We took a Li river tour into the mountains on our only day off. All I can say is do not miss this opportunity. The views are spectacular and you will even go past the scene on the back of the 20 yuan bill. Amazing!

My wife and I booked a private tour with Top China Travel for 6 days , From the outset the help we got from TCT was first class and Joyce our representative in China answered all our questions and tailored the tour accordingly . On arrival at Beijing airport the guide Venus and driver Mr Howe were there to meet us and take us to our very comfortable hotel which TCT had arranged. The second day we visited the Great Wall which was fantastic. Neil the guide for this trip was knowledgeable and very informative and later in the day we wandered around the beautiful Summer Palace at leisure. The Forbidden City with Venus our lovely guide was incredible as was meeting local people in the Hutong and market. A trip to Xi An to see the Terracotta Warriers taking the bullet train from Beijing was incredible travelling at 306 kilometres an hour. Comfortable and spotless taking just 4hr 20min to cover 1,200 Kms . Again when we arrived in Xi An station our guide Vincy and the driver Mr Toa were there to meet us and take us to our hotel. The next morning our car driver and guide took us to the Buddhist Pagoda in Xi An the first to be built in China, Very Interesting and so peaceful. The terracotta warriors were incredible, a massive site with five pits. We cannot thank Top China Tours enough for helping us to have an experience of a life time and we recommend them unreservedly.

In April and May, 2017, my wife and I went to China. We booked our trip online from Australia. The girl we dealt with was called Rebecca. She was absolutely fantastic. We changed our minds, about our destinations, many times, in the planning process but Rebecca was always there to give us advice and make suggestions. At one stage, we hadn't heard from her, for about two days. She apologised for the delay because she got married!
We went to Shanghai, Guilin,Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Chengdu, Lhasa, Xian and Wuhan. We had the good fortune to meet Rebecca when we were in Guilin. It was great to meet the person, who had made our trip so absolutely successful.
We found out about Top China Travel, via Trip Adviser. We can only say, from our experience, if you are going to China, book through them and ask for Rebecca. Rebecca was a pleasure to deal with and she is an absolute asset to this company.

Overall our 16 days customized private trip to China ( including Tibet region ) was organized very well .Our contact person was Maggie Qin . We visited Beijing , Xi'an , Lhasa and Shanghai. We also took 3 nights Yangtze river cruise from Chongqing . Everything went off smoothly . The five star Hotels booked for us were excellent and centrally located . There was no problem with air , train or ship bookings . All cars arranged for local travel were in good condition and drivers courteous . All guides were well behaved and always present at the time of arrival at different destinations . They explained things nicely and in interesting manner . They were also helpful and flexible to meet our requirements . Thank you Maggie and thanks to the entire TCT team .

We are a young couple from Australia. We originally were going to book a trip through a local (Australia) travel agent but luckily stumbled across TCT as we save thousands of dollars and had an amazing holiday. We contacted Janet Chan and she replied with a detailed and clear itinerary. Although the company based is in China we often got same day responses if not the next day, and Janet was able to create an amazing holiday with a good price. We had nice guides like William in Beijing, Cherry in Xian, only issues were with Aries in Shanghai. He was not as good, his English was great, but he didn't seem very interested and would often walk miles ahead which meant we would lose him in very crowded areas. This was the only dampener on an otherwise excellent holiday.

Of all of the places in China we visited Guilin was our favourite. It was very scenic with its lush greenery and limestone hills. We took the 4 Lakes and 2 River cruise which I would highly recommend. On another night we walked along the lakes and rivers and crossed the bridges, we had cruised the night before. The lighting on the lakes and rivers as well as on the bridges was splendid. We also went on a 3.5 hour cruise on the Li River. My husband is an amateur photographer and he took roughly 300 pictures on the Li River cruise (just to give you an idea of how scenic it was).

We had the most wonderful time in our trip to China, thanks to TCT. We had a great team in every City: Leo in Shanghai; Sarah in Guilin and Yangshuo; Snow in Chengdu, Carol in Xian and Jane in Beijing. They prompt met us at every airport, and train station and welcomed us with warm friend smiles. We appreciated how responsible they were and always on time to take us everywhere we were going! They made our vacation the most memorable ever. We learned so much about China's history and the fascinating stories they shared with us! our trip organizer Janet had lunch with us in Guilin and introduced her daughter to us. we felt like part of the family:) and that's how we felt the entire trip, like we had our cousins waiting for us on every airport...what an AMAZING trip. we highly recommend TCT! Very special thanks to Snow for re- arranging our visit to the Panda bear sanctuary for us to take pictures with the baby Panda! Thanks again to Leo, Sarah, Snow, Carol and Jane. We loved you guys!!!

I traveled Zhangjiajie with my wife. After finding TCT, I customized my travel with TCT. Vicky in TCT offered me a right plan that I was looking for. Travel guide, Victor was sincerely guided us and responded to our on-site requests. I left my earrings in the hotel and contacted Victor for it. With his help, Hotel sent it to me with one-day shipping and I received it safely. This made my travel more enjoyable with one more great memory. Zhangjiajie is must see place. I still remember breath-taking view. With kind people, it is more shiny.

We had our family reunion 2017 in China, visiting Beijing, Xi’an and Chendge. Sophie was excellent and instrumental in helping us with the planning, she spent months organising and arranging. Her response was always prompt, helpful, and detailed while responding to our enquiries. We had Mr. Li in Xi’an as our guide who was phenomenal, he is very proficient in his English and knowledgeable of the city of Xian and Chinese history. Even though lunch was not included in our itinerary, Mr Li accompanied us to restaurants. In Beijing, initially we had Mr Leo who was energetic & caring, but was unable to deliver. From the second day for Beijing & Chengde we had Mr Mike as our guide who was professional. We were travelling with senior citizens & kids and all guides were extremely accommodating. I highly recommend TCT to anyone planning a trip to China. Thank you Sophie, Li, Leo and Mark for the fantastic trip!!

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!
