Our local guides in China were excellent. Almost everything was great: the itinerary, the guides, the company, etc. The food was variable but that wasn't the fault of our local guides. Chinese food just isn't to Western tastes, especially breakfast. A very enjoyable time. I only wish Undiscovered Destinations had more trips to China. The good thing about your Western China itinerary was that it didn't continue on to Pakistan or Kyrgyzstan which would have involved another complicated visa. If it had, I might not have booked. As it was, we could focus on the Chinese regions covered and I am fully satisfied that we have seen the best of that area. Tashkurgan was a highlight and it's surprising that some trips to the region with other companies do not go there.

I found the tour interesting. On the whole the leaders/guides we had were excellent and worked hard to organise the itinerary sensibly.

A very enjoyable time. Taking into account the number of miles we travelled sometimes over difficult terrain and so many sites, the holiday was excellent value for money.

A very enjoyable time. Guides were all good. Very polite, good standard of English. Drivers were very experienced and careful and the accommodation was good.
