Johnson Wang - Our Professional Travel Consultant

Hello, my dear friends! This is Johnson from China Discovery. My major in college is tourism management. I have taken practice in hotels, tourist attractions and even worked as a tour guide. I also have been to a lot of places of interest, such as Huangshan, Xiamen, Guilin, Jiuzhaigou, Zhangjiajie, Xian, Sanya and so on. I have lots of hobbies, like sports, reading, singing… but my favorite is traveling.

So, I take this job and devote for the career for over 3 years. By working with our team, I arranged tours for over 1,000 travelers and many big groups. Also, through the work, I learned a lot and got more organized but the most important is to see my travelers’ satisfaction and taking me as a friend! I start to learn this is a part of my life!

I believe most of travelers choose our company is for the high quality, so how to keep the tour always on a high level is very important, especially for the big groups. I have arranged a tour for VIPKid’s teachers and their families (totally 56 persons) in March of this year and I found that it’s not easy to operate such a big group. From the starting discuss itinerary with one of their leaders, figuring out the appropriate itinerary for everyone, collecting each small party’s personal info, taboos’ and favorite, and arranging sub-tours for their members, hotel room options, traveling with kids, different arriving & departure flights (we do over 10 pick-up & drop-off within a day, from morning to night), optional activities…etc. To make this well organized, I need to communicate with each sub-party of the group, even sometimes all this works will make my head burning but by coming to Xian to see their smiling face that will make all the difference! Finally, we did a successful group and make everyone smiling and I believe that I have made friends with the big group!

Like the famous phase by Jack Kerouac, “I was surprised, as always, that how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.” Why not make a difference by now? Don’t hold back, just set off and come to take a journey to China, to see it in your own eyes! I promise you see a different world of China with us!

Hello Johnson,

Many thanks for your warm greetings and concern while we undergo our trials and tribulations with Covid 19. Thank you also for offering to mail masks to us. Lucky we were well prepared, having been living in HK during SARS and bird flu.

I also passed your email on to other family members and they too thank you for your concern.

New Zealand is in lock down, day 7 and so far, all is well. We ourselves are managing very well in self isolation. There is plenty to keep us busy within the home – work, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, knitting, cleaning out cupboards and I am doing my keep fit via video. A sign of the current times, but hopefully in 3 weeks, all will be well again.

Take care, ad best wishes.

Johnson,

Just wanted to let you know that we arrived home, safe and sound and to let you know what a Fantastic time we had in Chengdu, Chongqing and Tibet.

Everything went perfect, we are so impressed with you, your company and the 3 guides and drivers that we had.

All our requests and questions over the months of planning the trip were answered promptly. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service we received from you and the quick help received in a Tibet when we had to make a last minute change. My husband and I were disappointed that we were not able to make the trip to EBC, but you made the extended stay in Lhasa easy. My husband is still fighting his cold, but the rest and walking around the 4 days in Lhasa helped him to start recovering.

Our guide in Chengdu made our day at the Panda Research Center and cooking experience a day we will always remember.

Our guide in Tibet was Fantastic, he was very interesting and fun and easy to be with for the week, we enjoyed our visit to Tibet very much.

Our our short time in Chongqing was wonderful and we appreciated the last minute tour that we booked our last afternoon and evening.

All the guides and drivers were very helpful and were where and when they said they would be at all times which made all the train stations and airport experiences easy.

We would definitely use you and your company again if we ever get the opportunity to return to China.

Thanks again for all your help and making this a very memorable trip for the 4 of us.

Hi Johnson,

Hope this email find you well. 

My family and I have returned to Sydney after 6 weeks of travelling! I want to thank you for arranging our 25 days China tour which we have really enjoyed. The itinerary was good although a bit tiring! 

China was amazing and your service in organizing and trouble shooting while we were there was greatly appreciated.

On reflection, we realized the highlights during our tours were the cities where we had a good guide and driver.

FYI the guides in SuZhou (Sarah), Guilin (Summer), Kunming (Jessie) and Lijiang ( Susan) and Chengdu (Jane) were all amazing. Their English and knowledge were very good. They made these cities/ places come alive for us.

Alan in Hangzhou took us to the best restaurant and ordered the best lunch we had in 25 days. Again a memorable city for us

On the flip side, Dali which was a beautiful city but we did not enjoy mostly because our guide ( Shirley) does not speak English well. We could not understand her narrative or explanation most of the time. The guide in Wuhan ( Jennifer) was very unhelpful, was on her phone most of the time unless we asked her questions. For e.g. The highlight of Wuhan to us was the yellow crane tower but she did not even bother to walk up with us  ( and gave us 20 min to go up and come down) As we all could not read Chinese , it made all the beautiful artworks, poems and historical significance a complete loss to us! At the Eastlake, again a beautiful area she rushed us in and out because she said we did not have enough time but we ended finishing the day around 4 ! As you know she also ignore us during lunch so I had to send you the complaint myself! So Wuhan to use was the least enjoyable day.

