Wild China gave our family (party of 4 with two 20 something children) a truly memorable, first class touring adventure around China, a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember and treasure forever. Earlier in the year, we worked with one of their local representatives (Shiming Zuo) to identify our travel preferences, desires and concerns and Wild China could not have been more flexible with us. Shiming really listened to what we wanted in the planning phase—adding suggestions that we would never have thought about and making sure that our itinerary was full, but not overloaded. She was always available via email (even on weekends) and we did have two long conversations as the trip neared.

Once or trip was underway, we were impressed with the WC local tour guides and their drivers. In each city/area, we were met by a guide who was extremely experienced in the local sites as well as out of the way attractions, and were all good English speakers. A lot of the highlights for us were not the usual tourist destinations (which we loved), but rather the more personal cultural experiences throughout our itinerary. We will always remember our family reflexology in Beijing, our time in the Hutongs in Beijing with the cricket master, our private Tai Chi class with a master at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, our special dinner party with the Naxi family in Yunnan province, making dumplings and trying to make cheese, and even an ear cleaning at Wangjianglou Park in Chengdu. I would never have thought to include any of these in our trip, and yet they became some of the most special family bonding moments of the trip.

This was our first private tour anywhere. We tend to research a place and do it “our way.” This trip changed my view of traveling—so much of what we did and saw could not have been accomplished on our own, and certainly without any knowledge of Mandarin. And throughout the trip, we luxuriated in the knowledge we were in the safe and savvy hands of Wild China. They made the trip extraordinary—I never could have arranged what they did and as seamlessly. We would highly recommend WildChina to anyone who is thinking about taking a trip to China and would not hesitate to book another tour with them again!

We had the most amazing Tibet trip and enjoyed this special journey to the fullest! WildChina was very helpful and responsive from the beginning of our travel planning. They helped us to plan our Tibet vacation, came up with suggestions, customized our plan according to our liking and had great hotel recommendations. They created a personal travel plan (PDF) and always updated it very quickly if there were any adjustments. WildChina also helped us to get the Tibet travel permits and the train tickets from Xining to Lhasa. They have very good connections to local tour guides in Tibet, so we were very happy to get to know Tibet by a local Tibetan. Our travel agents Lorraine and Jenny were always there for us and available via email, WeChat and phone. We could really feel that WildChina is a high-end travel agency with a great customer service. The whole time, from planning stage until our return, we felt in good hands and can highly recommend choosing WildChina!

WildChina wow-ed me. I've used tour agencies for other destinations, and hands down, WildChina was head and shoulders above the rest. From the start, we had a fabulous travel "designer" who crafted a custom itinerary based on our family's interests and mobility needs. Then at each of the five regions we visited, we had a phenomenal tour guide who spoke excellent English, was highly knowledgable about the region, catered to our every needs, had a sense of humor, and was warm and friendly. I kept thinking our next guide couldn't be as strong as our last one, but indeed each city's guide was fantastic! No detail was left unaccounted for, and we were able to travel with 100% ease, even in remote regions of China. WildChina was able to craft a unique, top-notch experience for us, and I'd recommend them for anyone planning to visit China.

I travelled with Wild China for three very special experiences for me this summer. Two in Guangxi province and one in Yunnan.

What I like about Wild China is that they draw upon their expert knowledge of the area and my personal interests to tailor a truly bespoke itinerary that was engaging and exciting.

Kudos to Alice, my trip curator, who was flexible and creative in developing the perfect itinerary and make things work despite the various COVID-19 requirements in the different locations. I looked after very well and always felt safe.

Kudos as well to my three guides, Ella, Wei and Shelly. They really do make Wild China a different experience with a genuine interest in the local culture and climate and thoughtful adaptability to make the most of each location.

A great trip!

The whole experience of China was an absolute delight, one never to forget. WildChina are superb, from the initial engagement right through to follow up on an expertly curated trip. They listen and adapt and produced a trip which was spot on, they recognise you have travel agent choices and go that extra mile to give you confidence that you made the right decision. Fantastic guides, expert drivers and a superb itinerary. Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Guilin, Longji, Yangshuo, Shanghai, taking bullet trains where available made for a less stressful trip. We were made to feel so welcome in China and I cannot recommend WildChina enough in helping you discover this beguiling country for yourselves.

