In question of service of your guides are also very much impressive to us as because the punctuality, smartness, attendance, behavior, friendly attitude of your both young energetic guides, Candy (Beijing), Lily (Xi'an) were very much helpful to us, never we feel we are in aboard.

Our apologies for not doing this sooner but it has been very busy since we returned from your country.
We had a wonderful trip with your company and were overall most impressed with the whole booking procedure and the execution of the tour in each city. The hotels and meals were of a high standard, even those where the guides organized and we had to pay.
Most of the guides went out of their way to ensure we were well informed and being flexible to cater for our needs. Of course it would have been nicer to have more time in some places.
We did get a little tired of the many museums and would have preferred some more local market time. But there are no complaints.
Thank you for a most interesting and memorable time in your country. Our very best to you and your guides. A job well done.

Thanks for your email. My mum and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and had so much fun. I thought the tour was very well organized and was very satisfied with the hotels and drivers and cleanliness of the buses/transport.
The restaurants in all cities provided delicious food and I enjoyed the meals. In Xi'an I particularly enjoyed the dumpling banquet and the lunch in a local family home.
Beijing- Sara was our guide for three days and knowledgeable about the sights we visited. Sara was also flexible and her experience of dealing with groups was excellent. Sara was also personable with a fun sense of humor.
Xi'an - Celine was our guide while in Xi'an and she was also excellent. Celine took particular care to ensure the group members with dietary restrictions were catered for and no request was a problem. We rode bikes on the city wall and Celine was patient and watched our bags so we could enjoy ourselves. Celine was friendly and welcoming.
Shanghai - Joyce was also very personable and professional and provided real life insights into life as a Shanghai local.
Overall, the guides I met on my trip were fantastic!! The guides did provide time to complete the feedback forms and were not pushy.
Booking the tour was very easy and my emails were responded to quickly. I would recommend to my friends and will definitely look to use Travel China Guide again when I visit other parts of China and India.
Thanks for making my holiday so easy.

We were very pleased with all the arrangement TravelChinaGuide made. Our guide Arthur was excellent and provided us with a lot of very useful information. He was also very knowledgeable.
The hotel in Guilin was wonderful. The hotel in Yangshuo was fine, but more tired than the Guilin Bravo. Location of both hotels was ideal.
I would definitely use your agency and recommend it to others.

We had an awesome holiday. Every aspect of our holiday was perfectly organized by your 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 the your website. Your thoughtfulness in organizing a surprise birthday cake for my husband, complete with candles and serving utensils really touched us deeply.
Thank you very much. You all deserve the best China tours reviews. We will also write reviews on TripAdvisor. Keep up the good work.

We arrived at the airport in Beijing and we were met by our guide, Kevin. He walked us to the car (actually a van) how could he have known we'd have so many luggages? We met the driver and were driven to our hotel, The Days Inn. On our way there Kevin reviewed the itinerary with us and once we arrived he made sure we got checked in with no problems. It was very reassuring to have him there with us. We went up to our room settled in- our room was comfortable and offered all the amenities. We went to find a place for dinner and we were pleased with a local restaurant right by the hotel. All in all a great start to our excursion in Beijing.
We came home and watched Transformers-Age of Extinction-and recognized quite A few buildings we had seen recently in Hong Kong-very timely and quite funny!
This was our first travel day. Kevin was always punctual. He provided some history of the places we were going to see as we drove to the first location.
We headed out to Tien-Amen Square, the Forbidden City then to the Hall of prayer for good harvest! We then asked to be dropped off at the Pearl Market where we bartered for goods! Kevin provided great advice on bartering and was sure that we understood how to get home via taxi- he made sure we had a card indicating the hotel address.
Kevin always provided great information, was open to questions anytime and if he didn't know the answer he would quickly find the answer for us. He provided information about his life in China which we really liked. We went out to the Great Wall (talk about a steep walk up and down) amazing!! We saw the valley between the mountains and the 3 inner walls before we got to the Great Wall. This was to protect the Chinese from the Mongolians and the Manchurians. Then we went to the Sacred Walk... Entrance to Emperor Ming's tomb of the Ming Dynasty ...Where we began our walk to the underground Ming tomb- 200 steps down. Huge tomb which was built 30 years before he died and also for the 2 Empresses. And because he had sex with the maid and she had a son who succeeded Ming, the maid became Empress by default. His wife was also the Empress...
We then drove about an hour back to Beijing.
Breakfast at the hotel, checked out, and on our way to the pearl factory, then the Summer Palace- most beautiful gardens in Beijing. Summer Palace built in 1750 by Qing Emperor for His mother's 60th birthday. Kevin was again on time and assured we would be at the airport in good time; not only were we driven to the airport, he escorted us in, made sure we got checked in and walked us as far as he could to our gate!
This was an amazing experience; we would recommend the tour Company and Kevin! Thank you for making the last leg of our trip so memorable!!

We were VERY SATISFIED with the guides, drivers, meals, hotels, and the trip as a whole. It was what we had hoped for in every aspect. And we would thoroughly recommend your company to others. One 'problem' we came across that affected not us but others in our party was dealt with rapidly and efficiently by the guide who met us off the train. We were impressed that he was able to contact someone without delay and was able to sort out the arrangements without too much annoyance.
All our guides were of very high standard. And their English was first class. They were very aware of our (western style) needs and made every effort to make our trip comfortable and pleasant in a country so very different from our own.
I am in the process of sorting out photos - they are on the wrong machine at the moment! I have to move them across. But I shall send you some. What I would like to share is how this trip worked really well, despite the differences in cultures and lifestyle. And how well you at Travel China have understood how to make it all work! Well done!

I loved my trip! For the low price you pay, you get exceptional hotels, food and service. You don't really have to worry about anything. They take you to and pick you up from (and check you into) the sites, the hotels, and the airports. If anyone I know were planning to go to China, I would absolutely recommend this tour company.
The booking agent was very easy to communicate with. We paid in full ahead of time and received a good discount.
My favorite guide was Candy in Beijing. She had such a great personality. My least favorite guide was the man in Guilin. I cannot remember his name, but his English was not so good and he did not give us many options of what to do with our free time.
One recommendation is to have the guides be more clear on the options when you get to a site. For example, when you go to the Great Wall, say 'If you go to the left, the climbs are steeper, but if you go to the right, you will reach the highest tower.'
Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Thank you Selina,
Sorry I was late in responding as I was still traveling. Thanks for the service of your travel agency. I found everything good & well planned. Please convey my special thanks to Candy, she was exceptional among all guides. No grievance whatsoever for any Guides or drivers. All are exceptional. But only one thing I need to express my concern about, the shore excursions in cruise needs extra payment & not included, specially Fengdu ghost city. If in future you can include that in your tour cost, but it is only suggestion & not a grievance. All home visits are also pleasant.
Another thing I should specially mention about you Selina, that is our seat choices in High speed trains, they are so well planned, if it is not in first row, we could have face problem with our big luggages. Thank you once again. In future if I ever visit China for Harbin festival or Lhasa, I shall surely consult you.