For your reference, I think you have to ensure the guides you provide to any group you organize speak good English and are experience and helpful.

Overall, I think it was a great tour and your service is excellent from start to finish. I will certainly recommend you to my friends and hope to organize a Silk Road tour with you  in the near future !

Thanks again

Regards

Dear Johnson,

We are safely home, settled into our normal life and it is with great pleasure that we respond to your request for feedback.

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

I can not recommend Johnson Wang highly enough. He was incredibly prompt and patient with my numerous emails, and super helpful in allaying concerns or accommodating specific requests. 

2.    How do you comment your tour arrangements?

From my initial enquiry, until completion of our tour 12 months later, Johnson ensured that every detail of our tour was thoroughly met. The tour arrangements exceeded our expectations!

3.    Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

There are multiple tour companies and travel agents offering very cheap packages for China tours, but we are so pleased we chose to contact China Discovery and negotiate a package that met the travel needs of each of us, and that made our experience in China feel exceedingly VIP compared to the travel stories we have heard from our friends who chose the cheaper deals. We would only recommend your services, as every detail from the communication, guides, drivers, itinerary and special touches are what made our tour so incredible!

4.  Your general opinion on us?

Admittedly we had some reservations about creating, booking and paying for the tour entirely online, as there are too many stories about dodgy agents and fraudulent companies, but China Discovery (& particularly Johnson Wang) were exceptional to deal with, reassuring and very trustworthy. I give them a 100% recommendation!

5.    Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

The recommendations for optional activities was appreciated, but as the expectation between Western and Chinese culture is so different, I think a suggestion of dress code for each activity would be a good idea. 

For example, in Western or European culture the dress code for an Opera is formal, but in China it is casual, so we felt a bit silly when we dressed up very formally but then had to walk 30minutes to the venue and everyone else was wearing casual clothes.

6.    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?

Of course.

Amazing, efficient and outstanding Tour Company. Great Ambassadors for China. Your guides and drivers are outstanding tour guides and drivers - some of the best in the world.

Dear Johnson, 

We are back from our wonderful trip to China and wanted to thank you for the effort you put in to make it smooth and comfortable for us. As we didnt speak the language, we appreciated being helped through all the airports which made things much easier for us. 

Your country is beautiful, so vast and with so much to see. All the meals we had were super delicious, the best one being in Xi’an at the spa resort. Truly, there was never a bad meal in China anywhere. 

We loved Beijing - Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City were impressive, the Temple of Heaven, and walking through the Summer Palace and tombs of the Ming Dynasty, very lovely. The highlight though, was our climb to the Great Wall - amazing! Kevin, our guide in Beijing, was outstanding and went out of his way to cover it all while making sure we avoided the crowds. 

In retrospect, we might have spent less time in Xi’an, where we traveled back to 221 BC to see the Terra-cotta Warriors and browse through the Muslim Quarters. Our guide, Timo was very professional. Perhaps though it might have been better to spend a few days in Sichuan where the pandas live. We also loved going to Lhasa and our guide, Zhou Ma, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Shanghai was not to be because of the typhoon, so going back to Beijing for the Lama Temple, Confucius Park, Imperial College and zoo was the right thing to do. We also appreciated upgrading to a suite at the Dong Fang. Our guide, Sally, and pick up person, Cherry, were very good. On the whole, it was a fabulous tour. Once again, thanks for all your help in making it happen.

Dear Johnson, 

Good afternoon, I have also received the gifts you had sent. Love it. 

Please find your requested feedback below.

How are you? How’s the tour?

The trip arranged was pleasant and fun. My mom and I enjoyed it. 

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

Yes, the travel consultant (Johnson) was very prompt and quick in responding to our enquiries. In fact, the trip was almost a last minute arrangement and Johnson was able to schedule and arranged it accordingly. 

2.    How do you comment your tour arrangements?

The tour arrangement was relaxing,not that the plan was not packed. We had a lot of sights to visit according to the tour plan and I originally had doubts that we will be able to visit them. The tour guide was also flexible enough to rearrange the tour according to the weather and time of visit and made full use of it to enable us to visit as much as possible. 

Not forgetting, the driver as well was good in his job. The drive was long and tired and can be mentally exhausting; he did his best and the trip was comfortable. He was also courteous and his car was clean and spacious. 

3.    Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Yes, definitely. Its my second time using and overall experience were great. 

4.  Your general opinion on us?

Quick and prompt, Flexible in arrangement (without accomo or meals) and most importantly easy to contact and communicate with. 

5.    Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

Overall, I had enjoyed your services in the 2 times, will definitely use your service. 

6.    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?

I have discussed with my mum and family, unfortunate, we are not comfortable with using images of us in it. Hence, we will share the landscape photos in which we have taken during this trip for your website, brochures, marketing and publicity purposes. We will share you in another email as we are unable to attach it here.  

Once again, Thank you so much Johnson, the guide - Mei and driver for making our trip possible and comfortable.

