“The New England/New York City tour was our first experience with R&J Tours and it did not disappoint! Seeing Niagara Falls & the Statue of Liberty was spectacular and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum was sombering, and those were just a few of the amazing attractions. We enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends. Thanks R&J Tours.” Colleen & Curt, Bloomington 


 “A trip to New York & New England was a dream of ours & on our ‘bucket list.’ R&J fulfilled our dream. Every spot we toured was a big ‘wow’ for us!
