We used Top China Travel for planning our trip from Shanghai to Hangzhou. Bonnie from TCT was our contact person. She was very helpful, corresponded with us by email before our trip and was extremely responsive and flexible, trying to accommodate our interests. . Every aspect of the trip was well planned and organized. She purchased our tickets on the bullet train, reserved our hotel in Hangzhou (hotel Shangri-La), arranged for airport transfer, and excellent private guide in Hangzhou and Shanghai. We highly recommend TCT for visiting China. Thank you Bonnie.

Today we had a great day. We went to the Great Wall. Walked about 1 kilometer of the 8000. We went to a Jade warehouse. We had a great lunch there. We then went to the summer palace and enjoyed the views. We ended our day with a tour of Hutong. We had a fabulous dinner in the home of Mrs. Fan. So far our driver (Mr. Luo)and Dream have been wonderful. Five stars.

The tour of China arranged through top China travel was the best adventures ever throughout the country. Our guides were first rate and unparalleled professionalism was shown in every area of China we visited: Guilin, Beijing, Xian, Shanghai and Hong Kong. We enjoyed every moment of our privately guided tours. Our visit to China was wonderful and we cannot say enough to endorse top China travel as a first-class travel agency. We have returned to our home in Corpus Christi, Texas with wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

When we booked our trip to China we had a limited time to see everything we wanted to but Janet Chan at TCT did an absolutely amazing job at ticking every box and more. The itinerary was perfect. Journeys and accommodation were meticulously planned and accomplished. Our guides too were excellent. Alex in Beijing, Ken in Xian, and especially Maria in Shanghai were so professional and efficient that we never felt like strangers in a strange land. Many thanks TCT, best trip ever.

My wife (34) and I (35) took a 13-day trip to China during the last two weeks of May organized by Top China Travel. Our tour organizer was Janet Chan with whom we had a very excellent experience. The arrangements were flawless. We did not join a group, all the arrangements were made only for the two of us. We had a guide, a driver and a sedan car in each city. All the internal flights, cruise and train tickets, and any other ground transportation was arranged by TCT. We visited Beijing, Xian, Guilin-Yangshuo, Chongxing-Yangtze River Cruise, and Shanghai. I won't talk too much about the cities since there is plenty of information in the internet. I just can tell that China is amazing. My top favorite sites/monuments/attractions were: The Great Wall (Mutianyu section), Terracotta Warriors, bicycle ride in Yangshuo, bicycle ride in Xian City Wall, cooking lesson in Yangshuo, shopping at Tianzifang and Old Town market in Shanghai and the food EVERYWHERE. The hotel selection by TCT was good, however, depending on needs and tastes, I would recommend to discuss and agree with TCT on specific hotels after doing a little research. Reasons: breakfast selection might not be suitable for everybody (chinese breakfast is very different from occidental breakfast), some hotels might not enforce non-smoking policies hard enough (Novotel Peace in Beijing for example). The Yangtze River cruise was a really nice experience, the landscapes are unique. It's something worth seeing. We took the President #8 Ship, the rooms are clean and comfortable, however, the entertainment activities on board are limited. Overall experience in China was excellent and I definitely recommend Top China Travel as the agency of choice.

When planning our China trip we read many trip advisor reviews and noticed Janet Chan’s name came up a number of times so we asked for her to arrange our journey across this fascinating land. What a great choice we made, she listened and responded to our questions and arranged all our trip that went off without any problems. We didn’t want shopping nor group travel and she responded brilliantly. Two days hiking on the wall with fabulous guide Miko, in fact all our guides and drivers were just excellent. High speed train meant we saw lots of China’s varied countryside and went to some out of the way places. We can only say great things about TCT and especially Janet Chan if you are planning a trip. Thank you Janet for an exciting and memorable trip!

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)

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.

My wife and I have just finished spending 9 nights with top China travel and I must say they exceeded every expectation we had. The tour guides were well spoken and very knowledgeable of their area. The drivers were very safe and cautious amongst what I would believe to be the worst drivers I have ever seen. Janet, who organised our tour was very good, and everything happened on time and as promised. I was a bit of a special needs customer due to being on crutches and Janet went out of her way to ensure that I was not taken anywhere that I wasn't able to access without too much difficulty, whilst still getting me to all attractions. Best of all, we were left waiting anywhere, they were always on time as promised. We found this very comforting, WELL DONE TO THE TCT TEAM. Shaun and Janene O'Brien, Melbourne Australia

A wonderful experience travelling down the river Li in the mist - fairyland paradise all rolled into one. Our guide Arther was excellent and was able to point out places of interest on the trip. Top China Travel who organised the whole trip were extremely efficient. A must place to visit even if time is limited.

It was very well planned trip by TCT. All the arrangements like hotel stay, pick up drop were perfect. The tour I had for Xian was fun, our group also had a English speaking guide which was the best...The other day I had a private tour of Xian city with a guide..the guide was humble, polite and he showed me most beautiful places across the city and also TCT arranged awesome yummy Chinese lunch for me!!! The consultant I got from TCT was simply the best...she answered almost all of my questions very well...I bothered her every now and then but she always helped me to clear all my doubts.. Overall an awesome experience with TCT...looking forward for other trips with them.

The Top China Travel organised for 40 persons a tour in Guilin, Beijing, Xi'an area and especially in Gansu province. All things e.g. transport (flight, train tickets, bus) accommodation and guide service was professional, also in the remote area of Badain Jaran Desert or Qilian Mountain in Gansu province where organisation of the trip for a big group is not always easy. Months of contact with TCT office (responsible Janet Chan) was professional, reliable and always fast so all details were clear before the group departure. During the trip the the guide/office work was also excellent which is important for big groups (but also for small groups or family). The trip was without major problems. The smaller one, which always can happen, was resolved fast by the TCT (Janet Chan). That proves the high quality of the Tour Operator. I can recommend Top China Travel as an reliable Tour Operator for groups or individual travellers to organise a tour in most known China tourist spot but also to more remote areas. Maciej

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.
