My mom and I had a real great time in this tour. We were the people who never knew to speak Chinese, but most of the others in the tour at least understood Chinese. Luckily as informed by this tour operator, the tour guide spoke good English and so we never experienced any problem.  I recommend this tour as they cover the best places of visit and do not rush over. They are responsible and reach on time to all the schedules, be it a visit or a ride on the helicopter or a boat cruise. I give 5 stars.

I took this tour recenty. Had amazing time and visited so many places in such a short time.  I felt there must be a little more time as each day it was like I was getting really exhausted, but others in the tour group looked active. Must be, I must start getting more active. The accomodation was good, the hotels offered great service, the tour guide was perfect and transportation superb. The driver drove with all patience and our tour guide did a fabulous job and in fact, I was with him most of the time. There is everything to go on this tour.
