I recently took this tour. I took multiple tours in the past as well. Ken Fung was my tour guide this time. I must say he is one of the best tour guide I ever had. he was very professional and descriptive. I would loke to give him 10/10. This tour is one of the best tour of east coast. Though my timing was little off, I missed the fall color but as a whole this trip is definitely memorable one.

I took this trip over the Labor Day weekend (Aug 29- Sep 1, 2019) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide Sunny and driver Arthur did a great job, they are a very good team. Sunny is knowledgeable about all the places visited and very attentive throughout the four-day trip. He's very funny and even gave quiz about the places visited on our way back. I highly recommend this trip.
