    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!

    Above all, thanks for Doris’s perfect arrangement of our 4-day Pingyao tour to Datong. We had a very conscientious guide, and there was no problem with the communication between us. She also gave us helpful advice about our next trip to Xi’an in China. The car was always clean and the driver was very friendly and skillful.

    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!

    This Pingyao Ancient Town trip had reasonable arrangements, good accommodation and vehicles. We were not very tired after one day’s travel. Very thankful for the careful and responsible service of our tour guide. She introduced this ancient city in detail and we had a deep understanding of its architectural style and feature. At first, I was worried that there would be a mandatory shopping. But, the fact showed that no shopping detour happened in our group. Our guide also recommended some economic and delicious specialty to us, so kind. I really recommend you to choose TravelChinaGuide! 5 Stars!! ... More

    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
