We are very seasoned travelers and so the bar was high. Traveling with children ranging from 19 to 5 years of age provided additional challenges to keep all entertained and interested. This was also the first time I used Zicasso. I was beyond thrilled with both our tour operator and with Zicasso. I evaluated three quotes based on 1) program, 2) originality of components, 4) best use of our time, 4) ratings and locations of hotels and only lastly budget. Zicasso and our China tour company exceeded in every category with a nominal price difference. The guides were exceptional as were the drivers. They were all fluent, highly educated and had the car running where we went. WOW!
Of course the GREAT WALL of China including tobogganing down 1.5 kms. The fun activities we did as a family: opera face painting, rickshaw riding, we adored Suzhou - a Venice like town, the incredible shows (KungFu Show in Beijing and Shanghai Acrobatics). much to my surprise the factory tours we added back: Silk and terra-cotta. The educational aspect largely outweighed any commercial aspect.
Definitively, however I would spend more time in Shanghai which was the last on our tour. I would scale back Beijing in favor of Shanghai.
