Dear Lexi:

Thank you for making the travel arrangements for my wife and I. Overall an excellent China tour company. Here are our detailed reviews:

In Shanghai our guide was Leo and he was there to meet us when we came out of the cruise terminal. Leo gave us an excellent trip and we were extremely happy with his services. Leo is bright, speaks excellent English with a very slight, easy to understand accent, and has a great sense of humor. We are planning to return to Shanghai next year and would wish to have him as our guide. The driver was very good and Leo's excellent coordination with the driver meant that we never had to wait.

In Tianjin our guide, Tina, and our driver were waiting for us when we arrived. Tina did a wonderful job guiding us to all of the sites as well as getting us checked into our hotel. She is a very kind, caring, highly respectful young lady who took very good care of my wife who needed assistance at time. We were very touched by her behavior.

Our driver was excellent also. We would highly recommend both of them.
Sincerely yours,

Peter H. Pflaum,M.D..

Hi Wendy,

My father and I enjoyed the sights and the sceneries very much. Your country is very beautiful and the people are very hospitable. We had a great time. I have told all my friends about the beautiful places and also the excellent services your company provided. Please see our China tour reviews below:

The company was very great to work with right from the start. They planned our trip exactly as we had requested and were able to see all the sights and cities that we wanted. The company accommodated every request. The arrangements were seamless and our time was very well planned and well spent.

Our accommodation in every city was very good. All the hotels were upscale and our rooms were very comfortable. The location of each hotel was also very convenient.

All the drivers were very good in their driving and drove very safely and followed the traffic rules and the ride was very comfortable. They knew the routes very well. The cars were also very clean and comfortable. 

All our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were very professional and at the same time very good company. They were very thoughtful. They are very passionate about their work and also very patient and managed our inquiries and accommodated our requests very well. 

All the places and cities we visited had a lot of history and beauty in them. Rich in culture and history. The shows we saw were simply amazing. Our travel from one destination to the next was seamless and very well planned to save as much time as possible and was a great experience in itself. The high-speed trains were very comfortable and time-saving. 

Overall I will give ten out of ten to your company, the arrangements, the drivers, the cars, the guides and the sights and cities. I would use no other company other than TCG when visiting China again. My father and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Your company and your guides made our visit very memorable. :) 

Thank you very much for everything and hope to travel with you again.

Kind regards

Nadia Ghazali

Dear Linda,

In reply to your email regarding our recent China trip, I would like to comment as follows:

Booking Procedure: I found the booking procedure easy to follow and all went according to plan regarding pick up from Tianjin Port.

Guide and Driver: Our guide Barry was very friendly and understanding and totally fulfilled our wishes. He was very knowledgeable of all the places we visited and was patient and flexible with our requests. The drivers we had were safe and polite and the cars we travelled in were very comfortable and clean.

In Summary: Our tour of Beijing and surrounds was the major highlight of our cruise around Asia and I would like to thank you for your expert organisation, and Barry and drivers for their first class service. I will certainly recommend you and your organisation to any of my friends who intend to visit China.

I am open to my feedback being used for your webpage if you desire and I will also share my best China tours reviews on TripAdvisor.

Hi Sophie,

I had a fabulous time on the tour! We would like to offer our China small group tour reviews as follows:

Selena in Beijing was a lovely guide, very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable & excellent English. It was really interesting learning all about Chinese culture and seeing the amazing sites!

The food/restaurants were all great choices and really high quality!

The hotels were also really nice just a shame there wasn't long enough to use all the facilities.

Jacky in Xian was also very helpful and friendly and helped arranged my transfer back to the airport from Xian.

All The sites/activities were really great and very interesting...not a bad word to say about any of the trip!

Definitely use you guys again if I come back to your country! :-)

Thanks for All your help when I was booking and please tell Selena & Jacky thanks again for making my time in China so enjoyable!

Firstly, 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. It is also great that you are asking for reviews of our escorted China tour.

Overall we had an amazing holiday, better than any of us were expecting. The private trip made it so easy and we loved the flexibility.

All our guides spoke very good English and were easy to understand and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met however our guide Celine in Xi'an was a standout, her positive attitude made our days that little bit more enjoyable.

All the meals that were included or were recommended by our guides were delicious. We tried lots of different food that we would never usually eat and I can say gladly we did not have a bad meal.

I would highly recommend TCG, the booking process was so easy and the trip itself was amazing. We felt like we saw a broad range of what china has to offer and did it at our own pace which made it very enjoyable.

Thanks again for all your help.

Good morning!

We had such a wonderful time on the vacation. Please see my reviews on this wonderful China tour company below:

Guide: Our guide, Eddie, was wonderful! He took very good care of us and made sure that we had what we needed each day. He was always prompt to pick us up at the hotel and flexible during the day if we wanted to spend a bit longer or shorter at a particular place.

Drivers/cars: Each of our drivers was wonderful and the cars were clean. They were all very courteous and made the trip very enjoyable.

Tours: We enjoyed all of the sights that we visited. There was plenty of time at each of them and flexibility in the schedule. The only thing I would suggest is to let people know the amount of walking and the various environments that one will be walking in (walking around Hu Tong is easy compared to walking up the hill for the Great Wall). Knowing in advance that there would be lots of stairs or uphill walking would have been helpful.

Hotel: The hotel, Crowne Plaza was nice. It is a bit older hotel, but the breakfast was wonderful and the staff is very friendly.

Overall, we had just the best time and I would recommend your services to anyone I know who wants to travel to China.

Thank you,

Thank you for a memorable experience. We have many positive reviews about our guided China tour you organised.

Contacted TCG via the web page and received a response to my first inquiry in a timely manner. Wendy Lee replied to the request for information and began to work via email with my friend and I to put together a memorable private trip. She responded to both of our many request for information when we would change our plans.

Susan our guide in Xian provided water upon our arrival and throughout our entire time in Xian. We had planned a free day in Xian to explore on our own and Susan provided some great tips on things we should see and do. She also provided a Metro map and took us into the Metro to show us how to purchase tickets and find our way around. Each time we arrived at a planned site she told us exactly what we should carry. Water, sunglasses, etc. After two days in Xian Susan took us to the airport checked us in and told us exactly where to go to board our plane. Our overall experience in Xian was wonderful and memorable. The Terra-cotta Warriors are a must see and Susan showed us around the area with ease and knowledge.

Next we were greeted by Alina in Chengdu. The Panda Keeper Experience was a once in a lifetime experience and a highlight of the trip. Highly recommend this trip for anyone that would like to be up close and personal with the pandas.

Wendy, thank you for all your help in planning our vacation. We will keep your information for our future travels as we know we will be returning in the future. There are so many other wonderful places to visit.

Dear Abbey,

Please find below our China tour small group reviews. In short - this was an excellent and superbly organised trip run by true professionals.

The whole process was excellent and having you, Abbey, as a named point of contact made a huge difference. You were very responsive to all our requests for information and this is very reassuring when venturing out to such new places for the first time. It was also really great that we met up with you in Xi'an and that you were not just a nominal contact.

Guides were all excellent and enthusiastic about their towns. Sara was a particularly good guide to have first (on arrival in Beijing) as she had such good English and was able to explain so much extra about things and people we would meet. Other guides were all clear and enthusiastic guides.

It was good to include a variety of cities and towns such as Chongqing and Yichang and to understand more about real life in China whilst visiting different types of home (Flat, farm, Hutong).

All best wishes and thanks again for an excellent holiday.
