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 had a good time in Kunming and Chongqing. The guides and drivers were very good. By the time I contacted you, it was just before the trip and one area was not covered regarding Chongqing but all went well no matter what. The guides were able to accommodate us all the way. We took probably 1,000 pictures but have not loaded them yet and cannot do so now as all we have is an IPad, and we used a camera for almost everything.
I do not have many immediate suggestions and we would be happy to recommend your services to anyone else. We found a restaurant on Green Lake in Kunming which was superior to the one recommended by your company. We showed Flavie, our guide and she should be able to inform you. Again regarding food, when we went to lunch, the quantity of food was usually 2X what we could have eaten. For a large group, there is no problem, I am sure but for 2 or 3 people, I suggest, the guides ask what and how much people would prefer. We personally would like to eat with the guides as that is a good time to get to know them better. As so few people, even in the hotels, speak reasonably good English, a guide is essential though certainly one could travel to the sights by oneself, it would be challenging so services like yours are needed most of the time.
You may use my comments as you wish. Ask me in a month and we should have photos uploaded when we are home to send you. Flavie took several of us in various places which she may be willing to share as well.
Thank you so much for arranging this .
Shannon is incredible and intelligent! It
was a very good road trip away. I was also wondering which more cultural tours
you have available ? I would like to experience something more traditional as
being in the city is far from the more cultural areas. I was having a look at
Dali etc. What are more rural or cultural experiences here for Sichuan province?
We have just returned from our in China, thank you for making this a memorable and amazing trip! Ms Wing was wonderful at assisting us and our tour guides especially Kennedy in Guilin was awesome! I will recommend this company to anyone and rate you 5 star! Thank you again for a wonderful holiday!
Back home with great memories of the China tour! Here are some photos you may use if you wish also my comments.
All of the arrangements China Discovery were excellent, drivers were courteous and safe drivers, vehicles were clean and well maintained! The guides were well informed in each area, no problem with their English, they were punctual for meeting at the airports or pick ups at hotels each day. Hotels were all excellent(4*) and breakfast choices were very good and varied between western/eastern choices! Locations of hotels made it easy to go out in evening on own. Lunch each day were also very good as went to local places each guide suggested and able to try local specialties. Special mention for the lunch in Yichang "Blue Island" awesome private dining room and excellent lunch, the best carp dish I have ever had!
The travel consultant answered any questions and worked with my schedule and interests to make this a great trip; 13 days from Shanghi, Yangtze River cruise, Xian and the Terracotta soldiers then ending in Beijing.
Will definitely use China Discovery again and highly recommend them to friends and family.
Thank-you to your entire team.

We have really enjoyed the tour, everything was satisfactory. The guides were very competent. The train trip to Guilin was fine, little difference compared to 1st class.

Tom and I are home safely after a wonderful trip to China, although I got sick after leaving Xi'an. You did a great job planning the itinerary and making sure the guides arranged gluten free meals. The guides worked very hard to explain my allergy to chefs and I really enjoyed delicious food. I have specific feedback for you to help you in the future.
Beijing - We were sorry that Albert was sick but happy that he was considerate and did not want to infect us. And Marjorie was an excellent guide. She was friendly and had a lot of good information that she shared. We are glad that we chose the optional dance show. It was wonderful.
Xi'an - We loved the high speed train! The Sofitel was the best hotel we stayed at. Waldener was a good tour guide who had a lot of good information. Guilin - We did not think the Sheraton deserved to be a 5 star hotel. We enjoyed the cruise on the River Li to Yangshuo. Smiley was our favorite guide. She was warm and friendly with a lot of local knowledge. And she was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed her. This area of China was very different from the big cities and was great to experience. The ethnic minority show on the river was breathtaking - we loved it.
Chengdu - Seeing the pandas was such a joy! It was the highlight of our trip.
Shanghai - This was a very interesting city. We had a lot of interesting experiences. Vivian was very sweet and a good tour guide. I am glad we finished out trip with her and not Nancy. It left us with a good feeling. I was pretty sick in Shanghai but still enjoyed it.
All in all it was a very nice trip and I have already recommended China Discovery to friends who want to go to China. We appreciated all your hard work in making great arrangements. Thank you.
We are having a wonderful time in China this far, and very much enjoyed our stay in Beijing. Our tour guide Andie was also outstanding! Please let her know as well, how grateful we are.
I just wanted to thank you again for all the arrangements.
