"Trip was very well handled. I was on a small group and that was very nice in that you really got a chance to know the people with whom you traveled. Information was very forth coming and any time I had questions, my consultant was very helpful."

"Our tour guide was an exceptional gentleman. He was very attentive to everyone. His knowledge of the places we went, history and social customs of the people was outstanding. The "step on guides" were also outstanding. My travel companions were very friendly and watched out for others. The YMT staff was always courteous and returned calls in a timely manner. For me this was a trip of a life time. I think the trip and tours should have cost more. I certainly got my monies worth and then some in tour accommodations, meals, transportation, excursions, and laughter, and new friends! "

"A great tour! We took it because of prior experiences with YMT and we weren't disappointed…Our tour guide, Gloria, was outstanding! Her personality was wonderful, her knowledge was thorough, and her care and concern for the well being of all of us was outstanding. We all felt very lucky to be in her charge...We have traveled with YMT to Pasadena, Alaska, and Cuba, before China. In all cases the details were handled well, the accommodations were top, the personnel were professional and knowledgeable, and the trips were very enjoyable...Thank you and we will travel with you again, and again!"

"Overall, this was an excellent itinerary…I have been traveling with YMT since 2002, originally with my husband and now as a "single" (widow). I know the company is trustworthy, professional, and reasonably priced."

"Mr. Lui, our tour guide, made this trip go very well. He is a true professional and dealt well with all the tour participants. He was up early mornings and was the last one to get a good sleep. He coordinated all our "step-on" guides and all of our flights, activities, etc. The trip was the most aggressive one we have ever undertaken, but we did see a lot and did do a lot. I would recommend the tour to anyone who wants a true China experience! The coordination of every aspect of this trip was excellent. We have never had a bad tour guide with your trips. We think you get a lot for the price of the tour."

"I love traveling with YMT. Just got back from China. I had a great time. What a trip! The Great Wall was awesome. What fun we had riding on a rickshaw through town. I traveled with a group of 32 of the most wonderful people. Thank you YMT for another perfect vacation! I love traveling with YMT. This was my second trip with them and they get better and better. I have been to Europe and China with YMT. WOW!!!!!"

"This was the second of my vacations with YMT; both were done very professionally and the guides and directors went above and beyond to make sure our needs and pleasures were met. The accommodations were very good and the schedules adhered to…The tours included most all I wanted, good destinations, sights to see, accommodations, food, transportation, and the price was very good. I just had to relax and enjoy.! "

"YMT plans these vacations down to the very last detail. Happened to mention that my spouse's birthday would occur during this trip, and he was surprised by a light celebration with a cake that was enough for all of the members during lunch. We truly enjoyed ourselves and learned a lot more on the history, culture and people of the various cities in which we visited."

"I believe my China trip is my 5th trip with YMT and I have another one, visiting the state parks of the golden west in May. In short, I love traveling with YMT. Whatever is printed on the YMT brochure is what I expect and receive and much more!!!! I've also been traveling yearly with YMT for 3-4 years now. China has changed tremendously from what I have read in the past to today. But my visit, though short, fulfilled my longtime dream of setting foot on Chinese soil. YMT has made this dream come true and has given me a better insight in understanding folks in this part of the world. I have thoroughly enjoyed my visit and am thinking of visiting China, the Tibet area, the Silk Route area and the southern part as well. I wouldn't mind visiting the big cities again. I commend YMT in adding Legendary China and the Yangtze River Cruise in your itinerary. In addition I commend Jack and Jordan to YMT and CITS for their absolutely great service, personal attention to all of us, their sincere attitude, their knowledge of history and dealing people (mostly seniors) like us. I didn't feel foreign to them and vice versa. We all enjoyed being with them, their jokes and humor. On the last day, they walked us all the way to the international gate to bid us farewell. I thought that was very thoughtful."
