Dear Wing

Tom and I are home safely after a wonderful trip to China, although I got sick after leaving Xi'an. You did a great job planning the itinerary and making sure the guides arranged gluten free meals. The guides worked very hard to explain my allergy to chefs and I really enjoyed delicious food. I have specific feedback for you to help you in the future.

Beijing - We were sorry that Albert was sick but happy that he was considerate and did not want to infect us. And Marjorie was an excellent guide. She was friendly and had a lot of good information that she shared. We are glad that we chose the optional dance show. It was wonderful.

Xi'an - We loved the high speed train! The Sofitel was the best hotel we stayed at. Waldener was a good tour guide who had a lot of good information.  Guilin - We did not think the Sheraton deserved to be a 5 star hotel. We enjoyed the cruise on the River Li to Yangshuo. Smiley was our favorite guide. She was warm and friendly with a lot of local knowledge.  And she was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed her. This area of China was very different from the big cities and was great to experience.  The ethnic minority show on the river was breathtaking - we loved it.

Chengdu -  Seeing the pandas was such a joy!  It was the highlight of our trip. 

Shanghai -  This was a very interesting city.  We had a lot of interesting experiences.  Vivian was very sweet and a good tour guide.  I am glad we finished out trip with her and not Nancy.  It left us with a good feeling.  I was pretty sick in Shanghai but still enjoyed it.

All in all it was a very nice trip and I have already recommended China Discovery to friends who want to go to China.  We appreciated all your hard work in making great arrangements.  Thank you.

By the way, Timo the guide in Xian and Mark the guide in Beijing were both excellent. They were both very patient with me.
