We book a China Tour through TCT. We received great assistance during the planning phase when our trip advisor (Rebecca) gave as details of all the visits, shows and transportation between cities and was very attentive to our demands. The tour was great, run according to the script and we want to send our words of thanks and appreciations for the efforts, knowledge, flexibility and punctuality to our guides: Lily (1) in Beijing, Lily (2) in Xian, Jane in Guilin, David in Chongqing, Helen in Yichang, Ryan in Shanghai. Many thanks to TCT for the great tour of China.

Our tour: Beijing, Xi`an, Yangtze River Cruise and Shanghi When we first made our inquires, we thought we would be hooked up with a group but due to our dates, it turned out to be just my husband and I. It was one of the best tours we’ve been on and we travel the world. First, we were immediately notified of a hotel upgrade prior to leaving home due to a National Holiday they declared in China. Our first hotel was close to the center of Beijing and everything would be shut down due to the Military Parade scheduled. Upon arriving in Beijing at 4:30am, we learned from our “super” guide, Grace, that all tours would be shut down for that one day also. Not a problem. We ended up going to the Great Wall and the Summer Palace the day before the shut down. We had plenty of time at both locations plus a delightful lunch on the way to the Great Wall. The day after the shutdown, was to the Temple of Heaven, (actually a wonderful park with everyone doing everything from dancing to playing checkers) then on to Tian`anmen Square. Here the decorations were still up from the parade and it was starting to get crowded but we started early, the Forbidden City and the Rickshaw Hutong Tour. Lunch was part of the Rickshaw tour and was in a local Chinese home. Normally, these might be spread out over a couple of days but we had to compress due to the shutdown and didn’t feel we missed anything. Again, Grace and our driver were wonderful and she knew all the short cuts etc… Then they drove us to the high speed train. Grace arranged our tickets and even boarded the train with us to make sure we were in the right seats, Loved this girl!! We were met in Xi`an at the train station by _____and driven to the Ramada Bell Tower. First on the agenda was the Ancient City Wall. This wall is about 40 feet high and probably 15 feet across. It isYou popular to rent bikes and ride around it (lots of tandum bikes) or walking or jogging. The whole distance is about 6 miles around. (visible from Google Earth) Then on to Terracota Army Museum. This is about an hour drive out of the city. This is a large complex. I don’t know what I was expecting but I didn’t expect buildings other than the hugh one built over the warriors. Lunch was provided at a restaurant on site. Back to Xi`an and a quick stop at the Wild Goose Pagoda. Here you are given into the care of a Pogoda volunteer to take you thru the grounds. The next morning we had some time before our flight to Chongqing so ___ took us to the Shaanxi History Museum. This museum has some wonderful exhibits that are well worth the time. Our flight was met by the local guide and driver and they took us to the Victoria Llanna. I can’t tell you how fantastic it is to have these guides to move you around and look out for you. There is no way we would have known to hire a local porter to carry our luggage to the boat They put a suitcase on each end of a bamboo pole and carry it down probably 60 cement stairs to a 50 foot metal walkway on drums extending out to the boat. I had to hold on to the rail just to walk across to board the boat. No way I could have handled luggage. Our guide recommended the proper fee to the porter and fended him off when he wanted more. Registration is on board the boat. Our guide helped us with that and then off he went. On board, you are seated with a group of other travelers. We were called the Foreign Independent Travelers. We had couples from France, Israel and Australia at our table. The meals are oriental but it is easy to find something you like. Every meal was buffet except for the final night. Always breads, eggs, meat and various fruits for breakfast. Lunch and dinner had rice, chow mein, various meat and vegetable dishes and always watermelon. In the bar area, I found an ice cream bar that was my daily reward! The different Georges were beautiful. On one you stop and board smaller boats to go deeper into the Goddess stream. At about 11pm on the final night, you start through the locks of the three gorges dam. Two boats go through at a time. Take a nap so you can stay up for this transition. When we arrived in Yichang, another very competent guide came on board and collected us. Hired a local porter for us and up the hill we went to the car and driver. Then on to the Yichang Airport to catch our flight to Shanghi. Our guide walked us into the airport and made sure we had our boarding passes. In Shanghai we were again met and taken via the MagLev train to the Marriott Puxi Hotel. The MagLev operates out of the Pudong airport so if you want to ride on this, you need to arrive at the right airport. (our son said we had to do this so, there you go) Our day in a took us to the Jade Budda Temple, YuYuan Garden, Old Town, Oriental Pearl Tower (clear observation floor-like you are standing on air), Nanjing Road and the Bund. All doable in one day and at an easy pace. I’m not a shopper but did take my picture at the Apple Store to show I was there! Next morning we went to Watertown. This is a town with canals (think Venice) that is 1700 years old. Walked the streets and took a cruise on the wooden boat. Very peaceful amid the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. On to the Hongqiao Airport for a flight back to Beijing. (We were on Hawaiian Airlines so needed to go in and out of Beijing ) Our last day in Beijing we went to the Pearl Market to shop. This is where one goes to by knock offs. High end handbags, electronics, toys etc. (Flight crews go there to shop) This is not a souvenir shop. The next morning another guide and driver showed up to take us to the Beijing Airport. A guide and driver are the way to travel China and Top China Travel does it well. All guides were English speaking and paid attention to any requests we had

