We had so many marvelous experiences. The VIP hotel at the top of the Longhi Scenic Area was beyond anything I have seen before, and the 'ride' up to the top carried by 3 strong men in a 'rickshaw' defied description. At 84 I would not have reached the top without their help. The memories of this adventure will be with me always, and when the cold winter months arrive, I shall recall this pleasure all over again. Well done Janetl Well done TCT and well done China. Your beautiful country does you credit.

My daughter and I had a terrific 6 day adventure hiking the Great Wall of China, made extra special by our wonderful,caring, attentive, informative, experienced guide, Jack Chen, and our kind and thoughtful driver, Mr. Zhou. We hiked the Gubeikou, Jinshanling, Wohushan, Jiankou, and Mutianyu sections of the Great Wall,.5-6 hours a day, with our guide, Jack Chen offering information about Chinese history, culture, politics, life, food, and what's it's like to live in China. Jack even gave us tai chi and kung fu lessons in the evening. The hikes offered spectacular views of the mountain ranges and valleys with views of the winding wall in the distance. You can just imagine the enemy armies trying to attack from the north. We took hundreds of pictures! I even got to celebrate my birthday on the second day of the hiking tour and asked other hikers we met to sing happy birthday to me in their own language. Jack and Mr Zhou surprised me with a delicious birthday cake which we all devoured after dinner. Our accommodations were suitable. We ate delicious food, carefully chosen by Jack, being attentive to my daughter's gluten-free needs...no bread, dumplings or wheat noodles. Hiking the "wild wall" on the 3rd day was really challenging! We hiked on very rough, broken, steep, overgrown, and narrow sections of the wall, but it was well worth it! We did welcome the cable car ride down. By the end of the 3rd day, we were tired and our legs felt it! Make sure you wear comfortable and sturdy hiking or trail shoes, carry a small day pack with snacks and water, light layers and a rain jacket. The weather changes a lot. This was a truly marvelous experience, not to be missed even if you hike only one day. If you are lucky to get Jack Chen as your guide, you will be very fortunate and extremely pleased and satisfied. He is a special person! Our trip was indeed, memorable!

I come from Poland and I visited China with a 60 pax group to China last month. Janet was in charge of all the arrangement of our group in China. She stayed with our group throughout our stay and she was with us to Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. She was very helpful and all the arrangement was very well and especially in emergency situations - someone got lost, missing luggage The entire stay in China was wonderfull. I hope it shortly to come back here with my family :-) I am pleased to recommend to everyone Top China Travel and Janet’s service . Rich55

Back in Lisbon, Portugal after a safe trip. Two weeks in China went fast. The first week, in Beijing, was for professional reasons (Conference), on our own (myself and my wife). We had visit Beijing nine years ago. We got now a better knowledge of Beijing (we use a lot the subway system this time, although taxis are affordable) and after this we discover Shangai and Hangzhou. The trip was organized quite in the last moment and TCT (Vicky Lu) was very helpful. Most of business was done by email and phone. We had visit in the past: Nanjing, HK, Macau, Guanzhou and Shenzen. This last week… the trip went ok and all the transfers were easy and the guides always on time. The drivers were nice and professional. The guides were sympatic and careful. In general the guides had a good (reasonable) handling of English. We met briefly twice Jane in Beijing. She took good care of us. Our guide in Shangai (Aiko?) made us see the planned journey and she was kind. Our guide in Hangzhu (Momo) was very easy to deal, more open and had quite good domain of English. She was funny. Lucas (we only meet him briefly) took us to Shangai train station. Nice guy. All the lunch meals were quite acceptable and the choice made in local restaurants pleased us. The Equatorial Hotel in Shangai was comfortable and up to the standards required (although no internet was complementary included in the room, why not?). The Hotel was located a little faraway from the center (beginning of West Nanjing Road) but it was easy to get restaurants near by. Since taxis are cheap in China, we could move easily to the People´s Square zone and West Nanjing Road … and other places (Pudong, etc). The West Lake Hotel in Hangzhou was below our expectations. We found the Train Stations fantastic, modern, functional and well organized… much better than in Europe. A suggestion… the local guides could give more hints for “things to do “ after the program. Myself and my wife… we are quite easy going and curious and we find our own way in order to know better the places we are visiting… but for other people visiting a few suggestions could help. Overall we had a good time. José Moura

Almost every Guilin hotel can provide something like this tour, including a bus return with a couple of pleasant stops. The basic set up is hotel pickup, transport to a boat loading area, a flotilla of those boats going down the river, and then some time in Yangshuo. But be careful about the return. It is often an add on item for an additional cost, and the connection in Yangshuo can be a bit dicey if your boat happens to be going behind schedule. So book through your hotel and take a phone so you can contact the tour guide if you need to. But you might also want to stay overnight in Yangshuo. That's probably what I would do if I had it to do over.

