    Each guide was outstanding! They were flexible, gracious, and always on time and ready to go. Our heartfelt thanks to Richard, Jesse and Carol. The meals were fascinating, and we appreciated the opportunity to sample foods that we would never again see at home. The dumpling restaurant in Xian will be remembered forever, as well the roast duck in Beijing. I have only praise for the hotels. Every detail was perfect. I don't think I've ever had such fine accommodations! The vehicles were fine, the drivers were careful and skilled. I would never personally drive in China since I want to live a little longer. Thank you for such outstanding high quality service. You have every right to be very proud of your staff and your guides. ... More

    We had an EXCELLENT experience with our recent group tour of China. There were no negative aspects and often they exceeded our expectations. We hope they will be able to get more participants for future tours (we are a group of 5). For us it was great to have that much individual attention but we are sure that TCG needs to have more people to cover the overhead. All of the guides did a superior job. They were all knowledgeable and took care of most of our requests. They should ALL be prepared [and encouraged] to be flexible with the schedule. [EG: To accommodate the weather conditions and/or local circumstances.] ... More
