Our holiday started where we were met by our guide who took us to Beijing railway to catch a bullet train to Baoding to stay with our son who works in Baoding. We stayed there for 3 nights then we went on the bullet train back to Beijing where we were met by Lewis our guide this is when the tour started. We were extremely happy with the guide who was very knowledgeable and looked after us very well. As we continued our tour all the guides who met us were very good.
Silvia was very approachable on wechat and we could get in touch with her if we were worried about anything. The itinerary she arranged for us was very good and we saw all the places we wanted to see. The voyage on the Yangtze River was great.
Quality on some of the vehicles and presentation of the drivers except for the car and driver in Beijing.
The best guide was Lewis, he was an extremely nice man and very knowledgeable on the history of China. He also took care of us as we had quite a lot of difficulties in climbing stairs, and there were a lot of stairs to climb. The driver in Beijing was very smart and was there on time to pick us up, the car too was very comfortable.
Make sure you are able to walk long distances and climb steps as there are many in China. You should be fairly fit for this holiday.
The Yangtze River was our highlite . The ship was very comfortable and we had alacart dinner. The shows were great and all the staff were very friendly.
