Teacher was completely unorganized and made me have second thoughts about the trip.

China was an amazing experience. Our tour director, john, clearly knew what he was doing and made the whole thing such a good time. Would reccomend to everyone.

Our main tour Guide was marvelous. Many of the main sites and events we went to were spectacular and educational. The chance to visit so many cities in one go was useful in itself, although it certainly sunk a lot of time into travel over actually doing things. I did come to the conclusion that I would not travel in a group like this again. I believe that I could sit down with a travel agent and come up with a better trip for less money. The group dynamic gives almost no flexibility. Time in any one place was almost always a rush. Also, the stop almost every single day to Shop over and over and over again looking at the same stuff over and over and over again made us feel like the point of the trip was for us to help with the country's GDP! Finally, hotels were over-all disappointing.

My son can’t stop talking about his trip to China. Not only about all the amazing things he saw and learned, but also about the tour guides and accommodations EF provided. And I’d like to give a shout-out for the above and beyond service—my son lost his cell phone on a bus tour in Beijing. His tour guide worked so hard to help locate the phone and have it delivered to my son in Shanghai! Unbelievable!

What a great time!
I really loved this trip. I finally traveled to a country that I have been studying for a while. It was really organized and there were always something to do. Even built in free time was great. I loved the Great Wall of China and the Terra Cotta Soldiers. The food was authentic, but had flavors I was not used to. I would like to see more of an American full breakfast.
On the down side one Hotel was not as nice as the others, the rooms were not clean and our guide had the hotel changed.

I was happy to finally go to China as an adult.
There was too much travel time with not enough visit time at the the various areas we visited. I always felt rushed after so much time in the bus. We had four or five in country flights we were days we did virtually nothing.
So much seemed around eating which were never anything special. Same menu at each meal.
Tour guide did a good job but struggled with plans to plan activities when we were unable to get to where we wanted to go or (because of flooding) were forced to change hotels.
I would not do this tour again.

Outstanding Tour of China!
Our trip was simply excellent. Our Tour Director in China could not have been any more informative, hospitable, or adaptable to our needs and interests as a group.

Our tour director was amazing. He was knowledgeable, patient and creative in the way he handled our tour. Every day included worthwhile information and visits to historical sites. We loved it all!

Comprehensive, fun, varied, well organized
My son's experience on the trip to China was time and money well spent. My son is one who can be critical, but he did not have one negative word to say about his experience. The number of places they had seen, the variety of the attractions and the activities, the accommodations, the guides- all were great.
