Eddie Yu, our tour guide was the best! He made things smooth and easy. Due to traffic, the bus came late on the first day, but he made up for it and we did not miss any spot. Infact he arranged for best hotels like Holiday inn and Sheraton. We were highly impressed with the itinerary and the way so many things were managed in so less time !! But as mentioned on the first day its important to be litle disciplined and i agree wuth that. I highly recommend taketours for anyone like us who loves to explore more in less time. And special thanks to Eddy Yu for making this trip so memorable for us!

We had fun filled 4 days trip. We boarded the bus at Philadelphia and were the last ones to get into the bus. We never noticed any option to choose the seats while booking the tour, and when we got in, we got the last seat next to the loo. Our complete right view was blocked. It was very disappointing. But next day they changed the bus and we got better seats. So when you book the tour, make sure you get proper seats. The guide Jake Yang was very sweet and friendly. He guided us properly at all the places. Tour was packed. At few places, we wished we had a little more time, but it had to be like that to finish so many attractions in a short time. We never had to walk or stand in any queue. Bus stopped right in front of the attractions and all the tickets were arranged earlier. Hotels that we stayed were very nice, and got complimentary breakfast too. There were N number of loo breaks and we could easily manage with our little one. We made Chinese and some Spanish friends, watched movies during journey and had a gala time. One last thing was, there was no drop off to Philadelphia. We had to get down at NY. It would have been nice if TakeTours can add it.
