I’m really glad that we departed on this bus journey in the summer season because Maid of the Mist boat tour was opened. It took us closer to falls on Niagara River. This was the best kind of tour one could ever wish for. It was incredible that we explored so many attractions in six days plus the hotels in which we stayed were just fine. I would definitely appreciate the efforts of the tour agency for making it so great. God Bless.
Last Christmas, my parents took our whole family on this tour. I thought this tour would take forever, but I was wrong because I had the best time of my life visiting the tourist places of America. In New York the Empire state building observatory was really a nice idea, I mean it was so wonderful to see the entire city from the tallest building. The tour took us so many countless destinations including Niagara Falls, White House, and Boston Harbor. It’s really stunning. I would love to take this tour again. Best Tour!
We were more than pleased to be on this tour. The time just flew away and we were packing to home. It was like the places were in front of the eyes like a cinema. Everything was beautiful and the accommodation places were also one of the best choices. The tour operator took good care of the people traveling in his bus and the bus was neat and comfortable. The guide spoke and was friendly with us and my children were very fond of him. The dining options were really good and I enjoyed every bit of this tour from the first day.
New York and Niagara Falls were the places that made us finally experience this bus tour from Boston. However, there were loads of amazing places to visit such as the Harvard University, Corning, of course, the Washington DC. The time we spend at Washington DC and at New York was the best, Niagara Falls was also fun, but we enjoyed at DC,even more, the space museum helped us learn and discover so much about the latest NASA’s space programs. The hotels at the end of the day remained always the decent, especially Crowne Plaza was the most luxurious hotel we stayed the night. A perfect bus tour for friends & families!
We weren’t expecting the tour leader could be super interfering to the passengers on board, although the entire tour was led by our tour leader who had been such a great help, despite all that, I couldn’t appreciate the intervening attitude. We enjoyed wandering around those wonderful places including the Niagara Falls, such a majestic beauty. We enjoyed visiting our destination, Harvard University, Boston Harbor cruise, Hudson River cruise, all made our time wonderful. We had such great meals and had quite the decent accommodations. Good days!
A lovely tour and this was not my first tour with this operator. Earlier I had been on a different tour and it was only for four days. Now this tour for six days also had good arrangements. The bus was convenient and well maintained as usual. I liked the schedule of the tour and they covered all the places. They did not rush us into visiting any of the places. It was like a movie seeing each new place, so beautiful. I was disappointed as on the last two days, I had an upset stomach and failed to enjoy to the core.
