Our Tour Guide Bryan and bus driver Paul are exceptionally great! Both are polite, knowledgeable, and friendly to accommodate each individual’s needs. The group is a combination of visitors from a few countries like China, Italy, India, and Morocco. Bryan, with the assistance of Paul, was able to make all of us like a big family; the atmosphere was very fun, relaxing, and enjoyable.
I got this ticket luck by chance. A person sitting beside me in a train left it forgetfully. I saw it was this tour for the weekend and contacted the tour operator and the man, he was far away. He asked me to go now it was impossible for him to return. Lucky was I and the tour was fabulous.
It was a sparkling experience with the lights of fun and the pleasure was all with adorable service from the beginning to the end of this bus tour. It was not a trip of some minor places; entire cities were covered and their famous landmarks were a part of itinerary (and I loved that aspect a lot). I was wondering for such a trip of some days where I could explore much with no hurry and worry. The best part for me was; much time was given; to some amazing cities and I simply adore all its areas. Washington DC and New York City exploration was a memorable and very precious experience for me in this long trip of 5 days.
I do not think that we missed any famous milestones of all amazing cities in this 5 day tour. I was very much into those tours where there is nature but this time I chose a different bus tour where history and informative places were the true reflection. I really enjoyed being there at amazing places with a trained team. New York experience along with New England Aquarium and Trinity Church were interesting in this 5 days tour on bus. Every passing day was decorated with top class attractions and without a proper team we would have enjoyed it that much how much we did with a proper team. Thanks for an excellent tour! Highly recommending it to all people!
I was very much interesting in all rich historical places and loved visiting Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center in this beautiful trip of long tenure of 5 days. It was not an outside visit of pass by experience of such amazing places but inside traveling around was the best thing for me in this tour. There is a special feel of amazing beauty of places and generous attitude of the guide and driver also inspires you. Driver is never late at places to pick and drop you. Many thanks with definite recommendations from my side.
Very engaging trips for all the passengers of this bus because I found the way of explaining about the places and their videos and pictures so fascinating!! First day was so relaxing and hotel selection was made so easy by the guide. I loved more or less all the places of this 5 days trip because detailing was all there to make us feel connected to the places. Amazing historical places and memorials were a part of this trip and history lovers can have amazing time with this bus tour the ways I had. Lot of admiration from my side for all the favors of this amazing bus tour of 5 days! Memorable tour!
A very in depth tour in exploring the details of amazing cities. Appropriate time was given to the visitors as I noticed from the itinerary while joining it that pace of time is very flexible. New York City and MIT visit were very interesting experiences for me in this 5 day tour because I found it a learning platform as well. All the acknowledgment goes to the informative guides of this trip. Those who want a relaxed tour and in depth exploration of places must join this bus tour! All the good elements are ready for the visitors in this trip.
I went to all the mentioned places on this tour with my husband for our wedding anniversary and it was good. The hotels were good and comfortable. We went to different Universities and also many amazzing tourist places like National Air and Space Museum, Potomac River Cruise, Independence Hall, Empire State Building and Times Square to view Statue of Liberty. It was great. I have recommended this package to my friends.
All the places of this bus tour are truly amazing for all the visitors and these places do have that appealing power. New York City and Boston experience was a fantastic memory of this in depth tour of world class and famous cities of America. Anyone who is deciding to book its tickets must fasten hiss seat belts because its wing of joy going to blow to in magical world. Many thanks for an interesting, colorful and historical tour of 5 days of many variations.
Reduce the number of places to visit and give us more time to spend in other places. We didn't find anything great in Baltimore. We could have directly gone to Washington DC and spent a little more time there. The time given at each location is definitely not sufficient. It would have been great if you give only few choices and give more time to spend. Not satisfied with the trip.