Back in Lisbon, Portugal after a safe trip. Two weeks in China went fast. The first week, in Beijing, was for professional reasons (Conference), on our own (myself and my wife). We had visit Beijing nine years ago. We got now a better knowledge of Beijing (we use a lot the subway system this time, although taxis are affordable) and after this we discover Shangai and Hangzhou. The trip was organized quite in the last moment and TCT (Vicky Lu) was very helpful. Most of business was done by email and phone. We had visit in the past: Nanjing, HK, Macau, Guanzhou and Shenzen. This last week… the trip went ok and all the transfers were easy and the guides always on time. The drivers were nice and professional. The guides were sympatic and careful. In general the guides had a good (reasonable) handling of English. We met briefly twice Jane in Beijing. She took good care of us. Our guide in Shangai (Aiko?) made us see the planned journey and she was kind. Our guide in Hangzhu (Momo) was very easy to deal, more open and had quite good domain of English. She was funny. Lucas (we only meet him briefly) took us to Shangai train station. Nice guy. All the lunch meals were quite acceptable and the choice made in local restaurants pleased us. The Equatorial Hotel in Shangai was comfortable and up to the standards required (although no internet was complementary included in the room, why not?). The Hotel was located a little faraway from the center (beginning of West Nanjing Road) but it was easy to get restaurants near by. Since taxis are cheap in China, we could move easily to the People´s Square zone and West Nanjing Road … and other places (Pudong, etc). The West Lake Hotel in Hangzhou was below our expectations. We found the Train Stations fantastic, modern, functional and well organized… much better than in Europe. A suggestion… the local guides could give more hints for “things to do “ after the program. Myself and my wife… we are quite easy going and curious and we find our own way in order to know better the places we are visiting… but for other people visiting a few suggestions could help. Overall we had a good time. José Moura

This fantastic tour covered the cities of Shanghai, Xian and Beijing. On Shanghai the tour guide was Daniel, who was really skilled and accurate, always making appropriate description and tips related to the surroundings. For Beijing, the guide was Dean, who had superb details on every historical details for every monument. Also, he was really helpful and was always checking to make the trip really smooth. This is by far one of the best experiences I ever had!

We used Top China Travel to book our entire 16-day trip through Beijing, Xian, Jiuzhaigou, Chengdu, Leshan, Guilin, Yangshuo, and Shanghai. We had a private guide and driver in each metro area who was always there to pick us up at the airport/train station and drop us off at the airport (and help us check-in for the next flights even). Our guides spoke English well, were very accommodating to our needs, and were fun be around throughout each segment. We were a little hesitant to book with a company based in China, but we combed the internet for reviews and found many that appeared authentic and all were good reviews. While in China, we met multiple people traveling with larger groups than us but paid more money than we did for our custom trip. If you're going to China, you have to at least consider Top China Travel - they were excellent.

This is not a review of the Guilin Day Tour, but of the transportation services TCT was able to arrange for me in the remote Sichuan Province for HuangLong Scenic Area and Jiuzhaigou Valley. I didn't have a need for a tour service, but I wanted to make arrangements for transportation in this remote area because I was travelling solo and wanted to make the most of my time. TCT was able to arrange transport for me from HuangLong JiuZhai Airport (JZH) to HuangLong; the driver waited for me while I hiked in the HuangLong Scenic Area (3-4 hours) and then transported me to my hotel in Jiuzhaigou. As arranged, a driver to met me at the airport with my name on a sign and then drove me to HuangLong, waited and then drove me to Jiuzhaigou. I was able to pay in advance with Paypal. This area has lots of mountains, valleys, small villages, and not a lot of public transportation. What a fantastic service! My hotel in Jiuzhaigou was not set up to make these kinds of transportation arrangements. I can't say enough about how professional this organization is. All of my questions via email were answered quickly. I had complete confidence in Maggie Qin, the Sales Representative that made all the arrangements. She included her phone number in our correspondence in case I need to get in touch with her in China. This came in very handy because my Chinese is limited and the driver's English was even more limited. He was able to call Maggie and confirm exactly the agenda for the day. Really, I am blown away by the customer service at TCT.

