it was lovely seeing all the places that I have never wished to on our bus journey. I like the way toured all the places with great management and friendly services by our travel guide on the bus. The next thing I liked the most about my experience with the tour team was they provided us great hotel no matter in which we were in. Thanks. Love from Brazil.

there is no way that someone couldn’t enjoy at the Niagara Falls. Besides just watching the falls pouring down, there was a number of things we enjoyed doing. We didn’t have a good time traveling on the buses, which makes the most part of our trip. New York, DC, Philly, all were great to take a visit. Great Photograph opportunities.
