Welcome to Taishan! Upon arrival, our guide will pick you up at the train station and transfer to visit Dai Temple. Founded in Han Dynasty, it is the largest and best-preserved architectural complex of Mount Tai. As a Taoist Temple, Dai Temple was a place where the emperor made sacrifice and worship the God of the Mount Tai and pray for peace and prosperity.

Dear Catherine,

Apologies for the late reply. Yes I would be more than happy to fill in the following form and feel free to use the photos and review on your website.

1.    Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?

Yes, I found Catherine to be extremely helpful when getting information regarding the trip, booking and then subsequent follow up emails. She was always very courteous and professional when speaking with her. Numerous methods of payment were available to us and were free to choose the best option for us. Emails with details of the trip itinerary were provided well in advance and were clearly laid out.

2.    How do you comment your tour arrangements?

The tour itself was a great mix of geography and history. Guizhou province is a great location if you want to be immersed in Chinese life. Guiyang city is a bustling vibrant city with many great sites, restaurants, bars and best of all the street food. Don't worry if you don't speak Mandarin and are afraid what to order, the people are so friendly and eager to help that pointing at what you want will get the job done! :)

The historical visits to ancient towns in Qingyan and Tianlong gave a great insight into the lives of the local people and how they are holding onto tradition.

The visit to the Dragon Palace cave and the Huanggoushu Waterfall are amazing. The features to be seen are once in a life time.

Our tour guide Mi was brilliant throughout the entire journey. Extremely knowledgeable regarding the geographical and historical aspects of the trip, as well as providing an insight into how the locals live and go about their daily lives. He was always on hand to help us order our lunch everyday and great to give a recommendation for street food in the evenings. On top of a friendly and professional nature, he made for an excellent tour guide. Coupled with the a safe and friendly driver, this trip was a brilliant experience.

3.    Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China? I would recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in a mixture of geographical and historical China.

4.    Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail? Yes

Photo's attached.

Thanks very much Catherine for your help.

Best regards,

Good morning Catherine,

We are finally back in Australia and wadding through our E-mails.

Thank You so very much, for a magnificent Tour of China You have provided for us. My grandchildren had the time of their Lives.

Everything you organise, Catherine, went like clockwork. We got picked up by Your Tour Guides on Time every time. The Hotels you choose are very good, the food you provided was of a high standard. The flight were all good.

It was a terrifically well organised Tour of China, Catherine. The highlight was the day we all volunteered at the Panda Institute.

The Guides were fantastic. With special mention for Liza in Beijing, She went beyond what you normally expect from a competent Tour Guide. The drivers are all safe and competent drivers. The driver in Xian was the best. He never made me walk more than required. Top marks to him.

I would certainly recommend very highly, yourself, Catherine and your company, China Discovery. For an outstandingly organised Tour of China. I thank you for your patience with me and please use my Name and E-mail, for any advertising you wish to do. You have my highest recommendation

A very satisfied customer

Hi Wonder

I am happy to give the following feedback.

1.    You provided us with excellent service right from the start of enquiry to booking to embarkation. Everything went smoothly based on your advice.

2.    The cruise was great. It went well except for a minor hiccup with the dam tour.

In fact, we are thinking of another cruise end of the year. I heard there is one from Shanghai to S Korea and Japan. Is your company offering this too?

Thanks again for your prompt, helpful excellent service this trip.

Best regards.
