2 About hotel service, according to the review from Evanston, the hotel they arranged is not as good as they advertised. It’s dirty so they asked for a representative from the company to change a hotel, unluckily, they are told to stay one night in this hotel.

3 Also, there are many travelers said that it’s likely that you will be forced to tourist shopping spots where were not scheduled in the itinerary.