Thank You. 

Regards,

Timo was very knowledgeable and really made our time in Xian memorable. The driver was excellent, a very safe driver who kept the van clean and every time we left the van he had replenished the used water bottles.

Dear Johnson, 

Please see my feedback under each question.

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

Yes. My travel consultant Mr. Johnson Wang was courteous, responsive, and fast to answer all our questions. We totally relied on him for everything. He informed us on any last minute changes, how to get Chinese currency economically, and provided documents required for Chineses visa and trip itinerary accurately. 

2.    How do you comment your tour arrangements?

The tour was tailored to meet our needs. The four of us had specific departure and return dates. We couldn’t find any China tours in the USA to fit our needs, China Discovery was able to assemble a private tour for us. We had a van, a driver, and a local tour guide in every city. Our schedule was flexible. We didn’t spent any time at unwanted gift shops. We were able to fully enjoy Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai, the beautiful scenery, and interesting history of each site we visited. 

3.    Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Absolutely. We will be happy to recommend China Discovery to our friends, neighbors, and relatives. 

4.  Your general opinion on us?

China Discovery was there to provide excellent services. They were able to solve any issues quickly. We were relaxed and happy during our trip. 

5.    Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

The tour guides were excellent. If they can improve their English speaking skills a little bit more, it would be even better. Our first guide had excellent knowledge in history, but he speaks a little too slow. The second guide had excellent English speaking skills, but his voice was low. It’s hard to hear him well when we sat at the back row of the moving van. 

6.    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?

Dear Johnson:

I am writing to sincerely thank you for organising such a wonderful trip to China for my wife, Robyn, and I.

We returned from our trip a couple of weeks ago and we both have wonderful memories of your beautiful country and we feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to see the wide and diverse aspects of China from the towering cities, the scenic rivers to the small villages and farms. We were so impressed at the friendliness of people and their willingness to help us even though we couldn’t speak any Chinese.

The tour was comprehensive and it included all the key sights that were on our “to do” list and we thank you for collating such a wonderful tour.  We found all the arrangements from hotels, planes, sights and bullet trains to be organised so well that it was a seamless operation and we had no problems at all.

All the Hotels in which we stayed were excellent and more than met our expectations. The locations of the Hotels were very good and quite central to main roads and sights; they all were very comfortable and the breakfasts provided were, once again, very good.

The lunches provided as part of the tour were also very good and we always had plenty to eat and the service in these restaurants was excellent.

The transport – planes and bullet trains – were very comfortable and easy to navigate especially with the assistance of our Guides.  We were thankful that we upgraded to First Class on the bullet trains as our luggage was no longer a problem. The vehicle transport in each city was excellent.  The vehicles were generally quite new, roomy, very clean and comfortable.  All the Drivers were excellent and very skilled in driving and they often assisted my wife in getting in and out of the vehicle and with our luggage and this was greatly appreciated.  We also appreciated the access to bottled water which was always available.

We would like to make a special mention and thank you to all of our Guides.  We remember each and everyone of them – Mary and Becky in Hong Kong; Summer in Guilin and Yangshuo; Tina and Melody in Shanghai; Nancy in Yichang; David in Chongqing; Vivian in X’ian and lastly Lindsay in Beijing.  To each and every one of them we wish to say ‘thank you’ for making our trip to China so wonderful.  Without our Guides we would not have had all the information and history about the cities and the sights – they all have a comprehensive knowledge of their area and they were able to present this to us.  Their command of English was excellent and they were always ready to answer the many questions we had.  We are also very grateful for their attentiveness to my wife’s special needs and we know that without their help my wife would not have been able to enjoy the sights and the trip.  Each Guide we had would go out of their way to ensure that our holiday was special and one we would remember.

And lastly, many thanks to you, Johnson, for the excellent service you provided in organising our tour of China.  From our very first contact with you by email, we found that you were very responsive to all our queries and issues.  There was never any delays in responding to our emails and your answers were always comprehensive and covered all the issues.  Your organisation of the tour was excellent and we felt very confident in dealing with you via the emails. You and your company provided an excellent service in arranging our visit to China and we would not hesitate to recommend the China Discovery Tour Company to our family and friends when they are planning their China trip. We would also be happy if you wish to share this email with your future customers or on your website.

Once again, many thanks for all of your hard work in ensuring that our trip to China was wonderful and it will be remembered for many years.

Dear Mr Johnson Wang,

My two sons and I want to thank you for arranging the tour we just completed in China. Everything was done well and we enjoyed each part of the tour. The pick-up and drop-off at the airports and train stations were great. Each of our guides (Candy, Lila, and Terry) were excellent – they explained things well and were fun to be with. We enjoyed the food and extra activities that were options for the tour. Each of the hotels were great accommodations and had the third bed as we requested. My one son had food allergies and they were careful that those foods were avoided.

There is so much history and culture that we got to experience and we just want to thank you again for an excellent time in China.

