Robert's 13 Days China Tour including Shanxi Tour (Datong and Pingyao)


We have been quite busy since returning from our trip to China, and have not been able before now to respond to your request for an evaluation. We enjoyed our trip very much and were quite pleased with the arrangements and services of China Culture Tour.

While a number of the attractions were memorable. If we had to select one as the most memorable, it would be the Terra Cotta Warriors site. It was something we had read about and were looking forward to seeing, but it exceeded our expectations. A truly memorable experience.

Attractions not to be missed: Tiananmen Square; Forbidden City; Summer Palace; Hanging Monastery; Pingyao Ancient Town; and Terra Cotta Warriors. Also Shanghai, which we saw on our own, not as a part of the tour.


"We recommend you to customize a private Shanxi Tour based on your interests and requests!"

We liked all of our tour guides, and would say that Alex Lin was the most outstanding. He had an enthusiasm for what he was doing and the sites we visited with him. He had an excellent command of the English language and he gave us information about China and China culture beyond the sites we visited.

All of the hotels were up to standard and were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Jing's Residence in Pingyao – delightful room, most accommodating staff, and excellent restaurant. The breakfast meals at the hotels were generally satisfactory, with the breakfast at the Hotel Cote Cour Beijing being excellent. We would give the lunch restaurants mixed reviews – see our itemized evaluations which we turned in during the tour for comments on spec

WOW sites: Great Wall, Hanging Monastery, and Terra Cotta Warriors.

We would certainly recommend your company. We will make an effort to place our comments on Trip Advisor.
