What Our Travelers Say

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.

Hello, Ian,

We enjoyed a great tour of Mainland China and of Hong Kong. I thought you did an excellent job of making our tour arrangements and assigning tour guides. 

For me and my children, our trip highlights were climbing the Great Wall, cycling the ancient walls in Xi'an, sharing lunch with Angela and her family, visiting the Panda Research center, rafting on the Hongkou River, cycling through the Yangshuo villages, visiting the Urban Planning Museum in Shanghai and walking on the Bund.

I was very pleased with the quality of guides and drivers you selected. The children adored Mr. Jong (Beijing driver). He has a very warm and funny personality, and he was so accommodating, taking us to and from the Kung Fu Theater and out to the Olympic Village at night. Bruce in Xian is a truly exceptional guide. If you can give me the names of the owners of China Discovery, I would like to write them a letter regarding Bruce. Penny in Chengdu really did a great job for us at the Panda Research Center and also the rafting trip. My youngest Natalie just loved Candace in Guilin.  At the Guilin airport Natalie looked sadly at me and said, "Mom, I'm really going to miss Candace." Since she's been home, Natalie has mentioned Candace several times . . . .she made a tremendous impression on Natalie, and the rest of us enjoyed her very much, too.

Tim and Frank were very capable guides, too. Tim has peaked my interest in future travel to Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. Frank is very knowledgeable about Shanghai and accommodating. I appreciated that Candace was able to attend the Impressions show with my daughters and me.  Without her there to explain each of the seven impressions, we would not have understood the beauty unfolding before our eyes.

I have tasked my middle child Lauren (14) with putting together a Shutter fly book.  She's just settling into school, so it may be a week or two before she starts.  Once she has selected her favorites photos from among nearly 800 we took on the trip, I will ask her to pick out her top ten favorites from mainland China and send them to you.  We'll add a brief explanation to each photo.

Ian, we enjoyed a marvelous trip. Our travel went incredibly smoothly, and I thank you and all the guides and drivers for ensuring a smooth, safe, and hassle free trip.

I am sure to return to China, but I intend to wait for the rapid (bullet) train to reach more destinations. I am incredibly impressed with the train service from Beijing to Luoyang and to Xian.  I look forward to the day when I can travel to all my destinations via the rapid train. 

I have given your name and email address to several friends contemplating trips to China. I will continue to refer you when the opportunity presents.

Best wishes, Ian.

Hi Jack,

Our tour at Xiamen and Tulou villages was very nice, we really enjoyed our time there!

Our guide was really interesting, speaking very good English and had good knowledge on the Hakka villages. The driver was very nice also and the car very comfortable! My parents and I were really satisfied with your service.

I will recommend your agency in the future if people I know are interested in visiting Hakka villages!

Thank you again for this tour.

Hi Ian,

Everything has been very beautiful. We loved the travel.

Everything has been very positive for the five members of the group. Special positive points to Yoyo in Beijing and Waldner in Xian. Positive points also for the girl who attended us in Yichang upon our arrival from the Three Gorges Cruise. The three of them are excellent tour guides. Excellent.

Thanks a lot for your support and your follow up during the whole travel.

Thanks a lot. We will recommend your services to our friends.

Best regards,

Hi Laura,

Despite of my husband had said almost everything about our trip I'd like to give a feedback from a mother who was worried to take her kids to a country with a very different culture from ours.

The wonderful experience we had in China is mainly due to your care with our family. Starting with the excelent neighborhoods, the great hotels, the comfort vans, the great guides, the wonderful tours... You really did an awsome job!

Thank you very much to make this dream come true to our family!

Best regards,

Hi Laura,

We're very well!! The trip was outstanding!!! and YOU super outstanding!! Everything you planned worked very well.

I've forwarded your email to my wife because she wants give you a feedback too. I'd like just to highlight two points: The first one is praise the work of our guide Eben. He did an outstanding job! He knew very much about Chinese culture (something that we were expecting). He understood completely our needs in terms of sightseeings, restaurants, shoppings and everytime he was searching for things to meet our expectation. The second point is that Eben "raised the bar" for what we should expect about a tour guide. So based on it I'd like to share an opinion as an opportunity of improvement. When we arrive in Beijing our expectation was not so high, in fact we didn't knew for sure what expect in terms of accommodations, restaurants and sightseeings. So, everything that was happening without any problem was ok for us.

For sure, we'd like to come back to China, invite some friend and be in touch with you. You were so excellent in all steps of our trip.

Xie Xie Ni!!!
