“My husband and I went on a tour to China with Yao, including the Yangtze River tour.  Everything about it was a wonderful experience. He had it so well organized that at every stop people were there waiting for us; our food was delicious and ready, and our buses were on time. I would, and have, recommended this tour company. It far exceeded our expectations! You will not be disappointed.”​

“My daughter’s experience in China was amazing! The chance to see students in their school environment is worth hours of lectures and videos. My daughter’s love for the language and desire to learn it faster was multiplied by being able to see other kids her age interact with her. We also saw so much history and culture that literally came to life. Seeing the Terra Cotta Warriors in person was mind-blowing. We had a fantastic experience and can’t wait to take our other children who are learning Chinese.”

“Our family traveled to China with Great Sea International with four children ages 4 to 10. We had a marvelous time! The children still refer excitedly to that vacation in our conversations. Mr. Yao, who directed our tour, often took our six-year-old boy by the hand and gave him a private tour along with the group. That personal touch made all the difference to us. This tour of mainland China was memorable, multifaceted, and never boring or tedious. I would unconditionally recommend any tour directed by Mr. Yao.”

“Our tour to China with Great Sea International was more than fabulous! Words cannot express what an opportunity this was for my son and I. From the challenge of climbing the Great Wall to learning the history of the people during our rickshaw ride in Hutong area. We met a sweet family on our rickshaw ride and my son held a pet cricket as well as used the Chinese he’s learned at school! We will definitely be booking with Great Sea International again!

“I trusted Yao to get me and 30 students in and out of Tibet. Tough trips require expert guides-Yao is the best you can get.”
