    We had a wonderful trip with this 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.

    Thanks for a most interesting and memorable time in China.

    It has been a busy month for us since we returned from our wonderful trip. Here is our China tour small group reviews.

    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 they 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 they gave us. We were able to get our visa easily through the Visa for China service in Vancouver, using the letter and information they supplied. We found a lot of very useful information on their 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, 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 TCG and definitely recommend this company. Thanks for making our vacation a memorable one!

    We really enjoyed our Tour with Travel China Guide Tours They are well Organized. They took us to see things that we wouldn’t have visited on our own. All of the Tour Guides were exceptional. We enjoyed a 16 day tour. The Hotels were 5 star, buffet style breakfast were some of the Bests we ever enjoyed. Planes, Bullet Trains and The Shanghai Maglev Train were special experiences. I very much would recommend Them.

    Thank you all for a wonderful experience!!!! Our guides were wonderful! We felt that each one treated us as special guests. We were always promptly met at the airport or train station. Upon leaving each location, our guide escorted us either on to the train, or through ticketing at the airport. Everything was taken care of for us. The guides were all very personable, and we had a lot of fun with each one.
    Tina is very sweet, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Her English is very good. She welcomed us to China and made us feel at home. She went out of her way to make sure we had enough time in the Forbidden City. The driver here was very capable, safe, and the car was clean and comfortable.
    Tracy was our next guide. Tracy was very knowledgeable. Although all the guides were knowledgeable, Tracy was probably the most knowledgeable about the history of China and the sites were visited. Our driver was very capable, safe, and the car was clean and comfortable.
    Jerry met us promptly at the airport. Jerry also spoke very good English and was knowledgeable and friendly. The driver here also was capable, safe, and the car was clean and comfortable.
    Joey met us at the airport in Chengdu. Joey is very knowledgable and enthusiastic.
    In Chongqing we had David as our guide. David was very interesting. He is a very personable young man who spoke very good English, and is also very knoweldgeable and enthusiastic. Our driver for this part of the tour was exceptional. He was a very safe driver, the car was always clean and comfortable, and he made many stops for us to take photos. He occasionally made very good suggestions for photos. We were pleased that he was our driver for a long part of the tour.
    Next was Kevin accompanied us on the cruise who also was great. As the other guides, he was knowledgeable and fun.
    Joy was waiting for us as we stepped off the cruise ship. Joy also is very capable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun. Her English is very good. The driver also was very capable, safe, and the car was clean and comfortable.
    John met us in Shanghai. We visited all the sites that we wanted. John also was knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke good English. The drive also was very capable, safe, and the car was clean and comfortable. Our last few days in Shanghai on our own were great. John called us the night before we were to leave to confirm the time for the next day. He was at the hotel promptly and we were off to the airport.

    Here are my comments.

    1. I particularly enjoy a diversification of Nationality within the group as long as we can understand each other. In our group, we had a variety of needs, tastes, and cultural differences. To me these added to the overall enjoyment immensely.
    2. I think we spent about the right amount of time on various activities. I enjoyed, pretty well, every activity.
    3. I enjoyed the meals!! I probably ate too much!! I also enjoyed the Beijing Duck - they had the best looking room for us and they also decorated their food really lavishly - incredible and very tasty!! I would like to suggest that you plan smaller meals and perhaps fewer as well. For example, you should serve only continental breakfast at the Hotel and follow it up with an early Lunch (Slightly smaller in size) at about 12 noon.
    4. All our guides were wonderful and made our trip unforgettable:
    Maggie (Beijing) was very knowledgeable and she answered many questions about everyday life, people, politics, history, cultural, religious, ethnicities, etc. A great introduction to China!! She was patient with me when I almost got lost at the Great Wall - Thank you!!
    Rita (Xian) was a very happy person to be with. She made us smile and her Southern (Texan?) accent was very striking and humorous to us (Canadians).
    Arthur(Guilin) was the best!! He was happy, smiling, accommodating of needs and he was very helpful. My wife was quite sick and Arthur did not leave us by ourselves - he stayed to help, took us to a store to buy some Carbonated water (Sprite) - helped to get my wife to the Hotel Doctor. Thank you Arhtur!! He spent a lot of time at the Airport sorting out our Luggage in the way back from Guilin.
    Jack(Chengdu): He was good. Jack had a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed.
    Shelly (Shanghai) was, again, very accommodating to change itinerary as requested and yet to accommodate everybody. She guided us for the Shopping that we wanted to do.
    4. I was very happy with our tour busses and also the drivers. They did a great job!
    Thank you all!!

    We would like to compliment you on the complete service that TravelChinaGuide offers, as it is reliable and pick ups at various destinations are always efficient. We would certainly recommend this to friends as it enables you to enjoy China without any worries. All China hotels were good, especially the one in Beijing. All meals were good as well as the service. The Sezchuan meal in Beijing was very enjoyable. All guides were very well spoken with good pronunciation. All guides showed good knowledge of the places we visited with so much interesting information it would be nice at times to have it written down so you remeber the stories when you get back home. John in Beijing spoke very good English and certainly knew about the places we visited. We felt we were never rushed around and longer in each place would have been better- particularly the Summer palace. All cars were clean and tidy, especially the car in Xian. All drivers very courteous and competent. With reference to the Yangtze cruise - we upgraded to a suite as we felt the standard cabin was small especially after sumptuos rooms in the hotels. Anyway, we did enjoy the cruise. ... More
