    What an amazing Guilin day tour! At the airport, we received truehearted greetings from our tour guide, Shirley. Her best and thoughtful and professional service gave me more expectations about the Guilin, Li River Cruise itinerary.

    The Guilin day tour was full of activities and was entertaining. It was cloudy that day when we took a cruise to view the picturesque scenery along the Li River. Green mountains and white clouds were reflected in the blue and clean water. We sitting in the cruise were like flying through the clouds, just like birds flying in the sky. Well, our tour guide Shirley was expressive, easy-going and reliable. We thought highly of her service. Much more satisfaction.

    Excellent service. Everything Travel China Guide arranged worked like clockwork. Two train travels, one on Business class, which everyone should try. The train tickets were delivered to the hotel and waiting for me when I arrived. A very nice convenience. Two plane flights, A Li River cruise, A Longji rice terrace tour with car and guide. Kathy, the guide for the rice terrace tour was particularly good.
    I will be using your services again next year when I hope to return to the Longji area particularly.

    One improvement would be to advise me earlier on getting a sim card, and whatsApp and tipping. Those tips were sent to me, but after I had left for my trip. I didn't see them until I returned. Fortunately, while I missed tipping the driver I did tip Kathy. More internet access would've been nice with the sim card and whatsApp.

    I also appreciated the always quick response from Jessica and Angela. They were very helpful in the planning stage and when in China I had no problem reaching them by phone. They are two professionals who worked together very well.
