Our tour guide Andy Day was awesome and has concern for his passengers needs. Accommodations were great except some need elevators for older passengers and their luggages

We have enjoyed the trip with no hassle whatsoever. Many thanks to Joe Lin who was very polite, very co-operative and looked after everyone on the bus. Joe has made our trip a really memorable trip. I would highly recommend the company to give promotion to Joe. The bus driver Richard was very good and helped us guide as required.
Very nice tour!!! The schedule is very tight and hectic as the itinerary includes too many places. our tour guide Angie was very good and friendly.we would like to go with Angie again :)Please take tour make stops where we can get Indian food so we can come again with more friends and family.
I joined 5 day tour from New york. My flight from Torento to New York got cancelled and No flight till next day however we decided to use ground transportation . Tour guide Jin Lu is very helpful. he suggest to join tour next day near time square. Tour is pretty fun but very hectic but in 5 day they covered almost all places.Thanks you jin Lu.
I took the 5 day tour with my friend. It was really well planned and organized. The tour guide, Jojo, was really good and explained the details really well. Hotels are good and worth the money spent. Tour starts early around 6:30AM daily so it's a bit hectic, but you are able to cover most of the attractions without much queue or waiting time. Overall, it was a really good experience and worth the money spent.
It was really well organized. The hotels provided were good, neat, clean, and worth for the money we paid. Mr. Jason drove very safely and tour guides Mr. Shaon and Mr. Avin explained about the history and things well. They ensured we visited all places as per schedule and also ensured we did not miss visiting any places on their schedule. Though we were bit tired by the end, the whole package was worth the money we paid and we are very satisfied.
I was with my brother from Australia and a friend from Canada. We took the tour October 1-5, 2013 and our tour guide Sharon was very helpful and accommodating. She's very organized and friendly too. I would like to thank her for making this tour a memorable one. Job well done!
I got this tour for my parents as I was not able to join them for the tour and I couldn't find any other tour during that time.I had several apprehensions as tour guide was chinese dominated but it turned out to be a very well managed tour.No waiting and 5 star hotel accommodation even though i booked standard hotel.Their tour guide Angel was really helpful and my parents enjoyed the tour.It was a bit hectic getting up early to leave everyday at 7.00AM but it worth it.Good value for money.
The tour was exactly what we wanted as far as what we saw. The hotels were very good and transportation in the big cities better than I had expected. The tour guides were well informed but my only complaint is that the guides spoke excessively more Chinese than English in describing or explaining things. I felt that I wasn't being told all that I should be. I understand that there were more Chinese speakers than English but even so, there should have been equal time in each language and preferably English first. This would be the only thing that I would criticize on the tour.
I booked this trip for my parents in law (Age 62,54) and they found it good. The tour covers all the places mentioned in the website. Its slightly hectic as the tour starts from 6:00 AM and the time given to see each place would be limited. The tour guide was good. he was explaining in both Chinese (detailed) and English (Summary). Their tours were conducted by L&L tours and they seems to be big. Hotels provided were fine. They were asked to pay the tip($6/head) only at the end of the trip and the driver helped people to offload/load bags into the bus. The seating arrangement was rotated on a daily basis. Visits to all the crowded places were made early in the morning to avoid standing in queue. (They faced no queue for Empire state bldg/Niagara Maid of the Mist) . Overall its good for people who want to cover many places in less time and money and dont mind having 5 hectic days.
It was a great tour. This is the second time I have taken the same tour with different family members. TakeTours had made a lot of improvements and this time, the tour was more enjoyable than before. Adequate time was given for meals and also to look around the attractions. Will definitely recommend.
Very nice tour!!! The schedule is very tight and hectic as the itinerary includes too many places. If you enjoy seeing many places on the run then this is ideal. The hotels provided were great. Tour guide is good and helpful. The trip was very enjoyable.
Very nice tour!!! Kudos to Gotobus and taketours. If you have parent visiting US and want to cover east coast then this is the one. Right from airport drop pickup to drop off, the service was amazing. The schedule will be very tight and for every attraction we will have less time but it is OKay as we need to cover a lot. The hotels provided were very decent and they gave the ones which has free breakfast. Tour guide is good. They speak mostly in Chinese but explains in English too. The trip was very comfortable and enjoyable. Only thing is we have to stick to the time and get back to the bus in the given time. For lunch and dinner they stop mostly at Chinese Restaurants which we are not comfortable at all. Better to carry some food for the trip. Hope this review helps...
The tour was good. The schedule was a bit hectic but it was required in-order to visit all the places.
The guide Joyce Kwong was great and made the trip a memorable one....
Would certainly book Gotobus again for further trips :)
Hi...I took this 5 days tour. Firstly would like to thank Gotobus for such an wonderful arrangement they have starting from pickup from EWR airport to drop off at BUF airport. I would like to thank our tour guide Karen for a wonderful guide. This tour is perfect for all who wanted to cover East course in such a short time. We took the night tour also where we have seen the wonderful Night life at "times Square" ...wooo what a great night view it was. I would say all the hotels where we stayed was excellent. The tour is bit tight on 1st 2 days at NY and Washinton DC but as we go ahead we enjoyed the days. The NY cruise ride was just amazing.... Niagara falls lighting ...and Mid of the mist...no one can explain it...u have to be there to enjoy it. Just go for this trip ...its just amazing. Totally worthful trip and I fully recommend this to anyone who wants to finish East course with 5 days... Great job Gotobus....
I have booked this 5 days east coast trip for my in laws and they were pretty satisfied with the accommodation and the travel arrangements.
The drawbacks noticed were
1. The guide was talking Chinese 85% of the time and it was conveyed to him and not much use since 80% of the travelers in the bus were from China.
2. They had to rush to see most of the places, where the guide will give an accurate time to come back to the bus including the sight seeing and the food. This time was not at all sufficient to see the places( e.g interpid museum) and come back after lunch.
3. And, if you have not come back in the bus at the specified time, the bus wont wait for you. This is ok, because of the time restrictions and the 5 days converage. But, the guide should collect the phone number of all the travelers and do a check on each seat before they start the bus( This was not done most of time). So be there on time specified by guide.
Overall the trip was good, but was bit hectic.
A very enjoyable trip!!!
Right from pickup from Airport, hotels, tickets and stops, places and information and till drop to airport everything was organized perfectly and the tour turned out to be much more enjoyable, interesting and happy experience than I expected. kudos to Bryant the guide and Wang the driver! They did an amazing job! I traveled alone but still had a great time with the people who traveled with me in the bus.
I can summarize it in one word "excellent". We were picked up from NY airport a couple of hours late but then onwards until end of the tour it was really well organised, hotels provided were good, neat and clean and worth for the money we pay. They ensured we visited all places as per schedule, though we were bit tired by the end, the tour guide ensured we did not miss to visit any places on their schedule, the whole package was worth for the money we paid. If we intend to visit New York again definitely we will use this tour package again and would recommend this tour package to tourists who are on their first visit visit to these places.
