    I was a free independent traveler before because I thought I could grasp time and choose spots according to my own preferences. It was my first time to join a tour group, and I found many advantages. My friends and I booked a Pingyao Ancient Town tour, and the whole trip was very satisfying. Reasonable itinerary, enthusiastic tour guide and comfortable accommodation all added great joy for our trip. Our guide was easy-going and the driver was polite. Their high-quality service gave me wonderful memory of Shanxi. Very appreciated their hard work, I would use TCG for my next trip! ... More

    Pingyao Ancient Town has a long history and deep culture deposits. We strolled along the Ancient Ming-Qing Street, and the houses and shops on both sides remained the architectural style of Ming and Qing Dynasties. The street was full of tourists, prosperous and busy. We also appreciated some novelty items in boutique shops. Thanks to our guide's great arrangement, we enjoyed this trip and had a profound impression on this town.

    It was my first time to travel to Shanxi with my wife. Our trip began with the Pingyao Ancient Town, an ancient city with deep Jin cultural background. We appreciated special architecture with a history of over thousands of years and learned its history from our tour guide. The guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional. She arranged a reasonable schedule and booked a special and beautiful inn for us. In general, the Pingyao Ancient Town was worth visiting! I recommend you to choose TCG for your trip. ... More
