        Exploring Yunnan
        Apart from the sightseing and the beauty of the area I've appreciated the punctual and precise organisation. I was travelling alone and I've quite a lot of experince in travelling around the world: evrything was organised in proper way, giving me the chance to see everything possible in this short period of time

        Excellent travel company!
        Wonders of Yunnan Travel are an excellent tour guide company and I cannot recommend them enough. They were very helpful creating a personalised tour to give us exactly what we wanted from our trip to China, and had so much knowledge about the best things to visit and when to go. The tour guides were so helpful making the travelling smooth and easy, with excellent English language skills, and amazing knowledge about the areas they were showing us, including the history and culture. They were also willing to share their personal lives and stories which made the trip even more special. The communication with Wonders of Yunnan was excellent, and Kaylee was absolutely wonderful. After our trip had finished, our flight out of Shangri-La was cancelled due to snow, and Kaylee helped us to cancel, refund and rebook flights to get back to Shanghai that evening! She was so helpful and spent so much time getting money off the cancellation fee for us. Thank you Kaylee!

        Great arrangements
        We booked a trip for our friends in Europe from Wonders of Yunnan. Kaylee was very patient and helpful in adjusting the proposal to the requirements of our friends. All were arranged very nicely from arrival to departure. They also arranged a birthday cake for one of our friends. Very attentive. We can really recommend to contact Kaylee if you want to have an individual trip to Yunnan.

        Great holiday in Yunnan
        Just returned home from our first Yunnan trip. Kaylee at Wonders of Yunnan arranged everything for us and provided many useful tips. As a result, we had a great time in Yunnan and it certainly exceeded our expectation. Will definitely use the service of Wonders of Yunnan again when we visit the region next time. Well done!

        Custom 19 day itinerary
        I contacted Wonders of Yunnan when I was considering a brief weekend trip to China during a business trip to Malaysia. I got excellent advice in response to my questions from Melanie at Wonders of Yunnan which helped me to see that my plans were unrealistic, so I did not make the trip after all. Melanie was very helpful even though I did not ever purchase anything from her or her agency. As it turns out, however, I planned a much longer trip for the following year and Melanie helped me through all my questions over several months. She considered all my requirements and provided lots of advice, creating the perfect tour for me as a solo photographer. Then, several months before the trip, I got into a relationship and invited my partner, making this a couple's trip. Melanie took care of all of the logistics for me and offered relevant advice again. During the trip itself, our driver was very good at helping us through the trip, although now the itinerary, which I had set up expecting to travel alone, did not suit us as a couple so well! This was not the fault of Melanie, the driver, or Wonders of Yunnan, of course. My partner and I decided to change our vacation to go to Bali instead, and the driver and Wonders of Yunnan were very flexible in helping us change our plans mid-trip. Definitely a wonderful experience all the way through! Highly recommended.

        Highly recommended for Custom Tour Services
        We contacted several travel agencies about an 11-day custom tour in Yunnan. We are very glad we chose Wonders of Yunnan. Our travel consultant Kaylee was prompt and clear in her responses, made excellent suggestions re.an itinerary and arranged guides, drivers, train tickets and superior accommodations. She designed a great trip for us. Our guides (Sissy in Kunming, Stephan in Dali, and Brandon in Lijiang) were excellent. Well-informed and flexible, they were quite open to our preferences and willing to make adjustments to our itinerary accordingly. For example, knowing my interest in Buddhism, upon arrival, Stephan suggested an old Buddhist temple in Dali; Brandon suggested switching our last day from Tiger Leaping Gorge to Lijiang Old Town - unexpected rain that last day made his suggestion to be an unexpectedly brilliant one....plus he arranged to get us the last two first-class seats on an earlier train to Kunming - most helpful!; and, Sissy was exceptional. A pleasure to be with, she understood and shares my passion for good tea and arranged for us to visit an excellent shop where I was able to taste and purchase some unusually high quality teas...a highlight I continue to enjoy. All, including our drivers, Mr. Dao and Mr. Shen, were committed to ensuring a great experience for us. An added plus: my wife is sometimes unsteady on her feet, and all our guides took care to make sure she was comfortable and safe. This kind of attention meant a lot to me. When Sissy met us on a Sunday afternoon, at the train upon our return to Kunming, we thanked her for her flexibility in changing her plans with her family to accommodate our earlier, unplanned arrival. She responded: "We're professionals." That sums it up quite well. We had a great time in Yunnan and thank all those at Wonders of Yunnan who made it possible - we could not have made this most memorable trip without you.

