It was a very long yet exciting tourist package. For eight days, I and my friends got to see so much that we got back extremely satisfied. The booking experience was good and I loved the hotel services also. The whole trip was worth the price. I have recommended this package to couple of my friends already.

I wanted to book for a bus tour and was going through websites and happened to see this website announcing offers and it caught my attention. It worked out to fit my budget. All the details were organized and the accommodation was perfect.

The tour started late from almost all places making the time seem a little less. The entire tour felt a little hurried. A good tour overall, but could be much better.

All I would say that heading to Niagara, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia and NYC has changed my perspective about religion. I was an Atheist but now I feel that there is a creator who could only made such beautiful locations.

Finally after so many years of desire, I got to visit the Niagara Falls. The hotels were not great. The guide did not bother. The package did not satisfy me at all.

taking the journeys on a bus has become my number one priority when it comes to taking the family out on the vacations. Vocational trips have never been easier for me, thanks to the great services by our tour hosts throughout the tour duration. I just love how they put us on their first priority that they make sure everybody has a good time. We surely best explore the Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and the Washington DC. Niagara Falls was the best destinations on the tour, and we enjoyed a lot their taking the cruises and viewing the falls, it’s just so majestic. Thanks for providing us such a great facility as well as the finest hotels.

I never went to any place in USA. This was my first trip to the different American locations with my friends. I am amazed by seeing such wonderful views and loving America more.

There was just this woman with so many kids on board with us, and her young children cry bugged me quite well when we traveling in a closed bus with an astounding diversity of people. Thank God! We finally made it to the Niagara Falls, which was definitely the primary cause for me to take the journey, including the Washington tour and the Breaker mansions tour. All the places we have been to were either wonderful or super wonderful. I didn’t have any disappointment, instead of offering’s loud cry after every hour. I think I would take my few friends with on my next trip. Thanks for letting us stay in the best hotels in the area. Wonderful!
