    The 6 days Beijing-Shanghai tour was a pleasant experience. We appreciated the famous spots of these two cities and felt their different charms. Very grateful for our kind guides, our itinerary was well organized and customized to our preference. And the meals and accommodation were superb and worth the price. What most impressed me was China’s high-speed railway, so quick speed! An unforgettable experience! TCG was reliable! I hope to visit other cities in China if I had another opportunity.

    Our 6 days Beijing-Shanghai tour was very pleasant and full. So lucky to meet two responsible guides Lily (Beijing) and Tong. They arranged a perfect itinerary for us and led us to appreciate the luring landscape of these two cities. The pickup and transfer service was on time. I liked the cruise on the Huangpu River, where the skylines of Shanghai gave me a profound impression. In general, we enjoyed this tour! Thank the wonderful service offered by TCG!

    The 6 days Beijing, Shanghai trip was totally enjoyable! The itinerary was well planned and customized to our preference. We visited the Forbidden City, Mutianyu Great Wall, and the Summer Palace... Those buildings were all majestic and splendid! The later Shanghai trip was also pleasant. We took a high-speed train and experienced its superb speed, so quick! The cruise on the Huangpu River gave me a profound impression. The Shanghai Museum was also interesting. Overall, this trip was worthwhile. Many thanks to our Beijing guide Sara and Shanghai guide Jimmy! I would recommend them to my friends! ... More
