Jake's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“I found this tour to be quite nice. I've never actually been on a group tour such as this before as I typically travel solo, but I thought it might be a good idea to be on a group tour in China. Everything from the very start went well. I was picked up promptly from the airport and brought to the hotel in Beijing, which was a nice hotel to stay in. The sites and activities were interesting as well. A week, along with 2 flights between cities is quite a lot to pack in, but I went in with the expectation that we would always be pressed for time.

All three guides were knowledgeable and helpful throughout. The transportation between sites was good, with two bottles of water provided each day. Accommodations in all three cities was very nice. We had a chance to visit many different restaurants and there was some fantastic food. In particular, the first large group meal in Beijing was amazing (though I don't recall the name of it). Overall, I can say I'd book again with Travel China Guide without hesitation.”
