    What an unforgettable Zhangjiajie tour! From the explanation, we knew that primitive sub-forest was completely reserved and precious and unique plants could be discovered here. What amazing was that the forest coverage rate was up to 90%. There were towering old trees, tangling wines and scattering soft moss as well as stalagmites and clint. Also, our tour guide was responsible and earnest. All in all, we had great fun in the Zhangjiajie tour!

    With our tour guide company, not only did we had a clear and logical travel explanation but learned much knowledge about minority culture. Honestly, Xiangxi culture was so attracting and fascinating. I would like to have a chance to visit the unique minority Miao and Tujia national culture community again!

    Zhangjiajie enjoyed beautiful scenic sights. We had a tight schedule on the Zhangjiajie tour but it was really pleasant. Our tour guide was earnest and energetic who created a favorable atmosphere for us to talk and laugh on the way to the destination as if we had been familiar with each for many years. At the same time, she also told us about Miao Nationality's customs and taught us to speak the local language. It’s very interesting! Although I couldn’t remember what I had been taught, I was so happy. The only thing for an out was happiness. I got it! ... More

    In winter, Zhangjiajie was covered with snow. All the things were pure as far as your eyes could see. I loved the Zhangjiajie landscapes in winter. It was so attracting. It was a good Zhangjiajie tour that I could see different scenery in winter...But it was really cold!

    Ten-mile Gallery left me a deep impression and it was the tourism essence in Zhangjiajie. Along the two sides of the valley, there were abundant natural landscapes. When you traveled there, it was like a painting. It was so picturesque. Also, many stone landscape modeling were showing in the two sides. With our tour guide’s help, we had a fantastic Zhangjiajie trip!

    It was the first time for us to have a package tour in beautiful Zhangjiajie. We got our tour guide telephone numbers and asked him many questions before the trip. He was so nice and replied to us in detail before we set out. The itinerary was well planned and we really enjoyed it!
