I couldn’t believe that we have had visited so much in just a week. From the bustling New York and Philadelphia to the Montreal streets, Ottawa, and what more? So glad we finally got to experience this bus journey. We would like to appreciate the excellent services provided by the tour team which also include the hotels and the tour guide services. Thanks a lot. That tour meant a lot to me and my family. We would definitely experience another bus tour on our next summer vacations. Cheers!

 my father had already taken many tours like this and had a good experience in choosing tours. After some research and suggestions from my relatives, we choose this one and one word for it is; Amazing. It was amazing. I am a foodie and enjoyed every single dish included in this tour. Also, we visited almost every place we heard about that was famous. The services were outstanding and I sure do recommend this a lot of my friends.

There is a mad variety of places to visit each day and that's why I and my friends decided to take this tour. We had doubts about the hotels but the hotel choiuce4 was amazing and with full accommodations. We learned a lot about the history of the places on this tour thanks to the tour guide. But, however, towards the end of the tour _ the bus service was not as good as in the start. But it definitely was a great experience!

The visit guide was tolerant and learned. She said everything in both English and Chinese. It was befuddling at the outset. In any case, everything worked out extraordinary.
