Our customized tour of Yunnan province for 16 days far exceeded our expectations. It was a fascinating journey through some of the most spectacular scenery I have ever seen. There is a lot of unique geography and interesting ethnic groups throughout the region. We traveled through many areas of relatively remote mountains and river gorges. Really off the beaten track! But even on somewhat treacherous roads, we were comfortable and felt secure. One reason we chose Edward Adventures was because they were able to provide us with one guide and driver that would be responsible for us the whole trip. The high level of service and consistency of this approach was really exceptional and very tailored to our preferences. We felt like a family friend was showing us around his home territory. The meals were really something special! Our guide knew all the local specialties in each place we visited and we tried them all. It seemed he handpicked our food for us and made sure of the best quality everywhere we went. Our hotels were very comfortable. The most impressive thing about our tour was probably the way our guide seemed to always know where to go to get away from the crowds, to see the most amazing scenery and interesting sites in a very personalized way. And the many Chinese people he introduced to us everywhere were so friendly and warm. We didn’t even feel much like tourists travelling with him! It was really a fabulous trip that we will always remember! Read more

Edward helped the two of us plan a two week trip to fascinating places and people in China. Edward took us on a cultural and scenic adventure. The scenery was wonderful. The people were so very hospitable, and the food great. We never felt that we were on a typical touristy tour but rather that we were with an old friend learning all about his country and having a trip of a lifetime. We still keep in contact with Edward and cherish our new friendship. Read more

We did a 3 week tour from Lijiang to Chengdu ( 3 of us ) with Edward as our guide and driver. It was a most memorable experience with Edward intimate knowledge of the best scenery , the best cultural experience and local customs and events. Wherever we went we got an insight into the local way of life and tried all the local food specialties. We also did some trekking and were taken to some really special places such as Thousand Tortoise Mountain, Tiger Leaping Gorge and Yading Nature Reserve. The scenery is really spectacular and for us fortunately also were the wildflowers. We have previously toured in Western China and had a fantastic time but Edward Adventures provided us with a far superior experience from start to finish. Read more

Local ethnic people, happy to share, ready to help
