TA feedback

Rita had help plan a once in a lifetime tour for us last spring that we cancelled due to Covid. CH refunded our deposit in one day and wished us luck and good health. She then offered to send us masks since they were impossible to find in the US in April. 2 weeks later we received ~200 masks from CH with no charge! What a great, ethical and knowledgeable travel agent. Would rebook in a mi Ute if we knew it was safe. More...

Had a wonderful time with our tour guides Cactus and Jin. In the time of COVID it was a great relief to have help sorting through protocols for entering tourist sights. Excellent lunch options. The juggling and sugar candy art in the hutong was a real treat. Great thing about touring now - no crowds. Highly recommended tour operator for anyone traveling to Beijing. More...
