Excellent trip with an extraordinary company! 100% sure that we will back to China with China Tours again!
I am a travel agent and I booked my clients ( 2 families including 4 adults and 5 teenagers) for a customized 7-day private tour of Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. China Tours was wonderful to work with in the planning stages. When my clients returned, they had extremely glowing reports about their experience. The tour guides were wonderful, knowledgeable, helpful, and timely. I would recommend using China Tours for any tour in China from a small itinerary to a very extensive one.
Just visiting (and climbing 5 Towers of) the Great Wall of China would've made this trip unbelievable but throw in Terracotta Warriors, Baby Pandas, Ancient Temples & The Bund & it was MAGNIFICENT!! My only gripe was that the food on the Cruise Boat was really quite poor. All the Guides were fantastic giving their own little pieces of knowledge across, Rosie in Chengdu was particularly good. So enthusiastic & lovely. The hotels were wonderful! Got upgraded twice to suites 🙂 I would highly recommend using this company as it's got very VERY high standards.
10-days Beijing-Xi'an-Gulin-Shanghai: Every promise ChinaTours made they kept! They met me at airport at 1am with a smile and private comfortable car. They promised a tour group with no more than 12-people. Our tour group had a total of 7-people (perfect size) and the van was roomy, comfortable and climate controlled. The tour guide in Beijing was named King Kong and he was incredible. He was very knowledgable about "all things Beijing, Great Wall, Tiannamen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, etc" he also suggested GREAT authentic Chinese lunch venues for the group. The train from Beijing to Xi'an was a 4.5 hour smooth comfortable bullet train. Our next guide, Helen was right there (smile on her face) on schedule, waiting at the train station with a roomy, comfortable,climate controlled van (plenty of room for 7-people). The terracotta warriors were amazing and Helen knew how to get us in the "side door" rather than wait in a long line. She also recommended great lunch venues. The flight from Xi'an to Guilin was perfect and the Longji terraced rice paddies were unbelievable. Finally, John (another gem) was our tour guide in Shanghai. He personally put me on the bullet train from Shanghai to Beijing. I choose 4-star hotels and all hotels that China Tours used were "Accor" hotels (very comfortable, clean and perfectly located. I will return to China in 2020 and plan to use ChinaTours again!!
The first comment I would like to make is regarding the misnomer that our travel party was a group of "customers" or were treated as "customers." Our group consisted of an Aussie, a Kiwi-born Aussie, two generations of family from the Chinese enclave on Mauritius, an Indian Ocean island off the coast of Africa, a Hong Kong Mom, three young adult ABCs (American-Born Chinese) and a Sicilian-Cuban American Dad. From the moment we set foot on Chinese soil, we were greeted warmly by China Tours and were treated to kind hospitality by all. Our Guide in Beijing, Michael, has a knack and a talent for bringing "strangers" together and weaving them into a tapestry and creating the fabric of a strong family group. He accomplishes this through our communal meals and through our shared experiences together. We were then whisked off by bullet train to Xi'an, where we warmly greeted at Xi-an Station by Helen. In the days to follow, her knowledge of Chinese history and culture mesmerized us all. We were so impressed by her brilliance, her intelligence, and her grace and charm. We then proceeded on to the natural beauty of Zhangjiajie National Park, where "Super" Sarah guided us for the next two days. She hikes like the best, a truly seasoned veteran. Yet, she delicately held on to each one of us as we braved Heaven's Gate and Tianjin Mountain in the fog and during a brief rain storm. Our trip was capped off by a whirlwind tour of Shanghai with Karl the "Chinese Swede" as the leader of our pack. What a journey these ten days were. Thank you, China Tours for the memories, for the professionalism, and for the love and care shown to all of us.
China tours was a great tour group to visit China with. Our tour guides were very friendly and knowledgable. I enjoyed visiting the Great Wall, Terracotta warriors and Forbidden city. Peking Duck was a food highlight. I would highly recommend this tour group
We had two amazing tour guides. First Nancy showed us around Beijing which was amazing. Then Ms Gao showed us around Xi’an. They made the trip.In Beijing Nancy was able to show us everything we wanted to see and more. She made sure we were able to get into the right places and stand in the spots to take great photos. Our time was free in the evening so she would research great places to eat. We were able to have some great local food. In Xi’an Ms Gao was also amazing. She took us to see everything in Xi’an. So much history! She has so much passion for Chinese culture it made the three day tour amazing. She made sure we were able to really feel the history. My friends birthday was during our time there. She was able to have a cake delivered to the restaurant we were eating at. It meant a lot to us. One last note. Martha at the office made sure everything was coordinated properly. We had no issues. It was a high culture low stress trip. The best kind. Such amazing people. We will be back and definitely will book through China Tours!
