The tour was fantastic. We learned a lot from this tour. The guide, Sophia Liu, and the driver, Jason Chen, were very nice to us. We definitely enjoyed this trip.

I recommend this tour!

The tour in general was very good, but there are still points to be stopped with, such as 1-Breakfast arrangements in hotels are quite important 2-Since we were the only non Chinese speaking group (4 persons) in the group, we had little chance from the tour guide timewise, may be less than 15%, I complained to him about that
