It was a very nice holiday trip for me and my family. The weather was rainy on the first day but later weather became better as I enjoy rain more than clean weather. My guide guided me to use umbrella on that day but I enjoyed rain, sorry John I love the rain that’s why preferred not using an umbrella. Your fun during the entire trip was a memorable part of this trip. I found you a very knowledgeable guide and your professional attitude also inspired me a lot. I enjoyed the visit of the World War II Memorial. Excellent job!... I will recommend this tour to all and want to come again with my friends.

it seemed quite a lot fun at the beginning of the bus trip, since we get to enter the Harvard University which was good for my kids to see around this world-famous campus, it probably helped my kids in a way. After we finished exploring DC, we went to the International Spying Museum, it was the best. Loved the White House and US Capitol Tour, it helped us learn about those two most powerful building in our country. Thanks for this bus tour, although the hotels could have been a lot better.

I want to start with first stage that is the booking and communication step. When I got a positive and quick response I felt really satisfied. I was happy with the admirable communication with your staff. I found that services were good along with informative website. As I was also happy with the directions on the itinerary about places and other places that came in my way. Then moving towards destination, we were completely satisfied by pick and drop timing as it was exactly the way it was mentioned except one day due to technical fault. The accommodations were close to each other and we found good options there. Finally, the route destinations were incredible. New York City Night Tour was really memorable. Good music in a bus was good to the ears with no need of switching to headphones. It sometimes gives you great pleasure in exploring amazing destinations with such a fine and perfect company. Thanks a lot!. Missing good days.

I enjoyed the long routes that were taken because driving was fun to enjoy in this trip and roads were so perfect. Sights were just amazing that I enjoyed the experience of clicking the beauty of nature and its colors. I loved exploring destinations like the Lincoln Memorial and tour of Princeton University. I found these places and their charms exceptional. It was not easy to keep your eyes on the road because the view and places were so beautiful that we did not miss the chance to have their viewing experience. Taste of food during this trip was also very good as I found many options in the meal and group meals were a fun experience.
