    A fast paced tour for sure. A great way to experience Chinese people, culture, history and many awesome attractions. On the negative side - a bit too much walking with luggage, on/off public transport for me. Overall experience was still amazing... Show more

    I had a fantastic time with G Adventures but I would explain that at times the tour felt rushed despite seeing the main sites.

    G ensures you get to experience all of the 'must-see' parts of any trip but I feel they make a real effort to provide more of a genuine experience of the place and culture

    I loved the tour and we got to see the main cities in china that we wanted to see. The tour guide was friendly and made sure that everyone got the opportunity to see what they wanted.
