My husband and I recently returned from a two-week trip to China (Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Guilin / Yangshuo, and Shanghai) that was completely organized by WildChina, and it was incredible - it exceeded our expectations, which were quite high as we are experienced travelers!

From the first contact with Wild China (I worked with Isabel), I felt that I had a travel agent who was genuinely listening to me and my husband and our wants / desires for this trip, and she crafted an itinerary that was simply flawless. It had the perfect balance of city and countryside, culture and nature, and active and relaxing activities. When hiccups came up on the trip (many the fault of me and my husband), the staff responded without hesitation and made sure everything was okay. When my husband lost his wallet, our guide hiked back down the mountainside trying to locate it; our driver worked with the security at the site to pull video footage and see if we could figure out what happened (we did get the wallet back). I accidentally left several pairs of pants behind in a hotel, and Isabel worked tirelessly to locate them and get them shipped back to the US for me. Guides went out of their way to ensure our comfort at all times (finding the best western-style bathrooms, providing hand sanitizer and tissues, etc.) and were quick to provide cell phone numbers so that we could call them if we had any questions - even when we were on our own.

It was a level of customized service that many don't provide, but that - as a frequent luxury traveler - I sincerely appreciate. My husband and I both thought that our trip to China was one of the best trips we have been on, and we know without hesitation that we will work with Isabel and the team at WildChina for our return visit (which I hope is soon!). You won't regret working with WildChina - you will only be sad when your trip is over and you don't have another trip to China to look forward to.

During our stay in China we visited Xi'an for four days. We were very fortunate to come across the services of Wild China, who not only provided a very detailed and interesting itinerary, but left us in the care of our guide, Maggie, who was superb. We were keen to really explore the culture and food of China, and felt we really got to know this city, including some of its more local attractions and restaurants. We enjoyed a wide range of activities, from cycling on the city's wall through to trying out calligraphy and making dumplings (!). We would highly recommend the experience and services of a Wild China, and would very very happily use them again. We had a great family holiday.

We’ve had the most unforgettable trip to China and are so happy we booked it through Wild China. It was indeed a lifetime experience, and we enjoyed every minute of it.
We (2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 14) toured for 3 weeks: Shanghai, Hong Kong (on our own), Guilin, Chengdu, Xi’an and Beijing.
- trip planning
We specified the cities we wanted to visit and left it to Alice to suggest and plan the visits and experiences. Everything was absolutely perfect. We are so glad we trusted Wild China and the program Alice prepared. Her approach was very professional and knowledgeable. She was very reactive and always present before and during our trip. Our days were very busy, but well balanced between visits and experiences (painting, biking, boating, etc.).
- guides
In each city, we were greeted by a different guide. All were amazing, with different profiles and approaches, but they each made a huge difference to our getting a feel of the various places we visited, and understanding the Chinese people better. They are super motivated, very dedicated and you can tell they really enjoy showing visitors around and having them discover new places and new food, and understand a different culture and society. They are truly knowledgeable and experienced. All went beyond what we expected.
- hotels: again, selected by Alice. Amazing. All of them. Super service, very confortable, luxurious. It was such a pleasure to get back to our room, quite exhausted at the end of the day.
I cannot recommend Wild China enough. We are thinking of visiting other parts of China (Tibet in particular), and we will definitely trust them again in organizing our trip.

Hi Pascale,

Your review simply made our day! China is big and so is the regional variety. We are so pleased that you and your family had a terrific time with WildChina and enjoyed the various flavors while you visited Shanghai, Guilin, Chengdu, Xi’an and Beijing with us! We hope to help you visit many other parts of China in the near future (Tibet in particular)!

Best,

We just returned from a 15 day trip to China. From start to finish, Wild China did an incredible job. It’s certainly not a cheap way to travel, but you get what you pay for. From our initial inquiry, the travel planning team were incredibly responsive and insightful. They put together a superb itinerary and gave us full transparency into the costs. Once we landed in China, everything exceeded our expectations. The guides were superb - warm, knowledgeable, flexible and thoughtful. Special mention to Michael in Beijing, and Ariel in Shanghai who were like members of our family. We still miss them and talk about them. Our hotels were superb - Wild China ensured early check in when we arrived off our international flight, and connecting rooms where possible. We opted to have lunches included, and, based on our requests, our guides took us to excellent local restaurants where we were frequently the only westerners. We loved the experience, and the guides always ordered a variety of dishes for us to try - always too much for us to eat! We asked Wild China to avoid “touristy” attractions, but to include experiences that were truly local. This included shopping with a chef then cooking in his kitchen which was a trip highlight. We went with high expectations. Wild China easily surpassed our wildest dreams!

My husband, daughter and I booked a four day tour in Beijing with Wild China and had a fantastic experience. Christine helped plan our trip, making sure our days weren't just filled with rushing from sight to sight. Our guide in Beijing, Jerry, was exceptional. He possessed the perfect combination of historical knowledge, ability to convey day to day life and business in China, humor, kindness and flexibility - and his English was perfect. We always felt like we could ask about anything we saw, and get a great answer from our guide. Our planned itinerary was a great way to see some of the key sights in Beijing without feeling overwhelmed, and the addition of a driver who really knew his way around the city was a huge benefit. Even though we were on a short trip with a full schedule, Jerry was careful to make sure that we were relaxing and enjoying being on holiday and never making it feel like we were rushed. I would book another trip with Wild China without hesitation.
