    We heard of Alex through friends who had used him before. He organised an interesting two-week itinerary for us, combining traditional tourist attractions with some more individual activities. If you can, visit the Panda Breeding institute in Chengdu and the highlight of our tour was a home stay in an apartment with probably the finest rooftop views in Guilin. The three star hotels were all in perfect locations and far better facilities than we expected - apart from some of the breakfasts which can be an acquired taste. Our guides all spoke very good English and went out of their way to show us round street markets or recommend restaurants (A Sichuan Hotpot is a great experience). Using travel agents in another country can be a risk, but China Expedition Tours combined high levels of professionalism with great value for money. Many thanks to Alex and Team!

    Dear Monica,

    Thanks for an extremely well organised tour.It was fantastic to have somebody there to meet us at every airport and to have a seat as planned at every airport.
     
    All our guides were very helpful and spoke good English.
     
    Our favourite was Zoe from xi'an .  She was very flexible and knowledgeable. 
     
    The best hotel was the new world hotel in Xi'an.
     
    The homestay in Guilin was amazing, we couldn't believe the views. Guilin is a beautiful city and our hotel room provided views of the river.  Unfortunately the hostess could not speak English and the host was away on business.  Amber stayed with us until quite late to ensure we were comfortable.  Amber spoke the best English of all our guides.
     
    We saw an incredible acrobatic show in shanghai and would like to thank Tony for changing us to the Circus World show.  We had wonderful seats in the middle of the stage. I think this was the best  show we saw.  The Yangshou river light show was good but 280yuan per person was a little expensive.  It would be good to make you customers aware to the optional tours and how much they cost so that they can plan their time and budget appropriately.
     
    The only disappointment was the Yangtse River Cruise.  We paid for a room to accommodate 3 people.  On arrival we were taken to the room and told that we could squeeze a bed into the room but we should upgrade.  I had to agree, we could not fit into the room if we had another bed in there. A double room was not appropriate for a family of three.  So we had no alternative to upgrade to an Executive room with plenty of room to accommodate 3people.  This room was extremely comfortable but cost 990yuan extra.  We would have preferred to have paid for the correct room first.
     
    As we did not have accommodation vouchers we did not know what was booked so had to believe them that the booked room was inadequate. Lunch was not included on the last day of the cruise as indicated on the itinerary.  The food and service on the cruise was not 5 star and they were regularly trying to upsell us.   Morning Tea and afternoon tea were not included and coffee was extra except at breakfast.  On a 5 star ship you would not have to pay for anything except alcoholic drinks.
     
    Our room in Shanghai was too small to fit our luggage and 3 beds.  Once again we could have upgraded for 100yuan a night. This is definitely something you should consider in the future. We would prefer to pay a little extra to be comfortable but would prefer to be offered this in advance, not on the day of arrival.
     
     
    Regards

    Dear CET, My wife, son and I just returned from our trip to China, arranged by Monica. I wanted to jot a note to tell you how impressed and appreciative I was with the services that she provided. From the first email, through the final itinerary, through the execution of the trip, she was an absolute professional. She provided expert advice, helping me craft an itinerary to my needs. In the process she became as much a friend as a Travel Advisor. The trip was handled to perfection, no doubt a tribute to her expert planning and follow-up on the all the details. I asked for specific qualifications on the guides and in most of the cases it was spot on. All of the guides met the minimum expectations, and most of them far exceeded the expectations. I had an opportunity to use a number of different travel agencies in China, but it was her proactive and prompt responses, with very good information that made the difference. She is absolutely terrific -- I can't say enough positive things about her. Sincerely,
