The tour guide who just guided the whole visitors crowd deserves a little more appreciation because of the appropriate efforts and potential to just have the knowledge of everything on the tour and guiding the passengers about it. I think the tour fee really paid-off the worth on the amazing tour of eight days. we went to numerous memorials, parks, and country’s renowned attractions such as the White House and Independence Park. Good hotels!
Traveling is my hobby and being part of the hobby includes the fact that I like to learn and discover new places which interest me. After the 8 days of the trip I found out that I was missing the Washing DC and Philadelphia as indeed we explored the entire cities and the stunning view of White House, Philadelphia’s iconic Liberty Bell, Independence Hall's Park all just refreshed my true to the country. New York full city tour was also spectacular. Niagara Falls would be the destination which I can't erase from my memory as it quite interests me.
