The itinerary was good and the guide Okai was perfect. We left NYC close to 7 am and were back at 9pm. Though the 9 hour bus trip is a bit tiring but the impressions definitely got over it. The only thing Id like to improve is to have a bit more free time there explore the city.

Michael was great. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. He kept our 10 year old and 2 adults engaged for 2 hours in the Art museum. Thank you.
