The tour was well organized and our itinerary was packed. The time spent at each location was sufficient. The hotel was ok nothing to complain or rave about. My only issue was the lunch stop on our way back to New York. We were taken to a chinese buffet which cost around $17. There were no other restaurants available in the area. Overall,the tour was worth the cost. You can skip the chinese dinner on day one and get food from elsewhere.

Nice tour plan. The hotel was a nice one. I already recommended it to my friends. But last time when I availed this tour Baltimore inner harbor was included in this instead of Princeton university and Potomac river cruise. Great fun full two days trip. Looks like our tour guide was little inexperienced but tried hard to manage the whole program.

The tour guide, Lee, was a nice person, trying to provide the best experience that we could have. The accommodation was almost the best part, the hotel was super comfortable, clean, much more than I was expecting. The itinerary was good, however, we had to visit some places really quickly, especially the National Air and Space Museum. The bus was just ok: it was smelling weird and it was not really comfortable for a long trip. However, for the price that they charge us, I think this tour was a good trade-off.
