  • A well planned trip without much tiredness and anxiety, its more like a personal guided vacation. Enough time for each attraction as well in-between relaxations. Busch Garden and Chesapeake Bay is the highlight of this tour as they are very beautiful and occupying. A must go during Christmas & New year vacation since Christmas town is soaked in full of festivities. Don't miss out the theatrical shows in Busch garden. Overall a very nice trip. Don't miss your umbrella, it will be handy in case of uncertain rain. Last but not the least, thanks to Mark and Simon (our tour guide), especially to Mark since he was providing some extra information about the passing by states on our way to destination.
