I recommend this tour. I am happy to choose this bus tour operator. The accommodation, the guide and the driver, did not disappoint us. This was a 6 day tour and amazingly we saw many places and covered prominent places such as Hershey, Boston, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, outlet shopping and more.

My parents had not been out for a long time and so booked for all 4 of us. Parents, me and my naughty sister, all four of us had a lovely time than expected. This was actually a long stay of 6 days, but we visited so many places and the outlet shopping experience, the best!

Shopping is my first and last love. My boyfriend also gets annoyed with this habit of mine. The major reason of choosing this tour is to exploring the unique markets of different regions of USA.

I was amazed by the efficient coordination between tour guide and the driver; fast hotel check-ins; and the itinerary which used the time effectively. Participants were encouraged to be punctual but sometimes they were pressured to be on board 5-10 minutes before the time, making people like me who tried to enjoy every bit of my time, somewhat chaotic. Itinerary was well balanced.
