  • Thanks for arranging our wonderful 28 day holiday to China in September. The blend of your arrangements and the few customised stops that we added with extra days, worked very well for us. All the agents did a good job and we thank them all.

  • Indeed we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to China and came back with very fond and delightful memories of the trip. We were very impressed with the quality of service provided by China Tour Guide. With military precision your English speaking Tour Guides and private car drivers were aavailable at each and every airport and cruise embark and disembark points, holding our names in their hands. They helped us at the airports by getting us boarding cards and at tourist sites by organising tickets etc.

Shanxi Tour

To travellers and culture fanatics, Shanxi is a rare paradise. The delicate area of 156, 000 square meters should collect lots of Buddha temples, grottoes, pagodas and villas of ancient commercial tycoons, receiving millions of overseas Buddhists and architecture fans per year. It's also home to the once-flourishing Shanxi Commercial Group (Jinshang in Chinese), one of the four famed commercial groups in modern China. Those who are interested in the history of Jinshang can get what they want in well-preserved Pingyao Ancient City. Cultivated by the magnificent landscape of Shanxi are plentiful celebrities, the most famous being Guan Gong, the top hero of the Chinese ancient novel Romance of Three Kingdoms. Guan Gong has been respected as the incarnation of loyalty and justice, military saint compared with civilian saint Confucius. So touring hometown of Guan Gong is the best way to understand how great worship Guan Gong enjoys for thousands of years in Chinese culture.
