    This tour was a lot of fun, very economical and it covers a pretty good itinerary. Tim, our tour guide was very informative, considerate and helpful. He made sure everyone enjoyed. Louis, our driver, drove very comfortably and was kind. With respect to accommodation, the room for the first night hotel Buffalo Inn wasn't that great. But the second night hotel, Quality Inn was quite decent. In all, it was a very enjoyable and comfortable experience!! I would recommend taking this tour, its pretty good for less price!

    This is an economy tour. Cheap, low budget. For what you spend, you get a lot. First night hotel, was Quality inn and it was ok. We upgraded and second night stayed at Sheraton and it was wonderful. You will see a lot. Action packed. Be prepared to listen to it all in Chinese too. Mostly guests are from China. Bus was low budget and it was smelly. Told us not to use the restroom in bus as it will stink up the bus!! And they will not have time to clean it up. Bus driver was nice but did miss several stop signs. Jake was the guide and seemed knowledgeable of all sites. Overall, tour was ok. Lower budget,economy tour!

    I recommend this tour!

    What a brilliant tour I've just finished. From The first moment I met our tour guide Jeffery till the last goodbye it was faultless. Jeffery was so kind and pleasant at all tunes. He had very English and had of knowledge about all the different places we visited. We didn’t opt for all the excursions which was fine and were not pushed to do so either. The hotels were brilliant and included breakfast although on the first morning we were unable to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast as started our day before the breakfast service. The Washington DC tour was a little disappointing though as we were not able to get close to the White house due to it being heavily guarded, and also I found there was not enough time to actually visit US Congress and the spy museum. Overall though the tour guide Jeffery was brilliant, the bus was great, driver kept us safe, hotels were spot on. My husband , 2 kids (age 11 and 9) and myself would tour with take tours again.
