I was excited to go on this tour by bus. I just wanted to go somewhere and thus stepped into this bus. The kids sitting behind me were naughty brats and it irritated me frequently. But for it the 6 day tour was amazing and no complaints.

I took this 6-day tour with my family. It was fun to see all the different places in New York, Detroit and other cities that we had not been to before. Guide was outstanding and he really kept the tour organized. We weren’t rushed from one place to another rather he let us enjoy everything at our own pace. I have already recommended it to my friend.
