We chose TCT for an 13day/12 night private guided tour trip through Beijing, Hefei, and Shanghai. Lily helped us plan and finalize the itinerary for our trip via email andwas very accommodating and helpful during the entire process. She also kept in contact with us throughout the trip to make sure that everything went smoothly and to our satisfaction. For the city guides, we had Ms Grace in Beijing, Alvin in Hefei, and Rooney in Shanghai. Each of our guides were helpful and informative and made sure that our needs were met along the way, and all of them were flexible with any last-minute requests or issues that came up. Special mention also for our drivers in Beijing and Shanghai who always made sure that we had water and that we got to our destinations on time regardless of the traffic situation. Our trip overall was very action-packed and we were able to see almost everything planned on our schedule including some last-minute inserted locations which was a plus. We had a great time visiting on our first trip to China, and would recommend TCT for anyone looking to looking to plan their own trip there.

We have just returned from a very satisfying trip to China. One of the highlights was the lovely city of Guilin. We had no idea that this would be such a pleasant spot in which to stroll around and enjoy the bridges and walkways. The temperature was comfortable and we felt at home walking around the park, footbridges, and along the lakes. Helen and Jim from Canada

I highly recommend Top China Travel (TCT) in particular Janet Chan for her excellent professional services in organising our recent tour in China. My wife and I did not want a group tour because we wanted greater flexibility so Janet put together a tour that took in all the major sight seeing cities. It was very well organised, the accommodation was great e.g. excellent locations, English speaking and delicious buffet breakfasts and close to all the major sights that will leave us with lasting memories. Her choice of guides was very good, they also spoke excellent English and had good personalities and were all very knowledgeable, the drivers were also very good and drove safely. In summary we believe that TCT provided a quality value added service and would recommend TCT to anyone looking for a reliable Chinese agency for organising their travels.

My extended family of 11, ages from 14 to 82, visited Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing. Lilly was instrumental in helping us planning the family trip. She was always prompt, helpful, and pleasant responding to our endless inquiries. We had Vicky in Shanghai as our guide. She was caring and sincere. Even though dinner was not included in our itinerary, Vicky accompanied us to restaurants so that we wouldn't get lost. When we left Shanghai, all of us missed having Vicky as our guide. Sally in Xi'an was professional. Cathy in Beijing was energetic, funny and caring, and we bonded with her instantly. At the end of our tour, she even took us for shopping after her service was officially over. At the airport, as we hugged each other to bid farewells, I felt as if I was parting with a longtime friend. All 3 guides were extremely accomodating my 82-year-old mother-in-law and assited in hiring a wheelchair for her at each sightseeing site. Because of each member of TCT with their mpeccable service, our family trip was a memorable one. I highly recommend TCT to anyone who is planning a trip to China. Thank you Lilly, Vicky and Chathy. You guys are awesome!!!

Lily from Top China Travel and her staff provided us an amazing 15 day visit to China last month, which featured Guilin and Yangshuo besides other major China destinations. Our hotels, guides, drivers and itineraries all more than met our expectations. We had lots of opportunities to add to or modify our itineraries, which we did. Whatever any changes were made, our guides and drivers helped us with transport and purchasing of entries. The hotels were superb, as were the meals. I highly recommend using Top China Travel to anyone wishing an excellent visit to China.

After much research we decided to go with Top China Travel for our 15 day trip to China. We worked with Janet and what a wonderful help she was. Janet answered our multitude of questions with patience. She offered helpful suggestions, helped us with our tour on the spot when a plane flight was cancelled, booked us outstanding hotels, and we had excellent service. They even called us and wondered if everything was going well in China. From the moment we touched down in China, our tour guides and drivers were right there for us showing us sights, answering questions, changing plans if we wanted to see other things, and helped us above and beyond what we expected. We went to Beijing, Xian, Xining, Lhasa, Chongqing, on a Yangtze River Cruise, visited Yichang and Shanghai. Quite the amazing trip. I would highly recommend Top China Travel for your travel needs to China. They were also reasonably priced. Thanks Top China Travel and Janet. What a trip!

