One of our groups in Tiananmen Square at the start of their China Tour

Postcards from China

Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:

 

Hi Penny,

We are back from our short but awesome trip to China and Harbin.
The tour was organised well for us from beginning to end.
We had a terrific overall guiding from Feng who was knowledgeable about China and spoke very good English. She was quick witted, funny, caring and with so much patience able to handle 33 travellers well.
Local guides in Luoyang and Xian were good.

The weather was very very cold as we expected and prepared warm layering clothes were so useful to enjoy outdoor activities. It came down to minus 27C. But I heard that 2yrs ago it was minus 37C!!
Highlights were: Forbidden City, The Great Wall on Xmas day,The Terracotta Army (although not all were exhibited because of repairing season), Summer Palace, Xian cycling of Old City and Harbin Ice and Snow Festival.
Food was great - catering for Asian and Western palate.
Optional tours like Tang Dynasty Show and different dumpling dinner were great. Trips to see Pandas and Siberian Tigers were very interesting.

Hotels became more luxurious towards the end of the tour. Shangrila hotel, where we watched snowflakes falling while having brekkie one morning, all covered with snow! Winter wonderland!
Soft sleeper train was an experience. Because of our group’s large number, we occupied whole carriage to ourselves and youngsters had a ball!

I would recommend this special tour to others.
Thank you for handling our travel to China and hope to use On the Go again in the future.

Hi Kelly,

Firstly we do not think that the experience as a whole could have been better so really there are only good things to relate in that regard. The National guides we had, Nicky on the tailor-made tour, and Betty and Tom (not their real names obviously) on the Yin and Yangtze were exemplary and we cannot speak highly enough of their knowledge, attitude, patience, assistance, and thoughtfulness. They were able to change the itinerary depending on traffic etc to ensure we had the maximum time advantage at each attraction. There was never an apparent hurry and everyone's varying needs and wishes were catered for. Speaking to other tourist groups along the way, this was not always their experience.

The tours fully covered all the tourist aspects of China that were advertised on the brochures and were the ones we wanted to experience. The only exception was the cruise terminated above the wall of the Three Gorges Dam due to adverse weather conditions. In hindsight this was probably for the best as we understood that being on the ship in the 5 cavernous locks is noisy and could be smelly with diesel fumes. The next morning Tom had made all the necessary arrangements for a bus tour of the dam wall and associated facilities, so we missed nothing.

We were the oldest couple on the tour but did not have any problems with the pace at all. Our guide, Tom, made himself available to the younger ones to go out in the evening thus enhancing their experience.

Since our return we have recommended "On The Go" to people we know and will continue to do so. We would have no hesitation to take one of your tours again to another exotic destination.

Thank you Kelly for your friendly can do attitude through the planning, advice, and purchase phases of this holiday. We have enjoyed every bit.

While the tour was quite good, our guide Stephanie made it excellent! She is one of the warmest, helpful guides we ever had. Thoughtful and well versed in local knowledge.

All local tour guides gave us an incredible insight into local history and culture. They all are very polite and are willing to help make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
I would happily choose on the go as a tour company again.

We would like to thank you and compliment you on your employees who made our first trip to China a very happy and memorable event.
Tony met us at the Shanghai Airport and made sure everything at the hotel was organized before he left.
Tony then collected us and accompanied us to the Fast Train Station in Shanghai and ensured once again that we did not make a wrong turn anywhere before departing for Beijing.
On the train our booked seats did not have any window at all (the only 2 seats in the carriage). Thankfully on request we were allocated seats with a window.
25/8 - Started tour with Betty who really looked after us until Tom met us in Xian and between them made sure we all had a great time. Tom really looked after us showing us how to do noodles on the overnight train.
Thanks again
