Great China Trip

Great trip from the start. China Eastern Airline treats its customers better than a lot of U.S. airlines. Seats had enough room, 3 sufficient meals were served on the 15 hour flight. Our guide, Li Bo, was absolutely exceptional from start to finish of the tour. The hotels were all 5 star. The sites along the trip were all unbelievable, even without the optional tours. We had enough free time to do the little extra things that we wanted to do. The local guide were all very good, friendly and knowledgeable. China surprised us with its absolute beauty, size, opulence of the tourist sites. Even the factories that were visited proved to be eye opening and not just tourist traps. The trip left us extremely happy that we had taken it and was an absolute bargain.

Fabulous China trip

On October 13, 2016, we left for our trip to China & the Yangtze River Cruise.
27 people who couldn't wait to meet each other and most of all our tour guide, Mark Ma. To say that he's the best would be an understatement. Our trip was fabulous from the moment we met him til we boarded the plane, homeward bound. His knowledge of China is vast and his English is perfect. This is my 3rd trip with Smart Tours and I love traveling with them. The price is unbeatable for what we always get. From hotels, to transportation, tours and food Smart Tours can't be beat. The trip is physically demanding but the upside is I lost 6 pounds from so much walking. I can't wait for my next trip. Thanks!!

Great but exhausting tour

We hit the road running, flight from LA to Shanghai...our guide Mark was waiting for us and we set off for the hotel. Mark Ma spent the entire time with us. For most of us that have travelled a lot, we all felt he was one of the best ever. He was patient, intelligent, knowledeable, and informative. There were 26 in our group of varying ages and abilities. At the end of the day, we saw so much and were ready for bed at night. There is so much to see, but the crowds of people for us proved very tiring. China proved to be a remarkable country, we were all blown away how they have advanced mainly since Tienamen and then of course where they are going from here. The cities were all new and amazing, and very, very clean. We were hard pressed to find any litter anywhere. All of the major attractions were amazing....The Terra Cotta Warriors were almost beyond one should miss seeing this piece of history. At every place we went, Mark and smarTours had arranged for a tour guide for us for that area....they were able to give us great insight to that days activities from a local perspective.For your information, we saw tours from much more expensive tour companies all along the way...they were seeing most of the same sights, staying at many of the same sure to realize the value of this trip

China & Yangtze River Cruise with Hong Kong

Overall the tour was great. Harry was quite knowledgeable and a great tour leader who assisted with every needs. He saw that as Vegetarians we were accorded enough choices for our diet. Individual guides in the cities were also quite knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information.

EXCELLENT Tour April, 2016

This tour with Sun (Harry) was the best tour I have ever taken! He was an excellent tour guide and now friend to all of us that were on the tour together. Not only did we see most of the spectacular sites in China, crisscrossing the country, but Sun provided a lot of information regarding China, was always careful to meet everyone's needs and was a total support throughout the trip. His calm manner of navigating all the details for our group of 23 and for all the airports, buses, cruise boats and trains was amazing. His command of the English language and his sense of humor kept us very engaged! I have great memories of China, learned a lot and made a friend forever with Sun (Harry)! I would like to go on other Smartours and would welcome him as my guide anywhere in the World.

Excellant Tour

We did the tour "China & Yantze river cruise with Hong Kong" May 5 to may 21. Thanks to our fabulous Tour director Mr. Sun Qingjun we had one of the best experiences ever !! He interacted with each of us individually and attended to all our personal requests and needs and also shared his knowledge on China's history and culture. His overall service was beyond exceptional and set a high bar for excellence. " Thank You Sun "

An excellent Journey

My wife and I are back from the China, Yangtze and Hongkong tour which started on April 28, 2016. What a great experience it was!

Thanks to you tour director's Mark Ma's guidance, our earlier concerns did not materialize. We had no difficulties finding the hotel in Beijing and the assigned ship cabin was quite adequate.

Mark made the journey a pleasure. He guided as with calm and competence. He made itinerary changes that benefitted us, i.e. visiting the pandas in the zoo of Chongqing instead of Beijing . This allowed us to see 8 months old Tin-Tin. What a pleasure!

Mark's decision to collect a fixed amount from the group to pay the tips for the local guides and drivers made our life easier. Him taking care of the checking-in process for hotels, flights, trains etc. was also very much appreciated.

Speaking of easy - we really enjoyed the included porterage. How nice not to have to lug the suitcases ourselves. Getting them delivered to the room was great

One suggestion: please provide the headsets throughout the tour. It was so nice to hear Mark's and the local guides explanations while we had them. Later on it was difficult to hear, especially in the din of crowded places.

All in all, were are pleased and will consider your company for future trips.
