    Tour guide Ted was great!

    My family and I took this trip at the end of March 2017. Our tour guide Ted was very nice, explained everything thoroughly, and was very helpful. We had enough time to sightsee In Niagara Falls, we even had time to cross into Ontario, Canad...a. The time in Boston is very limited. It would have been nicer to have had more time since we arrived at New Jersey way to early. I say New Jersey, cause the tour says New York but the hotel is in New Jersey like an hour away from New York. We had to grab an Uber to take us to a near by shopping mall so that we had something to do, since there is nothing interesting to see where the hotel is. We were supposed to stay 2 nights at that hotel. But I decided to book a hotel in Manhattan. Obviously out of my own expense. I would recommend the tour company to let people know ahead of time that the New York stay is not really in New York. Try booking something closer to NYC! You should include the 9/11 memorial and museum in the itinerary. We did that on our own and it's an awesome experience. Read full review

    Excellent!

    My family and I decided to book this tour because of the great value and we had a great time. At first I was worried because we were not Chinese and don't speak the language. However, our tour guide June Lin was awesome! She had made our tr...ip very comfortable with her energy, attentiveness and care. She looked over my mom when my mom tripped on the bus and asked if I were ok when I looked a little tired. We can feel that she cared and paid attention to us and we felt her sincerity. She also made it very easy for my cousin to join latter during the tour. I think the company did a good job training their tour guide. Overall, I think the trip was well worth the value. We got to see many places and our favorite was the Niagara Fall. My parents loved it!!! The only not-so-good thing I can think of was the time was a too tight and sometime it was little hard to keep up but we all enjoyed Read full review

Hi Sir/Madam
I am interested in this tour. I have some questions:
1. I saw the start and finish location in Washington DC. Can I join the tour from DC but take bus to my home on the last day from New York? (Because going home from NY is faster for me!)
2. I just go by myself. But I saw you say I may be charged for single room. I willing to share my room with any stranger that in the same tour with me. Can you arrange that? (So I can save my money!)
3. Do you open this tour with start day from Independence day-mean July 04 (That is the start day I want to book!)?
