“Surpassed all expectations”

“Good paced tour of the East Coast”
- NSW, Australia Oct 2015

Good paced tour of the East Coast. Hotels were very good and the tour guide was extremely helpful. Good overall tour of the cities for the time allocated. Fall was a nice time to visit as the foliage was changing colour. Would recommend spending extra time in New York by yourself as the one day of the tour in New York no where near covered enough. (GJ.

The destinations that we went to were well thought out and there was plenty of time and the various sights. The individual guides were great too. The coach was extremely comfortable and our driver was fantastic. ...read more
