Still deciding if a China Discovery is for you? Many of our travellers have experienced a lifetime changing trip and now more than happy to share their stories with you. Check out their memorable travel trip reviews and experiences in China.
We have successfully arrived back home.
I have to express my best gratitude for the excellently organized tour and full support that was provided to us from you company.
Everything was perfect, all things we were expected to get have been obtained.
We are completely satisfied with all arrangements, services and transportation from your company. All tour guides were excellent, and finally our impression of tour to China - as a whole - is very good.
I will post my review at Trip_Advisor site in a few days.
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!
Hope next time if we or our friends have an intension to visit China we'll do it only with Chengdu Bamboo International Tours!
Thank you for your email. We have returned home after several more days break in Shanghai with our friends.
We had a great holiday in China and were surprised by how much building and road construction projects there were everywhere we went in China.
We were also amazed by how big the cities were (coming from a town with a population of approximately 800 people!).
Mostly everything we saw had a wow factor attached. We especially enjoyed the Great Wall and the pandas as well as Jiuzhaigou National Park.
Our guides were good with Eric Lu in Beijing being the best we had – he was excellent in his role and we can highly recommend him to other western visitors. He had so much knowledge of Beijing and China particularly its ancient and modern political history and he looked after us so well. Evelyn in Guilin was also a terrific guide. Both these guides had a great sense of humor which made our brief stay with them all the more enjoyable.
Our only struggles were with language and meal choices on our trip to Chengdu... Most hotels were comfortable and reasonably equipped. Difficult to order a meal sometimes with the language difficulty.
The van we had for the second part of our holiday (with our friends Ian and Lorraine) we found quite uncomfortable with not enough leg room – all of us are reasonably tall. However the driver was excellent and this is no reflection on him.
We did struggle also a bit with the tipping. Coming from a country where tipping is not the normal practice we thought the recommended daily amount was a little high.
Apart from that we have taken lots of lovely photos and have brought home some terrific memories. Congratulations on a well organised tour.

Thank you for your email! Was great to hear from you and we are so thankful we got to meet you in Chengdu!
We had such an amazing experience in China. The beauty of your country and the service you provide is absolutely incredible. Every day, every minute was our favorite!!
We have been busy with our family since we returned and we are trying to get rested!! I will definitely complete any survey and I will go online to rave about you, our guides, the sights and China Discovery!
'Thank you' is not adequate, but, thank you!
Below are photos of the absolute highlights of our trip! More photos will follow!
Hi Wonder Wang,
We arrived home safely.Thank you very much for your grate help during our stay there,trips were well organised and convey our kinds regards to tour guides.I will recommend you for my friends, if they want to visit CHINA.
Thank you again
How are you?
Remember us? Apologies for not replying sooner.
We had a wonderful tour & have now settled back home.
After our China tour we traveled to Hong Kong & returned via Vietnam.
In response to your questions:-
As our consultant, you were able to answer our requirements with patience & with speed.
All tour guides were patient with us & very knowledgeable in their area.
Tashi in Lhasa was particularly informative & a terrific guide for us.
We already have some friends asking how we organised our tour & will definitely refer them to you.
Some extra comments...
We had a flight from Lhasa to Xian which had 1 stopover. We think most tourists want direct flights & flights that arrive at the destination at a reasonable hour for check in & dinner at the new hotel.
We had been given a late flight Shanghai to Guilin which was also delayed by 2 hours that made arrival about 8.30 - 9pm. at the hotel. It is also making a late night for the guide who was there to collect us at the airport.
In this case for Guilin, our flight departure to Hong Kong was also delayed by about 5 hours. Therefore we did not see Guilin from the aircraft flying in or out. We arrived at our HK hotel at 1am. Next morning. Not your fault but just to emphasize that it is best to plan earlier flights if possible just in case.
Anyway, we had some marvelous experiences & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Sometimes difficult to make contact outside of China without the Google internet. It may be best to give well in advance warning for tourists to arrange an alternative email address.
Thank you so much for your organizing. We could not have done it without you.
All the best.
Kevin & Jannette
Thank you very much for everything. The tour was amazing. I will recommend you to all my friends.
Here is the evaluation:
1. Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?
The travel consultant always replied promptly to all my questions, offering lots of details.
2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?
The arrangements for the tours were excellent. I encountered no problems of any kind during the tours. The organizers paid attention to every detail, so my wife and I could enjoy the sightseeing without any headache.
3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?
I will certainly recommend you to everyone. Your professionalism truly deserves it.
4. Your general opinion on us?
You are a very detail-oriented team of professional workers dedicated to what you do best.
5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?
Given the high degree of professionalism that you have displayed, I truly believe that there is nothing that could be improved at this time. Congratulations!
6. Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail?
You can use my comments, but please don't publish my e-mail. Thank you once again for everything!
Xi'An sights were great. Seeing the Terracotta warriors was another big item from our bucket list. Just a note, guide was good but his or her attitude needs improvement!
Guilin / Yangshuo were very good as well even though we were unfortunate to have a rainy day during the river cruise. Guide Jennifer / Menjia was outstanding same as Ivory in Beijing. Jenifer is very knowledgeable and she went out of her way to meet our demands. Thank you.
Thanks for names and contacts for Kunming and Lijiang.
Sorry for such a late reply, but I did want to let you know that the trip went very well.
It was very interesting and all flowed pretty smoothly.
For me the highlights were the Great Wall, the Terracotta warriors, Lhasa, and Chengdu. All of which were so interesting, I think Susan has already mentioned we didn't enjoy Guilin and the cruise so much and perhaps a shorter time in that area may have been better.
I would particularly like to mention the guide in Chengdu, Eben and the guide in Lhasa, Jamien (not sure of spelling) who were both delightful and made our stays in those areas really good.
Hope these comments are helpful.
