We did a private tour to Zhangjiajie with China Highlights in July and had a great time! It was hot, but our tour guide Chris was awesome at making sure we went to the best places at the best times to avoid the heat and lines. He obviously knows the area inside and out! We got to see some amazing (and completely empty) parts of the park that didn’t seem to be on any other tourists radar - and they weee STUNNING. We’re so glad we did this tour! Thanks Chris!!

Zhangjiajie was the first stop for my family on a two-week trip and we didn’t want to leave! We spent three days and saw the National Park, Tianzi Mountain, Yuanjiajie, the Grand Canyon with the glass bridge, and Tianmen Mountain. Zac with China Highlights arranged the trip and Ann was our tour guide. Everything was so smooth and easy with them- they knew our flight had been changed (we traveled during a low season) even before we did! Everybody in our family enjoyed the stunning scenery and breathtaking/scary glass sky walks- recommend this trip for adults and families alike. Having a tour guide is best- we would have wasted a lot of time with logistics otherwise. Ann knew the best times and methods of getting around everywhere and made good recommendations on everything from food to timing. We especially appreciated that we never felt like we were being fleeced because we were tourists- nobody steering us toward overpriced junk souvenirs. We also especially enjoyed Ann’s sharing of local culture, stories, and songs (bonus: Ann has a beautiful singing voice!) We recommend this trip wholeheartedly and had an excellent experience with China Highlights!

I wouldn’t normally use a tour company. But I decided to this time because of how quickly China closes off areas during the pandemic and how little communication gets translated into English. I decided to do this tour with a guide so that if there were an outbreak, I could rely on them for information and to get out of the area quickly.

My guide in Zhangjiajie was Tony. He did his best to make me feel welcome, and show me the best of his area. Zhangjiajie is very wet - 250days/year, so make sure you’re prepared with a proper poncho, dry sac, waterproof shoes, quick-dry clothes etc. The first day I was there it poured. Despite having a poncho on, I still ended up with a wet bag and wet clothes. Glad I had a life proof case on my phone or I wouldn’t be able to have gotten any photos. During our days together, he was very good about choosing local lunch spots and introducing me to the local specialities, I happily ate the “street food” that he introduced me to that was near my hotel (The Pullman)- and ended up going back to this area for other meals. It was cheap, tasty, and easy to get to. Tony has excellent English, and a rich knowledge about the local people and traditions.

It’s true what others have posted about the Chinese tourists literally pushing their way through for things, and huge queues. I’m an early riser, so I was shocked that Tony suggested we start at 10am most days; however, his logic was sound. All the Chinese tour busses are up and heading out at 730/8am and then in they are in the queues. If we had gone at that time, I would have been standing for hours for the elevator or cable cars instead of using the hotel gym or having a leisurely breakfast. Avoid places like this all together on a Chinese National Holiday, there will be no hiding from the hordes then! I went for a weekend (Sat-Mon), and not on a Chinese holiday, but it was still hard to get some photos, and I still had to queue for things (30ish min) because of the numbers of tourists.

If I were to go again, I would do 2-3 days in the National Park alone (Hallelujah Mountain, Mount Tianzi) but do more actual trekking. You can see the “highlights” of the park in 1 day, if you take the various shuttle busses between places. However, there are several paths that allow you to walk up or down the mountainside. You can take the cable car up (have your camera ready!), and then it is possible to walk down, but apparently it takes 3-4hrs, and there are several thousand stairs. I wanted to do that, but was short on time so ended up taking the cable car down. The national park does close late afternoon, so it’s important to start your descent early enough. If you choose to hike up, then you’ll probably want an early start to your day.

The Zhangjiajie flights are notoriously late due to weather, so try to schedule one for the early evening, to avoid being up all night.
The best time to go will be March/April or Oct/Nov. During the summer some things are closed because of too much rain, during the winter, some things are closed due to snow/ice.

I highly recommend China Highlights tours, and if you come to Zhangjiajie, ask for Tony!

This has got to be the most beautiful place in China! It was an amazing trip! I was nervous to travel alone with two young children, but Ann made it so easy and fun! She is an excellent guide! She took us to some delicious restaurants. She even sang us some beautiful, traditional Chinese songs! We stayed at the beautiful Crowne Plaza Zhangjiajie. They provided a delicious breakfast and everything we needed.
Our tours took us to the National Park, the Tianzi Mountain, the Hallelujah Mountains, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, Tianmen Mountain and Baofeng Lake. I am from Arizona and have been to the Grand Canyon there many times. I am so glad I finally got to see China's Grand Canyon--absolutely breathtaking! China really has created some amazing infrastructure that makes seeing all of these even more spectacular! The kids loved the glass bridge, the glass walkway, the ride down the mountain in an elevator, the ride down the mountain in an escalator and the amazing zip line. China Highlights never disappoints. We are so grateful to them for allowing us to see places all over China in such a relaxing and stress-free way. They go above and beyond anything you can imagine.

We had another amazing tour with China Highlights. Total 5 days in zhangjiajie and Fenghuang was so good. Everthing we saw was spectacular. I highly recommend you visit Zhangjiajie with China Highlights. Get a hold of Christy who is always great with the best itinerary and ask for the amazing guide Lily. Lily made us feel like home. Lily, thank you for bringing our morning coffee all the way to our hotel:) knowing we wouldn't have survived without coffee!
Many thanks to you all! Looking forward to our next adventure.

I am absolutely impressed with this place. I did a private three day tour that included Zhangjiajie National Park, Tianzi Mountain, Grand Canyon, Glass Bridge, Baofeng Lake and Tianmen Mountain, and all of it was perfect.
Alisa and Kevin from China Highlights did a fantastic job, arranging everything smoothly. Thank you for that. I highly recommend.

I did a private three day tour that included Zhangjiajie National Park, Tianzi Mountain, Grand Canyon, Glass Bridge, Baofeng Lake and Tianmen Mountain, and all of it was amazing. Ann from China Highlights did a fantastic job, arranging everything smoothly so I got the most out of my experience. She went the extra mile taking me to wonderful restaurants where I ate the best food I have had living in China for the last 4 years. The scenery is breathtaking and there are a lot of adventurous activities. I would most definitely recommend China Highlights to help with your trip, it made things so easy. Zhangjiajie is absolutely worth the visit. I had an incredible time here.

Thank you to Linda, Mr Du and Kimi for a wonderful 6 day tour around Zhangjiajie. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we’ll definitely be using China Highlights for future trips!

The tour was totally flexible and Linda went out of her way to make sure we were happy and comfortable especially regarding food and our travel between places. She also ensured we went to all the best scenic spots, avoided crowds and never stood in queues for very long. It was very personal and we really enjoyed getting to know Linda over the past few days here.

There is no way we could have experienced this beautiful place on our own especially a place that is more remote like Zhangjiajie. I highly recommend any international tourist or expat living here to enquire with China Highlights.

Thank again!

Our guide Li took us to a number of attractions with breaktaking views. During this trip, we also ate a lot of interesting and delicious food, unlike what we had eaten before. Li took care of all the arrangements, like tickets etc. She also found trails in the park that traded off between our desire to be off the beaten track while still seeing beautiful views. China Highlights also takes care of the transportation from the hotels to the various attractions. In addition to the natural attractions, Zhangjiajie is a nice city to visit. My wife joined in with a large group dancing in the park, and we found a cool cafe with a large selection of beers from microbreweries around the world, including in China. All in all, we had a great trip, and would recommend booking a trip with China Highlights.
