My husband and I booked a two week private tour of China with Top China Travel. It was an excellent experience. Vicky, a tour consultant, offered us a very good program visiting Beijing, Xian, Zhangjiajie, Shanghai and Nanjing. We really enjoyed every location. The tour guides were knowledgeable and helpful. In Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing me made our own hotel reservation and in Xian an Zhangjiajie TCT made the reservations for us. Lunch was included in the tour and the selection of the restaurants was excellent in most locations (except Xian). Overall great tour!

Getting too touristy but still really enjoyed. I guess everywhere I go will be tourist infested. I do wish this one could have held on to its authenticity a little more rather than having so many little shopping spots with people trying to sell you their "unique" "handmade" items (which i'm not sure I believe were). But it's also very nice to learn how rice is actually done -- way up here in the mountain. I enjoyed walking all around in the beautiful weather - up and down steps, out to other terraces, through the little enclave in the middle. I enjoyed seeing how very different peoples lives can be. I enjoyed that people still kept their clothing, their methods of doing some things.

We were a bit nervous about using a company that none of our friends had used and therefore had no personal recommendation, but they were amazing. The hotels were great, what we saw was amazing and our private tour guide took us to the places we really wanted to visit. We had 2 days in Beijing and wished we had longer. There is so much history there and our guide, Jennifer, was so knowledgeable. She is a history graduate so knew her history. The Great Wall was as great as you can image it. Our guide took us to the Mutianyu area of the wall where there weren't too many tourists and if you walked a couple of miles or so you can get away from them so easily, especially early in the tourist season. I do wish we had a longer time on the wall but it was so much fun coming down from the wall on a toboggan slide! At Xi'an, where we had 2 days, our guide took us to meet one of the farmers who discovered the terra-cotta army and that made that visit even more special. Old Xi'an is also fascinating and worth walking around the wall or taking a bike ride on it. We didn't have as much time in Shanghai, so only really saw the Bund area. We went up the Shanghai World Financial Center but when we got to the top, It was in the clouds so couldn't see much, though when we went down a level the clouds had lifted and the view was amazing. We did do a night river cruise on the Huangpu river which was our favorite thing to do. Top China Travel really do know how to pack as much into your trip as possible. Our train or plane transfers were in the evening so we had the day to visit and our guides really did help us with everything we needed. Our drivers provided bottled water in their cars, and the driver in Chengdu even provided Wifi in his car. In Shanghai we ended up with 3 guides and our driver was a smoker and even though he didn't smoke while we were in his car, it really smelled of smoke, but that wasn't the case at the other places. Vicky was our tour consultant and we were able to meet her in Guilin which was so nice. She really did answer any questions we had and was able to upgrade us to a better room in Guilin as our first room was way too warm. Not only did she make sure that we had a great experience in her country but also helped us with getting our visas. We had an amazing experience and have recommended Top China Travel to our family and friends.

We recently returned from a 16 day tour of China. Our holiday was organised by Rebecca Wei who was a pleasure to deal with. We arrived in Beijing and departed from Shanghai. There was lots to organise as we had two internal flights and three train journeys as well as three nights on a boat cruising the Yangtze river. All the arrangments fell into place like clockwork, our guides were excellent, spoke very good english and had a good knowledge of the places we visited. We saw some fantastic sights but some of the highlights for us were The Great Wall, The Yungang Grottoes, The Hanging Temple Datong, The terrracotta warriors and the muslim quarter in Xiang and the cruise on the Yangtze. We travelled in September so the temperatures were around 28C [ fine for us as we live in Durban] it is also a good time as the lines to get enterance to some places were very short. There was a lot of walking involved so comfortable walking shoes are a must as well as a sun hat. We stayed in a couple of "traditional" hotels which we loved and then some very upmarket hotels. The exception was the hotel in Xiang which scored 100% on location but had some very unfriendly staff a poor restaurant as well as putting us in an unrenovated room for the first night. We moved to the renovated floors for the other night which was much better. I should add here that this was a mistake by the hotel not TCT] My one regret is that we should have stayed a night in Wuzhen Water Town but that really was not practical as we had to leave our hotel in Shanghai at 4 in the morning to catch the flight home. We have some wondefull memories so thank you Rebecca and TCT for organizing a really interesting holiday Andrew and Anne B, DurbanSouth Africa

We hired TCT as a private guide as we traveled from Shanghai to Beijing with lots of stops in between. We had the most incredible time. Our tour guides and drivers were professional and amazing. Each tour guide treated us as if we were part of their family. They were always prompt and courteous. Most importantly, their knowledge kept us wanting to know more. We loved the traditions and cultures. We highly recommend the Impression shows, especially the one on West Lake. Our favorite over night arrangements was when we stayed at Courtyard 7 in the Hutong, in Beijing. It was nice being part of the culture. Thanks TCT for a most memorable trip.

