Our family loved this 6 days antique China tour arranged by China Travel Depot. Overall, I thought China Travel Depot was an excellent company. We very much appreciated all the emails back and forth till every detail was taken care of. Our guide was fantastic. She answered all our questions and went out of her way to be helpful. She was lovely to the children, spoke very good English and had lots of local knowledge. Our children is missing her badly now. Cars were clean and the drivers were very friendly. We had a very good experience with your tour company from our first contact all the way to the end of the tour. We would highly recommend your tour company to anyone looking for a professional and friendly company.

I am happy to say that the tour is a good choice with a quite reasonable price. It is not my first time to choose China Travel Depot. This time my trip started in Beijing, the capital of China. I visited many places full of Chinese history, such as the Forbidden City, Summer Palace and the Great Wall. All of the drivers did a great job of driving us where we needed to go and were helpful with our luggage. I should express my thanks to the tour guides who were attentive and great in their service. They gave us a lot detailed information and were ready to answer all our questions. Their English was marvelous. I would like to introduce this tour to everyone.
