Thank God we all came entirely prepared for the journey we were going to have. Walking/hiking shoes came really handy while exploring the places such as the Whiteface Mountains, Adirondack Park. One thing I really liked about the bus tour was its luxury services, driving us to decent locations and the tour guide with us helped us throughout the time. At the end of the day, we had such nice accommodations in economy class hotels. Great bus tour experience, and thanks a lot!
we never could even think of taking the lobster fishing cruise in Maine, also, the Harvard University guided tour. The best part of this tour was at the Plymouth's Whale Watching Cruise, we waited for about half an hour than we came to get the glance of those gigantic creatures. New England Aquarium was also amazing, but it’s nothing compared to the breathtaking we had on the Plymouth's Whale Watching Cruise. It felt really good to spend such days with family having fun and discovering new stuff. Best Tour.
This was a great trip and I got a real break from my home. I was actually tied up with family health issues and needed a break now that everything got sorted. I took this six days tour and it was fascinating as they covered many places and all were really good. I loved each place and our guide helped with adequate information. Our driver also gave a smooth ride and the accommodations were more than expected. I was glad to be on this tour and I will surely recommend my circle of friends and relatives to take this tour.
I am on this tour with one of my friends with whom I am actually not very close. He is my friend’s roommate. As he had an extra ticket, he came for my friend and my friend was unwell and I am into this tour not by choice. But, now I can say I am lucky to have made into this tour. Wow, they took us to marvelous places of visit and the bus ride was good, the tour guide kept on giving information. The only disappointment was I could not do shopping though there were discounts as I did not carry much money.
