      The tour itself, the tour manager, and most of the local guides were all top notch. Our local guide for the Shibaozhai 9-story pagoda really did not tell us much about the building and its significance. To be fair, she was heavily involved in trying to keep our group together, a task similar to herding cats. The tour's physical activity rating level of 'moderate' was severely understated. We had several members of our tour that had physical challenges and the distances required in several locations were difficult for them. Our tour manager and local guides did an outstanding job of ensuring wheelchairs and people to push them were available. Our tour manager and guides made sure everything was perfect in the restaurants we visited and explained the contents of every dish. Most of us were not very happy when we learned the there was no flight available from Xi'an to Yichang the day we were to travel. Instead of flying directly, we had to fly to a 'nearby' city, Wuhan, and bus five hours to the cruise ship. Once again our outstanding tour manager used her people skills to teach us Chinese history and keep us occupied on the long trip. When we departed from our hotel in Shanghai to the international airport, our tour manager double and triple checked that all of us, whatever our departure times, made it to and through the flight check-in process. The service provided by Collette not only met, but exceeded my expectations!

      It is very difficult to select a favorite memorable experience when there are so many to chose from. Each of the items on the itinerary had its own wow factor. Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, The Great Wall, and the Terracotta Warriors were all fantastic, but I think my most memorable experience(s) were sharing the lazy-Susan Chinese meals with my fellow travelers after seeing an outstanding attraction. We really bonded as a group.
  • Overall good but bus trip to boat and lost half day on cruise left us sour.

      Pros: Continually updated on flight info and promptly met at airport on arrival and ably assisted with departure. In country facilitation of luggage from hotel to next airport when air travel needed was excellent and highly appreciated. Our tour manager took care of it all and had boarding passes ready for us at airport without the need to check in. Good wireless units with good reception, no static. Good value for dollar. Our tour manager was fantastic and worked very hard to ensure we had a good time, keeping our large group together and ensuring we knew the schedule for each day. Local guides were very good. Cons: Size of group was too large. Scheduling group at Collette should have been aware that for going to cruise we had to fly into a city 5 hours away as the closer city stated only had flights on alternate days. This resulted in our worst experience of the entire trip. The bus used for the 5.5 hour trip was far too small for adults with not enough legroom for even the women to sit straight and the seats themselves were very uncomfortable. Very painful experience. Additionally, we had nothing to eat between 11:30 AM and the following morning as there was no where to stop for anything on the six hour trip. They should have had packed lunches for this leg. The extra travel got us to the cruise ship at about 11:40 PM wasting all of what should have been our first day aboard. Although they advertise a side trip on traditional "pea" boats, this is no longer done but rather you are taken up the gorge on motorized boats with seating. While we had no problem with "moderate" exertion, it was challenging or too much for a few of the group. Some mornings were very early with a 4 AM start to the day needed once. First hotel was excellent and others were just acceptable. While we appreciate the effort put in to ensure we had very good meals (which we did), it would have been nice to have had restaurants closer to the hotel as the bus rides to dinner were often overly long (yes, we realize this is traffic in China, particularly Beijing but this might be taken into account). Yes, We would recommend Collette to friends provided they were well aware that the groups are quite large.
