        Best highlights of Beautiful China❤️
        Me n my friend booked this private tour of 9 days. We had no good idea on what to expect, although looking back, the description said it all. Our private driver picked us up with his car from airport to hotel in the morning after our arrival and from that moment the adventure began. We have seen so many things during the 9 days, visited so many places. Most nights we slept in authentic hotels, one more beautiful than the other and of course there was something to criticize everywhere, but overall and without exception they were beautiful and special. We received a warm welcome everywhere with our super knowledgeable guides (Angela, Noble and Caroline )who made our trip extra special. They were really passionate about China and intelligent to highlight the history and share with us with such excitement. Hope the company has recognised their contribution as i feel they went all out to serve their customers that we are so thankful for. We also spent many hours in the car driving through changing sceneries, but there was so much to see that it never got boring. The Great wall and terra cotta warrior was a special and best highlights! Only hiccup was the receiving us from the train station where we got lost abit but was quickly resolved by the agent Sophia. In our opinion, this could have been solved with a more detailed emailed as we were in a huge train station. But nevertheless, huge shout out to our tour agent Sophia who was extremely professional and dedicated in her line of work which i deeply appreciate. Thank you Sophia! We felt safe in the hands of all drivers as they were highly skilled drivers and nice people. All together we had a wonderful journey, above expectations and now, weeks later, we are still processing all the impressions. It was a really good trip, highly recommend it. In fact I have passed your contact to a few of my friends too. Thank you once again for your exceptional service and I am looking forward to booking more trips with your company in the future to explore more of the beautiful different cities of China😍❤️🫱🏾‍🫲🏾👏🏾

        Poor overall experience with China Xian/ Joy Travel
        Went with 2 other friends on a 7 day Northern Xinjiang tour with the addition of another 1 day private tour to Turpan. The administration was terrible to begin with as the agency gave us the wrong information when making payment, causing us to have a failed payment once before a successful payment after. There was a loss incurred due to the currency difference but the agency insisted that they are not responsible for that mistake and blamed it on us for not asking them properly. On the actual trip, we reached Urumqi early in the morning due to our transportation at around 7am, however the agency got a separate driver to pick us up and just dropped us in the middle of the city and left us alone wandering cluelessly and helplessly at a park with no one to direct us on what to expect or at the least, what to do. The agency told us the tour guide would make arrangement with us but it was only until about 3pm when we finally got into contact with the tour guide and picked us up to join the rest of the group. This was so unprofessional, leaving tourists in the middle of the city without anyone directions and just told us to accommodate ourselves till the others arrive? Such hospitality is a really big disappointment. The package we took mentioned that the tour guide would be a good English speaking tour guide, yet he couldn't convey his instructions and explanations properly to us throughout the entire trip, and often we have to help translate the instructions among ourselves to our non Chinese speaking friends in the group. He also did not offer any introductions to the places of interests when we visited and we had to ask the locals or read the description given at the place to understand more of the places. If this is so then what is the point of the tour guide? Even the driver who was accompanying us knew more than him and was even heard giving him suggestions on the itenary. It was only the last day at Turpan when there was a new tour guide things start to be better. 10 minutes in to the start of the private tour she gave us a comprehensive introduction of Turpan and Xinjiang and helped translate most of the descriptions along the way. Overall despite the better experience on the last day, Xinjiang is an amazing place and I wished it could have been better if only the administration have been more forthcoming in owning up mistakes and taking responsibilities. To be fair, we heard better past experiences from some of the other tourists in the group but we would probably not go back to the agency because we paid quite a huge sum for the trip and ought to have better hospitality for that.

        Great Wall of China, Jade factory, Ming tomb
        As I got sick on Monday, the agency was kind and understanding so they rescheduled my tour on Tuesday, which turned into a private instead of a group tour. I have spent the whole day visiting the Great Wall of China at Badaling, Jade factory, one of the Ming tombs (the most preserved one) and tea demonstration. The guide, Michael, was a very friendly, kind and informative man and it was a pleasure to spend a day with him. I highly recommend this travel agency!

        Excellent Day and Tour
        Had a great day at the Huashan Mountains with China Xian Tours. They made what could be a complicated day very easy. We drove there in a new comfortable air-conditioned van with a great driver. Our guide, Noble, spoke great English and was really pleasant and guided us around the various mountain peaks with ease. Given the large tourist crowds this was very helpful. The mountains are beautiful and we had a great time and workout. I highly recommend using China Xian Tours if you want a hassle free great day in the Huashan Mountains

        Good organized trip in China
        We just visit Guizhou with China Xian Tour. Sophia, my consultant is the best in organize trip for us. Actually, she had done some other trips for us like Gansu and Silk Road. Very reliable. I always happy and no worry when she handled my trips in China even with big group. This Guizhou trip is over my expectation with Jacky.

