I took the 5 day tour with my friend. It was really well planned and organized. The tour guide, Jojo, was really good and explained the details really well. Hotels are good and worth the money spent. Tour starts early around 6:30AM daily so it's a bit hectic, but you are able to cover most of the attractions without much queue or waiting time. Overall, it was a really good experience and worth the money spent.

It was really well organized. The hotels provided were good, neat, clean, and worth for the money we paid. Mr. Jason drove very safely and tour guides Mr. Shaon and Mr. Avin explained about the history and things well. They ensured we visited all places as per schedule and also ensured we did not miss visiting any places on their schedule. Though we were bit tired by the end, the whole package was worth the money we paid and we are very satisfied.

I got this tour for my parents as I was not able to join them for the tour and I couldn't find any other tour during that time.I had several apprehensions as tour guide was chinese dominated but it turned out to be a very well managed tour.No waiting and 5 star hotel accommodation even though i booked standard hotel.Their tour guide Angel was really helpful and my parents enjoyed the tour.It was a bit hectic getting up early to leave everyday at 7.00AM but it worth it.Good value for money.

Posted by: Mary on 2013-05-25

The tour was exactly what we wanted as far as what we saw. The hotels were very good and transportation in the big cities better than I had expected. The tour guides were well informed but my only complaint is that the guides spoke excessively more Chinese than English in describing or explaining things. I felt that I wasn't being told all that I should be. I understand that there were more Chinese speakers than English but even so, there should have been equal time in each language and preferably English first. This would be the only thing that I would criticize on the tour.

I booked this trip for my parents in law (Age 62,54) and they found it good. The tour covers all the places mentioned in the website. Its slightly hectic as the tour starts from 6:00 AM and the time given to see each place would be limited. The tour guide was good. he was explaining in both Chinese (detailed) and English (Summary). Their tours were conducted by L&L tours and they seems to be big. Hotels provided were fine. They were asked to pay the tip($6/head) only at the end of the trip and the driver helped people to offload/load bags into the bus. The seating arrangement was rotated on a daily basis. Visits to all the crowded places were made early in the morning to avoid standing in queue. (They faced no queue for Empire state bldg/Niagara Maid of the Mist) . Overall its good for people who want to cover many places in less time and money and dont mind having 5 hectic days.

It was a great tour. This is the second time I have taken the same tour with different family members. TakeTours had made a lot of improvements and this time, the tour was more enjoyable than before. Adequate time was given for meals and also to look around the attractions. Will definitely recommend.
