"The most beautiful scenery is always on the road”. As a travel enthusiast like you, I love to go to different places to see different views, to experience different culture, custom and life style. Travel makes me know more than what I have seen in books and videos. The real moment of touching the bottom of my heart by stranger’s kindness is the warmest and most unforgettably memories during the travel. It also gives me courage to expect the unknown in life.

I would like to thank you for the amazing trip to Tibet!!!
Everything was really well organized and I loved every bit, Lake Namtso is a very special place!!!
I would also like to mention the guide who took me to Lake Namtso, Jigme.
We had a very good time and I would highly recommend him.
Once again, thank you for everything!
Just wanted to let you know that we had a great trip. Thanks again for all of your efforts to coordinate everything. We will be very happy to recommend China Discovery to our friends and look forward to another trip to China at some point in the future.
Thanks for your help with our group. The faculty said that everything went very well and we would definitely recommend your services.
I hope you are having a nice summer!
I’m waiting for the flight back to Kuala Lumpur now. Flight is delayed.
Thank you anyway for your kind help thus far. We enjoyed the sightseeing very much especially pingyao. Food at 天元奎 as recommended by hotel staff in pingyao suit us well.. and breakfast served at 云锦成was very good too. All in all is superb; it’s a memorable holiday trip for us all.
Thank you again.
Attached are some pictures of my trips to Dandong and Lhasa.
The first picture is of a Chinese couple and their daughter, as well as me and David, taken at the Broken Bridge between Dandong and N. Korea.
The 2nd Picture is of the monument in Lhasa - across the street from the Potala Palace.
The 3rd Picture is of a woman who just became a nun at the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa
The 4th Picture is of the Potala Palace in Lhasa
The 5th Picture of a photo of N. Korea taken from the top of the Great Wall in Dandong
The last Picture is looking back at Dandong from the same spot on the top of the Great Wall in Dandong.
Both tours were wonderful; both David and Dolma were great and knowledgeable; and we often discussed history during our down times. I walked away with some different perspectives. The service provided by them, and you, was fantastic; I wouldn't change a thing. I plan to travel to China again in the future; I will certainly call you when I do.
Further to your request, I will post some commentary on Trip Advisor.
Take care; and I look forward to working with you again.
I never got the first card back, as I never pressed the button that said 'Return Card' (we don't have it in England, it comes out automatically and BEFORE you get the cash, not AFTER, which confused me even more... especially with jet-lag on arrival). I needed a guide to think *for* me, ah :)
But I had packed a spare Visa card (THANK GOD I DID !!!) and this one still works and I'm still using it now I'm back in the UK as I do not have any others... I only have two.
In England we don't use WeChat or QR codes so everything is via the Visa card (we swipe it to pay for the bus, etc.).
Anyway, I still had THE most amazing time... pity you can't use Facebook, people have LOVED my photos... I'll just attach a few now for you to see... I'm about to dash to work... can't send many more...
Thanks again for arranging our fantastic tour in China. The tour itinerary, the tour locations, tour guides and accommodations were all 5-Star and we had a great time. I will answer your questions in your email below.
My wife and I recently returned from a trip to China which was arranged by your company under the guidance
Of "Echo Gou". I am writing to say that we have been very impressed by the expertise and communication that
Echo has shown in organising our tour.
Our trip was very memorable and the places and hotels that were organised were beyond our expectations, I have
No hesitation in recommending your company and Echo to any tourists who are considering a trip to China.
Thank you for your email, we really enjoyed our trip to China and thank you for the arrangements you made for us.
We will recommend you and your company to any friends who may travel to China.
The tour arrangements were very good and all went very well, the only negative was that when we arrived in Shanghai the guide as not there to meet us....Just as we were going to call a taxi he arrived, about 20 minutes late. However he did eventually arrive and all was well. The Hotel in Guilin was not as good as the other Hotels we stayed in.....it seemed as though it is in need of some renovations.
All the guides were very good.....Lee the guide in Zhangjiajie was fantastic and should be recommended for her great work.
My wife and I would recommend you and your company to fellow travellers. Our opinion of you and your Company is that you are professional and honest.
We are willing to endorse your services for anyone who wants to travel to China.
If I write a travelogue with photo's I will send you a copy.
Once again thank you for organising our trip to China.....We were very pleasantly surprised with China and we found it a very interesting place to visit
Bill & Jeannie
We would like to thank you for your organising our trip to Shanghai and Yangtze River Cruise. We were very impressed with our Hotel in Shanghai and the level of service provided by all the drivers and guides. The cruise was fabulous.
Again thank you very much we will have no hesitation recommending your travel company.
Dear Ms. Gou,
My husband and I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and all the details/organisations you put into our itinerary for our trip. Everything went very well, the 3 tour guides (Diane/Nancy & Melinda) you arranged to take us from airport to boat to train & to airport again were all very friendly & efficient and informative.
