    Very expensive and disappointing tour of the Fujian Tulou
    Odyssey48537127639
    , Jan 2020
    This tour cost $298 per person. It was a three hour drive and then only 1.5 hours seeing three Tulou. We saw only one Tulou from the 19th century. The most important Tulou were only 15km away, but not included in the tour. The English speaking guide Jane could barely speak English and conveyed less information than you can get in 15 minutes by reading the Wikipedia entry. The tour includes a “traditional Hakka lunch”. But the lunch is not in the Hakka village. It is in a restaurant. You can get much better Hakka food in any major city in China. Then the guide tells me that I can’t order a vegetable dish since our lunch allowance is only 60 RMB per person. That’s less than $10. She said I would have to pay an additional 40 RMB. The chicken dish ordered by the guide was inedible. Skin and bones. That was the last straw and I called Silk Road Tours to complain. The Chinese tourists in comparison were having a feast. After I called to complain, the guide said I did not have to pay 40RMB and that I could order another dish. I asked for shrimps and the guide said they were all out. I ended up with tofu that probably cost less than $5. She asked if I wanted to see another Tulou. I said of course I want to see everything important that can be seen in one day. So she stopped at a 20th century Tulou that did not require an entrance ticket. I got back at 4:30pm having spent less than 2 hours seeing the Tulou and almost 6 hours in the car. The driver expected a tip and was unhappy that I didn’t give one. In sum a complete ripoff. Be forewarned. Make sure that if you go you are taken to see the main complex of Tulou including a 700 year old Tulou. Now I feel like I have to go back again and I waisted $300. Avoid Silk Roads Travel, they are a ripoff.
    icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
    Dear Sir, Sincerely sorry to hear your experience. We have responded to your another review already, and this one is similar to that one. I guess the problem is you want to view another section of Tulou called Tianluokeng, and this is HongKeng Tulous, which are similar but not what you preferred to see. Regarding the price which is listed clearly on-line, you can choose to go or not. The Scenic Area of Hakka Cultural Village in Fujian Tulou is the official name for Yongding HongKeng Tulous, which is the most renowned place for various old Tulou houses, and its early history can be tracked back to 1200 years ago. Tianluokeng is another village that is famous for Tulous as well, and it is hard to tell which is better for either Tianluokeng or Hong Keng Tulous, both are World Cultural Heritage. It is hardly to visit both places in a day, which will be very long day if you visit both sites. If you prefer Tianluokeng Tulous, you can book another day tour to Tianluokeng Tulous from Xiamen. Regarding the electronic cart, it is for the local villagers, not for the Chinese tourists. The visitors walk to and from the village about 1km, and the entire visit is about 5km, which might be quite long for some visitors. Jane is a local girl living there and that is why we arranged her to be your guide and hope she would let you know more about the Tulous. She misunderstood the lunch arrangement, and we told her immediately to re-arrange it as per your wish after you called us. The restaurant is a Hakka restaurant because the whole village is a hakka community. The chicken is cooked normally with bones in China, which might be hard to chew for foreign visitors. Meanwhile we asked her to take you to visit more tulous after lunch, and the ticket is package for the whole village and no need to pay extra admission. We realized that Jane did not explain well with you, and she gave you very poor impression about there due to her language limitation. We apologize for it, and would talk with Jane to avoid the similar things happening again in the future. Yongding Tulou is far from Xiamen, we understand you want to see more and learn more for a long car-ride. Jane did not do well, we would get other guide to lead the tour. Many thanks for letting us know your feeling, so that we will improve our services. Wish you a wonderful time in Xiamen and China.
