To be honest, I wasn’t willing to depart on this bus tour that my wife found on the internet. However, when my wife and I departed in this journey on her request, they took us to famous locations in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC and others. the tour was breathtaking and deeply appreciate the efforts on providing us the stunning journey of eight days. Hotels were fine. Thank You.
I would say that the eight-day bus tour was just OK. Probably because it could have been better by adding more attractions on each day or maybe it’s my tempo for the site exploration. I admit that the tour was fun and the hotels in which we stayed were so relaxing and I slept really well. Niagara Falls, Boston, NYC journey were super excellent.
