I didn't now what to expect but it was very good.


Our guide was very knowledgable and his English was very good.  The food on the ship was perfect.  Optional shore excursions were good although I did not do the Peking Duck and wish I had done Summer Palace instead of Peking Opera.


Viking handled all our transfers and luggage and it was very easy even with all the internal flights.  We did do the extension after to Guilin and Hong Kong and I was glad we did.
