Imperial China & Yangtze River Cruise

Great Wall - great everything!

What a great trip that was! It was relentlessly busy and heaving with people, but so enjoyable. We were constantly on the go, spending no more than three nights in any one location. Three slightly uncomfortable nights on a 'soft sleeper' train, and three very comfortable nights on the Yangtze river boat, except the last noisy one when we travelled through the five locks at the Three Gorges Dam. But any discomfort paled into insignificance at each destination. I saw far more of the country than I had expected, both urban and rural, and now have a much better understanding of China, its culture and people - and the food, glorious food!

This was our first group holiday having previously travelled around various Asian countries on our own. The holiday exceeded our expectations and we really enjoyed the experience of modern China. The organisation was good with a great balance of varied experiences. The food was excellent too.

This trip was far better than I expected. We saw and experienced so much of the people and culture of China and it was truly an adventure.

This trip was all that was described to a "T". For only one exception and that was the stairs at some of the rail stations that did not have elevators, my expectation was much lower than what actually existed, so my advice would be pack very lightly and ensure that you can carry your luggage up and down those many stairs. Yes they prepared us for stairs, .....but not how many !! I was a solo female over 60 so did struggle sometimes and I am reasonably fit. Nevertheless the trip overall was excellent, and the experience on the sleeper trains was lets say "different", but at the very least, you are seeing life as the Chinese people live it and after all, isn't that what we travel for.

The whole trip from start to finish was an experience well worth taking. Of course there were a few things which perhaps in hindsight could have been improved upon, particularly the overnight sleeper train journeys. We would have much preferred to have paid a little extra to have used the bullet train or even an extra flight wherever possible in order to have had more time to carry out sightseeing and avoid the arduous journeys. However, apart from that the holiday which was well organised by Exodus and superbly led by our tour guide, Alan Liu, (Hongbin Liu), who was absolutely brilliant. When you are on holiday, no matter who you go with, the face of the company is represented by the Tour Leader and in our instance this was Alan Liu. If we were to go back to China we would go on the understanding that the tour would again be led by Alan. He was extremely informative, funny, very well organised and knew his subject matter well. He ensured that we were at a particular venue or place at the right time so as to avoid the crowds and get the best views and this was particularly the case when we visited the Panda sanctuary at Chengdu where he timed it to perfection and we saw the Pandas at their liveliest and just before the main crowds arrived. Exodus would be so much poorer without the services of that man.

If you want to see as much of China as possible in a relatively short period then this trip ticks all the boxes. Get used to early starts, a lot of walking although not to arduous, hectic and overcrowded railway stations, but it is absolutely worth it! You get to see all the major attractions China is well known for but it also exposes you to the rural side of China where things are so different.

This is the first time my wife and I had visited China and felt that it was important to make the trip with a company who knew their way around the country. Exodus excelled at that and our tour guide, Alan Liu, (Hongbin Liu), played such a vital part in making the trip enjoyable.
