We found TCT through a random internet search when looking for a local Chinese travel agency to help us plan our 2-week trip to China. We had a basic idea of what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go and Janet (our efficient and friendly TCT agent) put together a great itinerary for us that started in Beijing and ended in Hong Kong. We corresponded with her exclusively over e-mail and her responses were always punctual and on-point. The itinerary was very reasonably priced and TCT was able to organize everything from local hotel stays, restaurant meals, airport transfers, internal train and plane tickets and excursions in each city (e.g. great wall, etc.) As well, we were a group of 4 (myself, my husband and our in-laws) and our tours and transfers were almost always exclusively private. The guides in each city were knowledgeable and spoke decent English. Overall, we were very satisfied with TCT's services. I would recommend TCT if you are looking for a reliable one-stop shop to organize your China travels from start to end.

I recently visited China with my son and his friend. Janet Chan’s patience with us as we kept changing our minds on where to go and what to do was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to China. Starting in Chengdu we were met at the airport by Summer and the driver. They were on time and Summer was excellent with explanations and answered all our questions. She did not rush us and we had the time to see and take all the pictures we wanted. On To Xi’an . We were met at the airport by Lili and the driver. She was knowledgeable and very interesting. While visiting the Terracotta Soldiers she made sure that we had the best views and even helped us with finding the best prices for our souvenirs. She suggested we visit the wall and while there we saw the night time show. We also visited the People’s park ( a suggestion from Lili) and were amazed at all the activities there. We had decided to visit Pingyao on our own and really enjoyed walking around the city and even visited the underground castle. As we did not book any tours for this town our kind host at the hostel drove us to the castle and back. While there I lost my train ticket. We contacted Janet, and her agent, the driver and the train station were extremely helpful in helping me. When we arrived in Beijing the driver went out of his way to help me get the refund for my ticket and I will be forever grateful. We had only one issue through no fault of Top China Travel, with the guide the day we went to the Forbidden City, Summer Palace and The Temple of Heaven. We were picked up on time, we were rushed through the Forbidden City with little explanation. There was no time to visit or take pictures. We did have more time in the afternoon for the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace but I would have like more information about all three. Our last day was memorable . The Great Wall that Janet suggested was spectacular and I managed to walk to the tenth post. We had more than enough time to enjoy this experience. A short tour of Water Town after an excellent lunch was also included. Even though it took longer to reach our destination the spectacular views were so worth the bus ride and on the way we got to see the country side. We found the people of China most helpful, friendly and kind and it is a trip I will remember forever. I thank you, Janet for your help in making this amazing trip of a lifetime possible and being there when we needed help. Needless to say I would not hesitate to recommend Top China Travel to anyone. They are very professional and you get the feeling that they personally care that you have a great China experience. Janine

We did a private tour of Beijing and the Mutianyu portion of the Great Wall in October. The company seamlessly put together the tour for us (graciously making changes to accommodate our preferences) without any problems. All the staff I dealt with (Joyce as the organizer and Sisi as the tour guide) was absolutely fantastic. Very kind and knowledgeable people who goes out of their way to make suggestions to ensure the most amazing experience you could possibly have. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for anyone wanting to travel to China. Truly an amazing company!

It has been a wonderful private tour with TCT visiting Hong Kong, Guilin, Yangshuo, Xian, Bejing. We were promptly received at every airport and train station and warmly welcomed by all of the tour guides and also brought to our departure flights and trains always on time with warm and friendly smiles. This team (Billy, Summer, Eric) is very responsible which is very comforting for a traveller. Billy (Guilin/Yangshuo), Summer (Xian) and Eric (Bejing) are very knowledgeable about these cities and towns, and, easily provide the historical and traditional context of things which provided us deep understanding and clarity to our perspectives. We really enjoyed the Four Lakes cruise (Guilin), dinner in Yangshuo West Street, the performance impressions of Liu Sanjie (Yangshuo), Imperial show and Dumpling Banquet (Xian), dinner in the Houhai lake (Bejing), Peking Roast Duck at Quanjude Restaurant. At every location where we ate this team (Billy, Summer, Eric) ensured that our food preferences were taken care of even when it meant some last minute changes to the menu. Great flexibility. Strongly recommend these apart from visiting all the cultural and historical sites. Outstanding planning by Bonnie and immaculate execution by Billy, Summer, Eric made this a wonderful and memorable trip. Thank you guys and girls of TCT.

