I am overwhelmed to give this review as I enjoyed with my family this one week tour. It was the best tour ever that we enjoyed. We got lot of different places to visit and all the places were renowned. The places we visited were very interesting and the Niagara falls mist of the maid was awesome. Though we felt scared for a minute, later we were unable to forget the feel of it. Everything was well planned and organized by the tour operator, and so I have left my phone number to him to inform me of the next tour.

on our days of the tour, we learn so much about our own country. Let’s just say Niagara Falls is a significant attraction of our country, but instead of that, all the places we toured like the Harvard, Metropolitan Museum, Independence Halls, all deserved the same appreciation as the Niagara Falls because they were quite stunning, and I am glad that we get to finally toured them. Boston City wasn’t just so fun but the harbor cruise was quite enjoyable, besides my kids loved it. Nice accommodations.

well I heard that the Maid & Mist cruise is adventurous, fun and memorable, unfortunately, it was shut down for the cold weather. Eight days were quite enough for a tour we were like non-stop visit the places and fortunately, they all deserve a great applause. That Observatory in Philadelphia was amazing because they had the Benjamin Franklin statue erected inside the building. The places weren’t just too crowded, plus I want to appreciate the efforts of our travel hosts who did a great job helping and guiding us all. The White House and presidential memorials, Niagara Falls, Princeton, and Harvard University all just made me proud that we live in such a wonderful country. Lovely days and lovely service

We are a newly married couple and this can be termed as our first tour together outside. The best part of this tour was they covered best of the renowned places. All the arrangements done by the tour operator was perfect and so was the bus. It was neat and we had comfortable seats that even after such long tours we did not feel any sort of discomfort. The hotel rooms were equally good and the only disappointment was the guide English for us to understand was not easy. Though he tried explaining, we had difficulty in understanding, will learn it soon.
