The tour was great in that we were allowed free time to do our own thing rather than being rushed from pillar to post. This meant we were able to get a feel of modern China, not just see a series of ancient things. Also having some dinners free meant we could try local food rather than be always having to eat tourist menu number one. We were lucky in that Stephanie knew some very good restaurants near our hotels. Stefanie was fun, informative and contributed a lot to our enjoyment of the tour. ”
Feng was an excellent tour guide she was friendly, informative and very helpful. The tour was very well organised and we had an amazing holiday,. We would highly recommend 'On The Go Tours' to anyone wanting to travel on a tour and we would not hesitate to book any future tours with 'On The Go'”
We thought this was a great tour. We had a great time as there was so much to see and do. The main highlights for me were climbing the Great Wall, visiting the Terracotta Warriors and experiencing the delight of seeing the Giant Pandas - not just one or two, but lots of them. I also really enjoyed the cycling tour in Xi'an. I felt this tour provided a great deal of variety, it gave us an insight to life in China, and all the guides were informative, particularly Feng, as she was our main guide. She was very informative and handled the situation well when one of our party had an accident on the cycling tour. The tour was well organised, as always, as this is my third tour with your company. Thanks for a great experience and I would highly recommend this tour.”
Fantastic trip , well planned, with enough flexibility to allow for everyone's different interests
Stephanie was absolutely fantastic ensuring everyone was catered for. Going above and beyond to ensure things ran smoothly . She was friendly , helpful and great fun. ”
We have done quite a few tours, and I must say that Chinese Checkers rates among the best. Justin our tour guide was such a good support, very caring, very knowledgeable and he went out of his way to be helpful and to make sure we saw and did all that we wanted to do.
I filled in the survey at the end of the tour, and I don't think I mentioned Justin by name so I thought I would just let you know.”
We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend On The Go Tours. Our guide Feng was amazing, a credit to the company and really made the trip special. Feng was knowledgeable , calm and organised and although we were quite a mixed group, she ensured that we were all happy (not just ma ma hu hu!) all of the time. The local guides Joe in Luoyang and Benny in Xi'an were also great and Stephanie who was in charge of the other group was lovely.
The tour itself ensured that we had a real taste of China with a good balance of culture and fun. It is quite a packed itinerary, so not a relaxing trip, but you certainly make the most of your time there. The only comments we have would be that it was a shame that the hotels in Luoyang and Xi'an did not have a proper bar area for the group to meet up and relax in the evenings. Also the hotel in Harbin was so lovely it would have been much better to have had our new Year's Eve meal there.
Many thanks to all involved!”
Fung was an amazing tour guide. She was extremly knowledgable, always had a smile on her face, and nothing was too much trouble if we asked. She definately made the tour”
Stephanie was truly amazing - without her, the holiday would definitely not be the superb trip that it was. Not only was she intelligent, supremely fluent in English and extraordinarily helpful and informative, she was funny, kind, caring, knowing, discreet and a true ambassador for China and On the Go tours.”
