5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This tour was amazing. It was extremely well organized and everyone from the guides to the locations and experiences were wonderful. Starting in Shanghai, we traveled to Xi'an where we were met by Sunny at the airport. We spent a fabulous day visiting all around Xi'an and especially the Warriors. Sunny was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Next morning we were off to Beijing where we met Cris and continued our adventure. Cris was also a wonderful guide and really taught us so much. Never did I anticipate walking on the Great Wall. I know both these young ladies really made this trip so special for us. I just wish we could have had more time with them. If you get the chance to take this trip, do it. Fabulous.

This tour was amazing! Every detail was accounted for! From picking me up from my hotel, help checking me in on my flights! Worth every penny as I was a single female traveling alone. I felt safe! The tour guides Sonny in Zi'an and Daniel in Beijing were friendly and very knowledgable. A+++

We write to tell you what an excellent guide Robert was to us. Of the guides that we had while in China and in India, he was easily the best. He interested in us, he talked to us frequently, he knew plenty of historical information. He knew when to let us take our take and when to move us along. He made sure that all of our needs were taken care of and offered exceptional customer service. We would recommend him wholeheartedly to any person looking for a great tour guide in Beijing.

We had a very good experience over the three days. We got to see all of the sites and we found our guides to be very accommodating. We did not think that the driver who picked us up in Shanghai to the airport knew what he was doing, he took us on a long back route and simply left us at the airport terminal with little or no direction. Mr. Dong (Allan), in Xi'an was good and took us to all the sites, but he was distracted by his phone and seemingly disinterested. He also took us to a Terra Cotta factory were we felt very pressured to buy at. We bought a figure which we later saw at the airport for 1/5th of the price at the factory. In comparison, Robert (in Beijing) was an exceptional guide. He took great interest in us and was always eager to engage in conversation. He adjusted our schedule as necessary because of a delayed flight, but still made sure that we got to see everything that we wanted to see. He also asked us in advance weather we wanted to do any shopping and when we told him "no" he adjusted the tour so that we could spend more time in the sites that we wanted to see. We cannot recommend him highly enough to others who might take this tour.

We booked this tour with a pre arranged delayed pick up from a cruise ship. This tour included two different locations, the first part in Xian and the second in Beijing, both with different guides. This really is a tale of two halves. The second half of this tour was excellent in every way and was carried out by a professional guide which we found exceptional and covered all on the schedule. The first half of the tour was the let down and was left very wanting in time given to us. Our main purpose of this visit was to the terracotta army which we arrived into the exhibition at 08.30 and we departed the site at 09.30 to allow time to go to the airport as an flight was pre-arranged. The overall tour schedule was to be delivered over 3 days/2 nights, however 1/2 day was lost at the beginning due to a late start, which they new and agreed to deliver the original tour, Overall a very good package but not enough time given to the first half of the tour, therefore affecting the value for money issue.
