We traveled as a family to Beijing and Xi'an. Pre-trip planning was done via our travel agent, with excellent communication with the WildChina folks via email. Questions were answered promptly, and all the information we got was absolutely correct.
A snowstorm forced changes to 3 days of our plans - but our guide Michael handled all of it effortlessly. (At least it appeared effortless - I think it was a ton of effort on his part!) Traveling as a family of 4 (with 12- and 13-year-old daughters), having a personal driver, car and guide was great - never having to find a place to park, and essentially no lines at any of the places we visited. WildChina had arranged all entrances ahead of time, so it really let us make efficient use of time. Michael was able to engage the kids at each location, while also giving great background information along with cultural reference.
Jessica was our guide in Xi'an, and was also excellent. Again challenged by weather, she was able to find a cave home for us to visit (the first one planned was iced in), and all of us came away with an incredible experience, and a much better appreciation for the multi-generational living arrangements the family established.
Airport and train transfers were seamless, and again took all the stress out of travel planning.
We don't usually use a tour planner / guides, but for this trip, I am incredibly grateful for the services WildChina provided. We have plans to return to China to see different parts of the country and hope to work with them again.
