Overall Satisfaction:
"Good trip."
I am truly impressed by this great trip. China is such a big country, combining different style cities. Beijing is the capital city along with hundreds years of history, and there are lots of ancient palaces and temples. Xi’an is also a great city, and I really appreciate having this chance paying a visit there. Our last stop is Shanghai, a modern city where lots of shopping malls and great pubs there. I should say, China Travel Depot is a great travel agency. Thanks to their thoughtful arrangement, I had a great time here. I like every meal provided by the hotel. And it is very adorable to have such a nice guide.

"amazing trip"
Dear Carol, Finally we home and getting back to normal with the time change. We wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in China. Your company was fabulous in every way. Quick to respond to questions and concerns we had before we left and once in China, comforting to know that you had provided excellent guides/drivers and accommodations. All of the guides were very helpful, with good English skills and excellent knowledge about sites, history and people. They were not only professional guides, but really kind people as well, creative and fun to be around. All of them were very attentive with our needs and with excellent insight regarding any question we could have. As to meals, all of them are satisfying! Transfer Efforts were beyond my expectations! The drivers were also very helpful and pleasant while being excellent, safe drivers. My wife and I appreciated your selection of all the hotels. Rubik's Cube All of them were in good location and breakfast was outstanding with so many selections. I feel that China Travel Depot is a company that I can trust. They are not just interested in earning our money but did make a genuine effort to ensure that we enjoy our tour. I will be leading another group to China in two years’ time. I shall gladly have China Travel Depot be our tour operator again on that occasion. Best Regards, Henry Smith, Australia

Tripe departure date
Good afternoon, I was wondering if you have a 8 Days Golden Route of China departing around the 12th or 13th of July? I am attending a conference in Beijing and would appreciate seeing more of China. If you have something similar a little longer or shorter then this would work out well. Peter
