We have just returned from an excellent trip with Viking to China. The organisation and all arrangements were amazing and seemed to happen without us feeling that we were being 'herded about'. We are not used to travelling with a group and were slightly apprehensive but feel it was the only way to see so much in such a short space of time. My only complaint is the excessive amount of food we ate BUT we do realise that most people want 3 meals a day and it is possible to be disciplined! Also we found the advice about taking dollars was not really helpful as we needed local currency most of the time. Overall an excellent 2 week trip and we wish we had added on the optional extra to Hong Kong. One thing I would have liked to know before booking was how much would be expected for tipping guides etc. This was not evident until we received the itinerary and even then we were not to know how many different guides and drivers there would be.
