The tour was well executed. We visit many places, took loads of pictures, and had fun time at Niagara Falls (my ultimate dream fulfilled finally!). Enjoyed every bit of the moments we spent travelling, and looking around NYC. Also, the Corning glass museum tour was not only fun, but the tour guide was so helpful in explaining everything, and guiding us throughout the tour in such a friendly manner that it felt like he was just another traveller with us. I am definitely saving up for another tour next season! Kudos!

The tour was tiring, but exciting. I think the number of places should’ve been reduced, and we would rather be spending more time at one place, than short times on multiple. It, however, provided a lot of learning options for son who was travelling around States for the first time. He enjoyed a lot as well. As a whole, it was good enough, and very economical. I hope the company can offer more economical and learning tours around States for young parents like me.
