Hello, On your calculation screen we saw that with one room we can choose 4 adults. Can it be possible to stay with 4 people in these hotels rooms of tour? Are the rooms big enough? Do the rooms have 4 beds? Can we price like that?
by Halit on 2016-07-08
Hi Halit, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately each room can only hold 4 people; any additional passenger beyond 4 will be in another room. Thus, the prices can only work like that. For each room there will be 2 king or queen-sized beds, and the rooms should be large enough.

  • Our 4-day tour was an amazing experience but sometimes it was a bit rushed. this tour is for those people who wish to visit many locations in a limited time frame. Our tour guide, Cecilia made the tour better. Cecilia was charming, knowledgeable, entertaining, and caring. She helped and answered people's questions. She made sure people had a fun time. Driver Alexa was also very friendly and drove the bus smoothly. The bus ride was long but she did a good job driving. I will recommend this tour for those people who wish to visit many locations in a limited time frame.

  • Our 4 days DC, Corning, Watkins glen, Lancaster (Amish farms), Niagara, thousand islands, etc tour was a bit rushing and tiring, but totally worth it!!! Just follow our professional guide Emily Huangs arrangements, and you won't worry about anything at all!!! She’s amazing - knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and caring!!! Our driver Richard was pretty amazing too!!! Thank you so much, both. Just a couple of things about the trip could be better: (#1) the hotel for the 2nd and 3rd nights should be of the same standard as 1st night (#2) stop at an area where there are other options for places to eat besides just the buffet
