I contacted WildChina because I knew they were members of Virtuoso. Virtuoso is the “Best of the Best” in the travel world and there is some extreme vetting that takes place to be accepted to be affiliated. Every tour provider wants to have the ability to display the Virtuoso gold seal of approval only a handful get to.

I was going to be spending three weeks in South East Asia and thought that since I was “in the neighborhood” I would pop up to Beijing to see the Great Wall and Forbidden City. I only had two nights I could spare which equates basically to one day for touring so it was a tall order to try to see the sights without it feeling like a marathon. WildChina planned everything beautifully.

Our guide Abraham was a delight, extremely knowledgeable but also friendly and fun. He went well above and beyond in his service. He knew I was on a mission to bring back for my son some Udon noodles and rice noodles and took it upon himself to find them in his spare time in the evening!

As we headed out at 8am we reached the wall with no one in sight and had it to ourselves for about a half hour. Abraham encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone (while also saying he would take the chairlift down with me if I was too afraid) and I tobogganed down the Great Wall that is something I won’t soon forget!
They arranged for a fantastic lunch at a great restaurant to refuel before the Forbidden City. It was a fantastic day!

Then, because I was staying at Aman Summer Palace Abraham arrived at 8am the next morning to tour that with me before I had to leave for the airport to fly home. It was amazing how much we covered in so little time without feeling rushed. That is the epitome of an expert planner. I would recommend spending more time than I did, we need to return/especially when it is warmer, but it was a wonderful ending to my Asia Adventure. I can’t recommend WildChina enough!

We had a great time exploring Shanghai and Suzhou with WildChina! Everyone we worked with were exceptional - from the planning with Angela in their Beijing office, to our guide Joyce and the driver. We were traveling with a baby and toddler, and the itinerary put together was perfect. We were able to get a taste of each city without being exhausted. We will definitely use WildChina again for our next China trip!

Wild China is world class. We spent six days in Beijing as a family and had the most fantastic time. A lot of thought was put into our itinerary and it worked brilliantly. Jerry, our guide, was knowledgeable, passionate and good company. The children were really impressed by the major sites, but will be probably remember best the side visit to a fighting cricket trainer and doing kung fu in the Temple of Heaven's park. Seeing a remote section of the Great Wall on a cold, but bright New Year's day with no-one else around was a particular privilege.

We have been to China a number of times before with other operators. I would not hesitate to recommend Wild China as the best in the business.

We loved Wild China! They did a great job of showing us the history of China while keeping our teenager entertained. They made sightseeing easy. Our travel guide, Michael, was wonderful.

Michael and the entire WildChina team were excellent guides to this amazing country. From a toboggan slide down the Great Wall of China, to a local restaurant right on the river, we were in great hands. Can't recommend them enought!!
