Our favorite guides were Sara and Jimmy. Sara taught us a lot, both historical and current information. She also went out of her way to provide some music that she enjoys since she knew I was looking for popular music while I was in China. Jimmy provided a wealth of information and made sure we all were able to pick up a few last gifts before our time in China was over, and he did this without costing us any items from our agenda. They both packed a lot of activities and fun in a short amount of time. Went above and beyond what could have been expected of them. We wish we could have had more time with Judy. She was a lot of fun and had a unique personality. Our favorite tour activities were the small boat excursion and the Tang Dynasty dinner show.
We had no problems with communicating with any of the guides. Some spoke a more Americanized version of English than others but we enjoyed the differences between the guides. We never felt that we were missing information due to a lack of communication.
Just back from a fantastic trip to China! From Bonnie's help arranging my itinerary to the knowledgeable and friendly guides (Angela in Beijing, Wei in Xi'an and Avril in Shanghai & Suzhou) and the drivers the whole experience was amazing, if not too short! Too many highlights to mention, but two standouts were walking on the Great Wall (trip from Beijing) and seeing the Terracotta Warriors (trip from Xi'an). Will definitely return to see more of the country, and wouldn't hesitate to use China Private Tour again. Thanks!!
14 days trip Shanghai, Suzhou, Guilin, Yangshuo, Xi'an, Beijing (extra 2 days chilling out by ourselves in Beijing). Very professionally organised, especially taking note of our personal preferences. Guides waiting for us at each location and clearly outlining where and when we would be in their location. Besides the essential "must see" locations, the company organised a couple of small visits to locations that suited our preferences; the visit to a family's apartment home will live long in the memory: we were taught to make dumplings and noodles (!) and then sat down to an exquisite family meal. We made several friends - including a US couple on a similar tour - and most of the guides and we will be exchanging mails over the coming months & years Brilliant work, China Private Tour!
