I booked this tour and customized it based on my flights. We only went to Shaolin temple on the first day and Longmen Grottoes on the second day. Our tour guide, Andy Chen, was very nice and has a lot of knowledge about the scenic spots there. We went to have lunch at a very nice old royal temple. Delicious v more..
