Here are some reviews from our past travellers to China. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
The tour was fantastic - our group were all like minded and we got along very well! For the majority of us, it was a first time visit to China, so was great to experience everything together for the first time! All the hotels were in very good locations, were clean & comfortable, and the included breakfasts always had a wide variety of both western & Asian meal options. The coaches used in each city were clean and comfortable and offered plenty of space for our group of 20.Our guide Stefanie was truly amazing and she really made the trip all the more memorable!! She explained everything clearly and concisely, was always available to offer assistance and guidance on anything that was needed. This was a thoroughly enjoyable trip and one that I will remember for a long time! Thank you for an amazing experience! ”
There were two guides Feng for Beijing and Torgee for Tibet, both were very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I are in our mid seventies and consider ourselves pretty fit. The tour is an "On the go tour" and we found that to be the case, never a dull moment and quite physical with a lot of walking, which we were able to cope with, maybe better than some of the younger members of the group. When we arrived in Tibet, Lhasa we were not prepared for the altitude, we had been told but did not realise how debilitating it would be. A well run tour with lots of exciting things to see and do. Thank you”
My trip started in Beijing where I collected my tourist visa and my flights details were arranged and then it was off to Pyongyang. Accompanied by my two guides at all times my itinerary was structured and controlled but each day was very busy and entertaining. My itinerary included a succession of monuments, towers, statues and buildings that glorify the Kim regime. It even included a trip to the circus to watch some amazing young acrobats. The memorable part of the trip was a visit to the DMZ at Panmunjom and seeing the situation from the north gave me a chance to witness things from a new perspective. The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea is not a budget destination and there are absolutely no opportunities to use public transport, change hotels and mix with the locals. I found that the fascination of travelling in the DPRK is trying to see past the ideology and 'accept' the version of history given to me by my guides and just understanding that I was in the most closed and secretive nation on earth. As with all my trips I arrived in North Korea with a sense of humour and an open mind and I found I had a very rewarding and enjoyable trip. My guides were friendly, knowledgeable, polite and provided lots of laughs. The DPRK is clean, very safe and except for Munich and Poland has the best draught beer I have tasted!
