Just being done with my LLB exams, me and a friend found this trip online and booked it. This 7 day get away felt like a whole fortnight, given the amazing amount of fun we had on it. Very helpful tour guides and perfectly time-managed trip.
I was visiting my brother in Boston and out of the blue his company had him sent to New York City for the week on business. Thinking to travel I booked this 7 day trip and I can’t say I have been happier with such a spontaneous decision in my life. I saw amazing landmarks and had an insight into history. I even met my brother while staying in NYC. Best trip ever.
