I liked the tour and places we visited just in time for holidays. The only thing is that Bus was very cold, not the one you wanna be on for a long-distance ride during winter time.

I recommend this tour!

I really enjoyed this trip. It was my friend who booked this tour for the two of us, but as I enjoyed it very much I wanted to write this review myself. We saw a lot in two days. I particularly enjoyed the Adventure Aquarium, Longwood Gardens, and the Ice sculptures, very beautiful. Would strongly recommend this tour to others. Thank you our guide, Jerry Lin, he did a such a good job.
