Our 10-day 2019 mid Oct Silk Road trip turned out to be nothing less than magical....quite literally the itinerary put together by Lenna at China Xian Tour took us through 3 seasons over 10 days....a bonus in itself... apart from the breathtaking sights and experience along the way! Lake in a desert, snow-capped mountains, unreal layer-cake hills, ancient Silk Road ruins, Buddhist grottoes, museum with ancient European mummies from settlements by the desert and much more. Not to mention, good meals, wonderful hotels and comfortable transport with English-speaking guides.

Attentive in every details and quick responses in very messages. Without good tour operator, we cannot organize good trips. Also the guide, Sally is the best, knowledgeable and very attentive in every details . I give these two girls tump up... thank you very much.

We are a 60+ year old couple, very seasoned travelers - our travel style is to find good local guides and/or tours that offer excellent guidance with good value. Silk Road Tours was able to deliver with both excellence and value --thank you for a wonderful trip! Sophia responded to all requests with excellent suggestions and follow-through. We were able to travel efficiently through both high speed trains and with comfortable and safe car and driver in areas where the high speed trains were not available. Her suggestions for hotels were spot on - well located, comfortable and clean, with good value. For lunches and dinners - our local guides provided wonderful suggestions to eat locally - delicious and very good value. Over the ten days, I believe we hit all the highlights and then some - most enjoyable. Should you arrange your tour through Silk Road Tours, do ask for Jackie as your local guide in the far west -- will not be disappointed as she is both knowledgeable, engaging, and a lot of fun. We look forward to our next trip with Silk Road Tours through Sophia!
