Dear Karen Zhou,

I am writing to acknowledge the excellent service we received from your Travel Consultant, Mr. Wonder Wang.

Throughout our negotiations, we found him to be very conciencious, friendly, accommodating and efficient in putting this package together.  He made sure that we were looked after and received best value for our money.  We are grateful to him for making our trip to China a memorable experience. 

We had the opportunity to meet him in Chengdu and were very impressed by his mannerism and his professional conduct. The fact that he took the time to meet us at the airport showed his deep concern for his customers.  This made us feel secure that we were in good hands. This talented young man has a great future ahead of him and is a valuable asset to your organization.  He is passionate in what he does and takes his job seriously.

We will not hesitate to recommend China Discovery and the services of Mr. Wonder to anyone who is planning to travel to China.

Best Wishes for 2015.

Hi Karen,

Very good trip everything went like clock work. The hotels were great clean and English speaking staff. The guides are locals to the city and know alot and also being English speaking, without the guides there is no way you could do it by yourself.

Hi Karen

My Girlfriend and I booked a private tour with Karen from China Discovery over the internet from Australia. We knew roughly where we wanted to go and Judy helped us put together a great itinery.

All in all we visited cities accross China touching all the tourist spots we wanted to get to. (Shanghai, Beijing, Guilin, Xian, Li'jiang, Shangri-La, Chengdu etc). Judy was in contach with us regularly over the phone to make sure we were looked after.
We were met at the airport of each place by a fluent english speaking guide and safe driver with very clean vehicles, so everything ran really smoothly and easily. The guides helped with everything accross the board, from checking in (if assistance was required) and even went as far as picking us up after a show at 9pm and taking us back to the hotel even though our tour for the day had finished at 3pm with them. We found all of the guides to be very knowledgable about their cities and attractions and were very accomodating when we wanted to go off book or spent that extra bit of time at the Great Wall (Which we had nearly to ourselves because it was cold which was fantastic!)

All the hotels we stayed in were great (4 star) with friendly english speaking staff, well appointed rooms and amenities and good breakfasts. We had lunch provided and all the food was exceptional with huge servings of the local food in each city.

We got stuck in Yichang after our Yangtze river cruise because fog meant our flight to Shanghai was cancelled and Judy did a great job of finding us alternate means of travel to Shanghai. She also paid for a huge dinner at a great restaurant for the two of us and our guide and driver and got us an amazing room at the Crowne Plaza with views of the Yangtze river so we were very impressed by the level of care and service showed to us all the way through our trip. (This happened on our last day of the tour so for them to still show that level of service was wonderful)

If we get a chance to return to China we will definately use these guys again and thanks to the level of service shown by Judy in particular we will be highly recommending them to everyone we know thinking of doing the trip.

Our itinerary was to fly from Hong Kong to Chengdu where we would be met at the airport by our guide (Tom) and driver (Mr. Den). From there we were taken to our hotel. As soon as we got into our transport Tom presented my wife with a huge bouquet of flowers and basket of fruit which I thought was a lovely touch and completely unexpected.

The next morning we set off bright and early to begin time with the giant pandas....We had been told that it would be a "Once in a lifetime experience" and it certainly lived up to it's billing. Normally you would be straining to get a view of these wonderful animals but here we were within touching distance. The work itself was quite physical (lots of sweeping and cleaning is involved when mucking out pandas) The staff at the sanctuary don't speak much English but, Tom, who was excellent throughout, was always on hand to assist with translations. Our supervisors seemed impressed that we were both happy to get our hands dirty for the privilege of being so close to the animals. Our duties in the sanctuary included cleaning the pandas enclosures and sleeping accommodation and also helping to feed them. We were also advised that we might be asked to help with other tasks that might crop up during our time there...In our case I was asked to assist with some heavy lifting to assist in transporting one panda from Bifeng to another sanctuary.

At the Bifeng Sanctuary visitors can have photos taken with young pandas which costs £100. They can also interact (play) with young pandas which costs £200 for a few minutes....We were told that the reason why this is so expensive is because although they want the money (it all goes towards the costs of running the sanctuary)....They don't want to encourage too much interaction between humans and the young pandas which one day they might be able to release into the wild....I can understand this and we decided not pay the extra....We were more than delighted with the level of contact we had already experienced.

Our adventure lasted four days...Two days travelling to and from Hong Kong and two days at the sanctuary....We both rated it as a fantastic adventure with good food and accommodation. As regards the organisation...I can't really fault it....Everything was as described and the trip ran like clockwork....On the basis of this trip I would have no hesitation in recommending China Discovery Tours to anyone travelling in that area and if we ever return, I would certainly use them again.
