Well, this tour was fine until the day 4.. we were heading to Upstate New York from Washington and unfortunately our tire got puncture, so they have to take their sweet tome of 2 hours to change one tire. As a result, we reached corning real late and had to cut our tour short. The whole day was a disaster. But the rest of the days made it up for it, we covered a lot of places and the guide gave us some extra time at some spots, which was nice.

I've been living in New York for 3 years now, my wife and i moved here. We both being busy with our jobs, we never really got to visit the places that everyone from around the world is so eager to see. So, after we looked around. this tour hit the nail right in the spot, the price was okay and features a lot of landmarks that I've only seen in pictures. I'm actually glad we board this tour, it was superb.. everyone on bus was super nice. Our tour guide, John was very nice and funny. I hope to board more tours from your agency. Thanks.
