Arrived in Beijing, took high speed train to Xian and then plane to Shanghai. Beautiful weather, good food and great sites. Would have liked an extra day in Beijing and Shanghai.

Hotels and local tour guides were fantastic. Bus drivers got us around each city with amazing skill and precision.

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.

Outstanding - I would recommend them to anyone who wants a private china tour. We spent 15 days there and jump from place to place. The tour guides were great. always on time and did everything we wanted. They all spoke great english. They planned and booked everything for us. The company went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with everything.

Just returned home to the US after a 6 day China Tour. TCT, our guide Cathy, drivers and Janet our tour organizer all exceeded our expectations. We especially appreciated the ability to shorten or lengthen our days as our energy levels permitted - this was truly a private tour experience.

Our guide picked us up on time despite all the traffic of National Holiday Week and explained to us early on that her English was not great (however still enough to communicate some history of the village and the region) but she was very friendly and helpful. We were told we would go to another village rather than Ping'an because of the crowds which we much preferred because it meant we could explore this one (however we did not see a long hair show).

Had a wonderful time in those places. The guides were all friendly and accommodating. They can all speak good English and made suggestions on what to eat, what and where to buy for local products. They even helped us order food in the restaurants because most people in the Gansu and Xinjiang provinces do not speak and cannot understand English. Special thanks to our guide (Jerry) and our driver in Beijing who acceded to our request to drop by a small cherry farm to pick and buy cherries on the way back to Beijing from Mutianyo Great Wall. Special thanks too to Kevin Ma, our guide in Xinjiang for a detour to a grape vineyard for a photo op as well as to his treat of the most delicious melon in Turpan. The places we have visited - Zhangye Danxia Lanform, Mingsha Shan Sand Dunes and Crescent Moon Lake in Dunhuang, Tainchi/Heavenly Lake in Urumqi, and all the other places in our itinerary are beyond amazing. It's quite a surprise that China has all these magnificent places. Shoutout to Yocky, the beautiful tour operator who patiently arranged all the tours for us and made this trip as pleasant as possible...thank you! Hats off to Top China Travel!!! Will definitely avail of their services in our future China trip.

We recently did a 14 day tour of China organised by Top China Travel. The trip was organised at the last minute as a result of a previous tour with another company being cancelled. There were four of us, all over 65, who travelled together. We were extremely impressed with the tour. It was well organised, well presented and communication was very effective throughout. Much of the tour’s success can be attributed to the enthusiasm, professionalism and good communication of Rebecca Wei our contact at Top China Travel. Rebecca’s knowledge of travel options and matching our needs to the arrangements was extremely valuable. Our tour involved Beijing-Xi'an-Guilin-Chongqing-Yangtze River Cruise-Yichang-Shanghai. Our tour guide for 4 days in Beijing was Quee Na, ably supported by our driver Mr I. They both went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, exciting and educational. We really appreciated their smiling welcoming faces and safe, punctual and flexible tours. Quee Na’s knowledge of the Beijing area was outstanding providing us with plenty of great advice for eating places, shopping etc. The visits to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Great Wall and the Summer Palace were all highlights. At the Great Wall we travelled up the hill on the chairlift walked 4 towers up and back and then 2 of us took the toboggan down- great fun at our age. We stayed at the Sunworld Hotel Beijing which is in a great location close Tiananmen Square and Shopping and clean comfortable rooms. Quee Na’s insight into the local area was very helpful. We travelled to Xian by fast train, averaging approx. 295 kms per hour. Very comfortable and smooth ride. On the train it is difficult to get your luggage close to you if you have large cases but Quee Na was able to find us a safe place to store. We stayed at Grand Noble Hotel Xi'an, once again well located and clean and comfortable. We did all the usual tourist things in Xian but one of the highlights was doing tai chi on the City Wall with a professional Tai Chi Master. We then travelled to Guilin by plane. Our tour guide in Guilin was Ann, who is outstanding. She has incredible energy levels, great knowledge of the local area and China as a whole and was great at tailoring activities to our needs. She was ably supported by our driver Mr Wong. We really enjoyed Longji Rice Terraces Scenic Area (Dragon's Back), including a cable car ride. These terraces are built into the hillsides. We also went Li River Cruise (about 4 hours from Guilin to Yangshuo. Impressive scenery while cruising down the meandering river to Yangshuo. We stayed in Yangshuo for dinner to enable us to see The Show of Impression Liusanjie. This was organised by Ann and is highly recommended as an optional activity in Yangshuo. We stayed at Lijiang Waterfall Hotel. Once again a great location and providing 5 star rooms and service. While in Guilin we had an opportunity to meet Rebecca Wei who is based there who made us feel very welcome and double-checked to make sure all our needs were being met. We then travelled by fast train from Guilin to Chongqing. Ann made sure we were well organised and punctual for the train and sent us off with a huge smile. The Yangtze River cruise boat departs from Chongqing. We were on the President No.7 ship which holds up to 500 passengers; approximately 80% were Chinese with the rest quite a mix from around the world. The River Cruises in China are a little different to Europe, pithed more at economy class but the ship was clean, service was good, food was fine and the scenery through the 3 gorges awesome. We didn’t do the optional tours as we needed a couple of hours free to rest up after such a hectic time to date. The three gorges dam tour at the end was extremely interesting We flew from Yichang to Shanghai. Our base was the Sunrise on the Bund hotel. Probably the best hotel overall on the tour. Our guide in Shanghai was Leo. He is energetic, passionate and we all quickly became friends. Our driver was Mr Wong who beyond expectations to ensure our travels were safe and enjoyable, including making sure we got to the airport in plenty of time for our flight. Overall a great trip, very good value for money and we would have no hesitation in recommending Top China Travel to anybody considering a China Tour.

