Many hours by bus (about 7 hours to Niagara + the other hours to Washington and Philadelphia). Apart from that, you can visit a bit of everything, obviously almost in a hurry, given the amount of things to see, but all quite interesting. We first did Philadelphia and Washington the first 2 days with a group and a guide and then we changed buses, group and guide and left for Niagara Falls. The guides are fairly homologated, amusing but they make the same jokes and they don't seem really spontaneous. One was quite prepared and also told interesting curiosities, while another told the bare essentials. On one thing they were the same, on the tip! They say it is voluntary but they do become almost mandatory from what they tell. They suggest $ 20 a head a day but we honestly gave a lot less, as the tour isn't cheap. They could save themselves the stop at the mall for 90 minutes we could see more cities.

despite the rather long journeys, the trip and its organization were to my liking. In this regard I have already delivered my driving satisfaction form, at the end of the trip with a single observation regarding the excessive brevity of the lunch breaks but this did not represent a big problem !! Thanks

Our tour started first in Washington and we were scared to start on day 3, but little by little we saw everything super organized, the hotels very well, comfortable, we spent the 4 days without problem and the excellent tours.
