it was the start of summer, I remember the time when we found this great tour deal, which gave one free ticket for buying 2 tickets for my parents, so I got in for free. I’m an enthusiast when it comes to traveling the famous historical and wonderful places; we packed all the stuff we would need. I have seen the Silver Cloud attraction in images but it’s nothing compared to when we finally got a visit and see it from our eyes, so breathtaking. Washington DC is filling up all those memorials and burial ground, it still has some great places to explore the like the White House, National Mall, and so on. Lovely time spent on this exceptional bus tour. Thanks for providing us with the discount.
it was such a lively time spent on the bus tour with my entire family. As we hopped in the bus, it was filled with diversity and the people came all the way from their countries and region’s to experience this tour with us. It was nothing but great. The Wall Street, World Trade Center, and Hudson River Boating gave us a good time in New York, and at Washington, we chose to spend the time around the grand monuments and visited the White House building, and US Capitol. However, the first day in Chicago was a huge drag, there was so many stops and there was so much to do, and felt a little tired of traveling. The tour offers a great chance of photographs. Overall, it was a great experience.
as we joined the team in Chicago, we didn’t realize that there was huge fun in the city is waiting for us. We had to explore the well-known landmarks in Chicago on the very first day. It was good to visit the 360-CHICAGO, Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, Chicago Theatre in Chicago. The start of the journey was so great, that we didn’t want to leave the city for the rest of the tour. Anyways, the New York City was great and it didn’t seem much crowded and bursting as the tour guide mentioned that it was super crowded. Our tour guide reserved some finest and suitable hotels for us, of course, they fine. Cheers.
we already some raging fun time we arrived from Vietnam to Chicago. The City looks so wonderful with all those massive sky touching buildings, fortunately, we had an Observatory in Chicago to visit, it was named as the 360 Chicago which helped us discover the city view is such a great way. We paid for this tour a week earlier, and we just couldn’t wait till it started. The destinations, on the other hand, at the DC and New York were great, we just enjoyed wandering the famous landmarks and it was lovely being around the tour guide so he could assist us in any way. Good hotels and service. Thumbs up
For the very obvious reasons we happened to book this bus tour, although my wife and I to take the kids on this bus tour because I really wanted to show them how wonderful the Niagara Falls, New York City. Philadelphia, and some other locations on the tour. We were expecting the management to give us some great discount on the tickets. However, the journey had so many wonderful places to explore and for me and my family, the Niagara Falls was the best place because we had so many things to do there. For an instance, we tried taking the optional tours of the boat cruises. Basically, we wanted to experience this tour like never before, also since we have paid a lot for this tour, so we wanted it to more special. We will try to take another bus the next month, and hopefully, they provide the same sort of quality services as they did on this one.
According to the tour we received, it was quite more amazing the things we read about this amazing new bus tour. The reason for me liking this bus tour is simply that it had all the great places like the Niagara Falls, Independence Hall, White House, and countless others. I can’t believe the Philadelphia has a massive region of historical places which still has the Liberty Bell. The tour guide was a helpful person who told us so much about the places we toured. Like when visiting the Philadelphia after the New York City Tour, we needed so many information regarding the historical landmarks, the tour guide was well trained, he told us about the independence hall, and how the American constitution and freedom was contracted back in the days. The washing DC tour was also great because of the cruise we happened to take on the Potomac River. I wonder what they when the snow falls starts, the tour boats can’t be operated in snowy or icy weather. We loved touring around the Niagara Falls Park, and the Watkins Glen state park was the absolute best location on this tour.
What a great tour to take for straight eight days. We have been around the Chicago city on the vacations when my wife got tired of visiting around Chicago, we decided to do something different and much more exciting on the course of our honeymoon session. However, we found out about his bus on the internet, we choose our destinations and favorite place to visit, then this tour came up which had all the things we wanted to do on the rest o the days. Although the tour started in Chicago. First, the told us that we are going to be exploring the famous places in the city of Chicago, which we have had toured already, so the first day was not much excitement for us since my wife had to take this tour before because of it had the amazing tour in Niagara Falls. the tour leader checked us in at the decent hotels. I think it is a perfect bus tour for anyone to experience. Loved the people on board!
First, the tour took us to New York. Where we spend the day visiting the wall street of New York, and the invited us down on the Hudson River where located the famous Statue of Liberty, we took the cruise from the harbor, it was really exciting to see the statue of liberty up close, and we easily see the twinkling skylines of New York. I was not on board this tour just takes a tour of New York since I have been living in this town for more than 20 years, I knew most of the things that happen here. Anyways, the tour leader expressed us that we are going to be visiting the major cities in the country. Glad, we thoroughly explored the Washington Dc, Philadelphia, New York, and Chicago. Although we had so much time Cleveland Ohio where we could have visited so many wonderful places, due to the shortage of time on the last day of the bus trip, we had to return to Chicago, from where they dropped us off at the airport. We didn’t find anything we could dislike about this tour, rather it was perfect and quite enjoyable for my family and I. Great tour for families and friends.
It was a lovely day, we reached down the New York from the long flights we took straight from Toronto. It was lovely the way the tour was led to us, all the things were managed so nicely. The way the tour guide provided us the quality service, I was shocked by the hospitality and the friendly behavior of that person. It was nice to have such a likable person to have for our guidance. For the very first time in our life, we took this bus tour from Chicago. Although, we have to wait for an hour for the hotel shuttles to arrive and pick up back to hotels which the tour leader mentioned on the phone where we would be staying. The best thing about his bus tour is that it had so many things to do and to visit on the day time, and at the end of the day, we had nice hotels to stay. The Comfort Inn in Chicago isn’t the only best option in the town, while it was recommended for us, so we just stayed there for the night. The tour helped us to take the memorable photos, and the Niagara Falls is always been my favorite place to visit in the summers. Great experience with the team!
