    It was a real pleasure meeting our consultant Kelly in Xian. I appreciate the excellent response I received from her from the very beginning of planning our China trip. As for the tour, I can't say enough about it. Everything went so smoothly that I couldn't believe it. The tour was a very pleasurable experience and everything was taken care of for us from the moment we landed in Hong Kong. The hotels were superb! The arranged meals were excellent Chinese cuisine. I think the food in Beijing was the best that we had. The guides were knowledgeable and fun. We really appreciated the water that was always available from the guides. Their English skills were very acceptable and we had no trouble communicating. The guides were very accommodating as well. One of our party needed antacids in Xian and Fred found them and brought them back to the show. I must admit Candy in Beijing was our favorite. She understood our sense of humor the best. The drivers were very nice and helpful and vans were all very comfortable and clean. This group tour made our trip to China a trip to remember!!!! Thank you so much. Travelchinaguide.com will be very highly recommended to all of our friends!!! ... More

    We arrived back in Melbourne today, we have had a wonderful holiday.

    We particularly enjoyed our stay in China with Karlie-we felt that the tour was extremely well organized and as we expressed in our questionnaires we were very impressed with your organization and would definitely use your service again if the need arises (and would recommend you to all our friends). We were truly shown a great time and we were very impressed with our tour guide in Xian, she understood our needs. Our guide in Xian was fantastic and accommodated our needs. Whilst our guides are incredibly well learned, sometimes we just wanted to look at the sights and not be bombarded with facts - she was aware of this! All in all this tour was a life changing experience and we thank you very much. ... More
