I recommend this tour!

During this trip the surprise was that the 5 day tour is actually 3 and 2 day trips. We didn't know that we have to return to Boston (5 hour trip!) and spend the night there (that was not specified on the itinerary!). There was no response from the office (it was a Sunday), however the tour guide was polite and helpful. We did settle the problem eventually. Though there was a lot of driving, our quests from the Ukraine and Russia did like the trip.

My mom & relatives from India travelled to USA for the first time and were really happy to have this tour covered. One thing that was not planned was about the Tour Itinerary. The web site mentioned that the first destination would be DC, but it actually was Niagara. Also, the conductor was not sure until the last moment about the details of the hotel they were going to stay. This created some confusion as I wanted someone to meet them at hotel. Otherwise, they had good fun!
