Great 14 day China trip including Tibet with TCG
I can highly recommend TCG. The trip was exactly as advertised and certainly met or expectations. I booked the trip online and our consultant Wendy was very helpful. All of our guides were very knowledgeable and spoke English well. The cost was reasonable and we did not encounter any unexpected fees.
Book ticket on line and be worry-free
It was easy to book on line. I booked 5 seats in the fast train from beijing to shanghai.
No problem in getting the ticket. Ticket was lying at the counter of the hotel where we checked in.
They made the process of booking trains in China painless
Travel China Guide booked all our Chinese trains for us over a holiday period when it's almost impossible to get trains. They were excellent (and even apologised that they had only managed to get us seats in adjacent rows on one particular train that was bursting to the seams). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Great experience in China with TCG
Our 10 days trip to Hangzhou-shanghai-suzhou was nicely organized by TCG. I would like to give a big clap to my travel consultant Emily as she dealed quickly and nicely to my various requests and enquiries. Our travel guides and drivers are also very polite and helpful during the trip. Only one small suggestion to the travellers or TCG perhaps is to have travellers or guides to contact each other before the trip to confirm on the exact meetup point in train station, as travellers could get lost in big station.
Great Trip - Excellent Guide
Had a brilliant day out with Travel China Guide Tours in Xian.
Guide was friendly, great knowledge and funny.
I highly recommend this company. Would definitely use again Exceeded my expectations
Perfect tour to see the best of China
They were amazing, a truly memorable trip all went to plan with no additional costs. My 8 day China trip was very organised with no problems, we were kept busy sight seeing every day, we stayed in the best hotels, ate the best Chinese food our guide Candy was amazing and very helpful and went beyond her job. Thoroughly recommend Travel China for all your travel. Would love to do another tour with them.
Exceptional trip run by exceptional people
We booked a small group tour from Beijing to Xian then Chengdu to Shanghai, and Travel China Guide Tours also arranged extra flights for us to go on to Guangzhou afterwards by ourselves. Everything about the trip was professional and beautifully organised, from our first enquiries by email to the trip itself. We travelled by internal planes and train. The guides in each city were great, the hotels were lovely and all of the meals that were part of the package were exquisite and plentiful and in wonderful restaurants (unlike other trips that friends of ours have done through companies based in the UK). A fantastic insight into Chinese culture. We cannot recommend this company highly enough and would love to travel with them again to other areas of China. It far exceeded our expectations.
Would go again
Unit two weeks in China in different cities with different guides. Think they did amazing job and I would go again with them again in the country.
Beijing Made Easy
When we travel we prefer to do our own thing, but with a later night arrival and wanting to see the big 3 in an effective manner we booked with TCG a pick up from the airport and a small group tour to Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and The Great Wall.
We could not have been happy with doing so. We were meet and well looked after at 11.30 at night and swiftly delivered to our accommodation while at the same time getting some help titbits about life in Beijing.
Our small group tour was just that 5 people plus our very knowledgeable and proud Beijinger guide who not only explained the history and the significance of the areas we were there to see but also gave us some really interesting insights into life in Beijing. This made the tour so much more personal.
I would highly recommend TCG.
Memories of China
Approx 11 days tour including Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Shanghai and Yangtze River cruise. Enjoyed every experience which was very well organised and professionally carried by all our guides.
two incredible winning guides-chengdu and Beijing
we spent five incredible days in each city with the most fabulous guides. i thought the one in Beijing was outstanding and the best ever but the one in Chengdu was even better. when i realized they offered the same service in Bangkok i quickly book them again.
Travel China Guide, great experience
We used the services of TCG twice. One time in 2004 to vist China. And again in 2018 to visit Vietnam. It is a very relliable company. The guides, drivers, hotels, airplanes and visits were excellent. You can choose their package or build your own, which we did. Great service. Especially with Wendy Lee. I will do business again with TCG in the future. Maybe to visit Myanmar.
Travel China Guide Tours are Excellent
My wife and I have used Travel China Guide Tours for several trips in Southeast Asia. Our first experience with them was in Chengdu, where we were able to hold juvenile pandas and go to a English Language bookstore. Our guide was very caring and responsive to our needs. Next we traveled to Xian and our guide made the movement through the crowds much easier by having us move to the dig sites in an opposite order. In addition we were able to go to a home and make and eat Jiaozi and have a wonderful culture experience while sharing a meal with several other travelers and our hostess. Next we booked a tour of Shanghai and had a great experience, The tour guide had to do some leg work in order to include the Propaganda Museum that I wanted my wife to see but they made it work out. Finally, we booked a trip to Thailand over a Christmas holiday. Not only did they book our tours but they made arrangements for flights and hotels so all we had to worry about was packing. This was a great trip, we visited Chang Mai, Chang Rai and Bangkok. The tour company was very helpful in Bangkok when my wife injured her ankle and we were unable to complete the tour. The company refunded part of our money, got her ankle check by the medical staff at the hotel and arranged for wheelchair service on our flight home. I have been nothing but happy with the professionalism, flexibility and caring of the staff at Travel China Guide.
