I took this tour along with my parents from 20-Jun-19 to 23-Jun-19. The tour itinerary was good and enjoyable including important places in Washington DC and Niagara falls. Bus driver was excellent with good driving throughout the journey. However I would like to provide details about tour guides Aiden Yu & Harris Chen. Harris was not having much information on the questions asked to him and he always directed towards Aiden. Aiden was very rude, non-cooperative, did arguments, pushed elderly and used bad words to tourists. They changed the pick-up location a night before the tour and sent message with pick-up time 7 AM time instead of 9 AM, however tour bus came to pick-up location at 9:30 AM. Tourists had to wait from 6:45 AM to 9:30 AM. Also Aiden was asking for charges for the attractions which were already included in our tour (i.e. Niagara Night illumination) and when said no, he didn’t allow us and some other tourists to board the bus. Hence, I would urge TakeTours to take appropriate actions about the same.

Tomé el tour desde New York y lo finalice en Buffalo, después de la visita a Niagara, Lou el guí­a fue muy amable y nos ayudó en todo lo necesario para nuestra acomodación y reconección hacia Boston, muy buen tour, lo recomiendo ampliamente...lo único es que me hubiera gustado wifi en el bus, música y un poco más de tiempo en Niagara, por lo demás una experiencia maravillosa, todo muy puntual ahhh, y más tiempo para las comidas...gracias Lou...

My family really enjoyed the trip specially the tour guide Lee tried to entertain us when we were on the way back to New York because that was long trip. If you come to this tour, you should come with Lee and try the Jet boat.

Our tour guide Amber was lovely. The bus was pretty good although asking people not to use the toilet is one thing, but having the door locked is another! The tour itself was good, and Amber was pretty knowledgeable. It was a shame that the same people were late at nearly every stop, and I really did feel for Amber in having to deal with their apparent lack of respect for her, or anyone else on the trip really. It should be noted that this is obviously highly promoted to Asian people and I was the only Caucasian on the trip, which felt a little awkward, particularly when 2/3 did not speak English. Everyone was was very polite (apart from the family that were continuously late), and one Chinese couple took a liking to me, and it was interesting trying to converse when neither speaks the other language, but they were absolutely lovely. All in all a pretty good tour.

We took this tour on April 24th, 2017. James the tour guide was absolutely fantastic. So considerate and such a patient young man, ready to listen to anyone's problems. I wish that the rest room on the bus was available. You have to do something about that. Certain trips were a bit too long. All in all a great tour at a very reasonable price. Highly recommed it.
