What Our Customers Say?

On behalf of the Hall and Vergona Family, the trip was truly amazing. Our guide, Sherry Li, was perfect. She was professional, patience, kind and generous. She exceeded our expectation. Our driver was just as wonderful. Both of them made our trip perfect. I am in Tokyo now and was talking to a couple from Australia about your company. I used Easy Tour China in July for an eight day tour and am a returning customer. Thank you very much.
