Overall very helpful

By: Angie

Our travel agent used the services of Wild China for our recent trip to Shanghai and Beijing. Overall the guides were good and having their services proved very helpful in a country where the language & driving were very different from our own. 2 of our 3 guides were quite insightful & accommodating and enhanced our trip in many ways. Our only complaint was that 1 of the guides in Shanghai was quick to deliver us to tourist-trap locations where she would receive a kick-back from any purchase we made. We only learned of this after we had already made a few unwise purchases and then wished maybe we had spent less time with her. My advice would be to use the help, but be forewarned & slightly wary of any guide suggested "tours" or shopping.

Wildly Fantastic!

We spent two full days touring Beijing with Wild China and they really could not have been better. Couldn't ask our guide a question he couldn't answer about what were seeing (and in 9.5/10 english fluency). Always on time and always with a smile and great attitude throughout the tour. Very flexible, even on the fly! We made several requests in the car that required slight deviations from the original plan. No problem.
