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.

Dear Isabel,

A wonderful trip amongst wonderful people and a lovely country.

I real eye opener. New Zealanders could learn so much in terms of respect and pride from your countrymen and women. I think we New Zealanders have a long way to go toward civilization.

Your guides were excellent. I would not like to single anyone out but Jenny was exceptional. I fell in love with girl at Zhengzhou (Vicky Gee) who worked on reception at the Hotel. Vicky had the most radiant and beautiful smile I have ever seen in my life. I will never forget her. The sites we visited were all excellent but the road trip from Zhangjiajie to Jishou was also a stand out feature. The accommodation in Jishou was excellent. Although we primarily came to see Engineering and construction which were mind blowing, to me the most outstanding feature were the people.

Everything ran like clockwork.

When I come back I want to spend most of the time in the countryside and mountains. I would not be concerned about having 5, 4  or even 2 star accommodation. To me the countryside is what a land is all about. I am not a city fan. I have not downloaded any pictures as yet but will sort some out for you. In Xian Bruce picked us up in a minivan. This was not suitable for the long day out to the Terracotta Warriors and then the drive to the Zhongnanshan Tunnel as the windows were very low and we could not see out of them. Bruce remedied this and provided a 22 seater which along with the rest of the transport was very good.

Thank you so much for organising this trip and your support.

Kindest regards

Hello Mr Wang,

How are you? We are really happy about our trip to China, as happy as we told many friends and one of them would like to go to Discovery China, we told him that you give really good prices and packages, I don’t know for how long is he going but can I give him your e-mail? He is my cousin :)

Greetings from Mexico, Rolando.

Hi Mr Wang,

Thank you so much for that. We had a great day today. Saw the terracotta warriors and enjoyed it very much as well as having a nice walk on the Xian city wall. Appreciate all your help very much.

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,
