the reason or us to board this new bus tour was its two days’ time spent in the Niagara Falls region. I mean, who doesn’t want to spend the weekend at the Niagara Falls. It was so beautiful, the falls, the boat cruises, and the tour manager let us explore the Cave of the Winds attraction which someplace near the Goat Island. We really enjoyed this bus tour not only because of the Niagara Falls. It turned out that the part has better attractions for the rest of the days scheduled for us. On the third day we departed from the Niagara Falls and went straight to the Thousand Islands between the Canadian borders, we took a cruise there, and they showed us all the historical charms of the beautiful place. Then we returned to Boston, where the Harvard University and MIT were located side by side. The tour leader let us a full tour of Harvard University. Although, it has always been my dream to get admission in Harvard. Anyways, touring the Harvard made the journey all worth it.

We had an incredible tour for 5 days. I can say confidently accomplished a milestone after seeing the beautiful Niagara Falls. The coordinator planned the tour perfectly. Everything was within our budget, timeline and so we got into this tour bus and everything happened. There was no stress and was an effortless tour as every detail was taken care by the tour operator and the guide. Though we knew nothing about the areas we were visiting, we never felt alone as with the seeing, our guide gave us the required information and equipped us with knowledge essential. Great tour, recommend 5 stars.

The accommodation arrangements were appropriate right from Day 1. We never had to bother about the facilities or the transportation. Everything was taken care of. The planned tour went as per the program and we were dropped and picked from the said location. The tour was seamless, the tour operator and the guide ensured everything was intact, before the departure and without fail checked everyone had arrived. The guide stayed in touch throughout the trip and ensured everything was smooth. I gave 3 stars as I wanted the stay at Niagara Falls to be extended for another one entire day.

Hi guys! We recently took this bus journey and I would like to mention a few things s about our experience with the team. Keeping that mind, I have never been of traveling on buses with the people especially the long distance as we did on this bus tour. The booking of the tour seats was really simple and easy to book, we just opened on the bus tour platform online, and found a perfect tour for us with our favorite destination and departure location. The tour team started off with the very first stop at the Niagara Falls. We spend a great tie there, and later the days we went forwards towards the Boston and Thousand Island, and Martha’s Vineyard is absolutely the best place we toured so far on the tour. There was just so much to do there and amazing thing about it is that we have to take a ferry ride to just reach that lonely island, either we could just the plane ride and take the ferry to reach there. we close to take ferry ride because it was less expensive and convenient for us.

at first, I was just thinking about what we are going to do inside Harvard University, as we finally reached there, the tour person took the led and took us the inside the Campus, we saw the student culture, and then they took us to some sort of Hall Fame where all the names of the Harvard students were mentioned who took the success and studied from the Harvard Campus. I was totally loving the thousand island site, but they told us to miss the cruise since the time was already short and we have to reach the Boston city. However, the Boston was the fun and enjoyable since there was so much to explore.  Although by taking Harvard Tour and spending a huge time there made us miss the MIT Tour, although we took some photographs of MIT. Although, we took some really great photographs throughout the course of the bus journey. By just looking at the photos we could remember the great time we had with the team. Cheers!

We remember the time when we have to take a flight to Houston to Boston. Where the bus tour was going to start. However, we got a little let while calming the luggage at the airports, and the tour team so punctual they couldn’t wait for the arrivals, they could have just started off with the tour without hopping us on. Anyways, we speed up from the airports and reach the bus tour core beauty it left the area. Our first destination was really amazing; it was the Niagara Falls. We didn’t realize that the Niagara Falls has a total of three major falls. However, the Horseshoe Bend seemed to be all aside from the other two falls, it was closer to the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls. When we took the Maid of the Mist boat cruise on the Niagara Falls then we fully explored the park while witnessing all the great attractions that are located inside the Niagara Falls Park region. In Boston, we enjoyed the Skywalk Observatory, and then we explored the Quincy where we tasted the recommended to Boston Lobster. Then the tour got finished and dropped us off at the Drop-off locations in Boston city. It was a great bus tour, thanks a lot.

In the winter season, the Maid cruise closed for safety concerns, too bad, since we were all dreaming all about the Maid of the Mist cruise and it was closed that day., However, the Niagara Jet boats gave us the amount of fun we were looking for. The jet boats traveled far to the major attractions in the Niagara Falls park. By spending more time at the Niagara Falls, we happened to explore the core charms of the region. It was absolutely amazing being part of the journey, all the passengers on board with us were really good, and everyone seemed like they had a great time including us. Mentioning the Oak Bluffs Village Area at Thousand Island site. It was lovely to see that this lonely island of Martha’s has an abandoned historical village inside, they small cottages with lush greenery just made feel like it’s Switzerland. We could have just spent the night there in those cottages and explored the Martha’s Vineyard. However, the wine tasting and farms were really great to explore. Thanks for the amazing bus tour, it could not have been more perfect and enjoyable.

I don’t understand why we had to have such a huge day in Boston. It was already the day of the tour, and at the end of the day despite traveling back to our hometown, we decided to spend another night in Boston since we all got so tired due to excessive traveling. However, it t could be a lot perfect if we explored fewer places rather than jumping from place to another. However, the tour people delivered what they promised us. We stayed in such great hotels, although they were economy class hotels but hey cost us a lot with the breakfast and the dinners. However, we did the lunch somewhere between the course of the journey and ate the rest of the meals at our hotels. The hotels were good including our traveling buses and the tour guide on the bus. I was totally astonished by the great job the tour leader delivered to us. We definitely like a board on another journey sooner, and hopefully, we will come all the way prepared for the journey. Thanks!

  Hi. we are from China and I would like to mention something I experience. The weirdest thing happened to me on the tour, was that the rain started to pour while we were cruising down the Niagara Falls, and the raindrops started to put a little from my side of the window. Although, I complained that to my tour leader and he couldn’t do much about I rather than just changing my seat. I know it’s not anyone’s fault or anything, and it’s a small thing to discuss.  Other than this, the tour was really and enjoyable. My whole family was with me and they all had such a great time at the Niagara Falls, and the at the Boston City tour, and then the Harvard University, the Observation Deck. It was a great bus tour with a lot of fun, with great locations to explore. Thanks for making this bus tour so wonderful!
