It was a good tour covering the prominent areas in 6 days. The travel was comfortable and the accommodation was excellent, though it was bit far from the City Areas. The Night Tour of NewYork was made in the same bus and was charging additional of $35 per person, which was bit unfair.Also, the accommodation provided was in the outskirts from the City Area and we don't have any chance to explore by our own. The Amish Farm could be avoided, instead provide more time in Niagara area. The Tour Guide could explain the areas in more elaborate manner.
Our tour guide, Evan, and bus driver, Jim, are awesome. Evan is very knowledge and experienced. Jim is very accommodating and provided excellent service. The hotels are nice and clean. The itinerary of the trip posted on TakeTours.com seems to be out of date. The hotels of the tour were not near city of attractions. They are located in between cities near the highway. Some of the attractions and activities listed on the itinerary were changed or removed from the tours.
Overall, the trip was good. Improvements can be made in the areas of itinerary so that more time time is allotted to sightseeing. Certain cities can be eliminated so that more time is available in Washington DC and Philadelphia. Tours guides should be given a thorough training so that they interact with the guests better. Overall the trip was good.
We took the 6 day Eastern American tour and we enjoyed our tour. We are from India. Our tour guide, Evan, was wonderful, patient, professional, and caring. Because we are vegetarian, every time we stopped for meal, he tried his best to tell us where we could have our meal and ask us every time if we got something to eat. We had a great trip. Even if it took a little bit more time on the bus, it was still worth taking it as a tour. I will recommend my friends to join the tour, and our guide already found some Indian restaurant for our people already. It will get better.
We are from Brazil and living in Chicago . I signed up the 6 days eastern American tour from this agency ! We have to say we had a wonderful trip, especially our tour guide Evan was amazing! We took the American West Coast tour with same agency before and the guide was really terrible and rude. We were actually a little worried at the bargaining of this tour however it turned out to a fantastic trip. Nice hotel, nice city, and excellent guide. He made our trip more interesting and he took care of everyone in our bus. We even missed a little part of our Niagara trip because the bus broke down, and our guide tried his best to comfort everyone, and brought us to The Falls eventually because we may miss it. We really appreciated The Falls in all. We strongly recommend this tour and our tour guide. It was fun!
Tour guide was fully on time and got along with the tourists and explained everything.
Accommodation was good but only two hotels provided complimentary breakfast (all should provide)
Bus seats were not comfortable, should be maintained regularly.
Itinerary was good but not impressive. More time should be given in Washington DC and Philadelphia. The island of Statue of Liberty was visit was cut short for the Amish Farm. The cruise on Potoamac can be avoided. The "Cave of the Winds" is included (time spent in Niagara should be more) New York night tour is not in Double Decker bus. Amount charged on the same bus is not acceptable.
The driver of the bus was friendly and the drive was very smooth and comfortable. The explanation in English should be more specific.
All together the tour was enjoyable, except the remarks appended above.
I will surely recommend this tour to my friends.
We absolutely enjoyed our trip. This tour was well organized and we had a wonderful tour guide who was named Evan Xiong. We are from Panama, and this was not our first time signed up with a Chinese travel agency, however this was our first time to have such a nice tour guide and bus tour. He was very patient and professional, taking care of everyone in his bus and solved some problem we had, making our trip go smoothly. I really appreciated it. We strongly recommended people to join this tour!
I took this 6 day tour. At the beginning I was worried as it's my first trip, but it came up as a great experience with a really nice guide and the safest driver. Our guide was really nice, and a caring person. His explanations were so good and simple, and he knew we were vegetarian, so after every lunch and dinner stops, he personally checked if we found our food or not. At times he was tough to some passengers but he was doing his job. He cared for other's time too. I am planning another trip next year with my family.
I sent my father and mother in law to this trip. Earlier I was not sure about the quality of service and accommodation facilities as I never heard of this earlier, but some how I took the risk and booked the tour. And believe me, the experience was awesome. Everything was too good. My parents in law are highly satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend TakeTours to my other friends.
The tour guide was a wonderful person, he was so flexible, however I would say that it would have been even better had he chosen such eateries which would comply to the needs of everyone. It was a wonderful experience for an international student like me, visiting with his parents, and this trip was worth a lifetime.
I just took this tour with my parents and in-laws from Chicago, Illinois. I was scared before as I had not seen many reviews before about the tour. But the tour actually exceeded my expectations.
The itinerary was covered as promised. The hotel and facilities were good...guide was committed....explained facts about places....nice ..
Only improvement would be to have seat numbers for the bus instead of first come first serve... I recommend this tour....
First four days tour guide was fine (he is a good guy, Weng) but last two days tour guide was changed and she was terrible. My other friends who joined the tour, share same things. So I am not satisfied because of the last two days. But it is different experience for me and I had a chance to see important places such as New York, DC and Niagara Falls.
