Feng was an amazing guide. She was very helpful & informative. Some of our tour group came down with gastro & Feng took great care of us.
Part of our group went on & did Chinese Checkers but those who were left continued our tour with Tom who was also great & just as informative.
The local guides were very knowledgeable & very entertaining so the tour was never boring.
The tour itself I would definitely recommend to my clients as I believe the tour covered all the major sights and offered great optional tours. ”
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”
