    This tour has been exceptional to date and excellent value for money. The guides and drivers have been excellent in both Beijing and Xian. They are very professional, their knowledge amazes us. The tour we took was a small group tour, it was much cheaper than with other tour groups but the quality of the service has been exceptional value for money.

    I would like to say thanks to all the staff who made our holiday in China a great success. The arrangements they made for us were exceptional and very professionally arranged. The group was very impressed with the way our trip to Xian was organized. It was a highlight of our trip to China.

    On our arrival, our guide, Lily waiting for us at the airport, the tours organized to ensure we saw as much as possible in a day. The lunch was an unexpected highlight of the tour, the food was fantastic. The high speed train back to Beijing was a wonderful experience and very comfortable.

    Our guide, Lily was wonderfully informative about the sights we visited and everyone was very impressed with her communication skills and her high standard of English conversation. Lily certainly made our trip to Xian a very memorable experience. I had visited China 30 years ago and I had been to Xian before the terra cotta warriors were revealed to the world. The changes in China since then are unbelievable. I would have no hesitation in recommending China as a holiday destination and the services of travelchinaguide to people.

    Once again, thank you for all of the wonderful efforts to ensure our group had the opportunity to visit China in such a short time. I hope to return to China with my family to visit some of the other places including Shanghai and Guilin.

    Thank you to TCG for the diligent planning of our China trip and for the excellent service of the guides and drivers. We found our guides to be very knowledgeable about the sites, history and culture. They were willing to assist us with every need. The restaurants that were chosen for us were exceptional and the variety of the food far exceeded our expectation. We plan to engage their services for our next travel vacation in China and to recommend them to our friends.

    Thank you for a vacation that was "NO. 1", thanks to the excellent guides and drivers. The shows, accommodation, meals and expert knowledge was simply superior. Juliet in Beijing and Lily in Xian were "the best" guides, thank you. Our drivers, both Mr. Chens were excellent. Mr. Chen in Beijing also had a great singing voice making car travel enjoyable. Mr. Chen in Xian had recently lost his Mother and he was understandably a little quiet at first, however he proved himself to be a true professional and looked after us wonderfully. Every aspect of the tours in Beijing and Xian were "most memorable". The Dumpling Feast and especially the show following was absolutely "first rate". Thanks again for the gift and for the patience with me in organizing our China tours, Joan. ... More
