Livia Gu - Our Top China Travel Consultant

Hi everyone from all over the world. This is Livia from China Discovery. We are a big and warm family. As a travel consultant, I devoted myself to all the knowledge about tourism industry and try to be a life long learner and more professional as years goes by to make your tour better and better. China is a mysterious country with long history and fabulous culture and so welcomed to explore. I am so happy to learn more about yours too.

Since I was a college student, I usually travel alone and choose guesthouse often. Then I had a baby which makes my mindset changes, the more I concern now is the comfort and convenience of whole family and choose 4-star or 5-star hotel now. I went to many places before I throw myself into this job. All those experiences become the foundation of my work today. And also, my experience to India in 2013 for a month volunteer, I got very nice treated by local people I met which sowed a seed of kindness in my young heart. So I am good at tour travel plan from budget to luxury and so willing to help anyone who may need my help even you do not book tour package from me. Whatever you want, please feel free to ask. I am your friend in China now and forever.

During my working experience, I get many good feedbacks from all kinds of person. And one person impressed me a lot is dear Irit from Israel. What we emailed a lot is about the invoice, we changed it about 10 times which is not included the itinerary change emails. After they finished their tour, she gave me a very good comment on since I delivered one more copy to her country .She recommend her friend dear Amos families who have members from 5 years old to 80s. They booked tour from me too. Thanks for both of your trust. And Irit and I are still in touch for other tour plan. Also I have other customers who had booked with me many times and thanks for all your trust and choice if you read this page in the future. All the nice talk, good feedback and those trust from you guys make up an important part of my happy life. So as my company families.

So, in the future, I will be responsible, trustful and patient as well as monitor the tour quality and try my best to leave you a nice and happy impression of China. Welcome all the feedbacks, this would make me and our product better and better! Wish you are happy all the time!

Hi Livia

Please see below.

Arranging the tour was very easy since we could do everything by contacting only the one person, and communicating with WeChat. 

2.Are you willing to recommend our service to those who would like to come to China ?


3. Your general opinion on us?  

Very professional and well organized. And what we liked the most was the flexibility of the tour guides. When some sights got closed because of the weather conditions, they both did everything they could to find new suitable arrangements and all of them were great. We are very happy with both tour guides. 

4. What will be your suggestions regarding how to improve our services?

Really noting to suggest. All went very well. 

5.Do you plan to write (or have already written) a travelogue or a story to share with your friends? any language is ok. Would you like to share it with us and our clients?

Good morning Livia,

Well we are now home after spending 3 days in Sydney after our China tour.

Very very happy with our trip to see the Warriors our driver who picked us up from the hotel was great, he helped us go through the train station and was there to pick us up to take us back to the hotel.

We spoke to Shirley prior to leaving the hotel she was extremely helpful.

The train trip was excellent very comfortable.

When we got to Xian Carrie was waiting for us, what a lovely young lady she made us feel most welcome.

Cannot remember the drivers name but he was very good.

We had a wonderful time seeing the Warriors. Carrie was excellent with the knowledge of the Warriors. It was lovely spending the time with her, she took us to a very nice restaurant for lunch the food was delicious.

Then it was time for our return journey back to Zhengzhou, Carrie took us through the station.

We highly recommend your company for the ease of the booking and how everything just went so smoothly.

Could not of done this tour without you.

Many thanks

I would also like to take this opportunity to provide some feedback for Shirley who was my guide and assistance for the final days of my tour. 

Shirley was brilliant in every way - extremely friendly, helpful and always happy to be flexible and make new plans when the weather changed or when we wanted to escape the crowds. Please do pass her my thanks.

Hi, Livia

Thank you for reaching out to find out.  I came back yesterday after a few treatment in Korea for my pinched nerve condition.  I’m feeling better now but still not back to normal yet.  Everything went well with your service and all guides were very attentive to our needs and worked hard to provide the best service possible.  It was quite enjoyable.  Please let all who took us around that we appreciated their service in China.  Thank you.

I haven’t seen the credit on my Paypal account yet, and I assume that it is forthcoming soon?

Hi Livia,

I meant to send you an email, but I got very busy when I got down to Shanghai. Considering the holiday, I thought the trip went well and Victor made it very informative. I would like to have had more time on the Wall, but after we did our wonderful foot massage, I think I understood the need to go by there instead of not. My thanks. It was more than I thought it would be, and did not mind it lasting longer than planned. I doubt I will be back, but you have friends who will do this and I will certainly give China Discovery a very good review.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Hi Livia,

We finished the cruise on Saturday morning, with a visit of the 3 gorges dam. The cruise was great - the weather was not particularly good, but rain and clouds make for very nice pictures!

Hi Livia,

I have written my comments below.

  1. Overall I am satisfied with the arrangement on buying the tickets for us. Especially your service I am rather please. You are responsive and thoughtful to remind us on the timing and the docking berth of the ship on the day of our trip. However the whole trip I rate it as fair partly due to the heavy fog and hazy condition, which we did not see the best of three gorges. I also wrote my comment on TripAdvisor. You can also take a look.
  2. Yes, I’m willing to recommend your service.
  3. You are really trusted.
  4. Yes. I am thinking to travel to Tibet again may be a few years time. Will definitely look for you to see what you can offer.
