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.

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!

My wife had travelled to China before but it was my first time. We had a limit of 2 weeks and Top China Travel's 13-day Dreamy Plateau ticked the box for duration and interesting stops, including Beijing, Xian (Terracota Army), Lhasa (Tibet), Chengdu (pandas!) and Shanghai. This was a private tour, that is to say that for each destination we were met by a guide, driver and car at each arrival airport/station and they were ours exclusively for the duration of our stay in that location. The tour was well organised by Janet Chan at TCT and we had the option of hooking up with a small group tour for the Tibet stop and saving about $200 on the overall cost, which we elected to do. The guides were all knowledgeable and very good English speakers. Drivers seemed to err on the side of safety (and that is fine by me!) and cars were all in excellent condition. As mentioned, this is a private tour so, although there is only 2 or 3 days per location, with a dedicated guide and car, a lot can be fitted into that time. In summary, the tour delivered what we wanted. I may never get back to China but I have seen as many of the sights I could have hoped for in the time I had available. And did so in some comfort. If this tour features the sights that you want to see and it fits your budget I would thoroughly recommend it.

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.

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.

In september 2016 we (2 couples from Finland) started to plan for a real encounter with Asia. Quite soon the project grew and we decided to ask for help. Top China Travel made it easy for us in China. We gave rough guidelines and Janet made a proposal based on that. After some iteration (we did not want everything) we ended up in a plan. The plan was good, if not excellent, and the price within our budget. Deal! In april we spent three incredible weeks in China. Now we are back home and have digested the whole thing. We are very happy. Janet and her guides made it so easy for us and everything worked perfect. This is incredble, because we traveled around a lot. By train, car, air...tickets, time schedules, hotels...perfect! Thank you. In really recommend. John

Thank you Top China Travel for a fabulous visit to your wonderful country.
I was apprehensive about visiting China, but thoroughly enjoyed our travels if this beautiful country.
What made the trip was having a guide in 4 of the 5 cities we visited.
Our guides meet us at the airport, took us to our accommodation, picked us up for our daily activities, returned us back to our accommodation and made invaluable recommendations for our evenings. Then made sure we not only got back to the airports, but ensured we had the right terminals, flights and saw is right through to customs.
Having a guide made sure we went to the best sights, at the best times to avoid the queues, getting tickets in advance, making sure we got the best photo opportunities in the best places. And all with informative information about sights and history. 
If we had tried to see what we saw on our own, we would have missed so much and spent a long time trying to find it all.
Thank you to Jeremy in Guilin. It was great to get out into the country side and see the hard working farmers tendering their crops, and witness up close the celebration of families remembering their departed families.
To Linda in Beijing. Your warm manner as you taught us about the history of your country, and accepting the challenges of walking the steepest section of the wall with us. Thank you.
Olivia in Xian, the Terra Cotta soldiers was awesome and your making sure we went to government stores so we we're not ripped off, when we brought a soldier and tea.
And Summer in Zhangjiajie, the glass bridge, the glass pathway on the side of the stairway to heaven and your lovely singing. Thank-you for a wonderful tour.
Our guides made our visit to China, a wonderful holiday, thank you all. We wish you well for your futures.
Kind regards from Leah, Angus, Cameron, Maree and Todd

From the planning of the trip with Janet to the amazing private guided tour given by Jimmy and driving by Mr. I, we felt cared for and pampered. We arrived on my birthday and Jimmy waited for hours for us due to a delayed flight for one of our party, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my birthday. We had asked for a hike along the Great Wall and were able to hike a five hour stretch on a nearly deserted piece of mountain trail culminating in a fantastic view of the snaking wall near Inner Mongolia. Jimmy was encouraging to us as not all of our party were the best hikers. Jimmy gave accurate historical descriptions of what we were about to see, he didn't make up answers to our sometimes random questions, but tried to find out the answers to them if he didn't know. He was personable and seemed to know what we needed before we did. Mr. I is a talented driver, navigating the chaotic Beijing streets with smoothness and skill getting us to our destinations in a timely manner. He also made sure we had water, which was essential for the hot (90*) and above days we were there. Our three star hotel the Holiday Inn Express was a new facility with great amenities. We had been worried that three stars in China might be a bit iffy, but this was very nice. We just happened upon Top China Travel on the Internet, but couldn't be more pleased with our experience.

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.

Our family of four just completed a 8 day tour with TCT. Janet helped organize a fantastic itinerary that was flexible and accommodating for our 75 year old mother. We loved the cable car up to the Great wall and Xi'an City wall. Yuyuan Gardens, the trip up the Pearl Tower and all the temples were breathtaking sites. The Capital Hotel in Beijing and Ramada Hotel in Xi'an were very good and the breakfasts diverse and tasty. Every lunch was an taste adventure and we loved the Beijing peking Duck dinner. The guides were very knowledgeable and we enjoyed our guide, Summer, in Xi'an very much. Thank you for an extremely enjoyable and memorable tour! Outstanding!!!

