it was lovely being part of this amazing journey which we started from the New York City. I always tried to take my kids to the Disney attractions in Florida. Thanks to this great bus tour, which helped us explore the Florida’s best sites, especially the fireworks show, and Virginia Beach was the best sites we toured on our eight days of a bus trip. I don’t think we require anything else, the tour was well-managed by the travel guides, and the hotel, Red Roof Inn, was not so luxurious, but it was fine and quite decent to stay. My kids an I loved the bus journey. Thanks.

I never thought that we could have this much fun on the bus tour. First, they let us visit the Virginia Light Show, where my fiancé and I had a wonderful time. The optional tours are also the best things I found about this bus tour, in addition to the great destination like the Animal Kingdom, we had great lodgings to stay overnight. Wonderful experience, but it could have been more wonderful. Cheers.

First of all, the online seat booking facility is appreciable, we just browse to our favorite bus tour of theme parks and just booked it, it’s quick and quite facilitating. However, we missed the discount offer, after all, it was all worth it. We have two of our favorite sites Virginia Beach Light Show and the Disney Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This time, we had all the time in theworld to fully enjoy and explore the destinations till our heart’s content. Anyways, I think our hotels could have been a lot better but they were decent and peaceful. Thanks.

Orlando is home to our country’s finest theme parks, in fact, many visitors like us travel from many far regions to finally pay a visit those theme parks. However, the Sea World should be the most visit park because it’s amusing and entertaining to almost everyone. We liked how they optional destinations, just so we could select and enjoy the day like the way we wanted. The Island of Adventure is agreat place for kids, and the attractions were breathtaking. Great chance of photography and great stops.

My parents and I got a chance to board this famous bus tour we found on the internet. The management was quite responsive and friendly to their passengers, they just did a great job in order to deliver us the quality service they ought to. Including the days, we spent exploring the theme parks were enjoyable, but all of our destinations were crowded, as well as our bus on which our group traveled. It could have been our best experience of bus tour if we have had visited places without much crowded. But those were some great days out!
