We really had a great trip. Excellent organization and excellent local guide.Overall Rating
Fantastic blend of sight seeing and culture. I got to see many things regular tourists don't get to see. The tour guide warned us of many potential dangers and made the experience a memorable one.Overall Rating
Excellent. This was my first time using G Adventures and it was exactly what I was hoping for--a way to explore a substantial part of a country without feeling like we were just getting on and off the same bus---local experiences and flexibility of the trip were great.Overall Rating

The China Express trip was amazing! While short in time it was so packed with sights and adventures that my daughter and I left China feeling that we had seen and done everything we could possibly have wished for. Spending my birthday hiking on the Great Wall of China was without a doubt the best! A suggestion would be to always travel with a copy of The Lonely Planet covering the areas you are to visit and read it before or during your trip....it has all sorts of great ideas of where to go for your free times as well as great street maps!Overall Rating
It was a good balance between scheduled activities and free time. The guide was there to give you tips on what you could do and see on your free time.Overall Rating
The tour was just GREAT. We travelled long distances in only 8 days and saw much of the country, but still it was never stressful. The group including our guide was sooo nice, I had a very good time with these open minded people!Overall Rating
The tour was well planned, well executed, Andy (our guide) kept us well informed, and the accommodation was good.Overall Rating
