I went on this 7 days tour covering several places. They gave us a good time to see all the places and did not give a long gap keeping idle. Yes, the bus seats were fine, but some were a bit shaky giving discomfort. Had the bus seats being in excellent quality, it would have helped in traveling and enjoying a ride smoothly. But, for it all the places covered were good and the authentic food had in restaurants was tasty and never had one such before. The accommodation was neat, enough for two in a room and all well.  

16 1

This 7 days tour is offering an in-depth of all the vital places and also the prominent Universities such as Harvard and MIT. The accommodations at all the hotels were fairly good and nothing to complain about seriously. The tour organizers were very helpful and so was the tour guide explaining at every step each detail. The passengers in the tour group were from different places, but it looked like we all were a group. In this one week tour, we became good friends and have planned to go on such tours with this operator. I recommend for 5 stars.
