We are delighted to bring you the first of many Private Tours to China that Travelbay will be offering.
For about a year we (Nikki and Nicola) have been searching for a tour operator in China that could really look after our customers. In our experience it is particularly important when travelling in China to have someone who knows the ropes looking out for you.
We had heard many not so great stories and experiences from people who had gone on very large tours (offered by other companies) and been herded around from place to place and taken to shops more for the benefits of the tour operators and shops than the traveller.
After much research, in April we met up with a wonderful and very experienced company based in China, that offered the service we were looking for. Above you see us with two of our colleagues and new friends.
What is a Travelbay Private Tour?
On our Private Tours to China, you will have your own driver and also an English speaking tour guide. We can put on vehicles of any size so these tours can cater for anyone from a single traveller to a large group.
Everything is set up for your benefit. You can go to the toilet when you want, stay a little longer or leave a little earlier at your visits and there are no heavy sales – it is all about you!
You would think a Private Tour would be very expensive, but we have managed to negotiate some excellent rates for our customers. You will find details of our first tour here: Classic 10 Day China Tour with many more on their way :)
In fact, we think this is such a great deal and love being able to offer this level of care and access to special places that we are planning many more Private Tours to other countries in addition to China.
As always we would love to hear your views on all this – so far the customers we have spoken to share our excitement about this new offering.
