I loved seeing how they treated their guests in quite an appropriate and helpful manner. Everyone seemed so excited in the very beginning of the bus tour. Furthermore, there was a huge distance we covered on those buses with a travel guide. We started the journey in Philly and later went to Washington DC, New York, Boston, Niagara Falls, Newport, and some other major sites. The tour had such wonderful schedule in especially New York City which helped us to discover the authentic culture of that bustling old town. No matter what the age of the passengers was, everybody seemed to have a superb experience.

For a honeymoon, my fiancé and I planned to board the bus journey since we wanted to avoid any fatigues relating to travel. We selected this tour options that seemed quite reasonable for us due to the free ticket offer, we instantly booked the tour. Talking about those wonderful places we had on our scheduled days, they were pretty quite wonderful actually. The Breakers Mansion and Niagara Falls were the best spots on the 7 days bus tour expedition. I’m nothing but thankful for letting us have such a wonderful honeymoon for both of us. Thanks a lot.

we came from Vietnam a week earlier after we book the tour for 4 passengers online. Personally, I love America and on this bus tour, it just refreshed my admiration of the country. They also took us to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC which was a little sad to see all the soldiers buried in the ground. Despite the continuous back-to-back stops on the tour, we still managed to have good meals, although the tour was a bit expensive in terms of what they provided us. We chose to stay at the Hilton Lodge in New York City.

Bringing the family out on the tours has always been a great deal and massive drag for, the kids just got exhausted so early and I had to care of them in anyhow. We explored so many major cities in the United States some of the best were Washington DC, New York, and of course the Boston. The breakers mansion was wonderful too; they put so many efforts and money in protecting that historical building. Niagara Falls was fun because of the Misty Cruise we chose to experience. Good days!

Departing the tour from Philadelphia wasn’t just the right location for us since we live in Washington DC, we went to Philly joined the tour, and then they drove us back to DC for a City Tour. In the start the tour guide seemed pretty friendly to customers, after few days, we get to know each other and I just appreciate the way the bus tour was managed by the professional team, we didn’t waste a second, rather we spent time visiting the attractions and taking photographs. The destinations were definitely the best. Niagara Falls was wonderful.
