Having recently returned from the Tour of China I wish to express my appreciation for the way the tour was conducted. Everything went to plan and I found that the sight-seeing and place of interest, the hotel accommodation and travel plans were more than I expected. Truly a magnificent experience in more ways than one. The tour guides, especially Grace in Xian, were knowledgeable and looked after the group with a personal and friendly touch. It was also exceptional value for money. I will have no hesitation in recommending Travel Asia to my friends. Again my compliments to Travel Asia for a great experience, it certainly was one with memories that will stay with me forever. Well done.”Guest Testimonial
We have recently returned from our trip to China and what an absolutely fantastic trip it was. We would like to thank you all for the organisation in arranging our trip, tour, visa's, flights etc. And a special mention for our tour guides, they were all fantastic and went out of their way to make our holiday. We will definitely be investigating further Travel Asia in the future. Again many many thanks.”Guest Testimonial
We would like to express our appreciation of our well run China tour. Accommodation was certainly as promoted, clean, comfortable and staff most accommodating. Included meals throughout the tour were first rate, of good quality and courses just kept coming and coming, often more than our group could handle! Your tour guides are an absolute credit to your organisation. Nothing was too much trouble, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful to the extreme. The coaches we travelled in were always clean and comfortable and the drivers competent, courteous and always assisting our group on and off while boarding. Bottled water was always available for us. Although returning home somewhat exhausted from such a busy itinerary, we also brought back a lot of happy memories of this wonderful holiday, places visited and the people we met. Many Thanks to all concerned for such a well organised holiday.”Guest Testimonial
