Hi Vivien,

All has gone very well - thanks to you and your colleagues. I'm in Zhujiajiao today and looking around some parts of Shanghai. 

Regards!

Hi Vivien

I just wanted to email and thank you for the tour you organised for me! I really enjoyed it! I didn’t read all notes carefully ( only just now) and did not tip the driver. I tipped my guide but only because I wanted to and not enough. Is there a way i can transfer you money to tip driver and I would also like to tip the guide more as she was fantastic! I feel really terrible about it as I did not realise and did not think to! Please advise. Thank you!

Hi Jack,

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Guilin, Yangshuo and Zhangjiajie are world class tourist attractions. The scenery is spectacular. I was amazed I did not see more foreign tourists. I think it is because most people I have spoken to overseas have not heard of these places or realise how good these places are.

Guilin, Yangshuo and Zhangjiajie town centres are nice. They are a pleasant change from the crowded, polluted, concrete jungles of Shanghai and Schenzen.

The tour guides were very good. I especially liked Smiley. She tried very hard to make sure I was happy. She did well to change my itinerary after my flight was changed. The optional night boat cruise in Guilin and night show in Yangshuo recommended by Smiley were very good .

My only disappointments were:

- spending so much time travelling from Guilin to Zhangjiajie after my original flight was cancelled

- not being able to go out with the cormorant fishermen

- not being able to see the staircase through the hole in the hill in Zhangjiajie (because it was too far away and I had to leave for airport)

- having mist and low cloud obscuring the view when I went on the worlds longest cable car to the mountain with the glass walking platform (you can't control the weather)

Overall, I was very happy with the trip. If I had to do it again,  I would allow more time. I think you need at least 3 days in Zhangjiajie.

You did well to organise the trip at such short notice Jack.

I am sure you would get many more tourists if you advertised these areas overseas.

Best regards

Tony
