it was nice to finally see all those wonderful sites of New Hemisphere and Boston City. There was quite much to explore, learn, and enjoy on our entire last five days. Although, the guiding service is appreciable from airport escorting to the travel bus guide. Wonderful experience!
Never thought that on a bus tour we could get so many great facilities like the guiding assistance, hotels, comfortable buses and so much more. My kids have fun, plus there should be more destinations on tour just like the White Mountain Forest Park. Incredible.
Booking the seats for the bus tours has gotten easier, and by booking our seats we got a special discount on that holiday offer. However, I was worried in the beginning that the tour might be some sort of lame or unenjoyable, fortunately, we had the best time of our lives on this bus tour. My wife and I stayed in decent hotels, and we started our days early in the morning, believe me, it’s the best tour experience one could ever have, not only because of the popular attractions but also because of the appropriate services and perfect tour schedule. Amazing!
It was the best tour we have ever had so far, the reason for us to love this tour was its great destination with such a nice provision of professional management. We made stops at so many wonderful places including the Mount Washington Cog Railway ride which literally took our breathes away. Keeping the tour team in lead is our tour guides job, guiding us, helping us, and providing us with all the information we wanted. However, thanks to the holiday season we got a free ticket discount which ultimately made this bus tour perfect for us. Wonderful time on board!
