Listen, this trip is worth Every Single Penny Spent!!! Our tour guide (Moises) was excellent in every way! He had a Great sense of humor and was very knowledgable. He gave us info about each state that we visited/drove through. We started with New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland then Washington...I think that's the correct order. Either way, the information passed on was very memorable and exciting at the same time. I learned A LOT on this tour. It was very well planned out and organized. It seems rushed but that's the point to be able to take everything all in. I was able to capture tons of photos at each destination.

The ride was great. Since there were a small group of each language, Spanish, English and German were housed in one bus. Our German-speaking companion also did the English tour in one. Our companion was fun and very nice. With regard to the long journey time, we had a little concern at first, but since there was always information about the cities and the surrounding area on the way, the time passed pretty quickly. There is always enough time for toilet and food throughout the trip. Before, the schedule is of course tight and there is not too much time at the individual locations, but we were aware of this on a day tour with a total of 8-9 hours of driving and was implemented well by the organizer. All in all, we were very satisfied and can recommend the trip to others.

We were the only German-speaking couple in the group and therefore had a guide to ourselves. He did a great job and provided us with information about the USA the whole trip and was able to answer all of our questions so that they were really quick. In Washington you stop at all the famous sights. Our guide also accompanied us to the memorials and explained the most important things to us here as well. He had a huge background. You have enough time to take a photo at the individual sights and get a good overview of the city. Can only recommend the excursion.
