We are a couple from Singapore and it will be our first time to US. We are considering between 1) 9-Day U.S. East Coast & Canada Deluxe Shopping Tour: Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, Niagara Falls, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Toronto, Thousand Islands & Quebec (Product Code: 23-89577) and 2) 9-Day East Coast Tour to NY, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Boston & Niagara Falls (with NY airport transfer) (Product Code: 82-2993). Other than the fact that Tour 1 includes Canada, can you let us know what other differences there are? Since they are both 9 days long, does it mean that option 1 is less 'in depth' and more rushed given that it includes Canada? We would also like to know if there are any differences between the two packages in terms of quality of hotel, etc.
We will return to New York after the trip to tour New York on our own so we are less keen on spending too much time in New York. Which tour package will be better for us in that aspect?
Thanks! 04/10/2016 05:53:59
Tour 23-89577 will visit Canada but tour 82-2993 will not, this is the major difference between these two tours. tour 82-2993 offers visiting Atlantic City and Yale University but tour 23-89577 does not. The arrangement for the US part is very similar.
Since both tour will include 1-day New York city tour, you can consider based on the difference between them.
Thanks for your inquiry.
