I had a fantastic experience! It was my first time in a country where I don’t speak the language and, with the help of our guide, I never found it to be a problem. The itinerary was perfectly clearly and followed closely with wiggle room allowing for a good rest. For my first grand international travel experience, David made me feel at ease while providing an exceptional time. Receiving the cultural experience rather than just standard sightseeing was something the tour provided me that I would never have made it by myself.

The tour provided the correct information with regards as to what was going to happen and the expectations. It was the challenge undertaken at a certain time of life and a great personal achievement – both mentally and physically! I loved experiencing Chinese culture and truly hope this does not change as the villages develop. Charles could not have been any better – he was a fantastic tour guide who communicated fantastically with a group whose ages ranged from 28 to 75! The ability of the group varied immensely but Harvey kept it all together. His local knowledge was superb!

The trip was fantastic from start to finish. I had no complaints whatsoever. Excellent adventure! Our tour leader Anson was outstanding. Anson made us all feel welcome when he first met us, explained what would happen on the trip and answered all of our questions. Throughout the entire trip Anson went above and beyond what we expected of him!

The tour was very well organised from start to finish. This was an awe inspiring, breath taking trip. This was the first organised tour we had ever been on and we were a bit apprehensive but it exceeded our expectations. We would definitely use this company again. Our guide was excellent every step of the way she got to know us all in a short period of time was always on hand to answer any queries or to give information and advice and even accompanied us to the bank when we required extra funds.

I had a FANTASTIC tour around China which was mainly due to our lovely tour guide Leah who was fun, kind, professional and enthusiastic at all times. Leah surpassed all of my needs and wants when visiting the China. We saw fantastic sights in China and Leah was always extremely enthusiastic about each one despite having probably seen them 100 times before our tour! She also made it possible to do other things we wanted to do, for example, some of the group tried dog, snake and bamboo rat at a local restaurant in Guilin as they really wanted to and organised the whole thing for them! The whole tour was brilliant and after telling my mum and sister and showing them my pictures they are planning on coming back to China with me and hopefully we will be able to have her as our tour guide again!
