I am very satisfied with China Spree from the start to the finish and especially with PONG/ Nick our tour guide who did an outstanding job of making us safe/comfortable and keeping us informed and also with his impeccable organizational skills anticipating needs and addressing them. Hard working and conscientious and very knowledgeable and maintained order for the group.

China Spree far exceeded my expectations as a tour company. I have travelled all over the world with many tour companies and China Spree is one of the best. Pong, our national guide, was incredible. He always made sure we were taken care of and gave us his personal cell phone number in case we encountered any issues while in China. He had great knowledge of the Chinese culture and gave us adequate time at each attraction to fully experience the trip! I cannot recommend this travel company enough! You must sign up with them - you will not regret it!! They had great local guides and the hotels were amazing!!

CS: Was there a particular highlight of your China trip you wish to share?

Answer: Pong (our national guide) was incredible. He went out of his way to make sure that we were taken care of throughout the trip. He offered great history into each of the attractions and gave us adequate time at each location to explore on our own. I have taken many trips all over the world and Pong was the BEST tour guide I have ever had!! The local guides in Beijing (Ivy), Chengdu (Wata) and Tibet were also great. They all spoke very good English which allowed us to communicate effectively and ask questions about the Chinese culture.

CS: Comment on your tour guides

Answer: Pong was incredible!! As stated above, I have travelled all over the world and done many tours. Pong is by far, the best tour guide I have ever travelled with. He had great knowledge of the Chinese culture, spoke excellent English and made sure we were always taken care of. He would call ahead to make sure hotel rooms were ready and meals were ready. This trip was so easy I can't even express my gratitude to China Spree. It far surpassed my expectations. Pong also advised that China Spree did tours in other parts of Asia...when I travel again to Asia, i will be sure to use China Spree! The guide in Lhasa spoke incredible English. I expected him to speak broken English and was very impressed by his knowledge of the temples and his ability to respond to all of our questions. It was also great that Ivy was with us at the airport as we were leaving Beijing to head back to the US. I always felt like the guides had our best interests at heart and were there to assist us with any issues we may have encountered.

CS: Your comment on hotels

Answer: All hotels were good, but the Marriott in Beijing was the best. The lobby was a great place to hang out and have drinks or mingle with other people in the tour group. Also, it had the best breakfast offering of all the hotels in this trip.

China Spree far exceeded my expectations on this trip. Our national guide, Pong, was incredible. He made sure everyone on the trip was taken care of and he was always available to us if we had issues with any hotel services or any other issues while traveling in China. I was sick the first few days and he repeatedly checked on me to make sure I was ok and gave me his cell phone number to call if I needed him.

He wanted to make sure we all had an amazing trip!! His knowledge of the Chinese culture was incredible and I learned a ton of new things about the Chinese people.

He even ordered pizza for us one night so we would have food to eat on the flight back to Beijing (as at the end of the trip we were all craving American food).

I have traveled all over the world with many tour companies and this was one of the best!!! I knew that if there were any issues, Pong would take care of us.

I am really impressed by the high quality of guides used on this trip! China Spree did a great job organizing this trip and providing me with the trip of a lifetime.

Thanks again for having excellent staff that made this such a memorable trip!

Our recent experience with China Spree as amazing. The hotels, tour guides and locations visited were all great. The descriptions lived up to the experience and the overall travel was run seamlessly. I am about to go on another trip with the company and looking forward to another great experience.

CS: Was there a particular highlight of your China trip you wish to share?

Answer: Pong (Nick) our national tour guide was amazing. He knew so much and shared a lot of insights along the way. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great time. Along with the great guides the sights we saw were amazing as well (fast pace but in line with expectations) tour to see the highlights of China. I would highlight recommend this tour to others. The hotels were also top knock which made the trip go smoothly as you knew you had a great place to sleep every night.

