It's been a few months since I finished our 11 days (23 Dec-3Jan) private China tour arranged by Janet Chan from Top China Travel. The trip consists of the following cities: Beijing - Hangzhou - Suzhou - Shanghai - Guilin - Hongkong. I really need to thank Janet for her patience towards the schedule changes and all of my custom requests for driver transfer to dinner etc, and even for restaurants booking. In addition, I also found their price to be the best compared with the other competitor. All of our local guides (Sunny in Beijing, Summer in Hangzhou, Isaac in Suzhou, Ryan in Shanghai, and Jay in Guilin) were all helpful, flexible, and very accomodating. They even explained in both english and chinese since my parents can't understand english. They even add some objects here and there so that we can enjoy most of our time in China. They also recommend all of good restaurants in each city. All of them were really good, we even had the best porridge and liu sha bao while we were in Guilin.. Overall, we really enjoyed our time in China, and I didn't expect the trip would be so easy with TCT. Once again, thanks Janet Chan who enables us to make the most of our holiday. Can't wait to plan another trip to China with TCT.

I just returned for a wonderful China tour. I booked through TCT and Tracy was fantastic. My entire trip was amazing, I went to four cities, Shanghai, Xian, Chengdu and Beijing. I had the private tours with private guides which I highly recommend. My guides, Chris, Lily, Fen and Neil were fantastic. Neil in Beijing was absolutely amazing! I am already thinking about a trip back.

The Li River cruise was truly an enjoyable one. Good place for photos and scenery. Tasting of Li River's seafood was excellent too.

My 19 year old daughter and her friend wanted to see something of China before spending 8 weeks studying in Beijing. Rebecca from TCT arranged the itinerary. Everything went extremely smoothly and the girls had a wonderful time which included bicycle riding, sechuan opera and the panda breeding center. One of the guides in particular went over and above the call of duty to give the girls a great time. My daughter had her birthday during the trip and rebecca arranged for the guide to buy a beautiful birthday cake for her. it was the trip of a lifetime.

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 can't recommend this company enough!!I started talking to Yocky via the chat system on their website, as we wanted to do a 2.5 week trip around China. Our itinerary was:Shenzhen-Beijing-Xian-Kunming-Dongchuan-Chengdu-Guilin-SanyaHere's how things went:1) She was instant in her replies and responded to subsequent emails within the hour (and trust me, I sent A LOT of emails). She was always so thorough and efficient.2) She made us a tailor made trip that covered everything we wanted, including some slightly more off the beaten track attractions.3) She helped us keep to our budget and suggested reasonable things we could cut out when things were too expensive (not something many companies would do as they are trying to make a quick buck).4) She listened to all of our requests for things such as early morning flights, vegetarian food, and readjusting itineraries.5) All our drivers and guides were EXCELLENT; they were prompt, kind, spoke excellent English and had a wealth of knowledge about all the sites we saw. All the cars on our private tours were nice and comfortable and had water.6) Despite asking for 3* hotels, all 7 hotels we stayed in seemed like 4* to us and all included breakfast.7) With such a large and complicated trip there were bound to be a few hiccups (e.g. there was a marathon in Xian one day which meant a lot of roads were closed, so we couldn't access sites). Yocky was in touch with us the entire time and helped us rearrange our plans quickly and ordered complimentary tickets to a show to make up for the inconvenience.We were so nervous about our first trip to China as we speak no mandarin and are strict vegetarian but honestly this was one of the best trips of our life; this company made it so easy for us and I really can't imagine having been able to do it myself any better!

After doing a long long internet research about the best itineraries and competitive prices for private tours, I decided to book with Top China Travel. My tour advisor was Lily, from Guilin. Always there to help me and accommodate my expectations and needs. I decided to visit Guilin, Yangshuo, Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang. My tour guides, Annie (Guilin) and Linda (Zhangjiajie) were outstanding; together with the drivers. I felt safe and very well looked after all the time. Unfortunately I had very bad luck with the weather, so the only thing I would encourage Top China Travel to do in the future is to advise on the weather and which are the best seasons or months to travel to each scenic spots. Anyway, I had a great time and because of weather conditions I could get some of the itineraries changed without much issues...LILY YOU WERE GREAT! The suggested hotels and restaurants were very good and exactly what I expected. MANY THANKS...I will keep the best memories from this trip. Maria (From Argentina)

Both my husband and me booked a 8 Days tour self designed, no shopping China tour with TCT in Nov 2018. Yocky is the best consultant that I have worked with. She is so responsive and patient with all my request from the planning stage to the end of the tour. I was so impressed with Yocky answering my message even at 6am in the morning due to flight delay. We are so thankful that she had always tried her best to help and take action with some unhappiness with hotels and other issues. Without hesitation, I would strongly recommend TCT to everyone interested to tour China.

