I sent my elderly parents on this tour few days back. They mentioned the accommodation, the travel, the places they were shown all were very very good. Tour guide Philip was knowledgeable but hurried things throughout. Looks like this tour is ideal for young folks but I wish they make it good for all the age-group.

We planned for a quick trip, which covers almost all major spots in DC-Niagra-Boston-NYC. This trip was a prefect choice for us. It's definitely value for money and very well organized. The tour guide Tony was very friendly and well-versed with the places he was taking us to. What I really liked about the trip is, everything has been done very transparently and whatever was promised, was delivered without any fuss. Even the tip amount was defined and was collected at the end of the trip. Memorial Day weekend is generally very crowded, at all the major spots. But, we were impressed by the way they managed the entire touring group. Only thing, that I thought could be looked into is the air-conditioning inside the buses. The bus, in which we were transferred from Boston to NYC, was just perfect. In the other two, the air was getting cold throughout the bus, evenly. But, all in all, it was a very well organized trip and we had lot of fun.