        Commercialized ancient towns
        Lijiang has two old towns, both are totally commercialized. However, you may still find clues about ancient Chinese culture and history among the old buildings. The residence of Mu's family is a place must see. Dali's Buddhism temple and pagodas are the essence of the city. As for the old city. only those main gates are still standing, inside the old city, all you can see are stores and people. These two old towns are for people who speaks Mandarin and knows Chinese history and culture, otherwise you won't appreciate the uniqueness of its multi-aboriginal background and tradition.

        Efficient and organised
        We booked a tailor made tour on short notice and our booking request was efficiently handled by Zoie. All details settled over a few days. Very efficient. We were very satisfied with the arrangements in both Lijiang and Guilin/Yuangshuo, and our guides Brendon and Fei are both pleasant, knowlegdeable and dedicated. I am happy to give my recommendations to all three. One area of improvement for Wonders of Yunnan is about safety belts in the cars. In both cars that was used during our tour, there were not proper three point seat belts for all passengers. My recommendation is that Wonders of Yunnan sets three point seat belts as a requirement for engagement for all cars that they use for their activity - and that it is followed up that the seat belts are in good condition. During our tour, we experienced one car incident. Luckily, only the car was damaged and no one was hurt. Our sons that was in the car at the time of the accident made their own arrangements back to the hotel. However, the incident made my concern about the seat belts more “real” .

        Amazing Email and Wechat Support Throughout 10-Day Free & Easy Itinerary
        It was the family's first trip to Yunnan and we were not quite sure what to expect in terms of the logistics and transport arrangements. Kayley Ke was most professional and prompt in explaining to us the various bits of useful information, as well as in providing us with thoughtful suggestions. Hiccups along the way was also promptly dealt with through Wechat discussions, helping the whole family enjoy a most memorable trip! Will be glad to hire their services should I return to Yunnan again!

        11 days private tour in Yunnan
        Contacted Wonders of Yunnan online requesting to tailor make a private tour to suit our preferences and budget. Travel Consultant Hardson Liu responded without delay (time zone difference allowed). With numerous email correspondence, our tour itinerary was designed. We (3 of us) are very satisfied with Hardson's suggestions on attractions, with his choice of hotels (clean & comfortable), with the service provided by the drivers throughout the tour. Hardson's professionalism, his attention to details and instant responds to emails have impressed us greatly. These were the reasons towards settling the deal online. Many thanks to

        Excellent experience with Wonders of Yunnan!
        I was browsing TripAdvisor for recommended private tour at Yunnan. Chance upon this highly recommended tour operator and decided to give it a try. Kaylee, our travel consultant was so patience in working out the best fit itinerary for our family ( I dropped her numerous requests and she even replied me outside her normal working time! ) The “non typical” tourist route she has recommended us for our short visit to Yunnan had given us a wonderful and memorable experience. Nevertheless, I have to also give credits to Vivian, our tour guide who accompanied us for most part of the tour (I wish we have her for our entire tour!) . She is just so amazing 😉

        Wonderful Yunnan
        After reading reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to book a China holiday for my husband and myself through Wonders of Yunnan and they didn’t disappoint. I was fortunate to get Zoie Li as my tour organizer. She always responded promptly to my emails, adding to the itinerary as I found more places that I wanted to see and making suggestions of her own. Our holiday was planned to be 17 days, however as a result of our passports being stolen, it ended up being reduced to 7 days. Zoie quickly reorganized our itinerary so we could continue. We visited Kunming, Dali, Shaxi, Lijiang and Shangri-La. Shaxi was my favourite place- definitely add it to your trip! We had a guide in each place and a driver Mr Lee. They were all excellent. We were driven to and picked up from airports and train stations, never left wondering what we had to do- very important as few people in these parts of China speak English. We saw lots of beautiful scenery and learned about how the local people lived from our guides. We hope to return to Yunnan and visit the other places we had planned to see. I’d like to recommend Wonders of Yunnan to other foreign travelers who are interested in arranging a tour of Yunnan with an excellent local tour agency.

      Dear Ngoc Diep, Thank you so much for your kind review and recommendation! We are happy that you enjoyed your trip to the Stone Forest and we could help you to adjust the tour according to your wishes. The Stone Forest in Shilin truly is an unique landscape seen no where else in China, and the Dynamic Yunnan Show is often praised by our customers as one of the best dance shows they have seen. It is a great representation of different ethnic minority cultures in Yunnan. Glad you enjoyed the show too! Thanks again for choosing Wonders of Yunnan Travel, we hope we can welcome you to Yunnan again and show you more of the beautiful places here! Best Regards, Kaylee Ke, info@wondersofyunnan.com
