      Great tour and services

      The tour covered 2 states in 2 days which was great for us. There was a lot of travelling but we managed to see the main attractions. The Armish village tour was the highlight of the tour. Hotel was great. Kitty was a great guide and Simon ...drove us around really well. The only down side was the bus air con broke down. But Kitty handled it well, ordered us another bus.

      You get what you pay for.

      It's good as much as the price. The best things is our tour guide for this trip, Jame Hwang. He was a very great guide, always take cares of everyone, explain everything clearly in English and Chinese. The hotel and food are also nice (due ...to this price). The plan is not clear and we spend too little time in Washington DC if you want to focus more on Washington's attraction I recommend you to stay more by yourself. but overall is good we have a great time with this tour.
