    4.0 - Good

    China Live Beijing to Shanghai (Topdeck) was an awesome experience. We had a pretty chill group that got along for the most part even though most people had varying interest. Our guide Sophie did everything in her power to make the tour as enjoyable and easy for our group. Included meals were all family style so they had to be a bit more inclusive for everyone and not as individualised. Did not realise credit cards would not have been as readily accepted as I was lead to believe pre is king to make sure you have enough Yuan or enough US/Euro/GBP to exchange when you get there. Also to convert currency at Bank of China at the airport you'll need a Bank of China account or your income tax number from your home country, otherwise you'll have to use to currency exchange services which do charge a significant commission per transaction. As of 2018 both Facebook and Google are blocked in China. WhatsApp will work but there are significant delays in sending or getting messages (sometimes days). If you're an android user just go ahead and get a VPN that works in China ahead of your trip. Otherwise you're pretty much be locked out of much of your phone's apps (I was surprise to realise just how much google access was needed to log into most of my apps), also get a none google web based e-mail account like msn or live and fwd your gmail to it. The tour otherwise was pretty good no complaints and would easily recommend it to anyone.

    5.0 - Excellent

    The tour is great value for money. Lots of food included which makes you feel like it is a foodie tour! Lots of amazing things to see and do. Action packed from start to finish. Loved every minute of it. The guide was utterly fantastic. Very friendly and helpful, it was a pleasure to spend 12 days under his expert guidance! Could not recommend highly enough
