I've used China Connection Tours three times and every time we have been 100% satisfied. The main reasons I chose to use CCT is that I could customize our tours to see what we wanted to see (not something on a bus with 50 other people, etc.), they would take us to the kinds of restaurants we wanted to go to (Western, Chinese, Italian, etc.), find the clean bathrooms for us, and their price was very affordable and worth every penny! It was so nice having someone else do all the talking and arranging in Chinese for us, while transporting us through the cities knowing where to go, etc. Using taxis for 7 of us would have been a mess! We used our own transportation on two of these tours.
The guides speak great English, are very knowledgeable about the locations, and are very friendly and accommodating. The van they provided us in Beijing seated all 7 of us comfortably but could have held 12. They picked us up at our hotel every morning and even dropped us off at the train station on our last day as we finished our last part of the tour and lunch. Our kids are 12, 9, and 7. It was great for them to be able to ask May their many questions! In a larger group they would have been bored and ignored by the guide.
The driver drove very well although going up the mountains to the Great Wall was trying for all of us to keep a calm stomach! He did great overall though.
The price was very affordable, which when included with all the above, I have recommended their service to all of my friends who live here in China. I live in Shanghai and I look forward to using CCT when we go to other cities in China in the future.