CS: Comment on your tour guides

Answer: Excellent because everything was easy. We always knew what was going on and what was coming up next. My wife and I had an issue with our connecting flights to go to Vietnam and Pong went out of his way to call the airlines for us even though it did not directly relate to the trip we were on. He also provided a lot of great insight to everywhere we went. We knew we were in a safe pair of hands with Pong and this made the trip an amazing experience. All of the guides were excellent. I can't remember the name of the Lhasa guide but that has nothing to do with his quality more us being a little out of it while there. Ivy-Vast knowledge and had a personable way of dealing with the group Pong (Nick) - great local knowledge of XIAN made him great for the area and he always took care of us with everything. Walter/Lhasa - Great knowledge of the area.

I absolutely loved my ChinaSpree experience. It has been a dream of mine to travel to China and Tibet; ChinaSpree made it affordable. The professionalism and general upbeat attitude of each and every one of the tour guides made each day a pleasure - every day was filled with learning new facts and having many laughs thanks to the crew. I highly recommend booking with ChinaSpree for your China excursion. The only wish I have is that I had more vacation days to do one of the longer trips!!

CS: Was there a particular highlight of your China trip you wish to share?

Answer: Tibet - I absolutely loved seeing the religious significance in the Tibetan life and the amazingness of how untouched the Potala was. I truly hope the urbanization of Lhasa does not continue as it is truly remarkable there. Pheobe and our tour guide in Tibet really stood out as exceptionally professional and friendly. I had a great experience getting to know each of them on a personal level and they are so open and cordial with each and every one of us. I highly recommend china spree solely on the performances of Pheobe, our lhasa guide and our national guide Jim.

CS: Comment on your tour guides

Answer: Jim was amazing. Not only was he very informative, he was also just fun to be around - he made the experience a very enjoyable one - he is an excellent asset for your company

CS: Based on your experience from this trip what would you like to say to potential travelers to China?

Answer: Get ready for delicious food, amazing scenery, and a slight workout! Doing things like the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and anything in Tibet keeps you on the go for most of the day - so I strongly recommend prepping your body and getting it ready for extensive walking, some climbing, and in Tibet's high altitude get the prescribed medication!

This trip was excellent....far exceeding our expectations. We chose the Middle Kingdom and would highly recommend this to potential travelers to China.. The hotels were great...our tour guide Clevin was totally knowledgeable, good humored and helpful. The breakfasts were terrific and the other meals were good. Almost all of your meals are included. Of course, the sights were amazing and the itinerary was inclusive. Our fellow travelers on this tour were great... congenial, diversified and each sharing the love of travel. Everyone also shared the same opinion as to the great value and total commitment of China Spree!! We appreciated the warm affection and interest shown to us by the people of China as we travelled through the country only adding to a perfect trip.

Answer: If you have the opportunity to visit China, China Spree gives you what they promise and more!!!We are usually independent travelers, but the way to see China is on a tour. Great distances and language necessitates taking a tour so do your investigating as we did. This is a wonderful trip conducted with professionalism and knowledge. We truly had an amazing experience. China's growth is unbelievable and the people are warm and loving. You will have a great trip!!

We have already recommended China Spree to friends! The overall quality of the entire trip, including tours/meals/hotels, exceeded our expectation based upon the low cost of the China Spree package. We don't know how they provide a 5-star trip at such a low cost...and they aren't paying me to say this! You just have to do it to believe it.

CS: Comment on your tour guides

Answer: Ming Li was amazing! We all LOVED her. She has to be your best guide...we felt lucky to have her. Cannot say enough about how comfortable she made us feel, her passion to make everyone happy and her knowledge of the sights.

CS: Based on your experience from this trip what would you like to say to potential travelers to China?

Answer: Have an open mind, be well-rested as it is an action-packed trip, expect lots of Chinese food and get ready for the best tour of your life!

A great tour especially for the cost and accommodations. Our tour guide for the whole trip was Nick. And he made our trip even more enjoyable. We highly recommend this tour, and if we go on another one to the places they travel to, we will choose China Spree.

CS: Was there a particular highlight of your China trip you wish to share?

Answer: We really enjoyed the whole trip, from the hotels to the tours but especially we loved our tour guide, "nick"., Peng.. He made the whole trip so enjoyable. If we go on another tour we want him to host it!!!! He should train all of your tour guides. I just can't say enough good things about Nick. He shared his love of his country and his friendship.
