  • I really enjoyed this trip. It was my friend who booked this tour for the two of us, but as I enjoyed it very much I wanted to write this review myself. We saw a lot in two days. I particularly enjoyed the Adventure Aquarium, Longwood Gardens, and the Ice sculptures, very beautiful. Would strongly recommend this tour to others. Thank you our guide, Jerry Lin, he did a such a good job.
