    4.0 - Good

    I loved the tour - it's a very quick trip through China's main tourist attractions and there really isn't time for rest but that was perfect given the limited time I had. There was a problem with one member of the group who didn't speak English and had fairly severe medical issues - which would have been fine if it didn't impact the rest of the group - but they did, and I don't believe he should ever have been let on the trip. G Adventures should at least be asking people if they have a decent grasp of English and are medically fit for the trip. Otherwise it was great - had a brilliant time, and if you want to see China in a limited amount of time then this is a great way to do it.

  • Vicki10th June 2018
    The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
