My recommendation for you is to forget about this trip if third pole tour is the travel agency. Just the price of the tour is top class. Everything else was really just poor and you can make it much cheaper if you plan it by yourself.
Jiuzhaigou is a fantastic place to visit. Despite the bad weather we really enjoyed the sightseeing. It is a must see in China.
Our tour guide, Rochy, knew the best spots and we did not loose any time.
On the first day they booked us at the 11:35 AM flight. I discussed with the company Third Pole Tour and they guaranteed we would have time to see everything. This was a big mistake. We should have taken the first flight leaving at 06:20 AM. Me and my wife had really to rush to see everything and that was not pleasant. That was really strange, because the tour is really expensive. Probably the later flight was cheaper.
Arriving at Jiuzhaigou airport we met our guide and driver. When we entered in the car we asked for some water. Rochy simply told us: You don't have?. Then it was raining a bit and we asked if Rochy had some umbrellas for us to use just for that day. He also replied: You don't have?. I was wondering. What kind of company is Third Pole Tour? The price of this tour was almost twice the price of 2 round trip flight tickets from South America!! I hired third pole because I expected a VIP service in my honey moon. Finally we stopped on the way and I bought two umbrellas and water.
At night on the first day we went to our hotel. They say it is a four star hotel. Maybe just for the travel agency. Nevertheless nobody spoke English and the breakfast was very good for Chinese people. They did not have even butter
That was again very strange. Just beside our hotel there was a Sheraton hotel So Why have they not booked Sheraton??
For the price we paid, we really did not get the value we expected. For 50 less I would be happy with everything we had.