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.

The views are stunning and the boat that we were on had VIP seating for just our group with a private balcony to view the river.

We worked with Janet who created the most incredible 10 day trip to China. We were so happy she recommended Yellow Mountain (one of the biggest highlights of the trip.) Not only was the itinerary perfect, but we have the most amazing, knowledgable and friendly tour guides. We loved Olivia in Beijing and April in Huangshan. I am glad we decided to do private tour. I don't think we would have been able to appreciate and enjoy all of the cities and sites we saw if we were in a group. The food was incredible, easy transition from city to city with the help of the tour guides. This trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Janet and Top China Travel!

A big thank to Ms Yocky for arranging such a nice tour program and the services that she and her team have provided to my client with such efficiency. undoubtedly, Top China Travel is one of the best tour operator in China.

My wife and I planned our two-week tour of China with Maggie of TCT to include Shanghai, Hangzhou, Xi'an and Beijing. We found her to be incredibly prompt and helpful in responding to our emails and flexible in altering the preliminary itinerary to meet our needs. TCT's guides in each of the cities were competent, personable young professionals, well-informed and able to make every day an exciting and knowledge-quenching experience. Again, they were also flexible, caring and responsive to our needs. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation and compliment Maggie and TCT on their outstanding customer service and program quality.

The experiences, fantastic, as well brilliant, and phenomenal, these words—amongst so many others—describe, in-part, the truly unique, and special journey that 'Top China Travel' ('TCT') affords those fortunate enough to partake within their crafted adventures. From the beginning, and throughout, the quality in terms of service, to the locations themselves, and the opportunities afforded/provided (in terms of versatility, and optional/additional further experiences made available) was exceptional, and I have Bonnie Luo to thank for this, who was the Top China Travel representative involved within orchestrating/organising this. I was able to thank her in person, and I'm so very appreciative of this also, as her dedication, professionalism, and interest was outstanding. She excelled in being able to turn wants, into reality, and a recommendation to her in particular, as well 'Top China Travel' as a company, comes highly.

My family and I (4 pax) from Australia took a 16 day private tour with TCT in April. My husband found this tour operator from a friend and we took our chances after checking their reviews on Tripadvisor. A young lady, Yocky was our tour consultant. Yocky is fantastic! She is very professional, informative and more importantly she is honest, genuine and attentive! She was very responsive to our queries and paid attention to details. She even organised a pocket wifi to be sent to us when we first arrived in Beijing! Such a gem and great asset for this company. Considering she claimed that we were her first clients, she did her job perfectly.The tour itself was very organised. My husband and I did a lot of research ourselves, so we kind of know what we wanted to do, and where to go. We started in Beijing, Xian, Jiu Zhai Gou, Chengdu, 3 night river cruise with Century, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Along the way of the preparation, Yocky helped us with the final details, such as aligning with the cruise time table, what to prioritise, etc. She even suggested some local food.In each city, we were given a private car with driver and a tour guide. We didn't have any problems when arriving at the airport and the tour guides helped us check in at the airport (I find this is important, as it seems each local airport has their own 'safety regulations' that we found quite confusing!). We found most of our tour guides were professional with good English and knowledge of their local areas. I would like to highlight our tour guide Lin from Chengdu. Lin was excellent. She accommodated our needs very well. Ask for Lin as your tour guide when you visit Chengdu.Our regular communication with Yocky also helped us alot. Again, we really appreciate Yocky's availability throughout our trip. When we had to change our flight times and resolve problems with the river cruise,these issues were fixed by Yocky and her team immediately thanks to the pocket wifi and Yocky's availability!We were very satisfied with this tour provider especially with the service provided by Yocky. We will use this company again in the future.

Even though the boarding process might be a bit of a hassle, the tour is totally worth it: amazing landscape and unspoilt nature. One sees locals fishing, big birds, daily river life. The one hour trips on the river don’t do this fantastic amd unique lime stone scenery justice, the 4 hour cruise is very recommendable if you want to see this Guilin highlight! The boats are very comfortable, one can order Chinese food. With children it is recommendable to bring hats, sunscreen, snacks ( in case they don’t like the Chinese meal offered), binoculars and cards.
