I was so pleased with my tour of Beijing! The tour picked me up at my hotel and we saw the Forbidden City, Great Wall, had a fantastic lunch, toured a jade store, and got a foot massage. The tour guide was funny, kind, and efficient! She showed genuine concern for our needs and everyone on the tour was genuinely happy! This is the tour to book with. You will see all the sites and you’ll have such a pleasant time. I would recommend it to anyone!

Thank you for the hard work and dedication in making my trip great. Every detail from local flights, hotels, personal drivers and the local tour guides were fantastic. Before the actual trip I called several times and was able to get pleasant help from a kind agent who answered all my quest. Each day was better than the other I even wished I had more time in the country to get to explore more cities in depth. Shanghai was jaw dropping and in Beijing I was able to catch the flag raising ceremony in the greatest square with great accuracy and tradition. The local food was phenomenal and I had the pleasure to join a local family for one dinner and it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the ease of everything in the country and I recommend the company to anyone who is interested in a complete Chinese experience.

Excellent guide and bus driver throughout the vacation. Accommodation was excellent and the pace was perfect. All the people were great to travel with and no one was late getting back on the coach after we stopped for photo opportunities, shopping stops or toilet breaks. The Chinese meals supplied for lunch were excellent. Over all had an excellent time with my fellow travellers on this holiday. We had a wonderful experience without any hiccups, from the time we arrived and met up with our beautiful tour director Haha and our fellow travelers who were a fun group to tour with. This group tour was very good value for money and i could tell it was all the travelers wanted.

The holiday of a life time our adventure in the Great Wall was without a doubt our favourite family trip. The comfort and beauty of the country, the incredibly caring crew, the delicious food, the history we learned from our competent and friendly tour director, along with the stunning beauty of the views hiking around the area and into small remote alleyways in the hutongs was very relaxing. The accommodation was more than adequate with rooms being serviced everyday. There was ample deck space to lounge, reading or talking. The staff on the hotel were lovely and attentive. Excellent.

As an American visitor ready to tour China i wanted to get in touch with Chinese People and their culture and traditions through the fabulous regions and landscapes as well as their fascinating cities and lovely countryside and I achieved it throughout the tour. The highlight of my tour was the mighty Yangtze River cruise that went smoothly and was also fun. Eating Chinese food in the local joints also was a nice part of further discovery.
