Testimonials Optional Extension
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you everyone at Nexus Holidays for organising a magnificent China Sampler tour. The tour exceeded my expectations in every way. It was operated by very efficient local and national guides, who were both experienced and helpful. The level of accommodation was exceptional in most instances and the food was great. The optional tours were highly enjoyable and I would give this trip a full 5 star rating. I will have no hesitation in recommending it to everyone contemplating travelling to China. Thank you for this most memorable experience.(Janette. August 8, 2015 at 10:01)
My wife and I are just back from the 11 day tour of China. What a fantastic experience it was too with an interesting program taking in many great sights and a ride on the Maglev too. Our Nexus guides were brilliant and nothing was too much for them. The hotels were of an excellent standard and the food was very good and very plentiful. I would recommend Nexus to all my friends and am very grateful for the experience of visiting China in springtime when all the trees are blossoming. I look forward to my next Nexus trip.
