Just a note to say how good a tour we have just had with Sinotours. It's a different way of booking a holiday and an awful lot of trust is put into their hands. You wire through a deposit or two depending on the tour you require and then pay the balance on arrival. Now a lot of people won't go about booking a holiday in this manner but it worked well for us. Sinotour were professional all the way through, great tour guides who spoke very good English and gret knowledge of the areas we were in. They were prompt in collecting us from train stations and airports and delivering us back in good time to meet connections. The hotels that they chose for us were of a good standard and all meals were in good class restaurants, I have no complaints or issues with Sinotours and they are considerably cheaper than the likes of Wendy Wu. You just have to trust them and the way they work and it does, they showed us what a fantastic country they have and will certainly recommend them to anyone.
