Here are a few memories that guests of John Shors Travel made while in China.
What our guests say...
“Reading John Shors' books, and then traveling with him to the places he writes about, brought his stories to life as he shared his insights, knowledge, and passions. It was a life-affirming and exhilarating experience to hear him describe and explain, share and enjoy, his many inspirations. Traveling with him was an adventure and a one-of-a-kind vacation. The variety of activities and the personalized touches John added, as we journeyed together, created memories that I'll cherish for the rest of my life.”
“Traveling with John Shors—who is the most considerate and detail-oriented guide ever—created the most personal, effortless, and worry-free travel experience that I could have asked for. Each day as I enjoyed the land and people around us, I never worried about questions like 'What will we do tomorrow?' or 'Where will we go, or what will we eat, or will we be safe?' because John had taken care of everything. His knowledge and thoroughness allowed me to appreciate each setting in all of its beauty, and I felt like I was walking through his novels, which added a new and unique dimension to my journey. His presence gave our trip an extra, special meaning that would have been impossible to experience without his guidance.”
“I have been on two of John’s wonderful trips, and have traveled with him through Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. I am always impressed with his ability to provide his guests with the perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxing, personal time. I know that so much work goes into his trips, and I appreciate his meticulous planning. I’m already looking forward to our next adventure!”
“Despite having a well-organized and planned itinerary, John was willing to make several adjustments to accommodate individual requests made by members of our group. He also gave us a nice mix of options and was quite flexible with his plans.”
