    Very well designed itinerary allowing you to see plenty of places in China and take party of many activities. This is a very interesting yet intense trip but a fantastic way to see a lot in a short time. Our guide was very pleasant and helpful and had a great sense of fun.

    Fantastic and very varied tour of China. Within quite a short about of time we managed to cover lots of the main sites of interest but we also had time for walking, cycling and evening shows. Although the trip was quite fast paced I never felt particularly rushed. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledge and went out of his way to make the trip more comfortable

    Only great things to say about this trip! We traveled for a few months and the China dragon trip was the best part. The trip allows you to see so much and really experience China in a unique way. It is extremely hard to communicate in China, therefore having the tour guides and transport already organised makes the trip run so much more smoothly and you make good use of your time there.
