Overall the trip was good. The bus was clean and the seats were comfortable. Our tour guide was very friendly and the trip was very well organized. I would recommend this trip for people who do not like to drive long distances, because you can relax and also will get to see a few attractions such as Corning Museum of Glass, New York, Niagara Falls Washington D.C, and Boston within 5 days.

We are newlywed couple and planned this 5 day tour. It was all worthy, except that we got the last seat in the bus and had to go through bumps at times. Rest everything was find and visiting the places specified in the schedule was organized accordingly and nothing to regret.