With TCT I have organized a 21 days tour for my family: my wife, my 9 years old daughter and me (in august ) We asked to Rebecca (our TCT consultant), who has patiently worked for more than 6 months on all details, to see, not only the most interesting things but to understand a little the Chinese way of life. The goal of the journey was to let my daughter to see different way of life and unusual (for us) landscape. The other objective was to visit China like a Chinese tourist can do. All these things weren’t easy to organize, but after more than six months of planning we were exited to visit the Country and we had really high expectation. It seems impossible but all the goals have been reached and TCT make us to live unforgettable visit of China. During the organization of the tour Rebecca suggested us to add some destinations to our trip and that makes our trip something unique. One the most interesting thing is that in most of the hotel (all 4 stars – western standard- and really comfortable) we never meet western people, that mean we were out of usual tour. All the guides had high professional behavior, knowledge and did their best to let us to see as much as possible. Consider that we were with a 9 years old child and nothing went wrong. All the drivers, considering the traffic situation in China, have been super! They did all the best in order to take us closer to all attractions in the safest way. Guides and drivers has been very flexible. Some days we have been together more than 12 hours! All the guides make arrangement of the tour in order to avoid queue and visit more. That has surprise me a lot. We have visited places like Mt.Huangshan, Hongcun Village (set of the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Tulou in Fujian , Shaolin Zen Music Ritual in Denfeng (a show that worth the journey in China – the biggest stage we ever seen - , suggested by Rebecca) or arhat clay statues at White Horse Temple in Louyang ( if you have seen Terraccota Army in Xi’an you will remain astonished in front of this sculptures), descending from Grat Wall with a toboga, ride a bike on Xi’an city wall or visit a daily market in Beijing. We have attended to the Mask Changing show and 1000 Hands Dance , few minute show but hard to find in a show. Just to list some of the wonderful things we have experienced. But, the most astonishing thing has been that in some places “we were the attraction”. Western people were so unusual that parents asked to my daughter to take pictures with their children !!! Very Chinese !!! In Guilin we meet Rebecca from TCT after little bit less than one year of e-mails ! A great moment too. The only thing that TCT could not manage was the weather, but we have been lucky. Quite always blues sky and just one day of heavy rain. We could not ask more ! A special thanks to our guides Tony around Huangshan, Candy in Shangai, Mike in Xi’an, Mina in Fujian and Shane in Luoyang. And a special special thanks to Linda in Beijing and Tina in Guilin that have done so much for us in order satisfy all our wishes! Deep knowledge, flexibility and enthusiasm made us to enter in Chinese culture. . Interesting, safe and well organized! We are thinking to visit more China in the future with TCT, we trust them !

After completing an upstream Yangtze River Cruise from Yichang to Chongqing we had a couple of days in Chongqing itself. We decided to organise a full day private city tour and as a result I did some research on the internet as to the options. I quickly discovered that Top China Travel (TCT), who are based in Guilin, not only had the best option but also the best prices. I contacted TCT and was immediately contacted back by Yocky Yang. She was excellent in all aspects in organising the tour for us. All communications (her English was amazing) were made through WhatsApp which worked really well, payment was made through PayPal. The actual Full Day Tour included Peoples Hall and Square, Three Gorges Museum, Huguang Guild Hall, General Stilwall Museum and the Erling Park. A huge and excellent lunch (spicy Sichuan cuisine) was also included. Our guide David (who contacted us the day before to agree hotel pickup timing) was excellent, super friendly, spoke excellent English and was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of Chongqing. He pretty much let us dictate the speed in which we moved from one place to another, and there were no shopping stops !!! At the end of the tour we expressed a wish to visit Hongyadong as we had heard good reports of this quirky bar / restaurant complex and its amazing views. As we didn't know the way he offered to walk us there which was a nice touch, indeed we had a few drinks together which finished the wonderful day of nicely. Both Yocky Yang at TCT and David our tour guide are highly recommended.

I found Top China Travel in the internet, and started a conversation via email with one of the travel agents, her name is Joyce Tang, needless to say, she was excellent and understood exactly what we wanted to do and visit as a family. Joyce created a semi-private itinerary for my family. Everything went perfectly as planned and as described in the itinerary that I received from Joyce. We visited Shanghai, Xian, and Beijing, a 6 Day itinerary. We are extremely happy with the service we received!

I booked my flights without a tour thinking I could do it on my own. I soon realised it was not so easy as I thought. Top Travel China were a good option for booking a tour. Vicky helped with hotels, tours on our own (2 of us) and joining group tours. She arranged picking us up and dropping us off in luxury vehicles (Except the groups tours, which were in the normal not so great vans). The experience was awesome. Do be clear if you prefer spending more time in the village areas rather than the cities, but Vicky booked some awesome tours with some great guides, Annie in particular. A great service I have to say and what a fabulous trip.
