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.
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.
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.
