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.

I can't recommend this company enough!!I started talking to Yocky via the chat system on their website, as we wanted to do a 2.5 week trip around China. Our itinerary was:Shenzhen-Beijing-Xian-Kunming-Dongchuan-Chengdu-Guilin-SanyaHere's how things went:1) She was instant in her replies and responded to subsequent emails within the hour (and trust me, I sent A LOT of emails). She was always so thorough and efficient.2) She made us a tailor made trip that covered everything we wanted, including some slightly more off the beaten track attractions.3) She helped us keep to our budget and suggested reasonable things we could cut out when things were too expensive (not something many companies would do as they are trying to make a quick buck).4) She listened to all of our requests for things such as early morning flights, vegetarian food, and readjusting itineraries.5) All our drivers and guides were EXCELLENT; they were prompt, kind, spoke excellent English and had a wealth of knowledge about all the sites we saw. All the cars on our private tours were nice and comfortable and had water.6) Despite asking for 3* hotels, all 7 hotels we stayed in seemed like 4* to us and all included breakfast.7) With such a large and complicated trip there were bound to be a few hiccups (e.g. there was a marathon in Xian one day which meant a lot of roads were closed, so we couldn't access sites). Yocky was in touch with us the entire time and helped us rearrange our plans quickly and ordered complimentary tickets to a show to make up for the inconvenience.We were so nervous about our first trip to China as we speak no mandarin and are strict vegetarian but honestly this was one of the best trips of our life; this company made it so easy for us and I really can't imagine having been able to do it myself any better!

I wasn’t told about pick up time until very late the night before (and I had to contact them about it). They did upgrade us from a group tour to a private one though, which was nice. Our driver and guide were the same person. He picked us up from our hotel in the morning and drove us to the place where we boarded the cruise. He got our tickets for us and told us he’d be waiting for us when the ship docked at Yangshuo. The cruise itself was very nice. It was 4 hours and included a boxed lunch (the food was actually pretty good). The views were great and it was nice to be able to alternate between being outside on the deck and inside. The only bad thing about the cruise is that all the announcements about what we were passing were all in Chinese. When we docked, we met our guide and he took us to West St (really cool), Ten-Mile Gallery, and we went bamboo rafting on Yulong River (this was awesome and I highly recommend this)! At the end of the day, he dropped us off at Chongshan at our request (we had asked him for a recommendation for a place with good Guilin rice noodles and apparently Chongshan is known for that). We liked that our guide/driver took great photos for us throughout the day. However, we were disappointed that we felt a bit rushed. We also felt that he was trying to sell us side trips, which bothered us a little. Also, when we were driving back to Guilin someone hit the car from behind (it wasn’t our driver’s fault) and I hit my head pretty hard yet he didn’t ask us if we were okay.

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!

We had little time to plan this trip to China and decided a private tour was best for the short time we had available. We really enjoyed the tour 4.5 days in Beijing and 1.5 days in Shanghai. We saw all the highlights, but more importantly our guides talked to us about the people, the culture, the society, etc. We felt very immersed in what we were learning and seeing for those days. The guides were flexible, changing the schedule to accomodate visiting the Great Wall of China on a sunny day. Our hotels were all very nice, and we enjoyed having a driver drop us off right at the entrance to the places we were visiting and picking us up right when we were done. It enabled us to see quite alot in a short amount of time. We enjoyed the one on one contact with our guides (Cathy in Beijing and Sophie in Shanghai.)

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.

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!

Tour developer Yocky and tour guide Leo did a great job introducing me to these 2 cities. I loved the Acrobatic Show and also the night boat ride on the Huangpu. The skyline of Shanghai is a riot of color and movement at night! And the gardens! Leo's English was very clear and easy to understand. I also appreciated his willingness to "open up" and tell me a little bit about his family, his life,his history, his routine. I would recommend a private tour with a guide and driver and if you're in Shanghai ask for Leo to be your guide!

At first, we were a little skeptical about this company because we found it online and we had to pay the full amount before the trip. We took a chance and it turned out to be a really good, credible company. We would not hesitate to book another trip with this company in the future. This company provided adequate English-speaking tour guides. Overall, this is an excellent tour company. We would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to travel to China for a sight-seeing trip. And if you happen to go to Beijing, don't forget to ask for a tour guide named Mr. Kong. If you decide to use TCT to tour China, we would highly recommend to contact Yocky for exceptional customer service.

I used TCT to book a tailor-made 5 day tour of Yunnan for a small family group consisting of two couples of 60+ and 3 in their 30s. In the planning stage- conducted by email - their local rep Daniel Mo was extremely professional, helpful and very prompt in his replies. In the event, all the arrangements worked very smoothly. All three guides we encountered were also very professional, attentive and very supportive. We were in Yunnan for a wedding and added this short tour at the end of our trip. Time was limited so we could only see a bit of Kunming and then a few days in Lijiang but this in addition to the 5 days we spent down near the border with Myanmar made us fall in love with Yunnan. Lijiang in particular is a joy. Do go to the Impressions show as well as Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

From my first contact with our tour operator Janet, I felt very comfortable that she would organise a great trip for us. She was very clear, professional and helpful in our correspondence. We visited Beijing, Pinghao, Xian, Guilin and Shangai and everything was organised in the most perfect way! Also the guides we had along our trip were very good, helpful and flexilble and they all spoke English very well (sometimes a problem in Asia). I highly recommendvTop China Travel and Janet. Many thanks for the services...

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
