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

We usually travel alone but we highly recommend this tour because it will save you a lot of time and organizing , it can be organize according to your personal wishes and the personal attitude and information from the local guide is priceless.
We decided to travel the last two weeks of March and it turned out to be a very good decision, because the weather was warm and nice, and it's just before the top season start so it wasn't crowded. And we see the blossoming of the trees.
We spend 2 wonderful weeks in China with different local guides in every city and we had a great experience. We spend 3 full days in Beijing, one in Luoyang, tow in Xi'an, five in Zhangjiajie including Fenghuang Ancient Town and Furong Old Village, and 3 days in Shanghai. It was very well planed logistic by car, plane and high-speed train .
The guides gives us a lot of information not only about the different cities but also everything about Chinese people, way of live , culture, food, souvenirs and so on.
The program was very flexible so we can change it according to the weather condition or to the logistic and that was great. They also give some suggestions about the free time and it was a great experience.

We were unable to get ticket for the Forbidden City and Rebecca helped us get them, an excellent service, very communicative and great value for money. I would definitely use their services again. We tried other pages in case it was not possible due to high demand and we know most services give the tickets to the highest bidder, you can see out there tickets for 70 dollars when the original price is only 8-9 dollars. This is why The China Guide is also recommended, they are honest, they charge a more than a fair price and they are very transparent during all the process.

We had a very good experience… Denny organised this tour for us… was very efficient, punctual, kind and very very organised…. Beijing was very cold (-15/-20) and our tour guide, Kathy, was very patient with us and changed the itinerary according to the weather in order for us to have a better experience which we indeed had! I truly recommend this tour !

Denny helped us out to arrange a fantastic custom itinerary to visit China. It included visiting the highlights in Beijing, Louyang, Xi'an, Chengdu, Zhangjiajie, Fenghuang, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai (over 22 days) Inclusions were pretty much everything:
- Private English speaking guide, and private car/driver
- Entry Tickets to all attractions
- All train and economy flights

We had the option to book our own Hotels we preferred.

He was very helpful and prompt in his email communication. Prices were competitive.

Highly recommend talking to Denny if a custom trip to China is something you are thinking about. 👍

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 were a group of 7 from Spain on a 15-day trip to China. We wanted to self-organize as much as possible, and hired The China Guide in order to arrange our transfers, including trains, provide local guides and make sure we had all the tickets for all the activities we agreed. We are glad to share they surpassed all of our expectations. Our contact Denny did a great job to make sure everything was according to plan, and supporting us whenever we had a problem with the hotels we had booked. We definitely recommend The China Guide.

I do recommend this agency. I usually travel on my own, but in China everything seemed too complicate, so I decided to rely on a Chinese travel company. The best choice ever. I must thank Denny for his patience and help. At the begining, I didn't know what to visit, but he sent me an increadible programme. Everything looked great. However, I added some places and remove some others, so finally it has been a tailor-made trip. And in terms of money, Denny knew how to adapt the programme to my budget, proposing some cuts in accommodation or in means of transport. The agency booked all the tickets (what's quite complicate in China) and all the domestic transports. When in China, we didn't need to contact with Denny at all, everything was working perfectly. Wonderful experience. I really recommend this company, and specially Denny, whose English is also increadible. Thanks The China Guide for these two weeks.

Our group had a great experience with The China Guide. Denny was very responsive and extremely helpful and flexible. Our group grew from 4 to 12 people and Denny was able to accommodate us and ensure our trip went smoothly. We went to the Great Wall and then the Summer Palace - although a bit tight to fit into one day given traffic (we were also there at peak school vacation time), it ended up working out well. Angela was an amazing tour guide who shared so much information about China's history and culture. I would absolutely recommend The China Guide.

We took a 5 days tour in Beijing - Xi'an and it was an unforgettable experience.
We are from Ecuador so we took the tour in Spanish, the tour guides were really kind with us and were always aware about us. Everything was very organized so you didn't have to worry about anything. 100% recommended.!
