Tipping Policy in China


The coordination and efficiency of China Tour Guide was excellent. The local guides were prompt and took care of us from start to finish. We didn't experience any problems with the China Tour Guide travel plans. Our only problem was with Air China and our luggage. Our bags were delayed in Beijing and didn't connect with us on our flight to Shanghai. We had to spend our first 2 days in the same clothes we wore on the flight from NY and we were hot. Our bags arrived before we left Shanghai so it all turned out okay.

The train transportation went smoothly and it was a pleasant experience to ride with local people. The most important thing is that we visited the main attractions which was the purpose of our trip. My favorites were West Sea Grand Canyon hiking.

It's nice to have friends in China now. I am on facebook and have visited your account. I added a LIKE and viewed the beautiful photos. I'm not sure how to add you as a friend on the company account but will try to send you a friend request. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends who plan to visit China. Thank you again!
