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.

Hi Jack

We really enjoyed our Yangtze Cruise on Victoria Anna.  The boat was really good – not too crowded and the rooms were clean and comfortable with nice big glass doors to see the views.  The included activities were fun, and we also enjoyed going ashore on our own when we could despite being told in the daily notes that we couldn’t!  We enjoyed meeting the other guests seated at our table, and the food was plentiful and pleasant.  We were lucky with the weather – although it was quite hot, it didn’t actually rain during our trip.  It was great being able to sit out on the covered deck in front of the Yangtze Club and watch the passage through the gorges with a nice breeze blowing to keep us cool.

We would definitely recommend a cruise on Victoria Anna to our friends and family.

Kind regards

Andrew and Linda Norton

Hi Wendy

Please see my feedback below.

  1. I have asked a lot of questions and made a few suggestions/changes on the itinerary. My travel consultant has responded to my queries in about 1-2 days time on average, which I think is considered quite fast.
  2. The overall arrangement is good.

Although I was quite surprised as the train ticket and Bhutan visa were given to my friend and I the day before arriving the destination, I appreciate the effort of the travel agents who had purposely came down to my hotel in order to pass us the train ticket and Bhutan visa. As there was a sudden closure in Tibet one month before the departure date, the travel consultant has been quite prompt to rearrange the tour for us and able to settle most of the arrangement within 1-2 weeks.

Hi Wendy, 

Thank you so much for your patience. We are now back and rested. 

I will be very happy to give you the feedback you have asked for. Please use the photos and comments on your website. 

1. We have had a great experience with the travel consultants from China discovery. We started off working with Olivia, who was always very patient with all my million queries. She was quick to revert to my mails and very helpful in giving my itinerary the shape I was looking for. When she went on leave, Wendy came on board to see us through the final leg of finalizing our tour and executing it. She managed to do a fabulous job with it. Wendy would revert to all my questions (and I had a lot of them) with speed, flexibility and clarity. Very impressive team of travel consultants. 

2. The tour was all that we had imagined it would be. Everything worked like clockwork. The guides were always where they were supposed to be and were all knowledgable with a good command over English. Special mention to Lucia in Xi'an who made us feel very comfortable and was an excellent guide. 

The vehicles used all throughout the tour were clean and very comfortable. The drivers were professional and drove carefully. 

The choice of restaurants for lunch were really good for the most part and the food was really tasty. We got to experience Chinese food from different parts of the country through these lunches. We had only one not so good experience, which was at the restaurant at the Bund in Shanghai. Though the location was really good, the restaurant was hot (AC didn't seem to work) and the food was average. 

Overall, the tour was great. And what really touched us was the thoughtfulness of the travel company.  My daughter's 12th birthday started with a beautiful bouquet of flowers given to her by the guide on behalf of the company. My son got a panda bear toy for his 6th birthday, which was such a lovely gesture. We really appreciated it and it will serve as a special reminder of our trip to China. 

3. There is not much that I can suggest to improve the service or the execution of the tour. It was near to perfect. 

I would like to complement the travel team at China Discovery for our memorable trip to China. We will cherish all our days spent there for the rest of our lives. And we will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family. 

And next time we come to China, we will be using your services again. Thank you once again. 

Am attaching some pics from our holiday.

Hello June,

I'm well thank you.

The tour was amazing! We're very thankful for everything you organized!

You are very responsive and patient with E-mails! It was comforting to know that any questions I had would always be answered promptly.

The tour arrangements were wonderful with some really incredible sights. Having lunch organised between stops was also good to have a rest before the next activity.

China Discovery was a great and well organized company! I'm so glad we chose to travel through China discovery because without China Discovery we would not have been able to have the amazing experience we had.

Hi, June

This is a great tour and photos will be sent later, but you may use photos and text on your websites.

I am impressed by quality of the service from different angles of so complicated trip which I had: big number of the flights and transportation logistics were done just perfect. Even cancelled two flights problem was solved almost invisible for me and didn't change our journey.

Everything met our requirements: hotels, transportation, food and content of our excursions. All tour guides were very professional, knowledgeable about history, tour sites and very open and friendly. Also, tour guides recommendations about evening shows, restaurants and free time always was done very good. We didn't regret about any show which we had a chance to see.

You are professionals and it is easy to recognize that you and your team are doing a job which everyone loves.

Thank you so much! You are doing so nice job so far!  You opened for us China! It's so great to find out all achievements which country got, but we are impressed by people who look forwarded for each new day, by great history, sites and nature.

Dear Bertina

Nice to hear from you.

Yes we are back to our home towns and as soon as we got back , we got busy with business and all regular activities of life !

The Tibet tour was a memorable lifetime experience and we would like to thank you and Tibet Discovery for the excellent tour management from start to end.

Itinerary was great. The services at the Hotels were fine .

We would like to complement the tour guides Mr. Purbu, Mr. Nima for their efficiency, involvement and dedication. Special complements for to Mr Bhuchung who drove us for a week in Tibet.
