This trip was worth our money, with very well planned itinerary. The driver/guide Eddie Z. was wonderful, knowledgeable, punctual and friendly. He explained the historical aspects of the tour sites vividly. We enjoyed the tour very much and definitely recommend it to others.
Bus Tours seems to have the best, liveliest tour guides. Since they aren't driving, they can focus their attention on talking about history or giving tips about sightseeing in D.C. I was particularly impressed with one guide who described her favorite painting at the National Gallery of Art in such lavish detail . Before holiday This tour is thorough, dense and comfortable, an ideal option for those who don't mind forking out a bit more to avoid tedious lines and waiting.
Excellent Trip! We travel with our parents and it was great experience to Washington DC. Tour Guide plan trip so nicely. I would definatly reco. to you all. Thanks for making our first Washington DC. Trip is wonderful. Great place with great planner
We had a good time during our 2-Day tour. Our tour Guide/Driver Danny was wonderful and knew his way well around the New York City. Danny is fluent in both English and Chinese. we got the Mercedes Sprinter Van for tour. The ride was comfortable and we felt like a private tour!
Mandatory Service fee is too high($20/person), still we would recommend this tour to friends and family.
The tour guide was worst! he never took us to the places guiding/explaining all places of visit..he used to simply tell us next place n time to return which was again insufficient..the worst of its kind..I suggest don't go to Amish Village, Phili, just visit DC and that to White house & Aeronautical museum.
Trip was awsome. Guide/Driver AJ is superb in all areas (driving skill,communication,kind,knowledge). Best 2 day tour we can have it and covered all places mentioned in Itinerary. Seat arrangement in bus can be pre-planned as we got not much comfort seat(got last row with 4 people). If seat arrangement done based on number of people occupying it will be good.As going as couple we cannot sit in different places.
The trip was great. Our Tour guide MARS was Awesome. He went out of his ways to make us comfortable and be re- assured. He showed us a good restaurant to eat. We stayed at Sheraton (Surprising).The bus was very comfortable, Benz, the intineray was good. I
I booked this tour for my parents-in- law, who were visting us from India.I was a little worried initially since they would be travelling on their own.But thanks to Take Tours they had a wonderful trip.The tour guide was very helpful.On the day of the tour when they could not reach the pick up point in DC due to road closure.The tour guide was very helpful and picked them from their location.They were very kind and considerate for elderly people.
We had a great time during our 2-Day New York, Philadelphia and Amish Village Tour. Our tour guide Danny was wonderful and knew his way well around the city. (Plus point - Danny is fluent in both English and Mandarin :) )
The tour ended up with only 2 families total of 7 people, so we rode the Mercedes Sprinter Van. The ride was comfy and we felt like a private tour!
Yes, we would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family, and remember to ask for Danny!
This was our third tour with Take Tours. Our trip begins with a visit to the Amish Farm and house at Lancaster. We came to know about 300 years old Amish community, their life style, occupations etc. It was a new experience for us. We then moved to Philadelphia, the original capital of USA. We visited cracked Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the history of American independence was created by the founding fathers of the USA. Our next stop was at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, New York. This place is ideal for taking photos with our dearest actors. After that we had an experience of vibrant night life of New York at Rockefeller Centre, Times Square and Hamilton Park. Our first day tour ended here and we were transferred to a good hotel for our night stay at New Jersey.
Next day we visited Trinity Church, New York Stock Exchange, Charging Bull and the Empire State Building observation deck, where from we got a birdâ€™s eye view of the city. We availed the Liberty cruise at one oâ€™clock. Our guide on the deck made us acquainted with the important and historical structures and buildings including world famous Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn bridge etc., at New York and New Jersey. It was a wonderful journey.
We should like to mention that Danny, our tour guide and driver had given us a wonderful service with his smiling face and has given us enough time at the touring spots. Our vehicle was also comfortable. All together it was a wonderful tour.
The 2 day trip to PA & NY was very good. The tour guide Johnny was very adjustable and also explained the high level historic details of the locations we visited. It was a fast and short trip but all top attractions were covered. No time was wasted although one suggestion is to include Brooklyn & Manhattan bridges and World Trade Center views in NY night tour. I would recommend this tour.
We found the company to be very flexible and accomodating to our needs and our tour guide Oguz was very knowledgeable , helpful and entertaining. We will definitely use take tours again to do quick trips and make hotel bookings.
Our Trip to New York via Lancaster was fun packed. Although wet and sticky on day one thru Amish Country and New York city, the second day brought forth some sunshine allowing us to make up for the initial jitteriness of the trip. Thanks to out tour guide OGUD, this guy is just amazing !!! An ambitious young gentleman ,with immense knowledge of just about everything, extra cool guy who made the whole trip so much more enlightening.He is an exceptional driver, you can rest assured that you are in the right hands on the road. Vehicle was comforatble( Mercedes Benz van), Stay was great( Sheraton, New Jersey) Thanks to our co passengers, two lovely couples from Australia, and a mom and daughter from China, we had a fun packed trip together. Ogud guided us right to the best street food in New York- the HALAL GUYS.. a must try! Overall the three of us had a great trip .. highly recommend take tours, with thumbs up and five stars to OGUD!!!
It was a very satisfactory trip. The guide (Danny) was so nice and helpful. He explained about all attractions in detail. We were given enough time to cover all places and take pictures :). The Amish country side tour was so good and we got to taste their awesome pretzels.
This was a great tour. The tour guide John, was able to cover all the places mentioned in the itinerary with some expected time crunches. He was fun filled and informational. The hotel provided was also great. He also had stopped at places where there were good options for food. A few negatives - 1. We were a small group and hence we were arranged a compact-van, that had less room for leg-space. If you are a larger group, you might get better options otherwise (a bus)
2. You have to keep up to the schedule, and hence you might miss out on few moments if the places are crowded, hence plan your trip accordingly.
This tour guided by Jason was excellent. All promised land marks were covered with sufficient time and Jason took particular interest to explain the historical relevance of each place we visited. Since travelers were only 4 of us, tour management provided a neat and clean SUV which converted the trip into a complete family type outing , which gave a complete different and wonderful perspective.. thanks Jason and thank you TakeTours, you guys are doing a wonderful job.
I will certainly suggest to others to have fun with these properly scheduled tour packages.
Our 2 day trip from Washington to New York via Amish country was super. Our tour guides, Jason and Danny, had made this trip comfortable and fun. In a short amount of time we were taken to all land marks promised and ample time was given to tour the area. When we requested extra service in New York to ride beast it was honored. We would recommend this to our friends and family. Based on this experience, we are thinking of our next tour with this company.
