I and my daughter were the only asians in a group of 13 travelers friends when we traveled in three big cities of China....Beijing- xian-shanghai. We had a wonderful time with all our mostly American friends.Guides in Beijing and Xian were very friendly and thoughtful.Except, they need to practice more in the English language.I hardly could understand their English , they spoke too fast yet not correctly. When I tried to ask the American friends, they shared the same opinion. In fact, China Tours promised an excellent English speaking guide.One of the event that hurt me a lot was the guide in Shanghai. When we first arrived in Phutong airport, we were greeted by the local guide who shook hands with each one of the Caucasian friends except me and my daughter.The lady guide never really talked to both us in our three days' stay in Shanghai. Made it worst, she even had the face to ask for tip end of the trip.
That's my very unhappy experience joining the China Tours.com
So, if you are an Asian, go for other much better tours than China Tours.I just felt I was humiliated.More
