Lyn Wong - Our Professional China Travel Expert
When I was a little girl, I have dreamed to be a bird so that I can fly to the sky and see things that a little child cannot see. A few years later, I wanted to be a friend of Doraemon who has a magic door that leads to every corner of the world. When I grew up, I realized that how much I loved traveling, and to see around this world through my own eyes has become my most romantic dream since then.
Over the past few years, I have been to ancient cities like Beijing and Xian to feel Chinese long history and splendid culture; I have also seen incredible natural beauty in Zhangjiajie, Yunnan as well as Tibet. I have travelled a lot and experienced a lot. Now as a travel consultant in Chengdu Bamboo International Tours, I have helped over a thousand of foreign travelers to plan for their China trips. It always made me so proud of this job when my guests told me they have thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and will definitely recommend China and our company to their families and friends. Last year, one of my guests Mrs. Wendy from USA wrote to me after they finished a 16 days China trip with us: “Your tour guides were all great. I don't know how you find such great people to be ambassadors for their cities, but very much enjoyed our time with all of them! I would certainly recommend you and your company to any of my friends planning travel to China”. I think this could be the highest compliment to a travel consultant, and it deepened my love to this job.
My dear friends, I’m always here to help you work out the best travel plan and make it happen. You just need to make up your mind and contact us, and we will bring you a worry free journey. What are you waiting for? Come on and let me show you the real China!

Thanks. We really liked the tour. The itinerary and timing was perfect for us. The hotels were reasonable, especially the one on the mountain, which had great food in the restaurant.
I think maybe this hike was quite difficult for the guide, since our group likes to hike and we are all physically fit. I think maybe it has been a long time since he climbed the mountain, because of Covid-19 and no foreign tourists. And I think most people probably take the cable car up, but we like to use our own legs. Anyway, he did his best and was nice and helpful.

Tony was an excellent tour guide that helped us in all issues and also provided very good photos and videos for our memories.
As we were very luck with no people (less than 5 min waiting time at all attractions) and the weather conditions it was overall an excellent and memorable trip in China.
Please plan well the timing of your trip: in the peak season and public holidays, the waiting times are definitely many hours per day (!!!), so definitely avoid that.
I can fully recommend this trip, agency and tour guide.

Hallo Mrs Lyn,
It was fabulous!
I arrived safely in Amsterdam on Tuesday, my wife will return from Hong Kong tomorrow.
Before we left for holiday we were a little bit afraid of the cleanliness of China and its people and the quality of the food. But all was surprisingly good. The hotels were very good and we hardly saw any litter on the streets. We noticed almost no spitting and everything was very clean. And also the food in the restaurants, chosen by your agency, was very fresh and tasteful. Only once we didn’t like the food but that was merely because we chose the wrong dish. So all above expectations!
The trip we made and the things we saw in Beijing, Xi’an, Chengdu, Guilin, Xiamen and Hong Kong were very good and give us a real good insight in the way of living in China and its culture etc. All your guides knew all lot about the places we visited and gave us very much additional information. Especially Mr. Kai in Beijing is a very good storyteller. But also all the others: great compliments from us. The transportation was okay. Good and safe drivers. There might be more speed in them on the highways.
So, actually we don’t have any complaints about our holiday. China Discovery did a very good thing. In time we will send you some photos of our trip, but with over 2500 photo’s it will take us some time to select the best of them.

My sister & I have recently returned from a 6-day tour of Beijing & Xian arranged by your company. We were delighted with the arrangements made for our tour and by your very helpful assistance before and during our visit. We were especially grateful for the last-minute tickets you were able to arrange for our return to Beijing from Xian on the bullet train. Our guide in Beijing MARK LIUBAOGANG was incredibly accommodating, professional, informative with excellent English language skills and full of great advice. We would not hesitate to recommend him most highly. Our driver, Mr. Lee, was also friendly and efficient as was our guide in Xian.
Again, thank you so much for a wonderful experiencing Beijing and Xian. We will be happy to have our comments included in your advertisements and will be recommending your company to anyone we know who is planning a trip to China.

