We both loved the tour. Well organised, good hotels, good amount of time at all the sites and Feng was an amazing tour guide. She made it all so easy and fun. Feng was the best tour guide we've had with On the Go so far and we have been on a few tours. The Great Wall was our highlight, but we enjoyed the cultural activities and other sites immensely.”
Tristan was the ultimate in guides! From the moment he met me at the airport his friendliness was the first thing that I noticed. He gave me his number and I was to call him with even the smallest issue. He was so full of historical knowledge that no question went unanswered. He is a real asset to On The Go. Tom was our local guide for Xian and was well versed in local history. Nice man.
Fei, in Shanghai I found to be a little abrupt and not as warm as the others. He didn't seem to be happy the first day but did warm up after that a little.”
Absolute.y fantastic tour. Jackie was an amazing tour guide. Incredibly attentive with nothing being too much trouble. He deserves your top award for customer service. ”
