Has anyone expeience of The China Guide Tour Sleep on the Great Wall. It basically includes transport from Beijing, meals, overnight on the Wall at Jinshanling, a 10k walk and return to Beijing. Everything you need is provided. I don't normally like 'tours' but this one looks very good to me! Any views on the new Park Hyatt? Thanks

Tour company recommendations for short tour (1 Replies)
Next month, my wife & I ( in our 60's) will have 5 days in Beijing for a conference, then 4 days to travel out to see Xian & Guilin area. We are seeking tour company recommendations. I have seen positive comments on The China Guide, Intrepid Travel, China Spree & China Odyssey. However most comments are several years old. Does anyone have more recent comments on which tour company to choose for a short time and a small-group tour to these areas? Martin

I highly recommend Travel China Guide for your tour to Beijing, Xian and Guilin. My husband and I and our 3 children (college age and teen) traveled to China in July 2016. Kelly at Travel China Guide was excellent in assisting us in planning our trip. She responded promptly, answered our questions and gave us accurate information. They helped us purchase bullet train tickets for travel after our tour. They were easy to work with. Their website has great information to help you prepare for...More

Thanks for the commercial. Do you do TV adds too? "for anyone going to Beijing - it's somewhat difficult getting around due to the language barrier" Only a tour operator would say that.
