The travel agency was very good with making all the arrangements as well as hotel and flights and they were very responsive to our inquiries. The guides spoke English well enough to give us the tourist information. But 3 of our 5 guides did not speak Englsish well enough to unrest and our questions well so all we were able to get from them was a "canned speech".
Our first guide also was extremely pushy about sending us to places outside our itinerary without telling us we would be pushed hard to spend money. For example she asked if we wanted to go see the Chinese herbal medicine institute and said it was free. However there was a doctor that met with us,diagnosed both my husband and my medical problems (at least accprd My to him -w are both physics as) and then pushed for each of us to buy Chinese herbs that would cure all our pr Blend for 250 US dollars a piece. While I expect that type of tactics I did not expect it from the tour guide to direct to us to places like that. She did the same thing in the evening for a performance costing 60 dollars per person. Even after we told her we were too tired to go and had not yet bought tickets she said her reputation was on the line and we had to go. Did not make us feel like she had our interests at heart. Perhaps these places were paying her a fee to bring us there....
The sites were interesting. We had wonderful guides
1. Would not have guides who push us to go to places where they make us spend money 2. Would have guides who speak the language well enough to answer our questions
