I wanted to make New Year’s Eve special for myself and my family, I found no better way to it than to go on a 7 day tour from Washington DC. I got a chance to enjoy Washington DC, Broadway Show, Corning Museum, New York Times Square and Boston. New York Avenue is also a really beautiful place and is a really enjoyable destination.

7 day tour we were happy as we had 10 more days to take our internship to begin. This was a nice opportunity to spend time seeing the best places of America. I can keep posting details about my visit. A nice tour!

Friends are all for me. We all love each other’s company and so are on this tour. It is nice to enjoy or visit places with friends. This was a 7 day tour, actually we were looking for 5 day tours, but we got this only, but we enjoyed the entire tour as it was a special tour and the countdown to New Year Eve was magic.

I went on this tour with my entire family and we had literally some great times. Those were definitely some special moments and I am grateful to the tour coordinators for such a pleasant and happening experience. My kids saw the Niagara Falls for the first time and they were so thrilled.

All the locations they took us was well picked. Although I would appreciate more of walking tours in landmark areas which we just passed by and could see only from the bus. Obviously there was a time limit so overall I am satisfied with the tour and would like to congratulate the organisers on a job well done.
