The itinerary covered a lot of areas and considering there is only 2 days, it ensured it covered the major attractions.
Sean, our guide was superb, well behaved, courteous, informative and well organized. He arranged for the food and stay very well without us having to wait at all.
I would definitely recommend this trek.
My parents and I went on DC tour a week ago(from Jan 31 to Feb 1), and the tour was perfect thanks to our tour guide, Shelley. I would like to give her 10+ points out of 10. Shelley, our tour guide did a great job, she is very kind, patient and very polite. She explained details about places and schedule with good English. The tour was well organized by her and perfect, my family enjoyed it very much.
Most of our groups are Chinese this time, but she cared the small group of foreigner as well. We felt very comfortable from her.
I had taken another tour on taketour, the Niagara Falls and Toront. My family was so disappointed for the guide. She was so push and hurry, she did not care their customers at all. She did her own business every time.
According to my two tour guide experiences, I highly appreciate Shelley as a great guide. I definitely recommend this tour if the tour guide is Shelley. The tour is generally nice, but Shelly made this tour great.Thanks again to tour guide Shelley who was so amazing.
The Washington DC tour was very nice. In spite of closure of museums we had a good time. Tour guide and service was very nice.
The location we stayed didn't have breakfast. It would be nice to have that included.
Awesome experience , very professional and make you feel felicitated . The tour guide James Huang take care of you all time , explains every details and reminds you for timings. The hotel they provided was clean and equipped with all amineties with complimentary breakfast. We had great time kuddos to James will definitely refer friends and will go again with other destinations.
I would like to start off stating that the trip was an amazing experience. My boyfriend has never been to DC or Baltimore and he loved every moment of it. It was our first time taking a bus tour to another state and we learned so much of the rich history of all states (Washington and Philadelphia). When we were planning our trip, we didn't expect to see so many historic venues and museums. This trip exceeded our expectations and the hotel was a great touch. Take tours made our trip a massive success and I recommend friends and family to go traveling with Take Tours.
I recommend this tour, Rachel the tour guide is very nice and patience, everything was explain properly.
Actually were coming back next year. hope rachel is still the tour guide. thank you very much your the best.
A lovely two day excursion with tour guide James answer bus driver Eric. They were very organised and really made the journey worthwhile. The attractions were organised avoiding rush hour so we never experienced any queues, traffic or long waits. Would love to travel with TakeTours again.
We visited many famous places durning these two days. I really love the tour inside the U.S. Capitol which was epic and well-planned. Need said "thank you" again to my tour guide Rachel, and Driver Alex. We have a wonderful experience. Definitely recommend to my friends and coworker.
I was with the guide Blake. She was a very good guide, very nice, she even take us in photo when we ask her !
The tour was very good, i really appreciate !
For the dinner and the lunch of the 2nd day, our guide propose us a restaurant (chinese buffet) with a very good price and it was very good !
I highly recommend this tour ! The visit was very nice !
I had planned this trip just before 3 days with my wife. We are recently married and we are pretty happy with the trip and accommodation provided by team. The tour guide Emily is very friendly and cool and explained everything about the places we have visited. Thanks team and hope eagerly waiting to plan another trip with you guys. I recommend this trip for sure for the newly couple in the Winter season.:) Thanks
My uncle and aunt got Washing D.C. Tour .
Tour guide Jeff , he was very organized guide during the trip and we did get communication by text message . .
Guide Jeff speaks English very well ,
Even short time tour , but it was very excellent tour .
Because of Jeff !!!馃憦馃憦
Next time my hus and I will go Washington DC tour with Jeff. 馃槏
My tour guide was Ivy. She is great, always remind people about respect other people and be on time. The schedule of the tour on 1st day is to visit Princeton University, Philadelphia and Amish bus tour. The time in Philly was quite short. Only 1 hour including lunch time. We didn't even have time to look around Independent hall and Liberty Bell.
We stayed one night at Metro point Hotel. The hotel is quite old but otherwise great. I didn't hear any noise from other rooms.
2nd day, we started early to visit the White House and Capitol/Congress hall which were great experience. The time at Museum of Space was 1 hour is quite short. The older schedule had us 2-3 hours free time. There is so much to do in National mall area. We didn't even have time to get close to the monument.
