Tour Review

05 Aug 2011 - 17 Aug 2011

Really enjoyed this tour, we went to so many interesting places and saw a lot inside two weeks. There wasn't a huge amount of optionals because quite a lot was included although you do get free days in cities such as Washington, Toronto and Montreal to do your own thing which is nice if you like to party hard and need a day to chill out. Boston was amazing, definitely my favourite part of the tour, our tour guide managed to get us tickets to a Red Sox game which was an awesome experience. Only thing I would say is that maybe we could have been given more time in certain parts such as the Amish county and certain lunch stops where we had to wolf down our food for fear of being late for the bus.

Also note that Canada is a bit more expensive than the States for most things so make sure you have plenty of Canadian dollars for that part of the tour and certain ATMs in Canada don't take Mastercard but take Visa and vice versa which I found a bit odd.

All in all I definitely would recommend the tour to anyone - the two weeks just flew in and I made a lot of new friends from it.
