    My friend and I had this tour last December 27, 2015 to January 1, 2016. We really enjoyed the tour. We liked our tour guide June Lin. She is nice and she explained explained/translated everything in English. All the hotels that we stayed in were nice and clean. Itinerary would be perfect and better if they gave us more time in Philadelphia. We had only limited tim, and we were not able to see/enter the Liberty Bell Museum. Overall, I would still recommend this tour.

    My friend and I had this tour from December 27, 2015 to January 1, 2016. We enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, June Lin, was very nice and she was good. Everything was translated/explained in English. All the hotels that we stayed were are very nice and clean. The itinerary was great except that we should have given more time or an extra hour to explore Philadelphia. It was so fast that we were not able to go inside the Liberty Bell Museum and see the real Liberty Bell. Overall, we are happy with this tour.
