I booked this tour in advance for my parents. They are coming from Germany. At first I was afraid but it was very well executed everything was perfectly on time and the accommodations were a great help. The hotel rooms were neat and tidy. Niagara Falls and Boston were truly the most fascinating places for me and my parents, it was our first time. In addition, our tour guide was a huge help, he is very nice and friendly. I highly recommend this tour.
didn’t have any problem and disappoint on the course of our bus journey. Instead, it was a well-managed and well-delivered tour, our bus guide on the bus such a nice person to all the passengers on board. The best time we had was at the Niagara Falls where we got the chance to see around the Niagara Falls eve better, especially the Maid Mist cruise was memorable and the Tour host led the group to see the Fort of Niagara and others. Lovely time Boston.
Very nice hotel accommodations and everything was very nice, our guide strictly followed the timing and we happened to visit a lot of places because of that. If I were to pick the best out of all the tour then it would certainly be the Niagara Fall, it is very beautiful during the night time… the lightings in surrounding it catches your eye. Plus the Corning museum of glass which is the one of a kid glass museum in the entire country and we could even purchase our favorite items at the exhibition stalls they had.
despite all the traveling and fuss, we actually had a great time on the bus. But we had to travel a lot to visit our far distanced destinations scheduled on the journey. However, the places we toured were truly remarkable, and we took really great photos such as at the Harvard Campus and Niagara Falls. I think the hotels were the best thing I found about this journey. Thanks a lot for providing us this great vacation.
Accommodations provided by the agency were very nice. We stayed in really nice hotels and you can actually save some money if you are sharing the room with someone else, you will need it for later because this tour has a lot of small hidden customer paid activities. I have one complain that on our way back from Boston we stopped for the dinner and we couldn’t find any place so we had to eat the Chinese buffet, it got really experience. Other than that, tour is very nice. We visited so many places in so little time.
