My Review

Overall, this tour was great...the places we visited were very interesting and the guide was extremely informative. The guide, however, was very much inserting his own personal opinion about how much better China was than all other countries. I think it's great to have pride in your country but not to the degree that you are uing disparaging remarks about other countries...or the people from those countries. Again, it was a great tour and the guide very knowledgeable but I could have done without the propaganda pitch.

Outstanding...met us right where they said they would and on time. I highly suggest this "tour" if you do no speak the local language because, otherwise, you will have a difficult time conveying where it is you want to go.

My Review

This was a pretty good tour but not the most interesting sights to see. I love history and beautiful settings but, somehow, this area just didn't seem very impressive...and it is quite a distance from Shanghai...lots of time in the bus.

My Review

It was absolutely fantastic to be able to pick the sites we wanted to see...and our guide was great...super friendly and hard working. Most of the standard tours had 2-3 cool things to see/do, but then blended in a couple that were not appealing to us. Arranging our own tour allowed us to choose only those sites that interested us. One bit of advice. The price of this tour is very reasonable but could have risen very quickly (by ~$230) if we chose to utilize their car to get around, but we chose to use local taxis with our guide. Although the driving was a bit more aggressive, it was still safe...and we had no problem at all flagging down a cab. This approach saved us HUGE bucks...and the driving just added more excitement. This was a great tour!
