Hi Christina-

I plan on bringing my husband back to China someday.  When I do I'll most definitely use you guys to plan our trip.  It was seemless form begining to end.  Below is my review and attached are a few pictures throughout our trip.

Working with Christina from Absolute China Tours to plan this trip was a wonderful experience!  She was beyond helpful with suggestions and was always prompted in her response.  We spent 2 months going back and forth to customize our tour.  Once in China the trip went smoothly and all of our guides and drivers were wonderful, knowledgable, and flexable with our time.  Christina also checked in along the way to make sure everything was going well.  I would not only highly recommend Absolute China Tours and Christina for anyone planning a trip to China but when I come back to China with my husband I will be using them again!




Tiffany, Margaret, Joy

Christina at absolute china tours was helpful right from the beginning. We exchanged numerous emails to plan our perfect and complicated trip.
Throughout the trip, she was available and dealt with issues appropriately and timely.
We had a great time and it wouldn't have been the same without the help!
The tour guides in each city were very well informed and we loved hearing just the right amount of history and interesting facts.
We would like to spend more time in China next time!

Dear Eric,

We are sorry it has taken us some time since our return from China to write to express our sincere appreciation for the outstanding trip you arranged for our family.  For us, our daughter and her husband and our four grandsons, it was an experience of a lifetime.  The boys are very eager to explore China some more and ask when they can go back!  They absolutely loved every minute of their experience.  Your tireless efforts on our behalf made this trip a great success and a memorable experience for all of us.

We asked a great deal of you as our tour planner.   We had specific sights of both a tourist and family nature that we wanted to see that were most likely not the usual requests from your clients.  You were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly over many months of planning to make it all work out for us.    You provided valuable information and suggestions, answered our many, many questions promptly,  made several itinerary changes for us and even provided an hourly itinerary at our request to help pace the trip for the children.  

We appreciate your arranging for outstanding guides and drivers in each city.  Each guide -- Louise in Beijing, Ying in Xian, Peter in Chongqing, Leo and Will in Hangzhou and Ryan in Shanghai -- had excellent English skills and, importantly, were very good and patient with the children.  They were all cheerful, knowlegeable and very nice. Some of these guides had to help us with some unusual requests.  Leo, Will and our driver worked hard to find a laundry and a florist for us in Hangzhou.   In Chongqing, Peter helped us find some rather out of the way family sites.  All of the drivers were very friendly.

The vehicles you provided in each city were clean, comfortable and air-conditioned.  The hotels were excellent and the staffs were especially thoughtful in providing services related to the children.

All in all, the trip you arranged was perfect, and we thank you most sincerely.

We are happy that we were able to meet you during our stay in Hangzhou,  and we hope we will have an opportunity to see you again.

Yours sincerely,

Tse-shyang and Belinda Chen

Hi Zoe,

First of all we would like to thank you for planning such a wonderful trip. It has been to date one of our best adventures and we certainly couldn't have done it without you, the guides and drivers.

Jin, Cherry and Evelyn were amazing. They were professional, caring, patient, knowledgeable and obviously very proud of their country. The drivers were also fantastic, always handing out bottles of water for us to make sure we didn't dehydrate.

This was by far one of our best holidays and I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone else. Once again thank you. Our experience far outweighed our expectations.

Warm regards,
Jeff, Kirsty, Jemma and Lexi

Hi Zoe,

You were wondeerful and flexible to work with in the planning stage. Our hotels were wonderful and some of our guides were terrific and knew the history and culture of their respective sites namely, Dhorma in Lhasa, Peter who hiked with us on the Great Wall, and Eric who showed us Hong Kong. All guides were responsive to our needs, were prompt and showed us great local restaurants. Overall the trip was excellent. Thank you

The most enjoyable or memorable parts of my trip: The Great Wall, all of Lhasa,the cooking class in Beijing (could have been cut by one hour), our lunches and breakfasts in our mostly sumptious hotels, walking the Bund, watertown trip, Forbidden City and Tian'anman Square, temples, Victoria Peak- so many highlights.

If we take the trip again, what would we do differently: Ask for guides who were more knowledgeable about history. Many were Englsih majors but a few didn't know their history. We knew more than they did. Shorten the cooking class to 4 hours. It was a highlight of our trip though so if 5 is what it needs to be, so be it.
