We booked a China tour with YourWayHoliday, and I must express my utmost satisfaction and admiration for the entire experience.

First and foremost, our tour guides were exceptional. Their deep knowledge of China's rich history and culture brought each destination to life in a profound way. From the awe-inspiring Great Wall of Beijing to the ancient Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, their insights and storytelling made these historical sites truly come alive. It was like stepping back in time and witnessing China's remarkable past firsthand.

Moreover, the professionalism of the tour company was truly commendable. The itinerary was well-crafted, striking a perfect balance between historical exploration and leisurely experiences. The logistics, from transportation to accommodations, were seamlessly organized, allowing us to focus on absorbing the beauty and significance of each location.

One highlight of the tour was the visit to Huangshan Mountain. Our guide's understanding of the mountain's cultural importance and natural wonders made the hike a memorable adventure. The breathtaking sunrise at Huangshan's summit was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Guilin's stunning landscapes, with its iconic karst peaks and tranquil Li River, left us in awe of China's natural beauty. The cruise along the Li River was a picturesque journey, and our guide's commentary enriched our understanding of this unique region.

Finally, Shanghai's juxtaposition of modernity and tradition was a perfect ending to the tour. The guide's insights into the city's transformation over the years were enlightening, and exploring the Bund and the historic Old Town was a true delight.

In summary, this 15-day China tour was an unforgettable journey through history, culture, and nature. It was made exceptional by our knowledgeable guides and the expert organization of the tour company. I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a profound and enriching exploration of China.

Really great experience! We love it. As a first-time visitor to China, I was quite apprehensive about the trip, not knowing where to start or how to plan such an extensive journey. That's where YourWayHoliday came to the rescue! Their professionalism and dedication to creating a customized itinerary for us were truly remarkable.

One of the standout features of this tour company was their prompt and informative responses to all our inquiries. Whenever we had a question or needed clarification, they were quick to provide us with detailed and helpful information, which immediately put our minds at ease.

The itinerary they designed for us was nothing short of spectacular. It included all the must-see attractions and hidden gems that I wouldn't have discovered on my own. The seamless flow of the trip allowed us to make the most of our 15 days in China, and we never felt rushed or overwhelmed.

What's more, the price they offered for this comprehensive tour was incredibly reasonable. We got to experience the rich culture, history, and natural beauty of China without breaking the bank. It was a great value for money.

But perhaps the most important aspect of this review is how much fun we had! Every day was filled with exciting adventures and unforgettable experiences. From exploring the Great Wall to savoring delicious Chinese cuisine, every moment was a delight. YourWayHoliday ensured that we got to immerse ourselves in the local culture, making our trip not only educational but also incredibly enjoyable. Highly recommend YourWayHoliday to anyone who want to visit China!!!

I had the most incredible 10-day journey in China thanks to TravelYourWay! From start to finish, this trip was an absolute dream, and it truly showcased the exceptional services provided by this travel company.

One of the things I loved most about this experience was the ability to customize my itinerary based on my preferences. It allowed me to explore China in a way that truly resonated with me. The itinerary covered three amazing destinations: Shanghai, Huangshan, and Hangzhou.

Firstly, our trip kicked off in the vibrant metropolis of Shanghai. From the dazzling lights of the Bund to the tranquil beauty of the Yuyuan Garden, every moment was a delight. TravelYourWay had curated the perfect mix of modernity and tradition in our activities, which made my time in Shanghai truly unforgettable.

Then, we ventured to the stunning Huangshan Mountain, a place that feels like a piece of heaven on Earth. The breathtaking landscapes, winding paths, and the famous "Sea of Clouds" left me in awe. Staying in a mountaintop hotel was an experience I'll cherish forever. The fact that TravelYourWay had arranged this made it even more special.

Our journey continued to Hangzhou, where we experienced the serene beauty of West Lake, explored ancient temples, and wandered through charming tea villages. The local cuisine was a highlight, and TravelYourWay ensured we sampled the best dishes Hangzhou had to offer.

One of the standout features of this trip was the high-speed train experience. It was not only efficient but also incredibly comfortable. TravelYourWay took care of all the logistics, making it hassle-free for us to enjoy the convenience and speed of China's high-speed rail network.

Lastly, I must commend our tour guide. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and truly passionate about sharing the culture and history of each place we visited. Their insights and anecdotes added a valuable layer to our journey.

In conclusion, TravelYourWay made my China adventure an absolute joy. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to explore these incredible destinations in a way that felt tailored just for me. From the high-speed trains to the top-notch guide, every aspect of this trip was exceptional. I returned home with a heart full of beautiful memories and a deep appreciation for the wonders of China. Thank you, TravelYourWay, for an unforgettable experience!

The mist-covered mountains of Huangshan were straight out of a painting, and the Li River in Guilin felt like sailing through a fairy tale. Our guide's enthusiasm and expertise added an extra layer of magic to these already stunning places.

But what truly touched my heart was the warmth and friendliness of our guide. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and cared for throughout the journey. Whether it was recommending the best local dishes or ensuring our comfort during long journeys, their attention to detail and genuine kindness made us feel like family.
