Our visit was also truly good; the guide was excellent as he showered us with information. At times it was too heavy to know about world wars and the trouble, but was an interesting history unknown. Everything was taken care of and the food choices were good. The places for dining and lunch were never compromised and we were not hurried. The hotel room on Day 5 was too small. It looked liked it just began to end soon. A bit larger room would have appeared fresh and roomy or airy. It was nice otherwise and everything was rightly taken care of.

We had a fascinating tour on this eight days tour package. It was unbelievably the best tour. Luckily the climate also was favorable and showed no unpredicted changes. We saw the entire best places o New York, Philadelphia and Boston. The visit was the best with our tour guide, Ross, who never gave up with any information. He explained every bit of the detail and was given an extra support by the driver with some detailed information. Each and every place was rightly planned and so we always had enough time to move for the next without any hurry. A nice tour worth 5 stars.
