7 days are perfect for touring Washington DC to Niagara Falls, Boston, Toronto, Montreal and New York, I was fortunate enough to avail this tour from Washington DC which has a total duration of 7 days and 6 nights. This tour was truly exciting and gave me an opportunity to visit famous places like Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Thousand Island, Boston, Quebec, Washington DC itself and Philadelphia. All of this was available at a very high discount which was very pleasing.

I am in the sales and keep on my heels at all times. I was looking for a real break and believe me this tour package gave me the real break. This 7 day bus tour ensured all the places were visited with convenience and ease. The way towards Montreal, Toronto and Quebec were scenic.

The day I boarded it was not for 6 days tour. It was a 7 day tour package and was worried that I did a wrong calculation. But at the end I felt it would have been nice even if it extended for a day or two. I recommend.

It was great being part of the touring group that we joined from Maryland. The thing which I liked the most about the journey was its abundant destinations in both Canada and United States. I’m really happy that we toured the Ottawa, Montreal, especial the Niagara Falls from both sides. Our bus guide was a nice person who had been a great help for all passengers on board. The hotels at the end of each day were absolutely decent. I couldn’t ask for much enjoyment, Thanks a lot!

Spending majority of time at home for the last couple of months made me board this wonderful journey and free mind from exhaustion. I have never been on the bus tours before, but the experience wasn’t so bad after all. Online booking of tour seats is a great facility of this modern world. Everything was well managed. The Skylon Tower near Niagara Falls was wonderful. It was nice trip since they cared about the customers and we had the best time of our lives.
