      Great Experience

      My mom and I really enjoyed touring the east coast. We really loved D.C. My uncle is a vet, so it really meant something to us to be able to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. I\'m usually wary of bus tours, but the services on the t...our were exceptional and made everything really easy for us. Thanks for changing my opinion Tours4fun. Read full review

      7-Day New East Coast Bus Tour

      My family and I had a great time on this trip-there was so much to see and do and the price was very reasonable for the services rendered! Our guide was really fun and she made the trip very memorable! New York was fascinating as was Philad...elphia- my kids just loved going up to the top of the Empire State Building and my wife\'s favourite highlight of New York was the Statue of Liberty in all her glory! I wish we could have spent more time in Washington D.C. because of the many tourist attractions I wanted to fit into our trip- but we just ran out of time!!! I am glad that we saw the most important ones that I had previously only seen in textbooks. My kids also went crazy for Hershey\'s Chocolate World- they never wanted to leave! I found some great souvenirs for my mother-in-law at the Corning Museum of Glass and was astounded at the beautiful Niagara Falls. Seeing the Falls at night was especially impressive! Boston was okay, but we preferred Rhode Island because of the shopping available for my wife. Overall we had a wonderful time, thank you very much tours4 fun! Read full review
