We arrived in New York a day before the tour departure. The team was already there busy escorting the people from foreign plane rides; it was lovely to see all the diverse community of people on board with us. New York has never failed in entertaining us whether it’s the great attractions or hotels, mentioning the time we had in Time Square Area where everyone was going insane partying all the booze. The tour was absolutely wonderful for us. Thank you to the great team.

on the very day of our arrival in New York, we were already so exhausted that we couldn’t experience those extensive tours they were offering at the time. The inside tour of US Capitol was terrific; the tour guide led the tour inside mentioning all the sites there, also at Harvard. Our bus guide was a friendly person, which is also the best part of this tour that we get a great guide for us. It was huge fun at the Countdown Area in New York. I really wished the tour ends and keep enjoying our luxurious tour services. Thumbs up for this tour!

As we entered the Niagara Falls, there were quite a few of the visitors who came out to visit that wonder at that time. It was a good thing for us since most of the places we toured were less crowded even in New York. The tour management was great. My husband and I took a little time off in the Niagara Falls to explore it all by ourselves as we did back in our honeymoon days, good to bring all the memories. DC, Boston, and New York were the best. We loved the tour and definitely seek out another similar bus tour on our next holidays. Wonderful Experience!

there is no other best way to spend the New Year that boarding this bus journey from New York. The reason for us to board on this public bus journey was it had so many wonderful stops such as the Niagara Falls, White House, Boson, New York, and many more. We just really great family photos, we will never forget this experience, the family was already there on the holiday season so it was a great choice for us to finally go out on the tour. However, the hotel in Boston wasn’t any good but still, we managed to get a good night sleep after all. Cheers!

The starting days of the bus tour was much better than the rest of the days we experienced. It wasn’t just the attractions that were missing on the rest of the days, but we got so sick of traveling that we just wish to get the bus and dismiss the tour, but we paid a lot for this. Niagara Falls was such a remarkable place, taking kids there for the first was great. We liked the tour guide, Marilyn on the bus, such a remarkable person with a friendly attitude. The observation deck in Philadelphia was truly breathtaking as compared to Empire State Building Observatory. We enjoyed a lot.

I don’t see why the tour cost so much while we have to pay for our hotels, food, and entrance charges. They charged us for their big buses and the travel hosting services. Including the fact that the bus tour was absolutely fun and super fun for us, but they should charge not much for it. Anyways, taking the family out with me on this bus tour came out to be the best decision so far, since everyone enjoyed especially at the Times Square where we had a huge party blast. So glad, we left a day earlier right after the New Year Countdown. Great fun package!
