    5.0 - Excellent

    We've just returned from our three week long China adventure with Intrepid and had the most amazing time! The places covered by the China Experience tour encompass China perfectly and give a fantastic balance between city/countryside incorporating all the major tourist destinations and attractions as well as more remote/off the beaten track locations. Our guide Jay made the holiday even more special, with the right balance of guided tours and information coupled with free time to explore and mix with the locals. Jay's organisation was faultless, making the trip completely stress free. China is an amazing place with the most friendly and welcoming people - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Intrepid and this trip to anyone. Thank you Intrepid and Jay for allowing us to experience the most amazing holiday ever.