It should be other things to accommodate ppl who don't want to join "optional" activities. So they can join up after those "options" are done. Esp in DC which we can uber to meet up easily. (if addresses are given)
All in all, I still recommend this tour to other people who want short trip and haven't been to DC before.
I strongly recommend this two days trip to Washington D.C.. I was on this trip with my son on 23rd to 24th September. Our Guide, Ms Jenny was an excellent person, always smiling and very helpful. The driver was highly trained and helpful. Accomodation was great. No hurry hurry My overall experience was "Excellent". It is really worth.
I recommend this tour because I enjoyed it so much. I was travelling alone but had fun anyway and met new people. When I come back here with my family I will take this company again. My tour guide, Tony, was very kind and explained interesting facts in english and chinese. He was also very helpful for everyone's needs.
Very nice touri recommended it for everyone wanna see the historical cities of USA ( Pennsylvania and Washington DC) . We were so lucky to have Mr/ Jason as our tour guide , he is well organized and well educated about all USA history and all trivia and funny facts about the places we visited. Plus the driver Mr/ jimmy , he was very safe and nice helpful courteous driver. We will definitely will travel again with them .
Overall it was an enjoyable trip. I enjoyed the visit to Lancaster the most. The hotel accommodation was great. I was in good hands with Vincent our guide and our driver. The only thing I didn't like was that I didn't have a choice as to where I could sit on the bus. The seats were assigned rather than rotated as stated on the website.
the Itinerary was not at all follwed well by the guide Simon.
The Itinerary says "US Capitol" will take 15 mins, whereas guide wasted 2.5 hrs in that. Itineray says "National Air and Space Museum" will have 45 mins, whereas guide gave only 15 mins, which was not sufficient...
The Itineray says "Madame Tussauds Wax Museum" is always vist, but guide did not cover that all, similarly he also did not cover Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Jefferson Memorial ,Korean War Veterans Memorial even by passing by... which was bad :(
The bus did not had good AC and all were sweating...
The transportation is not that good, it has AC problem in this summer...
Also the Itinerary mentioned madame tussauds wax museum, but the guide refused to show that saying its against the company policy... which is weird .. if its against policy then why have they mentioned in Itinerary
My tour guide was KK Zhang, he was qualified and very friendly.
I wish to have more time in Washinton DC to see and walk more but timtable was tight.
Amish Village was the best part of this trip!
I enjoyed the whole trip ;)
I highly recommend this tour. It was very informative and interesting. There was a lot to do in the amount of time available and that kept things moving at a good pace and made it adventurous. It was also a great way to meet new people from different backgrounds. Our tour guides Kitty and Karen were very knowledgeable and helpful. Everything was well planned and ran on schedule.
I found the tour of Amish country interesting. As someone who grew up in Pennsylvania an hour and a half away from Lancaster I was surprised to learn things I hadn鈥檛 known with the help of an extra tour guide from Lancaster who鈥檚 studies focus on the Amish people.
All meals and hotel accommodations were very good.
The last stop in D.C. had many attractions and a good amount of free time to walk about and take photos. Personally I would have liked a little more time in the Air and Space Museum being someone who loves aviation, but it was enough time to walk around and look at the main attractions. Like most museums there is enough to keep someone busy there all day if you had the time, but this was just a part of an enjoyable two day tour that was packed with attractions, history, fun and photo ops.
I would enjoy taking another tour with TakeTours.
The 2 day tour was not bad compared to its price. However, it was disappointing as they remove Madam Tussaud Museum without any notice. Also, White House and US Capitol visit was very short. They cut short these famous places to manage the trip on time but we returned 1:15 hours early. We could have seen properly White House and US Capitol.
My tour guides were Gary and Frank. This was my first experience with Take Tours. The best part was visiting the Amish Village,Lancaster. They provided very nice hotel for stay and food was good too. I would recommend this tour to everyone!
I would recommend this trip. Cayden, the tour guide was very
informative and friendly. So was Nick and the driver. The hotel was great, I loved it. The only thing I'd add is that a stop should be made before checking in to the hotel to get some food, since there was no place nearby.
Was disappointed with the tour guide as she was unfriendly, unprofessional at times, and spoke more in Mandarin. We were not aware that we signed up for a bilingual tour. Me and my family can understand and speak Mandarin, but preferred an English tour. We couldn't understand the tour guide's English most of the time. On the bright side, the accommodation was clean and comfortable. The bus ride was also smooth.
