    It was a great day from beginning to end and the trip exceeded my expectations. It is a long way but the coach was comfortable and our guide provided just the right amount of information on the way and it was fascinating to see how much the scenery changed enroute. Once we got to Washington it was all very smooth and we were really happy with the time spent at each place and the thoughtful explanations and background information provided. Would definitely recommend this trip to others. We got so much more out of the day than we would have done if we tried to do it ourselves, not least because of the distances between the monuments. Before we went we had some concerns about the time travelling but that turned out to be an attraction in itself - and it gave our legs a rest as it came in the middle of a hectic few days exploring NYC.

    The itinerary was good and the guide Okai was perfect. We left NYC close to 7 am and were back at 9pm. Though the 9 hour bus trip is a bit tiring but the impressions definitely got over it. The only thing Id like to improve is to have a bit more free time there explore the city.

    Listen, this trip is worth Every Single Penny Spent!!! Our tour guide (Moises) was excellent in every way! He had a Great sense of humor and was very knowledgable. He gave us info about each state that we visited/drove through. We started with New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland then Washington...I think that's the correct order. Either way, the information passed on was very memorable and exciting at the same time. I learned A LOT on this tour. It was very well planned out and organized. It seems rushed but that's the point to be able to take everything all in. I was able to capture tons of photos at each destination.