In April and May, 2017, my wife and I went to China. We booked our trip online from Australia. The girl we dealt with was called Rebecca. She was absolutely fantastic. We changed our minds, about our destinations, many times, in the planning process but Rebecca was always there to give us advice and make suggestions. At one stage, we hadn't heard from her, for about two days. She apologised for the delay because she got married!
We went to Shanghai, Guilin,Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Chengdu, Lhasa, Xian and Wuhan. We had the good fortune to meet Rebecca when we were in Guilin. It was great to meet the person, who had made our trip so absolutely successful.
We found out about Top China Travel, via Trip Adviser. We can only say, from our experience, if you are going to China, book through them and ask for Rebecca. Rebecca was a pleasure to deal with and she is an absolute asset to this company.

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

From the minute I contacted Vicky at Top China Travel to book our holiday, to the time we were taken to Pudong airport for our flight home, the experience was perfect. My wife and I visited Beijing, Xian and Shanghai and all of our tour guides were fluent in English, very knowledgeable and very friendly. Thank you Vicky and all at TCT and I will definitely be in contact when I return to China.

I am from the USA and currently live in Beijing. My wife and I wanted to visit Xian mainly for the Terracotta Warriors. I looked online for tour companies and began to see just how many were in operation. I did as much research as I could to ensure I did not land in Xian without someone there to followthrough on our arrangement. I finally settled on TCT after emailing them for more details. Mimi was extrememly responsive and was able to help build a private tour for us. I paid via PayPal which I like to do as often as possible while overseas. Our guide and driver picked us up from the airport, took us to the sights, and then to our hotel. The next morning they were right there again and dropped us off at the airport. There's something about logistics that I love and TCT has got it down. Sometimes you don't know what you are going to get with foreign companies. Needless to say, this tour company isn't one you need to worry about. It was impressive. All the best.

The country is beautiful and glamorous from the inside and the outside. Including the people. Special thanks to our tour guide,LILY who made our trip memorable She planned everything from our our tickets to our food and shopping. Her service was excellent just like her behaviour. We had a misfortune of losing three newly bought phones. Even though we couldn't get the phones back lilly helped us through all the procedure from the police station to the street cc tv. And the lunch she provided us today in front of the great wall was perfect and elegant. Thank you for everything lilly. Hope we get you the next time we visit china again. And visit my country bangladesh anytime you like with your daughter and husband :)

Top China Travel is the the tops! I booked an 21 day tour of China for my husband and I and from the very first contact with Lily Lui I was totally impressed. We communicated via e-mail and Lily was very quick and helpful with her responses. Because this was not our first trip to China, I wanted an itinerary that was different from the norm. Lily's recommendations were top notch. The hotels she used were top shelf as we requested. Our guides and drivers were fantastic. What impressed me the most was that when we were in China, Lily called to speak to me and make sure everything was going well. When I ran into some issues due to altitude sickness, I contacted her and she had the itinerary changes done and finalized within an hour. This was a private tour with guide and driver and I honestly can say there was not one thing I wished we had done differently. Thanks to Top China Travel and Lily our trip to China was perfect. I will definitely be contacting Lily when we return to China for yet another visit.