        Outstanding Xian tour!
        We had an excellent private tour led by Noble visiting the most important sites in Xian. He was very professional and knowledgeable which made for an amazing couple of days in Xian. We would highly recommend Noble if you are considering a tour.

        A professional and efficient guide makes the difference in Xian
        Noble Liu, our local guide has made a difference in our trips. We had visited Terracotta and Han Yangling in one day through a request to the platform as I have done it years back. Imagine our surprise that the following night performance (Eternal Sorrow which is a wonderful outdoor performance set against the mountains) which we booked separately will have Noble again as our guide. We also managed to squeezed in Tuo Ling Legend (recommended by Noble) which showcase the Silk Road (with live camels, water and rotating seats). Noble is professional, very knowledgeable about history and passionate about his job. He is punctual and goes the extra mile for his clients. We would not hesitate to recommend Noble Liu if you need a professional and efficient guide that goes the extra mile. Thank you Noble.

        5 Day Tailored Tour of Shinaghai, Suzhou, Zhujiajiang and Hangzhou
        We actually did a tailored 5 day tour including trips out to Suzhou, Zhujiajiang water town and Hangzhou. Our guide for 4 days in Shanghai, Suzhou and Zhujiajiao was Maria. She was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her love of history and culture. She also helped us with any other advise or assistance we needed. For our day in Hangzhou we had Lulu as a guide and she was also fantastic.

        2024 Wondeful Holiday at XIan and Chengdu, China
        An annual holiday with my wife in every April, this year, we want to go to see Xian and Chengdu in China. Find couple of tour operators in China from Google. Finally have Kelly from Joy Travel to custom make our 10 days holiday. The package include a car with driver, hotels, high speed train tickets and all attractions ticket. At start, I am a bit worried about what I will experience on this trip. As this is the first time that I deal with this tour operator. Hotels at all locations are good, drivers are courteous and professional. All attractions tickets are brought as plan. I have a perfect holiday with my wife. We will ask Joy Travel to arrange our trip to China on next year.

        Xian: a deep pot of China’s valuable history.
        Xian: what a magical place!!!! So full of history and charming lights. I was a solo traveler who joined a small guided tour to the following attractions: TerraCotta Warriors, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Xi’an Great Wall, Muslim quarter/ snack street, Drum/Bell Tower, Xi’an Museum and Everbright City. You would think it’s not possible to do so many things in 3days but if you have an expert guide like hours, you can do this and more!!!! Noble was our guide and what an amazing guide he is. Speaks English really well (self-taught), enthusiastic & passionate about the history of his town, and has great people skills. He was such a wealth of knowledge and he tells the stories with so much pride in his voice, that you can’t help but fall in love with Xi’an and the history of the country in general. He suggested a show that tells the history of the beginning of the Silk Road & boy were we in for a treat!!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾What a spectacular show, with real camels and real wolf dogs. Do yourself a favor and ask your guide about this hour long show. The tickets are a bit steep but oh so worth it!!!! It’s in Chinese but there‘a a screen that has English translation. Our guide also took us to a restaurant that’s famous for local cuisine and everything we tried on the menu, we like. The dinner was followed by a walk in Everbright City which was breathtaking!!!! 😍🥰😍 One can’t get over the beauty of those lights. Every place we went to came with great history lessons from Noble that one would definitely not get from the internet, no matter how much you Google. Highlights of the tour: meeting the farmer who discovered the Terra-cotta Warriors, what an honor!, The start of The Silk Road show, Terra-Cotta Warriors, seeing that many real artifacts in Xi’an Museum & of course, Everbright City. I even went back to Everbright City during the day. Lowlights of the tour: traffic. 😭😭😭 Do not make the mistake (like we did) of booking this tour during peak season. To say it was busy would be an understatement!!!!! Though our guide knew all the back alleys and meandered us expertly, there was no way of avoiding traffic unfortunately. We missed going to the big Pagoda on the scheduled day coz of it, but we fitted it on the next day. 2. It rained so much on our last day. 😭😭😭 And most of our activities were outside. Both of these were out of control for our guide and noone’s fault really so we understood but our guide also made the rainy day enjoyable. I’d give my guide (Noble Liu) a 15/10 for his knowledge and people’s skills. The trip itself is a 12/10. 😍😍😍 If you’re a history geek and you haven’t been to Xi’an, you are missing out!!!!

        Great adventures in Zhangjiajie!
        Ashley was super accommodatng, funny, adventurous, and engaging. She helped us find many great activities beyond the basic package to meet our thrill seeking and entertainment needs. She has a delightful personality and made our experience really memorable. Be sure to ask about evening shows, and the bungee jumping and cliff climbing. She faced her fears and took photos of us on the side of the cliff. She's a brave superstar!
