Its value for money tour. The tour guide is very kind and if you dont understand they explain again. Usually its in 2 languages English and Chinese.Mostly people don't like to go with any tour because they think they will not get sufficient time to see the place but this is not true with TakeTours. You get enough time to enjoy each place.

I recommend this tour!

We were very fortunate to have Chloe as a tour guide! She did a great job, very patient, always smiling, very informative about the places we were visiting, friendly, and professional. I did enjoy the places we had visited and my son, for the first time, he enjoyed the trip! Unfortunately we were unable to see the Cherry Blossoms because it passed. Maybe next year.

I recommend this tour!

The trip was very good, everything went well. The bus was comfortable, the guide tour was very friendly, always available to help us. The hotel was really nice and the breakfast also, just not enough time to have it. I did many times with this agency and I recommend them.

It's an attractive tour considering how much it did cost, but really fast. Me and my friends decided not to take the optional tours (Amish farm, cruise...) And it was fine, we had this time to relax around the places the group were doing something so it worth it. Besides, the hotel not having breakfast (but previously mentioned by our tour guide) we enjoyed the place. I asked for a room for me and 2 other friends, and it worked exactly like we planned. Besides the tour is really fast, it's too much places for a short time. I would love to spend the day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but I could not find a tour only for Philly. But besides everything, it was all worth it, me and my friends had fun, and enjoyed the trip... The tour guide (Mo) was really nice...

I recommend this tour!

Tour is attractive as per price. Don't expect much in 2 days. Itinerary shows multiple places but not much to see. Overall good for person traveled to USA for less time and wants to visit more places in less time / price.

I recommend this tour!

I had been on this 2 day trip from New York to Washington DC. Tour is kind of okay, not that great as it seems to be from the itinerary. First day we saw Princeton University and in Philadelphia (nothing to see there) we had lunch. Then we went to an Amish House and Farm which was something new and interesting.The Amish dinner is not got at all, especially for vegetarians. We wish we could have ordered Dominos Pizza after reaching the hotel. The next day, we saw attractions in Washington DC. There is cruise trip ($25) which is very boring and don't opt for that if you have already seen New York cruises. Like other trips, we spent most of our time in the bus only. All in all, this is an average tour.