Yes, the gift was very much appreciated. Enjoying myself in Chengdu, although as you warned me, yesterday was very, very (make that 10 times very) busy in Leshan. Traffic was fine going there, we got there before 9:00AM, but coming home a different story. Left at 5:30PM arrived at 9:30PM. I felt sorry for the driver as he missed dinner with his family.
Once again thank you for all of your help with my two bookings. Arrangements could not have been handled any better and I got to see everything that I had planned to see.

We have returned home on Wed early morning after the Yangtze River Cruise on Century Paragon. We have enjoyed the upstream cruise tremendously and thanks for making it possible for both of us. Our request for the choice of executive suite was acceded and we have had a comfortable stay on board the cruise ship (Day 1 Pic). The cruise ship managers, Jeffery and Nancy were helpful and friendly. They provided us with good advice and suggestions and there was never a dull moment on the cruise ship. We were treated with Captain's Bridge Tour (Wheel House) on Day 4 and it was an eye-opening experience. We got to see what's the captain does behind the wheel.
The shore excursion to the Three Gorges Dam and the Ship Lift, boat excursion to the Goddess Stream and land excursion to Shibaozhai Pagoda were enjoyable.

The only thing which did not work was the procedure after arriving in Yichang on the bullet train as there was nobody waiting for us to show us to the bus. Eventually a lady arrived and referred us to a bus which had two free seats left. After arriving at the terminal for the river cruise the same thing happened as nobody advised us on what to do. Luckily a fellow traveler informed us to wait in front of a desk and eventually someone came and told us to go through to the check-in procedure.
Once we were on the ship, everything was fine again!

Good Afternoon Lyn,
Thank you very much for your email. We did complete the tour and had a wonderful time. Everything went smoothly and most of the tour guides were wonderful and excellent. The hotels for the most part were pretty good, though I think some of the breakfasts at the hotels could use some improvement. The lunches that the company suggested were also pretty good, though for we would have like more local restaurants rather than food at a hotel/spa.
I believe we completed all the surveys that each tour guide provided us. We really though that China Discovery was wonderful and we will definitely use it again. It’s funny that you write because we were thinking about out next vacation for next year. We are looking at two possibilities. We are looking at doing Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand) or I was going to ask you again if you might be able to help me look at an itinerary and cost for the following trips that I found on the website…

Also she is always in a good mood and very patient. She had excellent recommendations for us to shop for local things and where to enjoy Tibetan cuisine.

I wanted to express my deep appreciation for all your efforts to make my trip in China and Tibet a true adventure of a lifetime. You were not only a true professional in organizing my tour but also kind and patient with a client who wanted to get off the beaten track a little. All the tour guides were excellent. They knew their subjects well, spoke excellent English, and went out of their way after each tour to ensure I made my connections to the next hotel or flight/train (very important for an older guy like me who could easily have gotten on the wrong train and ended up in Outer Mongolia!). I also really appreciated how everyone was very personable and friendly. At the end of each tour I felt that besides seeing the tour sights I also knew each guide a little as a person. Your friendliness and constant attention during the tour made me feel after a few days like a family member was watching over me rather than just a conscientious employee. I think this human connection that you and the others provided during my tour was as important in helping me understand and appreciate China and the Chinese people as the tour sights themselves. Thanks again for a truly great experience!

Hello Lyn !
I returned to Canada just yesterday after a wonderful 3 week journey through China and Mongolia.
I must say that the highlight of the whole trip was the 4-day-3-night cruise down the Yangtze ! The 'Century Sun' is a very modern cruise ship that provides an excellent level of service and comfort for a relatively modest cost. There was a good mix of western travelers, tour groups and Chinese passengers on board the ship so it was also a very good 'multi-cultural' travel experience as well. All the officers and crew on the ship worked very hard to make sure that every passenger enjoyed their 4 days on the Yangtse: the cabins were extremely comfortable and well appointed, the ship was kept spotlessly clean, the buffet meals were really exceptional and the shore excursions and side-trips only added to the overall excellence of the cruise. It was an outstanding travel experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending you, Tibet Discovery or Yangtse-River-Cruises to anyone.
It was unfortunate that my original plan to travel to Tibet had to be cancelled but the cruise down the Yangtse more than made up for that initial disappointment.
I would like to record my appreciation for the very efficient and professional manner in which (you) have handled all aspects of my booking and ticketing. You are a fine ambassador for your company and deserve every credit for providing a first-class level of service and complete customer satisfaction. I am very grateful.

