We booked our Zhangjiajie (Avatar Mountains) tour with Jack from China Discovery (managed through WeChat and email) and it was organized perfectly. First of all, very flexible given we had to rebook several times as other destinations were affected by Covid. Also very responsive service with itinerary and quotes sent timely. We were also able to book an extra night in the hotel given this suited our train times better.

As for the tour as such, we were taken care of start to finish. Our amazing guide Lily picked us up at the train station and saw us through the Covid formalities (test upon arrival, filling out form, downloading local health code app etc.), checked us in to every hotel and picked us up every day on time with the driver in a private min van. Zhangjiajie is amazing to witness and a Unesco site, and the itinerary was a great mix of hiking, taking in panoramic views and learning more about local culture and history. After 3 days in the area exploring different mountains and scenic spots, also went to Fenghuang / Phoenix City, a beautiful ancient town and 3 hours away by car. Dinners / lunches were local Chinese fare and good as well, and Lily was super friendly and knowledgeable, taking really good care of us. Hassle free and can only recommend China Discovery.
