Just wanted to thank you for making our trip such an enjoyable experience. My family and I had a great time. Our guide, David, in Huangshan is very knowledgeable and most accommodating. He takes pride in his work and his cultural heritage. We learned a lot from him. 

I will certainly seek out your services 
again and recommend your tour company to my family and friends.

Have a great day!

Comment on our service from David Steele, Australia

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic. And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

Just a little feedback of our recent tours with you.

All our tours in Shanghai were great and the service was fantastic.

And our Beijing tours was hit and miss a little bit.

The guide we had for the tour of Tiananmen Square and Summer Place along with Forbidden City she was fantastic forgot her name, sorry.

I think you supplied the guide name Rocky what a blast we had with him number one guy.

So our top guides were Miss Keely or Ping along with Rocky and Miss Zhang.

I’ve been sick since we returned so that's why late feed back.


Best wishes,

Tour in Tibet Tour in Yunnan, China

5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?
Many parts, from the terraces of Guilin to the old part of Lijiang to the Potala Palace, everything was very interesting! As I told you this third tour was the best one for us: the weather was fine and not foggy, many interesting things to see and people is more kind in this south part of China, also the guides. We think we will do the fourth tour in the next two years :-)

No other suggestion, everything was OK

I wish you a nice day,

A very big hug from Manuela
