I had a layover that allowed me to experience Beijing in one day! After much research and consideration, I decided to go with Travel China Guide and do the Mutianyu Great Wall with them as I was in a pretty tight schedule and did not want to waste time going around in public transportation or getting maybe ripped off.
Anyways, it was great! I got to be with amazing fellow tourists, walk/run through Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (TOO crowded for my taste) and slide down the Great Wall from Mutianyu (the tobogan was the main reason I chose this path). Linda helped me through the booking - I had way too many questions because of the time (pick up spot, etc). William was our tour leader, he kept us going pretty fast and we laughed as we tried to keep up.
I´m a vegetarian and had advised so when booking so I didn´t run into any surprises. There was a little set back during lunch that was easily taken care of.
Thanks for everything!

We wanted to see the major sites and attractions in China and your company made it happen. The hotel accommodations were very nice and comfortable. We left the driving to them. We feel like we saw what we came for. The Great Wall, Terra Cotta soldiers, great food and big cities. What made it most pleasant was the excellent tour guides in each city. They each had their own style but were all very knowledgeable and really showed that they cared for us and wanted us to enjoy their cities. Linda was wonderful in Beijing, Celine in Xian was very informative. Nick in Guilin was very down to earth and showed his love for his home town. Ocean in Shanghai showed us all that he could in one long day.
It was a great trip and well worth it. Overall, I would highly recommend your agency to all of my friends.

Thank you very much for arranging this unforgettable trip to your country. Overall it exceeded our expectations. We got to see every major venue we had requested: Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Guilin, the Yangtze River (3 gorges cruise) and Shanghai.
The hotel accommodations and meals were excellent. The River Cruise accommodations were good, but more importantly, the river and gorge scenery was outstanding. A surprising "gem" was the Li river cruise in Guilin. This cruise gave us a real sense for why much of the Chinese calligraphy art has domed mountains.
Our leaders were uniformly very good. They provided good information, interesting insights into history, family and culture and were clear about the agendas for each day. Transfer between cities on flights and the fast train were pretty seamless in spite of busy airports and crowded bus station.
TravelChinaGuide had been recommended by a friend who had used them. He said we would be pleasantly surprised at their level of organization and ability to make this a good trip. He was right. Would highly recommend your company to my family and friends too.

I wanted to tell you I am very impressed by the service that my partner, Jean-Yves and I have received from our travel consultant, Kelly Wang. I was a bit nervous booking a big trip like ours entirely from a service found on the Internet. I am more accustomed to booking with a local office face to face. However, Kelly's attention to our file has definitely impressed me and has increased my confidence about Internet service.
Since my several email exchanges with her, I have recommended your organization to several friends. I am confident that our guided China experience will be just as satisfying. Thank you for reaching out to ask for our feedback so far.

My husband and I had a 8 days trip with my father through your company recently. I just wanted to pass on that both Mulan in Shanghai and Maggie in Beijing were excellent representatives in your company. They were both attentive to the needs of the group, showed us interesting things about the city and were full of knowledge about the areas.
Maggie was great at helping us find great places to photograph monuments and we have an excellent bunch of photos to remember our trip by. She was fabulous at ensuring the group saw everything and highlighting things of interest. She made our Beijing visit very fun with her bright and welcoming personality. Maggie also made sure that the group had cake and sang to celebrate my father's 60th birthday. I want to say a special thank you for this as it was the highlight of my trip.
Mulan went above and beyond! From getting us the tickets to the acrobatic show to ensuring everyone saw what they wanted to in shanghai. I really felt that when she took the four of us around, she catered to our needs and really cared about us as individuals.
I was most impressed with the catering by Mulan while Maggie also ensured that there was plenty of vegetarian food for my husband available. Mulan really went the extra mile ensuring Scott really got to taste a lot of what Chinese cuisine had to offer. Her selections for the meat eating guests were also interesting and allowed us to experience unique Chinese food in a way we could not at home. Delicious!
I want to thank the whole team for enabling this trip for my dad's birthday. It really has given us some memories that we will cherish. It was fantastic fun and we made loads of friends. I will be recommending TravelChinaGuide whenever I talk about my holiday.
