The locations we visited were incredible on this tour. The hotels we accommodated was clean, the beds were perfect that after a long day of visiting and walking around, it offered the required rest and relaxation. The service/front desk was friendly and readily helpful. I recommend this tour package for people wishing to see most of East coast in a small time. The itinerary is well planned and organized, besides being well executed. Our tour guide was a female and she was really accommodating to all the requests made by the guests and ensured we got that we want. Value for money!
This is a well arranged tour for 8 days and is a perfect choice for people wishing to tour the United States in a small time and also do not wish to miss out on very important places. The bus journey throughout takes enough stops and we get to use the restroom, have dinners and lunches. My disappointment was about the bus quality. It was an old bus, though it was maintained clean and comfortable. Our tour guide was exceptional. She took good care of everything. The accommodations were good and overall a pretty comprehensive tour would be best with little changes.
