We learned much about the places we visited as well as the U.S. history. The entire 4 days was fun and relaxing. We hope to travel with Ken again in the future!

  • First of all, tour was great adventure. Our tour guy Ken was friendly and he explained everything clearly and patiently. I want to mention one thing , during driving time bathroom was closed on the bus even though they stopped at service area every 3 hours. I would love to inform to company that bathroom should be open all the time due to emergency, pregnant women and medical issues. It should be understandable those situations. I recommend to everyone to take this tour. It was enjoyable time. I really got a great time.
