Hi all,

Seeking your kind assistance in providing some contacts for a Beijing tour somewhere in March....

Came across some tour packages but i think the prices are highly inflated and they don't cover all the entrance charges and even some food....

Thanks!

There is one in Goodyear court 1, just right infront of Shell after Summit USJ.

My colleague just return from China somewhere with that company :p

Actually I am surprised that they do not include entrance charges. I went with Yangtze Tours (Jln Ipoh) 3 years ago and everything is included (3 meals and all admissions in the itinery). Not enough stomach to even try other food. :D

usually tour agencies will provide you with prices with or no additions, so you do a research and decide which option you prefer and obviously with meals and entrance fees will be more.

Reliance may be costly but they usually include meals and most entrance fees

Just had my Beijing trip last month with this travel agent: http://www.nanfang.com.my/

All meals included + entrance and it was direct flight to Beijing cost RM22XX.00

I rate it 8 out of 10.

- Unadjustable heater on last night stay at Beijing after coming back from ChengDe. Complaints fallen into deaf persons. It was freezing....
- One of meals served....the taste was really bad. All tables left with platefull foods.
- Due to $$ (commission by agent), no time frame given (eventhough suggested so) when we stopped at commission generated shops like FengShui, pearl, crystal..you name it.

Just curious. By any chance you booked this trip at Matta Fair?

Anyway, for China always try to go with a reliable Agent that you know well. DONT try to save a few bucks. It's not worth it. Those who give you on the cheap need to make it back from the factory visits and also by cutting corners on meals, hotels. coaches, tour guide, show hours etc. I have learnt a lot from my tour agent bosses. Just take it from me that it is difficult to imagine the extent they go to cut corners.

Anybody tried Marco Polo Holidays...the tour package to Beijing/Xian is quite tempting.....can't find any tour agents that offer tour to beijing and xian together...

Just a piece of caution advise ....

Before u make ur payment to these travel agency...please confirm with them if the fees are ALL IN. That means...they include everything from entrance fee to food plus inclusive of night tours. It happened to me following a tour package whereby I need to fork out extra if wanted to join the night tour as they says the package if only until 7pm.

Hi, I'm also planning a trip to Beijing and Xian only but haven't been able to find companies who do that trip. Does anyone have any companies to recommend?

Sulynx - Can you please pm me the details of the agent as well?

Thanks!
