21 Day China Panorama

Tour Testimonials

I have been traveling since my first trip oversea in 1967 to work and travel in Europe and have not stop. I have traveled with a backpack to ultra luxury, by myself and in groups, on business or pleasure and China Spree’s tour of China was the best I have every taken. We did not want it to end. Thank for a wonderful first experience of China.

CS: Comment on your National guide

Answer: He solved all problems before they even happened, he was always ahead of the game and solving an possible upcoming problem. He even saw what we were not eating during the first few meals and realized the group did like tofu so he ask us, got our opinion and then adjusted the menu for the rest of the trip

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

Answer: Go to China as soon as possible and as often as possible after your first trip, because it is such a vast country and there is so much to see, and use China Spree to make all arrangements

CS: Comment on your National guide

Answer: Edward was an excellent guide, he is organized, and knowledgable, a great problem solver and tried to please everyone on the tour. He appears to be a very caring person. For example, one night on the cruise tour and was sick and didn’t go to dinner. Edward called my room to check on me and later in the evening brought me fruits and breads to eat. He really went out of his way to do that, I thought that was very thoughtful.

Good morning Mr. Wu,

My wife and I just returned last week from our 21 day Panorama Tour (CS110427CP).
We want to let you know that the entire trip was not only amazing, but first class as well.
We were impressed with everything from start to finish:

- China Spree web site is detailed, well organized and very informative
- staff at the office are friendly and provide quick responses to questions
- all of the guides in China were fantastic (Kevin, Linda, Sue, Jack, Charlie, Tom and Celia).
  The service that they provided right up until our departures at the various airports was outstanding.
- all the places we visited in each city were well chosen and enjoyable
- food selection and proportions throughout the trip were excellent
- hotels that we stayed at were more like 6 star rather than the advertised 5 star

This was the first time that the two of us had elected to travel in a tour group. The "bar" has been set very high and we can only hope that our future tours can provide the service that China Spree provides. We certainly will be telling all of our travelling friends about the type and quality of tours that are available through China Spree.

You have an excellent tour business Mr. Wu. Be proud of your accomplishments, and always praise your entire staff both in the United States and in China. They certainly do an outstanding job.

Our only disappointment Mr. Wu is that China Spree does not offer tours to other parts of the world.

Thanks again to everyone at China Spree for making our trip to China an unforgettable experience.

We wish you well and continued success in the travel business.

I feel that my trip to china could not have been better. We took the 21 day trip and did we see China. I spoke to other tours while I was there, to learn we recivied the best value, plus we had the best. Our host quide, who stayed with us, made anything possible. Our zipper broke on our suite case and our quide took by husband to buy one between tours. Any problem we had as a group he covered it. Never have I been any where that people took such care to cover your needs or concerns. I do not believe there will ever be a trip, at this price, done so well. I'm not sure by paying more, a lot more, there will ever be such a tour. Thank you China Spree for showing your country to me with such pride and honestly. I left China feeling that anything was possible if you believe.

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

Answer: You'll never believe it. The chinese love the west, so they are facinated with us and we stick out. You'll come back being able to climb steps, and over whelmed. It's bigger than you can imagine, everything is bigger and more.

We have taken other group tours and China Spree was the best. Our favorite part of our tour was Kevin our national guide who made our trip very enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable, very attentive to everyone's needs and caring. Like other testimonials that I read before our trip, we were skeptical of rave revues but now we understand them. China Spree has 5 star hotels & great itineraries. We enjoyed the Chinese people as they were very friendly. While we were on tours, we were fortunate to have some school children on field trips and they were adorable & very friendly. We took the 21 day Panorama tour on 3/28/10 to 4/17/10.

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

Answer: I would recommend a trip to China to everyone and of course with China Spree.

Just returned from a 21-day trip to China with China Spree and I can not stop telling everyone how wonderful it was. The food was delicious, each hotel was more impressive than the one before, the trip was interesting, organized, and entertaining. But, the absolute best thing on our trip was our tour guide, Jim. He kept all of us on a tight schedule, and always made everyday an adventure -- a very lovely adventure. He was attentive to everyone's individual needs and made sure that he did everything humanly possible to fullfill those needs. He was kind and compassionate and his energy, humor and knowledge made the trip one that I will never forget.

CS: Comment on your Tour Manager, using rate 1-10 while 10 is the best

Answer: 50!!! Jim went over and above to make the trip the best it could be. We had one very difficult couple on this trip and yet Jim not only did his best to satisfy them, but never neglected any of us in the process. Jim never lost his temper or his patience and stayed focused and organized for the duration of the trip.

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

Answer: If you are thinking about travelling to China --- go with China Spree. You will have a trip of a lifetime. And ---- request Jim!!!!

CS: What could we have done to make your trip more enjoyable?

Answer: I highly recommend the China Spree Panorama Tour for anyone seeking to experience the broad spectrum of contemporary China. From pastoral scenes lifted right out of traditional Chinese landscape paintings to urban centers bursting from change, from leisurely cruises to a high speed magnetic train, from ancient temples to outbursts of modern design, you will sample all the richness and color of this exciting country. Our national and local guides were always informative and ever reliable, caring for our needs as a group and for us as individuals. This is the great benefit of small group travel with China Spree. The result was a truly memorable tour, designed to showcase China and achieved with great efficiency, fine accommodations, and with good spirit and a real sense of the joy of travel.

