    We were most impressed in how the entire journey was handled. Having booked it over the internet, there was a concern as to whether it will happen but it did. Everything that was stated in the itinerary was met. We enjoy our adventure to China and were pleased to offer our reviews and suggestions to help others who intend to take the trip.

    Guides and drivers were all committed to please and ensure that all our needs were met. The guides were showing a good knowledge about the attractions and confined to answering all our questions. They were all pleasant and that made the vacation even more enjoyable. We especially enjoy our stay with the guide in Xian. I only have a suggestion. We were served too many dishes at lunch. I think the guides were interested in ensuring we got enough dishes. I would have preferred less with higher $ value. I think they were conscious that there is a limit. Drivers have a good driving skills and cars are clean and comfortable. Sheraton in Xian was better than the hotel in Beijing. We would recommend the tour to our friends who wish to visit China and will remember this happy travel experience. ... More

    My mother and I had a chance to join this organized group tour, which has been far exceeded anything we expect. The guides were wonderful and they made the tour especially wonderful for us. The hotels, and the restaurants were all great. We are grateful to Selina for making special preparations for our vegetarian meals as I am sure it was difficult in a group tour. The drivers and cars and schedules all went smoothly. I am enthralled with China and hope to return again for an extended period next year. Because of this tour I feel that my eyes, mind and heart have been opened, I couldn't have asked for a better educational and entertaining experience. I will recommend TRAVELCHINAGUIDE to others and use it again. ... More
