I really had a wonderful time in your country and found your tour just enough to get a taste of China. The Guides were exceptional, a special mention for Lynda who helped my partner Yi when she fell sick (I couldn't have done that). I thought the last day in Shanghai was too busy although the river cruse was well worth it, maybe drop of 1 or 2 activities to give the traveler some hotel time before the cruise. But overall the trip was excellent!! And I would recommend using your company to my friends.

We really enjoyed our small group tour to China and much appreciated the services offered to us by the guides of TravelChinaGuide. They were all very knowledgeable and took time to look after us extremely well. The drivers were all helpful and very polite and the meals were generous and delicious. We will have no hesitation in recommending this company to friends who wish in future to visit this country.

First of all I would like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The guides were fantastic and the country is great. Was really pleased I got to see all the sights. The hotels were amazing and I was constantly surprised about everything I was getting that was inclusive. The trip is excellent value for money. It was very busy and fast paced and a little but more free time would have been appreciated. I have recommended it to a friend and I am definitely going to recommend that my family come on the tour as well.

We loved our trip, the guide Candy was very, very helpful and friendly. The places we went were wonderful and we felt very safe. We had never been on a group tour before and were pleasantly surprised. Candy was great - she always kept very good track of everyone and explained what we were seeing very well. I highly recommend her service - keep up the good work.

Thanks for a great trip. This is not a trip for those that don't like to exercise - we walked a lot!! As our guide Kevin said: "The tour of Beijing is rest for your spirit, not for your body!" One caution to all - wear walking shoes to the Forbidden City - lots of walking!!!

We had an amazing time in China as part of the small group tour including Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Yangtze River, and Shanghai. Everything was taken care of professionally so I was able to relax and enjoy the trip. The hotels were excellent, and the included lunches were very enjoyable. I loved all of the places we went and the guides that took us there. I am glad we went on the Yangtze River cruise because the scenery was spectacular! However, the ship itself was just mediocre at best as the food was nothing special and we could only leave the ship if on an excursion, even though it was docked for hours. All in all, I highly recommend this trip. I saw some amazing places and met some great people.

Our overall experience was excellent. We were very happy with our guides and with our itinerary. Compared to other friends that have visited China, I feel like the itinerary and value provided by this company were superior. I couldn't be happier with the experience offered by this company. Well done, TravelChinaGuide Tours.

All in all, a spectacular vacation. Just a couple of suggestions: we felt like we would have enjoyed more time at the summer palace in Beijing. In Xi'an, more time to explore the village at the Terra Cotta warriors as well as more time on the city wall. In Shanghai, more time at the museum. Less time at the various airports. Also would have loved to have the guides join us for at least one meal. I would highly recommend this tour group to anyone.

Actually I want to give you a 4.5 star rating. Your tours were very comprehensive and well planned. The hotel accomadations were very good, also the planned meals were excellent. The following tour guides were excellent and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time, they were: Tina in Beijing, Celine in Xi'an, Simon in Chengdu, and Kris in Shanghai. However, there were a few guides that were not so great, they walked much too fast and didn't look back to see who was still with them. They seemed to be in a hurry for no particular reason. Also, they didn't take the time to explain things as we went along. I'm speaking of John in Guilin and Benjamin in Chongqing. Benjamin was hurrying us along to get to the ship by 5:00 p.m. We then sat on the ship doing nothing for four hours, people were still checking-in at 8:30, we could have spent more time in Chongqing! Also, We didn't like that Benjamin looked at our comments about him in the survey, and then questioned why we gave him a poor review. Those remarks should be in a sealed envelope! Both of those two guides need to slow down a little and be more patient. One particular disappointment was the 7.5 hour high speed train to Shanghai. We didn't realize that we would have people standing in the aisles of the train, and between cars on the train. Apparently they bought "standing only" tickets, so they could stand wherever they want. The train cars were jammed with people, screaming children, smelly food, and general mayhem. You need to eliminate this trip and go back to an airline.
All-in-all we really enjoyed our selves and had memories to last a lifetime. If you make just a few small changes you would get that 5-star rating.
