  • très bons hôtels, voyage en bus manquant de clarté, partir de NY pour aller à Philadelphie, puis le lendemain Washington et revenir dormir à New Jersey, c'était très long pour repartir le lendemain aux chutes du Niagara, enfin c'était très beau, le premier guide trop jeune ne s'occupant pas trop de nous, et le second guide très gentil, un féru d'histoire mais il ne sait pas s'arrêter de parler et il était agé et n'entendait pas bien, mais dans l'ensemble de belles découvertes