Hi Johnson,

We have finally arrived home after our trip, I have just submitted a review of your company to Tripadvisor, I just want to thank you again, we had a fantastic time and everything went smoothly up until our last day in Shanghai. All guides apart from one were excellent and I would like to specifically advise that Timo in Xian and Nancy in Chengdu were outstanding, absolutely deserving of the highest praise!

The only minor glitch we had was on our last transfer from our hotel in Shanghai to the cruise port, the guide had some trouble finding us in the lobby, all other guides had held up signs with my name on and were very easy to find, we only noticed that this person was showing a cellphone to a number of guests in the lobby and appeared to be looking for someone, it was only once we approached him it was confirmed he was looking for us, there was also very little interaction towards us on the journey to the cruise port, we thought maybe  there was difficulty with English so maybe not his fault but a big contrast to all other guides.

Once again, thank you so much for organizing such a fabulous tour, there were so many highlights, we have a number of friends interested in making contact with you re the same tour or similar so I have passed on your contact details.

Hi Johnson,

Hope you are doing well. I have written my review below. I finally got a moment after coming back to the US. I think you do an outstanding job and you always looked after my interests. The trip would have been a lot better if we took the highway route, if the hotel issues were sorted out, and we had the welcome dinner to get acquainted. None of those things were your fault. The fact that you stepped in and took everything I said seriously showed how great you are with your clients.  So, thank you so much for everything.

Really appreciate all that you did.

Johnson provided prompt reply and answered all of my questions, from 7 months before the trip started all the way to when the trip was happening.  He is always patient and provides clear answers to questions.

The tour arrangements were planned well.  We had some issues with the hotel bookings and execution of the itinerary. I e-mailed Johnson and he was the one who worked with the local offices to get everything straightened out.

I would definitely recommend the agency to anyone traveling in China.  They are committed to taking care of any issues that arise.  Also, they were very thorough on the paperwork for Tibet, which is not easy.

I think Johnson genuinely cares about his clients and is committed to to giving his clients the best experience possible.  He works to resolve any problems and always takes the responsibility to find a fair solution. 

Best regards,

Sammy

Dear Johnson,

I write to express my appreciation and to thank you for the successful trip.

From the moment we wrote to you we got respond immediately, with a great deal of professionalism, courtesy and flexibility.

Although the trip was very complex, including internal flights and long trains, I must point out that it was perfect. Everywhere there was a local English-speaking guide with a car, all of whom were full of goodwill and professional knowledge, the hotels were of a high standard exactly what had been agreed upon in advance. We understand that it is difficult to plan such a trip with zero mistakes and I am happy to note that this was indeed the case.

Thanks again for the excellent service.

Of course I will publish on the Internet and recommend to all my friends about the successful trip.

Hi Johnson,

I just left a comment on Trip Advisor. Thank you again for your great help and organization for our trip!!! The choices of hotels were very good and the driver and the guide especially were excellent. Hank is very very knowledgeable in the Tibetan culture and history.

His English was very good and our son who is specialized in Tibetan culture has been able to have many questions answered concerning this culture. The driver drove safely too and I appreciated! Many thanks again for everything and your welcoming us, and we will certainty use Tibet Discovery again for a next trip to China

Hi Johnson,

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

Absolutely - could not have asked for a more attentive and responsive agent, Johnson.

  1. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

Everything we asked for was provided efficiently.  We had four main goals for China - Li River Cruise, Terracotta Warriors, Forbidden City and Great Wall.  All of those were included and fantastic...

  1. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Of course, without hesitation!

  1. Your general opinion on us?

I wish you covered more areas of the world.  I would love to have you make all my travel arrangements....

  1. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

Not really, all guides and drivers provided excellent service.  The hotels you picked were perfect.  All tours were thoughtful and interesting.

There was only one thing we would not have repeated. The cooking class in Xi'an.  A woman made us lunch, but we never saw much of what was done.  It didn't feel like a cooking class, just lunch at someone's house. 

HOWEVER - the class in Yangshou with a visit to the market was AMAZING.  It was a real cooking class.  Thanks for arranging that!

  1. 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, you can use it all.  Here are some of our favorite photos.  May need additional emails - it was 12 days.....  I'm sending 50.  It may take awhile.

Hi Johnson,

Let me begin to tell you that our trip to China was totally amazing! Unfortunately I had  a slight set back but thank you over and over for being able to let us continue the tour with  a wheelchair!

Cookie is really the one who likes the attention and this certainly was a worry off her shoulders that your guides and drivers  were able to step up to the situation in hand with dignity and kindness !

I am a very independent woman and for this to occur was difficult for me to accept and take this kindness with dignity!  I cannot ever thank the drivers or guides for their acceptance of this challenge and they were just marvelous !

I thank you for being able to step up and for all the rearranging you had to do to make a wheelchair at all the destinations for me ! You truely had a major responsibility and took  it on  without a problem! Calling us also and checking to see if everything was working as planned and it was!

