Working with this travel agent to arrange our trip to China was an experience I highly recommend! During my first conversations with this agent our trip was hypothetical. He was extremely patient with all of my back and forth exchanges and hesitancy to make a decision. Once we decided to proceed, he made the pre-travel process very pleasant. He asked questions to get an idea of what we would like to see and do and modified the itinerary in the draft stages multiple times per my request. He also supplied the travel visa instructions, important details to know upon arrival and during the trip. He was very responsive any time I called or emailed with another question. Things I had to do to prepare for this trip: work with the travel agency on my itinerary, send a cashiers check to the company, obtain travel visa, consult with Passport Health on pre-travel needs, book my international roundtrip tickets, and pack!
The trip itself was a once in a lifetime experience that my daughter and I will cherish forever. We spent 15 days traveling China by high speed bullet train and inter country flights seeing at least 7 different cities. We were assigned a separate guide and driver for each city who physically waited for us inside each train station and airport. We learned the historical relevance of each city, spent time among the locals, visited historic landmarks, ate the regional cuisine, conversed with our guides, and brought home some amazing photos of each place.
By far the best part of booking this trip through this travel agent and his company was being on our very own private vacation. We were not on a bus with strangers - it was just me, my daughter, and our guide. There is no way this trip would have been as special any other way.
The most enjoyable and memorable part of the trip was being assigned with an individual guide, local to the city we were visiting. We were beyond impressed with the education and knowledge each person contributed to our experience. They taught us the historical significance of each city to China, goods and services that city was known for, recommended food selections we could not pass up, and more. Each person had their own sense of humor and way of connecting with their guests. It is evident they take pride in their profession and were quick to pass the benefits on to us.
Even though it caused for lower tourism, I would have traveled during a different time of year. This of course was personal choice and beyond the company's control, but it was extremely hot and humid. In hindsight I may have also chosen less gardens/museums to visit during my time in China because that seemed to be the most crowded and redundant parts of the trip.
