My family had a really great time for our trip in the USA by Mayi tour. Eddie was our guide, he was very energetic with can-do attitude and customer focus. In the well-organised programme tour, he was able to manged every activity in time so that we could enjoy spending our time exploring sightseeings with interesting information. Moreover, he also supported us with fantastic service mind to ensure our pleasure for the whole trip. We were very happy and definitely choose Mayi tour for our trip the next time!!
This is our first east coast trip and first time taking a group tour. We covered everything in the itinerary though in some places it is little bit of rush. The accommodations for all the days was excellent and most of places we stayed are holiday inn, Ramada, Sheraton etc.. Tour Guide Wayne is very good and he ensures everyone is comfortable. Transportation is good except 1 day we used different vehicle but it was changes next day to better one.
Overall I would recommend this tour for all ages and value for money.

We booked this tour mainly for our mom because this is her last visit to America. Itâ€™s been her dream to visit Niagara Falls. We are Americans from the west coast and could have driven ourselves to these places. But we wanted an in-depth explanation by a tour guide. We even called in advance to ask specifically to be placed with a knowledgeable one. We were assured that we would be. On the trip, we found out that the guide had only been working for 8 months, which should not be a problem if the company provided a script or training. The information was very sparse and limited to the names of places. Not much was said about the history nor was there any interesting/fun facts/stories. I understand that the guide tried her best so Iâ€™m not upset with her but with the company for false assurances.
Places that were free to the public were charged an entry fee by the company yet there was no real explanation. We have nothing against our tour guide herself. She is very young and she did a great job ensuring the trip was timely and well organized. However, we talked to the others on the tour and they were also very disappointed at the lack of finesse/geographical and historical information of the sites visited. We thought renting a car would be expensive. However, once you calculate the tours that weâ€™re free to the public but charged about $25-50 per person, we would have saved more money overall and even learnt more at the sites because we would have spent more time there. I will not be recommending this 7 day tour to friends. Again I want to reiterate that we got along very well with our tour guide who was very sweet to us but our disappointment is mainly with the companyâ€™s lack of training, for charging us a fee at free public venues without much guide explanation, and for even charging our 4 year old at places where it should be free. Also I highly doubt if the previous glowing reviews are true. The most embarrassing thing is how the reputation that merchandise or services from China is often not trustworthy and is in fact below expectations is proven true again. Very very sad for us.
Overall it was great tour. The tour Guide was really nice only I have concerned with my last day stay in Ramada at New York. Room was not god there was bad smell and when I raise complain to change my room no one helped me neither hotel staff nor our tour guys. During Boston to New York I request my Guide that I donâ€™t want Yale University please refund my money for Yale University but he did not and told me now itâ€™s too late even there was no ticket system so if he want then he could refund my money but he did not.
We are highly impressed and appreciated your kind service during the tour. Tour guide
Viola is too good ,had very good communication to all tour menber she is really dedicated for time, showing tour location, managing for the food , giving regular break in journey and lot more...
I will recommend to my friends over India and Qatar to take this tour.
I am very satisfied with the 7-day itinerary, the explanation of the tour guide and the arrangement of the itinerary. In particular, the Freedom Trail, which takes us past Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House and more. It let me know more about Boston, although I am already coming to the US for the second time.
What surprised me the most in this trip is that we walk along pathways at the Moon Island and Goat Island. At night, see the majesty of Niagara Falls from nearby Goat Island as the roaring waters are brilliantly illuminated against the night sky. Of course, this is inseparable from the arrangement of tour guides and drivers. The guide Layla QIAO is very professional and caring. Very worth a visit
Double Decker City Bus Tours, I was very surprised, sitting on the open-air bus, breathing free air, very comfortable. The guide Layla Qiao explained very professionally, the driver is also very good, I am very satisfied
Tourists from different cultures made up our group, but we respect and got along well with each other. It was a wonderful journey, TG organized our group well.Statue of Liberty Cruise was one of the attractions we like,you can see Manhattan Bridge that link Manhattan with Brooklyn, the scenery on both sides of Manhattan was really beautiful, the skyscrapers have its special point.
