Very well planned trip and we liked the guides in each city. Our guide in Beijing was our favorite and we really enjoyed the guide in Xi'an too. There was always someone waiting for us at each destination and the transportation/drivers also did a good job. We got to see everything we had hoped to - the Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors, the high speed train, rickshaw ride, Forbidden City, CIty Wall in Xi'an, the skyline in Shanghai, Peking duck meal in Beijing (we actually had 2), the floating restaurant in Hong Kong, the harbor in Hong Kong and more. We also got to experience pandas in Hong Kong at the amusement park on our free day, the Chinese calligraphy class, dancing with people in the French Park in Shanghai, and the meeting with the Cricket Master in Beijing was an unexpected trip highlight.
The head of the tour company also gave us a very nice personalized gift of a stamp in Chinese of each of our names - the same stamps artists and collectors put on the art in China. We also had our guide help us buy a full sized Terra Cotta Warrior for our garden that is going to be shipped in September.
The guides gave us great information on the life of Chinese citizens as well. The hotels were great in that they were very upscale and well located for our day to day adventures. I loved having a free day in each city as well - made the pacing of the trip better than in the past where we never had a down day that allowed us to sleep in a little and experience the city on our own terms.
I was very very happy with the service overall.
I listed many of them above.
Probably not travel when it was so hot but other than that, no complaints. I would do the trip in April or September.
