Sunghee's review for another Travel China Guide tour
5 - Excellent
“We had an awesome experience with my tour guide, Vicky and the driver including my travel consultant Vera. We didn’t expect very long process to get cleared from the China airport as a no visa visitor, so we were pretty late for our scheduled tour.
Luckily, my travel consultant responded my message at 6am on Sunday, so I rearranged my time and the pick-up place instantly with reasonable extra payment, so we were picked up at the airport by the time we finished all the processes including our breakfast.
The entire team was so accommodating with our unexpected situation, so we were able to finish our trip nicely.
The car was very clean and comfortable. The guide was very enthusiastic to share as much as she could. She even brought us Chinese sneakers bar for our lunch due to our tight schedule. The travel consultant followed through very well to the end.
We couldn’t have asked more. We had a great tour and the experience.”
Rob's review for another Travel China Guide tour
5 - Excellent
“Kevin (our tour guide) met us at our hotel early and got us into our tour quickly. Kevin was an engaging and warm guide, with great knowledge of the forbidden city and Chinese history, adding lots of detail and stories to make the day exciting and informative.

We had a good trip to the Great Wall and several hours to walk the wall and spend time taking in such a magnificent modern wonder.”
