Testimonies

Great overall experience. The guides were reliable, very knowledgeable on Vietnamese history and always helpful. Our children loved the beach in Nha Trang and we had an amazing experience at Vinpearl, riding on the cable car. The trip in Ho Chi Minh City taught us a lot about the history and cultures. Most of the arrangement was impressive, especially the transportations.

It was a fantastic trip and everything went as scheduled without any issues. Other than one day of rain in Beijing, it was perfect. My compliments to Selective Tours for a “Job Well Done”.
All four guides were very good but two of them, Helen in Xi’an and Tracey in Shanghai, stood out as excellent and they are to be congratulated and commended for a “Job Very Well Done”. The drivers in both Beijing and Shanghai also were standouts with very safe driving skills, very polite and courteous, and always on time when they were to meet and pick us up.
All of the hotels were very helpful with getting us rooms with shower stalls since my wife had her arm in a sling having just undergone surgery on her hand.
An excellent trip and I would highly recommend it and Selective Tours to others.

I really enjoyed the beautiful sceneries of Sapa and the nice restaurants in central city of Saigon. Almost everything was just as described in the itinerary, while the tour guides showed great enthusiasm and were truly informative. I am delighted with the arrangement from Selective Tours!
Mr. Rieke  Vietnam Discovery  
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an experience. Unbelievable, hard to find words to describe our time in China. The reason we all had such a wonderful time was because of your planning, excellent itinerary and tour arrangements. All the tour guides were wonderful especially Rosie in Beijing, nothing was any trouble for her and she was such a great help when we had to catch the train from Beijing to Xian. We hope to one day travel again to China and see more.

“I was a little nervous about travelling to China initially but having travelled with Selective Tours, I would now have no qualms about going back. Everywhere we visited was amazing – especially the Yungang caves and the hanging monastery in Datong, the Qiao family house in Pingyao ancient town, Terracotta Warriors in Xian and our guide was very helpful and understanding with wonderful historic information. With the pre-tour organisation, our amazing tour guides and manager, we feel very secure in everything you do.”

The arrangements of my trip to Vietnam by Selective Tours were excellent. I had a magnificent driver and the selection of accommodation and activities were fantastic. Everything went according to the itinerary and the tour guide was enthusiastic and full of competency. Vietnamese food is amazing!

“We travelled to China with Selective Tours on their Best of China Tour, visiting Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin and Shanghai. We would certainly recommend Selective Tours to others. We found the tour to be very well organised with good information and set at a good pace. We had enough time to look around and appreciate the various cities but not so much that we got bored and were left wondering how to fill our time. The itinerary had designed well and we visited very interesting places. A highlight of the tour was Guilin. China truly is an amazing country”.

I have recently returned from your Yangtze River and Culture Delights tour. And all I can say is thank you the entire tour was so much better than I could have possibly imagined. I do not know where to start, the guides and drivers were sensational and the included activities were made even better by these wonderful people their extensive knowledge of their respective city’s just made it so much more exciting, I think I learnt more about China’s history in my 13 days than I did in the 13 years I spent at school. (even though that was a while back).
The accommodation was first rate and everybody everywhere went out of their way to make our experience amazing. The food was exceptional on all occasions, and the Yangtze is not to be missed. I could go on with so much more but will just finish in saying that if in doubt about which tour company to use for your China experience don’t compromise go with Selective you will not be disappointed.

“My hubby & I did a private tour in March/ April. 23 days covering Beijing, Datong, Xian, Luoyang, Shanghai, Guilin, Yangshou & Hong Kong. The benefit of going with this company is that the trip will run with a minimum of 2 (We were booked with a different company which cancelled our trip as it didn't get the minimum of 6)
the organization was great. Guides spoke good English & were very helpful, hotels were 3 star and although not fancy were generally clean. Breakfasts were a mixture of Chinese & Western, something for all tastes. We tried various modes of transport all of which were fine. It would have wasted quite a lot of time if we had needed to organise our own transport due to the language difficulties but our guides did it all. We did tip guides and drivers (as recommended) but didn't mind doing this as they did a good job. All in all a relaxing holiday. We would definitely recommend Selective Tour based on our experiences.”

I just wanted to extend my sincerest thanks for all your assistance in coordinating the most amazing holiday in China for Melinda and I. I arrived home on Thursday and have been singing your company's praises ever since.
I especially wanted to put in a good word for two of the guides we had in China. I found Sandy (Xi'an) and Sting (Guilin/Yangshuo) to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful. They really couldn't do enough for us. Sting, especially, was a stand-out. He was exceptional. He suggested a number of optional extras for us, which we gladly attended, and they ended up being highlights of our trip. It also meant that he and the driver were with us from early morning until late at night, exceeding our expectations of a tour guide. Overall, we were extremely grateful for the assistance of all our guides and drivers and appreciative of their flexibility with our needs. They were all great and well chosen by your company. Our Hotel accommodation (and Yangshuo Mountain Retreat) was excellent through-out the tour.
Thank you once again for all your assistance. I would not hesitate in recommending your company.

“Our guides, Long and Chung were fantastic. They were friendly and helpful at all times. Drivers were courteous. Vehicles were clean and comfortable. We were very happy with hotels; they were luxurious and centrally located. We were kept constantly on the move but thoroughly well organised and lots of fun. Selective Tours did an excellent job. Thanks. “
Cathie & Carmel, VIC   9 Days Best of Vietnam  
“We have come back from our 12 days Vietnam tour. Thanks for organising this wonderful trip. Everything was well organised without any hiccups. Itinerary is well balanced between culture/history and natural scenery / beach. We had a great experience in Vietnam. Tour guides are helpful and flexible, they went out of their ways to adjust itinerary to suit our preferences. Thanks to staff at Selective Tours again!”