I can say that my trip was a memory I will never forget and I would and will recommend your company and you to my friends!

It’s was a dream come  true trip for sure but only with the wonderful and helpful staff that you have working with you !

All the sight seeing adventures were amazing and the hotels were just beautiful! It certainly lived up to my expectations totally !

I am improving every day  and able to walk with just an elastic knee support on but it certainly has slowed me down ! I am a very active woman who does walks on the beach and swim daily for exercise ! But now limited to swimming and short walks but I’m very thankful and blessed for sure!

Again you certainly are a well organized man and your company is very lucky to have you ! Many many thanks again for everything!

Yours Truely,

Dear Johnson

We had a lovely cruise & we are very pleased to answer your survey questions.

1.  Joseph as our travel consultant you were outstanding.  Your answers to our queries were always immediate & detailed.  Thank you.  Also the guides provided before & after the Cruise were really good for sightseeing & transfer to Yichang Station.  The Bullet Train was very special & greatly enjoyed.

2.  First Class.

3.  Yes, definitely.

4.   Excellent.

5.   Two observations for Century Cruises would be:

     a. A meal (not necessarily a full dinner) should be available on the embarkation evening & be part of the package cost for the Cruise.

     b. The Service Charge would be more correctly gathered at the end of the Cruise.   A 15% service charge for drinks/all extras is excessive - 5% is more realistic & reasonable.

Perhaps you could make these points to them.

6. Yes - unfortunately we don’t have electronic photos.  Our cruise experience was recorded by camcorder & hence is on cassette. We then, by cable, play on our television when we return home next week.

Joseph very many thanks again - we are having a great time with our younger son in Shanghai & are about to leave for a long weekend approx 3 hrs away & ‘Up Country’.

With best wishes

All of our questions will answered in a very timely manner. I felt very informed, and I always felt welcome to ask any questions that I had.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

All of our tours were amazing. They did a fantastic job with fitting in so much within our week. I was nervous that a week would be too little of time. However, with this tour, I was extremely happy with what I saw and what I learned. We hit the main tourist attractions along with learning so much about the culture on the way.  Our tour guides Kai and Beryl were amazing. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to go out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Our drivers were so respectful, on time, and safe! We loved our tour arrangements in every way possible!!

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Absolutely! I would say this is the best way to do it!!!! Everything is taken care of from the moment you land until the moment you leave. I never had to worry about one thing. When visiting a country like China, this is the way to tour it!

4. Your general opinion on us?

We LOVED this tour! Everything was thought out and ran to perfection! There were no problems at all!Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

I would have loved to spend more time in the Muslim quarters. I know its street food, but I would have loved to try the "top foods" in that area. Just a suggestion b/c it was one of my surprise favorite spots on the trip!

Dear Johnson,

Sorry for the delay, I had a lot to catch up on at work.

First I wanted to let you know that we are very very happy with the whole package of services and arrangements you made for us via your company. I will be submitting a positive feedback for China Discovery in TripAdvisor when I have the time. Everything went seamlessly, the guides were perfect. On this front Daniel was the best from them all our family felt he really spent time telling us details and we learnt a lot from him about Chinese culture and customs in Guilin. He was also very patient and flexible (so were the other guides by the way). The fact that he was from Yangshou also could be why we got more details and could see his passion and that he a more experienced guide. The other guides were all good too, but Daniel really was the best.

Most of all I would like to thank you for your patience in working with me to develop the holiday suited to our needs. My husband and children were very happy with the arrangements. I have not gotten this professional level of support before, most companies are reluctant to work with their clients and push their own tour agenda. You really were very helpful in researching the type of hotels I wanted and making the bookings. On the hotel, I wish China would promote more the small boutique hotels like Yangshou Mountain Retreat and the Longji Art Hotel.... foreign tourists really like these as you can escape the big Chinese tour groups and their loud guides using loud speakers that mostly stay in bog hotels.

With regard to the tour of the Water Town near Shanghai, I would like to give you feedback that the guide did not initially take us to the area where there are the tea shops along the river, its a good thing I had read about it in TripAdvisor so I told her we wanted to go there. Which was great, we had coffee in one of these places. I really recommend telling your guides to take your clients for some coffee or tea to these teashops along the canal. The visit to the pharmacy is not worth the trip, please drop it from you itinerary.

Zhangjiaje was fantastic, we loved the hiking and walking along the river. The Sky Bridge and the walk along the river was also great. Loved it. Tianmen Mountain was beautiful as well, however we did not like the crowds so much there.

Yangshou and Longji were our MOST favorite places and our favorite hotels. If we come to China again we all voted to go to Yangshou again. I would skip Guilin, nice place and we had a nice tour of the 2 rivers, 4 lakes but for as foreign tourist I'd rather have spent more days in Yangshou and Longji hiking and relaxing. Especially since you don't come across the big tour groups at all, only families.

