    We visited many cities during this Xinjiang tour. I had a deep impression on the beautiful scenery along the way. The responsible and experienced guides arranged the accommodation and itinerary well. The cars were spacious and comfortable with yogurt and fruits supplied for us. Even taking a long ride, we still felt very steady and relaxing. Xinjiang was so unforgettable that I would go to Xinjiang next time!

    Xinjiang was so beautiful! I admired the pure beauty of Karakuri Lake. The Kumtag Desert was worth to see by riding a camel.

    We paid a special home visit to a local Uyghur family in Kashgar Old Town and enjoyed some delicious local food. It was amazing! The restaurants were perfect with a good environment and delicious food. Finally. I’d like to thank the guides’ hard work. It was a pleasant Xinjiang tour!

    The experienced guides served us thoughtfully and considerately. They strictly fulfilled the travel contract with a reasonable schedule. It was not easy to describe the beauty of Xinjiang in words. The local people were very friendly and enthusiastic, which was more impressive than the scenery. This trip gave me a deeper understanding of Xinjiang. I was pleased with the Xinjiang tour! TravelChinaGuide would be my top choice if I travel to China next time!!

    The Inner Mongolia trip was very enjoyable! When it rained in the morning, we were a little worried that we wouldn’t be able to explore the scenery of the prairie well. Our guide kept us from worrying. Surely, the grassland was more beautiful after the rain, and the rainbow was gorgeous!

    Special thanks to our guide, a native Inner Mongolian, for his detailed explanations along the way. We enjoyed a good time on the Inner Mongolian grassland!

    I was pleased with the Xinjiang tour! The beautiful scenery of Xinjiang was worth to pay a visit. I was satisfied with the meals and accommodation. The consultors answered our questions patiently and offered many helpful suggestions. We didn’t feel very tired in comfortable and big cars when we rode for a long time.

    Our tour guide said that although Xinjiang was a vast and sparsely populated area in China, its scenery was absolutely no less beautiful than that of other provinces in China. First thank TCG for professionally arranging such an amazing 4-day Xinjiang tour to Urumqi & Turpan!

    The views we visited at the Heavenly Lake had been one of my most unforgettable travel experiences! Its snowy mountains and alpine lakes were so enchanting and impressive! And we also learn some interesting facts at the Ancient City of Jiaohe. According to the guide’s introduction, we knew that it was the largest city in the world built entirely from the earth. Very amazing!

    Overall, this Xinjiang trip was fabulously organized by TCG and the hotels were much better than our expectations. Thanks a lot!

    An 8-day Xinjiang tour brought us a unique travel experience! We visited so many attractions, some better than others, but all good. I liked the Kashgar trip to Karakuri Lake most. The reflection of snow-capped mountains on the lake was a gorgeous view impressing me deeply. The guide had a good attitude in serving travelers.

    It was a good experience of the 8-day Xinjiang tour itinerary of Kashgar, Turpan and Urumqi! The guide was sociable, dependable and energetic. I was not used to eating mutton with a strong smell from Xinjiang, but the western buffets arranged by the hotels were to my taste. Overall, the attractions were very rich and we had a good experience except for being a little tired.
