It was so great being part of the bus tour team, that in fact, was the best kind of a tour that one could ever anticipate. All my life I have to take the family out on the vacations on public transportation, however, on this journey, the buses were booked for us for eight days, and we kept on traveling and enjoying until the very end of the bus tour. The bus person accommodated us at the hotels, mentioning the Quality Inn hotel in which we stayed a couple of nights was decent. Thanks for providing us this great bus tour. We enjoyed a lot.

winters were already at its peak, and the Christmas season too. I liked how we began the tour at the Gaylord Resort which was even chillier place than outside, they kept the snow to fulfill the Christmas spirit, the massive tree inside was looked so magnificent. Anyways, the Orlando Eye was wonderful for its views, I have seen that wheel so many times and never took a ride on it, but this time we did and believe me it’s even more wonderful than it looks. Thanks for letting us explore all the famous Disneyland parks till our heart’s content. I’m nothing but thankful for such great bus facility. Good days!

First of all, I would like the give thumbs up for the great professional team who took charge in guiding and leading the entire bus tour. The team led us to so many wonderful places and kept enjoying throughout the course of this our journey. However, the Hollywood Studios was just not the kind of place I was hoping it be, but rather it was good in its own way. In St. Augustine and Miami we spent the best time, the Miami beaches were just as great as they should be. Loved every second on this bus tour. Cheers to the everyone on board!

I have no complains about the company, they did their best in delivering their job. We were a little apprehensive in the start whether to take this tour or not as we had no idea about this company other than internet reviews, but with the passage of the first day of the tour we were convinced that this is the tour we wanted to go for. The driver especially was brilliant, even if there were some initial delays due to traffic but later we pulled off all shortcomings.

I was worried at the start of the tour, that we might not have and my kids already got lazy while traveling on the buses. Later the days after visiting those Christmas attractions at the Potomac River, they provided us with great optional tours, we chose to visit the Disneyland parks every time. The Disneyland theme parks have never failed in entertaining their visitors. The team was quite punctual and everyone sticks to the schedule. We definitely admire the appropriate services by the tour team, we would certainly try to board another tour in the next winters. Thanks.

I have been on the several bus tours before, to be honest, this bus tour has been the best with respect to its destination, hotels, shops, food, buses, and basically it had everything for a luxury bus tour. Buses were ready for us to travel, we just got on the bus and traveled to our favorite sites. Although I really wished that we had something more to do in St Augustine, it was great the way we toured it, but there is still a massive space for adding more destinations for us. Still, it was good to walk the historical pathways exploring some sites there. Overall, I would it was a really good experience.