The tour guide has been really nice in explaining and showing places around. Agnes has been very helpful in providing us tips suggestions for the tour as well as providing informaton on most places,Iam enjoying it so far,thank you
Great tour! The tour guide, Cloris, really made this tour enjoyable. She was very friendly, energetic and knowledgeable of each of the sites we visited. She accommodated our requests and went out of her way to make sure everyone enjoyed their vacation. These tours are only as good as your tour guide so if given the option, we recommend asking for Cloris as your tour guide
the drive was excellent. He helped my parents a lot. when we were back we found that we had lost the wallet. the tour guide and drive helped me a lot. Now I get my wallet back. thanks them. the tour guide is NIKI
I had an amazing trip.The entire package was well organized and covered the main hotspots. The guide Ray was very particular about punctuality, he was approachable and had great knowledge about all the places and their history. He managed the entire trip very smoothly. The hotels were all star rated. Overall I had a great experience. Wish to be part of such trips even in the future.
The tour is well-planned and lets you get a feel of the cities you are visiting. The sites to visit are selected cleverly. They make you cover all the major attractions within a small span of time but the tour is well-designed enough to not be tiring.
Our tour guide, Cloris Huang was always calm, easy to talk to, efficient in management. She maintained a positive environment and did not show any bias. She also seemed enthusiastic about sharing information about the locations with people, and was able to communicate all the information well in English.
All in all, enjoyed the trip a lot! It was a truly memorable experience.
Fantastic Experience. The tour guide Maggie was very cordial and easy to coordinate when we opted out of the optional packages. I would highly recommend this tour package to everyone, especially for family trips!
Really really appreciate tour guide Ray Yim for his wide knowledge, very fluent English speaking as well as considerate service for us. He showed a professional ability when encountered emergency, gave us a lot comfort. Got proud of Ray and his team!
Sammy, our tour guide was very informative and give us a lot of details about all the places we visited. He tried to help whenever he could, and made special request for us vegetarians at one of the French restaurant.
This trip as a whole feels very good, tour guide SAMMY worked seriously, and is responsible and enthusiastic with detailed explanation and reasonable arrangement,which add a lot of points to the trip. Although the bus problem was encountered on the way, it was dealt with in a timely manner and was not greatly affected.
Our family enjoyed very much this well organized tour. Sometime we have to wake up so early morning but this is the way we can visit many spots on time. It's better to bring some foods and water since it's little bit hard to find them in so me places. Our tour guide, Wayne, was great.
Sammy,our tour guide was very informative and gave us a lot of details about all the places we visited.However,Meal stops were't the best for vegetables.He tried to help whenever he could.He made special request for us at one of the french restaurant. thanks
our tour guide, Jenny, a really nice woman, can speak both Chinese and English fluently. As a foreigner, I don't know too much about American history. But She helps us to understand American culture and history during this trip
It's pretty good exprience to participate in this trip. They pick up us at the airport and It's really convenient for us when we first arrived in New York. We visited many attractions in the shortest time and it's pretty classic travel rout e
Great experience especially with our very accommodating tour guide Mr. Wilson Kuang. Highly recommend to visit numerous places in such a short period of time. Can not wait to share my experience with my friends and family
Well planned for good coverage of the main east coast attractions. Professional tour conductor ALAN has knowledge beyond his scope and will go the extra mile for his guests throughout the trip. Highly recommend this tour for people who have limited time and want to make the best of their time on the east coast.
Sammy(tour person) is the best. He explained every single detail about the tour and he gave us a time to take pictures. I would like to have in my next tour same person. He is the best. Thanks for everything and I will hope to take another t our with tour for fun.
Very well organized tour nicely executed by the driver and the Guide (Mr. Alan). Driver was very cool & helpful in managing the baggage. Hotels were clean and comfortable. Itinerary was good and well planned giving you excellent coverage. Tour guide (Alan) is very knowledgeable and a nice person too. Truly, we enjoyed the whole trip.
