We have just returned from a very satisfying trip to China. One of the highlights was the lovely city of Guilin. We had no idea that this would be such a pleasant spot in which to stroll around and enjoy the bridges and walkways. The temperature was comfortable and we felt at home walking around the park, footbridges, and along the lakes. Helen and Jim from Canada

On boat on LI RIVER from Guili to Yangshuo. 83 Km throught mountains, green hills and clear waters, a scenery that takes you back to ancient Chinese paintings. You can see bamboo boats and fishermen with straw hats and cormorants, people in camping on the riverbanck, buffalo grazing. Above all, you understand that there is a China different from the one of the great metropolises and you thinK " Oh, what a wonderful landscape...what a wonderful litgh, what awonderful air !"

Our tour was organised by Janet Chan, whom I would highly recommend to anyone planning a holiday in China. The original itinerary was set some 5 months in advance and involved 12 different guides and drivers, 10 hotels and a cruise on the Yangtze. As could be expected, a number of issues arose in the subsequent period prior to our departure including areas being affected by earthquakes (requiring a change of itinerary) and specific flights being cancelled. None of these caused us any concern as Janet dealt with them in the background and emailed us the changes as we moved around the country. The ability and attitude of the chosen guides and drivers varied from location to location, however, none were unsatisfactory and a significant number were excellent. Despite there being three train trips and six flights, the designated TCT guide was always there to meet us on our arrival, which after 3 weeks across a broad itinerary was a great comfort. Most of the guides displayed a high degree of flexibility and were able to vary the program under their control to ensure that we covered all of the items and attractions that we had on our itinerary. In some cases this involved changing the daily schedule completely to ensure that we covered everything that we wanted to see. On a general note, TCT and Janet Chan in particular took great care of us despite some unplanned changes to our itinerary. An earthquake in western china altered our plans somewhat and she stepped up and organised on short notice another part of China to see. Cancelled flights and delayed flights were taken in stride and train trips organised so nothing was missed off our bucket list. Because of her organisation with the local guides and drivers we were never left stranded and she was always willing to be on call if there were any problems. She was very willing to hear our feedback and met with us once personally on our trip to talk face to face about our experiences. I would without reservation recommend TCT and our agent Janet Chan to anyone travelling to China in the near future. Happy travels!

I did this tour with my wife and our adult son in early February - in fact it was Chinese New Year's eve day. We enjoyed it. We did the three star version and were impressed with how easy the guide on the tour bus made it for us. She was attentive and her English was great. The three star boats are remarkably comfortable. We were expecting wooden benches, but the cabin was carpeted, well appointed, and very comfortable. We spent much of the trip on the deck looking at the scenery of the Karst Mountain Formations, which was pretty incredible. At the end of the trip, our guide offered another smaller river cruise that included a cave, but we chose to go off on our own. We rented scooters and had fund going out to see the huge Banyan tree outside of town. Our guide had given us clear instructions on how to find the hotel where the bus picked us up on time for a drive of a couple of hours back to Guilin.

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

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.

Enjoyable busy day!7 am start covering Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City early on amidst tight crowds followed by an unexpected stop at Pharmacy institute where we were able for a small “tip” enjoy a short foot massage and consultation with a Chinese medicine expert. Unfortunately this turned into an embarrassing pressure sell of his prescribed medicines which left us underwhelmed!Lunch was acceptable followed by a wiz around the Temple of Heaven. On the way to our final destination the Summer Palace we had another unexpected stop and “selling” opportunity at a pearl factory (store actually). Guide had his own sense of humour and opinions which were often unintelligible or off the wall and his English Weaker than other “English” speaking guides that we have experienced in China.All that said, we had a good day out in some very worthwhile places to visit and felt it value for money. Our favorite was the relative peace of the Summer Palace surroundings and in particular watching the old guys flying kites at heights I could not imagine possible.

We travelled to China for our honeymoon and selected Top China Travel as our travel partner when visiting Zhangjiajie and Guilin. From the moment we spoke to Vicky Lu (the travel advisor), we knew that TopChinaTravel was a reliable company to join. Victor, our guide in Zhangjiajie was excellent. He took us to the best spots and gave us some valuable tips in order to avoid queues and the masses. We spent 4 days in Zhangjiajie. It was raining heavily on the first day and we didn't get to see much, but Victor went out of his way and changed around the itinerary in order for us to see the attractions on other days. We really appreciated this! In Guilin we were met by another excellent guide Ms. Liu. She was very helpful and noted carefully our wants and needs. We were never met with a negative answer whenever and whatever we asked. On the whole, this was an adventour of a lifetime for both myself and my wife! We definitely recommend Top China Travel as a tour operator in China!

The 8 of us just returned from an amazing trip to Beijing, Xi’an, Lhasa, Chengdu and Shanghai. I must admit we were a bit nervous, organizing the trip from afar. However Lily Li from TCT was in constant communication with me, answering all my queries with professionalism. We had exceptional tour guides and drivers all the way. The service ran like clockwork yet allowed flexibility in what we wanted. We are thrilled with our experience and will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who are looking for small group tour, flexibility and good value for money. Thank you Lily from TCT.

The tour was well managed although expensive. The cruise vessel was fine and pretty much as you might expect. The scenery however is worth some minor hassles and a must do if in Guilin. It takes some 4.5 hours up the river and if you avoid the tourist on the road trip back it will take another 1.5 hours. Allow an hour in Yungshuo which is interesting but a tourist trap.

We generally do not use tours when we travel. In fact, I normally don't enjoy tours at all. However, given the language challenges in China, we looked at several options and eventually settled on Top China Travel. We used TCT in Beijing, Shanghai and Long Ji area. All I can say is that I was blown away by the professionalism and service of each individual guide within each city. Our guide in Beijing was extremely knowledgeable and really gave us an amazing tour of the city. In Shanghai, our children left our IPad on the plane, and the guide volunteered to go get it for us (the airport is 40 min outside of the city). The third and final guide also went far and above what was expected. She stayed with us until the end of each day and we could tell that she really had a passion for sharing the Chinese culture with us. Each city guide provided unique personalities and service and each was in it's own right amazing. Quite honestly, we were initially reluctant to use a Chinese tour operator, but we are so very glad we did. I feel like we lived in China during our two week trip, as opposed to just visiting. This experience was directly related to the exceptional service provided by TCT. I highly recommend this group!

Ms. Christina is very proficient in her English and knowledgable of the city of Xian and Chinese history, which made our trip to the terra cotta warriors and the museums much more engaging. She is easy to converse with and very nice company. She suggested a traditional Chinese show with a hot pot dinner that were both mediocre but a good representation of the history of traditional China. Both lunches that were part of the itinerary were really delicious and lots of food. Xian is a great city lit up a night, beautiful buildings and gardens. Safe to walk around and they have underpasses for pedestrians so you don't have to cross the main road. We did a bike tour on top of the city wall that was very bumpy, but nice early in the morning - it started getting crowded after 10:30am. Our hotel was in a great location with a nice coffee shop in the lobby. Xian was a nice historical city with a great tour guide!

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.

The scenes were amazing. The boat was air conditioned, food was mediocre. A four hour tour that didn't disappoint. A short walk to the hotel.
