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!!

I come from Poland and I visited China with a 60 pax group to China last month. Janet was in charge of all the arrangement of our group in China. She stayed with our group throughout our stay and she was with us to Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. She was very helpful and all the arrangement was very well and especially in emergency situations - someone got lost, missing luggage The entire stay in China was wonderfull. I hope it shortly to come back here with my family :-) I am pleased to recommend to everyone Top China Travel and Janet’s service . Rich55

We had our 8 day trip from Beijing to Tibet from 5/19/17 to 5/26/17. We had a great trip. From the beginning when we contacted our agent, to the time everything is arranged, then when we actually got there, it was well organized, everything we wanted, we got it. The price was reasonable, the tour guides and drivers were very knowledgeable, caring, responsible, and flexible. We saw the culture, beautiful scenes, and friendly people there. It was an unforgettable trip, we are very satisfied.

We are 2 older couples from Israel and returned 10 days ago from China. I think it was one of my most impressionable foreign travels, if not the best. China is amazing and the tour was impeccably organized and executed by TCT. They did a great planning job, provided good advice in finalizing the itinerary, the whole tour was extraordinarily punctual , hotels were great, the guides knowledgeable and very friendly, even the Chinese lunches included in the tour that we intended to pass on, turned out, most of them , as interesting and definitely worth tasting. China is probably one of the few places one can afford a private tour without being a millionaire, and I can warmly recommend TCT as your tour organizer. Regev and Grunfeld families, Israel

My mother and I recently visited China from 4 September 2017 to 18 September 2017. Our private tour with Top China Travel (TCT) started in Beijing and ended in Shanghai. Along the way we visited Xian, Guilin and did a 3 day cruise down the Yangtze river. We were very very impressed with the services provided by TCT. The guides and drivers who met us in every city where enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and entertaining. They continuously strived to do their utmost best to accommodate us and make our experience a pleasant one. Having the guides definately made our trip a relaxing one especially with the language barrier. Our trip planner from TCT, Bonnie even met up with us in Guilin to meet us and give us gifts which was really something special. TCT made sure we experienced all the best and most amazing sites of China, both old and new! The tour was attentive and personal and I would definitely recommend it as a MUST to anybody travelling to China!!! Thank you to our tour Guides Linda, Lucy, Michelle, Cherry, Victor, Jakob and our tour planner Bonnie for the most wonderful visit. China is an exquisite and vibrant country which will definitely see me again!

We organised and booked our China tour (for myself and my wife) with Janet Chan from Top China Travel. We included Beijing , Xi'an and Shanghai. Janet is the best travel consultant we ever met. She is very professional, honest and always prompt in correspondence. All her suggestions proved really good and we achieved in our 8 days in China much more than we thought possible , way above our expectations, and absolutely stress free. Janet helped us promptly whenever necessary and all bookings (hotel, historical attractions, restaurants, intercity travels) maximized the available time and also allowed us to immerse not just in China's millennial history but also a bit in the local, normal people's life. All our guides were very good and helpful, and we felt treated like friends, not just customers, especially by Sisi (Beijing) and Vicky (Shanghai). We already plan our return to China for a longer holiday, and we will certainly book with Janet - Top China Travel again. Overall, a very satisfying experience.

We used Top China Tour for a recent trip which included Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai. This was a small group with four to six members. Top China travel did an excellent job. The hotels were all in excellent locations and the service was top notch. The tour guides all spoke very good English and knew the history of all the many places we visited. I always felt very comfortable wherever we went. Everything was organized nicely. I highly recommend Top China Travel as they provided us with a very memorable trip!

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.

After much research we decided to go with Top China Travel for our 15 day trip to China. We worked with Janet and what a wonderful help she was. Janet answered our multitude of questions with patience. She offered helpful suggestions, helped us with our tour on the spot when a plane flight was cancelled, booked us outstanding hotels, and we had excellent service. They even called us and wondered if everything was going well in China. From the moment we touched down in China, our tour guides and drivers were right there for us showing us sights, answering questions, changing plans if we wanted to see other things, and helped us above and beyond what we expected. We went to Beijing, Xian, Xining, Lhasa, Chongqing, on a Yangtze River Cruise, visited Yichang and Shanghai. Quite the amazing trip. I would highly recommend Top China Travel for your travel needs to China. They were also reasonably priced. Thanks Top China Travel and Janet. What a trip!