The tour I took is just excellent. The tour guide, Sophia Liu JONATHAN HO, is very nice. He worked very hard. When I asked about attractions, price, hotel, he always tried to give me detailed information. i am satisfied with him service and enjoy the tour. I will recommend to my friends.
I just finished my east coast tour in American. I want to thanks to the tour guide Wayne. He is knowledgeable and helpful. It looks like the tour is a big family. we made some friends with other travelers. If be given another chance. I would like to travel with those guys and Wayne.
One of the best trips I ever had. Everything was planned perfectly. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. Sammy is a really great tour guide. He was friendly and led us to all the important spots in the cities. He was so patient as well. Overall we had a great trip and it was a memorable vacation
It was excellently organised package, especially the transportation and accommodation, apart from the coverage of places of significance! Before travel we were apprehensive of coverage in a short time but it was so systematic that one could get a total glimpse and knowledge of each and every location and place of significance.
Once you've got a great tour guide, you've got a satisfied trip already. Our tour guide Mark is really a friendly and professional person. We are so lucky to have him with the trip. Because of his wise time arrangements, we've been given ch ance to visit all these sightseeing, without waiting a second. He is patient and passionate about his job, never get tired to repeat these important info reminders.
It's really benefit. The whole tour Itinerary was smooth. The attractions picked up by the tour agency are commendable! What surprised me was the recommendation. The room with two beds is big enough and has a bathtub.
i booked this tour for my parents,the guide is really gentle to take care my parents,guide speaking bilingual languagechinese and English, normally they stop at food plaza for lunch or dinner,they have buffet or Americans food or some food chains nearby the spot they stop.they visited mostly famous city in east coast,like new york, Washington dc, Niagara falls,i like in-depth tour and Amish, that's a nice experience
i booked 7days east coast tour starting from new york,my favorite parts is Amish tour,we were visit Amish house and took a country side tour to see a really organic lifestyle, that's unbelievable that they can keep the lifestyle from 17 century, amazing experience
best tour I have been is good price. Hotel is nice. We visited most famous spot like statue of liberty, intrepid which is a really huge battle ship,we went Niagara falls to took in-depth tour, that's a nice place to see lake Ontario and gun show
I took this tour last summer, I highly recommend this tour,itinerary is tight but we can visit most interesting place in 7days especially Amish village, that's really amazing to see those people still keep the traditional lifestyle from 17 century
One of the best trips I ever had. Everything was planned perfectly. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. The tour guide service us the whole trip and we are friends now. I have invited him back to my country.
Sammy is well organized, good at explaining and introducing these history and background behind those views. And appropriate jokes and touching stories are plus to the trips. Thanks Sammy for his professional services. Hopefully next time we can travel with him again! Mani you are the best!
Love the good view especially the night view of the Niagara Fall. amazing. the day we are in the Niagara fall hotel is not far from the Fall. we walked about 10 mints to enjoy the night view
and take a lot of pictures. Fantastic.
Just had an awesome east coast tour with Ray Yim of Mayi tours. Ray is a intelligent and well organized. He speaks both English and Mandarin fluently and is very professional . He is the best tour guide we have ever met.
I was the only American on the tour and I had so much fun with the Chinese people who were on it. The Chinese people were very nice to me and seemed very interested in the tour. Ray was our tour guide, he was fantastic. He helped me communicate with the families and that was very special.
One of the best trips I ever had. Everything was planned perfectly. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. Ken is a really great tour guide. He was friendly and led us to all the important spots in the cities. He was so patient as well. Overall we had a great trip and it was a memorable vacation.
It was an awesome tour. Special thanks to our tour guide (Jacky Lin) who is incredibly awesome from start to finish. Very kind hearted guy, patient and well organize. From setting timings for meeting time to giving historic background of all the attractions, having it in 2 different languages (English & Chinese) is not an easy task - so job well done
i highly recommended this tour,the price is reasonable and they took us visit so many femous city in east coast and guide is very nice,we were visit dc,new york city,we took the Niagara in-depth tour and my favorite is jet boat, that's really exciting experience.
