I took this tour with Caravan, still had to pay single supplement. If I went back I would probably stay in one area and book everything myself. Group travel is a buffet you get to see a little bit of many places. Cover thousands of miles and when you decide to go back you know where you want to focus your stay. Third week in October is best time to see foliage in New England states. Japan and New England states have the most beautiful foliage anywhere in world. I haven’t made it to Japan yet but it’s on the list. Click on caravan website and it will give you detailed about the places they go and stops. I’m not associated with Caravan at all, hopefully will be in future. I definitely give the company great reviews for price and tour manager. Less expensive then a lot of the foliage trips.
