A bit rushed in some places but got to see most of what I wanted. Gave me the experience of getting around the city so was able to return to places on my own where I wanted to see more.

Private Round-Trip Transfer: Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK)

Beijing, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Pick up from the airport was excellent, but my return pick up from the hotel was an hour late. 15 mins after pick-up time I called the agent, Hantang, who said they would check and call back. After another 15 mins got call from driver who said he was delayed in traffic. Lucky I allowed plenty of time so I caught my flight, but a rushed anxious end to my holiday. No explanation as to why driver had not called hotel in advance when he knew he would be late.

Li River Cruise Full Day Tour of Guilin and Yangshuo

Guilin, China

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

One of the must do trips in China - amazing scenery. There were about 6 boats doing this trip at the same time. To appreciate the scenery you need to be on the top deck rather than looking through glass windows - but no seats, and it's a long cruise. Lunch was inconveniently served early, just before we reached one of the most picturesque parts of the river, so interrupted by dash on deck to get better view. Food rather poor but sufficient. Yangshuo disappointing as highly commercialised shopping trap, but recommend optional (extra cost) tour into countryside and a restful river trip on small bamboo boats, similar to the English punts.

Arrival Transfer by High-Speed Maglev Train: Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Hotel

Shanghai, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Met on arrival and helped with my baggage to train. Comfortable drive from station to hotel. Guide very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient - recommended. This trip can be done much cheaper on your own, but if, like me, you've had a long flight and it's your first time to Shanghai it takes the stress and anxiety out of the transfer.

Shanghai Half Day Morning or Afternoon Sightseeing Tour

Shanghai, China

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Pick-up time was earlier than scheduled - I was the only person on this tour so joined 2 people who were on day tour with their lunch included. I had option of going for a walk while they ate, or joining them at my own expense. The food was very poor. Free time for a stroll along the Bund waterfront, then to Yuyuan which is attractive but rather crowded. None of us were interested in the silk factory, so on to the "Former French Concession District" which is a joke. Buildings are not very old and there was nothing "French" about the district. A few expensive designer shops and a pedestrian area with outdoor cafes - typical of today's European cities. A novelty if you're Asian, but nothing of interest to Europeans. Not much point in stopping here unless you want to just sit in one of the cafes.

Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Got to see what I wanted in a day, though very tiring and a lot of wasted time. This was the morning tour plus the separate afternoon tour with a change of guide and bus after lunch. Annoying doing hotel drop-offs for those only on morning tour before going to restaurant (check drink prices before ordering). If you have the time it would be less tiring to take these separate tours on different days. Lot of time spent standing in line, and sun was very low by the time we got to top of Corcovado - great views of the city, but the sun was sinking behind the statue of Christ.

My Review

Great to be met and warmly greeted coming out of customs and driven swiftly to my hotel in comfort. Driver (in both directions), Maria de Fatima was ready and waiting in hotel lobby for return transfer and provided an excellent friendly service. I forgot my jacket on the back seat but as I was returning to Rio GIG airport a few days later in transit Maria kept it safe for me and returned it personally to me. I really can't praise her enough!