My husband is from USA and I am from Malaysia, we recently planned to have our lifetime honeymoon in Kunming, so I probed though website and the sale representative Janet Chan manifests her zealous assistance through this, her email provided all the details and even her enjoyable experiences traveling with her family, this in turns projected the values of life with our loved ones during the journey. Thank you very much Janet Chan, you have indeed done a great job through your services to provide useful information. May your company has more business to come. Wei lee

We just came back from an eight days trip with Janet at TCT during March 2017. The trip was tailored to our needs as we were in Shanghai for 5 days before starting our trip. We visited Shanghai Xian and Beijing. The help and service received from Janet and TCT were outstanding. Our guides in Shanghai (Sarah) Xian (Cherry) and Beijing (Cathy) were excellent, they all knew the history and were very flexible. The guides were always on time and we had excellent drivers. We would highly recommend TCT and Janet on your next trip to China.

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.

Gulin is a magical place, words are not enough to describe the beauty of it. Also, our trip to China was wonderful. Bonnie Luo organized an 11 day Tour and it exceeded our expectations. We want to go back with our children. Excellent experience for our first time in China. Thanks Bonnie and thanks Top China Travel and all the peolple that work there!!

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.

TCT was very helpful in our Guilin trip. We are vegetarians and they made sure we were well fed. We had a private tour with TCT and my only regret was that I wish it had included a Li river cruise to Ghanshou. Make sure you ask for one instead of going by road.

Recently, we joint a group tour organized by TCT. We had a excellent experience for the whole tour including the booking process. Here are some highlights. Tour booking I found TCT from the web with very positive reviews. I decided to book my China tour with them. Now, I am glad that I made right choice. TCT assigned a very experienced tour consultant, Raylene He, to work with me. Due to various reasons, we changed our tour plan a few times including changing starting date, hotels, the tour routes etc. Raylene was very patient to work with me to make sure every planned details were met our needs. She was also very responsive in answer my queries. Our family would like to give her a big THANKS. Hotels Best Location: Beijing, Guilin Very convenient. This allowed us to do more sightseeing by walking in the evening. Hotel room: the best hotel rooms were in Xi’an. They were a very spacious full suites. It was a welcome surprise. Breakfast: most of us like Beijing better. I personally like both Beijing and Xi’an. This is because of the preference of the types of food. Tour guide Tour guide in Beijing stayed with us one day longer so we got to know her better. We felt that she provided very good service. Tour guide in Shanghai was more knowledgeable. He provided different perspectives to various topics. His explanation/opinion made the tour more interesting. In general, all tour guides were very professional and made their best effort to make the tour run smoothly. Because traffic jams are common in China, they constantly discussed routes with drivers to pick the best route and drop off locations. Drivers: Drivers were very cooperative. We had an emergency in Guilin. One of us needed to go to washroom right away. Since it was rush hour and the traffic was very heavy, the bus could not stop anywhere, the Guide and the Driver found a hospital with washroom on the way and dropped us off. We wee appreciate it very much. We also noticed that the drivers were very conscious in helping TCT to save money. For example selecting a parking location in a free of charge location instead of a paid parking lot. Flexible route arrangement We joined a group tour. This group tour went to Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai, Guilin and Hong Kong as advertised. Our tour group started with four families. After the tour in Xi’an, One family left the group for Guilin and Yangtze River cruise. In Shanghai, the rest of us merged into another group. After Shanghai, a few families in the merged group left the group tour.. We left the group after Guilin. In general, the cost of group tour is lower. TCT allowed customer to pick and choice as you wish to fit customer’s needs. They also recommended group tour where possible to help customer to lower the cost, although this made their tour management a lot more complicated. I would like to say that TCT is an excellent tour operator compare with others. All the little efforts that employees made contributed to TCT’s success. It seems to us that TCT is a well run company. We wish TCT continued success in the future.
