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.


Top China Tours show as a Amazing Adventure throughout China we would like to mention some Special people the work for TCT Joyce our tour consultant truly has done a excellent job with the organisation of our tour and looking after all our needs also I want to say a huge thank you to two exceptional tour guides CiCi and Sally they were amazing the went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful time Thanks TCT for a 5 Star tour we will be back again


From my first contact with our tour operator Janet, I felt very comfortable that she would organise a great trip for us. She was very clear, professional and helpful in our correspondence. We visited Beijing, Pinghao, Xian, Guilin and Shangai and everything was organised in the most perfect way! Also the guides we had along our trip were very good, helpful and flexilble and they all spoke English very well (sometimes a problem in Asia). I highly recommendvTop China Travel and Janet. Many thanks for the services...

We used Top China Travel to plan and execute our time in Beijing. They were very quick in responding to our requests and helped us create a personalized 6 day tour, giving us all the information we needed ahead of time. Our guide, Louise, was wonderful. She is personable and it was a pleasure to spend time with her. Her English is great and she is very knowledgeable about Chinese history and culture. She could answer any questions we had and we learned so much.Our trip was successful because of our time with her. We had a driver who took us to each place and all entry fees were included in our tour price which was very convenient. I highly recommend this type of tour in a city that could have otherwise been intimidating. We will definitely use TCT again.

I wasn’t told about pick up time until very late the night before (and I had to contact them about it). They did upgrade us from a group tour to a private one though, which was nice. Our driver and guide were the same person. He picked us up from our hotel in the morning and drove us to the place where we boarded the cruise. He got our tickets for us and told us he’d be waiting for us when the ship docked at Yangshuo. The cruise itself was very nice. It was 4 hours and included a boxed lunch (the food was actually pretty good). The views were great and it was nice to be able to alternate between being outside on the deck and inside. The only bad thing about the cruise is that all the announcements about what we were passing were all in Chinese. When we docked, we met our guide and he took us to West St (really cool), Ten-Mile Gallery, and we went bamboo rafting on Yulong River (this was awesome and I highly recommend this)! At the end of the day, he dropped us off at Chongshan at our request (we had asked him for a recommendation for a place with good Guilin rice noodles and apparently Chongshan is known for that). We liked that our guide/driver took great photos for us throughout the day. However, we were disappointed that we felt a bit rushed. We also felt that he was trying to sell us side trips, which bothered us a little. Also, when we were driving back to Guilin someone hit the car from behind (it wasn’t our driver’s fault) and I hit my head pretty hard yet he didn’t ask us if we were okay.


The 8 of us just returned from an amazing trip to Beijing, Xi’an, Lhasa, Chengdu and Shanghai. I must admit we were a bit nervous, organizing the trip from afar. However Lily Li from TCT was in constant communication with me, answering all my queries with professionalism. We had exceptional tour guides and drivers all the way. The service ran like clockwork yet allowed flexibility in what we wanted. We are thrilled with our experience and will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who are looking for small group tour, flexibility and good value for money. Thank you Lily from TCT.


TCT provided us with EXCELLENT Guides and Drivers. Very attentive to meeting our requirements. In fact all of the arrangements and organization, more than met our requirements. The highlights for us were our visits to the Stone Forest and the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. At the Stone Forest, we benefited from having a knowledgeable guide (Shirley) - she was able to let us see all of its beauty but still avoid the crowds. The Jade Mountain was the highest elevation that we have ever been - over 14000 ft. This is the time of the year to there - 50 F and sunshine. Also thrilling was going through the cloud bank before completing the cable car ride. As far as we could tell, the Minority people's (all over Yunnan) were living harmonious lives. All in all - a wonderful trip.


We organised and booked our China tour (for myself and my wife) with Janet Chan from Top China Travel. We included Beijing , Xi'an and Shanghai. Janet is the best travel consultant we ever met. She is very professional, honest and always prompt in correspondence. All her suggestions proved really good and we achieved in our 8 days in China much more than we thought possible , way above our expectations, and absolutely stress free. Janet helped us promptly whenever necessary and all bookings (hotel, historical attractions, restaurants, intercity travels) maximized the available time and also allowed us to immerse not just in China's millennial history but also a bit in the local, normal people's life. All our guides were very good and helpful, and we felt treated like friends, not just customers, especially by Sisi (Beijing) and Vicky (Shanghai). We already plan our return to China for a longer holiday, and we will certainly book with Janet - Top China Travel again. Overall, a very satisfying experience.

My girlfriend and I just returned from our first holiday to China, and we are very satisfied with the service Top China Travel provided.
Our trip included visiting Hong Kong (own arrangement), Guilin, Fenghuang and Zhangjiajie and was very spectacular!
Our organizer Janet Chan was very helpful in the months preceding our trip and was able to tailor our itinerary to our needs and budget.
TCT provided knowledgable, English speaking guides with attention to our specific wishes.
Drivers were always nice, polite and experienced, although they did not speak English (which was not necessary, as the guide was always with us to translate).
We also enjoyed good help in traveling between places in China by means of public ground transport (buses and trains), which is very well organized in China and is recommended above flying both in terms of comfort and price plus you see more of the country.
We were able to get the best out of our stay in China thanks to the service of Top China Travel and would heartily recommend this agency to everyone who is planning a holiday to China!


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.

During our 12 day china tour with Top China Travel there were no problems in fact everything was perfect including timing, punctuality, the itinerary, our accomodation and the guides.


professional people to handle everything. Rebecca the star of our trip to china answered my unending emails with lot of patience and smile. gave a perfect tour to see china in a memorable way. the guides Helen at shanghai and windy at Hongkong are very kind people and lot of patience to organise the trip to your liking. curt very bad guide in Beijing, doesn't have patience and smokes continuously, very rough in speaking. but china is beautiful country to visit.see it through these guys.


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.


We had our 8 day trip from Beijing to Tibet from 5/19/17 to 5/26/17. We had a great trip. From the beginning when we contacted our agent, to the time everything is arranged, then when we actually got there, it was well organized, everything we wanted, we got it. The price was reasonable, the tour guides and drivers were very knowledgeable, caring, responsible, and flexible. We saw the culture, beautiful scenes, and friendly people there. It was an unforgettable trip, we are very satisfied.

All of our tour guides and drivers were waiting for us at the train stations/airports as pre-arranged which took a lot of stress away. Everything ran so smoothly. A big Thank You to TCT Janet and the team for making our experience so enjoyable. WE will be Back The Food was Great go to the little cafes in the back streets well worth it and cheap
