we loved the way our tour began in New York, first the tour management let us roam around the famous places in New York, the very next day we visited the marvel from history at the Philadelphia at the historic district. The most amazing time we had was at the Washington DC and also at the Niagara Falls. We spent quite enough time of two days at the falls, finally, we departed from there to explore the Boston City. The Harvard campus, MIT, cruising experience – all collectively made our journey so spectacular.

There was aquite diverse community of passengers on board with us, it was amazing to see that majority of the people were not native people, but from different countries and cultures. It was great to experience the bus tour with good people, such as our hosting person, Jaqueline Foremen helped us quite a lot. After experiencing all the fun days of a week, we were dropped off at the airports of New York to finally take our returning flights to our hometown. We didn’t have any disappointment or complaints, but it was totally worth it. Thanks.

Don’t know why we spent so much time in New York since we have self-explored the famous city so many times but still got to explore it one more time with the professional tour team. I liked the way this tour was management, it clearly showcases the professionalism of the tourism management. Despite all the great efforts and intentions, we still couldn’t get to stay at the hotels we wanted to stay, probably because they were far-ranged and the tour services don’t include any extra traveling. But it was alright!

there is just two people on the bus tour with us who were pretty grumpy and serious about everything had been my point of intention as we took the rides on the bus. Lincoln Memorial, Corning Glass Museum, Niagara Falls, Empire State Building, and all the majority of the attractions we went to were breathtaking and I am glad that we finally toured it. Thanks to wonderful bus journey that made us tour the best of the attractions.

my elder sister was just into spending her week on the vacation out of the city with us. Although my parents, booked us the tickets and we just had to take this bus tour which was starting from the New York City in a morning. At first, they took us to Philadelphia, then Washington DC, and the Niagara Falls. We tour many places that I could spend a day naming them. Funny fact that my sister turned out to have more fun than each of us as she never toured the Niagara and Washington DC.
