Seriously, I have always wondered what is the best way to take the manage/plan a tour with everything managed, and I got me all answers when I departed on this seven days bus tour from New Jersey. On the Christmas holidays, I got the time of seven days and the tour seemed to be affordable, then why not take a shot? Anyways, to be more specific about my experience I would like mention the Amish Village, Princeton University, Whirl Pool Park, Niagara Falls, Boston and Hudson River were majestic. Amish village is like a Disney wonderland where an ancient farming culture people are spending their lives without interacting with the major inventions of the past couple of several centuries. It was nice to see all the places and thanks for my making my Christmas Holidays so fun.
We reached the Newark Liberty International Airport on the first and the tour guy was there waiting for us, it nice and quiet managed by the tour professionals. I didn’t realize our country is full of adorable destinations not just a few but in an extensive array. Glad we toured USS Intrepid because after learning about the war and how this aircraft carrier played its role was much important. We got into the financial district of New York City. Amish settlement is still surviving at the Lancaster, We best explored the Niagara Falls, and from there we also visited the Old Fort Niagara including all the three gigantic falls of the Niagara. Courtyard Hotel’s accommodation was the best, as well as all the lodgings, they were decent and worth to spent a luxurious night there.
I didn’t like exploring the Princeton University, and the Harvard University, from my point of view, I know they are world class institutes but still on my vacations and off days of work I would not like to spend my precious time there exploring young people rushing into their studies. However, we saw our renowned government landmarks such as the White house, Capitol Hill, as well as the presidential memorials at the Washington DC. I have heard so much about the Maid of the Mist boat tour on the Niagara River, and the worst part is that it was closed that day and we missed it. The hotels in which we spent the night weren’t just 4/5 star kind of but rather economy class.
