Our tour guide, Jason, was wonderful and coordinated the tour very well. The tour felt little rushed sometimes as you can imagine with so many things to cover each day.
One suggestion is to add some kind of speaker system in the bus to be able to hear the guide announcements clearly across the bus.
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your rating with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

This tour is worth for the price.
Before going to this tour i read all reviews (mostly -ve review) so that I was prepare for worst.
but I really wants to share that this tour is really worth.
'Feeman' was our tour Guide, He is really very nice guy, I learn lot of things from him, about how to manager different culture people.
He politely handles everyone.
Thanks for all
Airport pickup arrangements: Good. For us, this tour was conducted by Mayi tours with "MARIO" as the tour guide. Please check before you take this tour if it is operated by Mayi tours esp. with Mario guide-it was a horrifying experience with him for many of us. He would scream at youngsters and seniors alike and pressure us into paying even for tours that are listed as optional by TakeTours. He also wanted all of us in the bus to pay 800+USD upfront (some of us were students) and would scream at us if we disagreed.At the spots, he was only clicking pictures instead of giving us any information about the destination. Another very important thing he missed was to be considerate about food taste and make food stops that has options even for vegetarians. Accommodation, itinerary and driving was good. I was recommended this tour by my friends and I would recommend it too but, please do not accept if it is Mayi tours operated.
The Tour Guides are good and able to accommodate different thing, in case of some of the attractions are closed in the last minute. They were glad to accept money transfer instead of carrying cash for all the tickets and tips.
One thing to improve on is the hotels in NJ, we have stayed in 2 different hotels, both are bad in terms are how they maintained. Phone was not working and many other things. Had to go to the front desk and give them a list of things (now you know, how bad they are). One hotel they didn't care to do anything, the other one - at least they have sent some one to fix. After a whole day of travel, i would expect to get good rest instead of dealing with these issues. 2 other hotels are good.
The trip was really nice. The hotels were all very good and the planning was perfect. We got to see a lot of sites in a very small span of time. Th tourguides Angie was really helpful and accomodated all our requests.
