    Although I had an amazing time in China, I found the tour lacking in every way, especially for the high price you pay. Last year I went to Vietnam and Cambodia with G Adventures, which was amazing and I would recommend this trip to everyone. This can’t be said of my trip to China. The tour guide (CEO) provided very little information about the towns or the sights we were seeing. Opposed to my trip last year, we did not have any local guides in China. I felt that we were often dropped off at a certain location and were left to ourselves to figure everything out. Also, I felt like there was very little to see in the first few cities we were visiting. And when we got to the main attractions (Xi'an an Beijing) we got too little time. As I said before, the activities that were included were rushed and without a lot of information. The optional activities were always ridiculously expensive, especially the transport costs. We didn't get any maps of the cities we visited (The CEO in Vietnam and Cambodia printed out a map for us in every city) and we got little information as to what we could visit. I am well aware that the standard in China is lower than in Europe, but most of the hotels were just terrible. We often stayed in run-down hotels, where the floor has never seemed to be cleaned and the shower was full of mold. Also, the breakfast that was included (food is only included a few times) was low-grade. They never had enough food because our group always reached for the western style breakfast. Only the breakfast in Xi'an and Beijing was good. The overall transport was good. The flights we took were short, the high-speed train was extremely comfortable and even the bus we took wasn't all that bad. However, the overnight train that we took in China is something I wish to never ever ever ever do in my entire life again. I have no clue what the person who organized the tour was thinking. The day before we were to see one of the highlights of China (the forbidden city) we took this overnight train that lasted 6 hours. By the time all the lights were out and the other passengers were somewhat quiet, we only got 4 hours sleep left. As a result, we were like zombies the day after and were not quite in the right shape to fully enjoy the forbidden city. Moreover; the overnight train had zero comfort. It had hard beds and we slept surrounded by strangers (they did not even put our beds together), also men and women were not separated. This resulted to me sleeping across the isle of a fat Chinese guy, snoring all "night". Lastly, we had this incident in Chengdu where we arrived late in the evening at the train station to realize our train had been cancelled due to the heavy rains and such. We waited several hours under the canopy of the train station (because we couldn't get in), literally standing in the rain, while our CEO was trying to reach his manager for a solution. I find it extremely odd that nobody was following up our trip and that they did not see this coming or had a plan B. After a while they booked us a hotel and a flight for the day after without consulting us or asking for our consent. They then demanded us to pay for everything, which we didn't do of course. The plane they booked was scheduled for the day after was only around 19 o' clock, because of that we didn't have any time to see Xi'an. We only had time to see the terracotta warriors. Luckily, after we refused to pay for the extra night and plane, they agreed the following morning to cover these costs. I am very grateful for that but am still disappointed in the lack of professionalism on their side I don’t think I will ever travel with G adventures again. I had extremely good experiences in Vietnam and Cambodia, but this trip to China was very disappointing and way too expensive for what was included.
