Very happy with the tour overall. Tour guide and driver were very pleasant and accommodating. It was great that the meals were planned but the same type of restaurant for dinner and the next days lunch. Something different would be good to change it up a little. Was also disappointed that the museum was cancelled in Philadelphia. Due to low attendance. Was looking forward to visiting it.

I recommend this tour!

This tour takes you to all the places in the planned itinerary. We enjoyed the trip but it was very hectic! Lots of walking and rushing. The only disappointment was when we need a transfer from Flushing to Chinatown where a total lack of organization or order and chaos.
