Shanghai is an amazing mix of modern and historical China. Our guide Kris was great and very flexible when it came to completing the itinerary which was helpful considering the poor weather + visibility on the first day when we were supposed to visit Shanghai tower. Walking along the river front (bund) area was a big highlight for us.More

Shanghai trip for Mihail
Me and my wife had a trip to China and part of it we spent in Shanghai. Our private tour guide was Kris Lee and I have to say he was very much up for the task. His knowledge of China's history was quite comprehensive and more than I could have expected. If only I could have that kind of memory. His level of English exceeded my expectations and that of course served us very well not only in understanding the Chinese culture, traditions, way of life, etc, but also allowed us to order meals, drinks, make purchases, ask whatever questions coming to mind, making us comfortable to experience the place without the inherent language issues we could have had otherwise. All in all Kris Lee is certainly an asset for any travel agency from ChinaMore

Zhangjiajie/ Spectacular scenery and great taste of local culture.
Zhangjiajie immediately went to the top of our list of natural attractions in the world. The landscapes are fascinating and unique. We really valued the guidance by China Highlights. Roger was good accommodating to our needs during the planning phase. In the actual trip Linda provided us with knowledgeable and passionate guidance. She was very personable and respectful at the same time. Her advice was critical to be able to see so much - as in every park or area there are multiple buses to move around. She showed us the best spots at the best time.Local restaurant selection was good. One piece of advice- make sure to specify how much spice you enjoy in your food. Local food can be quite spicy.More

Private trip in Beijing and Luoyang
We spent 3 days in Beijing with Helen as our guide. We went to TianAnMen, Forbidden City and MuTianYu Great Wall to name a few. Helen took great care of us and is very attentive as I travel with my 60+ years old parents, from asking whether we need restroom breaks to making sure that our lunch were all according to our dietary needsMore

Profesional and detail oriented
My last stop was Shanghai. I was greeted by Martin. It is pretty much a 1 day itinerary there. Martin took me to all the stops and introduced me to a cool tea house not on the agenda. With the extra time we had we also stopped Starbuck’s Reserve which is the largest in the world. Martin also helped me make reservations at the Old Jazz Club at the Fairmont Hotel.More

Amazing trip in China
Guides were Mark in Beijing, Jenny in Xi’an, Frank in Guilin/Yangshuo and Kris and Peter in Shanghai. I can’t say enough how wonderful each of them were to us. They worked very hard to give us a five star tour. The drivers were five star as well. Our hotels were very clean and wonderful with a great breakfast buffet each morning. Our guides would take us to a great locals place for lunch each day and then dinner we were on our own, but each guide would give us fantastic places to go. I know without a doubt our trip was exceptional due to booking with Liberman at China Highlights Tour Company.More

China Highlights is Excellent
Jenny was the tour guide in Xian, showed us the terracota warriors found in 1974 by a farmer behind a mountain masoleum, with projected ongoing excavations for next 100 years. Made clay model terracota warriors.Jenny is very enthusiastic and bubbly, helped us all the way, from picking up us from train station to dropping us off at the airport.More

Datong, China's best kept secret!
I've had multiple guides for different locations with China highlights but Joy was exceptional. She was easy to talk to, super knowledgeable and also amazingly organised. When visiting the Yungang grottoes not only did I get wonderful explanations of the symbolism of the cave carvings and history of the art styles but Joy even prepared a notepad for the commemorative stamps available there so that I had a souvenir to tax home with me.More

