Excellent trip. Great guide and driver. Hotel in NYC was shabby. Would expect more there. Rooms very dated and no facilities such as tea coffee. Shower over bath but bath unusable (no plug). Mould in bathrooms. Beds small. Other hotels were excellent

Mr David Benz

It met all expectations with the locations and tour guide/driver. The only minor downsides were: the Ground Transportation Link Service which was slow (waited for an hour after a long flight in a JFK waiting area with many other passengers) and secondly that at least breakfast could be included with the hotels, otherwise excellent
