This tour is really interesting and not to be missed. We had a fantastic tour guide.
This was a wonderful tour with very knowledgeable and helpful guides. You learn much about the history and general interest about the area, and the guides answer all questions very well. The meal was excellent, but it's a very long trip, so I would bring along a snack.
A wonderful day. A very long day, but still wonderful. They do their best to get in as much as possible. The only negative was the panda was a bit disappointing, but it didn't take away from the tour.
This was an excellent experience with not only an extremely knowledgeable guide, but other local guides as well. I would highly recommend it, except take off the zoo stop. There was just one elderly panda. I did not like the bear that was posed for a photo with any tourist, as the bear was attached with a mouth ring. My family felt sorry for the creatures here. However we felt privileged to see the Terra Cotta warriors, to see the old and the new buildings, to learn about China and its customs, to walk an open market. It was a memory beyond words.
One of the most interesting tours we have taken. We had excellent tour guides in both Hong Kong and China. If you can only do one tour to China from Hong Kong, this is it.
We had a great time during the tour. Our tour guide made contact with us twice when we arrived to let us know about the change of pickup time from our accommodation. The local guide in mainland China was very knowledgable. As we toured during the school holidays and it also happened to be a public holiday, it may have been beneficial to be told that there may be time for shopping. Having Yuan (Chinese currency), would have been beneficial for us as we had some time available to shop after lunch.
Very enjoyable day well covered in culture content. The Pandas were naughty but amazing considered good valve for money. The only thing needs looking at is the venue for lunch staff very rude and dirty plates and chipped.
Tour was excellent. Guide was great. Disappointed with the terracotta warriors. Annoyed that we went to a jade shop and high pressure sales team. Jade shop was not on itinerary. Glad I left credit card at hotel
Interesting to see the changing face of China. The Panda Bears were delightful.
It was amazing to see some of the 'Terracotta Warriors'. A very tasty and filling traditional 'Cantonese' lunch. Extremely knowledgable guide.
Alex was a brilliant guide, who ran things like clockwork. He deserved our generous tip. The other guide was also good and provided enough statistics to fill a book.
Our higher rating is given because of Alex's efforts
Very interesting trip with excellent guide - enjoyed it immensely
The tour was very well organised and professionally run. However the Panda experience was a let down, with one Panda on display in an unnatural environment. Overall, though, it was good day with the kindergarten, lunch and markets as highlights. The Hong Kong tour guide was fabulous. Worth it.
Alex, the guide was very informative, entertaining and well organised. It is a long day and traffic in China is chaotic. Many times I thought we would be sanwiched between a truck and another bus, only the skill of the driver got us through unscathed. Lunch would have been fine, except traffic meant we were delayed and therefore most food only warm. Walk to see panda in zoo quite hilly and pace set by local guide fast. Local market very interesting with scorpions, pieces of crocodile, live snakes etc on offer. It was a place of stark contrasts and tour gives a glimps of modern China
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.
