We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Suzhou Tour

If you are interested in the Classical Chinese garden design, don't miss a trip to Suzhou. Listed UNESCO World Heritage in 1997, the Classical Gardens of Suzhou are masterpieces of Chinese landscape garden design, a symphonic combination of rocks, bridges, trees, water and buildings.

Described by Marco Polo as one of the most beautiful cities China, the "Garden City" of Suzhou is also dubbed as "Venice of the East" and immortalized in its hackneyed proverb "In heaven there is a paradise, on earth Suzhou and Hangzhou". Suzhou's charm lies in its surviving canal scenes, pagodas, whitewashed housing, cobbled streets, tree-lined avenues and canals.

This is the right one-stop place for planning your trip to Suzhou no matter you are a very independent traveler or local travel agency frequent user.
