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.
The tour arrangements all went very well and the guides were all helpful. I would recommend your service to friends.
The only suggestion I would make, and this is not a criticism, is that it would have been nice to do one of the legs of the journey by bullet train, rather than flying. Beijing to Xian for example.
Our tour guide in Beijing changed the itinerary on our last day so that we went to the Summer Palace in the morning. He said that we didn't have lunch on this day. It was only in the evening when we were in Xian that I realised that lunch should have been included on this day. However it was not a problem and we got something to eat at the airport.
It was an excellent trip although I would not recommend visiting China in August. School holidays for the Chinese and very hot. Because of Scott's work schedule in Shanghai it was the only time we could go.
All in all, an excellent trip
Hello, wish you well. Thanks for your concern. We were back just last night, and glad that we return yesterday, otherwise, we shall need take a train back to HKG instead of a flight as we are having the Typhone today this morning - just pass by 50 KM from HKG. Very strong wind with heavy rain and all flights are cancelled from 6 AM - 5 PM today.
Taking the opportunity, I would like to thank you for your kind arrangement with our Yangtze River Cruise booking. All is fine and we enjoyed very much for the whole cruise. Accommodation on V Sophia was comfortable, same as what we expected and the food is wonderful and we had nice meals that meet with our taste. The Captain is a nice man and we are glad to have the chance of greeting to him. All other crews on board perform their professional service that make us so comfortable and relax. It is a memorable river cruise.
Once again, thank you so much for everything you had done to organise our cruise.
All the best wishes.
I was ready to contact you and express our appreciation for your service and the way of diligent preparation of our trip.
We arrived to Beijing 30 minutes late because of bad weather. The Immigration department opens only 4 boots to process all foreign visitors so it took a while to get through.
Kevin and the driver were waiting for us and took us to the hotel. It was past midnight.
The hotel was beautiful, the location in the centre of the city tremendously convenient and the room and service provided by the hotel staff absolutely excellent.
Kevin was excellent tour guide. He was very professional yet very personal with warm and friendly approach. We could not have anybody better than him. He was sensitive to us and his knowledge of the history and places we were attending made the trip so special. As you are aware, we visited the Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City. It was a great experience for us to see such unique place of rich history of China in old days. We absolutely enjoyed the Summer Palace experience.
We enjoyed the train ride from Beijing to Xian. The fast speed was fascinating. Johnny was waiting for us and took us to the hotel. Also that hotel was excellent with service provided in high standard. The room was very comfortable and all personnel attending to us whether guest desk, or waitresses, Johnny as tour guide, the driver we excelling in their service. We appreciated the location of the hotel and convenience being in the centre of the city.
We enjoyed the tour to the terracotta warriors place. It is amazing place and reach in history.
It was a busy time of school holiday so there were many visitors.
I would make just one recommendation. The visitors could walk slowly close to the rail so everybody would have good view and opportunity to take photos. Many people just stood close to the rail barrier not moving and blocking the view for others.
Our journey to Shanghai by plane was delayed for bad weather. We arrived to the airport quite late.
Andy was waiting for us with patience and smile on his face.
He was fantastic tour guide and once again we were impressed by the standard of our accommodation and the location right in the Bund district.
Andy was attentive and sensitive, truly excelling in his service and making sure of our wellbeing.
We enjoyed the tours and experience of view from the top of the Shanghai business centre.
It is pity that we did not have extra time to go to the shopping precinct as the schedule was quite tight time wise.
We surely had fantastic time. I learned how to use chopsticks. We already propagated the tour and your company to many our friends and family.
All the cities we saw are vibrant, modern, very technologically advanced and friendly.
It was refreshing to see many groups of people spontaneously singing and dancing in the streets.
People appeared to be happy, courteous and patient.
You truly can be proud of your country and the achievement we saw.
Thank you for your great effort and team of people who made our visit to Chine very special.

Sending you a picture of Lindsay, our tour guide in Beijing. She was fantastic and we truly enjoyed her company.
We were definitely lucky to choose your travel agency for our initial visit to the mainland. We will definitely like to come back and maybe invite other family members. It was short but sweet!
Thank you once again, Leo and regards to everyone.
Thanks for sorting out the photos from the cookery session. They were great!
I am happy for you to use pictures and comments on your website.
Yes, very quick.
The tours were meticulously organised with a knowledgable guide who was great company on our travels.
China Discovery provides a full package service, which is excellent for the new traveller to China but also informative and useful to those who know China well. They cut through any bureaucratic or language difficulties and make full use of your precious holiday time.
Perhaps more discussion on what lies ahead – with options for those with young children.
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?
YES – (see above)

Thank you very much, it was an enjoyable experience! Thank you also for looking after the special request of my girlfriend, it was a very nice surprise :)
I will discuss with my father if we have any pictures we want to share (we are in general quite private concerning this), but we will make sure to mention your company's name when talking to friends about our trip.
You are welcome to publish any of my feed backs
1. I was very satisfied of my travel consultant, I received very fast and clear answers to all my questions -> excellent
2. The crew of the ship and guides were very kind people and helped us as much as they could, a member of the crew spoke French and made sure we did not miss anything -> excellent, should you have the opportunity to do so feel free to give à feed back to the crew
3. Yes I would recommand your company
99% of the people on the ship were chinese, most of them very friendly, it was a great opportunity for us.
Just one point, not so important for us, may dissapoint some people, the standard of the ship does not meet the 5 stars western standard.
I cannot send currently photos. If this is important, you can ask again in September.
Thanks for your E-Mail. We arrived back in Switzerland yesterday.
I was very happy with your support and can answer your questions as follows:
Yes absolutely. I was very satisfied with the service.
Both tour guides did an excellent job. Especially Johnny from Xian was great.
