We start to hike from the Forest Hiking Road with 45mins up to the famous landmark Mushroom Stone. It attracts numerous visitors by its unique outline of the bigger top quadrate right on the smaller quadrate bottom, which looks like a mushroom and seems fragile to fall. However, for one million years, it just stands so still there after centuries of natural weathering.

Continue to hike for about 30mins to the Old Golden Summit and walk up to its peak where we could appreciate the panorama of Fanjingshan and the Red Clouds Golden Summit clearly from a distance. Later on, we walk down gradually to the Cheng En Temple that was built first from the Ming Dynasty and one of the four royal temples at Fanjingshan.

Red Clouds Golden Summit, a thumb-like peak with one of the main appeals of visiting Fanjingshan from the summit , is described by UNESCO as an "island of metamorphic rock in a sea of karst". Take your challenge to hike along the narrow and steep steps with iron chain up to it. You will be rewarded with the panoramic view of Fanjingshan and enjoying the feeling of walking in the sky. (Note: You may choose to go up or not considerring your physical condition at that time. Just tell your needs to the guide.)

I would highly recommend TCT to anyone. We did a 2 week private (Beijing, Xian, Lhasa, Chengdu & Shanghai) tour with them and from the moment we arrived we felt like we were part of the family. Every guide was attentive, informative and an absolute pleasant to travel with. Special thanks to Rebecca for organising our itinerary and also a special mention to Tony, our guide in Beijing.

Our private tour guide, Jason, picked us up at our hotel and took us to the pier outside of Guilin where we boarded our boat for a cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo. The experience was amazing!! The views were stunning, breathtaking... whichever word you want to use, but I can see why many claim this is the most beautiful region of China. And Jason was so warm, welcoming and accommodating. We learned so much about him, where he's from and the culture in southwest China. It was a great day and an experience I would highly recommend if you're visiting this part of China. We're so thankful Lily at Top China Travel helped us plan this awesome day trip!!

We used Top China Tour for a recent trip which included Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai. This was a small group with four to six members. Top China travel did an excellent job. The hotels were all in excellent locations and the service was top notch. The tour guides all spoke very good English and knew the history of all the many places we visited. I always felt very comfortable wherever we went. Everything was organized nicely. I highly recommend Top China Travel as they provided us with a very memorable trip!

We booked a trip with Janet at TCT during February 2017. The trip needed to be tailored to our needs.... few days in Beijing, few days in Xian and a few days in QuFu (Shandong Province) where we were visiting our son. The help and service received from Janet and TCT were outstanding. Recommended, and we will definitely use Janet on our next trip to China. All guides were fine, and for individual trips we had transfers arranged, and they were always on time and excellent drivers. Thank you Janet and TCT.

A educational tour through the history of the Silk Road, well organised by Janet Chan who was very helpful and easy to communicate with. It is an extensive tour covering great distance-the western border of China - near Afghanistan. There were different tour guides in each area and all were great and some were excellent, Abdul, Shir and Vicky were standouts! as there was little or no English spoken in the western provinces it was necessary to have a guide to explain the sights as well as organise travel and hotel arrangements-also were great in recommending and taking us to great local restaurants. as we are experienced and usually individual travellers we had to suggest that we wanted to see the local areas and sights/people, guides were happy to do so especially in Kashgar where we changed to itinerary from the lake trip to spend time in the markets, teahouses etc -well worth doing as Kashgar and the Uygur people were a highlight of the trip. The tour involved 3 rail, 4 flights and numerous private vehicle trips-all went smoothly although we were not met at one rail station and had to make our own way to the hotel-normally not an issue but at this town there was no-one to speak english so was not a smooth transition. Highlights were off course the big tourist spots of the Beijing , Xian and the incredible terracotta warriors, the Magao grottoes , Labrang Monastery,and the very colourful Zhangye Dana Landform Geological Park, and Dunhuang. We extend our tour spending extra days in Shanghai where we didn't have guides and could be free to get to art galleries etc and then went to Guilin and Yanshuo which were a wonderful and greener change from the western provinces. We were pleased to meet Janet in Guilin. Overall it was a great trip and covered the Silk Road and the rich history that it encompassed, i would suggest less time spent in Urumqi and more tome in Kashgar -there was no need to visa two lakes (we went to the Sacred lake in Urumqi but on reflection would not have that included in the tour. We highly recommend Janet and Top China Travel, but be aware they are a company that has shopping included in Beijing and Xian !

