“China and Tibet in 3 weeks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

This is really the way to do China and Tibet. A personalized itinerary, being met at each airport by a driver and a guide, the flexibility to change things on the fly. Carol arranged a great trip for us. All the guides spoke English well. A big thumbs up to Jimi in Tibet who really went out of his way to please us.

“China Highlights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015

We visited China in March 2015. We had an awesome time. Everything was perfectly arranged by Delia, from visiting the Great Wall, Forbidden city, Terra cotta warriors, Li river cruise, Terraced Rice Fields & Shanghai. We certainly recommend China Highlights, the guides are knowledgeable, friendly and go the extra mile if needed. The guide in Guilin, Lilly, was for us exceptional! We certainly recommend her for anyone visiting Guilin. Thank you China Highlights for making our trip unforgettable! :-)

Hi there
Great to know that you had an awesome time in China. You definitely went to the major cities and sites. We're pleased that one of your stops was here in Guilin where you not only cruised along the LiRiver, but also visited the LongJi Terraced Rice fields where the Zhuang and Yao Minority people are. A rich and colourful insight into the ethnic minority area.
If you come again, do drop Lily a note and she would be more than happy to help you plan again and explore other parts of China.
Kind Regards

“Wonderful Tour Company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015

We had booked a 4 day SHANGHAI and BEIJING tour with China Highlights and I cannot rate them highly enough. They were fantastic. Lily was great before we travelled in orgnising the tours and she deserves the kudos.
Our guide in Shanghai (Ryan) was terrific. He actually spoke with a bit of an Aussie accent, very funny. He was knowledgable, funny, told jokes and kept us informed. We sawThe Bund and there he took us to a building where HSBC Bank was started. A beautiful building. He loves architecture.
The name The Bund comes actually from India. We went to the Shanhai Museum, a nice garden, a temple and then a beautiful lunch. We also went to what Ryan called "The Fake Markets" and it was fake, not a nice market at all. The next day we went to Suzhou which is the Venice of China. We had to drive for about 1.1/2 hours but it was worth it. first the Humble Administrator Gardens which were absolutely splendid. We went for a gondola ride which were wooden boats and ours was pushed forward by a lady. She was funny and sang for us. Wonderful. After another fab lunch we ent to an embroidery factory and after that a silk factory which was fantastic. In the evening Ryan had organised an outing to an Acrobat show, another great idea, we loved it.

And then 2 days later we went to Beijing to see The Great Wall. It was a long drive and our guide was Garry (although he pronounced it s Jerry), another lovely young man. He knew his stuff and gave us great information. When we arrived at the Wall we were gobsmacked. Even though we had seen the Wall on.pictures and TV, nothing prepares you for the awe inspiring site. We went up in the cable car and walked in the Wall. What an experience. Afterwards we visited the Summer Palace and then we went to another show, this time a Kung Fu show. Also great. Peking Duck for dinner and then we were off to the Marriott Hotel by the City Wall, a fabulous hotel. Garry could actually stay in the hotel too as one couple did not come with us.
the next day we went to Tienamen Square, so many people, And then the Forbidden City, what a nice place. unfortunately we then had to return to our ship, but these 4 days were absolutely wonderful.

“Richard Lee: An Outstanding Guide in Guilin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

My wife and two girls (ages 10 and 13) just enjoyed an amazing four days in Guilin and surrounding area and we owe a debt of thanks to our guide, Richard Lee. Richard is a passionate, knowledgable, engaging and sincerely kind guide, with keen interest in local culture, environment and history. His stories, observations, and lessons made the trip feel like a combination of vacation and cultural exchange, tailor made for my family. We recommend Richard to anyone who wants to experience China in a way that is both easy and adventurous at the same time. Xie xie Richard!!

“Fantastic few days in Guilin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015

The China Highlights Tour Company ( Whitney Liao) arranged a fantastic tour in China for Nelshia and I during April 2015. Everything worked out 100% and we shall definately recommend China Highlights as the tour operator of choice when visiting China. In Guilin our tour guide Frank really made our visit worth while and we spent two very interesting days with him. He was fluent in English and very helpful and informative. We were also priveleged to have dinner with Whitney Liao, as she is also based in Guilin, which we appreciate very much. Chris Visser - South Africa
