At first, the tour seemed to be quite full of excitement because of the attracts were not seen or visited by me before, the rest of the days we spend wandering the New York, DC, and Niagara Falls. The way tour was delivered to us from online seat booking to customers, buses, and destinations, I think it was the best tour that one could experience in any season. Taking photographs at the Henry Ford’s were restricted at some point, but we still managed to get some great shots, as well as the White Hall and at the US Capitol buildings. The tour was well-managed, and I think there is no room to make it better, it’s perfect the way it is. Thanks.

I travelled to many places in USA and discovered a lot everywhere. However, I found Niagara Falls highly exceptional. Now I realize how millions of tourists go to view the breathtaking waterfalls of this place.

We visited so many places while departing from Chicago in morning. The tour was of seven days and the tour agents described all the places we were about to visit in the entire tour. Everything was well organized. We visited Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Niagara Falls, Washington DC, and Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York and few others on our seven days tour.

This was a planned tour with friends. The tour was good and the entire experience amazing. The accommodation was slightly disappointing when compared to the tour. This is still a very good tour.
