A tour of the northeastern us
Roundtrip from New York
From big city bustle in New York to anachronistic Amish communities in rural Pennsylvania, this 9-day trip captures the rollicking history and modern energy of the East Coast. Relive the revolution in Boston, explore the great museums of Washington DC and get soaked on the boat at Niagara Falls. You’ll travel by private van and stay in central hotels so that you’re always in the heart of the action. This trip is compact enough for those short on time but long enough to make some new friends while discovering America’s past.