The country is beautiful and glamorous from the inside and the outside. Including the people. Special thanks to our tour guide,LILY who made our trip memorable She planned everything from our our tickets to our food and shopping. Her service was excellent just like her behaviour. We had a misfortune of losing three newly bought phones. Even though we couldn't get the phones back lilly helped us through all the procedure from the police station to the street cc tv. And the lunch she provided us today in front of the great wall was perfect and elegant. Thank you for everything lilly. Hope we get you the next time we visit china again. And visit my country bangladesh anytime you like with your daughter and husband :)

Very satisfied with my recent Beijing>XIAN> Shanghai tour with Top China Travel. I wanted to have the services of a tour to navigate China given the language and short visit. From the inception Joyce my tour coordinator was very helpful and responded promptly to my many questions and clarifications. All aspects of the tour and options were very well explained and communicated. Guides were very knowledgeable and communicated with no issues in English. They were prompt, informative, helpful and Jolly which made the experience more pleasant. All aspects of the trips including internal train and flights were well planned and orchestrated so there was never any concerns and confusion at the sites and going on to the next destination. Guides were also helpful in suggesting venues for Dinner and currency exchanges, souvenir shops etc. Special call out to Ocean in Beijing who really goes all out to ensure you have an enjoyable and positive experience. Being an avid traveller, I can certainly recommend Top China Travel.

Our family experienced Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai to the fullest; mostly due to Top China Travel. The arrangements, itineraries, logistics, guides, and drivers were of the highest professional standard. 
Each day was special.
The personal attention given to our family by the guides, included making arrangements to attend an evening performance in each city. 
We look forward to returning to China and will confidently work with Top China Travel in the future.

We used Top China Travel for a 6 day Beijing City Tour and Badaling Great Wall Tour and we must say we were very impressed! Our tour guide Tina was very fluent in English and did a very good job of explaining the significance behind the various historical sites and attractions. As a vegetarian family, they were able to arrange a vegetarian lunch on both days for us. The only issue we had was that they only provided us two hours on the Great Wall which we realized was not adequate enough, given the huge crowd that visits the Badaling section of the wall. Apart from that, we would definitely recommend Top China Travel to anyone visiting China!

Raylene did a wonderful job organizing our tour to meet our time constraints. She answered all questions very efficiently. Our tour guide Rocco met us at the airport and the Driver was waiting near by. I have specific dietary restrictions and the guide was extremely helpful communicating that with the restaurants. The trip was so easy and we always felt safe. My husband and I are looking forward to booking a more extended trip in the future. There is so much to see and the food is wonderful!

Top China Travel provided an intense 15 day tour of China. Now that we look back we realize how much we accomplished. It was more expensive than a regular tour, but it was worth it. Very few local people actually understand and speak English, so having a guide to take us around was a great help. We had a different guide in each area, but all were great; Alex, Liang, Kellie, Annie, Gerry, Adam, among others, really made each city trip enjoyable. They provided an overall view of their area, including the main sights and picked an excellent restaurant for our lunches so we were able to sample lots of different local foods. We had a car just for us and the guide basically picked us up at the airport/train station and ended his assignment after checking us in for our flight/train ride to the following city in our itinerary. We couldn't have done everything we did had it not been for the organization of this custom tour. Only issue we had is that we were only 1 day in Xian and therefore missed the cultural night show since we arrived too late into Xian to make it that night; and the following day after touring the Terracotta Soldiers we left in the afternoon for our next stop. Would have liked to have been told about this famous show so we could have maybe rearranged something. Other than this, Top China Travel made our China experience a memorable one.

Our guide picked us up on time despite all the traffic of National Holiday Week and explained to us early on that her English was not great (however still enough to communicate some history of the village and the region) but she was very friendly and helpful. We were told we would go to another village rather than Ping'an because of the crowds which we much preferred because it meant we could explore this one (however we did not see a long hair show).

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.