I want to congratulate L & L travels and Cayden Huang our tour guide and Shawn and driver in our tour to Washington DC from New York, last August 3rd and 4th, 2016. They provided us with excellent service and attention. We are recommending these tours to our family and friends. Thank you.
Overall tour was good. You can not have so many attractions at this price. I would like to give one feedback that the Amish village attraction (part of this tour) can be more enjoyable if they would have allowed tourist to spend 30-45 mins in the area. We just took a house tour (not very impressive) and then the 15-20 mins bus ride of the area. The village was very good to see but we couldn't roam around as we had limited time.
But the overall tour is good to go!
The tour was well planned and as per schedule. The guide was excellent and v helpful. His knowledge was also indeed good. The only issue was the malfunctioning of the bus air conditioning system on the return which made the entire journey from Washington DC to China town almost a nightmare. Pl ensure that such basic things are taken care of.
This was my first experience with Take Tours. The whole trip was excellent. I had guests visiting and took them on the trip. They enjoyed a lot and was surprised to see so many attractions in two days. Highly recommend this tour!!
I have taken this tour on last weekend(2nd and 3rd July 2016). This was a great trip. Accommodation was superb at Sheraton. We visited the No 1 ranked national university in the United States. The living space of scholars, producing geniuses across all sectors.The best part was visit to the Amish Village,Lancaster. Life without TV, Mobile, Electricity, Vehicles and all amenities provided in this modern world is beyond imagination. But there is this community of people who have been living in this posh area of Pennsylvania without all this dedicatedly since decades. They r mainly farmers, growing their own crop, meat, and all other food items. Women stitch the clothes for the whole family. They ride horses, travel in buggies, live a simple life staying away from any kind of limelight. 2nd day trip to Washington DC was also awesome. We would like to go with take tour in our upcoming trips too.
My opinion is that the trip should be only for WashingTon DC as there are too many beautiful places in DC rather than Amish Village. Also the Bus AC was not working which is not appropriate for such tours. Apart from this Tour Guide "Cora" was providing sufficient information and very informative.
This tour was really worth for the money we spend. Tour Guide was Cora Chen, she did great job. She was extremely knowledgeable and fun. She was never in hurry and we covered all the places in the given time. The Hotel provided by the tour was neat and clean with morning breakfast so it saved our time to go after the breakfast
Its a great trip. It's a worth for the money you pay. Especially our tour leader..simply excellent. Her name is Cora Chen and she is very very helpful. She answers all the questions patiently and she is so co-operative. she manages the time very well so that everybody gets what they want in the trip. we didn't miss any attraction.
Nice tour..Olivia was our tour leader..she was sweet friendly and full of life..very jolly girl..they provided very nice hotel for stay and food was good too..We got to see many attractions in two days.. Driver was good..he drove smoothly..pick up was little late but drop off was before time and it was great for us as we had to catch flight for chicago after the tour.. I would recommend this tour to everyone !!!
This was a great trip. kkzhang & his team helped us lot during the trip, He took us into the House of Representatives and answered our questions and explained the lawmaking process to us. kkzhang was very informative as he escorted us throughout the rest of the capital. Well worth the trip to see specially with kkzhang & Team
This is my second time for this tour. It was awesome! The first one was with a friend visiting, second time was with a family member. I love it. My congratulations to this company for having great employees! Looking and planning again for another tour next month!
This tour was well worth the money and some. I did not expect too much for the low price but was very pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide, Matthew, was extremely knowledgeable and fun. The bus driver, Mr. Ling, was the best driver anyone could ask for in the New York nightmare of driving. He is a very, very good driver. The attractions were well planned and more than expected. I would not only recommend this tour to anyone visiting New York for the first time, but I will use TakeTours.com in the future for my own travels. Excellent service for minimal price. Definitely a great deal!
It was a short and good trip. Recommended for people who are on short visit to US and wants to cover most of the places. Seems to be a little expensive as all the attraction fees are not covered and apart from this we need to pay the service charge separately.
We booked for 2 day tour of DC, Philadelphia, Amish farms. Tour guide Sean was very helpful and managed thongs well on time for foods and other arrangements. Visit to amish farms was memorable and well planned. Sequence of attractions, food timings were well planned. Hotel stay was comfortable and relaxing.
