Unique Finds That We Would Have Never Picked Ourselves

I love a good plan and I love it even more when I do not have to do the planning! From the suggested departure times to when we could expect to spend money/buy food to including additional activities and stops, Guess Where Trips really thought of all the details. There were so many pros, its hard to capture them in just one review - the biggest one has to be exploring an area we never would have otherwise. The only "con" (I use that term lightly) is that it was advertised as a paranormal tour and while there was certainly some rich history, we did not hear anything about ghosts, outside of the brief NJ Devil tale. With that said, we will be back to hit up the trails and stops we did not get to complete - 2 trips for the price of one!
