we began the journey from NY, but the site was already too crowded; glad we encounter the tour operator finally who later escorted us to the hotels and guided us all about the journey. We liked the services provided by the tour management, they respected and kept a friendly vibe with all the passengers on board. We definitely loved roaming around Philadelphia, New York, and Niagara Falls.

According to our experience on this bus tour, we found quite appealing as well as enjoyable on the very first few days. Our bus leader helped us see around Philadelphia, Washington, including several other places like west point base. Having a guided bus tour was such an amazing experience, we got to learn about the stuff while enjoying the charms of the site. Days well spent, thanks!
