It was lovely being part of this bus trip. Best thing is, we booked our seats online a day before we boarded the tour. If you ask me, this online facility is a great idea for both the clients and customers. Princeton University and US Capitol tours were the best destinations, and our hotels at the end of the day were always decent. Especially the Holiday Inn hotel, it quite luxury and 5-starred.

A birthday treat it was, I took my close friends this time for this bus tour so that we had a great time with each other. Yes, indeed it was amazing. This was a 5 day tour and my God I was so happy to see many places covered in this time.

Visit to a Potomac River was my Childhood dream. I actually read a heart-touching story about a girl who lived in the premises of this river. It was very beautiful place beyond my expectations. Your reviews would also be same about this river once you see it.

Our first destination was the Empire State Building, and then we wander around that city to see more of the famous sites like the Fifth Avenue, Hudson River, US Intrepid. Our travel guide on the bus was a great person who had been a great help throughout the course of our journey. Just loved the time in Philadelphia, thanks for taking us to the Philadelphia where we toured the Independence History Park, wonderful attractions in there.
