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.

As a partner for few events in China in a different localisation and with different programs, the TCT represented by Mrs Janet Chan, showed unexpected involvement on all details. Helpful hints, flexibility and many other features ( relations with local subcontractors ) made our business on highest leavel with uncommon feedback....

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

This is not a review of the Guilin Day Tour, but of the transportation services TCT was able to arrange for me in the remote Sichuan Province for HuangLong Scenic Area and Jiuzhaigou Valley. I didn't have a need for a tour service, but I wanted to make arrangements for transportation in this remote area because I was travelling solo and wanted to make the most of my time. TCT was able to arrange transport for me from HuangLong JiuZhai Airport (JZH) to HuangLong; the driver waited for me while I hiked in the HuangLong Scenic Area (3-4 hours) and then transported me to my hotel in Jiuzhaigou. As arranged, a driver to met me at the airport with my name on a sign and then drove me to HuangLong, waited and then drove me to Jiuzhaigou. I was able to pay in advance with Paypal. This area has lots of mountains, valleys, small villages, and not a lot of public transportation. What a fantastic service! My hotel in Jiuzhaigou was not set up to make these kinds of transportation arrangements. I can't say enough about how professional this organization is. All of my questions via email were answered quickly. I had complete confidence in Maggie Qin, the Sales Representative that made all the arrangements. She included her phone number in our correspondence in case I need to get in touch with her in China. This came in very handy because my Chinese is limited and the driver's English was even more limited. He was able to call Maggie and confirm exactly the agenda for the day. Really, I am blown away by the customer service at TCT.

I went on a Top China Travel group tour. Everything was so well organised that I never had to worry about anything. I really liked that the group was small and it felt like we were a big group of old-friends all travelling together, not just a passenger on the bus. Every hotel, guide, driver and restaurant was very well picked. I was very happy with how well-informed each guide was, how flexible they were to ensure we all had a great time, and their English was all very good. At every step of the way, guides had us fill in a Top China Travel feedback form which I am certain the company take very seriously since their service was so good. I will be passing on their details to all my friends and family who want to travel in China.

It has been a wonderful private tour with TCT visiting Hong Kong, Guilin, Yangshuo, Xian, Bejing. We were promptly received at every airport and train station and warmly welcomed by all of the tour guides and also brought to our departure flights and trains always on time with warm and friendly smiles. This team (Billy, Summer, Eric) is very responsible which is very comforting for a traveller. Billy (Guilin/Yangshuo), Summer (Xian) and Eric (Bejing) are very knowledgeable about these cities and towns, and, easily provide the historical and traditional context of things which provided us deep understanding and clarity to our perspectives. We really enjoyed the Four Lakes cruise (Guilin), dinner in Yangshuo West Street, the performance impressions of Liu Sanjie (Yangshuo), Imperial show and Dumpling Banquet (Xian), dinner in the Houhai lake (Bejing), Peking Roast Duck at Quanjude Restaurant. At every location where we ate this team (Billy, Summer, Eric) ensured that our food preferences were taken care of even when it meant some last minute changes to the menu. Great flexibility. Strongly recommend these apart from visiting all the cultural and historical sites. Outstanding planning by Bonnie and immaculate execution by Billy, Summer, Eric made this a wonderful and memorable trip. Thank you guys and girls of TCT.

Our family of my wife and I plus two children and their families worked with Top China Tours on an 11-day private tour. The result was a smoothly run tour with excellent guides, good buses and well handled air and rail journeys. The 5-start hotels were top notch. Our family of 8 had a fantastic learning experience going to Beijing, Xian, Gulin/Yangshou and Shanghai. We hit the usual tourist spots, but Janet, our tour director also included smaller sites and special events to enhance the private tour. She was excellent at adding flexibility to the tour so that one couple went on a pre-tour Yangtze cruise, and the family with two children got to Happy Valley park so the kids could experience a Chines theme park. Overall the whole family had a great travel experience thanks to Janet and the others at Top China Tours.

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.

