Overall this tour was a good experience especially for a wheelchair person like me. Guide Jack and Driver Andy were so helpful and supportive. I had a good time because of them. Some of the places mentioned in the itinerary were not covered like Jet Boat Ride. Hotels were also good to stay. It turned better than my expectations according to the reviews.

I am so glad join this tour from take tours with my family. We all enjoyed the tour, especially the Jet boat in Niagara Falls. It was an amazing adventure. Our tour guide, Sophia Liu, is very nice and she is very familiar to the places we visited. The tour was well organized. And we had enough time in all the attractions. The hotels were great. We lived in Crowne Plaza and holiday inn, much better than I expected. The whole trip was great but the weather was so cold and I plan to book a tour next summer from take tours!

it was a good trip. the tour guide took special attention for those who didn't speak Mandarin. Finding vegetarian restaurants was a little hard but our tour guide Li took us to centers where both non veg and veg was available. the explanation about the places was excellent and i and my family thoroughly enjoyed the trip. hotels were excellent. we booked deluxe so that was a good decision.

Tour was awesome. Edison Sun was my tour guide. I would like to give him some credits for being the funniest, yet informative tour guide. He made sure that the trip is worth taking again. Thanks to TakeTours, I could effectively cover many cities in a very short period of time.

I recommend this tour!

Posted by: Deepa on 2014-10-17

Itinerary was good and also the hotels. My personal opinion was that a few places could be avoided and instead adding something else for e.g. Potomac River cruise, Niagara Falls Adventure Movie, Thundering Water Cultural Show could be avoided and instead adding Hershey's Chocolate Factory, Cave of the Wind, and also a few more tourist places in New York City. However, we enjoyed the tour. We also got an awesome guide, Yue Ma (Joe Ma). He is super cool with a smiley face. He had good knowledge about places. Bus always stops at Chinese restaurants and many vegetarian eaters will have problems. We experienced such issues in our previous trip also. But our guide always ensured that we get vegetarian food. He suggested us places to go and eat. Our trip was unforgettable because of Joe Ma. Thank you. I would also like to add that if you can provide more commentary in English, it would be great.

For a family who wants to visit multiple places and needs no hassle of renting/ driving a car, hotel etc., this is the best option. Especially when you are travelling with old family members. Everything is timed perfectly well. Started on time, visited the places, and ended on time. Most of the times were ample enough to see the places, sometimes you will have to run to make sure that you don't miss out on the attraction. If I go with elderly members in my family, I would definitely go with them....
