The Shenzhen sightseeing tour gives one a quick glimpse into China - culture and life. Shenzen is a very modern, and new city. Well laid out, planned and organized. May not truly represent the rest of China - but then a very convenient day trip from Hong Kong.
The focus of the tour was the second part - shopping.
The tour was very well organized, everything taken care of - from pick-up at your hotel to final drop off - group visa, transport, lunch. Yvonne was an outstanding tour escort and the tour guide at Shenzhen, Daniel was very nice and friendly. Overall a great tour
This was a great tour. Ming and Daniel were excellent guides, who knew what to see and where to shop. They were also very helpful in suggesting reputable shopping outlets.
Included lunch was also very good. First Class train travel was quite comfortable and Ming kept us entertained and informed.
This was a great day and convinced me that I really want to see a lot more of China in the not to distant future. We had two amazing guides who looked after us so well. Shopping was good too. An absolute must.
I really enjoyed this tour. The people were great and Ming our tour guide was very Knowledgable. A little bit of pressure to buy at some of the places we went to but nothing that you couldn and #39;t handle .... Lunch was delicious and please haggle when you go to the shopping centre... They expect it
If you are interested in shopping then this is the right tour to choose. The guides were knowledgeable and genuinely cared about the tourists. The tour was not just about shopping, there was also an insight into life in China. The lunch was delicious, the city was clean and the people were extremely friendly. The only thing I would like to see added are more quality outlets rather than the 'junky' shopping stuff. This was a fantastic tour
Our guide Ming was excellent, meal was good and shopping very good.
what a fab day out .... wonderful elton and steven are the tops in travel guides..I give them 5 gold stars.Very good sight seeing ..lunch and shoping !!!!!
What a great day. Ming our guide from Hong Kong was fantastic, as was Steven when we got to China. We had a small group of 8 which was perfect and both guides made the day thoroughly entertaining. Got to see some interesting things as well as a great lunch and finished the day with some shopping. All of us loved it. Thank you Ming and Steven.
Fantastic - Yvonne and Aaron were great - interesting and helpful.
This tour was everything we expected and more
We would certainly recommend this tour to our friends.
The tour was excellent we were picked out at our hotel then taken to the bus that took us to the train station to take us to China. The tour guide Yvonne was so lovely and knowledgeable and so was the China guide Stephen. We had a lovely tour in Shenzhen to various places as stated in the itinerary then we had a lovely Chinese lunch then the shopping centre was something else you could shop till you drop.
Couldn't have asked for a better guide Young Mark was awesome and the whole tour was a great day :)
I done many tours in Beijing and Hongkong and this particular day lunch was the best of the best so thank you Young Mark my mum and I had a great day
This tour was the highlight of our stay in Hong Kong. Both guides were awesome. (One guide took us to the China border when another took over from there. We were very lucky as our group was very small. The personalized attention was appreciated! The shopping was spirited and lots of fun. The train ride was easy especially since we were escorted by our guide. Our guide in China was so smart and lots of fun. He gave so much information and wanted to learn from us too! He was a hoot and wanted to learn American and Australian slang. We had a very fun day! Bought some great souvenirs!
Had a great tour, no problems with pickup and mark our guide in China was great. Shopping was good but you need to know your rate of exchange and have your own calculator with you.

We really liked this tour and will recommend to friends. Tour started out with our Hong Kong guide Don taking our group for a brisk walk to the nearest train station from the Sheraton Hotel. After the train trip to Shenzhen Don got us thru customs without hassle. After we got thru customs we were meet by our Chinese guide Mark. We were soon on the bus to see the sights of Shenzhen, Mark kept us entertained throughout with his Aussie slang antidotes. The lunch at a local Chinese Restaurant was great and the shopping experience was rewarding. Could not ask for better tour guides than Don and Mark.

This was the best day we spent on our week long visit to Hong Kong and Shen Zhen. Our tour guide Mark was excellent and the fact that he had a special affinity with Australians made us all feel welcome and special. This tour is jam packed with information, purchasing opportunities and beautiful China.
Great tour , our guide in hong king was really helpful, Ton was fabulous bloke. We had a funny, informative and just plain nice tour guide in Shenzhen. Mark , our guide, made us feel really welcome and was very patient explaining anything we needed to know. Lunch was one of the best meals we had while on vacation. We all gave this tour a 5 star rating

What a wonderful day, enjoyed everybit of it, the gardens were beautiful, tour guide was very funny and very helpful
The tour was exactly as described. The Fairy Gardens was definitely a highlight, however the hard sell at the Silk outlet and Terracotta warrior museum were a bit much. The shopping at Lo Wu was great with good bargains and excellent quality. Young Mark (the guide) was very knowledgeable and a great communicator, funnty too. Overall it was a fun day with a nice group.
The tour was very well organized and top marks to Don and Mark - especially for his sense of fun and humour, wit and Aussie 'speak'. Good on ya mate! The lunch was excellent as well. We will highly recommend this tour to all our family and friends.
Excellent, the tour guide Mark is the best He did a great job I had my mother with me and she was impressedof the services. Mark is very polite, care and patient. Great job Mark. I would recommend this tour to my children and friends
Very well organised tour. Both the Hong Kong (Don) and Mainland China (Mark)guides were considerate to the needs of individual members of the tour group. I loved the personal shoppers that Mark arranged for us at Lo Wu Mall but this may have only been possible becuase we were a small group of 7 people that day. It made finding the items we really wanted so much easier in the huge complex of shops.
I loved this tour...going into China was an experience. I loved catching the train with the locals but when I was tired on ther way back we were given a first class ticket to ensure a seat. The shopping was great I didn't find the shop people too pushy, I think they were worse in Hong Kong at the markets. I got some great handbags and jewellery. The tour guide Mark was awesome and speaks great english. He will great you with a G'day cobber, hows it going mate!
