Zhangjiajie 1 Day Private Highlights Tour
I only had one day in Zhangjiajie and wanted to make the most out of it. Before I even met Victor, we already talked on wechat and planned what I wanted to see. He organized a custom tour for me to guarantee, I got to see everything that I had on my list. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t very good on the one day I had. Victor adjusted the tour in no time and made sure I had the best day. We started with a cable car ride to Tianmen mountain. Despite the fact that we couldn’t see anything once we got to the top of the mountain, it was still very much worth going up there. The glass walk was also very interesting and cool to see. Due to the weather hardly anyone was on it, which was great. The fog made the scenery almost look fake. It was amazing! Afterwards we took many escalators down to take a shuttle bus down the windy streets to get back to the station. After a quick lunch at a local spot, which was super delicious, we headed to Avatar mountain in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. We took a bus up to the last shuttle bus stop and made two stops along the way to get the best views of Avatar mountain. It wasn’t as foggy at the park, so I was able to see the beautiful Avatar mountain. I had an amazing day and I can highly recommend Victor. His English is excellent and he’s very organized. If I ever decide to come back on a sunnier day, I’ll make sure to book a tour with Victor.

Excellent Miss The Crowds Photography
Victor was really wonderful in providing the best locations for sunrise and sunset. Time was not a factor. When all the crowds had gone he made sure we had the best spot and light. Not easy to get up so early but best photography has a price to pay. My wife made a mistake with her luggage and Victor carried it for her. Really a lovely chap and he allowed the best in a very very crowded month. Do not hesitate to contact Victor for a true bespoke trip.

Amazing time
It is a significant show that I was able to see due to the amazing guide! Everything was taken care of, English speaking and just wonderful guide. I don't think I would have had such a great experience if I tried to arrange everything by myself. The show is definitely worth seeing! Great time and service 10/10

Great Great Guide and Service
I spent couples of days traveling Zhangjiajie, which actually a wonderful place worth paying a visit. Because of difficulties in communication, I booked a tour with Victor, who is a great guy, professional, truying to make the food suitable with our taste, understanding our background. He asked us every detail of ourselves before the trip so that this trip would be smoothly. The room and hotels are all great except the one in FengHuang Ancient Town, but that one near the center and convenient for us to go around, so advantages outweigh disadvantages. There are so many wonders around the place, like Avatar Mountain, which impresses all its visitors by its magnificent scene and the breathtaking view of Ancient Town may take all of your sadness. Thanks to Victor, I can speak and understand some Chinese words. His story is wonderful, too. I would recommend the tour to anyone as it is the greatest and valuable in my experience

Fantastic tour
I took the tour to 張家界 this Chinese national holidays in May. As usual, there were so many people. I took the hiking tour, so less people and I really enjoyed the nature. My guide was Victor, and he has 13 years experience and he knows very well. He selected the best way for the tour, so I didn’t need to wait long time. If you are wondering to chose which tour is the best, I definitely recommend this tour and the guide Victor. Thanks a lot!! 5月の中国の祝日に、張家界のツアーに参加しました。いつも通り、どこも物凄く混んでいました。私は、ハイキングツアーを選んだので、人は少なく、自然を堪能できました。ガイドは迎麟さんで、13年の経験を持っており、色々、良く知っていました。彼は、いつも最善の方法を選んでくれたので、長時間待つことは、あまりありませんでした。もし、あなたが、どのツアーが良いか悩んでいるのならば、このツアーと、ガイドさんを強くお勧めします!ありがとうございました!

What an amazing show. Very spectacular scenery, lighting, music and cast. Well worth going to. There are subtitles but I didnt read much as way more interested in what was going on on stage. The story line is a basic live story so reading was irrelevant really. If you do read the subtitles the translation just adds to the fun.

Although we first encounter Victor in 2017 via a Juighaigou Park tour, I would like to recommend him for his services at Zhangjiajie area. Victor is a knowledgable and caring guide. My husband enjoys photography and Victor always suggested interesting angles to take the photographs. His recommendations to restaurants in surrounding areas were always local and interesting. We would highly recommend Victor and would use hime again in future visits to China.

He also gave us good recommendations for restaurants. Would definitely use Victor of China Toruk Tour again in the future!

Zhangjiajie with Victor (guide)
Touring this region with Victor was really wonderful. The scenery was spectacular and Victor was a superb guide. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and couldn’t do enough to make our stay memorable. A true gentleman who clearly loved his work and was proud to show off his region to visitors. Highly recommend!

An Awesome Way to Experience Zhangjiajie
For a photographer like myself, coming to Zhangjiajie was a thrill. But getting to the best places, at the best times, is a challenge -- particularly given that I don't speak the native language and that the park is so big. Victor solved all that. Better yet, he was super accommodating, friendly, and responsive. I jokingly called him "the mayor" because he seems to know everyone and everywhere to go -- which made feel welcome and like I was truly having best experience. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his company.