Our trip was amazing! The guides, Kevin in Beijing and Timo in Xi'an, were fantastic! I will highly recommend your services and you specifically to friends or family planning to travel abroad.
Also if you could put together a budget package (students traveling) to the giant panda reserve from Chongqing that would be fantastic. My son and friends are wanting to take a weekend trip to the preserve. They'd like to do the panda interaction if possible. I thought maybe you would be able to get me a price, I'll forward it to them, and then they can contact you to book dates and things. They do need to do this as inexpensively as possible.

Sorry for such a delayed response on this, we have been traveling a lot these first two months of 2017! Please seem comments below and some attached pictures! Thank you very much for your help with our tour!
- Guide and driver were very professional and helpful.
- The services provided were very good and everything was very well organized; I felt very relaxed on our trip and did not have to worry about anything. The customization and flexibility were very much appreciated, and the guides food suggestions were amazing!
- Well organized and reliable tour company. If it were a little less expensive we would definitely book more tours with your company! (Perhaps organizing drivers/tours in Harbin are just expensive though, we only got a quote from your company)
- Everything went quite smooth, the only thing that could have been improved was we had trouble in fining the Changan lake fishing activity. Our guide was very efficient at calling and locating it though, so even this was not a big issue.

We have returned home yesterday and are still a little bit jet lagged, but we would like to express our great thanks to you for organizing for us such a wonderful tour through China and Tibet.
All arrangements have worked out perfectly and at no point we did not feel unsupported by you and your team of guides and drivers. All your regional guides were friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English and committed to make our stay interesting. All hotels were very comfortable (obviously a couple hotels in Tibet were a bit cold but this is to be expected in the winter in such altitude and in the low season), all cars comfortable and clean and all drivers very good and kind. We cannot possibly find anything we could complain about. All your arrangements worked brilliantly from the moment we step off the plane in Hong Kong to the moment we step into the plane in Chengdu.
We will have lots of great memories and photos to remember our trip and are considering visiting China again at some point in the future. If we do we will certainly use China Discovery again without hesitation.
Many thanks for all your help, advise and care and we will recommend you to all our friends wishing to visit your wonderful country.
Kind regards and best wishes,
Alena and Roger

Hello from the UK!
Attached are just a few pictures of our tours of Xian and Beijing (including some photos of our guides). We had a wonderful time and will certainly recommend our friends to your service if they are coming to China.
Our responses to your questions are as follows:
1 Tour arrangements were excellent. Guides and drivers were always on time and everything ran very smoothly.
2 We will definitely recommend your services in the future.
3 We are delighted that we used you – an excellent find!!
4 Our only suggestion would be that future tours of the Terracotta Army should start with pit 3, then pit 2 and finally pit 1. Thus saving the best until last.
I loved China and I certainly hope to return. If I do I will be in touch. Please give Echo and Waldner our regards and thank them for their company and their expert knowledge.
We wish you and your staff a very happy Christmas.

