Tour arrangement & confirmation has been arrange perfectly. Everything meet on time, accommudations room been provided was above expectation.
Our Tour Guide “Mr. Brian Montgomery” he was very knowledgeable in selling his product as Tour Guide. He is a very friendly & helpful guide;;; very smart & fatherly person too.
Smooth bus touring with no unwanted thing happen with the most memorable tour was set by is the Niagaria Falls. Not to forget the most experienced bus driver is the key to complete our tour back safely to New York city. Start haPPy with ending haPPy too.
We are very satisfied customers.

Destinations great but so many disappointments
The destinations on this tour were great and Niagara Falls were amazing, but I have to say the stress of finding out 14hours prior to departure that the tour you’ve booked through the Viator website does not actually correspond with what Empire Vacations offers was a big let down and costly. We booked and paid for all our holidays accommodation based around this one tours stops i.e Washington as final stopover, imagine our shock at finding out that our final stopover was Niagara Falls. All our follow on accommodation we had personally booked was in Washington DC as per the tour we’d booked on Viator. This wasn’t Empire Vacations fault, they did their utmost to try and find a solution to our situation, even as we started traveling on the tour. Suffice it to say this deviation was an expensive exercise.

Our tour guide for the first two days through Philadelphia & Washington DC was Jutta and she was fantastic. She gave everyone a really positive experience with lots of information, great organization & care for all passengers. On top of this she couldn’t do enough to help us in our predicament.

The second half of the tour was not nearly as enjoyable and most of this was due to the new tour guide. An ex school teacher that appeared to think we were his pupils rather paying passengers, and felt a strong need to share his political view any chance he got. Let’s not get started on the fact that I didn’t get to sit with my husband on this leg of the trip, and when i brought this up with our tour guide towards the end of the first day hoping to have something quietly done to change the situation because it was upsetting to me, he promptly made a public announcement about it on the bus topping it off with a joke about whether or not my husband would actually want to sit together. The highlight for these 2 days of the tour was Niagara Falls which are spectacular to see whether it’s up close on the maid of the mist or with fireworks exploding over top of them at night.

All these places are really worth seeing when you travel to the United States but for me I’m not convinced this was the best way.

BOOK DIRECT ONLY!
This trip from Empire Vacations is good. BUT But!!! If booking through Viator beware.

The Saturday tour does not go to Niagara Falls first. If you want to start and finish in NYC than ok, but if like us you choose to skip the drive from Washington back to NYC and continue your holiday in DC, it wont happen from the tour starting Saturday. You will spend your time on the bus searching the internet trying to work out how to get to Washington from Niagara Falls. Viator are aware, we have told them and asked them to update their info, but 1 month on it still hasn’t happened. Viator has credited our card a partial refund of @ 1/6th.
So if you book direct with Empire Vacations you should get the dates and tours correct. The hotel rooms were large and the beds comfortable. Jutta was a great guide and super helpful also making sure we were at Capitol Hill way before a demonstration was supposed to be happening plus she had plans in place if there was trouble. Our next guide Peter (you swap to another bus ie 2 x 2day tours)... Well... we were not fans of Peter.

Wonderful trip
Sep 2017 • Couples
We took the 4 day trip which is nothing but the combination of 2-Day Niagara Falls + 2-Day DC, Philadelphia and Amish Country.
Overall the tour was very well coordinated. Empire Vacations provide multiple language options and within the bus you will sit according to your language preference.
We first visited Philadelphia and then Washington DC and Amish Country.
In Washington DC there are many informative and interesting museums which you can visit for free. Tour guide gave us 2 hrs to visit museums of our choice. We visited National Museum of the American Indian, which was excellent. I would have enjoyed more if more time was allotted for museum visit.

At the end of the second day, bus dropped us at Hotel located in outskirts of NY (New Jersey) and another bus was scheduled to pick us up in the next morning. As scheduled we boarded the other bus in the next morning and continued our trip to Niagara Falls.
In Niagara, Empire vacation will arrange your accommodation either in US side or Canada side depending on the visa. We stayed at Comfort Inn in the US side, which is at fantastic location. This is the nearest hotel from the falls and we could walk to the Goat Island and the Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls experience and the Maid of the Mist (Included in trip) was outstanding.

When returning we visited Outlet malls. I would highly recommend that Empire Vacations can consider changing this stoppage to Corning Museum of Glass.
