New York is my hometown for over 20 years from now. I have always thought that I knew everything about this city, its attractions, and landmarks. But I was not entirely correct since on this bus tour, they let us explore the true core spirit of Big Apple. Not only that, we will also best explore the Philadelphia, Boston, and DC. Best service with a tour guide! We loved the trip, the best!!!

I learned that traveling on a bus full of people is not my thing. Admitting the tour bus people did try to us to the top-notch attractions and provided the best hotels, but we must cover a lot of distance to reach our destinations. My kids really had fun at the Niagara Falls, probably since it’s the most beautiful natural site in our country. Could be a perfect experience for me, although it was fun and lovely.
