Overall we had a holiday of a lifetime. Got everything out of it in terms of experience and involvement – had the old culture, the latest advancement, visited so many places, shopping and the variety of food. Even tried the local wine which was like drinking pure alcohol! Cannot believe we managed to do everything and then some. One has to visit China to really understand the people, culture and country - so clean and friendly. Thank you again for all your help.

The trip has been fantastic. Abhijeet, our driver Arwin and all the tour guides have been great. Could not fault them. They went out of their way to please us and make sure we are comfortable and were enjoying our tour. Their knowledge of the history has made the trip even more interesting. What can I say about the Taj .......speechless!!! Our dream fulfilled. Thank you Nikki for putting this tour together for us.

My travel in China was organised by Travelbay, their service is A1, they treat you as a person not a number!! Travelbay organised everything for me from arrival to departure including all accommodation, drivers, guides, and all points of interest, this is important because driving in China is a challenge even with GPS!

I was told it was a quiet day for visitors to the Warriors, to me it seemed there were masses of people, I wondered what a 'busy day' would be like. I did not have to join the queues, Travelbay had organised non-queueing entry for me. One needs this type of service in China because all places of interest always have long queues. 

I suggest you add a visit the warriors on to your bucket list, it is an unforgettable experience. I rate it in my top 5 experiences I have had in all my many travels worldwide.

The guides & drivers in China were exceptional, they are obviously well trained in their tasks.

Travelling in private car with guide and driver is the best way to see China – did not have to wait for a number of passengers to get on and off the bus and we used the time between venues to do our chatting.

On arrival in Beijing we were met by Zack, a delightful, friendly young man (30). His English and knowledge of Beijing excellent and he carried out his duties in a very professional manner. Zhang, our driver, was also very friendly but unfortunately could not speak English, we would have loved to include him in our conversations. We had two very full days with them in Beijing and right from the start, we felt that we were on a family outing.

We covered miles in Beijing, glad that we had more time there as there was a great deal to see. Highly recommend the tourist company you used.

Just a note to say a big thanks. I just loved Kerala. The trip and Kochi was utterly amazing, you must go. I LOVED Kochin itself, the shopping, people, history.. And the river boat cruise an absolute highlight - BRILLIANT!! Staff were gorgeous, open, cooked whatever I requested without issue…really super. I would do again.

Thank you for organising such a great tour. Our nine day tour of Sri Lanka was amazing and everything went according to plan. 

Our driver/guide Lionel navigated through the busy tuk tuk laden streets with ease in his air conditioned sedan. He passed on much of his vast knowledge of the rich history and culture of Sri Lanka and the Buddhist religion as we toured around.

The hotels we stayed in were brilliant. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were welcoming and accommodating.

The highlights for us included the Sigiriya Rock Fortress (amazing), Minneriya National Park where we saw a large number of elephants bathing in a natural environment only for the herd to walk back into the bush just behind our jeep, The Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic at Kandy and of course the train ride from Kandy to Nanu Oya and the tea high country were all spectacular.

The additional day spent travelling to Galle was well worth it. We paid for additional visits to places we wanted to see along the way to Galle. These included visiting a turtle sanctuary, a cinnamon farm (no charge) , a moonstone mine (no charge), tasting a local toddy and doing a boat tour of the Koggala Lake. These extras really added to the day. 

Thanks for a well organised and very enjoyable tour

We have never been on an organised tour before India. When we arrived in New Delhi it was late at night and after a long flight it was so nice to just walk out of customs and have a smiling face holding a sign with our names on it and straight to the hotel without having to haggle and organise our own transport.

What can we say about all the guides and all the drivers - nothing but friendly and beyond helpful.

We did have one hitch along the way - the train we had booked from Varanasi to Agra was already running 15 hours late before it arrived LOL!! All good was quickly sorted and we were on a flight instead.  

Loved Loved Loved India saw things there we have never and never will probably see again in our life - but hey isn't that why we travel. 

Thanks again for the hard work you guys did and your colleagues in India.

Sri Lanka was fantastic. EVERYTHING went well. The train ride from Nuwara Eliya to Ella was really a good add on. Our driver was a lovely man - our age so we had things in common. Such an interesting place.

How you communicate and what you offer is in such a lovely way that I really feel held in love and very much supported on my way. There is a lightness, playfulness and joy in every email that I feel like already on a heavenly trip. Thank you so much for making it so easy and to bring so much joy into the planning.

Before I write of this subject I want to thank Nikki, Nicola & Fiona of Travelbay for organising a wonderful itinerary for me of Vietnam. Unfortunately my time was not long enough (6 days). I suggest at least 10 days would be appropriate. If you are thinking of a visit to Vietnam think no longer "GO"! 10 out of 10 for service from Travelbay.

You have chosen a professional & obviously experienced company in Vietnam. Everything went exceedingly well. All guides & drivers were very helpful & obliging to my needs.

It was a fantastic holiday, China is an incredible country. We will definitely go back. I can definitely recommend those “less known” areas of China. We were the only Westerners there most of the time. Naturally we drew quite a few looks from the locals. The ones who could, often tried to speak to us, mainly kids or younger adults.

I can only say thank you very much for the team’s effort in delivering us a fantastic holiday to China. Wow we had such a full on nine days. We had only a short time to fit so much in and we all would like to say how well it went. Great hotels, fantastic guides and so many great adventures and incredible experiences. The Great Wall was worth every sore muscle. Overnight train ride was such a great way to really get to know friends that have never travelled together. The Terracotta Warriors! Amazing. Dumpling cooking – wow, never thought we could eat so many. The caves and the Hallelujah Mountains in Zhangjiajie were breathtaking. Then to Tiananmen Mountains where we walked the glass walk way and were lucky the see some of the guys jumping off the top in flying suits - was awesome. Finally finished a great trip in Shanghai.

You just couldn’t do China without a guide. You’d be lost and it would be challenging. 

Our guides were fantastic. For example, they’d take us to a restaurant in the evening and instead of just dropping us off, they’d come in to make sure that were ok and that we could understand the menu and were happy to stay. 

We saw a few group tours and they didn’t look so nice. One tour guide was screaming at a young girl. We asked our guide what was going on and she said the tour guide was upset because the girl was going too slow. This girl was in tears and it was really a horrible experience. 

Zhangjiajie is a must and is highly recommended. We had two days there and the first day we visited the Hallelujah mountains and Yellow Dragon Cave. Hallelujah Mountain has an elevator that takes you to the top and then you get out and walk around. (Here we could insert video of lift and some photos). The next day we visited Tiananmen mountain. It is a half hour chair lift to get to the top and the scenery is incredible.

It was great. Thanks from us all.

Thank you for your help on my trip to Vietnam. It was a great trip. All the people who you deal with in those countries are really good. They know their stuff and were really good guides. Everything worked well and I really enjoyed the trip. I look forward to dealing with you on future trips.
