    Perfect China Trip
    The small group tour of Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai organised by China Tours was a great way to see these 3 fantastic cities of China. Each of the local guides Nancy (Beijing), Elysha (Xi’an) and Lucy (Shanghai) were very friendly, knowledgeable and interesting and had a passion for their jobs. They were all super helpful answering any questions and offering advice and tips for navigating each city in our own free time, including recommendations for places to eat and other attractions to see not covered by the tour. All the main attractions and sites were visited with plenty of time spent at each. The main highlights for me were the Forbidden City and Great Wall (Nancy took us to a great part of the wall that was not overcrowded) in Beijing and the Terracotta Army in Xi’an (including meeting the farmer who made the discovery in the 1970’s). It was not a rushed tour and was also flexible. In Xi’an because of the weather the itinerary order was changed to suit the group. Being a small escorted tour meant that you were not just one of many in the usual large group tours which made it more personal and enjoyable. A special mention for Nancy and Elysha who made suggestions, with no hidden agenda, in Beijing and Xi’an respectively to see live shows as add-ons which turned out to be unexpected delights. Martha of China Tours was very easy to deal with and was patient with all my requests and queries when booking the tour. Overall I can highly recommend China Tours if you plan to visit China and wish to arrange a tour. From start to finish everyone was extremely helpful and communicated in very good English.

    Fantastic Tour Itinerary, Guide, and Hotels
    I can’t imagine a better way to see and experience Taiwan than this 9-day tour. Starting in Taipei and driving counterclockwise we went from the top to the farthest southern tip of the country and back. Hotels were much nicer than expected as were all of the locals we met along the way. As most travelers know, a few words in the local language are much appreciated so set your Google translate app to Traditional Chinese and say hello! Our tour leader Cathy was funny, smiley, organized, and felt like my 2nd mother as she constantly made sure I was all right and happy. The trip itinerary was varied and extensive (maybe a few too many temples but that’s my problem). Perhaps the most impressive was the coordination between our tour leader and the travel company when an issue arose as when an indigenous cultural site unexpectedly closed. Cathy arranged for us to attend a special performance of another group which turned out to be one of the many highlights of the tour.
    This tour was excellent, a great introduction to an interesting country, a great value for the price. I highly recommend it. Oh, and try to get Cathy Lin as your guide; you won’t regret it.

    Amazing Experience
    Our 10 day tour with China Tours was an absolutely great experience. The hotels and transportation arrangements were great. We went to five cities, Beijing, Xi'an, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai. In each of those cities we had outstanding English speaking tour guides that were very knowledgeable and helpful. The tours were just the right amount of time to allow us spend some time on our own exploring each city. Overall, the trip was a great experience and we would highly recommend China Tours.

    Fabulous group tour
    As I come to an end to my amazing and memorable 10day tour to this beautiful country. I have but only praise for this fabulous tour operator. All the ladies, Lora, Nancy, elysha, lucky were just brilliant and superb at their jobs from been super informative to been so punctual, to experiencing local culture and recommend spots to try out local Cuisines. We were a group of 3 in the no shopping stop tour. It was my first experience in a group and I got some wonderful friends for a lifetime. Everything so well taken care of by lord always available and very reliable. I would recommend Nancy for Beijing she is an excellent and wonderful guide suggesting amazing things to do in Beijing and experiencing the great wall. Elysha for xian experiencing the amazing terracotta warrior and rich culture. Lucky was so informative about the modern and ancient history of shanghai. Excellent company and oustanding customer service.
