Description

Day 1
Leave NYC in the morning and head north to see the famous Niagara Falls. En route you will make numerous stops, including at the Delaware Water Gap National Park and Watkins Glen State Park, located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, which is famous for its scenic lakes and rivers.

After an additional stop at Seneca Lake, you will arrive at Niagara at the end of the afternoon. Discover the numerous waterfalls including those at American Falls, Goat Island and Sister Island. At nightfall, you'll also get the chance to see Niagara Falls by the light of the moon and stars.

Day 2
The next morning, you will make your way from Niagra Falls to Horseshoe falls where you will embark on the 'Maid of the Mist'. The boat will take you up close to the intense and volumous flow of water – a surprisingly exhilerating experience. At the end of the cruise, the coach will head back towards NYC, stopping off en-route at an Outlet Mall where you can shop for bargains.

After the shopping stop, your coach will take you to a New Jersey hotel to spend the night.

Day 3
Leave your hotel and head to Philadelphia, passing through the state of Pennsylvania. Upon arrival, take a bus tour to see Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Elfert Alley, the Philidelphia Museum of Art with its famous 'Rocky Steps', and much more.

The tour then continues to Washington DC via the the states of Delaware and Maryland. Arriving in DC, you'll see the Capitol building, the Senate and the White House accompanied by your guide, before visiting the Air and Space Museum and the Lincoln Memorial.

Day 4
Your day will begin with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, to attend the changing of the guard and see the Kennedy tomb. Then you will head to the national Mint to see how American dollars are made!

After the mint, your bus will leave Philadelphia and head for Lancaster, the heart of the Amish lands. You will visit a traditional Amish village and discover their way of life, without modern technology, electricity, running water or telephones. Take a trip to an Amish market where you can try some local specialties or pick up some artisanal products for souvenirs.

The coach will then make its way back to New York, arriving in the early evening.