Please pass on our appreciation and thanks to them & to your managers about what a good job you all did to make our trip so enjoyable and free of problems.
Your help has been much appreciated
We very much enjoyed the tour and was impressed by all three groups of nice drivers and guides. They had made the tour very smoothly and efficiently. We were able to maximize our time and also be flexible about the places we like to visit.
To answer your questions:
1. The itinerary was perfect, enough time on each site,
2. I would highly recommend your company to all my friends who would like to visit China
3. You did a wonderful job in planning everything, we like the hotels, guides, transportation and itinerary.
4. I think the only thing I would suggest is more communication on confirmation, I literally got the contacts of the guides right after I landed Shanghai. It wasn’t a big problem at the airport, but because there are many exits for the train stations like Nanjing and Hangzhou, we need to know ahead of time which we would use.
5. I plan to write a review on TripAdvisor for you, will share with you later, you can put it on your website.
6. I look forward to using your company again!
I am enclosing some photos in another email.
These are a few highlights of our trip, Yu Garden, Bund, Dr. Sun Yat Sen mausoleum, West Lake, MeiJia Tea Village.
Our Wonderful Experience in China
Hello there Echo!
I am very well and hope to hear the same from you.
I will definately recommend you to my friends and family.
Much appreciation for the great service!
I have completed my answers below the questions.
With much appreciation,
Dear Echo and the back up team,
Now that Cathy and I have returned home we appreciate even more the wonderful holiday adventure we had in China.
To begin, I must say that this trip to celebrate my 70th birthday has been a revelation and a delight for us both. We could have availed of the services of a well-established travel company in Ireland but we wished to have a bespoke different itinerary to suit us and to be independent of a group for a change. Cathy contacted a few tour groups on line operating in China to discuss our plans, options and costs. We were most impressed with our interaction with you Echo and we appreciated your honest and efficient communications.
Of course we were cautious and concerned when it came to sending payment in advance to a company so far away but we were reassured by some reviews we read on line about China discovery. Your help, information and regular contact made it easy for us to take the steps necessary to progress our plan.
Then we waited to see how the arrangements would come to a reality, wondering if we had made a good choice in your company. Our blind faith and confidence was rewarded with a perfect, smooth and easy series of pick-ups, transfers, accommodation, eating experiences and personal attention from your delightful team of tour guides who were most professional in their dealings with us , in their knowledge and communication and especially in their extra care of us.
The advantage we found in having a guide to ourselves was the attention we received which allowed us to develop a friendly personal rapport with our lovely guides.
Our first Guide and driver arrived on time at the hotel and delivered us to the train station, purchased our tickets and waited with us until we were on the train. This was over a very short period and we were impressed with her service and care to us. Next we were picked up by our guide Jill in Hangzhou. The weather was dull and wet but Jill made it a wonderful experience for us and her good spirits and friendly disposition was a pleasure for us. Jill ensured that we had a good restaurant and explained the menu to us. The choice was excellent and she gave us her phone number in case we had any issues. We appreciated Jills care and attention to all details of the tour and the train travel arrangements to Huangshan. We commend her highly.
We arrived into the safe hands of John who was with us for the next few days. He is a dedicated and enthusiastic guide who gave us so much information on so many aspects of Chinese life and culture. Yellow Mountain is like a fairytale and mystic extraordinary place. We would recommend the other hotel, for future reference, to make the long evening and dining experience enjoyable. John was very thoughtful and caring of our dining needs and ensured that we were so well cared for after our days touring. John is a real professional who understands the needs of his clients. We commend him highly also.
Johnny was our next guide who met us at the airport in Xian. We enjoyed the tour and the excellent lunches all aspects of the tour arrangements were met professionally. This may be outside the brief of the tour guide but having appreciated the extra service of Jill and John previously , our recommendation is for the guide to ensure that the clients have a choice of evening meals as this remains an area of bewilderment for those not familiar with the Chinese cuisine. I suggest a choice of local restaurants with an explanation of the menu, or discussion with the guide as to a good recommendation.
We really enjoyed the cycle around the magnificent wall and we thank Johnny for hiring the bikes for us.
Lisa was the next to meet us with her driver of the impeccable salon car. Lisa was exceptional in her warm good humoured personality. Her supreme professionalism and friendly disposition made the tour so interesting and enjoyable. Furthermore she sent us items in the post after our liquour and fruit knife were confiscated at the station. We cannot praise her enough to thank her for her genuine care of us. We commend her most highly.
All aspects and locations of the tour you arranged for us were most enjoyable and we would certainly avail of the services of Chinadiscovery again without hesitation.
We commend you highly and can recommend you to anyone wishing to have the same positive outcome and holiday we had in your great care.
When I get time to pick out a few photographs, I will send them to you.
Best wishes to you and your team. Please feel free to inform your guides of our great appreciation of their professional service and personal attention to us.
Cyril and Cathy
Hi Ms. Echo,
Greetings from Malacca, Malaysia.
Sorry for the late reply.
