my dad said it was all for you to kill the boredom, he just booked the tour online and took my and me with him on this 7-day bus tour. My dad always had great choices in his life and taking this bus tour from the professionals was one of them. Visitors took the Potomac boat cruise which was popular around the capital city. Well I think we toured the most famous and leading attractions of Philadelphia, DC, Big Apple, and of course the Niagara Falls. Pretty wonderful days!

The tour such a drag on the last two days we returned from Boston to New York, there were just some shopping tours, Broadway shows, military base tour, that weren’t my taste. Before that, we have visited some of the best places in New York, Philadephia, then the Washington DC. The capital was the most enjoyable place, along with enjoyment, there was a lot to learn and to explore, and I definitely do that pretty good. Being the youngest passenger with my friends, I think was a great adventurous experience, especially the management was super professional, they treated their guests all the same with great hospitality and care. Thank you guys, thanks for making our entire week so amazing!

The start of the bus tour was really quite appreciable because of the entire city tour in New York. The tour began as joined the team from NYC. First, we paid our way to visit the Empire State Building Top Floor to catch up those really inspiring views of New York. The central park looked so tiny from the top floor. Anyways, the Wall Street and Cruising around the Hudson River was absolutely lovely. There were just places we toured and some of the best ones were the White House, US Capitol, Niagara Falls, Smithsonian Museums, and Boston as well. The team was quite professional who led this bus tour and delivered us the quality service.

My husband and I really wanted to show our kid the Harvard University, West Point Training Base, White House, and similar other good places. I think the journey provided us the quality service that we really didn’t expect in the before joining the journey. The seat of the tours was easy and reliable for us, we just select our chosen tour and then click on the book to book it online. After two days, we board on this tour with my kids and to be honest, we didn’t find anything bad or to complain about this tour. I think all the passengers on the bus enjoyed the tour to the fullest. Niagara Falls is even more wonderful in the winters season.

Well, the time we booked the tour seats online, we were watching the Broadway Musical Shows on the television. Then, we found out we can go watch the live Broadway shows on this bus tour as well, which really inspired me on this bus tour. At the ending days of the trip, we saw the best of Boston, the Quincy market is really not that great but historically it has something for the travel enthusiasts. However, I would also like to mention the annoying bird that sat at the window of our hotel room and chirp the whole night at the Comfort Inn hotel. The lazy hotel management also couldn’t anything about it. It was a great bus tour, though.

As we entered the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, there was huge number of glass exhibits and all were categorized and it was definitely some kind of a paradise for art loves, we went on and on and exhibits never seemed to end, although we purchased some items at the stall. Later, that day, we went on to Niagara Falls Park where the tour leader charged us to provide a service to Old Fort Niagara which was absolutely worth it. The tour leader knew everything and provided us such a great service that ultimately helped to get the luxurious experience. Loved the hotels and the people on board with us.

the tour hosting agent was already there at the EWR airport to pick all the guests reaching the airport to join their tour. Pretty impressive service we received for our 7-day bus tour. The bus tour took all the guests to the New York to explore its actual spirit as we visited the Empire State Building, Hudson River on a boat cruise, Wall Street, Time Square and all the others. The memorials and history depicting landmarks at both Washington DC and Philadelphia refreshed my perception about this country. The shopping tour at Woodbury common was not just great; I mean who wants to buy clothes on the vacations out of the city? Well a lot of people say yes but not me.

Hii. We are from Indianapolis and wee recently happen to board this journey from New Jersey. They had a very cool service for those who were arriving from the plane rides like as arrived at the EWR airport in New Jersey, the company host was already their waiting for us and another passenger, they provided us a shuttle to hotels and the very next day tour began in the New York City. As compared to the services they offered, the overall bus tour became a little expensive for us but we got that. So wonderful to explore our country’s capital Washington DC, it refreshed my devotion to this country. Such a great bus tour from New York!