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

Answer: Put aside any concerns about hotel choices, food selection, health issues, etc. and be open to the varied experiences that make up modern China, knowing that you are in competent and caring hands with China Spree.

China Spree does an amazing job with every aspect of their tours. How are able to provide such excellent hotels and itineraries at such economic rates? I have no idea. We asked our last (and favorite) local guide in Shanghai what she thought about China Spree since she provides tours for many travel companies, and she said she felt that China Spree provided the best value for your money. She commented on the fact that Wilson returns to China several times a year to check on the hotels and try out new restaurants, whereas other tour companies keep the same itineraries, hotels, and restaurants without ever returning ensure that the quality is maintained. She also mentioned that the China Spree travelers always seem really happy with their trips, which we certainly were. All this to say, our group of eight travelers was thrilled with China Spree at the end of our trip and it was interesting to hear her point of view considering her experience with such a wide variety of travel companies.

CS: What did you like about this trip?

Answer: The pacing was perfect, the hotels were amazing (except for Guilin), the tour guides were great, we learned a ton, the price was very affordable, and everything went perfectly.

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

Answer: I highly recommend anyone and everyone who is planning a trip to China for the first time to travel with China Spree. It is the best deal out there and you receive first rate service. As a history teacher, I gained a wealth of information about China from the local guides and brought back plenty of artifacts and photos to inspire my students. The hotels were amazing and the itinerary set the perfect pace for us to see the wonders of China without killing us off in the process. My favorite experiences were those where we got to be with the local people such as the lunch in the Hutongs and joining in a fan dance in Beijing, the Dragon Spine rice terraces with the Zhuong, Miao, and Yao minority people, and the tuk tuk ride to the farm in Yangshuo.

China Spree gave us the trip of a lifetime on our "panorama tour:" a thoughtful, varied itinerary in just the right order, with a mixture of exercise and rest; a top-notch national guide and good local guides, superb organization, fabulous hotels way beyond our expectation, tasty meals, and interesting optional experiences, such as the amazing light show in Yangshuo. The thorough China Spree website answered all our questions, provided historical background, and gave on-target advice about clothing, adaptors, and photographic equipment and batteries. And, with its great testimonials, it attracted a great group of people with whom we enjoyed traveling. I'm delighted to be able to encourage others to embark on their own adventures in China with China Spree as their guide!

China Spree first impressed me with the detail of their website; next with the immediate and helpful responses to all emails during the planning stages of my trip; and finally with the care and consideration shown during my visit. The varied aspects of the tour, emphasizing both city and country life, was impressive. The comfortable accommodations and delicious food were an added bonus. Our Tour Manager, Lucy Yu, is a National Treasure. I will, and indeed have already, recommend China Spree to my friends.

CS: Comment on your Tour Manager, using rate 1-10 while 10 is the best

Answer: Lucy Yu was pleasant yet exuded confidence. She was obviously knowledgeable and experienced and always gave the impression of being able to resolve any problem. She has a splendid manner of conciliation, being able to cope with all types of personalities.

My wife and I are experience travelers, and have never been on a tour in any of our travels in the past. We were, in fact, very leary of going on a tour that would limit our personal options, but were also well aware that travel to China would be more difficult than we thought we could manage on our own. We researched for months and discovered China Spree. I cannot say enough about their well thought out itinerary, exceptional national and local tour guides, excellent hotels, and exciting and informative local tours. We made lifelong friends on the trip, including every member of our group of twelve. Having such a small group allowed us to really get to know one another, and form friendships that have continued. Several of us are planning to get together on future trips, and we hope to make more with China Spree.

CS: According to your experience from this trip what would you suggest to those who are going to traveling to China?

Answer: The tour is arduous and you need to be in decent shape to make it through the long days. But it’s well worth it. Also, PACK LIGHT!! You need half of what you think you need, and you can cut that back by another 25%. Good shoes, underwear that you can wash and dry overnight, and a good camera. Easy packing clothing that you can wear day in and day out.

We can't rave enough about China Spree. Like most other testimonials on their website, we also marveled about the value, the the quality of hotels, meals, attractions, motor coaches and national and local guides. Believe all you read in all of the testimonials. It is all true.

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

Answer: Have no fear with China Spree as the tour operator. It is an amazing safe country where you need three weeks to do it all.

As an artist and art historian who has studied China for 30 years, this trip was a dream come true. I don't feel like I went to another specific little part of the world, I feel as though I came to understand a greater part of the world. I recommend China Spree 21-Day China Panorama tour to anyone who wants to take the trouble to see China at all. Go for it! Sure it's not like the West, it's not supposed to be! Our guides and other people who helped us on the tour were so kind and helpful. If I only had one trip to take to the Orient, China Spree would be my choice. The amount of sightseeing, the wonderful accommodations, and the bounteous food make this a truly world-class bargain!
