When I arrived back at my home I started to miss the amazing time we had on the bus tour with incredible hotels and destinations. The entire family of mine boarded and the golden thing about this tour was the friendly and appropriate facility provided by the tour agency: our travel guide was a nice guy. The best day I experienced was our last day because there was so much to do and enjoy, we took the right time in a morning to step on the Empire State Building’s Observatory and then the Hudson River Cruise: what a wonderful time. Well, I wasn’t prepared for the scary stuff at the Salem Witch Museum but really that was brilliant. Those were some best five days of my life. Thanks a lot!

If you are a US citizen you must get a ticket from wherever you live, and go on this tour that demands only 5 days of break from your busy schedule.  The tour was great and the tour was decent. I learned a lot and saw a lot of cool things. There is no doubt that going on this tour is a great way to explore and learn about what they do in each place and the importance of each place. I did not feel happy with my bus seat as it was a bit hard and I had to go with it for the entire tour.

There were so many points in our journey where I happened to wonder that are we going to stop the bus and visit something? Due to the excessive traveling and bus rides. Our destinations were far distanced; therefore we got to reach on the bus. Acadia National Park, the York Zoo, and New England Aquarium all were just pretty enjoyable. The accommodations were the best and stayed in the best hotels in town as well as to mention the Comfort Inn Hotel which was so luxurious. We saw so many natural attractions and it was wonderful. Love from Turkey!

This tour is a must go tour when you come to New York. The tour is highly professional and well done. Give yourself a full tour for 5 days and maybe even some extra time to walk around if possible in the gorgeous surroundings. My tour guide was perfect. He was humorous, knowledgeable, and witty. He ensured the tour was informative and at the same time kept smiling. Overall, the tour week was great and our tour guide was absolutely great. The accommodation to sightseeing and transportation, all were good. Will certainly come back for more tours, I recommend five stars.
