    Travel China Guide did an outstanding job providing my wife and I English guided tours for three days in Beijing and two days in Shanghai. Both Susan (Sue) in Beijing and Helen in Shanghai were fantastic and gave us great tours information and counsel on other places to visit while we were on our own. They both went above and beyond normal duties to help make our visit more successful. An example for Sue was at the Great Wall where Sue went to bat for me on the Toboggan ride down and made sure I got the experience in spite of an age restriction. An example for Helen was teaching us how to use the Shanghai Metro that helped us get to our return train ride back to Beijing. There were many other times they made the difference on our tours. Our drivers were outstanding as well, but due to our in ability to speak Chinese we could not interact directly. Travel China Guide, Wendy Lee, did an outstanding job of setting up coordinating and setting up all our tours in both cities. We have already recommended Travel China Guide to friends and would definitely use them again. ... More
