- Very much enjoyed trip, having embarked on it in a "don't know what to expect" frame of mind. Our guide, Peter, was good fun and easy to get along with as well as knowledgeable and always able to answer our questions. The highlights were probably the Terracotta Warriors and the last couple of days on the Wall, which were amazing - partly because it was much more remote and also because the scenery and weather were so beautiful. The Sound and Light show at Yangshuo and the acrobats in Beijing were also memorable. The accommodation varied in standard but the beds were always clean and there was always a shower though some definitely better than others!
Tips? Carry a fork or spork if you're not proficient with chopsticks, be prepared for "squatting" toilets and carry toilet paper. Expect lots of steps both up and down on the Wall!
