    Yolin was a fantastic guide! She took care of everything for us, even coming up to our hotel room to make sure everything was to our liking before we settled in. She was incredibly attentive and friendly. We only had a few days in Zhangjiajie so I was grateful we got a guide. Yolin knew the parks we visited well, including the best routes to go to avoid peak crowds. I only have good things to say about her.

    I was satisfied with the good service provided by TCG! My 3 days Zhangjiajie tour was full of happiness! The driver was very good at his driving and we were transferred to the destinations safely. The ride was very comfortable. The car was also very clean and comfortable.
    Great thanks!

    I expected a lot about the Glass Bridge in Zhangjiajie before the trip. However, I was a little disappointed that it was not as high as I had imagined, only about 60-meter high. I thought it could be higher and riskier. But the scenery of Zhangjiajie is really beautiful. By the way, I love the night view of Fenghuang most! The mysterious and charming water town really worth a good visit! Generally, this 5 days Zhangjiajie Fenghuang tour was good. ... More

    An extremely pleasant trip! The guide had a rich knowledge reserve. No matter what we asked, she could always explain it clearly and logically! Her narrations of the scenic spots were awesome! We received much warm and considerate care on the whole 5 days private Zhangjiajie & Fenghuang tour. One of our group members had a cold and she brought him some medicine. We were lucky to have such a responsible and kind tour guide!

    We had a lot of fun on the 3 days Zhangjiajie tour and the schedule planned for us was very good. There was no shopping! But one defect was that the food didn’t well suit my taste. In short, our journey was successful!

    Having learned the lesson from the last time - do not travel to China during Chinese holidays, we chose to travel to Zhangjiajie in winter this time. My relatives were satisfied with this customized Zhangjiajie tour. Winter tourism was relatively rare. Most of the classic attractions were included in our trip. The hotels were quite high-end and we all had a relaxed time in the hotel. The most surprising thing was that there were only 4 people in our group, two families. We got along well with each other and the guide had enough energy to pay more attention to each of us. Be sure to avoid the Chinese holidays! ... More

    I really appreciated our guide. He arranged everything perfectly. The members of our group were all lively and cheerful young travelers. We were very happy to get along with each other. I strongly recommended the beautiful scenery of Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge. Although the 3-day Zhangjiajie trip was a little tiring, it was full of joy and happiness.
