I really enjoyed the trip. I booked it because I wanted to show my mom Niagara Falls. She enjoyed it as well.

Tour was fairly enjoyable, and we saw most of the advertised attractions. The two hotels, Sheraton in Niagara Falls, and Hilton Woburn in Boston were a good standard. However, there were some downsides: when we arrived at the pickup at The Bowery, it was raining, and we were asked to drag our luggage two city blocks to the coach. The guide gave us some confusing information about the itinerary. Watkins Glen National Park was advertised but we did not see it.

Overall the trip was amazing and it's a perfect way to cover a lot of places in a short span of time. the tour guides were friendly and helpful. There were only 2 drawbacks in the entire trip....one being there were no plug points in the bus that made it very difficult to use the phone and the second is that we had to change the buses too often in a 3 day trip and caused a bit of inconvenience as we had to pick up our luggage and shift again and again. But apart from that, the trip was enjoyable and a success.

Everything was excellent and terrific except for the bus. The bus did not acquire plug ins which was unfortunate because I had to be aware of my battery percentage every time I took a series of pictures. Except for that everything was magnificent.

This is definitely a good way to see a lot of things in a short period of time. Our first tour bus was owned by a limo company and was very spacious and clean. There were even outlets on some of the walls to plug electronics into. Since a large majority of the group was Chinese, our tour guide (Avri) would give her instructions in both English and Chinese before we reached our destinations. She also called me once I reached the bus pickup location to make sure I found the right bus. The second leg of our trip was a little less fun than the first. After our first day we changed buses and tour guides. Our second bus was much smaller and more cramped than the first bus. There was much less leg room for my 6'1" companion and I felt very bad for her having to sit so cramped for the 8 hour drive to Boston. Also, about 2 hours into the drive, someone used the on-bus bathroom and had an incredibly foul smelling bathroom visit which caused the whole bus to reek terribly. Understandably sometimes these things cannot be helped, however we were stopping every 2-3 hours at rest stops and it would have been better if the person had alerted the tour guide to their needs. The tour guide tried to cover the smell with a stack of car-fresheners, but it really didn't help much. This was probably the worst part of the trip overall since we spent the majority of our time on this bus. Our second tour guide (Zoe) was very friendly as well, however there were a few times when she would only wait for half the bus to empty before walking off. One time we lost our group entirely and were wandering aimlessly around Harvard until we saw someone we recognized. The second time we literally had to run to catch the group so we could find out where we were eating our lobster dinner. It would have been less stressful if she had waited for everyone to gather before walking off. My one wish for this trip would have been more time to actually enjoy the places we were visiting. I felt like we were being rushed along from place to place and I was constantly checking my watch to make sure we weren't going to miss the bus. There were also a large number of other tours at the locations so there were lines for everything, which cut into our "free time" quite a bit. While I definitely enjoyed myself, I don't think this type of tour is something I'll do again in the future. I felt like I only got to "see" the sights and had very little time to actually enjoy them. I'd recommend this for anyone that wants to do and see a lot in a short period of time, but not for those that want to really immerse themselves in a location. There just isn't enough time for that.

I recommend this tour!

The trip started with a snag, the bus had motor problem, another bus was sent and it was more clean and comfortable. Our tour guide, Vivian, was very accommodating and she was determined to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible. The itinerary had 2 long distance rides from New York to Niagara Falls and from Niagara Falls to Boston. I think there should be some sites in between to break up the long ride. Other than that, everything was wonderful and I had a wonderful time!

I recommend this tour!

I joined this tour during 23-25 April 2013. As Niagara Falls is a very long 7 hours car journey from NYC, I thought easier to join a tour instead. And the tour exceeded my expectations, considering the accommodation and itinerary executed as scheduled. Special mention to tour guide Jing Lin who was professional, humorous and helpful to all onboard the tour, making a long 7 hours journey actually enjoyable.

Nice trip, very responsible tour guide. Corning museum was interesting, enough free time at Niagara Falls, and Maid of Mist was fun. Not much to see at Harvard and MIT though, just took some pictures.
