    This Pingyao Ancient Town trip was worthwhile and beyond our expectations. The itinerary was excellent and everything ran very smoothly. We paid a visit to Ancient Ming-Qing Street, where we felt the flourishing businesses and appreciated the ancient buildings. Various kinds of shops were lined along the streets, all built with stones and bricks, remaining the architecture style of Ming and Qing dynasties. Other spots like Rishengchang Exchange Shop, Ancient City of Pingyao, and Pingyao City Wall were fantastic and charming… We not only appreciated traditional Chinese culture but also felt the life scene of ancient people. Our guide worked very hard to meet our needs and we were satisfied with itinerary, meals, and hotels. Highly recommend! ... More

    I traveled to Pingyao Ancient Town with my parents and 5-year-old niece. Many thanks to our guide, she helped me to look after them. Her good knowledge and excellent explanation helped us to learn a lot about this city. On the Ming-Qing Street, we were lucky to watch folk artists performing. We were attracted and really admired their talents and endeavors. It was a cheerful trip. Thanks!

    I booked a 4-day Pingyao tour with my parents on Travel China Guide. We were very satisfied with this group tour. The guide took good care of my old parents. The hotel was of high quality and the buffets were palatable. We had a plan to make another trip to Xi’an on TCG!

    The Pingyao Ancient Town tour was very wonderful. One pity was that I had a fever in the car. Thanks to our warmhearted guide, she bought the drug for me and I recovered under her care. In the evening, she helped me to change a warmer room as I felt cold in the prior room. She was so nice and responsible. Besides, there was no forced shopping. It was really my best tour!

    This Pingyao Ancient Town tour was very wonderful. The guide offered us a reasonable itinerary arrangement and comfortable hotels. There was no compelled shopping. When visiting Security Guard Company, we saw many ancient boxes and weapons and knew the history of the security industry. In ancient China, the staff in this company benefited by guarding and delivering goods for clients. It was really a cultural tour. We were very satisfying!
