
