We really enjoyed the tour! It was worth every penny because we were able to cover so much in such a sort amount of time. Best things about the tour are the hotels which are surprisingly great considering the package cost and the pacing of the tour wherein we didn't feel that we are always rushing. Kudos to our guide Kun who is very helpful! Only downside is that the bus is very bumpy and tends to be uncomfortable during long drive.
I've got a comfy for 7 Day East Coast The coach got some Aircon problem, no worry it was replaced with another one. Thanks for dropping off close to Grand St, s o I can continue with Subway to Manhattan at Times Square for a few days. Good luck.
Touched with customer services. Even though we came first time to New York from India , we are well received without any hurdle. Optimum time management. Good value for money and quite comfortable hotel stay. May be little problem for vege tarian people . However sandwich option is available. Tourist need to keep some cash handy.
Great experience especially with our very accommodating tour guide Mr. SAMMY CHAN. Highly recommend to visit numerous places in such a short period of time. Can't wait to try next the West Coast Tour...
I spent some time with my family, everything was perfect, our guide MARIO was very friendly and all our bus companions were well behaved. They complied with everything stipulated, the hotels very good and in general everything was perfect.
Well planned for good coverage of the main east coast attractions. Professional tour conductor Alan has knowledge beyond his scope and will go the extra mile for his guests throughout the trip. Highly recommend this tour for people who have limited time and want to make the best of their time on the east coast.
Our 7 Days US East Coast Tour was very good. We enjoyed every bit of it. Our Tour Guide Tana was really good and helpful. Quality of restaurants were good. we enjoyed the food. Overall a good experience.
The tourist in the tour are mostly Chinese with few Indians.
Meal: The meal location chosen were mostly Chinese or American with some vegetarian options around. Breakfast is not complimentary at the accommodations.
Guide: Our guide was fluent in English and Chinese, and would always ensure to speak in both languages. He ensured that we stick to the schedule.
Itinerary: I found the itinerary to be good, since it covers most of the important spots, and tries to maximize spots in given time. Although 7 hours in 2 days are lost mostly in travelling.
Kenny our tour guide was outstanding by his pprofessionalism, broaden knowledge,kindness plus a sense of humour thus making everybody happy. The accommodation was good, 1 bus was old, too noisy at the back due to the engine. The bus armchair has bugs that bite and hurt!!!
Fantastic coordination and communication in organizing the tour.
our tour guide MR Bert Pan is a professional and wonderful person and he is good at English and was communicating with both Chinese language and English language fluently.
we recommend this tour Everything was perfect except the Bus which need more comfortable seats.
Thank you for the past few days, it's been such an amazing tour. you have such good knowledge about the places we have visited, which has made the tour to be very interesting and fun experience for us. other than that, you have also been a very fun, caring and friendly tour guide. It was nice to have you as out tour leader. Hope to see you again in the future!
Jerry is a nice handsome guide who always try to be in time and responsible for all of us, he does a good job by telling what we visited .he always takes care of us as his clients. provide us drinks and always care of our meal. he is a good tour guide
this comment is from U3. Adam is a responsible tour guide. he has taken care of us in our 6 day US east coast rip. every time we have questions, problems and issues during our trip, he always help us to solve in quickly and timely manner. We are fortunate to have Adam to be our tour guide and we appreciate that he did to make our trip wonderful
We had excellent trip. Thanks to our tour guide Bert Pan. He made sure we covered all the attraction as promised. He explained very well about each location. We enjoyed that he made sure we are not lost while every where we go. Thank you Bert. You did a great job!
Thank you for offering us insights and knowledge about the east coast. Wang was an excellent tour guide. He was very friendly and easy to talk to and was genuinely passionate about the tour. Mr Richard (the driver)is very nice too.
