    It was a very long day 8hrs there and 8 hours back with about 3 hours in niagara falls,we had a 20 minute break after 4 hours then stopped at the same place on the way back.The coach had a toilet on board,the drivers where friendly the tour guide was also friendly 😀 their was a couple of issues thst could make the trip better in our opinion. Sometimes we couldn't hear the guide at the back of the coach also we got split up at the lifts to the boat ,we could see the guide at the bottom waiting for us but we had no tickets to get down to her ,but the man in the booth was very understanding i think it would be better to wait for all the group.We really enjoyed the trip these are only comments to make the trip better 😀

    Very good tour around other New York boroughs. Our guide was Jorge who was very friendly and so well informed with a huge amount of stats and historical information about every borough. The tour iteslf was very interesting considering it included quite a bit of time riding in the coach. Highlights (for me) included Harlem, Williamsburg, Malba, Dumbo and Coney Island. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting see beyond Manhattan.

    We did the Washington day trip from New York. Overall the tour was very well run. It's a 4 hour bus ride from New York to Washington with one brief (15-20 minute) stop about half way at a motorway services.

    We got to see all the big landmarks - Arlington National Cemetry (including JFK's grave, the National Mall (including Lincoln Memorial and Washington Momument), Senate and the White House. Also included just over an hour at the museum of Natural History. This was the one part I didn't like as was not interested in it. Surely they could have found something more appropriate to the tour (such as something related to their political history) or just spent a bit longer at each site? Seemed this was only included as it is a free museum.

    The tour guide was very good and provided appropriate commentary and made sure everyone kept to schedule.

    Fantastic tour from Times Square, NYC, to Washington DC. We had Steve as our guide, very informative and definitely deserves credit for pointing out places of interest, and history knowledge.

    Definitely would recommend!

    Rachel and Michel were great hosts very friendly and knowledgeable. Each vineyard had a nice atmosphere and beautiful scenery. The wine portions were small so no one should get drunk.

    My favorite experience on this tour was visiting Lincoln Memorial. It is an iconic monument to all mankind. Alicia , our tour guide , did a good job of keeping this large group of tourists punctual to continue visiting other sites longer.

    Agency operates different tours on weekdays with different start and end time. Ours started at 7 am and ended 6 Am next day.
    Pro: Focused on Niagara, included Mist tour and walking tour; Fun and helpful guides Richard and Brian
    Cons: Driver of the bus are not able to communicate basic instructions in English(can use boards/printouts)
    Guide did not educate to carry the Poncho with us when rains were regular phenomenon. Half the group ended up drenched during walking tour

    This day trip was perfect for me. We saw all the main historical things to see in Boston, learned a lot, and didn’t feel rushed. Millie is an excellent driver and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip for anyone who only has a short amount of time to spend in Boston. I just hope Millie remembers to email me the photo she took of the group!

    This tour was well worth the investment. Ronald was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about NY as we travelled around. He was accommodating, friendly and we were able to see so much in 6 hours. Highly Recommend!!!