From the planning of the trip with Janet to the amazing private guided tour given by Jimmy and driving by Mr. I, we felt cared for and pampered. We arrived on my birthday and Jimmy waited for hours for us due to a delayed flight for one of our party, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my birthday. We had asked for a hike along the Great Wall and were able to hike a five hour stretch on a nearly deserted piece of mountain trail culminating in a fantastic view of the snaking wall near Inner Mongolia. Jimmy was encouraging to us as not all of our party were the best hikers. Jimmy gave accurate historical descriptions of what we were about to see, he didn't make up answers to our sometimes random questions, but tried to find out the answers to them if he didn't know. He was personable and seemed to know what we needed before we did. Mr. I is a talented driver, navigating the chaotic Beijing streets with smoothness and skill getting us to our destinations in a timely manner. He also made sure we had water, which was essential for the hot (90*) and above days we were there. Our three star hotel the Holiday Inn Express was a new facility with great amenities. We had been worried that three stars in China might be a bit iffy, but this was very nice. We just happened upon Top China Travel on the Internet, but couldn't be more pleased with our experience.

My wife and I spent the beginning of a 11 day China trip in Beijing. Our trip was through Top China Travel and our travel advisor was Janet Chan. This phase of our trip went very well. Jim our guide and Mr Wong our driver were wonderful hosts. Mr Wong was punctual, safe, helpful, and friendly. Jim was very knowledgeable, informative, and friendly. If the rest of the trip goes this well we will be happy travelers.

TCT made up a fantastic week tour for us starting with Guilin. We were met at the airport by Warren who could speak good English and we were transferred to Guilin Bravo Hotel which is a nice hotel.In the evening Warren asked if we would like to goon a river trip which proved fantastic,not only for the nice bridges and illuminated fine buildings but also for the cormorant fishing and music playing among others.Warren timed the boat tour so that after 8pm we would be near the Waterfall hotel to enjoy the water cascade from the 16th floor. Next morning we were taken on a day cruise that included lunch among the beautiful scenery upto Yangshue. Warren suggested that we go and see the beautiful spectacular show given every day with some 300 participants.We enjoyed this immensely though it was a bit rainy, but if it wasn't for Warren, we would have stayed all night looking for a taxi to take us to the hotel....Next day we first explored the village to see the old Banyan tree and other interesting sights and then we were taken by car back to Guilin airport. This trip was awful as the road is all broken but the driver was good at avoiding pot-holes! From Guilin we flew to Hangzhou where we found Vicky waiting for us. She took spoke good English and spent some time explaining to us the fantasy stories of lovers, serpents and dragons to be able to appreciate Chinese culture while we visited West Lake, Lingyin Temple. |After lunch at local restaurant we were taken to Meijiawu GreenTea plantation. The next day we we took the train to Shanghai. The waiting room was so crowded but Vicky got the tickets for us and stayed with us until we went on the train. At Shanghai train station we were met by Ryan. He could speak good English and had some jokes for us too! The same evening, we asked to go on a river cruise by night which proved breath-taking.The next day we were taken around Shanghai visiting Yuyuan garden TheBund among others. The highlight was the Oriental Pearl TV tower with its glass floors! The next day the driver picked us up from the hotel early in the morning so as to take the flight to Beijing. I can really say that TCT made a good job providing with a good varied programme and good tour guides, especially Warren at Guilin.

We used Top China Tour for a recent trip which included Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai. This was a small group with four to six members. Top China travel did an excellent job. The hotels were all in excellent locations and the service was top notch. The tour guides all spoke very good English and knew the history of all the many places we visited. I always felt very comfortable wherever we went. Everything was organized nicely. I highly recommend Top China Travel as they provided us with a very memorable trip!

I took the boat cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo. Lunch was included on board. The day of the trip it was raining, which I felt added something to the ambiance. There aren't any buildings along the way, it's pretty much all nature. I liked the experience personally, but I feel that the price was a little high. The food on board was decent as well, but drinks were outrageously expensive.

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

We just returned from a very busy 10 tour of China. Maggie was great to work with in planning our trip. Mary was at the airport to meet us in Shanghai and got our trip off to a wonderful start. She was an absolute joy to be around. Annie met us in Guilin. She was a fun bundle of energy and took us on the Li River Cruise. Lena picked us up in Xian. Lena was so sweet and thoughtful and really made sure we had a great time. Daniel met us in Beijing for the last leg of our trip. Daniel was super knowledgeable and fun to be with. He took us up the Great Wall and made lots of memories for us all. All four drivers were courteous and attentive. They made sure we had water and we never waited for a car. Fantastic service by all. The guides all spoke excellent English and really took the anxiety of the language barrier out of the trip. We had great experiences and would highly recommend Top China Travel!