Chengdu is a fascinating city, we like the fact that the guide taught us how to play Majong, now we all want to buy a Majong set. That was really kind of her. The Panda visit was not that impressive, we had hoped it was more natural and required some hiking etc. like safaris we are used to in India and Africa. Next time, if we come to China we would like to go to the Panda Reserve in the wilderness and camp there for a few days and then also visit Tibet. I understand that your company can arrange this too. Do you have good outdoor nature guides with good camping and wilderness experience in Panda country?

Note sure if you still need me to answers the questions below, having given you my comments above. But will answer them quickly.

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

yes you were super fast, I was impressed

How do you comment your tour arrangements?

As mentioned above, you did a great job, I would recommend China Discovery to everyone who wants to visit china and have them get in touch with you.

Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

  Yes

Your general opinion on us?

Already mentioned that I was very impressed by how professional your company is and how patiently you worked with me to development my tour agenda.

Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?  

Already mentioned above in my email, on the locations. Otherwise I have not additional suggestions. You did a great job. Everything worked very smoothly, even the flights and train tickets and local transport. Like clockwork. Perfect!

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?

Sure, would prefer that you don't use our names and pictures of the family but pictures I attach here only. You can say Sommer Family if you need to use a name.

Hello Johnson,

1. I've replied below. We have many pictures, and I'll share some with you once I've had an opportunity to go through them all.

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

Yes, we had no problems in scheduling things.  Response time was very good. We were late in planning this, so it was good to get emails back within a few hours when we were arranging things.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements

Everything was great.  We saw all of the things we were interested in, and our guides were very informative.  It's also nice to have quick access to the locations by being able to bypass the lines and also to have the driver drop off and pick up nearby.

Our only problem was that we were looking forward to visiting the urban planning museum in Shanghai, but it was closed. We actually were dropped off there before our guide, Melon, realized it was not available to us. I realize this was not her fault, and I felt bad for her, as I could tell she was embarrassed by this.  Other than that, we had no issues and everything was great.  We enjoyed spending time with all of our guides, and the driver was very efficient and we felt safe.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Absolutely.

4. Your general opinion on us?

Would definitely use again. Price was a little high, but the service was great. The guides were all very friendly, spoke English well, and were very informative about things. 

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

Make sure that the locations we are going to are available.  All were, with the exception of the museum as mentioned above.

6. 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?

I will, but only if you allow me to review first.  I will send photos as well.

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

All my questions have been answered fast and to my satisfaction.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

Receiving the travel permit was a bit tricky (mainly due to the lack of english knowledge of my hotel staff). The tour itselfs was perfectly arranged and the guide showed a lot of flexibility to adjust to our wishes.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

I would reccomend Tibet Discovery to everyone, who wants to visit tibet.

4. Your general opinion on us?

Great Tour! The trip to tibet has been very expensive - but the money was worth spent. The guide and driver were very nice and the tour was perfectly arranged. Also in case of misunderstandings (one of the guesthouses was below the standard I booked), Tibet Discovery found good and pragmatic solutions.

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

Improve communication between Tibet Discovery and Tour guide (I spent one night in a guesthouse below the standard I booked, due to a mistake in the communication), shorten time on Lake Manosavar (a few hours are enough - not neccesary to spend a night there).

6. 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?

Hello Johnson,

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you in regard to our trip to Guilin and Xian.  We had a great trip and I'm not sure I would suggest any changes. The itinerary and details you put together for us were just right for the time we had.  Accomodations were also very good.

The guide and airport pick up and delivery services were excellent.  Thinking back, I think we had four different guides during the duration of our trip.  All of them did a very professional job and took good care of us.  It is unfair to compare, but the two ladies were a notch above the two young gentlemen that we had.  If we ever have the opportunity to take another excursion in China you can rest assured we will be in contact with you.

Hi Johnson,

thank you for everything! It was a great pleasure working with you. I'd definitely like to answer these questions. Please see below..

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

Yes, our agent Johnson Wang is very prompt in responding to all my requests. I started with a river cruise request, and he is very responsive to my questions. During the booking process, I also had to make several changes and he is very accommodating to all the change requests. His professionalism and sincerity triggered me to make additional travel arrangement requests that were beyond the original scope. He was patiently assisting all my requests. After I arrived in China, we had a few phone conversations and I recognized that some of the phone calls were definitely outside his working hours; however, he was extremely responsive and helpful with my adhoc asks.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

We are very satisfied with our tour arrangements. Both the river cruise and the additional travel itinerary that was made at the last minute worked out nicely. The amount of time allocated and stops arranged were just right. We also appreciate agent Johnson's consideration in selecting family and kids friendly tour guide and driver for us since we have small children. We were also very satisfied with the tour guide assigned to us.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Yes, absolutely! Highly recommended, especially around the regions we traveled to.

4. Your general opinion on us?

I'm very impressed and appreciated with the professionalism and honesty your agent has demonstrated, which shone a great spotlight among all the negative publicity we had heard about the tourism industry prior to our travel. His help relieved lots of anxiety and made our life much easier!

