The tour was 'action packed' which is what I wanted, no hanging around wondering what to do next. The guide(s) were knowledgeable and extremely helpful, and Feng, in particular, went out of her way to see that everyone was keeping up (helped with luggage when necessary) and comfortable (found us all a cup of hot tea on the overnight train - very welcome - and helped us to translate menus and order food when we were out of our depth.) The hotels were of a high standard, and the included meals were good. When we were out and about we were even told which toilets were best to use!”
Feng was excellent - looked after us very well and lots of advice and very interesting. Only suggestion is that she could provide more information about the history of some of the places we visited. tours were great.
The guide at Xi'an talked too much but provided little information. The comments were a bit banal.
suggest you make everyone aware of upgrades on the overnight train journeys to 2 sleeper cabins - this made a big difference for us - others in 4 berth cabins did not enjoy.
Ray in Shanghia was great. More time to see the big city skyscrapers and less at the garden would be good.”
