"A great way to start the New Year. To see and hear a 360 degrees fireworks from the top of the hill was great. The tour was well organised and ably led by Harry as usual. The food was wonderful and the scenery was spectacular."

"A great trip I am unlikely to forget... would love to go again with you!"
Simon Egerton, Nursery Manager – Early Years Education in China

Zhang is an outstanding guide, who gave us a marvellous insight into his country’s history and culture. It was clear that the seemingly effortless organisation was the result of a lot of experience and hard work."

"Being part of a Master Travel tour is like entering another time dimension. So much is achieved in a short time, yet there is no feeling of being on a conveyor belt. We were not just tourists, we were part of a group of friends being led by knowledgeable and engaging tour leaders. We were shown things that others never see and it was an immense privilege."

Wendy Farrer - Tibet, Shangri La and Yunnan
"Trip was particularly interesting as most visits to China never experience the contacts and awareness of the ethnic minorities. Including Tibet was an added bonus. The Totala Palace is unique in the world and should not be missed. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. I had been to China ten times before this visit, but this was so special."
Chris Farrer - Tibet, Shangri La and Yunnan
"The itinerary was extremely well planned, the hotels were comfortable and very well located, the food was fantastic and all travel arrangements worked like clockwork. We enjoyed meeting the local guides who were enthusiastic and very well informed – they were a credit to their country. We would recommend this trip unreservedly to any professional colleagues. Medicine in China is at a turning point and we were privileged to be able to experience this first hand."
David and Lindsey Shuttleworth, Doctor and Practice manager – Medicine in China
"It was a fascinating trip, full of contrasts from the beautiful orange coloured land, the lush green of the rice fields and the bright colours of the chameleons... It was an amazing trip of a lifetime and we were able to help in a small way with our small gifts of medical supplies to clinics."
Lorna Murray, Retired Education Officer – Madagascar
