“Xinjiang Province, China - Private Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We again used CCT to help us put together an itinerary that would show us the Silk Road tour through Xinjiang Province. We wanted a private tour with a guide and driver only and everything was booked for us based on our requirements. We had great guides and drivers and were very well looked after and felt safe throughout the whole of this region which is huge. All of our flights and accommodation was booked for us and we are able to tailor the program to suit our needs including changing the program on the go, the guides were very flexible and it was our tour which meant we dictated the pace and where we wanted to stop if we wanted to take photos etc. Would definitely recommend CCT to anyone who wanted to travel in China.

“Day Trip in Shanghai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I used China Connection Tours to arrange a private tour for myself and three children for a day in Shanghai. I found a few travel agents via the web and CCT offered a good program, competetive price. We were picked up at the cruise terminal by driver and guide. Thr tour guide's English was okay and he was very flexible on timing and good with the kids.
We visited the Shanghai Zoo first. Traveling on the roads in Shanghai is a bit of nightmare because of the amount of traffic, but our driver was good and we always felt safe in the van. The zoo was interesting and we opted to stay at the zoo longer, so we missed the opportunity to see some other sites. A bit disappointing, but it was our choice. We then went to central Shanghai, ate dinner and went to a Chinese acrobat performance.
We were dropped at the airport with plenty of time to catch our 1 am flight. It was a long day, but overall a very good glimpse at Shanghai. Karen (travel coordinator) was responded quickly and checked up on us to be sure that everything went smoothly. We would recommend using CCT for travelling in China.

“Excellent Coordination For Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I started to get in touch with China Connection last 2012 through Miya. Compared to other travel companies, they provide train ticket booking in China. My first booking with them is for the high-speed trains from Nanjing to Beijing (round-trip) and the process was smooth, safe and secure. My tickets were delivered on time. I usually help friends out who are traveling to China through China Connections because they have good in-depth knowledge about traveling around China.

“Best All Around Value!! Kids loved it too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

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.