Well organized, friendly and well informed AND flexible
We had a great experience with Travel China Guide when we visited Beijing and surroundings, during an extended trip to see our son who was studying in Shanghai. In addition to a very pleasant experience during the trip, with a very fun and well informed driver and guide, we also were so impressed by the pre-trip support, clarity of information and genuine effort to understand what we were seeking from our travels. I recommend this organization without reservations and will use them again in the future.
Very professional multi-location tour
My three-person family booked a tour from the US, landing in Beijing, where we were met by a knowledgeable and competent tour guide. Maggie had a van waiting for us, which took us to our hotel - a nice Sheraton. Our multinational group assembled the next morning and Maggie was wonderful about navigating us through Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City. All entry tickets magically appeared. 75% of our meals were provided on the tour, including a lunch at a private house in Beijing. Maggie was magnificent, both in terms of professionalism and competence, but also in terms of being able to nimbly handle a group of 10 that all wanted to go in different directions. Two days later, we were whisked to the airport by the usual van, and Maggie was able to expedite our check in and baggage. After a short flight, we checked in to our hotel in Xian, which had the most wonderful breakfasts. The next morning, as usual, we were met by our guide, Susan, who took us to see the terracotta warriors - truly spectacular. Thereafter, be sure to take the bicycle tour on top of the wall that surrounds Xian. The usual van took us around the city, and then dropped us at the airport the next day. Susan got us all checked in and baggage handled. We took another short flight to Chongqing, and had scorching hot pot before boarding our cruise ship for a 3-day adventure on the Yangtse. Don't miss the evening departure from Chongqing on the deck - see this splendid city light up at night as you depart. Although the boat had seen some age, it was perfectly adequate, and the food was better than expected. We took small sampans up estuaries of the Yangtse, and made a few pagoda stops, before heading to the Three River Gorges. This cruise was the highlight of our trip. We disembarked in Yichang, and our wonderful guide Chuckie customized a day in his city, that included a visit to a tea market, and a special sitting with a tea doctor. We learned quite a bit about tea. Chuckie deposited us at the airport, and we flew to Shanghai. What a magnificent city! Be sure to take the one hour river cruise that gives you a full view of the city. Caveat: there are some shopping stops on the tour, at a jade factory, a pearl factory and a terracotta factory. We were skeptical, but ended up doing our best shopping on these stops, and the prices and quality were better than in the markets. Our whole trip was seamless, from booking (thank you Abbey), to questions, payment and departure. My only advice is to carefully research the visa process - it's a bear, but nothing Travel China Guide can do about that. This was not a Ritz-Carlton tour, nor was it Motel 6 - it was a Sheraton tour, right in the middle. I would highly recommend Travel China Guide.
We had a 16 day guided tour of China in 2014. I was somewhat worried booking a trip through the internet. It turned out to be a great one. Our agent was Abbey and we actually met her in Xian. This year we went on a semiprivate tour to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Again, we were very impressed by the prompt replies to all our questions, requests by Abbey. All the details of our trip were organized like clockwork. I believe we wouldn't have seen half of what we did without the help of the company. The guides were excellent on both professional and personal level. The hotels, the flights were all well worth the expense. I checked out other guided tours as well. This was the most reasonable. Reading it you might think that it is too good to be true. We extended our China trip with a day without a guide and traveled to another city (Suzhou). That turned out to be the worst experience. Many people don't speak English. During this year' tour we would have had a harder time in certain parts of Vietnam too.
The best tour that anyone can rely on
Our China tour guides made us feel relaxed and special for all 9 days. From the moment one makes an enquiry to the end of the tour, one is at absolute good hands. Very well organised and disciplined. The variety offered in the tour was the best offering. Well done.
Professional, customer-focussed travel agency.
This is an extremely professional, customer-focussed tour company. From the initial enquiry, to booking, and then travelling with them we could not have been more delighted. The tour guides were very personable and knowledgeable (particularly Sara, our first guide in Beijing).
We booked a 16 day small group tour, which was just 5 people and we have all become and remained firm friends (the Canadian couple recently visited us in Australia).
We are very impressed with China itself - clean, modern and scenic. They have gone to great trouble to preserve and celebrate their heritage and every local we met showed great pride in their homeland.
We would highly recommend Travel China Guide, they made a quite hectic schedule very manageable by taking care of all arrangements, including site entries and airline check-ins, allowing us to really enjoy the experience in a relaxed manner. Our accommodation in every city was very good, all the hotels were 4 or 5 star and the location of each was very convenient.
I would highly recommend Travel China Guide
This is the second time that we used Travel China Guide to visit China, and we could not be more pleased! This agency has very easy to work with; their agents have always been prompt and responsive to any of our questions regarding our arrangements and itineraries. We were provided with a guide who was friendly, knowledgeable, understanding of our needs, and pleasantly flexible when we made some very last minute changes to our itinerary. We were provided with contact information for twenty four hour support, which, thanks to Travel China Guide’s careful planning and attention to detail, we never had to use. I would highly recommend this agency for your travel plans to China!
Great Wall walking tour with a Great team
I used Travel Guide China tours for a walking tour on the Great Wall, the service was fantastic, emails were replied to promptly, everything they said they would do was done, and the walk itself was fantastic. The guide was so informative and answered every single question with great information, really made the trip enjoyable and very much worthwhile. Cannot fault them and I would use them again for sure next time I visit China.
