I went for this trip with my family and it was so much fun. My parents loved it. The booking went on well and everything was arranged, including amazing hotels. I have recommended this trip to a few of my friends and relatives.

I have come from outside and as usual wish to see other places. Traveling all alone is not right for me or for my wallet. This bus tour is really affordable. The golden bus tour for 9 days especially gave a clear sight of the New Year eve and the tour was fabulous.

I have never been on any island tour and this package includes Rhode Island tour and I had heard a lot about this place. I was glad it was my best tour.