This 6-Day tour of Beijing was fantastic! Our tour guide, Tom, gave us lots of great information about China's rich history as we toured Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace, the Beijing Zoo, a tea house, a pearl factory, a silk factory, a Hutong tour (where we painted face masks in the Peking Opera style) and the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China! The toboggan ride down from the Great Wall was especially memorable! Be sure to include this exciting ride in your itinerary. We learned about the different dynasties, some of the Emperors who built or re-built the historic landmarks in Beijing and the fascinating Dragon Lady! We also saw a great Kung Fu show and, thanks to some last-minute arranging by Tom, we were also able to see an incredible acrobatics show after a delicious Peking Duck dinner. Tom even arranged for one of the locals at the Temple of Heaven to lead us through some TaiChi. This tour is worth every penny. I can't imagine trying to navigate your way around this huge city without a driver and tour guide. There is no way we could've seen even half of what we did in such a short amount of time. We didn't have to worry about driving, parking, buying tickets or standing in line. Tom and the driver took care of all of those time-consuming details for us. Tom taught us so much with his stories and commentary along the tour and he also went way above and beyond by recruiting the help of one of his friends to help us package up all our purchases and ensuring they would fit on the train and plane on our way home! If you are planning a visit to Beijing, make the most of your time and sign up for this tour. You will see more, learn more and have more fun! Be sure to ask for Tom.

Remember the name REBECCA. She was the tour operator who organized our trip. She is amazingly extraordinary. All my expectations were satisfied plus more, with her assistance on every aspect of our tour. The tour guides and the drivers who were marvelous with their jobs. They speak and understand English good enough to explain what the sites are. They have great knowledge of the sites. With Beijing, Our tour guide is SUNNY who was very receptive to our needs and safety. She is a very smart young lady who possess a great personality. She was very caring and treated us like a part of her family not just a client. We will really missed her smile. Thank you , Sunny !!! Our driver Mr Wang was also very pleasant and very safety conscious which is very hard to believe with drivers in China. FYI, the driving in China is CRAZY!!! THANKS again Rebecca for your great service and Sunny for your smile and Tenzin in Lhasa, Linda in Zangjiaje, Vicki in Shanghai, Sue in Xian,My appreciation for your exemplary service. We enjoyed our vacation in China because of all of you.

I went to China with my family( wife & two children) for sightseeing on 16th June 2017 for a seven days itinerary in China, three days in Hongkong & three days in Singapore . We booked our flight, hotel rooms and train tickets by our self from UAE. Hotel booking we made through Booking.com . After evaluating the charges of various tour operators in China through internet ,we engaged TCT ( Top China Travel ) for our sightseeing arrangement in China – Beijing , Xian and Shanghai. We requested for one private vehicle and English speaking guide. One Miss. Joyce was our contact person in TCT. Thanks for Joyce, she arranged everything perfectly . We reached Beijing at 2300hrs and our guide Mr. Jack receive us at Beijing airport and adrop us in the Shangri-la hotel. They provided a six setter Toyota van exclusively for us . Jack stayed with us till we completed check in to the room. Jack speak good English and sound knowledge about all the monuments, shopping area, good restaurants in Beijing area. We spent three days in Beijing- Great wall in cable car, Summer palace, Lama Temple, Beijing Zoo to see Panda and went to Xian by fast train. Train tickets we purchased online and they deliver to our hotel one day prior to our arrival in Beijing. Fast train is very neat and tidy. Seat arrangements are similar to flight- two seat on each side. There is a shelf for storing large size baggage neat the entrance. Hand baggage could be stored in the overhead storage area .Train was moving at a speed of 280-315 Km per hour, but we don’t feel any vibration inside the train. Clean toilets are provided in each compartments. It is advisable to take fast train instead of domestic flights in China. Xian our Guide was waiting for us at railway station –Miss. Christina . She also was very professional ,sound knowledge of xian sightseeing places. She use to give us a perfect description /history of each monuments to us in the vehicle on the way to each location. Terracotta warriors, Xian museum , Art museum are main highlights of Xian. We went Xian to Shanghai in flight . our Guide Christina accompany us to air port till we receive our boarding pass. In china an English speaking guide is essential to support us everywhere , since local people cannot communicate in English- even at KFC very difficult to purchase food. But in Xian Air port ,our 1700 Hrs flight cancelled at 2300hrs and send us to a local hotel by airline. Next day morning they arranged flight Xian to Shanghai . As per our fellow passengers flight cancellation is quite normal in China. Hence Fast train is always better for domestic trip . Due to flight cancellation our sightseeing time was very limited in Shanghai. TCT Guide Mr.Mark tried his best to show us maximum locations. Miss.Joyce was in touch with us in Whatsup and extended her full support to make our trip comfortable. In Beijing and Shanghai we cancelled few prearranged sightseeing due to bad weather and lack of time. But TCT refund the charges for such cancelled sightseeing . It is really appreciated, normally tour operators will not refund . We paid 30% of TCT charges to them by TT from Dubai and remaining amount by Cash US$ at Beijing . Our hotel Shangri-la at HaiDian -Beijing was very good and Sheraton at Xian & Shanghai was also comfortable . Most of the hotels in China serve pork items ,was the only thing not comfortable for my family. It is worth visiting China and I can recommend TCT since they are very cooperative , professional and reasonable price . Best time to visit China is during spring –ie April- May
