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.

We had the most wonderful time in our trip to China, thanks to TCT. We had a great team in every City: Leo in Shanghai; Sarah in Guilin and Yangshuo; Snow in Chengdu, Carol in Xian and Jane in Beijing. They prompt met us at every airport, and train station and welcomed us with warm friend smiles. We appreciated how responsible they were and always on time to take us everywhere we were going! They made our vacation the most memorable ever. We learned so much about China's history and the fascinating stories they shared with us! our trip organizer Janet had lunch with us in Guilin and introduced her daughter to us. we felt like part of the family:) and that's how we felt the entire trip, like we had our cousins waiting for us on every airport...what an AMAZING trip. we highly recommend TCT! Very special thanks to Snow for re- arranging our visit to the Panda bear sanctuary for us to take pictures with the baby Panda! Thanks again to Leo, Sarah, Snow, Carol and Jane. We loved you guys!!!

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 would highly recommend TCT to anyone. We did a 2 week private (Beijing, Xian, Lhasa, Chengdu & Shanghai) tour with them and from the moment we arrived we felt like we were part of the family. Every guide was attentive, informative and an absolute pleasant to travel with. Special thanks to Rebecca for organising our itinerary and also a special mention to Tony, our guide in Beijing.

We just got back from a week long trip in China covering Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu with TCT. We did Hangzhou and Shanghai on our own. TCT was suggested by a friend since his friend had used them before. My wife and I found Tina from TCT to be excellent and very helpful and accommodative in organizing our trip - including helpful suggestions on where to eat etc. she even organized our inter city travel tickets - we flew on China Eastern. Our guides in Xi'an (Paul) and in Chengdu (Lin) were simply fantastic. Paul was extremely professional, knowledgable and helpful. His explanations and English were super and he has lived in the US before. Lin was extremely friendly, kind and helpful - we had a fantastic time with her. Her English was super and we had a lot of fun in the trip. Both Paul & Lin are extremely good and enthusiastic about what they do and anyone having them as guides are very lucky - they even helped us in ordering food and interacting with the locals and adjust our itinerary. In Beijing you need to have strong legs and our guide Grace surely had them. Grace is friendly and energetic. The ground transportation used was excellent and the drivers were safe and courteous. Overall a great experience and would definitely recommend TCT. We stayed in the Shangri-la chain of hotels throughout our trip and they were simply fantastic - excellent service, breakfast, locations and room - really felt like a home. Absolutely no regrets in our choices for Our China trip.

With TCT I have organized a 21 days tour for my family: my wife, my 9 years old daughter and me (in august ) We asked to Rebecca (our TCT consultant), who has patiently worked for more than 6 months on all details, to see, not only the most interesting things but to understand a little the Chinese way of life. The goal of the journey was to let my daughter to see different way of life and unusual (for us) landscape. The other objective was to visit China like a Chinese tourist can do. All these things weren’t easy to organize, but after more than six months of planning we were exited to visit the Country and we had really high expectation. It seems impossible but all the goals have been reached and TCT make us to live unforgettable visit of China. During the organization of the tour Rebecca suggested us to add some destinations to our trip and that makes our trip something unique. One the most interesting thing is that in most of the hotel (all 4 stars – western standard- and really comfortable) we never meet western people, that mean we were out of usual tour. All the guides had high professional behavior, knowledge and did their best to let us to see as much as possible. Consider that we were with a 9 years old child and nothing went wrong. All the drivers, considering the traffic situation in China, have been super! They did all the best in order to take us closer to all attractions in the safest way. Guides and drivers has been very flexible. Some days we have been together more than 12 hours! All the guides make arrangement of the tour in order to avoid queue and visit more. That has surprise me a lot. We have visited places like Mt.Huangshan, Hongcun Village (set of the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Tulou in Fujian , Shaolin Zen Music Ritual in Denfeng (a show that worth the journey in China – the biggest stage we ever seen - , suggested by Rebecca) or arhat clay statues at White Horse Temple in Louyang ( if you have seen Terraccota Army in Xi’an you will remain astonished in front of this sculptures), descending from Grat Wall with a toboga, ride a bike on Xi’an city wall or visit a daily market in Beijing. We have attended to the Mask Changing show and 1000 Hands Dance , few minute show but hard to find in a show. Just to list some of the wonderful things we have experienced. But, the most astonishing thing has been that in some places “we were the attraction”. Western people were so unusual that parents asked to my daughter to take pictures with their children !!! Very Chinese !!! In Guilin we meet Rebecca from TCT after little bit less than one year of e-mails ! A great moment too. The only thing that TCT could not manage was the weather, but we have been lucky. Quite always blues sky and just one day of heavy rain. We could not ask more ! A special thanks to our guides Tony around Huangshan, Candy in Shangai, Mike in Xi’an, Mina in Fujian and Shane in Luoyang. And a special special thanks to Linda in Beijing and Tina in Guilin that have done so much for us in order satisfy all our wishes! Deep knowledge, flexibility and enthusiasm made us to enter in Chinese culture. . Interesting, safe and well organized! We are thinking to visit more China in the future with TCT, we trust them !