Bert is very responsible. He arranged the whole trip very reasonably and he can professionally explain a lot about the history of the planes that he guide us to visit. Thanks to Bert we enjoyed a wonderful trip together. Hope next time we can meet again. I will surely recommend my friends and relatives to participate in this tour if there is chance.
there are lots of places that should be visited and one week is not enough. two additional days with some increases on prices is suggested. Both driver and tour guide are helpful. since most of visitors are Asian. I would suggest ti accommodate them with Asian food with a bit strong taste. I see most of them didn't quite like the food since these food don't have many taste. Perhaps tour agency is convened with non Asian tourist who are not used to Asian food, thus I suggest that they provide that copy of ID so tour agency can provide what they might could eat.
It was a memorable tour thanks to the tour guide, Sean He. He was kind, informative, and pleasant. He always referred us as "friends". He also hinted to me where the best spot on the Maid of the Mist was. He gave us estimated time of arrival every time we moved. It made the whole long boring transportation better and bearable.
The bus drivers (do not know their names) were also nice. They were always smiling even after long tiresome driving. They would gladly help load and unload the luggage.
The best part of the tour is definitely the Niagara Falls. I would highly recommend to go there. The fall itself is awesome. Also, the Native American dance show is quite interesting. However, if one wants to enjoy Niagara completely and fully, such as the night view, rather take the 2-day Niagara tour. It actually goes the same to all regions because the tour travels a long road from a region to a region so it does not give you enough for an in-depth tour. Still, you can visit important iconic attractions in each region.
Other recommended places during the tour are the Metropolitan Museum in New York City and the Atlantic City.
The inns/hotels were comfortable and clean. However, due to lowering some costs, they were an hour away from the cities and the attractions. So, the night tour is impossible nor it is easy to get food at night. (There are some delivery places. But if you want some real restaurant, you need take a cab.)
Also, the tour is targeted for Chinese population. If one expects a racially diverse tour or a tour with most tourists speaking American English, this is not your thing. However, the tour guide speaks fluent English so there won't be any trouble enjoying your tour. He explains everything in both Chinese and English.
Again many thanks to tour guide Sean He and the drivers. It was fun and memorable. I enjoyed seeing and knowing things in the East Coast. I was able to find places I would to love to return one day.
The tour guide, Joe Ma, was helpful and helped with everything he could. Smiles and friendly behavior were on daily schedule. If you ask me, I would recommend this tour. The hotels and the bus were comfortable and clean. We have thoroughly enjoyed the 7 days New East Coast Deluxe Tour with TakeTours.
Tour Guide: Evan Huang was great. He was very professional and very organized. I like the way he would give us estimates of the times to make sure people are not late, inform us of the next day's itinerary, and give comprehensive English translations even if most of the participants are Chinese-speaking. I also appreciated the fact that even though we didn't join the optional tours, he still treated us equally with the other customers.
Accommodation: it would have been better if all the hotels had free breakfast. Almost all hotels were very far from the tour sites, thus resulting in having to wake up early due to longer travel times. For New York, our hotel was at Edison, New Jersey! It was almost an hour away from Manhattan.
Transportation: bus was a bit old and the seat numbers were faded or labelled incorrectly.
Itinerary: many optional tours that were unnecessary. Some were even more expensive than the price at the site itself.
Suggestion #1: we were not given a detailed itinerary that includes hotel confirmations. and we were only informed of the contact number of the person fetching us the day before our tour starts. This is very difficult especially if we don't have time to check our emails beforehand.
Suggestion #2: we took the self-guided NYC tour. It would have been better if the city tour came before our self-guided tour so we can go to places we didn't get to go during the city tour. During the City tour, we weren't able to visit Wall St., because a film was being shot during that time.
The tour was good and they provided good service both with the tour guide and the driver. I give the applause for Sam, the tour guide. He know well what he was dealing with. He can manage the tour very well and all the timing is almost punctual. Would recommend this tour for the introductory first visit for East Coast.
