We're just home from a most enjoyable holiday, partly arranged via China Highlights. The drivers who met us at various locations were on time and very pleasant, the one in Guilin particularly. The tours were great, small numbers made for good interaction, the Guides were fab - Rico in Beijing, Phoebe in Xi'An and Rosy in Guilin - all had excellent English and were very obliging, happy to help in any way they could. In the office Nico answered emails night and day (not sure when he sleeps!) and a couple of minor problems were sorted out speedily and with ease, nothing was a problem. We'd love to go back to China one day and would have no hesitation in using China Highlights again. Thank you

The guide in Yangshuo was rude and unpolite, and also push us to shop at the local store. Never use China Highlights again!

What Makes Them Stand Out?
