I wouldn’t mind taking the bus tour again in the next year as well, with the excellent management of our travel guides and destinations that we all could enjoy. I like everything about our bus journey. The best time we had was at the Times Square, DC, and at Niagara Falls. This journey definitely worth it.

the Corning Glass Museum in the Corning, New York was the finest stop we had on our days. I have never thought that there is a gigantic museum just to exhibit the glass items representing the science behind glassmaking. Besides, the New York countdown was enticing as there were fireworks which make the sky so colorful and twinkling. The view of White House gave me ghost bumps as it the only place which saw from our childhood on the television and it was wonderful to see it in actual. Thank You so much!

my brother recommended and bought us this full seven-day tour which was taking the passengers to innumerable locations in the big apple, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. The lobster dinner was highly recommended for all the guests but as I taste it was not that delicious as I heard about it; but still a best memorable dinner. My husband got sick on the tour, probably due to reason he is used to traveling to tours on the buses with non-stop adventure and activities. We had to dismiss the tour early.

we have seen some immense number top places of our country, but the way we see/visit them was exhausting because we had so many places on our schedule, and sometimes it gets very tiring by traveling and putting some much to have fun. Glad, we enjoyed at the New Year Countdown Zone, that was truly wonderful. Cheers!
