  1. Trip of a lifetime

    This tour was an amazing experience for my daughter and I and her classmates. We learned about many beautiful, interesting places. Everything was well organized and went so smoothly that we would have never been able to see so many places or have as many experiences as we did on our own. Our tour guide was a wonderful mix of knowledge and enthusiasm. Thank you so much!

  2. Fabulous Memories

    Our tour of Washington DC, Gettysburg, and NYC was a jam-packed week full of fabulous memories. As a step-mom traveling with two other adults and our teenage sons, I appreciated every aspect of this amazing trip: Tour guide, bus driver, our local coordinator, hotels, food, and especially the sights. It's a week we will never forget and always treasure!

  4. Fun Experience

    It was an up and at em' lets go experience. Some things felt rushed which I understand, they want you to see as much as you can. I'm glad I decided to go and would probably do it again if given the chance. Laura is an amazing guide, full of knowledge. For what you pay, the food could be a little better when it came to dinner. I wasn't fond of the lets pile 5 tour groups into a restaurant and all try to eat 15 minutes apart.

  8. Off the Charts!

    Amazing tour guide who truly loves kids and makes this history tour "off the charts!" There was nothing my child could find that "sucked." My child came home exhausted but enthusiastic about travel, our country and the trip.

  10. Fantastic Tour!

    From the very first day of the tour, I was amazed at all of the sights and sounds of the east coast that we were able to fit into one tour! Our Tour Guide, Liz, was the BEST! The tour was very organized, and when suggestions were given, and time allowed, we were able to add to the experience. Liz is very knowledgeable of the US history for the locations that we visited, including details that I hadn't heard before on 2 previous tours on my own and with another tour group. Liz also made the tour fun for all of us along the way. The students that were traveling with us had a great experience, too. I would highly recommend this tour!
