Our China trip started in Beijing and ended in Shanghai, touring the sites in Beijing from the Forbidden City, Tienanmen square, The Great Wall etc. was amazing. On to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors a dream come true, something I had wanted to see since first reading about them. We boarded the cruise ship in Chongquing. Facilities on board were very comfortable, the personnel professional and friendly. Sites on route interesting and wonderful views especially in the Three Gorges area. The food was excellent, well prepared and plenty of variety of both Chinese and Western fare. Our guide throughout - Joshua - from meeting the 'plane in Beijing to seeing us through security in Shanghai was delightful. Very knowledgeable and fun. He helped us understand Chinese culture, and history and was always careful for our safety and well being. Kudos to him for a job excellently done. This trip was a gift to ourselves for our 50th wedding anniversary and was everything we had hoped for and more, however more 'physical' than anticipated. This should be made clear in your brochures. We may have come better prepared for all the walking etc.
