Some two years ago I booked a four person two week private tour of China and when setting things up I found the service provided by the company's representative Mia Tsai extremely helpful and first class. Sadly, due to the pandemic the trip was postponed for a year t0 2021 and with no end in sight to the restrictions I have now cancelled the trip. During these change processes Mia has been most helpful and the deposit which was rolled earlier rolled over quickly returned. As I wrote to Mia as soon as it become practical to make the tour I will get back to you and hopefully you will still be in post

What an amazing trip this would have been ! Darn you Covid. We had a fabulous experience planning our trip with Mia Tsai. She was responsive and quick to make adjustments to our itinerary. The time and consideration she provided far exceeded any travel agency we have used. We had a magnificent trip planned complete with private guides and transportation. Then Covid hit. Mia and I communicated regularly about the possibility of delaying our trip. Then it became obvious that we would need to cancel. Since we had already made a deposit on our trip, Mia worked with The China Guide finance department and arranged a timely and smooth refund of our deposit. We were so looking forward to our trip. When travel opens back up we will definitely use Mia Tsai and The China Guide to plan our trip. Based on our experience planning, we highly recommend.

We are a group of 5 couples from different parts of the world. We made arrangements to be picked up and do an overnight trip to Beijing. Linda made the plan for sights,transportation, meals and hotel. Unfortunately, do to the pandemic, our trip was canceled. Through all, Linda was communicative, kind and friendly. We all received our refunds with the same thoughtfulness as our booking service. We hope that we can do our tour in the future. Thank you, Linda.

Where to begin...the china guide thought of everything. Everything was seamless and efficient. We did a night tour of the city, the Llama Temple, the Forbidden City, New and Old Summer Palace and a magnificent trip to Cuandixia Village that was breathtaking and a trip to Montanyu Great Wall. All well done, all wonderful. The absolute highlight and best part of our tour was our Guide Serena. She was knowledgeable about all of the places we went to. Serena offered advice about fantastic places to eat and even took us to get Donkey Burgers. Words cannot describe how wonderful Serena is at her job and how she made a fantastic trip infinitely better. She showed us the beauty of Beijing in a delightful way. I truly felt like we made a friend and would like nothing more than to come back and see more with Serena as our guide. This was the trip of a lifetime and we are better people for having taken it. Thank you.

I came across the China Guide while googling tours for the Great Wall before our trip to Beijing for Thanksgiving. They had very solid reviews and seemed to really want to cater to your wants instead of trying to upsale you things that no one cares for (stops at generic souvenir stores and sub-par restaurants, etc). I emailed them to get a free quote and Liang was prompt in getting back to me for the next few weeks, patiently answering all my questions and helping me curate the ideal itinerary for my siblings and I. We opted for a 2-day tour of Beijing sights and the Mutianyu Great Wall. Our guide, Albert, was phenomenal! He is SO knowledgeable about China’s history and landmarks. And if like us, you don’t speak a word in mandarin, having an English speaking guide with us was SUCH a lifesaver (as was having our own private driver bc getting a taxi in Beijing was almost impossible 8/10). Seeing all these incredible sights while having someone explain to us what it is we were actually looking at was seriously the best. And the food!!! Both days we had the most delicious meals!! Dishes we would never know about or order if we had been on our own. Yes, there are “cheaper” tours out there but as in everything else in life, you get what you pay for. I wouldn’t think twice before booking with The China Guide if I ever go back to China. My siblings and I had an incredibly memorable experience. Special thanks to Liang, Albert, and our sweet driver, Liu!!
