    I'd never travelled with G Adventures before this trip, but never again. Our guide Ella was useless. I wouldn't even call her a guide. Kept losing us and provided minimal info on sites. Besides that, the areas we visited were great for the space of time. Accomodation was good. I'm still waiting on G Adventures to provide me a feedback form. I've asked twice this week to no avail. Will only use Intrepid for future travel

    This is a relatively new tour, hence there are not many reviews for it yet. The overall experience in the tour was very positive and the main guide Charles Yang was very professional and new his job very well. The tour has a lot of optional extras which will add to the cost as will the food which is mainly not included, this is clearly said in the itinery. Some of the accommodation is very basic but most is OK. The exception being a hotel in Yangshuo which ran a scam on 4 members of the tour group to falsely retain deposits. The hotel name was the 'Explorer' guesthouse and if you are interested in this trip it is worth seeing if G adventures still uses this place. If they are you should be careful! All things considered I would recommend this trip. The highlights were the trekking on the Great wall and also the trekking at the Longji rice terraces and cycling trip at Yangshuo. It is a good way to introduce China so long as you have a decent level of fitness to make the most of it.
