Postcards from China

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

 

Mandy was so amazing. I have never seen a guide so hardworking. She always made sure every guest completely happy and went above and beyond to make our tour fantastic! Benny was also an amazing local guide and we enjoyed our time with him very much.

We have had an incredible time in china. Our guide, Mandy was extremely organized and very nurturing and accommodating to our individual needs. Her knowledge of the various sites we visited, as well as her additional knowledge of the country in general is exceptional.

Mandy is an absolutely phenomenal tour guide. I have never had a tour guide that is so organized, efficient, caring, helpful, kind, friendly,fun, funny, so wonderful! I am so impressed by Mandy and I wish that I could have her on other tours. She is exceptional and is highly recommended. Mandy has gone above and beyond to help all of the guests on her tour.

We have loved our "on the go tour". It has been just right for our family in all aspects. I especially want to comment on Feng-out tour guide. She has been most professional, caring, friendly and has gone out of her way to make sure our tour has been fantastic for both adults and children.

Hi Ashley,

My wife and I have done over ten tours now with various companies and would have to say that On The Go ranks very high on our list of preferred operators, your company seems to know how to cover all the little details some others leave out. Our tour manager in China (Stephanie) we could not fault, she thought of everything, kept us all together like sticky rice in cities of over 20 Million people and still had time to have fun with us. At times she went above and beyond what would be expected of a tour manager. If On The Go has excellence awards for your managers we would like to nominate Stephanie as a candidate.
All the local people you use for transfers, drivers and guides were all so prompt it was scarey. As seasoned travelers we really appreciate the fine detail that On The Go puts into not only your tours but also pre and post tour transfers and accommodation.
Everything went like clockwork, which made for a fantastic trip.

Would also like to mention that we did the 3 day Nanjing Bolt on.
We cannot understand why On The Go is no longer advertising this as a Bolt On option, what a fascinating city with so much history, in particular the Nanjing Massacre Museum. Very confronting but a must see in Nanjing. Our local guide ( Kai ) was brilliant, he was informative without being overbearing with information. We can highly recommend doing this Bolt On and are so glad we did it, it has left us with a lasting memory of our trip to China.

Thank you On The Go.

Hello Ryan,

I did the Yin and Yangtze tour, joining from and returning to Hong Kong, where I visited a son on secondment from London. The first thing to mention is that I came as a single traveller, but I need have had no worries. The group comprised both younger and older travellers from several different countries, including half a dozen other solo members, and we all mingled, collaborated and supported each other brilliantly, to an extent that I have not experienced on previous holidays. This aspect made a great holiday even better - so thank you, guys; you know who you are!
Next, I have to say that the organisation and management of the tour were outstanding; everything just clicked, and any minor problems were quickly resolved. Special thanks to our principal tour manager, Stephanie, who was just great. Now and then one did get the feeling that things were somewhat regulated, prescribed or circumscribed to conform to the wishes and notions of the host nation, but given where we were that was perhaps hardly surprising and it did not detract from the enjoyment. There was of course relatively little contact with "ordinary people"; those Chinese with whom we did have contact, in hotels, restaurants, tourist venues, taxis and trains etc, were, I thought, efficient and business-like rather than particularly friendly or personable. Perhaps they have yet to learn to relax in the company of foreigners!
The tour itself, the places we visited and the sights we saw, exceeded expectations. Whether one was in a city, at a famous site/sight or just in the street, on the Yangtze cruise (or an astonishing "peapod" boat!), in a garden or museum, at the Great Wall, on a train or among soaring new skyscrapers and bridges, there was variety aplenty, much to admire and wonder at, so much that was unique, historic, or just different from anything experienced before.
Our accommodations varied, from fair to rather good, but were generally comfortable and spotless; and the food throughout was varied, plentiful and enjoyable. At the end, though, in Shanghai, my remaining companions and I found our way to the French quarter. There we happened upon the 'Boxing Cat Brewery', serving real ales, cocktails and an international variety of food, which, I confess, by that stage came as a welcome change! With a pool table and dart-board for amusement, it felt just like "home". But then Shanghai is a very cosmopolitan city, evidently trying hard to be like Hong Kong, and very much part of modern China.
Overall, this trip really was "on-the-go" and, partly because of a heavy cold that developed in the last few days, I came home exhausted. But I wouldn't have missed any of it. Everyone should go! Thank you, to all in my group and to everyone at On the Go Tours.
