2-Day From New York/New jersey to Philadelphia and Washington DC Tour

2-Day From New York/New jersey to Philadelphia and Washington DC Tour

My parents and I took this trip in January and Karen Yao, our guide, covered all the itineraries as listed, and was very helpful and understanding to my father who has some mobility issues and cannot walk very fast. This is a good tour that stopped at many places within the 2 days and is a very good value.

4-Day Los Angeles to Las Vegas and Barstow Outlet Shopping Tour (Free Airport Pickup)

4-Day Los Angeles to Las Vegas and Barstow Outlet Shopping Tour (Free Airport Pickup)

Great tour. Awesome guide, Gary who did a marvelous job. But for the traffic jams in LA on the return journey, every aspect of the tour had been well planned and organized. Let me also scribe down a quick summary of how this went by for us recently. Day 1 - We landed in LAX airport and there was a person waiting to pick us up and board onto the hotel shuttle. That was really good. We paid $30 for the hotel drop-off. The hotel was good and served a good breakfast the next day morning. And there was a supermarket nearby from which we were able to buy some stuff like juice and snacks Day 2 - Started from the hotel in LA at around 7.30 am with Gary allotting us seats and starting the journey to LV. There were couple of more pickup points with tourists joining the trip. The first stopover was at Bairstow station for coffee. Then the next stopover was at Fashion Mall Outlets on the outskirts of LV, where we had lunch as well. Then finally we reached the STRAT hotel in LV in the evening. After a break, we went onto the "night tour" of LV (charged separately). The tour was interesting and exciting that lasted for about 3:30 hours. Day 3 - We were told to be ready by 5 am for the Grand Canyon West Rim tour and we were ready too. One batch of tourists left for the tour of South Rim and another batch for the Antelope GC tour. But we were stuck due to an issue with the bus and were told to get back to rooms and be ready for the revised tour departure at 9 AM. That was disappointing, but we had no other choice. But I have to mention that Gary managed to get another bus quickly and we were able to start the tour at 9 AM. The first stop was at Hoover Dam which was a great spectacle in itself. Then the tour proceeded to Grand Canyon West Rim. It was a long journey indeed. We reached GC at around 1 pm and were told that we were told to be back at the bus by 5 pm. Gary was kind enough to collect the money from the tourists and got us the tickets at GC, thereby saving precious minutes. Some tourists took the helicopter tour as well. We departed from GC at around 5 pm and were able to reach the hotel back in time for dinner. Day 4 - Departed from LV hotel at 7.30 am and the first stop was at the Chocolate Factory + Cactus Garden. Then after a short journey reached Chang's Asian Dimsum restaurant where we were able to taste some interesting Asian delicacies. The tour departed from this place at around 10.30 am and after a long journey reached the Bairstow Outlets in CA. Got a 2 hour break to have lunch and do some shopping as well. The journey restarted at around 3 pm but had to tackle the heavy traffic in and around LA as we were nearing the city. We were about 70 miles away from LA when the driver found a technical snag in the bus and had to stop it. Gary was frantically trying to check for alternatives in the meantime. He even went to the extent of arranging one van for the tourists proceeding to the airport and another mini-bus for the other tourists. But luck was on our side that the bus driver was able to FIX the technical snag himself and the journey restarted within a few minutes. We were all really amazed at the manner in which Gary and the driver, both handled the tense moment. Full marks to both of them. We were able to reach LAX airport well ahead of time to catch our return flight to our place. On the whole, it was a memorable trip. Gary was an awesome guide to be able to conduct the tour in a professional manner. He was also giving the commentary in both English and Chinese languages fluently. One tip that I would like to provide to other tourists is to try choose a tour that has lesser time on the road to avoid the kind of experiences that we had to encounter.
