    This trip to China was one of our best trips. We travel with my daughter who is currently 12 years old. I am always concerned about safety and if she has fun too. I have to say I would recommend not only your travel agency, for all your help, but China in general as well. You helped us make sure that everything went smoothly by taking care of all our bookings in advance and answering all our questions before we traveled. We planned in many free days for rest but never once did we actually stop, we were busy everyday there was so much to see. The Chinese people are very kind, caring, helpful people and we look forward to traveling to China again! ... More

    Everything about our tour was perfect. Thanks for the careful services. Nearly all the meals were lovely. The only place that was not quite as good as the rest was the restaurants onboard the cruise ship - but this was mainly because the service was slow not because the food was bad in any way. The first lunch restaurant in Xian was by far the best, the food was absolutely delicious and I would recommend it to anyone, likewise the choice for the farewell lunch in Shanghai was also excellent. Again the food was lovely and it was really nice to choose from the menu ourselves. All the drivers were excellent - the cars were always tidy and clean and bottles of water freely available to us. I can not say how much we enjoyed having a car that the guide could call up and ask them to meet us whenever they had finished, it really made their trip. As said all the guides were fantastic, Candy in Beijing was very helpful and really made us feel welcome in Beijing. Tracey is probably the most cheery person I have ever met. My children are quite shy but she made their stay in Xian really enjoyable despite the rain! She was also very informative about our stops and made a real effort to interact with all of us. Keira in Chengdu was really funny. Amy in Shanghai was equally as nice. It was lovely to have a guide who so obviously loved the city she lived in, her enthusiasm for Shanghai came across in everything she told us. All in all each of the guides were excellent, but I would like to highlight Tracey's section as the part that really made my children and myself relax into the trip with her cheerful nature and smiling face. I would like to add that it was a lovely touch to meet our organiser in Xian, it certainly made it feel like we were not just dealing with a company but actual people. I would certainly recommend your company to friends in the future and hope to have the opportunity to use you again myself in the future. Thank you again Wendy and Ashley for organising the tour, your helpful emails were much appreciated while I was planning this trip. ... More

    First of all, I thank Vera Yu very much for recommending this tour. We have had a wonderful experience in 2 weeks with the 3 nights cruise and its organized daily local excursion tour. We also found the people aboard were very nice from the cruise staff to other passengers on board. The 3 nights and 2 and half days downstream to Yichang traveling time are perfect. Not too long and not too short. We were also very lucky with the weather. It only rains at night. Due to October being the autumn time, we had experienced some misty mornings. It provided with different type of scenery than clear days. Without your service and timely suggestion, we would not even be able to get on this particular cruise. Thank you so much! ... More

    On the whole we found the standard of guiding to be excellent. Over all the guides went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable, memorable and on occasions they went above and beyond what could ever be expected. The food we found to be wonderful and a great experience tasting local dishes. The quantity of food was always more than we could normally eat. The Peking duck would have to be the meal we would suggest not to miss. It is very hard to choose the best meal as they were all so wonderful. In all cases the cars and drivers were excellent. The cars were kept exceptionally clean and the drivers were always pleasant and well dressed, always on time and ready to help. We would like to thank you for all your attention to detail with regard to our holiday questions while we were planning this trip. We would also like to thank you for all your suggestions, help and guidance in making this our most memorable holiday and definitely a trip to recommend to our friends and a country we will definitely return to in the future. Everything worked so smoothly and we recommended Travel China Guide to people whilst we were travelling because you were so good and their planned trip was not of your standard. ... More

