"I had outstanding service from beginning to end. Upon arrival meeting the guides in the lobby alleviated any fears. Having bags picked up in the AM was wonderful. Now I know to take a carry on bag for the items I need to carry to the bus each day. The bus driver was always courteous and helped everyone off the bus at each stop, which was a bonus. The guides were courteous and knowledgeable about each area. The group of travelers were friendly, as well. I had a wonderful time and looking forward to my next trip in December. I have already recommended the agency. At first, I thought 14 days was too long but I found out that it allowed for a comfortable pace. "

"Would consider doing another bus tour because we covered more ground than we ever could have on our own, and being dropped off exactly where we wanted to go was nice. Also having a tour director to coordinate and to give background about where we were going was great."

"Overall, the tour was very well organized. Never had to wait long for luggage to arrive at the room for the night. The tour manager was very pleasant and seemed to have a personable manner. Optional tours I felt were reasonably priced."

"There are no marks high enough. What a fabulous tour manager! Her knowledge and professionalism certainly made this tour an outstanding trip. Our driver was excellent. He worked so well with the tour manager. He maintained his professionalism and catered to our needs. The combination of the driver and the tour manager certainly made this an outstanding trip. Thank you for such a wonderful trip. My mother had traveled with your group several years ago when her husband was alive. She raved about the trip, the care for the travelers and the great experience of having a knowledgeable guide traveling with the group. I was cautious, but after traveling with the group on the Autumn Leaves Tour I would certainly recommend this trip to everyone. Our driver and guide helped make this a memorable experience for my mother and I. An outstanding experience!"

"The price is good, the tours offered are good as to the areas you travel. The comfortable motor coaches, the accommodating staff, the ease of purchasing and adding excursions [was great]. I have traveled with YMT on two tours now. Both times I have enjoyed the experience. Of the two tours, the Canadian Rockies and Alaska Tour is my favorite. The tour guide was also the bus driver and he was from the area we were touring so his knowledge of the area was great. The hotels were very comfortable and the choice of restaurants to eat were great. My husband and cousins that travel with me and I are looking forward to the next trip. "

"[Tour guide] was very knowledgeable about the places visited and gave us a lot of insight before arriving at the location. Excellent tour guide...We have been on three YMT tours and we have been more than satisfied with the overall experience in each one. We have been to Europe twice with YMT prior to the Autumn Leaves Tour...YMT is a great deal and we have recommended it to all our friends who are looking to travel. For our idea of travel, YMT fits our plan and budget very well. The overall experience is excellent. YMT has given us options as to explore on our own or use the preplanned activities."

"Monica was an awesome guide - she radiates passion in her position as such. Will miss her! Overall, I'm so glad that I did this trip. There is so much history to absorb on the east coast. I'm thankful and blessed to have had this opportunity to travel and make many special friends along the way..."leave the driving to...us!" I liked that everything was laid out in detail for us. I never felt confined or restricted."

"Diane Martin was a top notch professional tour guide. She was knowledgeable about every area we visited. She gave us historical background before we visited sites. She was attentive to each tourist's needs. I would tour with her again at any cost! My group had a blast. Every moment was exciting and beautiful. We met new friends, ate our way through New England, and laughed at Diane's silly jokes! We had a professional tour guide. Our arrangements went off without any glitches. The Autumn Leaves tour was the best way to see New England in the Fall."

"The travel schedule was full and allowed us to stop at more sights. The routes provided a varied look at the New England states and great opportunities to view the colorful foliage. [Tour Manager] was very informative with lots of extra trivia and backgrounds about certain locations. His major in history was likely a good contributing factor...[Driver] was very cheerful attitude and sincerely cared about the group. She brought us close as possible to our destinations with excellent driving skills. It was nice to take several 2-lane roads and get off the interstates. Well planned trip and good value for the money."

"We loved [our tour manager]! She was very knowledgeable about all areas and her sense of humor was entertaining. She went above and beyond her normal duties and was on call 24/7 for everyone. We appreciated her plan of moving our seating arrangement every day so that we got to visit with different people. This was our third trip with YMT and enjoyed ourselves and the friends we made. We will definitely plan to travel with you again in the future!"

"Our Tour Manager was the best. Her personality and knowledge is what helped make the tour so good for my wife and me. She was well organized and could not have asked for more on her part. This was our first tour and we hope to go on another tour in the future with her as our guide. You definitely need to keep her with YMT. My idea of what a Tour Manager should be! [Our driver] made this tour so memorable. We were all amazed as his ability to take the bus anywhere we needed to go. Always there on time and added much enjoyment. He also played well off the banter with the tour director and people on the bus. Lots of personality. We knew about YMT through Dave Woodman who goes to our church and is a tour guide with your company. Wanting to see the autumn leaves in New England states and talking with Dave made our decision to go. We came back with many good memories and were surprised how well the 50 people on our bus got along which is due in part to the excellent job of our Tour Manager/Driver."
