    We would like to send our sincere thanks to those ladies counselors and these guides at the local agencies in each city who helped us have the best vacation ever in China from Nov 21st – Dec 1st, 2019. Without them, we will never decide to go on with our dream to go to see the Great Wall and Terracotta Soldiers!

    Your arrangements were superb. All the Guides were professional as were the drivers and all vehicles were satisfactory. The food was also one of the delights of the Holiday and very well chosen. We thank you very much for all your hard work. We will be back in touch when we are in China.

    Thank you so much for your assistance planning and booking our trip. You were very helpful and knowledgeable and made the process so easy and calmed my nerves about booking online and not through a local travel agent. The whole trip went very well. We have already recommended your service to several of my friends.

    We had an awesome holiday. Every aspect of our holiday was perfectly organized by this company. There was nothing we would have done differently. The guides were superb. The meals we enjoyed have changed my mind forever about Chinese food! I have directed many would be travelers to this website. Their thoughtfulness in organizing a surprise birthday cake for my husband, complete with candles and serving utensils really touched us deeply. Thank you very much.

    Overall, our whole journey was a fantastic experience. I am pleased to offer the comments below. The food at the meals arranged for us ranged from adequate to excellent, and there was always a very large quantity of food. The A La Carte meals were very good and it was fun to choose our dishes. The restaurants in Beijing were especially good. All of the guides had very good to excellent English skills except our guide in Guilin, whose English was a little weak. In particular, Candy in Beijing spoke English extremely well and was very outgoing and enthusiastic. Tanya in Shanghai spoke English almost like a U.S. native, which was amazing to us, since she had never visited an English-speaking country. She also has a fantastic personality. All of the guides were very knowledgeable about the places we visited. Lily in Xian had an especially extensive knowledge of Chinese history. All of the drivers were very professional, competent, and nice people. The cars were all extremely clean and well maintained. We were picked up at each site as soon as we were done touring, so that we did not need to waste time waiting for the drivers. Mr. Fong, our driver in Beijing and the Great Wall, was especially personable and my daughter, who speaks Chinese, enjoyed talking to him. Our most memorable driver was Mr. Yong, in Xian. Mr. Yong is an excellent and very professional driver and we felt very safe with him. He also is a very nice person who has had many interesting life experiences and my daughter had a lot of fun talking with him in Chinese. We can’t say enough thanks for such a memorable vacation for my family. ... More

    I'm writing to show my thanks to all of the staff who help us arrange a fabulous trip in China. Especially, I want to say special thanks to Selina, the guide in Beijing. I think Selina is one of the best local guides we had during this trip. She is courteous and sincere, and has an excellent knowledge of the Beijing region. Her command of the English language is good. She showed genuine interests towards her customers. We have a number of older folks in our tour group. I was impressed that she went out of her ways to be helpful to my parents. She was not pushy but gave us time to work things out and make our decisions. She always consulted us before making any major decision or deviating from the original itinerary. She did a great job in making our time at Beijing enjoyable. When she sent us off at the airport, she was well organized and showed attention to details. I am happy to recommend her to future tour groups. She was really an ambassador to your company. Thanks and highly recommended. ... More

    Most of our tour guides were excellent. They all have good command of English, are all very knowledgeable and offered us a lot of interesting and helpful information. Three of our guides stood out as some of the best that we have met in the industry: Barry, our first guide in Beijing: Barry was very helpful and was eager to make sure our stay in Beijing was comfortable and our preferences be accommodated. He also offered good advice and useful information for the rest of our trip as well. Jacky, our guide in Xian was full of enthusiasm and he really took good care of his customers because he truly believed he was an ambassador for his country and his home town rather than just a guide. I was really touched by his attitude and enthusiasm. Our guide in Guilin, Miss Liu Yu is also a great host who took good care of us and made sure our wishes and preferences be accommodated.. I felt that these three individuals are definitely some of the best in their field and I felt that I have made three good friends on this trip.
    The lunches that were arranged for us were of good quality and they were generally very good representation of the local cuisine.
    The hotels arranged for us varied in their quality. The one we liked the most was the Sheraton Shanghai Hongkou Hotel. It is a hotel with true international 5-star standard. It is absolutely stunning. The service and the food quality were also excellent. We were not too happy with the hotel in Beijing. It does not have a good location.
