    The 5 days tour of Xiamen and Mount Wuyi was good! The spectacular seascape and exquisite Shuzhuang Garden in Xiamen and the natural scenery of the Mount Wuyi made me linger. I wanted to travel to Xiamen and Mount Wuyi next time with my parents!

    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

    My 3-day Xiamen tour to Mount Wuyi was full of fun and I was so happy to travel with the guide who was well informed, patient and affectionate. I enjoyed the bamboo raft cruising about 2 hours on the Nine-bend River in Mount Wuyi. The landscapes of mountains and rivers were charming and perfect for taking picturesque pictures!

    Our 5 days in-depth Xiamen tour itinerary of Mount Wuyi was full of “surprises”! All the guides held a positive attitude to solve the unexpected problems and the whole journey went smoothly. Our guide in Xiamen was professional and helpful to explain in detail and adjusted the schedule efficiently because of the heavy rain. And the guide in Mount Wuyi was humorous, knowledgeable and experienced. Thank you for your efforts and your thoughtful service, thumb up!

    I liked the Xiamen tour. When I visited Shuzhuang Garden in Gulangyu Island and saw the buildings and scenery, I couldn’t help but admire the artful design. The guide introduced that the designer constructed different buildings and views according to nature, light and geographical position. It was so wonderful! I also had a deep impression of the sacred Buddhist statues in the South Putuo Temple. I took a leisure walk around Zengcuo'an Village and experienced the local life to end my fulfilling trip. That’s awesome! ... More

    I spent a pleasant Xiamen tour! I learned that the Shuzhuang Garden was one of the must-see scenic spots in Gulangyu Island. The distinctive and enchanting garden didn’t disappoint me. There was a Piano Museum housed many historic and modern fine pianos. People who liked playing the piano may fall in love with the museum. I saw many people prayed in the South Putuo Temple and knew some Buddhist culture. It was very interesting!

    I was very satisfied with the Xiamen tour. The itinerary was reasonable. The first attraction of my tour was the Shuzhuang Garden in Gulangyu Island. The guide introduced the history of the garden while visiting. The buildings integrated with the natural scenery well. I felt very relaxed and enjoyable when I walked in the garden. A Piano Museum was also located inside. It’s incredible that I saw a gold-plated piano and a large upright piano. The excellent traditional puppet show, as well as the fine-sounding Nanguan music performance in the Hi Heaven Villa, should not be missed. Huihe Stone Cultural Park was a good palace to enjoy exquisite stone buildings and superb stone sculptures. ... More
