    Great day at Forbidden City
    Kevin was our tour guide and did an excellent job showing us around all day! He was very knowledgeable and had a positive and friendly attitude. He was happy to give us information on all the sites and answer any questions. He also helped us with checking into our hotel and showing us a great breakfast spot before the tour.

    Tracy is the best!
    I don't do tour groups but on rare occasion. I am not a fan of tour groups because they tend to be more expensive than they are worth, but I will glad say that the money I paid for the Travel China Guide in Xi'an was outstanding.

    A groups of 5 Americans were first picked up at the airport and brought to our hotel. Tracey talked to us about the history of Xi'an for most of the ride and it was fascinating. She told us so much wonderful information about all the Dynasties.

    I have been picked up by tours and then just had the guides be lumps. She was engaging, and friendly her English was strong and it was a great way to start Xi'an. The driver was safe and wasn't too fast or too slow.

    The next day we went to the Terracotta Warriors and Han Yang Ling Museum. The Terracotta Warriors is not to be missed, but having Tracey there made it so much better. She knows her history and presents it in a great way.

    She brought us to a great lunch spot where we got a tea service and More

    She brought us to a great lunch spot where we got a tea service and wonderful noodles and then to the Han Yang Ling Museum that most people miss.

    Its a great counter point to the Terracotta Warriors. The pits have a glass walkway over them. You get to see many artifacts still in place from after the ceiling collapsed, but its a very different perspective. The artifacts are samplers, there are tunnels not pits, but Tracy was so helpful in explaining the area, and the tunnels.

    Tracy and Travel Guide China has made me feel that not all tours are too much money. They have been great and can't wait to see them on Wednesday for the next day tour!

    I have spent alot of time singing the praises of Tracy and her skills, but Angela, a faceless person on WeChat has been great in all of her help as well. She shouldn't be overlooked, or Lexi who helped me with the initial planning and pricing! Less

    Weekend with my husband in Beijing
    We are so lucky to visit Beijing with our guide, Rocky. The 2 days were full with nice places and he told a lot of interesting stories about them. We got a little closer to know the Chinese history, in this way was much more better then only reading about them from the web or books. He helped us to choose restaurant to eat, made our staying in the big city more comfortable. An extra point: he took beautiful pictures with his camera of the places and us. This memories are much more precious than a bunch of selfie!

    Terracotta Soldiers - WOW!
    An amazing day at the Terracotta Soldiers Xi'an. As normal when we travel in China, we used China Travel Guide to book our tickets and arrange our tour. Everything went smoothly from hotel pick up to collecting our tickets. Our guide for the day was Lily. She was extremely knowledgeable on Chinese history and we learnt so much. Lily's English was impeccable and she delivered her information in a most eloquent manner. As a foreigner living in China during these sad, difficult times, do not be put off by travelling within the country. We were made welcome by the people of Xi'an and I thoroughly recommend this city for a destination. Thank you to China Travel and to Lily for a very special day.

    Review on a cancelled trip
    This review is based on my experience in interacting with Travel China Guide Tours and specifically the Travel Consultant, Emily Xin. We unfortunately had to cancel the tour scheduled during the upcoming summer vacation in July due to the ongoing cross border travel restrictions due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. However the professional service and responses received, starting from the initial exploratory emails back in January to the immediate refund of 100% of the advance payment upon the cancellation of the tour, exceeded expectations. Looking forward to rearranging this trip next year!

    I will go to China.
    If you read my title maybe you think "Why do you review if you did not go to China?"

    The answer is that I want to acknowledge the entire process of planning and canceling our trip due to the pandemic. I contacted Travel China Guide Tours on October maybe November 2019. I was lucky that my travel consultant was Lexi, a very professional, friendly and always ready to help young woman. All my questions and interests were answered within 24 hours. Incredible thing when we live on the other side of the globe. When our itinerary was excellent and we deposited 33% of the total cost, the Corona Virus emergency appeared.The company was at all times concerned about our trip and when we decided that we were unable to go due to this worldwide emergency, the tour was canceled and we were reimbursed with 100% of our deposit. Only a prestigious company is capable of serving its clients the way we were treated. I highly recommend Travel China Guide Tours and Lexi Yang their Travel Consultant. More

    Cancelled due to Coronavirus but positive experience, nonetheless.
    We had business that was bringing us to, of all places, Wuhan, so we decided to bring our 16 year old and tour Beijing and Shanghai as well.

    I had no idea where to begin to find a tour company we could trust but I happened across Travel China Guide. Their mini group tour sounded perfect. We asked our business contacts to check the company out and they said they were legitimate. Emily answered questions promptly, given the 12 hour time difference. She was excellent to work with and we got very excited as our trip drew near.

    Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic struck and we had to cancel our tour just a few weeks after wiring the entire balance due to China. To be honest, I wondered if we would ever see our refund, but Emily came through. Once again, her communication was excellent.

    We truly hope to make it to China at some point in the future and I will not hesitate to book a tour with China Tour Guide again.

    Thank you Guys
    We had a complete itinerary Plan for our vacation trip to China.

    Unexpectedly the COVID19 showed off and all airlines and hotels started to doubt and our Plans did become uncertain and risky.

    Your Company was the first one in attend our solicitude and make a full refund, we really appreciate your warmth words and your prompt refund.

    No doubt is left in our minds to choose again a serious Company like yours as our first-hand experiences to discover in our next year travel to China.

    Trip Cancellation.
    The Travel Guide China team were incredibly helpful when it came to giving me my refunds. I was scheduled to travel to China in March, and I used them to book not only tours, but domestic flights and trains within China. Their website is really awesome,very detailed, and a really great way to plan a trip to China.I felt safe making my payments to them. Anyway I had to cancel,they were very prompt with their responses,and they were honest about the challenges they were facing. Not once did I feel ignored or that I wouldn't get my refund. They did their best to ensure that my queries were taken care of,and I received all of my refunds. I will definitely be using them again.

    12 Day Private Tour - Beijing-Pingyao-Xi’an-Harbin-Shanghai
    We have just completed a 12 day private tour booked through Emily at Travel China Guide.

    From the very start Emily was always very responsive to my endless questions and changes so that we could get the experience that we wanted to have. Thanks Emily for your professional service!

    Our tour started with 2 days in Beijing where we visited the Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, Hutongs and the Great Wall at Mutianyu - with a beautiful sprinkling of snow. Yes it was cold but nothing a few layers of clothes didn’t fix and there were no crowds. Almost had the place to ourselves - it was fantastic to finally visit.

    We then traveled by high speed train, after our guide assisted us through the checking in process, onto Pingyao. What a beautiful place! It was like stepping back in history. We stayed at a gorgeous hotel - the Yide Hotel, we had a courtyard to ourselves. Everyone was so lovely.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this pretty place.

    Next we traveled to Xi’an and had the pleasure of visiting the Terra-cotta Warriors, City Wall and the Big Wild Goose pagoda. Another city full of ancient history and wonders.

    Following Xi’an we flew to Harbin and visited the exquisite Ice and Snow festival, Sun Island Snow sculptors, the Zhaolin Ice Lanterns as well as the amusement park on the Songhua river - a lot of laughs were had! We have waited a long time for an opportunity to visit the Ice and Snow festival and was in total awe of it! Could’ve spent longer here to fully take it all in.

    We then finished our tour with a day in Shanghai.

    Overall we had a wonderful time with very professional and helpful guides. They all ensured our every needs were met, checked us into our hotels, transport and other activities we wanted to go to.

    We will definitely be recommending Travel China Guide and visiting China in Winter! Thanks for a wonderful itinerary and experience! Less
