A day on the bus
Parsifal, Jan 2024
Despite we expected a long trip, we spent 90% of the trip on the bus. In Washington we had very short time to visit the Museum and to watch the monuments but, we wasted more than one hour visiting different war-memorials which were not of our interest, especially when you have very limited time. Same story for Philadelphia, visited in a big rush, despite it is a city very attractive. The main visit in Philadelphia was the "Rocky-Stairs", which is good for fans but definitely not the most beautiful monument of the city.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Dear Parsifal, Thank you very much for your feedback on your experience and we are sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied. With your feedback we can pinpoint these areas of opportunity and we will be working hard to eliminate those negative aspects and achieve a better service. We hope you can give us a second chance to change your perspective on us. Kind regards from quality team of Amigo Tours.

Washington DC and Philadelphia, wonderful tour, excellent guide. Such a shame it poured with rain and most of us were soaked.
Fantastic and informative day, highly recomend
Louise_S, Sep 2023
Informative trip, took us directly to all the main monuments in Washington and Philadelphia. Our guide Alice was fantastic. Be prepared that it is a long day and lots of hours on a coach but still I would highly recommend if you are interested in seeing these 2 cities well worth the journey,
