Kim's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“The tour I went on with Travel China Guide was excellent. The small group of 10 people was a comfortable size. We travelled in a very clean van and our driver drove well. Our guide, Barry, spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable and helpful. The highlight of the tour for me was a visit to the Great Wall of China which I thought was amazing. I highly recommend Barry as a guide and touring with Travel China Guide.”

Connie's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“I really appreciate all the excellent services that have been provided by TravelChinaGuide. The whole tour was extremely well organised and offered so much more than we expected with all the interesting side trips and things to see and do each day. We loved everything but we especially liked the Pandas at Chengdu, the Shennv Stream excursion on the Yangtze River Cruise and seeing Guilin and Yungshou. It was also an interesting experience to have lunch at a local apartment in Xi'an.

We will be recommending your company whenever we talk about our holiday.”
