We just returned from the Chinaspree.com 14 day China's Best Treasures tour. I have questioned the validity of testimonials from companies over concern that they were written by the tour company and not individuals who had actually taken the tours so I did not put full faith in those on the Chinaspree website but they ended up being correct. I have traveled a lot over the years and this was the best trip that I have ever taken. The tour guides, hotels, itinerary, airlines, and food were all exceptional with not one complaint. The small size of the Chinaspree tours was extremely critical to the success of the trip. There was no time wasted dealing with large groups. There was intimate contact with the tour guides greatly enhancing the experience. The days were packed with activities and no time was wasted. We went all the way to China to experience everything and we did. You truly wonder how they can give you everything they did for the price. I will definitely take another Chinaspree tour at some future time as there are many other areas of China to see. This was written by a true traveler who prior to finding Chinaspree on the internet did not know of their existence so it is unbiased. Gerald Karpman Camarillo, CA

Five stars-great itinerary, awesome guide, every day was filled with a new adventure, but not overwhelming. The hotels and cruiseship were all gorgeous. I was journaling and every day was so full of new sights, sounds, tastes and history...I never was able to keep up.

This is by far the most amazing trip I have ever taken. The guides ,drivers and accommodations were all superior. The experiences could not have been more varied from busy cites to one on one personal visits to out of the way places/people. It was like being in a personal documentary of the history, food, culture,beautiful places and people of the truly amazing country of Vietnam a truly five star plus experience

Great tour. Wonderful guides, amazing sites, perfect logistics. This was the 4th tour with World Spree and it lived up to the standard set by the previous tours to China, Indochina, and India. I was pleased to see a tour in South America and intend to take advantage of the Ecuador tour in the future. Well done World Spree.

China Spree provided an excellent tour of many great sights of China. Superb hotels, very good restaurants, on time transportation and our wonderful tour guide Jo. She was very knowledgeable and caring and coordinated the tour so that it ran very smoothly. The price was superior considering all the things that were included, i.e. hotels, transportation, meals, theater, and the museums and places visited.

Incredible! This is my 3rd trip to China with Chinaspree/ Worldspree. The selected itinerary did not leave anything out! We saw and became a part of the fascinating Chinese culture. It was amazing and the best run and organized tour that I have ever taken! The national tour guide, Jim, went above and beyond to be sure that everyone was having a great experience. He was the best!

WOW ! This was an outstanding trip. This was our third trip with World Spree and we plan to join another group soon. The accommodations were excellent! The food delicious ! The travel van was clean and comfortable! The Guide was beyond Outstanding. We learned so much about a culture that was unfamiliar to us and we respect the presentation of the different locals.

Our group of 19 travels had a wonderful time in China on the 15 day China's Best Treasures tour and Huangshan extension. Our national guide Jo Zhou was exceptional. She worked her magic and figured out ways that one member in our group who was injured and in a wheelchair and crutches was able to do so many things while there (Great Wall, Li River, restaurants, Longsheng, etc.). She ordered a camera battery and poncho for the rain for the wheelchair person and had it shipped to the hotel overnight, she spent some of her free time helping us find restaurants to eat and how to use the subway and all in such a caring and thoughtful manner. She became part of our family. The hotels were excellent and the many of the meals were really good. The sites and pace of the tour was perfect. I highly recommend World Spree for touring China especially if you get a guide as great as Jo.

My husband and I have participated in a total of 4 WorldSpree tours with our April trip to Peru being the latest and one of the most satisfying and enjoyable. Our guide, Washington, was professional, informed, witty and attentive. His trainee, Edward was also very attentive to each of us in our group of 15, including 2 younger children. Some members of our group did suffer some issues with regard to the altitude and Washington and Edward both showed great concern for their well being and comfort. When reviewing other tour companies, I noticed that many offered a similar or even lower price, but after digging deeper into the itineraries, I noticed that WS offered many more excursions as part of the overall price. Other companies followed the same general tour itineraries, but excursions to some archeological sites and/or villages, were optional and required additional money. We especially enjoyed visiting the 4 villages on the WS tour, including the one village which is sponsored by WS. It was absolutely enchanting to disembark from our spacious and air conditioned bus and be greeted by the villagers, dressed in their local colorful garments (including young children), singing a welcome. It was also a welcome relief to find a modern bathroom and kitchen facilities from which they served us a delicious and healthy lunch. The visit o the floating village on Lake Titicaca and the second village on the shore of Lake Titicaca were also huge surprises and just delightful. The ride on the colorful reed boat was a real treat. In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed this trip and will continue to recommend WS to our adventurous friends.

