These 7 days were the best in my life. This was my first visit to USA and I was confused regarding the fact that how can I visit so many wonderful places of USA by myself. Thanks to this tourist service I have been able to witness almost all the popular destinations of USA. There are many places which I enjoyed however if I have to really choose then the Niagara Falls was one location which I can never forget. Really enjoyed the cruise and really enjoyed seeing Niagara from such a close distance. The hotels were very comfortable and the tour was economically good as well.

The tourist service was great and I really enjoyed each and every location of this tour. The touring guide was knowledgeable and shared some nice facts regarding the places with us which we did not know earlier. The empire state building and Niagara Falls were two locations which really made me fascinated. Overall everything was great on the tour. The only loop hole in the services was that, the bus driver was pretty rash at time and I saw some aged passengers getting panicked. Secondly I thing we could spend some more time on some famous destinations. I think the tour guide was pretty quick to move on some occasions.
