My husband and I booked a two week private tour of China with Top China Travel. It was an excellent experience. Vicky, a tour consultant, offered us a very good program visiting Beijing, Xian, Zhangjiajie, Shanghai and Nanjing. We really enjoyed every location. The tour guides were knowledgeable and helpful. In Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing me made our own hotel reservation and in Xian an Zhangjiajie TCT made the reservations for us. Lunch was included in the tour and the selection of the restaurants was excellent in most locations (except Xian). Overall great tour!


Our private tour guide, Jason, picked us up at our hotel and took us to the pier outside of Guilin where we boarded our boat for a cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo. The experience was amazing!! The views were stunning, breathtaking... whichever word you want to use, but I can see why many claim this is the most beautiful region of China. And Jason was so warm, welcoming and accommodating. We learned so much about him, where he's from and the culture in southwest China. It was a great day and an experience I would highly recommend if you're visiting this part of China. We're so thankful Lily at Top China Travel helped us plan this awesome day trip!!


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.


TCT was very helpful in our Guilin trip. We are vegetarians and they made sure we were well fed. We had a private tour with TCT and my only regret was that I wish it had included a Li river cruise to Ghanshou. Make sure you ask for one instead of going by road.


Our family experienced Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai to the fullest; mostly due to Top China Travel. The arrangements, itineraries, logistics, guides, and drivers were of the highest professional standard. 
Each day was special.
The personal attention given to our family by the guides, included making arrangements to attend an evening performance in each city. 
We look forward to returning to China and will confidently work with Top China Travel in the future.


From the first email to Top China Travel with Joyce to our wonderful Tour Guide Linda and our driver I can not say more happily what a wonderful trip we have had. Linda was very Kind and very informative with all your tours. The vehicle used was at very high standard and the Driver very safe. We had a private Tour for myself and my Husband we would totally recommend this company.

The 6 day Guilin tour had been very well designed with the help of M/s Raylene He, adviser of TCT. All the time had been fully filled and extremely enjoyable, visiting special, beautiful and interesting cultural, historical and scenic places. The tour general service had been very good, specially with the professionalism of the English speaking tourist guide M/s Tang Yong Hong. I would express my appreciation for these two excellent professionals for the good time provided with this tour.

From the moment we were met at the airport by our friendly and accommodating guide, Eric and our driver, Mr Wong, we knew we were in for a great visit. Both gentlemen made our satisfaction their priority. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven and the highlight... The Great Wall. It was a fantastic stay !


Wow what can I say, This tour was awesome, Joyce from Top China Travel was amazing, she answered all our questions and organised everything for us including a birthday cake for one of our group. All our guides were friendly and knowledgeable and spoke good English, especially our guide in Beijing CC and also Sally in Xian they made our days. The Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors were some of the highlights enjoyed. The accommodation was of top standard. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend TCT to anyone who is wanting to do a tour of China. I will be using them again for our return trip.


I am a tour leader from Italy and this was my first cooperation with Janet and how lucky we met her!! We followed the trip with her to remote areas in China including some ethnic group area in Guizhou province and Sanjiang, Longsheng and Guilin, we enjoyed completely throughout the whole trip and some arrangement even out of our surprise, like we went to Janet’s home to learn how to pack Chinese Ravioli, she invited a Taichi teacher and we had a 1 hour Taichi class inside her home community. Everything was fine and our group members are all like her very much. We strongly recommend Janet Chan (janet@topchinatravel.com) as your China trip consultant! She is so considerate and carefully planned each detail of our trip. Guizhou is a very interesting and primitive place for visiting, you should include in your China trip as well! Thank you Janet! You are very professional!!

We hired TCT as a private guide with car for travel to Beijing, Shanghai and Huanzhou. TCT prepared the day-by-day program, booked first class hotels and train tickets and arranged for very good English speaking guides, among them Cathy in Beijing was amamzing. The cars were veryy good, the drivers were diriving very well but carefully. The program was followed with a very high degree of precision and the guides and drivers allowed also for flexibility. We enjoyed the trip very much and also very much appreciated the services provided bt TCT. The attractions included were paid in advance.


We (party of 4) have only positive reviews for our recent Beijing tour (sept 28 to oct 2, 2017) with Top China Travel. We read other travellers' review before choosing top china travel and they were accurate as our trip was seamless, no hiccups and Linda our english tour guide made sure we got to see as much as we could in those 5 days. Linda met us at the airport without a glitch and took us to Howard Johnson paragon, checked us in and made sure we got everything we needed for the evening. The next day Linda arrived promptly at the hotel to start our tour. Linda made sure we understood when she was explaining the history of all the sites. She knows a lot of historical information, quoting dates and names of emperors, etc. For our lunches she made sure she ordered the spicy food we enjoyed tremendously. When we were leaving Linda came inside the airport to make sure we went to the right counter to check in. Our hats off to the driver Mr. Zhao who was always on time in picking us up at all locations, despite the heavy traffic and some impatient drivers on the road. We had a very positive experience with Top china travel and highly recommend them to all travelers..


Tom was an amazing tour guide during our stay in Beijing, he was helpful, thoughtful, always on time, very knowledgeable and very flexible when we wanted to make adjustments on our schedule... thanks to him we had an amazing experience in China :-) We never had a better guide than Tom We definitely recommend him and TCT to anybody coming to Beijing and to China Thank you Tom!!!!


We visited Beijing, Guilin, Xi'an and Shanghai. Our itinerary was followed as planned. All our guides well very professional, well educated and spoke english very well. Value for money. Hotels booked were great. I would definitely travel again with TCT. They have great service and very flexible.

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.
