What our clients say about us
We had a great time, all of the arrangements turned out perfectly. The hotels were all of good quality, the guides all showed up on time and we made all of our connections with ease. We had a fantastic vacation – thanks for all of your efforts to ensure that was the case for us! Kim & Bruce A, West Vancouver, BC (2010 custom tour)
Finally we have time to let you both know what an INCREDIBLE holiday you organized for us! Our tour of China turned out to be a "trip of a lifetime" for us both. We have so many memories and highlights of our time in China that we are still trying to absorb everything we saw and experienced, All of our guides were such warm and thoughtful people who provided us with such a deep knowledge of the country and it's history and customs. Every part of the tour was beyond our expectations and we highly recommend Wan-da tours for anyone who wants to experience China and all that it has to offer. China is an experience of the heart and we will never ever forget this incredible journey.
Cal and Donna M, Lethbridge, AB (24-day Shangri-la Tour)
The trip was fantastic. The hotels were great, especially the Banyan Tree in Lijiang, which was my most favorite place of all; the location and view were outstanding. We loved the people and the villages and the wonderful shows. One show we saw at a theatre in Kunming was the best thing I have ever seen. The Water and Light Show at Yangshuo was absolutely fabulous. The Shaolin Zen Grand Concert was another highlight. So, too, a show in Chengdu featuring Sichuan Opera and face-mask changing. Incredible. But by far the best show was the Impressions of West Lake at Hangzhou. It was breathtaking. I don't think I'll ever see as beautiful an event in my life. I wish we had had more time. I could have spent another day in Kunming, Emeishan and Shanghai. I came away loving China and want to go back. Thank you for arranging the tour for us.
Wendy S, West Vancouver, BC (Custom tour)
An outstanding trip. We soaked up every minute of it. Every stop was enjoyable and different. We enjoyed the guides and their terrific service. There was a good balance of city and rural. We took full advantage of our spare (or free) time to walk the streets, back alleys, vegetable markets, etc. to get a feel for daily life of the Chinese in cities and towns. In Xian we danced at 7 in the morning with the seniors and in Chongqing did taichi in the street. The history of the country (and each area) is overwhelming but we absorbed as much as we could. But the people, now, was what we really were interested in seeing. The country (and especially the young people) are bubbling over with enthusiasm and optimism. It was great! We'd gladly recommend Wan-Da to any of your prospective customers.
Burke and Helena W. Calgary, AB (23-day Shangri-la Tour)
Wanted to thank you both for arranging a splendid holiday for us and our great travelling companions. Everything was perfect and went like clockwork – what a beautiful country and lovely people. Such an enriching experience for us.
Christine and Derrick H, Maple Bay, BC (23-day Shangri-la Tour)
Just a quick note to say thank you for a great tour in China. Everything was well planned and we certainly covered a lot of territory! I was very impressed by the quality and knowledge of the tour guides, both the Wan-Da guide, Jade, and the local guides. We all fell in love with Jade. She is certainly a very nice, kind and thoughtful person who really made the tour special. I came home with a different impression of China than I had previously (more positive), found the people very friendly and the sights and scenery most interesting. I would certainly recommend Wan-Da Tours to anyone else contemplating travel to Asia. Thanks again.
Joan D, Calgary AB (18-day China Highlights Tour)
Just to let you know we had a wonderful trip; organization and hotels (were) excellent. You have a treasure in an employee like Jade.
Audrey and Don M ON (18-day China Highlights Tour)
Our trip was outstanding
Bob and Marion C MI (19-day Indochina Discovery)
VERY WELL. The trip was adventurous. Coming from Fairbanks,
which is ringed with huge mountains, I was delighted
with the scenery, but not in awe. At 16,000 feet we hit
white-out conditions for a spell. I would have liked
some oxygen as all of the westerners were left to fend
for themselves whereas all of the Chinese were provided
with tubes to breathe from. But, I heeded your advice
and hydrated. There were moments of light-headedness,
but they soon dissipated. I did run in Lhasa at 13,000
and I was passing pedicabs with waving patrons. I was
getting accustomed to the altitude by then.
Duker, our guide was terrific. We really enjoyed him.
All of the guides were very knowledgeable and very friendly.
At every pick-up point a friendly face was there to greet
us. The hotel accommodations were very good; especially
the hotel in Chengdu. So, all in all, your
company did very well and Amy and I were pleased with
all of your suggestions along the way. Otherwise, we
would not have seen a number of sights we were unfamiliar
Bob H -- Alaska (13-day Tibet by Train)
We wish to thank you for arranging this wonderful tour. It gave us a more than just a thumbnail sketch of China. Our tour group was very compatible and we made many new friends . The attractions selected for visiting could only be described as amazing. China is truly amazing. My favourite attraction was of course the Terra Cotta Army followed by the Great Wall and the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace. Jacquie especially enjoyed the Dragons Backbone and Lijiang. Our tour leader San San was as you described her,a truly delightful lady who is extremely competent in what must be hectic job. The local guides were knowledgeable and pleasant.
George and Jacquie P Elliot Lake, ON (24-day Shangri-la Tour)
writing to thank you for that wonderful trip in the
Indochina. I travel quite a bit and
have never been on a tour that met so many of my expectations.
The hotels were absolutely grand, the food excellent,
the sites and visits to them beautifully organized;
the buses clean and comfortable … I save the
highest praise for our tour leader, shepherd, protector,
organizer and one woman dynamo, Naiwei. She deserves
unlimited praise for making our trip so fabulous and
memorable. She seems to be fearless. She made the trip
into a truly great experience … we all loved
her. I hope to travel with you again.
Joe O Tottenham,
ON (17-day Indochina Discovery Tour)
Indochina tour was wonderful; my only complaint
would be that it was too short. I could have very
easily spent another 3, 4 or 5 weeks with Wan-Da
Tour in countries we visited.
Deborah E St John’s
NL (17-day Indochina Discovery Tour)
We do thank you for a well organized tour and we
are so happy we went. Thanks again...I'd like to
go again on a less strenuous and different vision
of China. It is truly a remarkable country.
B North Vancouver, BC (24-day Shangri-la Tour)
The tour was great! Everything was well organized
and ran smoothly. Local guides were great but it
was really helpful and reassuring to have San San
with us throughout the trip. She is wonderful.
Great job! Thank you for a most memorable first
trip to China.

The Silk Road trip was great! (It) met my expectations

again with Wan-Da Tour Company and I have already and
will continue to recommend you to my friends.
