I don't see the point of spending too much of our time in traveling and at the certain sites like the financial district area of Big Apple. The service was appreciable as everything was on time and our travel hosting agent was such a nice human being and friendly to be more specific. I loved the White House building, Liberty Bell, Washington DC boating, and of course the Niagara Falls full trip. Awesome experience!
getting away from my home made me never sleep so well, but for the first time to due to the excellent service and luxury accommodations, we thoroughly had the best tour in the world & the hotels were just as decent and luxurious as one could ever imagine. All the sites were remarkable especially the second day’s full New York city tour in which we discovered the best of it. Amazing tour to board on! Impressive!