Sorry this has taken so long. Marsha and I were very sick from the trip and are just starting to feel back to normal now. The air pollution is Beijing and Xian was very problematic! But now we are eager to share some of our thoughts about the trip in general and to answer your questions.
Both June and you were wonderful to work with!!! You were very flexible and helpful as we tried to figure out the best itinerary for our needs. You always responded promptly and made good suggestions. We were especially pleased to have more time in the Guilin area. The Longji rice terraces were a highlight for our entire group. It was so much better for our health to be away from the big cities of Beijing and Xian where the pollution was so bad during our visit. Thanks for helping us to work that in!
Our guides were all spectacular! All of them spoke English very well and they did a great job giving us background information in all the areas we visited. We got to know Kim in Beijing and Carina in Guilin quite well, as we were with each of them for several days. Johnny in Xian was also quite good. Getting to know these people is what Marsha and I will remember most fondly about our time in China! They were very open and personable. I feel we established a warm trusting relationship with all of them and came to know quite a bit about them in the short time we had together. Carina was especially helpful when she adjusted our schedule to take me to the Guilin hospital before our Longji rice terraces visit. Her ability to translate was essential to getting the right treatment.
When lunches were included, all of our guides picked restaurants with superb offerings! The amount and variety of Chinese food choices was fabulous! We really enjoyed the homemade meal in the little village in Beijing that Johnny took us to after our rickshaw ride. We also loved the place Carina took us to in the Longji area, a little private home above the picturesque terraces. The food and the setting were awesome!
All of our transfers getting to and from trains and airports were done very smoothly. We became very confident knowing that China Discovery would find us and get us to the places we needed to be! Though our time with our transfer guides in Chongqing and Yichang was sho, the guides were very good! Diana in Chongqing was VERY informative in the short time we were with her. She was upbeat and enthusiastic. When Laura needed to rest during our walk through the crowded market, she got us to a coffee house where we could be away from the crowds for a time to relax prior to our pre-cruise dinner.
The drivers were all competent and helpful. The vehicles were comfortable and of sufficient size to accommodate our needs. Having bottled water provided for us each day was very much appreciated
The hotel accommodations were all excellent! In Beijing we were so appreciative that our room had an air purifier that we could keep on while sleeping. It truly aided our ability to breathe more comfortably at night, especially since the air pollution was so bad at the time of our visit. You picked great hotels in good locations. It was easy for our group members to go out for walks and get to places of interest without having to go too far. Our only disappointment was that our Guilin hotel did not have air conditioning. Air conditioning can help to filter the air and make the room more comfortable. It was very hot in our room. The hotel staff was able to get us a fan which helped somewhat to relieve the heat. Finally, it was fabulous that you could accommodate Laura in rooms with her parents since this was an important travel request from our group.
The Century Legend cruise ship was wonderful! The small staff worked really hard to entertain us and make our experience great. The ship’s doctor responded to my situation promptly…minutes after I went up to talk to him at the conclusion of his speech on traditional Chinese medicine. He had me on an I-V with antibiotics within an hour, and repeated the same the following morning to make sure my lungs were clear. I know your company is not connected to Century Legend, but I thought you should know for future reference, since you make cruise arrangements.
WILLINGNESS TO RECOMMEND CHINA DISCOVERY
You & June did a wonderful job setting up our itinerary. All of the employees (guides and drivers) who worked with us during our tour were excellent! We would definitely recommend your company to other people who are planning a visit to China. We really enjoyed traveling exclusively with our small group. We received such wonderful attention, and such concerted efforts to make sure all of our travel needs were taken care of. We also appreciated that our request was honored NOT to make shopping a priority during our limited time to experience China. It was important for us to do as much sightseeing as we could in the short amount of time we were there.
The work on the part of China Discovery and all of its employees with whom we had contact was excellent!
One thing we noticed, especially during the Guilin part of our trip, is that the guides seemed fascinated with pointing out how rock formations look like some animal or another. We would have found it much more interesting and informative if we had heard more about how these formations came to be, as well as the overall geological history and the flora and fauna of the regions through which we were passing. Perhaps a note to pass on to the guides.
Finally, air pollution is a BIG problem for people visiting China! When we arrived in Beijing from Shanghai, the air quality was in the hazardous range. That continued the following day. Wearing a mask can help to filter the particulates from the air, but it cannot remove the poisons. I think part of my problem stemmed from breathing poisonous gases into my mask and then drawing these gases repeatedly back into my lungs.
I think people considering visiting China should be made fully aware of the potential problems of air quality before they book a tour. This is especially true for anyone who has any existing respiratory issues.
Also, since tourism is such a big part of the Chinese economy, I strongly urge your company, as well as any other tour companies you know of, to urge the government to take dramatic action to reverse the course of this devastating ecological problem! There are so many clean energy alternatives available today. Massive funds need to be poured into research and development, and a plan needs to be put in place to transition from coal-burning plants to something cleaner, and to transition from gas-fueled automobiles to hybrids and electric cars. I can’t stress this enough! I feel so sorry for the young children growing up in China today, not to mention everyone else who cannot escape the large cities, who must contend with this daily. And it is only going to get worse, if drastic action is not taken.
Given what I have just described above, it would have been highly interesting to me and the others in our group if the guides had informed us regarding what measures the government is taking to move toward use of renewable energy and its efforts to develop a more sustainable economy, assuming that they are doing something. I think this would be interesting to others as well.
Thanks again for all your efforts, Lyn!

