Just returned from this 4 days tour. Our tour leader Sunny did a wonderful job of guiding and entertaining us all the way. You get to meet people who become like your family. The sights were spectacular of course especially Luray Cavern and Great Smoky Mountains. We had enough time to enjoy each site and never felt rushed. Big thumbs up and thanks to our motorcoach operator Raymond for keeping us safe. It was a memorable trip.