Welcome to Delhi, the capital of India. In this city, the modern culture of the 21st century harmoniously combines with hundreds of ancient cultures.
Upon your arrival, your guide will greet you at the airport and escort you to the hotel. Spend some time on your own for the rest of the day to adjust to the new time zone or wander around your hotel.
Start the day with a visit to one of the largest mosques in India: Jama Masjid. Founded in 1650, Jama Masjid is as popular as Mecca in Saudi Arabia and the Al-Azhar Mosque in Egypt. Every year, tens of thousands of tourists come here as a pilgrimage.
Once done, hop onto a rickshaw and travel around the Chandni Chowk area, where you will get a real feel of the local way of life in Old Delhi.
Next, visit Qutub Minar, marked as a world heritage site by UNESCO. This will be followed by a tour of Humayun's Tomb in the afternoon, where you can appreciate the glory of the Mughal Dynasty in India.
Spend 4 or 5 hours on the road, transferring from Delhi to Agra. You can take a nap on the way or enjoy the scenery on both sides of the road.
Reach Agra by noon and go for lunch; then relax in your hotel for a while.
Later, visit Mehtab Bagh and enjoy sunset views of the Taj Mahal.
Mehtab Bagh lies on the banks of the Yamuna River and is directly opposite the Taj Mahal. Due to its special location, it provides a great place for tourists to enjoy a majestic view of the Taj Mahal, away from the usual crowd.
Get up early and visit the Taj Mahal. The beauty of the grand mausoleum doesn't just come from its remarkable architectural form but also from the epic love story between Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan. Today, the Taj Mahal is not only known world-over as a classical monument, but it has also become a symbol of love.
Return to your hotel, have breakfast, and head to Agra Fort, which is also known as Red Fort. It was named so because the palaces and walls are all made of red sandstone.
Next, head to Itmad-ud-Daula's tomb. Compared with the Taj Mahal, it's small and simple, but its building style deeply influenced by the construction of the Taj Mahal.
Day 5 will commence with a road trip to Jaipur, which will take around 5 hours from Agra. Stop at a village close to Jaipur, where you will find the most unique stepwell: the Chand Baori. It is an ancient well built in the 9th century, and a popular dating spot for locals. Then head to Jaipur and have a short rest after checking in to your hotel.
Invite your loved ones to have a romantic dinner at Amer Fort. The lights in the yard sparkle like stars falling from the sky.
Today you'll visit Amer Fort. Sheesh Mahal is the most famous pavilion here, with countless small mirrors on the palace walls, which shine brilliantly under sunlight. Just a little candlelight can reflect a thousand points of flickering light, making it a unique spectacle to behold.
Next, head off to City Palace, from where you can capture panoramic views of the city. The palace has been converted into a museum of furniture and royal finery. Around the courtyard, the four gates represent the four seasons: the Green Gate represents spring, the Lotus Gate represents summer, the Peacock Gate represents autumn, and the Rose Gate represents winter — each having its own characteristics. Afterward, visit Jantar Mantar, and you'll be impressed to learn of the wisdom of the ancient Indians.
In the morning, your driver will take you to Bikaner (5–6 hours), to visit Junagarh Fort. It is perhaps the most well-preserved and ornately decorated forts in Rajasthan. The fort blends Indian and Muslim architectural styles. Explore the fort to gain insights into the glory of the ancient kingdom.
Transfer to Jaisalmer in the morning by car (5–6 hours). The local area is famous for desert yellow stone houses and golden castles. In ancient times, it was a commercial road in India and Central Asia. It was once prosperous and called the "Golden City."
Go back to your hotel, take rest for a while, and then head to Vyas Chhatri to catch a romantic sunset view.
Visit the spectacular Jaisalmer Fort in the morning. It has a long history and is one of the oldest castles in Rajasthan. It was built by Jaisala, a Rajput ruler, in 1156. Successive rulers also built fortifications for it, and it witnessed several wars with the Mughal dynasty in Delhi and the Rasol dynasty in Jodhpur. Visit Salim Singh ki Haveli (house of the tyrannical prime minister of the Rajputana region in the 18th century) and Patwon ki Haveli (House of the Brocade Merchants), which is the largest and most elaborate of the famous havelis (palaces) of Jaisalmer. You will also visit Gadisar Lake, an artificial lake that was an important source of water in the past.
In the evening, you will explore the sand dunes of Jaisalmer on a desert safari. You will take a camel ride through the endless rippling sand dunes to watch the sunset.
After the safari, enjoy dinner by a bonfire and local folk dance on the sand dunes.
Today your driver will take you to Jodhpur in the morning (5 hours). You will have free time after arrival, so you can choose to rest at the hotel or roam around locally.
Mehrangarh Fort, also known as Sun Fort, is one of the largest castles in India. These palaces themselves are exquisite art treasures. Secondly, because the castle was carved out from the mountains, the internal palaces are on different planes and connected by corridor stairs.
The next attraction is Jaswant Thada. It is a cenotaph in milky white marble, built in honor of Maharaja Jaswant Singh and symbolizing the glory of the former rulers of Jodhpur. Jaswant Thada is a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can get excellent views of the Mehrangarh Fort from here, and also gaze upon the entire city of Jodhpur.
After lunch, your guide will show you around the area with blue houses. Jodhpur is a gorgeous city in the desert. Houses on both sides of the street, regardless of size, rich or poor, are painted blue, reflecting the blue sky above. Walking through the alleys of Jodhpur, you will find a more colorful India, as dazzling as women's headscarves.
On Day 12, you will be transferred to Udaipur. Pay a visit to Ranakpur Jain Temple on your way. The temple features 1,444 fascinating marble pillars lining the structure. Each pillar is carved with a different pattern, showcasing the structure's unique craftsmanship.
Udaipur is hailed as the most romantic city in India, with the gorgeous Lake Pichola in its centre.
Visit the City Palace in the morning. The majestic City Palace is the largest palace in Rajasthan, offering great views of the lake and the entire city from its rooftop. The main portion of the palace has been converted into the City Palace Museum, which houses a variety of historical artifacts. A visit to the palace in the morning will leave you mesmerized, as the entire palace appears becomes dazzling in the morning light. The palace houses furniture and decorations from the whole state of Rajasthan, and even Persia and Europe.
The next attraction is the Jagdish Temple, which is not too far from City Palace. The largest temple in Udaipur, the walls and exterior of the Jagdish Temple are replete with fine carvings.
Next, take a romantic boat trip on Lake Pichola and visit Jag Niwas and Jag Mandir, situated on an island in the center of the lake.
In the evening, enjoy a candlelit dinner by the serene Lake Pichola, for a romantic end to your memorable honeymoon trip.
After a delicious breakfast at your hotel, you will be transferred to the airport to take your flight back home.
