“Travel China was very efficient. Our consultant, Kelly Wang, tailor made our tour for us and it was exactly what we wanted. All the guides did a very good job - they all met us in time, took us to the sites, and were knowledgeable and friendly. The drivers were very good to.

Kelly helped with all my queries on how to get a visa, what to tip and where to meet the guides.

I would recommend Travel China Guide.”
