We have travelled extensively and usually arrange our trips independently. However when we decided to go to China we thought it would be better to join a tour. After researching many companies we decided on Distant Journeys as their itinerary and flight options seemed to fit our requirements and we liked the idea of their freedom days which allowed us a little more independence. We were a little concerned that this was their first trip to China but we need not have worried as apart from a couple of really minor issues everything went very smoothly and our guides and hotels were all excellent. We had a wonderful holiday seeing some amazing sights and learning a lot about China. We feel we must also comment on Distant Journey’s excellent customer service. From our first phone call to their courtesy calls both before and after our holiday we felt we received very personal service. Well done Distant Journeys – we will certainly have no hesitation in using your services again and recommending your company to our friends .
