We went on a 4 days tour in May 2019 covering Washington DC, Amish farm in Lancaster Pennsylvania, Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen, Niagara in depth and Thousand Islands. It was a very well organized tour and not exhausting. The hotel accommodations and the food stops were good. The highlights of the tour were Amish Farm, Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen and Niagara. Since this was a Niagara in depth tour, we were taken to Goat Island which borders USA and Canada and we we were close to Horseshoe Falls. We would like to make special mention of Jake Yang, our tour guide. Jake was very amicable, friendly, accommodating and provided all information in English and Chinese. Our coach driver was also very skilful in his driving. We would recommend this tour because it covers travel and accommodation at reasonable prices and is highly suitable especially for those people who come from abroad and don't drive themselves.

Kenny Yin was simply fantastic. Very knowledgeable, answered all my questions and was patient with everyone on the tour. Outstanding work Kenny! Thank you for a memorable trip. Only issue was the hotel accommodations on day 2. If I do another trip, I will not take the buffet dinners either. The quality of food leaves much to be desired.
