I always planned on having a tour out with my family, but this time, gladly I found this decent bus journey on the internet. To spend eight days out at Boston, DC, Philly, NY, and Canada were quite enough, since our travel turned out to be the best part of the journey who provided us with all the things we wanted including guided tours. Niagara Falls was truly the best site we explored throughout the eight days. I think this tour is sort of perfect for families looking for adventure and exploring the famous attractions around the East Coast. Thanks a lot.
The people on the bus were not that annoying as I expected them to be like, on my first bus tour experience. Mentioning the time we had at Thousand Island, which was not according to what we were supposed to do, the boating was closed and we couldn’t get around that area to see what it was so special for. Anyways, the first day got us all exhausted from exploring the entire New York which was fun and enjoyable as well. Thumbs up to the decent services.
well, the grand times' hotel was the worst hotel we got to stay in. we weren’t totally fine with the inappropriate services provided by grand times, we couldn’t sleep with the constant noise coming from their balcony, probably some jackhammers were used for some renovation. we traveled and explored so much in the daytime and the night time was for sleeping and resting out. So my next day was ruined by that. However, the rest of the days were fine since we only explored the attractive locations. Cheers!
