I had planned earlier also for this tour and it failed to work. This time also I had my heart beating fast, but once we boarded the bus with our kids, everything was forgotten. This was an 8 day tour and Niagara Falls we spend the best time and Boston, Philadelphia and other places also was a relaxed visit.

An excellent tour overall. Good hotels, good tourist spots, perfect guide. I was a little unconvinced with the food offered. I don’t think anyone else had the same problem though.

I never thought we would have that much fun while going with a tour company but we had a astonishing 3 day trip. Visits to the prestigious institutes in Washington DC and New York like Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, Lincoln Memorial was the best part of the trip. It was a perfectly amazing guided tour ever. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.
