It was a fun tour! it was exhausting because a lot was covered, but if you are up for it, the company itself is very good. The bus was decent and very clean. They were very punctual and they covered everything they promised to! Our tour guide, nick, was awesome! very knowledgeable and kept tabs on everyone. The accommodation was better than I expected. I would definitely recommend this company!

Yes would really recommend it.. if u want peace of mind and no headaches of searching, rental cars, 4 star rated hotels and standing in long queues of tickets etc. they will make you visit most of the famous places and activities of a city, book really nice clean m comfy hotels for you, provide you with entry tickets in the bus itself. Will provide you with sufficient time for lunch n dinners. Breakfasts are not included in the hotels they us stay so be prepared for them. Unless you are a non vegetarian be prepared with good amounts of snacks m food as well in the trip. The restaurants they provide buffets don't have much vegetarian options. Rest is great. We made a lot of Indian friends on the tour. We are vegetarian Indians so suggesting to take a lot of ready made food from Indian stores with you. Additionally you also get to know great historic facts on way by the tour guide. Our guide Ms. Yo-yo did a great job, she is really nice person too with nice knowledge about her job.

We took East Coast tour in April month. Everything was organized properly and tour guide Tana is knowledgeable, given lot of good information about the places, helps the tour passengers for any special needs and she able to communicate well in English and Chinese languages. Timing was well maintained. Overall we had great experience and thanks to tour group, Guide Tana, driver and Taketours portal for providing us this tour. In our tour group, people were between the ages (6 to 75) and every one had good time with out any issues. We surely recommend this tour operators.

The tour was great. It was worth every dollar. This tour is most suitable for Chinese people because 95% of people on it are from China. The Chinese tour guides speak a bit of English but mostly Chinese. The bus was comfortable with nice Air Conditioner. But I would advise to bring a small pillow and stuff that makes travelling on the bus from 5 to 10 hours more comfortable. The hotels were very good and very clean (I got standard hotels package). There were many amazing attractions to see on this tour but you had to pay extra for most of them. Everything is very expensive, like food and water (4$ or 5$ for small bottle). If I will go on the similar tour again, I will definitely bring a few bottles of water and some snacks for breakfast, like porridge with me. There were not many healthy options at places that we stopped at - mostly: Chinese, McDonalds, pizza or hot dogs¦ It is also important to have sunscreen, comfortable footwear, clean clothes for each day and a good camera of an Ipad to take many, many pictures!!!

The tour itself was very hectic but loads to do and see,beware your up early in the morning 6 am usually without breakfast,and back in hotel at 9 or 10 pm. 95% of the group are Chinese as was the tour guide and driver.Hotels are very basic but clean. Food is generally eat as you go ,never time for a decent meal. .Attractions were excellent but rushed .Tour guide on the whole was good but was more biased towards the Chinese , was angry at the end of the tour when we were just dumped off the coach in a place we were not familiar with and the tour guide was very unhelpful. In short ,great tour,very tiring ,many hours travelling in a coach,too many attractions crammed into too few a days !!!!!
