    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.

    We had experienced guides and drivers on the 4 days Xinjiang tour to Urumqi. Very grateful to our guide for giving us detailed introductions of the dried corpse and Chinese historical relics in Xinjiang Regional Museum. The driver was STEADY & helpful.

    This Xinjiang tour was excellent! The guides arranged a reasonable itinerary. They could gave us timely help when something unexpected happened during the journey and met some extra requirements. The services were very considerate like taking family photos and helping to carry luggage. The cars were spacious and tidy. The attractions were extremely beautiful such as Heavenly Lake, Emin Minaret, and BezeklikThousand Buddha Caves.

    The guides and drivers were very nice, especially the driver in Turpan. He would stop the car to make us take photos if we come across some beautiful palaces. The itinerary was reasonable. We visit many attractive scenic spots and spent a good time. There was no shopping on the trip. I hoped such a good quality of the Xinjiang tour could be kept and became better!

    I was very satisfied with the Xinjiang tour and I left precious memories. The scenery was very beautiful. We passed through Gobi deserts, deserts, lakes, grasslands and snow-capped mountains. Xinjiang has a large temperature difference between day and night, it is better to take some thick coats.

    The itinerary of the Xinjiang tour was reasonable and every scenic spot was impressive. The Kumtag Desert was specular and the Kashgar Lake gave me a sense of peace and clearness. Flaming Mountain also deserved a visit. The quality of the food and accommodation was very high. It is recommended to take some snacks and water if you have a long ride. Xingjiang was a beautiful place. I would go there next time. Highly recommended!

    The Xinjiang tour was worthy to recommend. I visited the Ancient City of Jiaohe, Karakuri Lake, and Turpan. In particular, Karakuri Lake was a fairyland. Although sometimes we needed to take a ride, each of the group members was nice and never be later. What's more, the standard of food and accommodation was quite high in the foreign travel groups I had participated in. The guides were enthusiastic and responsible and introduced many Xinjiang customs. I'd think about visiting Xinjiang again in the fall. ... More
