Thank you for TCG because we enjoyed our trip to Beijing, Xian, Shanghai and making this trip a memorable one with my family and new friends from Puerto Rico, South of Africa and Indonesia.
All is excellent: Helpful guides (Sara, Tracy, Rachel), good drivers, clean bus, excellent hotels, delicious and local meals (but not at Xian because too salty), fix schedule, hospitably local family, best flight times and gift.
What that your said "why choose us" All is right. This was my third trip to your country but the first with TCG. That's way I can say this is the best one. Highly recommended. Thank you.
I will tell to my friends and family about this trip and TCG. I hope TCG will become the best tour in china. "Jiayou".

It has been a busy month for us since we returned from our wonderful trip. We have been telling our friends about what a great trip we had, and showing them some of our many wonderful photographs. Our tour with Travel China Guide was excellent in every way, and you helped us very much with our planning and preparations.
It was easy paying our deposit with PayPal, and our final payment by wire transfer went very smoothly as a result of the detailed information you gave us. We were able to get our visa easily through the Visa for China service in Vancouver, using the letter and information you supplied. We found a lot of very useful information on your website about the local attractions at each destination, as well as information on what to pack and the weather we could expect. All of this helped us feel comfortable that we were well prepared for our trip.
We had excellent guides and drivers at each of our destinations. The guides were all very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the local sights and history. We were always met promptly at the airport and they helped us check into our hotels. The visits of each city were excellent, and filled with wonderful attractions. All our guides made an extra effort to make sure we enjoyed our time, and they all requested our feedback on the form you supplied, and gave us privacy to fill it out.
We found the hotels to be very comfortable, with delicious and extensive breakfast buffets included. The restaurants we were taken too were excellent as well, and it was nice to be able to enjoy the local food in each area. We especially liked the meal at the local family home in Xi'an, the dumpling dinner (with the Tang Dynasty show) in Xi'an, and the traditional hot pot restaurant we went to in Chengdu.
We are glad we chose you and definitely recommend your company. Thank you so much for making our vacation a memorable one!

Highly recommended Travel China guide tour agent. We had joined the group in Nov for 8 day trip (Beijing- Xian- Shanghai) with family and friends. The hotels selected were high end hotels (4*/5*) with continental and Chinese breakfast, rooms and ambiance were perfect. Guides were knowledgeable. They would even help us with recommendations to buy souvenirs, how to bargain, and food to try. Lunch and dinner mentioned in the itinerary were high end restaurants selected with wide spread of authentic food. All in all, we loved the trip and special thanks to you for making our visit a memorable one.
Kudos to TCG for the professional service extended.

I have many positive comments to leave for you. I would like to pat special mention to Sara, our first guide. Among our group, we rated Sara as being the best and the guides went downhill from there. But Jacky and the other guy were quite up to the task. It was just that Sara was a standout.
As the standard of guides went downhill, during the tour, so the standard of the hotels rose as we progressed. But once again, that is only being very critical and all hotels were very good.
The places we went to and the sites we saw were amazing and plentiful. I think we even went to more places than advertised in the brochures. The days were always very full on, but also very interesting. The guides knew their stuff and provided a lot of information about the areas we were visiting.
The only problem to complain about was the early plane flight from Beijing to Xian. It almost caused a mutiny, but some light hearted banter from some of us other passengers smoothed things a bit. But it was an early start after a big day prior and then another full on day. I reckon everyone was glad to finally get into the hotel that night. Jacky tried explaining that there were only limited flights into Xian so we had to be satisfied with that.
But all in all, a very enjoyable trip. I learnt so much more about China and want to come back. If you remember, I was there over a week early to attend my son's wedding in Jiutai where I met friends and family of the bride. Although language was a problem naturally, we made do with a translator app on my phone and were able to communicate very well. My son and myself hit it off well with family and friends and have open invitations to come back next year and they will take us to the ski fields. There are some coming to Australia to visit us for Christmas, so we will see what happens.
I have already raved to my friends about how great the trip was and have passed on your contact details. I hope my friends will go to your country to experience the same enjoyment as I did and I am sure that they will make contact with you.
Thank you to yourself and all your staff for such a memorable time.

Many thanks for a wonderful and most enjoyable tour in China.
This has been an exceptionally well organized trip - from my first email to your company, to our final departure from our last hotel in Hong Kong. I have only praise for all the people who worked so hard to make our visit so memorable. It has also been exceptionally good value. The hotels that we stayed in were excellent. The buses that we travelled on were clean and in good condition. The restaurants that we were taken to were first class. The shows/entertainment were most enjoyable. Overall it was an excellent experience.
And of course I have to mention our guides. They all worked very hard, and some very long days, to ensure that we were well looked after. We were kept well informed about where we were travelling. Great detailed information. Lots of stories and good humor. All-in-all, they were excellent.
We especially enjoyed our visits to the local families. When staying in international hotels we can be cut off from getting to know local people, but the visits that we made to local houses gave us a glimpse into local peoples' daily lives. Our visit to the farm on route from Yangshuo to Guilin was delightful. These absolutely wonderful country people made us feel so very welcome. Please thank them for allowing us into their home.
So Wendy, I find it difficult to summarize our trip in one quotable sentence. For many years we had heard stories about the Great Wall, beautiful countryside, spectacular river cruises and fantastic cities and indeed China lived up to our expectations. When we finally decided to visit the country and we searched the web for a travel company to help us, we found TCG. Now we are so happy that we decided to travel with TCG. We can say that it has been a most memorable and enjoyable experience, and we definitely can recommend this company for outstanding service and value.