We were driven to the mountain where the terraced fields were found by Ocean and his driver. When we arrived, the weather was threatening and then the rain came. Fortunately, there is a fix; the sedan carriers volunteered to carry us up the steps to our hotel for a reasonable price each (420 Yuan total, about $70). It was fun, we stayed dry and off the uneven steps in pouring rain. The Ping An Hotel was fine, although beds were a bit hard. View of terraced fields was awe-inspiring in every way!!! We got pictures on our balcony and at a spot Ocean recommended. We returned to Guilin the next morning. We thank Top China Travel for a wonderful tour.

Top China Travel provided an intense 15 day tour of China. Now that we look back we realize how much we accomplished. It was more expensive than a regular tour, but it was worth it. Very few local people actually understand and speak English, so having a guide to take us around was a great help. We had a different guide in each area, but all were great; Alex, Liang, Kellie, Annie, Gerry, Adam, among others, really made each city trip enjoyable. They provided an overall view of their area, including the main sights and picked an excellent restaurant for our lunches so we were able to sample lots of different local foods. We had a car just for us and the guide basically picked us up at the airport/train station and ended his assignment after checking us in for our flight/train ride to the following city in our itinerary. We couldn't have done everything we did had it not been for the organization of this custom tour. Only issue we had is that we were only 1 day in Xian and therefore missed the cultural night show since we arrived too late into Xian to make it that night; and the following day after touring the Terracotta Soldiers we left in the afternoon for our next stop. Would have liked to have been told about this famous show so we could have maybe rearranged something. Other than this, Top China Travel made our China experience a memorable one.

We are 2 older couples from Israel and returned 10 days ago from China. I think it was one of my most impressionable foreign travels, if not the best. China is amazing and the tour was impeccably organized and executed by TCT. They did a great planning job, provided good advice in finalizing the itinerary, the whole tour was extraordinarily punctual , hotels were great, the guides knowledgeable and very friendly, even the Chinese lunches included in the tour that we intended to pass on, turned out, most of them , as interesting and definitely worth tasting. China is probably one of the few places one can afford a private tour without being a millionaire, and I can warmly recommend TCT as your tour organizer. Regev and Grunfeld families, Israel

The tour wasn't that bad, we visited the forbidden city, temple of heaven and the summer palace in one day. The tour guide Vic was nice and if we had some questions he tried to answer that. We also went to the pearl market where my friend bought some pearls for a good price. To cut a long story short the trip was fine but my friend and I we wished we had more time to look around in the forbidden city and summer palace.

Janet Chan of TCT organized a fantastic trip that started at the Dongxi border crossing with Vietnam into Nanning, the Chenyang Bridge with the Dong minority people. Then we went on to the Longji Rice Terraces with the Ping An Zhuang minority. Overall these first few days were fantastic from both a tour and educational perspective. Following these stops, we went to Yangshuo, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong. All the travel went flawlessly and the accommodations were great! 

The best part of our time in Guangxi province was the excellent guide- Wendy! If you ever have a chance to request a guide- please ask for Wendy! Guides make a big difference in how you learn and appreciate the travel. I have a LOT of experience with different guides- I lead study abroad trips every year. Wendy is informative, energetic, great with the students, flexible, and a joy to work with. We were able to request Wendy as our guide, whom we had two years before on our previous study abroad trip. 

Overall, our experience with TCT, Janet Chan, and Wendy Zhang was exemplary.

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!