After completing an upstream Yangtze River Cruise from Yichang to Chongqing we had a couple of days in Chongqing itself. We decided to organise a full day private city tour and as a result I did some research on the internet as to the options. I quickly discovered that Top China Travel (TCT), who are based in Guilin, not only had the best option but also the best prices. I contacted TCT and was immediately contacted back by Yocky Yang. She was excellent in all aspects in organising the tour for us. All communications (her English was amazing) were made through WhatsApp which worked really well, payment was made through PayPal. The actual Full Day Tour included Peoples Hall and Square, Three Gorges Museum, Huguang Guild Hall, General Stilwall Museum and the Erling Park. A huge and excellent lunch (spicy Sichuan cuisine) was also included. Our guide David (who contacted us the day before to agree hotel pickup timing) was excellent, super friendly, spoke excellent English and was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of Chongqing. He pretty much let us dictate the speed in which we moved from one place to another, and there were no shopping stops !!! At the end of the tour we expressed a wish to visit Hongyadong as we had heard good reports of this quirky bar / restaurant complex and its amazing views. As we didn't know the way he offered to walk us there which was a nice touch, indeed we had a few drinks together which finished the wonderful day of nicely. Both Yocky Yang at TCT and David our tour guide are highly recommended.

A educational tour through the history of the Silk Road, well organised by Janet Chan who was very helpful and easy to communicate with. It is an extensive tour covering great distance-the western border of China - near Afghanistan. There were different tour guides in each area and all were great and some were excellent, Abdul, Shir and Vicky were standouts! as there was little or no English spoken in the western provinces it was necessary to have a guide to explain the sights as well as organise travel and hotel arrangements-also were great in recommending and taking us to great local restaurants. as we are experienced and usually individual travellers we had to suggest that we wanted to see the local areas and sights/people, guides were happy to do so especially in Kashgar where we changed to itinerary from the lake trip to spend time in the markets, teahouses etc -well worth doing as Kashgar and the Uygur people were a highlight of the trip. The tour involved 3 rail, 4 flights and numerous private vehicle trips-all went smoothly although we were not met at one rail station and had to make our own way to the hotel-normally not an issue but at this town there was no-one to speak english so was not a smooth transition. Highlights were off course the big tourist spots of the Beijing , Xian and the incredible terracotta warriors, the Magao grottoes , Labrang Monastery,and the very colourful Zhangye Dana Landform Geological Park, and Dunhuang. We extend our tour spending extra days in Shanghai where we didn't have guides and could be free to get to art galleries etc and then went to Guilin and Yanshuo which were a wonderful and greener change from the western provinces. We were pleased to meet Janet in Guilin. Overall it was a great trip and covered the Silk Road and the rich history that it encompassed, i would suggest less time spent in Urumqi and more tome in Kashgar -there was no need to visa two lakes (we went to the Sacred lake in Urumqi but on reflection would not have that included in the tour. We highly recommend Janet and Top China Travel, but be aware they are a company that has shopping included in Beijing and Xian !

We booked our trip with Top China Travel a private tour and was amazing experience. We were 4 people , just ladies. It was very well organized, our Spanish guides in the different cities very good especially Leon in Xian, the best. They were very knowledgeable and took care of us. Every time we went to another city, they didn't leave us until the check-in at the different airports. Our agent Raylene did an excellent job, organizing our trip, she was on top of everything. Thanks Raylene for our unforgettable vacation.

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..

We were a party of 9. Four adults and 5 children, varying in ages from 8-13. Travelled to China August 2017. After contacting a number of agents in China for our holiday, Janet from TCT was extremely prompt in her responses whilst trying to finalise our itinerary she was as accommodating as possible. We had a wonderful trip to China. It is one of the most incredible countries with so much culture and history. We were greeted at each destination by a guide and had an air conditioned mini bus ready with a driver at each destination. I would say Ken in Xian and Martin in Shangahai were the better of the four. They all spoke English well they were fun and enthusiastic! My personal highlights In Beijing - were the Great wall of China_ Muttanya section. ( I chose this section to toboggan down the great wall at the end- our guide JOYCE was very cautious and did not allow us to attempt this. I was very disappointed in her lack of adventure! she could have let us adults take the ride! ) However the view whilst on the Great Wall were just breathtaking! Xian- the Muslim area- incredible food and history and The Terracotta army- unimaginable. Our kids especially like the Calligraphy lesson! Guilin- for us was not as good as we expected- partly because it was so hot and we couldn't appreciate nature as much! But it is scenic ! The river cruise was relaxing after days of non stop sightseeing! Shanghai! Its a wonderful city.! Wild! The water villages are a must! Overall, I would say that its essential to have guide in China. All our guides sourced us Halal restaurants so food was never a problem! If I were to visit again- i would pick a cooler time perhaps such as October or April as August was just too hot! I would like to thanks Janet and her team for giving us such wonderful memories in China!