Extremely attentive and dedicated organizers focused on providing a high-quality service. From the choice of places to visit to the historical explanation, as well as the spontaneous interaction with the tourist group, it is clear that we are in the hands of professionals.
I highly recommend WildChina to everyone who wants to leave Beijing for the weekend (or more) and learn a little more about Chinese culture and tradition.

Thankyou WildChina for making our recent family trip to Guizhou all that we had hoped for and more. Our guide Shiau was amazing, he is an asset to WildChina and a passionate and knowledgeable representative of Guizhou. We truly appreciated his obvious enthusiasm and insight and learnt so much on this trip. The trip, expertly coordinated by Alice was exactly what we had hoped for, lots of 'off the beaten track' experiences led by Shiau, away from the crowded tourist sites and a real immersion experience into the beautiful mountain communities of the Miao and Gejia people. Our driver was super careful and cautious and we felt very safe in his capable hands. Our holiday was more than a holiday, it felt like a true adventure, an incredible experience, which I highly recommend.

WildChina Travel organized and executed an amazing once in a lifetime journey for our party of three adults through parts of China (Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai, Guilin, Yangshuo and Hong Kong). Alice and Mei created a fabulous itinerary for us based on some thoughts that we provided and lots of ideas that they presented to us for consideration. We visited the great sites that shouldn’t be missed (the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors, for example) but we also delighted in off-the-beaten path experiences including a cooking class on handmade dumplings, an afternoon visit with a gentleman famous for his fighting crickets, a class with a master calligrapher, hands on instructions from an expert in fan making and lunch at the home of local farmers (just to name a few). With respect to our guides and their drivers – they were FABULOUS and I can’t say enough good things about them. Jerry, Yale, Ariel, James and Agnes were incredibly competent, knowledgeable and highly proficient in English – as well as warm, friendly, funny and always on time – they truly went out of their way to provide an exceptional experience for us. I highly recommend WildChina Travel – their team is smart, creative, detailed oriented, attentive, knowledgeable and very familiar with China - we definitely intend to use them again in the future.

Wild China curated a wonderful program for my and my friends family to travel from Beijing to Harbin. We had three young children under 6 and were going to -20 degree whether, so having a program that was suitable for the children was important, and they nailed it. They absolutely loved the train trip. One of the programs wasn't available due to covid restrictions, but they provided a timely alternative that was great.

Our tour guide, Scarlett was a Harbin local and fantastic with the kids. We called her our coffee fairy as she turned up with hot lattes each morning we were picked up at the hotel.

The only thing we would have appreciated was restaurant recommendations, although it was a little difficult knowing what was and wasn't open with covid spreading throughout China. We had a not so great meal at a Russian restaurant, but a fantastic Dongbei hot pot experience at a local buzzing restaurant that a Chinese friend told us to go to.

Hi AlexandracC9783RF, We are very happy to know you and your friends' family had a wonderful time with us in Harbin in the past New Year's holiday! It was a surreal time when zero covid policy ends overnight, and many people got COVID, so lots of restaurants were closed at this time... We appreciate your understanding, and will work with our local team on the restaurant recommendation. Thank you! Happy New Year of 2023!

I wanted to take my 14 year old son away for a trip somewhere special, and I wanted it to be the best possible experience. We decided on Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) as it provides some nice hiking and isn’t too far from home (Nanjing). Travel can be tricky in China, especially with Covid restrictions and all the ever changing rules that are currently in place. So I needed to use an agency I could trust. And Wild China really did deliver! They offer such a great service allowing us to be as flexible as possible (we only wanted to go during good weather) and really tailoring the trip to our desired wishes. The organisation was spot on…pre-trip planning was tight and the whole trip went without a single hitch. I would honestly say that it exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Jenny and Sara and our great guide John!

I would gladly and wholeheartedly recommend Wild China.

Hi samexplorer, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review and let us know you and your son had a great time hiking Yellow Mountain with our guide John! Happy about the weather as well.