Enjoyable busy day!7 am start covering Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City early on amidst tight crowds followed by an unexpected stop at Pharmacy institute where we were able for a small “tip” enjoy a short foot massage and consultation with a Chinese medicine expert. Unfortunately this turned into an embarrassing pressure sell of his prescribed medicines which left us underwhelmed!Lunch was acceptable followed by a wiz around the Temple of Heaven. On the way to our final destination the Summer Palace we had another unexpected stop and “selling” opportunity at a pearl factory (store actually). Guide had his own sense of humour and opinions which were often unintelligible or off the wall and his English Weaker than other “English” speaking guides that we have experienced in China.All that said, we had a good day out in some very worthwhile places to visit and felt it value for money. Our favorite was the relative peace of the Summer Palace surroundings and in particular watching the old guys flying kites at heights I could not imagine possible.

We were apprehensive of booking the trip to china through a travel agency in China. But we found Maggie, our travel co-ordinator to be extremely helpful n co-operative. We had arranged for a 12 day private tour of Beijing, Xian, Shanghai & Hong Kong. The tour guides and drivers were good. Especially in Beijing, we had Annie as our guide. And she was so friendly, flexible and knowledgeable.We really enjoyed her company. In Xian, we had Sherry who was also gud enough. In Shanghai, we had Nathan who was good but Annie had set our expectations higher. We had asked for Indian Vegetarian food for lunch everywhere and we really surprised by the good Indian food available there. Hotel Novotel Beijing, Skytel in Xian, Sunrise on the Bund in Shanghai & Park hotel in Hong Kong were all very gud. Specially in Shanghai n Hong Kong, there were better vegetarian options in breakfast. Overall we had a wonderful stress-free trip to China and we wud surely recommend TCT to others.

We visited Beijing, Xian, Guilin, and Hong Kong. Our agent Rebecca was very helpful setting up the trip and very responsive to our questions. Our guide in Beijing, Linda, was a joy to be around. We made a friendship with her as we ended up spending a lot of time together. This personal service is most valuable to me as a seasoned world traveler who is used to solo travel. Having her as a guide made me feel like I knew someone in Beijing who was taking me to all those places I had previously only read about. Xian is cultural and Guilin is beautiful and we are so happy with our selection and with TCT.

We booked our trip with Top China Travel a private tour and was amazing experience. We were 4 people , just ladies. It was very well organized, our Spanish guides in the different cities very good especially Leon in Xian, the best. They were very knowledgeable and took care of us. Every time we went to another city, they didn't leave us until the check-in at the different airports. Our agent Raylene did an excellent job, organizing our trip, she was on top of everything. Thanks Raylene for our unforgettable vacation.

My wife and I chose TCT to plan a two week private tour of China for us and we are very glad that we did. Yocky, our travel planner, was excellent and everything worked out exactly as she had told us it would. The guides were well chosen and by and large spoke quite passable English. The younger ones sometimes tended to try and cram too much to do in one day for an older couple, but they were very flexible and quite willing to make minor alterations to our set progamme on our request. All in all, I would recommend TCT to anyone who wants an in depth look at China and its people.

My wife and I planned our two-week tour of China with Maggie of TCT to include Shanghai, Hangzhou, Xi'an and Beijing. We found her to be incredibly prompt and helpful in responding to our emails and flexible in altering the preliminary itinerary to meet our needs. TCT's guides in each of the cities were competent, personable young professionals, well-informed and able to make every day an exciting and knowledge-quenching experience. Again, they were also flexible, caring and responsive to our needs. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation and compliment Maggie and TCT on their outstanding customer service and program quality.
