    I really appreciated our guide. He arranged everything perfectly. The members of our group were all lively and cheerful young travelers. We were very happy to get along with each other. I strongly recommended the beautiful scenery of Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge. Although the 3-day Zhangjiajie trip was a little tiring, it was full of joy and happiness.

    The Zhangjiajie tour was awesome! We visited the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon and the Yellow Dragon Cave. The beautiful scenery of the karst landform left us a deep impression! Nature was so great! There were also waterfalls. Under the sunshine, we were happy to see the rainbows.

    In general, we were very pleased with the service. The guide we met at the airports was friendly and the driver was helpful! What an unforgettable Zhangjiajie tour!

    The tailor-made itinerary of 4 days in-depth Zhangjiajie tour was up to our expectations. The food was hearty, especially the dessert was delicious. Our hotel was first-classic and we had good rests. The guide was very patient and I was looking forward to the next trip with TCG.

    We got a reasonable schedule and patient guides. The travel members were friendly and we were in a harmonious atmosphere all the way. The 5 days Zhangjiajie tour from Shanghai was full of fun and I had to say that the trip provided excellent quality and an affordable price. Luckily, there were less than 10 tourists in our group, and everyone was well taken care of. The Golden Whip Stream in Zhangjiajie was an unmissable attraction. The beautiful canyons made us linger. Highly recommend the Zhangjiajie trips arranged by Travel China Guide! ... More

    A good 3-day Zhangjiajie tour arrangement! I was impressed by the spectacular waterfall, a large scale of primeval forests and rare animals. Wandering in the tranquil valley gave me a comfortable feeling. I had such a wonderful experience thanks to our excellent tour guide and experienced TravelChinaGuide. Also, Vicky was a professional travel consultant answering many of my questions.

    Wei Fang was an EXCELLENT tour guide! We were traveling in the off season, and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the best things to see during the winter time. She was flexible when we said we wanted to spend time doing certain things, she was able to find us fantastic local restaurants, and she constantly impressed us with her kindness.

    One example: she asked us if we wanted to try a special duck blood cuisine that the locals ate. I was excited to try it, but I told her (somewhat jokingly) that I really like ducks, so she should lie and tell me it's chicken when we have it. Two days later, at a restaurant, she smiled and introduced the dish as "the special chicken dish from this region," and we all had a good laugh (and it was delicious!). It may seem like a small thing, but it was so kind, and it meant a lot to me that she was so attentive.

    This is a great service, and we'll definitely book again the next time we go to China!

    I ordered this 1-day Zhangjiajie trip without any preparation on TCG. I was worried about the bad experience at first, but when I met our professional guide, I knew it would be an amazing trip! The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Scenic Area was a must-see destination in Zhangjiajie where I appreciated the remarkable landscape and tried walking across Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge (I’m a little bit afraid of heights)! The gorgeous landscape eased my fears and the friendly guide took many memorable photos for me. A thumbs-up for guide’s meticulous service! ... More

    We were a little tired but we would regret it if we hadn’t been to Zhangjiajie! Its beauty was what we extremely wanted to share with our friends and family. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon exceeded our high expectations. The waterfalls were splendid! There were dense forests and fresh air. We were very relaxed! The guide was another highlight! He punctually picked us up at the airport and transferred us to the hotel. On the way to the hotel, he told us something funny to remove our embarrassment and strangeness away. So kind of him! We had a very good memory on our 4 days private Zhangjiajie in-depth tour! ... More
