Travel around Yunnan, represented by Renne, proposed a 1st draft of the trip that we, then, amended. The program was fine tuned together with Renee. She finally assigned a driver and different guides, arranged train tickets when necessary and booked the hotels we chose. We paid 70% in advance and the balance during the trip, which seems totally fair. We visited Shangri-la, Lijiang, Shaxi, Dali, Kunming. One week is short but we got a great overview of Yunnan. The selection of restaurants is at 90% spot on, the guides were super competent and friendly. Hiking, visits of Temples, cities old towns, grottos, monasteries... all that was fantastic! Yunnan has an astonishing nature, marvellous landscapes, and overwhelming cultural elements of the so called minorities (Tibetan, Bai, Nahki,...). Don't miss it. We had a great time there. https://www.tripadvisor.cn/Attraction_Review-g298558-d12433289-Reviews-Travel_Around_Yunnan-Kunming_Yunnan.html
I was there with my 66-year-old mother and a 5-year-old baby. Everything was nicely organised. Tour guides were informative, helpful, sweet and enthusiast. They even went out of the way to organise an extra accommodation for us before our train journey from Lijiang back to Kunming free of charge. I couldn't ask for better service. Thank you for a great first time in China. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g298558-d12433289-r620106939-Travel_Around_Yunnan-Kunming_Yunnan.html
Our trip to Yunnan was very successful and certainly met our expectations. The contact with the agency in China and especially with agent Renne was perfect ,,, the trip as a whole and choosing the sites of the trip was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Everywhere we arrived a guide and driver were waiting for us and we did not stop at all. The selection of instructors was excellent and their level of instruction in English was perfect. Dear Renne, We will be happy to participate again in the future on trips to China when you plan and manage them And of course we recommend you and your company to all our acquaintances and friends. https://www.tripadvisor.co.il/ShowUserReviews-g298558-d12433289-r622931445-Travel_Around_Yunnan-Kunming_Yunnan.html#
I'm back home in Thailand now and just want to report what a fabulous time I had. I was in the best of hands with Lee and Tendun (?) my hiking trekking guide. I believe they both provided me with exception service-helpful, attentive,knowledgeable, professional and both went out of their way to make sure I was pleased with and that I enjoyed everything that I was done. So thank you for assembling a top notch team and a terrific itinerary for me. Warm regards, Dan PS-and their English was superb.
Yup.. really enjoyed it.. highly recommended to others. If you don't mine, can you email me the pictures taken by Mr. Joe on that day.. Thank you very much for very good service from start till end.. For the kindly driver Mr.zhang and our professinal guide Joe. Can't wait to tell all my friends. Best regards, Amfeeqa..
From the beginning stages of planning our trip to China with this travel agency (and specifically our travel planner) we knew we were going enjoy this trip of a lifetime. All we needed to do was provide our budget and "wish list" and he worked his considerable magic from there! We ultimately visited Beijing, Luoyang , Xi’an, Lijiang, Kunming , Gulin and Shanghai , enjoying everything from a haunted city tour of Venice at night, a private cooking class in Yangshuo. And, as if that wasn't enough, the tour guides, hotel staff, private driver; they all deserve to be recognized for their individual love and knowledge of their city, warmth, good nature and professionalism. Every site we visited and tour we attended was so very well planned and so very worth the time. We were made to feel as if our agent planned our trip more as if he were doing so for family than clients. ..I can't imagine a better experience!

I was impressed with this travel agency from the first day. I have traveled abroad but never to Asia before. I didn't have a lot of knowledge about China either so I was nervous about trying to plan a trip there on my own. We planed a Yunnan trip for many years and I really looked forward to hiking Tiger Leaping Gorge. My consultant Erin in Travel Around Yunnan is excellent. She was very patient and understood exactly the kinds of sightseeing and locations we wanted to travel. And add White Water Terraces to our package at the last minute and no extra cost. We all agreed that this is one of the best family trips we have ever had.
Travel Around Yunnan planed an excellent honeymoon in Yunnan for us! Our agent listened to everything we wanted out of the trip: hiking, classes, personal tours, a mix of urban and rural experiences. They sought our input on what activities we'd like, but they took care of all the nitty-gritty details. It was clear that they had extensive experience traveling through Yunnan, and the itinerary gave great recommendations for ideas for our free time. Also they kept the trip under budget, too, which meant we could splurge on some fantastic meals and souvenirs.
Travel Around Yunnan is the tour operator for our Golf tour in Yunnan. We stayed in Spring City Golf & Lake Resort Kunming and Jade Snow Mountain Golf Lijiang.The welcome dinner of the resort is delicious. Spring city golf club is the best one in China. We play 2 rouinds golf at here, the golf course has beautiful moutain and lake view. The weather of Kunming is very comforatble and cool compared with humit and hot in Singapore. This is a nice trip and It is worth to play at one of the top ranking golf course of China.

We presented our travel agent--Travel Around Yunnnan with a nice trip to plan and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. This not us but also was our kids (8 & 12y/o) first trip to Yunnan and we wanted to provide them with the charming landscape & variety culture of ethnic groups of Yunnan as well as meet family along the way. We decided to focus on Norther western Yunnan for this trip, limit the duration of the trip to 12 days and stay within a reasonable budget - our agent delivered in spades. My husband was highly skeptical in using a travel coordinator, believing that the many logistical details would be missed; he is now he is a believer! Our agent was always available via mobile to guide us along the way...very impressive. Thank you Travel Around Yunnan for tailoring a wonderful trip for our family, the memories will last us a lifetime.
