Overall good, great value for the money but no one warned us that the tour guide would be collecting an extra $133 per person IN CASH on the bus, for the attractions and meals. that gave us a shock, but we opted out of some of the attractions and paid only $39 per person.

i would definitely recommend this tour. Our tour guide was great, the Hotel room looked amazing. We were booked at the Holiday Inn, the room was very clean and new, I was actually shocked how nice it was. The places that we visited was great. I loved D.C and the caverns in Virginia. Philly and Baltimore were ok, nice scenery but nothing to special. Guide does not give you much time at each stop, but enough time to take pictures and walk around a bit. The coach bus that we traveled in was very comfortable and nice. I would definitely use this company again. Im looking to book my next trip for memorial weekend. I'm so happy I found this company.

I recommend this tour!

The tour was good and comfortable. The guide Stan managed the tour very nicely and on time. The hotel was good. My only recommendation would be to provide more time at Inner Harbor, Baltimore. Half an hour is not sufficient to explore it.

Harrington was a great tour guide. In addition to what was on the itinerary, we were also taken to a great Chinese buffet for dinner and lunch. Everything was included.

Posted by: MARTINA on 2015-11-22

In my opinion, a tour like this is too much for 2 days only. Everything must be done in maximum 1 hour and you don't have time to really enjoy one of the attractions. The accommodation was really comfortable and the driver and tour guide are really courteous and kind, but unfortunately there is no wi-fi in the bus. I enjoyed the travel but if I could give an advice to the organizer, it would be to lighten the tour schedule as to better enjoy the travel and attractions.

This was our second trip with TakeTours and the experience is really good. It's always well planned & an organized tour. The accommodations are excellent.

I recommend this tour!

The trip was good but too rushed. Tour guide, Bill, was good with non- Chinese speaking passengers. Bus driver was calm and confident. Holiday Inn accommodation was good but no breakfast. If a tour company brings the Motel 50 passengers per day, they should provide breakfast. Facts- The tip is not $8, it's $10 for the trip per passenger. Picked up 10 passengers from New Jersey, so 3 hrs were cut off from the trip planner. Did 4 bookings with this company...will recommend again... Just carry cash ......and strong feet......
