This tour was excellent. Our guide Mani was the most helpful and gentile person ever! He did the best in order to get us good accommodations and his only concern was for us to have fun. Honestly, when I booked this tour I didn´t think it was going to be so good, since the price is so cheap. We visited so many places in such short time, and I loved every minute of it. Worth it 100%!

I took this tour with my dad and wife. This was my third time with this company and it was a very satisfying experience. Emily is a very professional, knowledgeable and humorous guide. Our room in the Day Inn wasn't good though; they had just installed the new set of rooms and there were just too many problems with it. I strongly recommend the visit to Niagara Falls and Watkins Glen State Park.

My family and friends had a wonderful tour with lots of memories. Our guide, Simon, was very patient and knowledgeable. He had good knowledge of the attractions/places. Two night stay at hotels were very comfortable. The buffet on both days didn't work for us, but our guide was so cooperative so we were given an option to not to go with buffet (we found place that works for us nearby). Overall the tour was good and was really worth. FULL FIVE STARS are dedicated to TOUR GUIDE SIMON and BUS driver.

This awesome experience was a result of our tour guide Manis' dedication. He kept it up to the mark, interesting, as well as informative. Accommodation and food was decent enough, which is value for the money. Mani, our guide arranged Maid of the mist on Memorial Day weekend with his control and strong sense of time that many other groups couldn't manage. Cordial, extremely polite Mani called and/or replied my text in less than 30 min with his utmost professionalism. Both me and my wife are happy with this tour experience and would recommend anyone to take this tour (Try to take Mani as your tour guide, none knows Upstate NY better than him). Jami & Seidy

Overall it was an enjoyable and memorable trip. Our guide Justin Chen was excellent. Accommodation was way beyond expectation. Only drawback was non-availability of Microwaves or Kettle in the Room. Covered all the places as per itenary. Looking forward for more tours.
