I had time to spare for a quick vacation and to my luck I was able to go on a 7-day tour through Washington DC, this tour was luckily available on Thursday’s and Sunday’s. the actual duration of this tour was 7 days and 6 nights which was the exact time which I had for a vacation. This tour allowed me to visit Yale university, Corning Museum, Washington DC, Boston and Niagara Falls that was too exciting.

I wouldn’t say that the trip was entirely the best experience for me. I have been on a number of long bus tours, and this tour was one of the best one since it had the best destinations, and the hotels were really impressive. But the thing which bugged me is that we had to cover a massive distance on the buses full of people from all around the world. I also want to thank our bus guide, who had been such a great help in providing us quality service. My kids had a great time since they had their favorite places on the schedule.

Taking the family out on the vacations had been a great deal for me, at first, my wife and I had to make plans and find spots to stay, and all that. Ever since we discovered the bus tours, it has become quite facilitating and amazing as well. Now when we have to go on vacations we just book our seats online, and that’s almost everything that we have to do. The tour was once one of the best trips we have ever taken so far. Just loved the time Washington DC, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, and of course the New York City. Thanks for letting us visiting us so many places. It’s a great bus tour and it really fit in our economical budget. Wonderful!
