Posted by: Catarina on 2015-08-16

The tour was enjoyable. The pick-up location was chaotic and we missed the first visit because of this. Should be better organized. Last day in NYC is very rushed and chaotic. Rest of the trip was good, hotels were very good. But it is mostly a Chinese speaking tour, so not the best for English speakers as you end up losing time in different locations for the tour guide to come and translate the information for you.
