Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:
Just a quick note to say thanks for organising the hotel accommodation and transfers for our recent trip to Beijing and Xi'an.
We both had a fantastic time and the pick ups worked like clockwork. The local guides Macy (in Beijing) and Chris (in Xi'an) were both helpful and knowledgeable.
Once again, thanks a lot.

Thanks for your email, and thanks for all you help in setting up what was an amazing trip. We had a really great time and got to see so much in a relatively short time.
The whole trip was a really good mix, in terms of site seeing, accommodation, food and location - i.e city and rural.
Trains were very comfortable and cars and drivers were great.
Highlight has to be the the five days spent with our guide we met in Lijiang, Lilly. She was an amazing guide and the hiking and home stay were brilliant. I would deffinatly recommend this to anyone if they are physically up to it, though Lilly made us aware of a driving option, which we wouldn't have done, but for those less keen on the hiking this could be an option.
Hotels in Lijiang and Yangshou were also quite spectacular.

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time on our trip to China this July. We were very impressed with how smooth the organisation was with great service from your tour reps from the moment we arrived at Beijing airport to the moment we checked in 9 days later in Shanghai airport.
The tour group was a great bunch of people and our tour leader - Regina- must be singled out for her excellent work in keeping us all organised and helping us out. The tour was a great introduction to China and the hotels were excellent. It was great to see the Hutongs and to ride bicycles around the walls of Xian as well as seeing the standard tourist sights of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. We also especially enjoyed the train rides and the choice for the eclipse site was excellent - it was just a shame the weather did not co-operate.
All in all a fantastic experience which we will treasure forever

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic trip we have just had in China. It was better than we could ever have imagined. Everybody was so friendly and helpful. Our tour guide "Fenge" was so good and there was nothing she wouldnt do to accommodate us, your Company is very lucky to have her.
Well done "On the Go" for putting together a trip in a lifetime, excellent.

|Yin & Yangtze Eclipse - 14 days|
A note of thanks for the super tour to Shanghai for the eclipse!! Even though we had cloudiness, there was enough sun viewing and the darkness to make me happy. The site for viewing was just right.
Of course, we were coming off the previous 2 days of superb touring with our great group of 33 English and Americans guided by Jackie, a wonderful guide. We all seemed to have a great 5 day run in China(I know I did!). All arrangements were handled by Jackie very well. He was a joy to be with; with his orange flag we could always find him. He handled the last minute change by 3 passengers to the airport, when they had told him they would get there themselves, well. I feel he is in the right business!
Again, thank you for arranging a wonderful, smoothly running 5 day tour for this Eclipse. It has made me think positively about the 2010 or 2011, 2012 eclipse tours. Keep me in touch, please.

|Eclipse on Shanghai - 5 days|
I can't believe that it is nearly 6 weeks since we returned from our trip. I have been meaning to email you ever since to tell
you that we had the most wonderful trip - Tibet in particular was a never to be forgotten experience and we are both
determined to go back.
I guess you know that there were 8 of us to start but we lost 5 within the first two days - taken off by the Chinese authorities and put in quarantine because someone on their flights had tested positive for swine flu. We were very lucky to escape.
Your tour guides were as usual fabulous. In particular Pembe in Tibet was unbelievable - what a wonderful man we learnt so much from him. Tibet really made us feel very humble - difficult to put into words how special we found it.
Anyway suffice to say that next year we intend motorbiking in the USA but future trips lined up include a return to Tibet; Vietnam and Cambodia; Peru; Chile and Mongolia so you shall be seeing us again. We cannot speak highly enough of On the Go!!
Many thanks for all your help and good advice.
Jenny and Pete

My son Mike and i are now back from China for an excellent holiday of a life-time thanks to On the Go Tours - Mike enjoyed his 14th birthday bargaining for his presents in local shops in Shanghai! (Don't worry he will get his main present now he is back in Birmingham!).
Your organisation was excellent in arranging everything for us and i feel it's important to thank you for this with excellent service in everything from visas to on the ground help in China. You probably get loads of moaning emails - so it's important to give you some good emails back!
I took loads of photos on our holiday including some of the eclipse we saw on the beach at Shanghai - unfortunately the morning was cloudy and we didn't see the full total eclipse, but that wasn't your fault! I did manage some photos through the thin clouds of the approaching eclipse and also the full darkness was awesome.
I must also congratulate you on the help you gave us on the ground in China where communication can be difficult for us non-Chinese speaking people. Both hotels were good in Beijing (the Rainbow) and Shanghai (Jyulong) and particularly good were your local guides in China - Jackie who was our guide on the eclipse tour in Shanghai must be congratulated. Also in Beijing we met up with Andrew & Carmel and their family from Britain and Harry and Lee from Hawaii (who were on the eclipse tour with us) - so we joined them for a day going to the Great Wall with your excellent guide Geoff. In addition your English speaking guides that escorted us to and from railway stations and airports must be congratulated - that's your guide in Shanghai (sorry i didn't catch his name) and the excellent Michelle in Beijing.
So thanks again for all the On the Go help,
