Great tour. We saw a lot in one day and gave me a feel for China. The kindergarten was obviously a Chinese showpiece with the children volunteering to have their photos taken. Lunch was great.

This was a great way to spend the day and visit mainland China. Our guide was excellent. It would have been helpful to know that we would not be having lunch until 3 in the afternoon and that there would be no food available on the train ride back or time to purchase any food along the way. We would have brought some snack items with us.

Good general look at the modern day China. Tour guides very knowledgeable and keen to assist. Bus could have been better. Rainy weather caused windows to fog up and a lot of scenery missed because of poor viewing. Sound system was also playing up causing difficulty in hearing guide. Worth doing

This tour is fantastic if you are after a taste of China. Our tour guide Michelle was fantastic. It is very rushed but that is what you should expect for one day trip to two Chinese cities. There is a hard sell on a few of the stops even on the bus! Still, it is definitely worth the money! Recommend.

Good trip, but very long day. Held up over and hour at Chinese border with visa problems. Long coach ride to canton, but overall trip well worth it. Guide was very knowledgeable.

Overall the tour was good and as described on the website. However, be aware of a scam where a small plate with your photo on it (which was taken by the tour photgrapher) will be sold to you at the end of the tour on the bus ride back to train station. The photgrapher is really pushy during the tour about taking your photo and now I see why. In our case, if they don't have a chance to take a photo of you during the tour they will definitely take a photo of you at the lunch table. The plate costs 150 Yuan ($25USD). Upon my return back home I thought that the photo was heated onto the plate only to find out that the photo was cut out and glued onto the plate so I can't even use it without the picture coming off! So my advice if you don't want to feel the pressure to buy anything just don't have any photo taken by their tour photographer. If you do get your photo taken, don't feel guilty if you don't purchase their plate as you're not actually wasting a plate because the photo can easily be removed and replaced with another.

Excellent one day snapshot of mainland China, conducted by expereinced guides, with a sound command of the English language.
Extremely interesting places visited, utilizing ferry, bus and train.
A very long day, and possibly too many activities included.

A long , busy , and really fun and interesting day. Alex the guide was a real character, and the intinerary was an excellent mix. Be prepared to do some walking, and lots of looking. This is real urban China you see. If you want plastic, easy, and luxury don't go.
