At first, the tour didn’t seem much exciting but as the days went by we started to actually have a great time. The tour host mentioned our next stops so better prepare ourselves. The Maid Of the Mist cruise experience was the best, they let wear the plastic jackets and they drive beneath the mists of the Niagara Falls, it was absolutely breathtaking to experience. The tour leader helped us to explore each and every well-known place in Washington DC, New York and in Boston. I would say this bus tour had been the most amazing and exciting tour for me, and I was looking out for some sort of bus of the bus which offers everything related to traveling. Loved the tour!

I was worried that I might get sick due to changing weather, and different climates of the regions. Even though If I fall sick, I knew the manager will do something about it, he seemed like the most friendly and helpful person on the tour. I wasn’t sure about all the places we toured were amazing but some the best include the Wall Street, Empire Building Observatory, Corning Museum, Smithsonian Museums, Yale University, and the Rhode Islands’ Breakers House. It was a wonderful tour which not only transferred us to such great places but also provided us with relevant information, hotels, and good restaurants. For me and my friends, the tour was amazing.

The buses should move fast so we could have spent less time traveling and more time wandering around our favorite locations. The tour leader managed an entire City Tour in New York and in Washington DC which helped us discover the true nature of those cities. The tour was also great at the Boston were board the ship at the Harbor. International Spy Museum was like a paradise for me, I have never even thought about those sort of museums actually exists. Lovely time on board, the crew as amazing, as well as our stops, and I would definitely recommend anyone to experience this bus tour in any season because of the professional tour management and decent hotels. Thanks!

I still remember the time on this tour, and one thing really bugged me on the day we went to the Rhode Island. Although the bus tour was really wonderful and worth experiencing a least for once in a lifetime, the things are, we traveled such a long distanced to finally visit the breakers mansion which was great, but we could have visited someplace else that didn't require the much traveling. The tour leader guided us in a such a great way at the Independence Park in Philadephia, it sounded like the country’s history is folk tale or story from a book – lovely. The bus was full of decent people, good to so many wonderful places with my family in the summers.

The tour services included the transportation, tour guide, and just it. Rest of all, we had to pay and do on our own. It’s a great tour if we already have a good company of experienced travelers, family, or relatives because all the people on board with us came from quite distant countries and quite a few of them speak English. Mentioning the great places and fun we had on this tour was entirely because of the beauty of the falls, such as the Niagara Falls, White House, and then the tour guide led the people inside the US Capitol where we saw so much that we couldn’t have without the bus tour. I really appreciate the kind efforts and providing us the great hotels at the end of the day.
