Re: 1-Day Albany Tulip Festival May 12, 2018 Searching tour, first found 2-day, then only found 1-day, both are available. Email said 8:00 am at 75 Christie, text said 7:30 at 90 Bowery, go with latest. We had 2 vans, prefer 30-seat bus. State Museum - 1 hour, 15 minutes okay. Capitol - tour not available weekends/during festival. Tulip Fest - Wish we could change to a rain date, 1 hour 45 minutes okay. Executive Mansion - can you drive by, it's behind the State Museum. Subways including J line are at Canal & Broadway, rider requested drop-off. Museum & fest were lovely, Take Tours always goes beauty spots, and gives good information. Thank you, I appreciate this service, there is no other.

I recommend this tour!