Then we are back in Norway after 3 weeks in China. We had a great time also on the cruise. I have recommended you at tripadvisor already(-:
I think your service was excellent, everything went smoothly.
The cruise was really fun, even with bad weather. The cruise personell took very good care of us, we felt really welcome. We were only 3 weastern guest at the ship, and even if I and my husband managed without talking to any other guest, it would be my advice for you to give some information (if you can) about the guest profiles on the boat to other western clients.

Thank you very much for your help with our tour and for this note.
As you know we had some problems at the end due to Typhoon Haima in Hong Kong, but your help was invaluable in arranging an extra night at Guilin and the transport to the airport. It was nice to see Miss Liu again as our driver and Arthur was excellent. He has excellent spoken English and comprehension.
As to the questions:
1) We had a very good trip. There was a lot to do in a short time, but we’re grateful to have had the opportunity to see so much. The Reed Flute caves and the Show at Yangshuo were high spots - amazing! As you may know, our guide Lily modified the itinerary slightly, and this seemed to work out well. All the hotels were excellent. Miss Liu, though she has no English, was an exceptional and experienced driver in often demanding road conditions. Lily has very good knowledge and experience. Her spoken - and comprehension of - English is good. We thought it would be good to have been warned to take only a back-pack for the trip up to Pingan, and be ready to leave the rest of your luggage in the car or your Guilin hotel
2) I’m willing to willing to recommend our service to my friends.
3) We thought your planning and communication was very good, and you dealt with the Typhoon problem in a very reassuring way
4) See above. I’ve also revised the itinerary text, which you may find helpful:

The tour went well. We are pleasant with your service.
All the tour guides were good. But I must do some comments:
- Smiley at Guilin tour: She was excellent. The name is just her face. Always available to help us and very funny. Excellent guide!
- Wendy at Zhangjiajie tour: She was very professional. The weather didn´t help but she made all the efforts to minimize that. Highly recommended guide.
- Johnny at Xi’an tour: Excellent spoken English.
All the guides speak very well English and they help us with everything - hotel check-in, train station (where to go, read the ticket …), flights check-in. They had good knowledge about the places visited and their history.
About the sites visited, we enjoy all. China has beautiful landscapes. We had high expectations about Zhangjiejie mountains but we didn’t have lucky about the weather (very foggy and some rain). But Wendy went well showing us the best places to see something.
The travel between Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang is about 4 and half hours. We suggest that the car/van for that travel must be very comfortable and with more space for the legs. The food included in our program, generally was good. We enjoyed Chinese food and we taste very good dishes.
In general we are very satisfied with your company and if we return to China or have some friends visiting China, we will recommend your company.
About China. We arrive to our country with a new idea about China. We saw organized cities and good communications infrastructures. China has a very rich history. About travelling around China, high speed trains is must better than flights.
I send in attachment some photos.
Thank you and best regards.

Everything went well on the cruise. I am glad we took the time to do that trip between busy days in Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing. The cruise was as expected and we had no problems. Food was good, ship was very clean, service was good, tours from ship were good, etc.
The taxi driver who took us from the airport to the dock in Chongqing did not know where he was going but stopped to get directions. After the cruise we stayed at the Crown Plaza in Yichang and flew to Beijing the next day. No problems.
You were most helpful and I would certainly recommend you to others.

Booking for cruise was fine.
Information that would be useful to us will be the upgrade info that was offered and optional dinner on first night when no included.
We did end up upgrading to higher floor and also the meal package.
They were very nice to take care of us when we told them we were celebrating our 18th anniversary. They sent a cake to our table at dinner - unexpected surprise and lovely gesture. When we cruise in the US, usually we get wine at table. Since our upgraded meal included wine, the cake was very nice as we could share with other guests and make new friends.
Yes, I would recommend your service to our friends traveling to China.
