First of all it was very good trip and tour guide was very cooperative. There were few problems on the very first day. The bus arrived 1.5 hour after the scheduled time on the scheduled venue which made us feel very annoying. Even at that time, they were saying that they may cancel the trip. But finally the bus came and our journey started.As we lost 1.5 hour waiting for the bus, tour operator shorten down the attraction visit timings, so we hardly could see the attractions on that day. Moreover the hotel booked was 40-50 miles away from city. Not sure why they did not book the hotel on time. So the first day of tour was not good. After that 2nd and 3rd day, we enjoyed a lot and we got ample time for attractions. For that we congratulate you people. You did a good job. We hope to meet you again.

It was my first trip to New York and the highlight of my stay there was the 3 day trip 17-19/02/2016 Niagara Falls Washington DC Tour. I recommend this tour as lots of beautiful sites to see and one get to travel from NY across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Philadelphia and back LA. The Tour Guide Mai Zhang was awesome covering both English and Mandarine languages, not forgetting the bus driver Hua. Thank you for a fantastic holiday in USA.

Everything was great. No need to enter every attraction that you may not want to see. It was selective. On the last day of the trip, the tour guide and the driver did not stop for breakfast so we had the breakfast at almost noon! What?!

It's not bad. A bit rush trip. Should try.

Tour Guide - Stan is a young guide and does decent in terms of guiding us. Draw Back is not sharing enough information about each point. A major issue is they should repair the bus vocal audio. Accommodation - Accommodation is awesome, but they cut off the complimentary breakfast, but never mind. Transportation : The bus was not at all good. They should work on giving a good bus. Itinerary : Itinerary was good within this short time frame, still believe could have given little extra time at some places.

We had a very fun and relaxed experience with this tour. Although the trip was rushed in some parts, we were given plenty of time to explore places of interest, like the National Mall and Glen Watkins. We would not have covered this many places in three days, so it was a plus for us. Our tour guide was Jason and he was very personable. It was just unfortunate that we had to leave Niagara early because one of our fellow passengers had to catch a flight that same day. We would love it if we had more time to spend at Niagara. Also, the long trips could've been more comfortable if the TV worked in the bus.

Tour guide thanks to Lenni and Jack. Excellent service. Accommodation : good and clean hotels. Transportation: Professional. Thanks Mr. Davis from Texas you are a gentleman. Itinerary: Always on time and tour guides are very responsible to have all people in the bus, in each stop before departure. Only one recommendation, get your food one stop before getting to Niagara Falls. That food court does not have good restaurants. Very expensive and the food is horrible.

I recommend this tour!
