  • We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, especially the Terracotta Warriors in Xian and the 2 local family visits, one n Beijing and one in Guilin. The pace was good and all our guides has an in-depth knowledge of their city. We loved Guilin Li River cruise and although we were warned about the food on the boat, it was sufficient. The heat in China is something to content with, but that is nature. I would not suggest so many museums this time of the year July as it is very crowded and difficult to enjoy. Also, although the factories we visited was informative, the pressure to buy sometimes left a bad taste in your mouth, especially the silk factory, which I would easily have skipped.
    I would like to extend a special thank you to Tracey in Xian, who found my ring I left behind at the hotel and the travel company who sent onwards to Shanghai. I would definitely recommend this trip as it is great value for money.

  • Our trip was very memorable, thanks to the tour guides and the itinerary organized. We had a very good overview of each city we visited. We even got close to the people and culture with market visits, museums and private home visits. The hotels provided were clean with excellent services. The food and restaurants in Beijing were excellent, in Xi'an and Shanghai were good, but the staff overwhelmed, the lunch on the cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo was fair, but good enough for the excursion.
    This tour is excellent for first-time visitors.