I wanted to visit Tibet, and based on the very positive reviews for this company, I booked with them and was not disappointed.
Our contact was Janet, and she was great both in preparing the trip (including answering immediately to our questions, even when it was midnight in China) and in making sure everything worked out smoothly (including checking at 5:00 am that we indeed got our transport to the airport).
In Tibet, we took the "5 days Lhasa & Yamdrok Lake" tour. On the way to Tibet I had a stopover in Beijing, and took the opportunity to do two days of sightseeing. I asked Janet for recommendations, and she suggested the day tours "Hiking on Jinshanling Great Wall" and "Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, The Temple of Heaven".
I think these tours were indeed the highlights of both Beijing and Tibet for us, and if I would go to Tibet again (e.g. with my wife and son, who could not come with us this time) I would book the same tours.
I usually prefer to organise my travels myself, but it seemed the only realistic possibility to get a Tibet travel permit is to book with an approved travel agency. In general, when booking with an agency, you pay slightly more and have fewer options, but on the other hand, it saves a lot of preparation time and is a lot safer if you don't know much about the country you travel to.

In Beijing, the expertise of the travel agency got our group on the Great Wall at a spot where almost no other tourists were - this spot was (almost) inaccessible due to a construction zone. On my own, I certainly would not have discovered this possibility. The other tour let us see the highlights of Beijing in one efficient and cheap bus tour, but on the other hand, it included a bit of (I guess) sponsored stops at a "Traditional Chinese Medicine" institute and a pearl factory. I would rather have paid a bit more and skipped these promotions, but they were short, and I just relaxed with a drink in the air-conditioned cafeteria. (During the preparation, Janet told me about the "shopping" that was included, and the "Jinshanling Great Wall" tour without shopping, but for the "Forbidden City" tour there was no alternative without shopping.)

In Tibet, the first day was for acclimatisation to the thin air, and indeed I was out of breath from just climbing the stairs to our hotel room. But after basically sleeping the first day, I was OK the next days, and for me the visits to the monasteries and the Potala Palace were absolutely amazing. Individual photos cannot convey the atmosphere of these large buildings with thousands of small and large rooms full of statues, pictures, scriptures, every square inch decorated, and everything with ancient traditions, but still in use today. This was the main reason I wanted to visit Tibet, and I was not disappointed. My daughter also enjoyed the mountain tour a lot, although to me it seemed surprisingly similar to the Alps (we live in Switzerland), just 4000 meters higher, and with cows replaced by yaks :-)
The only little inconvenience was the transport from and to the airport, which is about 50km from Lhasa. When we arrived, the driver was not there yet (it turned out his previous clients, who needed to go to the airport, had been late), and after he arrived, we still had to wait for some hour for the next clients to arrive at the airport (their plane was delayed). Well, that is what you get with cheap transport (included in the package). The opposite thing happened on the way back - the transport that would have been included in the package did not go early enough for the plane that was booked for us, so we had to pay 400 Yuan extra for private transport. But then this was super efficient, picking us up exactly at the promised time and bringing us to the airport at the right time to check in.

Summary: Amazing destination, very well organised tours, would book again with them!

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

Lily from Top China Travel and her staff provided us an amazing 15 day visit to China last month, which featured Guilin and Yangshuo besides other major China destinations. Our hotels, guides, drivers and itineraries all more than met our expectations. We had lots of opportunities to add to or modify our itineraries, which we did. Whatever any changes were made, our guides and drivers helped us with transport and purchasing of entries. The hotels were superb, as were the meals. I highly recommend using Top China Travel to anyone wishing an excellent visit to China.

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).

We did a private tour of Beijing and the Mutianyu portion of the Great Wall in October. The company seamlessly put together the tour for us (graciously making changes to accommodate our preferences) without any problems. All the staff I dealt with (Joyce as the organizer and Sisi as the tour guide) was absolutely fantastic. Very kind and knowledgeable people who goes out of their way to make suggestions to ensure the most amazing experience you could possibly have. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for anyone wanting to travel to China. Truly an amazing company!

This is a must to do when you are in Beijing. It's not crowded with tourists. The The food is good but the same of all tours in China. The guide was friendly but his English was very bad, sometimes you couldn't understand a thing what he said. The communication with the company was good.