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

I can't think of anything else right now. Hope all your agents provide the same quality service as agent Johnson!

Good morning Johnson,

Today we're leaving China and we are boarding our flight to Tokyo but we couldn’t leave before thank you and your teamwork for allowing us enjoying a wonderful and smoothly trip discovering all the amazing places that China has to offer the tourist.

As promised let me tell you what a great teamwork was Ms.Lisa and Mr. Dang to support our visit in Beijing.

Ms. Lisa is a super sweet and kind lady, very responsible person and exceed our expectations looking forward to give us advise and getting good seats for the last minute evening shows that we booked. Our driver was very responsible and serviceable person with good sense of humor.

Sharing our great experienced with China Discovery staff at different cities is the reason why our relatives in Shanghai had booked already a few trips with China Discovery as well.

Thank you and China Discovery for having a great professional staff that helps us having a wonderful adventure in our 15 days in China !

Thanks for your email. We had a great time and we felt that everything was very well organized.

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

Yes, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the service I received from the tour agency. Emails and phone calls were fast and efficient and very courteous. It was a pleasure to communicate with the tour consultant.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

It was great and fitted our needs perfectly. We didn't have many days and the six day tour was just right. The accommodations on the tour were also well chosen, comfortable and the sights were a good introduction to Tibet. Our tour guide was also absolutely charming and very knowledgeable.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Yes absolutely.

4. Your general opinion on us?

Very fast and helpful service, and once arrived in Tibet the tour was well organized. Having a local Tibetan tour guide made the trip even more interesting because we were able to learn about their culture.

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

The only thing I would suggest is to vary the restaurants in Lhasa. We ate at the same two restaurants twice and we would have liked to try other places although we understand the agency may have contracts with some restaurants.

6. 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?

Hi Johnson

We have just returned from our holiday in China and had a wonderful time.  We are already thinking about another trip in the coming years and would happily use China Discovery for this. I have included feedback on the attached document which we are happy to be used by your company as testimonials.  We were particularly pleased with our tour guide, Smiley, and are glad to have an opportunity to feed this back to the company.  Smiley was always polite, helpful, friendly and flexible in her approach.  She had good knowledge which she freely shared with us and this certainly enhanced our understanding of China and added great value to the tour.

We took many photos and will send some through to you when we have a chance to sort through them.

Dear Johnson,

I wanted to thank you personally for the care and consideration you showed my clients, the Cleland family, on their recent trip to China. They spoke extremely highly of both the driver and the guide you arranged as well as the itinerary and came back to NZ feeling like they had experienced a first class China experience.

I especially appreciated your phone call to me when the driver pick up didn't work up from Hong Kong as arranged. This showed a dedication above what most people would show. In addition, you have been extremely helpful and punctual with your replies throughout the whole process and I am looking forward to working with you with my future clients.

I know that, at some stage, you sent through a client questionnaire. I can't seem to find it so if you would like to send it through again I would be happy to fill it out. I would also be more than happy to let your manager know how brilliant you have been throughout the entire process so if you would like to forward this email to them, this would please me greatly.

Thank you once again.

Hi Johnson,

I'm very sorry for the delay in replying to you - work has been very busy since the trip! I have provided some responses to your questions below:

1. Is Your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions? Yes, Johnson always replied very promptly and with great information.

2.  How do you comment your tour arrangements? All of the hotels we stayed in were great. Due to the way the tours in the 3 locations were planned, we were able to see all of the key places we wanted to across our trip. The only issue we had with arrangements was the transfer between Xian and Beijing, where there was no clear meeting point for waiting for the tour guide. There was also no time allowed for us to go to the hotel for quick freshen up and food after a 5 hour train journey, which would have made an improvement. I would like to make a special mention of one of our tour guides, who was exceptional and that was Timo in Xian. He was friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel very at ease across the visit; he was also great with my young son and understanding of the groups needs - I would personally recommend him to others visiting the area.

3.  Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China? Yes, I have already recommended you to one friend, who booked a tour to Beijing recently. I will continue to recommend you to others.

4.  Your general opinion on us? Great service, quality tours and for a really competitive price; I will definitely use your company again.

We had a good time in Kunming and Chongqing. The guides and drivers were very good. By the time I contacted you, it was just before the trip and one area was not covered regarding Chongqing but all went well no matter what. The guides were able to accommodate us all the way. We took probably 1,000 pictures but have not loaded them yet and cannot do so now as all we have is an IPad, and we used a camera for almost everything. 

I do not have many immediate suggestions and we would be happy to recommend your services to anyone else. We found a restaurant on Green Lake in Kunming which was superior to the one recommended by your company. We showed Flavie, our guide and she should be able to inform you. Again regarding food, when we went to lunch, the quantity of food was usually 2X what we could have eaten. For a large group, there is no problem, I am sure but for 2 or 3 people, I suggest, the guides ask what and how much people would prefer. We personally would like to eat with the guides as that is a good time to get to know them better. As so few people, even in the hotels, speak reasonably good English, a guide is essential though certainly one could travel to the sights by oneself, it would be challenging so services like yours are needed most of the time.

