“The whole trip from start to finish was an experience well worth taking. Of course there were a few things which perhaps in hindsight could have been improved upon, particularly the overnight sleeper train journeys. We would have much preferred to have paid a little extra to have used the bullet train or even an extra flight wherever possible in order to have had more time to carry out sightseeing and avoid the arduous journeys. However, apart from that the holiday which was well organised by Exodus and superbly led by our tour guide, Alan Liu, (Hongbin Liu), who was absolutely brilliant. When you are on holiday, no matter who you go with, the face of the company is represented by the Tour Leader and in our instance this was Alan Liu. If we were to go back to China we would go on the understanding that the tour would again be led by Alan. He was extremely informative, funny, very well organised and knew his subject matter well. He ensured that we were at a particular venue or place at the right time so as to avoid the crowds and get the best views and this was particularly the case when we visited the Panda sanctuary at Chengdu where he timed it to perfection and we saw the Pandas at their liveliest and just before the main crowds arrived. Exodus would be so much poorer without the services of that man.”

“A great trip in regards to where we went and what we saw, however the group was far too big, 17, which had an impact on pace we could go and at times it felt like we were like any other tour group being herded around which is not why I chose to go with Exodus.”
