A fantastic experience of a lifetime. There was so much to see and do and John made it all work perfectly. The places we visited were wide ranging and very different. It was good to experience the food, culture and ‘flavour’ of the different cities. The museum at Shanghai was a great intro toChinareally good new part was Yangshuo-really enjoyed the cultural insight. The cycle tour and cookery lesson were highlights of Yangshuo .

We were ‘fogged ‘ in on the Yangtze which was diaappointing and could not be helped- but John taught us to play Mah Jong- which was superb- above and beyond anything we expected. All the evening meals were well planned-nice and close to wherevere we were, cheap and fresh with great service.
