Remember the name REBECCA. She was the tour operator who organized our trip. She is amazingly extraordinary. All my expectations were satisfied plus more, with her assistance on every aspect of our tour. The tour guides and the drivers who were marvelous with their jobs. They speak and understand English good enough to explain what the sites are. They have great knowledge of the sites. With Beijing, Our tour guide is SUNNY who was very receptive to our needs and safety. She is a very smart young lady who possess a great personality. She was very caring and treated us like a part of her family not just a client. We will really missed her smile. Thank you , Sunny !!! Our driver Mr Wang was also very pleasant and very safety conscious which is very hard to believe with drivers in China. FYI, the driving in China is CRAZY!!! THANKS again Rebecca for your great service and Sunny for your smile and Tenzin in Lhasa, Linda in Zangjiaje, Vicki in Shanghai, Sue in Xian,My appreciation for your exemplary service. We enjoyed our vacation in China because of all of you.

Huge thank you to Janet and Eric for an excellent trip to Beijing. Booking our trip with Janet was informative of all the available itineraries and destinations to visit and she made it easy to book our chosen one. Janet kept in touch even on our birthdays, most appreciated. We were met at the airport by Eric who was very friendly and knowledgable about Beijing and very happy to answer questions we had.The days were well planned and included several attractions all in one day. For example in one day we visited Tian'an,en square, the Forbidden city and the temple of heaven. Transport from place to place was seamless and very comfortable. Overall our experience in Beijing was extremely interesting and stress free. We will definitely highly recommend Top China Travel to friends who want a great experience in Beijing.
