Fantastic - this tour covered so much in a short time. We were quite apprehensive after our initial planning of the holiday. The visa requirements changed & the London office of Wendy Woo gave us conflicting advice. We had nothing to worry about once we left Heathrow. From the moment our National Guide, Ivan met us at Beijing airport we didn't have to worry about anything as he faultlessly saw to our party's every need. He worked very very hard to give us all the most wonderful holiday in his country. We could not have done it without him! We enjoyed an early morning visit to the Great Wall -,something we shall never forget, a morning at the Terracotta Warriors museum, 2 Panda conservation centres plus 4 evening shows. The local guides were also informative with walking tours of several towns, palaces & parks. The food was plentiful and experienced in many differing restaurants giving us a taste of the local cuisine. Our plane journeys were well organised as was our trip on the bullet train - all thanks to Ivan who must have worked tirelessly behind the scenes. We had a good mix of people on the tour & Ivan really was our guide in a million. He was great!