Was busy with my mails and errands after returning from Chengdu.
Yes the trip was generally satisfying.... other than the 1day stopover in Chonqching. Because it is a big city with sky scapers everywhere, it is more suited for business travel.
Quilin is a beautiful place and the short cruise was pleasant.
Chengdu is a modern n hype-city and the hotel that we stayed was just great in terms of location n shopping-convenience.
Yes, I will definitely tell my friends about China Discovery company and their efficient services.
And I will use your company again for future China trips.
Thank you Echo for your patience n services.
Dear Ms Gou,
Happy holidays and have a happy prosperous New Year!!
Here are my comments on your company's service during my family's Shanghai Hangzhou tour:
1. Your car drivers, especially the Shanghai one, were good, friendly, and helpful. When we left a Chinese souvenir in the car after a visit to Shanghai Museum, the next day the driver returned it to us.
2. The three tour guides were all professional, nice, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed being guided by them. Miss Fei, our last tour-day guide was particularly friendly n always kept smiling.
3. The tour program or itinerary was quite satisfactory. Our requests of watching the Song Dynasty show, wearing Chinese costume, visiting West Lake & Disneyland, shopping at Nanjing Road were all accommodated and well arranged. We also enjoyed visiting the Shanghai Observational Tower and the Bun as your additional programs.
However, we were a bit dissapointed on two things: First, we had to wait for 20 minutes for the West Lake ferry to board while we were already on it. Second, the tour guide was late 30 minutes from the agreed time to pick us up from Disneyland.
4. We were less satisfied with the lunches. In Hangzhou, our lunch was not as expected and was taken in a rush as we had to catch the show. Perhaps this was due to the long waiting time for West Lake ferry that made us late to arrive in Song Dynasty Park. The menu for the last-day lunch at the Bun was also dissatisfactory. We noticed that the guide offered some seafood menu but it was not served.
5. Overall, on scale 1 - 10, we give 7.5 to your services and we will contact you again if we visit China again someday.
Dear Ms Echo,
We would like to thank each and everyone at China Discovery for a truly wonderful experience in China.
We all had a fabulous time and enjoyed ourselves tremendously.
Special thanks to you, Eric, Kimi and Candy.
I will definitely recommend you to all my friends in Malaysia who wish to visit China.
We enjoyed our trip there and thanks for all the arrangement.
The service is great with very friendly and helpful tour guides. We will definitely use your service if we decide to go to China again in the future.

6. Frankly, our company can also provide online the whole China travel services, I hope we have chance to serve you again!
DEAR ECHO GOU,
YOUR COMPANY HAS PROVIDED US, WITH A VERY GOOD TRAVEL ARRANGEMENT. YOUR INSTRUCTION AND ADVICE ARE ALL FOLLOWED.
WE WILL SURELY RECOMMEND TO OUR FRIEND, ABOUT YOUR EXCELLENT TRAVEL AGENCY. IN MY FUTURE TRAVEL TO CHINA, WE WILL CONTACT YOU. NEXT YEAR WILL BE ANOTHER YEAR. IT WILL BE ANOTHER TRAVEL TIME FROM APRIL TO OCTOBER OF 2018.
THIS IS MY COMPLAIN. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR TRAVEL AGENCY. SINCE WE ARRIVED AT CHENGDU ON OCT. 10, 2017 UP TO OCT. 15, 2017, WE SUFFERED DAILY RAIN SHOWER AND THE WEATHER WAS COLDER THAN ANY OCTOBER. WE DID NOT ENJOY A GOOD AUTUMN WEATHER. HAPPILY ON OUR LAST DAY OF OCT. 16, 2017, THERE IS NO MORE RAIN.
AND ALSO ANOTHER COMPLAIN, THE AIRPORT IN CHENGDU IS VERY UNFRIENDLY. THEY ARE TOO STRICT IN THEIR IMPLEMENTATION OF INSPECTION. THE AIRPORT PERSONNEL ARE ARROGANT AND VERY POOR IN TERMS OF PRESS RELATION.
OVERALL MY COMPLAIN HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR TRAVEL AGENCY. IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL STILL BOOKED OUR TRAVEL WITH YOUR TRAVEL AGENCY
ONG LIVE TO YOUR TRAVEL AGENCY. AND WISH YOU SUCCESS FOR ALL YOUR UNDERTAKING YOU MAY TAKE IN THE FUTURE

Good morning Echo,
The tour will be one of the most memorable trip I ever did.
Here are some pictures.
As for the questions:

2: I will recommend your office when the occasion comes.
3: You offered a very good service, very professional yet friendly and warm, so that I felt comfortable to ask you any question I needed.
4: Maybe have the guide to provide a map of the trip, because half of the time I did not know where exactly I was.
5: Unfortunately, I decided not to write on this trip, but please feel free to post the pictures I gave you.
6: I'll keep in mind China Discovery for my next trip in China.
Thank you very much for your attention and for this trip !
