Reviews for Exciting family vacation in China


review 3 Jan 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The itinerary planned by our operator worked out beautifully for my family of 8. A couple of the guides, especially Johnnie in Beijing and Susan in chengdu engaged with the children and helped make our time in those cities very enjoyable. we loved that logistics were taken care of by our guides n drivers. The children loved the ice skating, the time at the Great Wall, learning to cook their own dishes, spending Christmas day at the panda research center, biking in town in the countryside.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Ski pants are not needed in Beijing. More warning taking the rafts on Li river. It may have been better to take the public ferry even though it took 6 hours. We could have been inside and not so cold and miserable on the raft. We had to be on the bus for the extra 4 hours to get to Yangshao.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Gave work to guides and drivers. Our small group was able to use smaller vehicles for transportation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent planned itinerary. I appreciated the time and patience as we worked out the details of the trip. She is very responsive and an excellent communicator. My goal was for my family to enjoy the 10 days we had together and that the grandchildren would have a wonderful time. The trip met all my expectations.
