"China was fun, we enjoyed the tour and the bullet train. Accommodation was great, no issues, the Guides were very informative. Had a blast on the luge at the Great Wall, I think the girls loved that and yes there are great night clubs in Beijing to stop and have a boogie at. The food was fantastic, especially when we were taken to local restaurants and also when we ate with local family in Beijing in the Huatong. Thanks again " — Dannyel, Eva, Ainsley and Michelle, Brisbane, October 2019

"Miko was our guide and was a legend. Three days on the Wall – average of 12km per day and around 120 floors of stairs every day. The days aren’t long but the terrain is gruelling. The first night in the tea-house was a culture shock but was really fun. Miko took us up the Simatai section of the Wall and then took us to BJS… it was very sad to say goodbye. " — Stephen and Jo Schouten, Brisbane, October 2019

"Even though we have been to China we found Getaboutasia’s private tour for Shanghai was fantastic. They had a great guide and everything went so smoothly. Thank you very much for all of your help and assistance with this booking." — Ron and Sue, Adelaide, July 2019

"We have recently returned from our trip to China & Japan and all we can say is AMAZING!!! what a trip, it certainly ticked all the boxes for us and much much more. China’s amazing history, diverse Ethnic minority regions, food, accommodation and spectacular scenery was more than we had hoped for. Japan is equally an amazing country where tradition blends with modern day, the tour was fantastic from start to finish, one week is not enough in Japan, we will definitely be going back. Thanks to you Nicole, all tours went without a glitch and were well organised, we found our hotels and meals of a high quality, all our local guides were helpful, knowledgeable, very friendly and efficient, in other words JUST GREAT. Once again thanks to the assistance and advice from you and Get About Asia, we were able to experienced China’s & Japan’s magnificent spenders and have a great value for money holiday. We highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the real China & Japan. " — Interno, Gallace and Larubina Family, Melbourne, June 2019

"Our second time in Taiwan is drawing to a close and, once again, we have really enjoyed visiting this interesting country after 10 days. The itinerary Getaboutasia put together was varied and interesting and we did visit a number of places off the usual tourist route. It seems that the local team took into consideration this is not our first visit to Taiwan and tried to give us a broader appreciation of nature, history, culture, etc. To us, this was a good and successful approach. The days were comfortably full, but not rushed. The highlights this adventure were Yehliu Park, the Ju Ming sculpture gallery and gardens, Chimei Museum and galleries and Alishan; while the overnight at the Monastery will be remembered for all the right reasons. The sunrise at Alishan was stunning and the following walk through the forest was peaceful and beautiful." — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, April 2019

"Everything went smoothly. During our stay we saw no other foreigners. From the mausoleum we visited the Ming Tombs and Sacred Way - very impressive and older than the ones in Beijing but very similar. Hangzhou’s West Lake is a must see and visit place. The locals really enjoy dancing along the lake foreshore sand. There were groups doing Line dancing to local music, while others were doing more formal dance routines. A great atmosphere. Yellow Mountain is gorgeous! " — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, April 2019

"Our trip was amazingly wonderful. We loved our travels through China. We experienced such diverse culture, history, architecture and scenery. Our guides were excellent...friendly, informative and attentive. Too many highlights to choose just one, but glad you included Tang Dynasty show which was superb. The Wang Family Compound and Pingyao were certainly a photographer’s delight as were the gardens we visited at Beijing’ summer palace and in Suzhou, and the canals in Suzhou and Tongli. We enjoyed Beijing especially the Great Wall and the Temple of Heaven. The immensity of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square and the thousands lined up to visit Mao’s mausoleum were mind boggling, as were the terracotta warriors. Leshan is certainly worth visiting and we were glad we took the day to do so, rather than rush by including the pandas as well in one day. At all times we felt safe and in good, expert hands. Thanks for all the organising you did, Nicole. We would certainly recommend you and your company. " — Mr and Mrs Bradley, Caloundra, April 2019

"We have had a wonderful start to our adventure. Everything has worked really well, the guides and drivers have been great, the hotels better than our expectations. The itinerary has been varied and interesting with a good mix of culture, history and nature. The hotels have all been very comfortable and centrally located. Overall, lunch has been of an extremely high quality and varied and each guide, Jenny, LuLu and David, went out of their way to ensure we were well looked after at all times. Once again, thank for putting together the first part of this adventure, and please pass our thanks on to the local teams. " — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, April 2019

"Had a fantastic time! Hotel is good - fantastic weather yesterday for the Wall - our guide Grace is terrific - it’s less crowded than I thought it would be - smoggy though but fascinating." — Mr Doddridge, Melbourne, March 2019

"China was incredible. Thanks so much for looking after us. Our guide (Grace) was amazing, and we had lots to do each day. The best bit was the wall walking. The children loved it too. I suffered a bit with a height (the children weren't bothered at all) but wouldn't swap it for anything. The views were incredible - an unforgettable experience overall. " — English family, Brisbane, December 2018