    In assessing how my experience transpired with your company, I- first of all- feel that it would only be fair to say that my goal in traveling throughout the country was to have a chance to integrate myself- as best as possible in the short time I had- with the people and culture of each place I went to in the country, so that I could experience the truth of what the country is really about. I am an adventure seeker and was expecting your company to assist me in that. That said, I will say that my experience with you folks was excellent. All of the guides were helpful and insightful regarding their respective cities. I had a particular fondness of John in Beijing, Rachael on the Yangtze River Cruise, and the young man in Xian (I feel silly that I cant remember his name at the moment). That is not to discredit the efforts of any of the others, but those folks really held good memories for me on my trip.
    The hotels and meals were all of excellent caliber as well. Additionally, they were all in excellent locations in every city (your crew couldn't have picked better spots), and were easy to cab or walk from to get to points of interest. Believe it or not, the hotels were actually a little too nice for me. I was really looking for something a little more rugged, but safe. About all I need is a good lock on the door and fresh water for drinking, which is easily solved by buying some water on the street. As noted, the meals were very good as well. I enjoyed the buffet Chinese breakfasts in the hotels and restaurants particularly well, as my dietary habits and tastes are very similar to those of the Chinese culture. I am a very health conscious eater, and the Chinese menus accommodated that excellently. Additionally, the guides were sensitive to that, and I appreciated it. Thank you! The restaurants were all fantastic, with wonderful service.
    The condition of the cars was excellent in each location, and service attitude of the driver in each city was good as well. I particularly enjoyed the drivers that would go above and beyond what was expected of them (for example: enjoy a meal with me or involve him/herself with the tour and my experience). Of particular note, once again- is the gentlemen in Beijing. Excellent service.
    Another thing about the guides was there willingness to allow for photos (I took many of them). They were all very patient and accommodating. The guide who was kind enough to pick me up at the airport in Chongqing even bought me some water before I got on the cruise, thus saving me money instead of having to purchase the water on the ship. Additionally, she explained much of the city in great detail, even though I only spent about 30 minutes with her.
    Additionally, each city offered some sort of show to go to, which I gladly did, almost every night. The guides were very accommodating to this, as well, and always had good ideas for shows to go see. We had a pleasant tour experience. Thank you.

    We just returned home from our China trip, it was a long time so it was good to be back home. The meals were very well arranged. We were always in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere, it was pleasant. The one meal that stood out the most was the Dumpling Banquet. The setting, food, and service with a smile and respect. Besides it was very good. For me quality of food goes along with the presentation and the service. For example the Beijing Duck was a fine place to eat, clean and the food very well presented. But the service was not there. We were left alone, nobody was around to help if we needed anything. Maybe they were too busy that day but this is the impression that the whole group got. Otherwise it was a good choice of a place to eat. All of our guides were very good. Their knowledge and attention to details was amazing. They each had their own style and the group got along well. They were always on time and did not mind going out of their way to help us. We were given fresh water daily. They gave us good advise about the locals but we felt that it was up to us, there was no pushing or forcing. The daily plan or agenda was always given to us before each day. Their English knowledge was very good. We had no problem to understand and communicate with both of them. We even learning some basic Chinese words and counting. We enjoyed it. Their knowledge about places was very accurate. We had a point by point explanation of the provincial history museum like we never had. Celine really had our attention. We will remember some of these explanations for a lifetime. Regarding the driver, we were very fortunate to have such caring and dedicated people with us. Going to a foreign country I think that it is important to feel safe in the transportation mode. If you take a taxi, well, this is a short ride and you may not feel too safe by the way he drive but with someone driving for a week you need to feel secure. All drivers were very good. They also got along good with the guides, very good relationship or partnership. While visiting I would at times catch the driver washing our windows, good attitude. We felt that the bus was taken care of. Our personal belongs were left in the bus often while visiting and again we all felt safe to do so. I would like to thank you very much for all the help that you gave me for this trip. All at TravelChina are very good and I would recommend it to everyone. ... More

    We traveled 14 days in small group to Beijing-Xi'an-Chengdu-Chongqing-Yangtze River Cruise-Yichang-Shanghai from US. The hotel in Beijing and the cruise are more like 3.5 or 4 star. Most of the tour guides were enthusiastic and accommodating. 1st day and the last day at Chengdu were all traveling and free time which the travel agency could have utilized the time better or spend less time there. The whole day was wasted on ride from Yichang to Shanghai on 7.5 hour bullet train. It would have been better to fly instead. We arrived in Shanghai so late that we only had 1 full day in Shanghai. We would have liked to stay in Shanghai little longer. The city is so clean and modern. The Yangtze River Cruise was little disappointing. The room was small, smelly, and no internet. Also if you don't go on optional excursion, you are stuck on the boat. They will not allow you to leave the ship. We had only one full day of seeing the gorges. Other days were just docking, traveling thru cities or doing excursion which we could have missed. Even though the hotels and cruise ships were non smoking, I don't think they enforce the rules which is disappointing. I am a vegetarian and the the guides tried to accommodate my diet and others who had allergy to certain foods. Travel china scheduled the guides on time whenever we traveled to next city and the visit to local homes and to the parks to see what the locals do were pretty eye opening. Overall, we were satisfied with the trip. ... More
