Travelling in Xinjiang and Tibet is somewhat more difficult to arrange and negotiate than the rest of China. However my trip from Kashgar to Xian and into Tibet was seamless thanks to Adi and his team at West China Expeditions. After travelling extensively over the last 55 years I am at an age when I enjoy a good moan, however, there was nothing on this journey which hadn't been anticipated by Adi and dealt with. Transport and hotels were first class and trip highlights numerous throughout the four weeks. I spent a few days in Beijing before taking the trans-Siberian train into Mongolia (freezing in late November). Again this was all superbly arranged through West China and their partners. Many thanks to Adi and his team for their advice, organisation and companionship which made this trip so memorable.

I've used West China Expeditions when I travelled to China doing the Silk Route... in Turpan, Kashgar, Karakoram Highway (Tashkurgan), to the border with Kyrgystan,... Adi and everybody in the team were always very professional and welcoming. I will call them again when I'm back in China.

Nothing was too much for this travel company.. the trip started in Tianshui.. not to be missed for its exquisite rock caves high up a precarious set up steps. Then to Lanzhou.. (pay extra to see the secret grottos above the Buddha), Urumqi, Turpan, kuche and Kashgar. We insisted on flights , which meant doubling back but avoided long car journeys. Our guides were patient and adapted to our needs - showing us secret caves once they New what we liked .. the Buddhist art where not damaged is exquisite . We had mostly Han Chinese guides which eased the checking by the security. I can’t recommend this company enough..

I corssed into China over Torugart pass from Kyrgyzstan. Guide and driver picked me up right at the border, and that day I was the first to reach Kashgar of all crossing that day. Efficient and great service. Great guide with excellent english skills. Took me to a great local restaurant and nice sightseeing in old town. Same great guide and different driver took me later back to Kyrgyzstan over the Erkeshstam pass, and again it was efficient being the first to pass the border, possibly the only one making it before the long chinese lunch break. Great value, and I and a group plan to use them again next year for a self drive adventure.

Xinjiang is a unique and complex place, with vast distances and diverse landscapes. Even though I'd studied Chinese and had experience travelling in China, trying to arrange hotels in Urumqi felt incredibly frustrating to me. Fortunately, West China Expeditions made it easy: they booked decent hotels for me, helped me customize a trip and provided an interesting introduction to the main sights in both Urumqi and Turpan over the course of several days.
