A fantastic experience, one where you can taste the Chinese culture mixed with city life while having the time of your life walking on the Great Wall of China – perfect! Louis was one of the most personable men one could meet on such a trip. He represented the company and his country in an excellent way. He worked hard to ensure that everyone met their individual goals whilst remaining part of the group.

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 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 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 tour that I was on was just what I wanted. The guide was wonderful and made the tour a wonderful and safe experience. It was one of the most enjoyable trips I have been on. I learned a great deal about China, about the Great Wall and found the Chinese people to be very friendly.
