Private tour with excellent guide and/or guide and driver were a perfect one-to-one experience. Everything was handled expertly--pickups, check-ins,transportation, narratives.

The tour guides were excellent! Always on time, helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and most accommodating. The drivers were also excellent. I would recommend the Private Tour -- go at our own pace(which is fast) and not having to wait for anyone. Read More »
I was able to strike two places from my "bucket list": the Great Wall and the Museum of the Terracotta Warriors. The guides were excellent and knowledgeable; transfers were without fail on time and without a hitch. General Tours eliminated the administrative and logistical vicissitudes of traveling, particularly where one does not speak the local language. Read More »
