As China is such a large country this tour covers the most important and famous places therefore it was full on.
The three days on the Yangtse was a welcome chance to relax and prepare for the next stage of the tour.
The optional Sound and Light Show at Yangshuo is the most spectacular I have ever seen.
Shanghai at night was another highlight.
Thanks to Margaret our guide her knowledge and attention at all times made for the most memorable holiday.

What a wonderful trip. Margaret was the most amazing guide and ensured that we maximised our experience and enjoyment at each location. She was very knowledgeable about everywhere we visited, and her kindness and attention to detail was exemplary. She was one of the best guides we have ever encountered. The variety of experience on the trip was richer than I had expected, from river boats to pandas, rickshaw rides to Shanghai high rise, China old and new is a fascinating destination. The optional tours and activities are well worth it, and definitely enhanced the overall trip. For example the evening light show on the “water stage” in Yangshao is a spectacular production. Directed by the guy who delivered the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, with a cast of 600 it is one of the most ambitious shows of its type we have ever seen.

The most amazing trip, which far exceeded our expectations! It was fantastic. Totally full on, and a bit too busy on occasion, because we were there during the National Week (1st October), but our Tour Leader, Selina was simply brilliant. Such a lovely woman, knowledgeable, great fun and totally there for all of us. The trip was unbelievably well organised, all the connections worked, hotels were comfortable and accommodating. We had the best holiday ever! The sights and tours of China were amazing and I could not say which was my favourite. We felt that during the two weeks we really experienced a comprehensive visit to China, experiencing so many wonderful 'treasures' and all sorts of transport, food and cultures.

According to the brochure this trip is full on and that pretty much describes it . Fantastic tour. Numerous daily highlights as listed on the itinerary, but not the least Margaret our tour guide who looked after us so well and enabled us to see and experience (and eat) so much more. Various optional trips but all worth considering. Note to Explore. The "sound and light show" at Yangshuo is in fact a mesmerising performance on the Li River with the mountains as a backdrop and a cast of 600. The director went on to direct the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics

Fantastic trip, lots of interesting places and great mixture between big cities and ancient historic sites, lovely food and very knowledgeable tour guide ensuring everyone got the most out of the trip with everything working smoothly. Highlights were the great wall, terracotta army, pandas and Yangshou. Optional trips were worth it, do not miss show in Yangshou and chinese acrobats in Shanghai and budget extra for these.

the tour was great , the leader was very knowledgeable on each of the places we visited , saw loads of thing The group got to try loads of interesting food which we would not have know how to order if not for the tour leader. If I returned to China I would make sure to have the same guide again . She really added to the understanding and enjoyment of the trip .

A fantastic once in a lifetime trip, well worth going. Saw and experienced so many wonderful things, far too many to mention in this review. The local food was great and such a wide variety, not what you are likely to see in your local restaurants. One big tip would be to make sure you budget for all the optional extras.

Group fab. Good intro to travelling. Because country so culturally different. Pandas, terracotta warriors and city architecture were the highlights. Great to have Frank as our guide to food transport and culture. Stayed longer to see if I could get more from experience. Will return to China to do more soon.

Highlights were the Terracotta warriors, the Great Wall, pandas and the beautiful city of Yangshou. My recommendation would be take lots of spending money, as there are lots of 'optional' extras that are very expensive. This isn't made clear before the trip!
