These 8 days were phenomenal for me. Yes it was my honeymoon and we surely did enjoy each and every moment of this fantastic tour. All the tourist attractions were great and it is hard to pick the best ones. However if I really had to choose then I think the city of Virginia was simply great. I and my wife really enjoyed the downtown of the city. We had a nice candle light dinner in one of the restaurants. I also purchased a nice necklace for my wife from the one of the famous shopping center of the city. I surely cannot forget this tour and I did not know before this tour that America had so much to offer

This was my honeymoon it’s natural that this tour was very special to me. Due to my busy work schedule I did not had much time to discover different attractions of USA. Thanks to this tourist service, I got to know some of the best tourist destinations of USA. The overall tour went pretty economical for me and I have to say that it was well within my budget. I really enjoyed the Yellowstone Park; particularly the Grand Teton National Park was simply awesome. The only thing which I did not like about the tour was the bus service. I think the driver was too rash sometimes.
