    Posted on November 02, 2018
    We arrived safely in the Netherlands after our wonderful vacation in China and all arranged by Wendy, a very professional travel consultant. We appreciate all the work she did for us. We will recommend our friends here if they want to go to China to use Travel China Guide to arrange their tour. We liked the food and found it to be excellent. The meals arranged were sometimes a little bit too much. Probably because we usually do not eat so much. All the guides are professional and can speak good English and also their knowledge about the culture are good. The drivers are very professional, good and most important of all they drove safely. We are never late to the airport and they arrange the baggage for us to / from the hotel etc. I do think that the best drivers are the drivers in Xi'an and in Beijing. ... More