If you had 6 stars that what you would get!!!!!

My husband and I found the Peru tour to be excellent. It was our first World Spree trip and we enjoyed the opportunity to interact with local communities, excellent accommodations in good locations, appropriate amount of free time, carefully sequenced transitions from lower elevations to higher elevations, combination of urban and natural settings and experiences. The trip was excellent value and we intend to participate in another World Spree tour.

My wife and I enjoyed the trip very much. There was never a dull moment - thanks to a very attentive guide, Tuyen. He must have paid much attention to detail to have each event flows so smoothly. He included some very interesting and unexpected stops that were very informative. Tuyen's knowledge of the history of his country increased my knowledge base. He also interjected some of his personal stories, which made what ever he was talking about more authentic. The choices of locations to visited were excellent. A great trip and an excellent guide who took his job personally!!

I really cannot say enough positive about this tour. First, I should say that I previously lived overseas continuously for over three years, and that India was the 44th foreign country I have visited in the last 35+ years of travel. When I travel internationally, I typically book flights and some hotels, but I do book tours in advance. Instead, I take a guide book, have a general plan of what I wish to do, pay for specific tours in-country, and make changes as I go along. India is not a country for which even I would have attempted this the first time, so the World Spree tour was a good way to start. Our hotels and their food offerings were first rate, and included both Indian and Western food of high quality. In such an environment, one appreciates a finer hotel after encountering such a different culture during the day's activities. Our guide (Somnath Bose) was spectacular in that he was full of information on the major tourist sites we visited, and could answer seemingly any question we posed to him. He also added additional dimensions to our tour in his descriptions of Indian life, including sharing some of his personal experiences to illustrate his points. We were also introduced to all levels of Indian society, so I came away with a comprehensive understanding of this country. (I would go so far as to say that one might consider adjusting tour dates to be sure he was the tour guide, as I understand he is highly ranked among all Indian tour guides.) At the end of the tour, I delayed my departure for a week, flew to Tamil Nadu and later to Kerala, and found myself well-prepared to function on my own by that time. I have rarely taken a tour that left me so satisfied on so many levels. World Spree: You do a great job, and thank you for allowing me the freedom to be on my own for an additional week at the end of the tour.

I highly recommend World Spree. I have gone on two tours. World Spree offers first class accommodations, wonderful little extras, fabulous guides and an in-depth cultural experience. One is offered a lot for what the trip costs. It always amazes me when comparing to other tour groups. I am looking forward to my next World Spree tour!

This package is the real deal. I had never used them before and was somewhat skeptical as to how the price could be so reasonable. World Spree has put together an amazing program, that helped me to understand India and to really love the people. As the United States, we have daily dealings with people in/from India because of their immense work force, here locally and abroad. This trip provided insight into the culture and history of the people. Our tour leader could not have been more knowledgeable or more helpful. All of our needs were taken into consideration. The hotels were fantastic, the local tour guides for the tiger park were terrific at finding the places where the tigers might be, there was just enough time for shopping without overdoing it - this package has it all and I would highly recommend it for anyone that loves adventure and learning new things.

We loved this tour!! We are older travelers (68 and 69 respectively) and have traveled fairly extensively around the world, generally on an independent basis. However, we found that your tour afforded us an excellent opportunity to see and better understand the sites at each stop than we ever could have done as independent travelers. This tour of both Vietnam and Cambodia is very comprehensive and rich, and well-paced. Our guides (Tour Managers) Quang and Proney were absolutely the best. They made each site come alive.
