We travelled in a group of 7 with 2 kids and we enjoyed our stay from the first to the last day. All our guides were well prepared, genuinely nice, organized and flexible enough to tailor daily activities accordingly to the group needs. Mark and Ken wen Small transportation glitches in Shangai were rapidly rectified and also the customer service always available on the phone (Elisa and Whitney). I definitely recommend China Highlights for any private tour in China and Asia! — alessiopec, from UK
