In the holiday season, my friends and I felt like we needed to go somewhere and explore the famous places just as we did on this bus tour. However, the discounts on seat booking made me experience this bus tour, it sounded pretty reasonable in the first. We loved how we had a guided tour of the Yale Campus, also at the Harvard University. It was good to experience the appropriate services provided by the company. Hotels were just nice, not much luxury or expensive though. A week well spent.

I was wondering if the tour could be more of a personal tour experience rather than the bus full of people which had been with us throughout the very end of the journey. It was quite alright, as though we explored so many places and spent time at the sites till our heart's content. I liked how the tour was managed by the team. To go see the breakers house, they drove us to the Rhode Island from Connecticut which alone took quite a lot of time, but the breakers house was truly worth it. Great photography, friendly bus guide! Thanks.
