Overall Satisfaction:
I just came back from Shanghai. During these nine days, the whole trip was great except bad weather and huge amount of people. The first four days in Beijing were fabulous. The Forbidden City was so huge and great. I liked the Great Wall the most. I felt like I became Haohan from the time I step onto the Great Wall. It’s a bit cold when we were on Yangtze River, but the sights were so excellent. Rain kept dropping when we were in Shanghai. If I have another chance to China, I won’t hesitate to go there again!

Overall Satisfaction:
The overall service was well arranged. Activities were interesting and the sights were fabulous. Beijing and Shanghai were both great cities in China. They are highly developed in modern style, with tradition architectures well protected right in the city. You guys now have paid great attention in protecting ancient culture. The natural sights on Yangtze River also great, with mountains hidden in the sky…. This trip was great and I would recommend your China Travel Depot to my friends.

Overall Satisfaction:
I wanna give my sincere thank to you ChinaTravelDepot. Your perfect service impressed my husband and me a great deal. My husband hurt his ankle when we were in Forbidden City, and your guide, a Miss Liu practically sent him to a nearby hospital. Sorry to keep other tourists waiting. Please pass my thank to this Miss Liu. Your organization is trustful!