You may use my comments as you wish. Ask me in a month and we should have photos uploaded when we are home to send you. Flavie took several of us in various places which she may be willing to share as well.

All of the arrangements China Discovery were excellent, drivers were courteous and safe drivers, vehicles were clean and well maintained! The guides were well informed in each area, no problem with their English, they were punctual for meeting at the airports or pick ups at hotels each day. Hotels were all excellent(4*) and breakfast choices were very good and varied between western/eastern choices! Locations of hotels made it easy to go out in evening on own. Lunch each day were also very good as went to local places each guide suggested and able to try local specialties. Special mention for the lunch in Yichang "Blue Island" awesome private dining room and excellent lunch, the best carp dish I have ever had!

The travel consultant answered any questions and worked with my schedule and interests to make this a great trip; 13 days from Shanghi, Yangtze River cruise, Xian and the Terracotta soldiers then ending in Beijing.

Will definitely use China Discovery again and highly recommend them to friends and family.

Thank-you to your entire team.

Hello Johnson

Sorry to not get back to you sooner.  We are in Australia now, and my son-in-law has been in hospital until a few days ago, so no time for emails. I do want to say thank you again for your great service in arranging our tour, transfers and train tickets for us. I will definitely recommend your company to others who are looking to book a tour. 

The tour itself was good. The scenery is spectacular. The crew of the ship are very accommodating and helpful. There were very few English speaking passengers on this particular tour, but we made friends with everyone via a few exchanged words, and gestures. The food was average. One thing I would let people know if booking the VIP floor and restaurant, there is a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant as the elevator only goes to the 5th floor and the restaurant is on the 6th.  This could pose a problem for anyone who has problems with stairs. The out trips were worth while, but I would have appreciated a little more time at the end of each one for souvenir shopping. 

Our car transfers that you arranged were all good and with good English skills as well. You have been very efficient and diligent in your job as travel consultant and I very much appreciate it.  Thanks you.  Sincerely;  

Holly

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

- The tour was excellent all around and well-documented support made it easy to enjoy our trip.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

- I would certainly recommend Yangtze River Cruises to anyone who would like to visit China and who would prefer the details be smoothed out ahead of their trip. The consultant (Johnson) was skillful at predicting areas of possible difficulty,  then offering a soup-to-nuts solution making our trip a breeze.   We had three generations on this trip and everyone had a terrific time.   Additionally, during the busy travel time of "Golden Week", the limited passenger count of a riverboat was a nice way to keep our kids and their grandmother from being overrun by crowds.

4. Your general opinion on us?

- Yangtze River Cruises seems to have this trip style down pat.   Not only is the information on the website thorough, the consultant also knew what additional questions to ask and was ready with solutions when we needed anything out of the ordinary.

5. 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, but please don't post my family name. Just use "Joseph F." I will look for an appropriate photo or two to share. Thanks again for a terrific trip!

Best Regards,

Joe F

I've been occupied but finally here's some feedback regarding the tour:

1. The travel consultant was extremely helpful with this tour. All my inquiries were answered usually within the same day or the next. Gave very helpful tips. Couldn't have been better!

2. The tour arrangement was really good. Pick-up to and from the Airport went smoothly. Hotels were better than I expected. The guide and the bus driver were really good.

The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, pragmatic, flexible to our wishes.

The bus driver drove very safe and efficient.

Everything was delivered as promised.

Hello Johnson,

Yes we are back in Chongqing and had a relaxing remainder of our week,

I will be happy to answer your survey as you will see below,

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

Our travel agent, Johnson Wang, was incredibly helpful in answering any and all of our questions. We had many questions in regards to everything about this cruise. We were unsure of our dates and being assured there was english speaking and also to be sure that we had a room with a double bed. He immediately walked us through every question and had the best possible solutions for all of our concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

All arrangements were made to exceed our expectations. Right down to an English guide at the end and first class train tickets to return.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

Would highly recommend.

4. Your general opinion on us?

We have been living in China for the last 4 years but had never required a travel agency service before. It was a bit intimidating trying to find one that was trustworthy and so helpful. Since we found this service on an internet search it was a bit scary. But we were extremely pleased with this service as they went above and beyond our expectations.

5. Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

None at all.

6. 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. I will forward some photos of our cruise on another email.

As for pictures I will send some to you in a follow up email.

Thanks again for all your attention to detail.

Dear Johnson,

I am very appreciative of your excellent assistance with booking our Yangtze River Cruise. You were always prompt in responding to my inquiries, answered my question completely, and generally provided excellent service.

Generally, the Yangtze River Cruise went very well. The overall trip down the river was very interesting, and the included side trips were excellent. The accommodations were good, there was an excellent variety of food, and everything was handled very professionally.

The trip overall was quite interesting and enjoyable, and your service was excellent.

Thank you again. I wish you all the best.
