the places we toured on our trip were satisfying and totally worth a visit; to make point of more obvious; In Washington DC, we had the pretty all the time in the world to best explore the White House, Space Museum, and even board a board ride. And same goes with the Philadelphia and New York City; we toured the best! Thank You for providing us the honest, affordable, enjoyable, and a journey with high-class hotel reservations. Good Tour!

Now that I have found the touring world, I would love to take my family out for some adventure and fun, like this 5-day tour itself. The tour wasn't just too much expensive as I anticipated because there are a bunch of people in my family to whom I got to buy the ticket for. Anyways, New York City was the most wonderful part of my experience because we toured it all. It's was exhausting to travel from places to places but it worth it!
