|The Tang Dynasty Show is a performance of Chang’an music and dance that originated during the time of the illustrious Tang Dynasty. Colourfully choreographed according to various historical records of the ancient arts with a host of singing, dancing and musical instrument playing performers, coupled with simple backdrops and props, this is entertainment that was once fit for a Tang emperor!|
|Nanjing, capital of imperial China under the early Ming dynasty, offers an fascinating mix of imperial and revolutionary history. Famed for it’s City Wall (one of the worlds longest), Nanjing has mant sites of interest including the Mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the great pioneer of the Chinese Revolution, the ruins of the Ming Palace, the Tomb of Zhu Yuanzhang, the first Ming Emperor and the Yangtze River Bridge.|
|Suzhou, a 2,500 year-old cultural city is located in an area of rivers that crisscross the Yangtze River Delta of southeastern China. In the city, boats bob along waterways interwoven with small bridges that run parallel to the streets and traditional houses built along them. Coupled with a stunning collection of UNESCO-listed gardens and famed for it’s silk, Suzhou is an oriental treasure!|
|Datong is an ancient cultural city dating back more than 2,000 years, the region’s biggest attraction is the UNESCO-listed Yungang Caves. Built more than 1,500 years ago, the 53 caves are a treasure trove of ancient Buddhist art comprising a fine collection of carved-sandstone Buddhist figures. The ‘Hanging Temple’ also located outside of Datong was constructed some 1,500 years on a precipitous rockface. Literally hugging the cliff, the temple is a total spectacle.|

This is our second "On the Go' tour and it has been another excellent experience. Stefanie has been excellent and would be highly commended as a tour guide. She has been professional and informative throughout the tours. This would not be the last tour that we go on with On the Go and I can not wait to recommend it to others.
Benjamin Machell ,
Our guide - Feng is brilliant! Efficient, organized and fun. Overall exceptional tour and value for money. Fine China gives excellent contrast between city and rural cultures. We would definitely recommend this tour to friends and relatives!
Stephanie did an amazing job as our tour leader, she cared, was happy all the time, she is definitely an asset to On The Go! It has been an amazing trip - beautiful country and people! Thank you.
I am just back in work today after having a wonderful trip to China with On the Go Tours. Everything went so well , all promises were kept and we had a wonderful guide Feng who met us on arrival in Beijing and really minded us well. I would have no hesitation in using your company again and thank you
so much for all the very happy memories.
I will definiately recommend your company to many of my friends here in Ireland and if they can have Feng as their guide then they will really be on a winner! thanks again
Just to let you know I really enjoyed the Fine China tour. I'd never done a tour before so came without preconceptions.
The itinerary was very well-thought out and with about the right amount of free time, especially on the first day. The guides were all great, ditto drivers, hotels very good too. I also liked being with a small group (11) from different countries, which gave it less of a package tour feel & more like-minded travellers. Also appreciated your efficiency before the trip, everything was very well organised.
The only downside was the massive number of other tourists everywhere we went, partly because the first Wednesday was Tomb Sweeping Festival, which meant a 5-day holiday starting at the weekend. So it was a real Chinese holiday experience!
Felt like royalty when only 2 of us headed south to Guilin & Yangshuo - both brilliant, anyone who has time & funds should go there. We left for Guilin in the morning of day 10 so had time to explore there too - a good idea as it's a nice town and well worth a visit in its own right. All the guide's suggestions were great so saw loads over and above the tour itinerary, like the brilliant Impressions show directed by film director Jiang Yi Mou (of Olympic fireworks display fame), caves with back lit stalagmites & stalactites (Yangshuo), tea plantation visit with tea processing demo, cable car ride up the mountain, which turned out to be a chair lift (not for the nervous, we were terrified going up, not so bad coming down), Guilin river & lakes cruise... Also spent a pleasant evening exploring Guilin's Sun and Moon pagodas & listening to music drift over the lake from the cafe opposite...
Also loved Shanghai, would recommend booking the latest flight available on the final day, or doing what I did and staying an extra night. I'm not that devoted to museums, but Shanghai museum was fantastic. Then there's the old town and market, Yuyuan gardens, Pudong financial district (spectacular modern architecture), the 3 hour river cruise (leaves 2pm) to the mouth of the Yangtse...
I will definitely be recommending otg to others
Thanks for everything
I had a fantastic time in China. Everything ran really smoothly and I liked the way the different tours fitted together - the pick ups and organisation for each stage of the tour was great. The tour group was a really nice mix of ages and everyone was very nice and always early for everything!
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Mandy. She was an excellent and knowledgeable and kind guide who took care of us and made sure everything ran smoothly.
I loved all the places I visited. I was particularly proud of myself for cycling around Xi'an city walls. I would love to go back again to China when it was not so hot!
I had a fantastic time and would like to travel with On the Go again.
Jacqueline Mordue ,
I loved the trip to Guilin and Yangshuo. It was beautiful and nice to have some free time. I liked the time we spent exploring the rice fields - this was definitely one of the highlights and I would surely come back to this part of China.
We (as a family) had an incredible time in China. Every day was a special day and it exceeded our expectations.
We have some fantastic memories and met some terrific travelling comanions on the journey.
Of particular mention were the visits to X'ian and Guilin, we would love to return.
Thank you again to all the staff of on the go who helped make this tour so unforgettable as they were terrific hosts/hostesses.
