    My husband and I recently took a four day tour with your company from New York to Washington, Philadelphia and Niagara falls. We departed New York on Saturday 19th September 2009. We thoroughly enjoyed the four days and particulary enjoyed the two days spent with your guide "Ellie" (I am not sure of the spelling) and driver Janine. Ellie was very helpful, very informative and great company. He catered to everyone's needs and was a particularly nice person. His knowledge was outstanding on many subjects. I feel he represents your company in the highest standards and wanted to pass on to you how much we enjoyed the two days with him. Overall everything over the four days was very well organised, both guides were very well informed and next time we visit the U.S. we will certainly book with you again.
