    A wonderful Xiamen tour! The Shuzhuang Garden in the Gulangyu Island was superb! It was amazing that we were able to see an incredible seascape from there. We appreciated various pianos and watched a piano improvisation in a Piano Museum inside. That’s so good!

    The knowledge guide explained the South Putuo Temple for us. It was still popular with pious people since it had been built for a long time. The majestic Buddhist statues and ancient buildings deserved a careful visit. I also learned the local history in Hulishan Battery scenic spot. I wanted to visit Xiamen with my family next time. ...

    I think the earthen buildings in Yongding were more magnificent than those in Nanjing County. There were many rooms inside and people lived there, which was like a big family. The stunning Shuzhuang Garden in Gulangyu Island was worth seeing as well. A fantastic Xiamen trip!

    A leisurely Xiamen tour. The Shuzhuang Garden in Gulangyu Island was very beautiful. There were traditional pavilions, terraces, open halls, lakes, and rockeries as well as western architecture. No matter the inside garden scenery or the outside sea view was stunning. I enjoyed strolling around the garden. The guide’s explanation was very interesting, which made me better understand the unique architecture. Jimei Study Village which had local architectural style and western features also deserved a visit. A lot of stone carvings and reliefs in Turtle Park also surprised me! ... More

    The itinerary was reasonable and not in a hurry. The daily travel route went smoothly according to the description. I visited the huge and well-preserved Tianluokeng Earthen Building Cluster. The guide introduced that the earthen buildings were usually built in round or square shape with many rooms on each floor. Such kind of building style was so unique and I saw it for the first time. Yongding possessed various towers in different periods. When I visited the towers inside, I could feel the spirit of unity of local residents. I liked the earthen building very much! I was very satisfied with the Xiamen tour!!! ... More

    The itinerary of the 3 days Mount Wuyi tour was reasonable and tight. Mount Wuyi was very beautiful. We took a bamboo raft to cruise the Nine-bend River while appreciating the natural scenery of the river in the two banks. It was so wonderful! I saw another kind of the beauty of Mount Wuyi when it was embraced by the clouds when I stood on the Heavenly Tour Peak. A joyful trip!

    All the attractions included in our 5 days Xiamen tour were very elaborately arranged. The accommodations in Xiamen and Wuyi Mountain were both well-pleasing. I preferred the Pan Pacific Hotel in Xiamen, which offered great location, rich & delicious meals. We also could overlook the beautiful coastal scenery in our high-rise room. A fantastic experience!

    Both guides were dedicated. Each had his own good part. Their introductions were quite clear and detailed. The tour guide of Wuyi Mountain was more interesting. Besides, our consultant was quite patient and considerate, giving us a good service from start to finish! ... More
