I requested a 2 day tour from Taiyuan to Pingyao from Wild China---they not only organized it but provided Brenda (the BEST english speaking guide) and and awesome driver who took the best of care of me. They were attentive to my interests (awesome at bargaining while shopping) - recommended excellent food options and were very knowledgeable about the area as well
The tour was delightful in every way --I also highly recommend staying at Jing Residence - it is worth the experience/ ambience----

Ah, Wild China...

We traveled for 18 days with knowledgeable and personable guides, and were able to see not only the "must sees" of China and Tibet but (more importantly for us) were able to interact with the Chinese people both in the cities and in the country. If you are one of those folks looking for a "cookie cutter" tour of China from the seat of a bus I suggest you look elsewhere. For those looking for a true representation of what China is/will be you can stop looking now. Wild China is IT.

Thank you to Veronique for putting this all together (and getting us vegetarian options for dinner!), to Angela for working out the travel glitches (Chinese domestic air travel can be challenging at times), to ALL our guides for being absolutely wonderful, and to the wonderful folks we met along the way who took the time to talk with us and share parts of their lives.

If we manage to get back to China we will have Wild China arrange everything - but I bet you already surmised that.

Just no seaweed for dinner next time. :)

My husband and I just got back from an amazing trip to China planned by Wild China. Everything went seamlessly. From start to finish. The guides and drivers were awesome. They took us to the best sites, restaurants and hotels. We learned a lot about history as well as present day China. We liked the trip so much that we hope to take another trip to china, in the not too distant future, and explore other areas?

Just finished our 4th journey with WildChina visiting Jianshui and interesting ethnic minority villages on the way from Kunming. Although it was our shortest China trip it was organized, executed, the same professional way as our other journeys to Tibet, Northern Yunnan, and the Silkroad.
Thank you again, Jenny Zhao, for putting all these truly memorable tours together! We felt they were unique, go beyond the normal tourist path. We could learn about the local culture and the daily life of the diverse Chinese minorities, stay at unique historic places, enjoy the local cuisine (Yunnan food is our favorite now. Yak meat, for instance, is better than expected, Yak butter tea not quite as good :), feel like Marco Polo on a camel, and be stunned by amazing landscapes.
On all the tours we had exceptional guides. They were very passionate, spoke English fluently and excited to pass on their extensive knowledge. If difficulties arose, like the car getting stuck in mud or a snowstorm, it was handled well. We also felt that WildChina was following our progress throughout all the trips.
We highly recommend WildChina!

WildChina provides 'the' absolute ideal solution for a first visit to vast, culturally-diverse, historically-complex and experience-full China. From the relevance and customization of the planning phase and in-trip monitoring by the friendly Beijing office, to the depth, quality and passion of guides we had at each step of our trip, we spent an intense (by design) and unforgettable two-week family holidays (parents + three teenagers). A great high-end way to make the most of the Middle Kingdom.