My sister and I were looking for an independent tour to China and Tibet and after writing to three different agencies with our proposed route and activities we decided to go with TCT travel. Why TCT? Daniel Mo, our contact person responded quickly to every email that we sent. He was both professional and friendly. An excellent travel agent! The planning was personal. If we didn’t like a proposed hotel or tour, he came up with something better. He made recommendations about sights worth seeing and places worth skipping. Nothing was too much to ask; he wanted us to be satisfied. The other two agencies were more inclined to offer standard hotels and tours. The bank transfers were efficient. There was no hassle with money. Our route: Beijing, Lhasa, Xian, Guilin-Yangshou, Shanghai, a total of 17 days in October. Seeing Tibet was to be the highlight of our trip. Daniel arranged the Tibet permit, a hotel in the center of Lhasa and a local Tibetan guide who was truly amazing. If you have the time and are not frightened off by the high altitude (you must take medicine), go to Tibet!! That being said, our entire China-Tibet trip was fantastic. We enjoyed everything that we did, all of our tours. The hotels had excellent locations (extremely important). Our guides were wonderful and did everything they could to make things run smoothly. They all met us at the airport(s) upon arrival and assisted us at departure. They accompanied us everywhere organizing and translating and of course supplying us with information at all of the tour sights. They ordered our lunches based on what we like to eat (my sister is a vegetarian). We were never herded around like a tour group. The approach was personal and flexible. All of our transportation was arranged perfectly by Daniel/TCT; flights, trains, vans, cars, boats, bicycles and rickshaws. We could not have asked for a better introduction to China and I would certainly recommend TCT to anyone who wishes to travel independently. From the planning phase to the actual execution; excellent!

This is a must to do when you are in Beijing. It's not crowded with tourists. The The food is good but the same of all tours in China. The guide was friendly but his English was very bad, sometimes you couldn't understand a thing what he said. The communication with the company was good.

We had little time to plan this trip to China and decided a private tour was best for the short time we had available. We really enjoyed the tour 4.5 days in Beijing and 1.5 days in Shanghai. We saw all the highlights, but more importantly our guides talked to us about the people, the culture, the society, etc. We felt very immersed in what we were learning and seeing for those days. The guides were flexible, changing the schedule to accomodate visiting the Great Wall of China on a sunny day. Our hotels were all very nice, and we enjoyed having a driver drop us off right at the entrance to the places we were visiting and picking us up right when we were done. It enabled us to see quite alot in a short amount of time. We enjoyed the one on one contact with our guides (Cathy in Beijing and Sophie in Shanghai.)

We finished our trip to China (2.5 weeks) before one week, and from then we have not stopped thinking and talking about it. Undoubtly was one of the best trips we have ever had. The trip was organized for 2 couples by TCT's agent Janet Chan who did a PERFECT planning and organization. Everything worked so well, starting with the scheduled plan, the outstanding guides, the proffesional drivers, the vans we had, the excellent hotels we stayed on. Everything was well planned and perfect delivered. We will not forget our guides, Alice in Shanghai, Linda in Beijing, Sue in Xian and Juli in Guilin and Yangshou, everything supervised and controled by Janet Chan. Thanks to all the team for enabling us to know China and its great People. Benny Stein.

We started out in Beijing and then traveled by fast train and airplanes, visiting Xi'an, Guilin, Yangshou, and finally Shanghai. We saw all the most famous and auspicious sites, scenery and nature and experienced the amazing people and culture of China. Having tour guides and drivers to ourselves made the trip intimate, friendly and provided a rare opportunity to be part of the travel rather than onlookers. Eating lunch with a retired woman in Shanghai in her home was a highlight. This is one of the best trips we have ever taken. Thank you to all our guides and drivers, Janet and Top China Travel.

We travelled to china with TCT visiting Beijing, Xian and Shanghai, and had a wonderful time To begin with it was a pleasure interacting with our tour adviser LILY, who never got tired with our frequent change of program and dates.The arrangements were perfect, (the pickups and drops, the guides and other services).Being a vegetarian we were a bit apprehensive, but to our surprise it was also taken care very well. We have no reservations to recommend TCT and would love to take their services in future

Thank you Janet Chan of Top China Travel (Guilin) for making our 21-day China trip the best travel experience ever! Janet built us a private tour itinerary that was suited to our physical abilities and cultural preference, and she can and does do that for everyone. TCT specializes in individual private tours for singles, couples, and family/friends. Not group tours where there are people you don't know. We went to exotic places not often on the usual tour company itineraries: Yellow Mountain, where you climb and climb and climb, carrying your own luggage, to get to a hotel accessible only on foot. We took only what we needed, left the rest down below. Incredible vistas beyond imagination. We visited the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, the Longshen terraced rice patties (a climb so tough there were porters to haul up our luggage), the pandas in Chengdu, and the difficult-to-breathe Lhasa,Tibet. Of course we also saw the other more usual spots: Beijing, Xi'an, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Guilin. We highly recommend Top China Travel: ask for Janet!
