Testimonials

Here are some comments from our recent travellers:

‘This summer was very smooth, aside from a little sickness here and there, it was just fantastic.  Putting together a new program in China felt like a big undertaking, but you helped make it an easy process.  Thank you for offering exactly what we are looking for- a mix of culture, community service, fun, adventure, and a very authentic experience. The students all loved the village stays, loved the service, loved the area and loved the guides.  We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship with you in the future. ‘

‘Backroads of China opens up a whole vista of views and sights of the real China, none of the glitzy sights one sees in the cities. You walk through and sleep in the villages, get a real feel for village life, eat like the common people, and best of all, you are doing it away from the touristic crowd. That’s what these tours offer, the real China. My first trip with Wang was a real eye opener, so much so I made a return trip again. The company was just great , you are amongst like minded people who share the same interest and curiosity. Logistics were well planned and executed, both Wang and Jonathan were extremely helpful in every aspect, I couldn’t ask for more.’

‘We work with many people in our business.  Backroads of China is one of our best organizers who are completely trustworthy.  We can safely leave our groups in their care.  With Backroads of China, our groups experience all the sights and tastes of not only the regular Chinese tour attractions but ‘real’ China including village walks/visits, local eateries as well as stays in local guesthouses/inns.’
Yong Lee Min, Yongo Travel, Malaysia

‘Thank you for organising us a wonderful trip in China; it was hugely varied and full of experiences. The guest houses were perfect; clean and simple and a great relief re sanitation.
The guides were great – really sweet and efficient and flexible- ordered lovely meals for us and never hurried or pushed us. And the drivers  were good and considerate at their job , especially in the face of manic truck drivers. We will certainly recommend you to any people wishing to discover (a bit of) the  real China.’
Jennie Foley, Britain

‘I was very impressed with how well organized our school trip was with Backroads of China. We all had a wonderful and meaningful experience. It was certainly not easy to move our large group of forty middle school students around in rural China but they did it! Another thing that impressed me was that Tania of Backroads understood well the expectations of our ‘Week Without Walls’ trip. The locations and activities chosen were very appropriate. The trip was designed to maximize student involvement in community service at local schools and farms. Thank you again Backroads, for an enjoyable and meaningful experience in Chengyang.
