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
