Mary was amazing. She knows the country so well and she just moved along on our excursion and took us to some amazing sites. One of our favorites was the "firefighters memorial" remembering 9/11 in New York. If you want an incredible day packed with wonderful and worthwhile stops, book with Mary. She is a gem.
