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 got home 4 days ago, and I am still on such a high, this holiday in China was magnificent!
A big, big thank you to you for organizing such a wonderful trip. We experienced a little bit of everything, the old and the new, the lovely antique villages near Huangshan City, magnificent historical treasures like the Terracotta Warriors and the Great Wall, the futuristic Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, the high speed train to Xian. The beautiful scenery at Huangshan Mountain, it was fairly cold - just the right weather to climb all those steps! I loved the vibrant Muslim area in Xian, and Wuzhen was wonderful - I got the indigo dyed fabric that I was looking for.
The boat cruise by Century Sun on the Yangtze River was so nice, the gorges are magnificent, and we stayed up after midnight to watch the ship going through the locks. The personnel on the ship are very efficient, the cabin was comfortable and the shore excursions were very interesting. Guilin - just like the pictures you see - amazingly beautiful.
The guides are unbelievably good, always on time, always friendly and helpful, speaking really good English. It amazed me how good their planning was, every day they took us to so many different places, and always managed to get us to the station/airport on time - even did the check-in too! They made it so easy for us. The drivers were equally good, patiently driving in the hectic traffic, never did we feel that a driver was taking risks.
I am already recommending you and your company to friends who are asking about our trip. You are very welcome to give my email address to other customers.
We would love to visit China again, I know we have seen only a small part of China. And I shall definitely contact you straight away to organize it all. Xie xie ni!

I just got up after a short slip after the long way back home.
I am still very tired and sick, but i am sure in a few days everthing will be o.k.
Our trip to China was great and your company organisation and specially you were beyond all our expectations!
Let me recover and rest some days, and I will send you my detailed opinion on the great time you gave us.
Thanks a lot and I will keep in touch.
Hello Mr. Wang,
really happy about our tour, we have to tell you that it had been one of the
most enjoyable time of our lifes.
The train ,hotel and cruise were excellent better than we could have hoped.
Your countrymen were of great assistance when we needed help.
All in all it was a fantastic experience and we look forward to revisiting China in the future and I would really recommend the Sofitel Chengdu for any Western clients you have in the future.
We had a very nice trip to China. It was a pleasure to meet you. Thank you again for the lovely gifts and all your organisation in making our experience a success.
We are back in KL, not for long, as we go back home to Australia in a weeks time.
We had a very enjoyable time in China, it actually took us by surprise as we were a little sceptical initially, not knowing how the whole trip will pan out. This is our first time to travel independently into China ---and we must commend on how well it all was put together. We are very happy with the service provided. We are now planing to go back to China again nxt year and hopefully you'll be able to recommend some destination, with places of interest, and good food.
All goes well and I am back home and over the jet lag.
Regarding my China trip arranged through China Discovery, from start to finish, I was pleased with the entire experience.
Thank you Isabel for making the arrangements and putting the pieces in place to make my trip a success. Your prompt responses to my inquires/requests and suggestions made the planning phase smooth. Expediting the confirmation letter was especially important in getting a visa on time.
Upon arrival, I was met by the guide (Carina) and the Driver at the airport who remained with me for the duration of the trip. While I realize that they were working, I am not used to such individualized attention and am appreciative of the time that they spent away from their homes and families to ensure that my time in Guilin~Yangshuo was carefree and memorable. Please thank them for me.
The destinations were completely in line with my expectations. I especially enjoyed visiting the rice terraces in Longsheng and the memorable trip down the Li river. Though the Pearl Museum was impressive (I learned a lot), it was not to my taste. The additional suggested excursions (Xijiangyuan Scenic Area and Two Rivers and Four Lakes Night Cruise) though, were well chosen and enjoyed very much by me. Weather prevented other optional activities (in Yangshuo) from taking place.
The guide and driver were punctual and professional. My interaction with guide Carina was easy-going and enjoyable. She exhibits a genuine/natural and pleasant personality and was easy to talk to. She was knowledgeable about the area's geography and especially the people. She took care of every detail of my trip (without worry on my part). In fact, when the forecast or the actual weather was bad, Carina began to plan for contingencies. The focus and attention to detail allowed me to relax knowing that she had everything under control. When weather required adjustment of plans, she communicated options and recommended reasonable alternatives based on safety. This was important since there were thunderstorms with lightening in the area and I love to hike. After consultation, the final decision was made & documented, we proceeded to explore the area.
Should my travels take me back to the Guilin ~ Yangshuo area (strong possibility with my family in the near future with the expectation of a deep discount from China Discovery :)), I would definitely request Carina as a guide again.
The lodgings and food (sometimes a bit too much for one person) were in line with my expectations.
Overall, the trip was a success due to good planning and excellent execution by the guide and driver. I would definitely recommend this combination to friends.
Life is what you make it. Enjoy and be good to everyone you meet.
We had a very good tour. We enjoyed it lot and could see many places as per the itinerary prepare by you.
All tour guides appointed by you for various places were very prompt, punctual, knowledgeable, caring and communicative. They all were prompt in receiving us from railway station or airport, transporting us by bus to the hotel, conducting tours, arranging for lunch, dinner, cultural shows and reaching us to the airport or railway station for our next destination. The guides were well trained. As they were from respective local areas we could gather valued information about history, geographical details, social activities etc. of the area visited by us and we could understand properly about those areas during our visit. The bus arrangement was very good and efficient and as the guides were communicating with us in English we have no difficulty to communication with the local people. All our participants are very happy for the services given by you.
