After all, we have toured the biggest city of America New York City, and the capital Washington; of course, the destinations were excellent. There were many people on the bus with us, and there was also that one chubby lady who sat next to me who couldn’t stop bragging about her life and how she feels about everything. After touring and exploring the biggest city of America, we specially arrived at the New Jersey to stay in Red Roof Inn hotel, which wasn’t so good to let me have a good night sleep. Too bad we couldn’t get to take the maid of the mist tour on the Niagara River. On the Hudson River, we had a wonderful journey because of that Statue of Liberty.

Ever since I was being told by parents that we are going to go visit the Great Niagara Falls, White House, Statue of Liberty, and numerous other; the excitement was never-ending. On the hand by experiencing this tour service I realized that kind of service was the best to depart on vacation, I mean it was literally like we visit and a destination and go sit on the bus and arrive at the next, and then next, and so on. The tour people departed on the Maid & Mist boating adventure service which took them quite near to the largest falls on the Niagara River. It was wonderful and I remember that ate so much and also the energy of that was well consumed by the stunning places we have toured.

To be honest, I have never had this much of fun, excitement, and entertainment on a tour ever in my life. It was literally a breathtaking view of New York from the top floor observatory deck they got there at the Empire S. Building. It was really nice to see the White House Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Falls of Niagara, and countless other destinations which I have been desiring to visit in the last couple of weeks since this I toured them. All those famous educational institutes in the Boston city, and charming architectural & historic landmarks of Dc and Philadelphia just make me proud that I live in such a wonderful country. Cheers to the excellent service and accommodations.
