Kris, United States

I contacted WoY based on other TripAdvisor reviews and I am glad I did. Having never been to the Yunnan region (and this was our first trip to China) I had no idea about the travel times or attractions. After reviewing their website, I sent them a suggested itinerary. I was contacted within 24 hours (being in the Eastern time zone of the US I would send them an email in the evening and routinely have a reply when I got up in the morning). Christy gave me great advice and helped me narrow the scope of our trip to what was manageable . Our excursion from Kunming to the rice terraces near Yuanyang went off smoothly and pretty much exactly as scheduled. The only glitch was that the advertised 5.5 to 6-hr travel time by car wound up being more like 8 or 9 hours because it happened to me Tomb Sweeping week and everyone was getting out of Kunming for the country. Nevertheless, the tour guide and driver were proficient and we had no problems. The lodging WoY booked for us was splendid and overlooked the rice terraces. Back in Kunming, we enjoyed the Dynamic Yunnan show on their recommendation and are grateful for the suggestion - it was terrific. I would definitely recommend using WoY to help organize a first trip to this beautiful region. Read more

WoY were very good we were in China and our bank failed to pay balance. WoY still allowed us to carry on with trip and helped us to sort out missed payment. Waking and staying in Shaxi was the highlight of our trip. Walked up the mountain to a temple then to another temple where there are wild monkeys. I would not recommend staying in Lijiang. Stay in nearby ancient village. Read more

Corrine, Cambodia

It was a very last minute decision to go for vacation in Yunnan and I contacted WoY. Somehow, they managed to organise everything - hotels, domestic air tickets and tour guides within a week (3 days actually, considering that they had 2 public holidays that week) and I flew out with my parents a week later. Everything went smoothly, hotels booked were great, all meals were included and even when we decided not to go to their pre-arranged dinner location, they deducted the meals from the overall cost. We could also decide what we wanted to eat, particularly in Kunming and Lijiang where we tried some really good restaurants from the guide's recommendation and they made all the arrangements. We had different tour guides for different legs of the trip but all of them were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. My dad has some difficulty climbing up and down steps and every guide or driver who observed the difficulty all volunteered to hold his arm whenever they are around him. That attention to detail is simply going above and beyond. Chinese language was generally not a problem for us though it's not my first language. We even learnt the different ethnic ways of addressing each other. In terms of itinerary, some of the highlights were: 1. the Dali three pagodas - climbing up hill to see 11 Temples sequentially was pretty amazing. Every time you thought it was the highest temple, there's always another behind it. 2. Old towns in Dali and Lijiang - full of culture so try and stay within the old town. 3. The tiger leaping gorge - honestly if you can climb to see the 11 Temples in Dali, you can do this. We went when the water levels are seasonally low so it wasn't as majestic but still good. 4. Shangri la - just an experience in itself. The altitude is considered high for us and all of us had nose bleed every day we were there due to the dry air. We were however prepared with high altitude pills and the guide even took us to buy oxygen cans. It might look weird or funny but honestly, it made us breathe easier, particularly at night when you are in the hotel room. Alternatively, consider bringing a humidifier for the room. 5. Kunming Dynamic Yunnan show - I was so glad WoY recommended this as an add on. In my view, a must see if you like stage cultural performance! Last but not least, a big thank you to Cici Li - my travel consultant from WoY who made this trip possible. I have lots of pictures to remember this last minute trip and very happy parents!
