The seafood market had this strong odor of fishes which nearly made me throw up but I managed myself. We took great photographs throughout our days of the trip on the bus. And, I would like to appreciate the kind efforts of the tour agent on the bus who made our journey even more wonderful with friendly and appropriate services. My kids loved it!!

well that’s the drawback if you don’t like some attraction you must waste your time and then move to the next with the tour team. As though I have never been on a bus tour before but I like how it was managed that we didn’t have to do anything like the hotels were all set for us. Amazing time at Niagara Falls, NY, and DC. Thanks for the tour!
