    2017-07-16
  • I took a 4-day trip with TakeTours from New York to Washington(also visited Philadelphia, Princeton and an amish village in Pennsylvania on the way). It was a great trip and we visited all the places mentioned in the itinerary. Allen Pan was our tour guide and he did an excellent job. Though almost everyone on the trip was from China or some other Chinese speaking country, he was explaining everything in English for the select few people who don't understand Chinese. The tour price was reasonable. The only thing that could be improved was to make the tours a little bit slower so that people can take good photos properly and don't feel tired as a log at the end of each day. On the whole, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this touring company to anybody wanting to tour a new place for the first time.
