Welcome to USA Guided Tours Blog!
In short, people who comprise our great company are passionate about sightseeing and our great cities. These are pretty much the main prerequisites to fit perfectly into our team. Another thing we, at USA Guided Tours, are passionate about is doing sightseeing the right way, the way it was done in the good old days when tour guides would stick an umbrella in the air, so you don’t lose them in a crowd and would take you around to introduce you to the sites in a more intimate way, pioneered by the great Thomas Cook. The good news is that this time-tested concept is still alive! We, at USA Guided Tours, truly believe that only fully guided bus tours done with smaller groups, in climate-controlled buses, and conducted by the best local tour guides is the best way to go about sightseeing!
The fact is that visitors who come to explore iconic cities, such as New York City and Washington, DC prefer this fully-guided concept. Numerous studies have been conducted to confirm this, and essentially it boils down to a few main factors that give the fully-guided concept an edge over the open-top sightseeing. To name a few:
level of comfort delivered by climate-controlled buses, smaller groups, and live tour guides on board
manageable time-window (in our case: 4 and 5 hours for our night and day tours respectively)
the quality of information travelers receive through live tour guides
great social experience through meeting people with different cultural backgrounds
worry-free sightseeing experience, as all the tour itinerary planning is done by your tour provider
We’ll share some of our city insights in the following posts through the lens of our local tour guides, along with some travel tips for you. We’ll wrap up here by giving you the first travel tip when sightseeing New York City and Washington, DC — dress comfortably — comfortable walking shoes and clothes are essential for a great sightseeing experience.
We hope this gives you a good idea of what we do and how we do it, and regardless of the type of sightseeing approach you prefer, we certainly hope you’ll truly enjoy your sightseeing experience!
