We have just arrived back in Australia today. Firstly, I would like to say we had a fantastic time with China Private Tour and would not hesitate in recommending their packages to our friends and family. Being the first time we have booked an organized trip via the internet, I must admit that I was a little apprehensive and not sure what it would be like but it was fantastic.
We had no complaints from the first day we were picked up from the airport. John our guide in Beijing was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to be with. Our driver was also fantastic, he drove safely and we felt comfortable with his driving.
Our hotels in both cities Beijing and Xian were clean and comfortable and breakfast was very good.
The service and food selection in all the restaurants throughout the tour trip were excellent and the organized shows were very good. The restaurant we liked the most was the Beijing duck dinner restaurant.
Our guides John in Beijing and Julia in Xian were fantastic. Their knowledge was outstanding and they explained everything in detail. Their English was good and we had no problem understanding them. They were fun to be with and took good care of our needs and requests. The cars were great, clean and comfortable.
We were extremely pleased with the tours we did and would not hesitate in booking another tour with China Private Tour in the future.
Hello, thanks for writing back. We are pleased to share our comments on our recent China tour with you.
