    This tour does Shenzhen AND Guangzhou, which wasn't clear to me. The school and jade factory (boring) are in Shenzhen, then a LONG drive to Guangzhou and LONG trainride back. But worth it!

    You start your day 7am and return to your hotel at 1130pm it was such a long day and you spend 80 of your day travelling to and from places. The kindergarten was good but not worth a stop. The terracotta warriors were very disappointing and is just really a stop to sell you jade jewellery. The panda stop was also disappointing they were sleeping and thats all u get to see would of been better to spend more time at the zoo looking around. Then you spend the next 3 hrs driving to Guangzhou having lunch at 4pm, also disappointing cold food, holes in table cloths etc, then from there we walk to the market which was good and then drive to the temple which was also good. Then you drive to the train station and wait there for an hour or so till you catch the train back to Hong Kong. The day would be much better if you caught the train both ways to Guangzhou and spent more time seeing the local attractions. The tour guides for the day were very informative and helpful. But be aware they do ask for a tip which I thought was a bit much especially how expensive the tour is and there are three of them to tip.

    In Guangzhou, we had dimsum lunch which was tasteless and cold. It also caused my diarrhea after I arrived Hongkong. The jade shop should be scrapped altogether as it was a waste of time. We were rushed at Sun Yat-Sen Memorial last stop before the train station back to Kowloon and did not have time to take good photos. The local tour guide in Shen Zhen/Guangzhou was hard to understand his English. Overall, it was not a good tour.

    Only negative was this is a very long day, 16 hours from start to finish, would be beneficial if you could join the tour at the ferry terminal as was 2 hours from being collected to getting on ferry. Guides were extremely knowledgeable.

    This tour was amazing!

    Alex, Albert and Bill the driver were great. A lot of information provided in a friendly and passionate way. A long but well timed day that gives you just a taste of China. What made this trip was one wonderful guide, Alex, accompanying the group from beginning to end.

    While visiting China was fascinating, the Viatour guide Michelle rushed us through every location except a very small Jade museum with one terracotta warrior that then opened up to be a Hugh jewelry store, where we were given more then enough time to shop! Our tour started out with a sales pitch to buy a map and photos of what we were going to see that day along with a set of chopsticks. Most people in our group did not buy that. Our Dim Sum lunch which was delicious was very rushed. In and out in 20 minutes. When we went to visit the Pandas at a beautiful zoo, we took a few shots of the bears and then hurried back on the bus....never to see anything else at the zoo. When we went to see a monument and wanted to go inside, she told us no one could enter because they were having an important meeting inside that day, not sure that was true since I saw tourists all around the building. All in all, visiting China was fascinating but we would have preferred a tour that was not a forced march!

    Very interesting trip with knowledgeable guides Michelle and Richard who looked after us really well. The trip had lots of variety. A highlight was the kindergarten, as well as the history of the region.
