Doing the Highlights of China with Exiodus was a great way of seeing as much of China as possible in two weeks.At first I thought paying over two grand for this trip was an awful lot of money, but now I have to say it was worth every penny.
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I really enjoyed seeing the great wall of China and also the terracotta warriors as these are some of the top tourist attractions in China.
Exodus really do make sure that these days are something special for you and will give you English speaking tour guide's who know everything there is to know about the great wall and the terracotta warriors.
Just ask them any question you like!!
Also the open air Light Show in Yangshuo is a must see! with a cast of 600 people! I had never seen anything like it in my life!
Also alot of people who worked in the markets in China spoke excellent English which did surprize me! So if you are thinking of going on this holiday, do not worry! where ever you go there always be English speaking people around and about.
- What did you think of your group leader?
My group leader Emma was very good. She was always on time and never late. Every day she would give the group a breifing about what was happening the following day on our bus journeys or would come round and speak to me and the others in the hotel. Emma was very laid back and everything always went to plan. She had a great sense of humor and was more like a friend to us then a tour leader!
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This is a great was of seeing China in two weeks, but the days can be fast moving and your tour guide will fit in as much as possible every day.
Chill out time is mainly when you are on the bus traverling for a couple of hours from place to place, However when you are in Yangshuo and Shanghai you do get a free days in both these places to have a more restful day, Which is much needed!!!
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
Very good trip and a once in a life time oppotunity. It is alot of money, but is money well spent and a holiday you will remeber for the rest of your life!
GO FOR IT :-)
